Delton was incredibly fast .. his initial burst through the line was impressive.

Yes, like I said earlier, he was a game changer. Incredible burst and seemed very comfortable back there. Made one pretty good pass down the middle in limited attempts. Should be interesting!

Thanks, I didn't get to see it. It should be TCU's first real test with a running QB.

If you guys get a chance to see Grier in person, by all means do. I was awfully impressed with the kid.

They went from 17 yards (net) rushing in the first half to finishing the game with 140, he accounted for 79 of the final 140 (I think 25 of that came in OT) and 52 came when he was fresh and entered the game on their 3rd drive in the 3rd quarter (nice change of pace from the wizard). TCU shouldn't have any issues with that kid and the passing QB is cooked with bum knees. HE's quick, but I'm not sure he's a good enough passer. He only tossed the rock 5 times. Also, He had 3 rushes over 10 in regulation with the long being 22 yds.

Hopefully they keep him in check and force him to throw the football. Hopefully Sonny makes more of a concerted effort to run the football on Saturday as well.

I would like to feel confident in the Horn's, but I'm just not there yet. I am hopeful we can keep it close. Kicking will be the difference. We miss 2 field goals and lose by 3.

Hopefully he gets sacked a couple of time and gets the wind knocked out of him.

In for the week.

I think the sooners bounce back and hand it to Texas after that loss last week.

I was in Norman for a wedding Saturday and enjoyed listening to the game on sooner radio as well as all of the defeated fans at the hotel.

Baylor has gotten "better" each game but really dumb mistakes have plagued their ability to stay in the last 2 games when they were close. Bears lose by 40 in Stillwater.

Kansas State hasn't beat a top 10 team at home since 2006. I think GP gets the best of his mentor this week. Chance of rain doesn't excite me....

As we have seen lately, the betting lines have been flawed. It's hard to pick some of these games due to injuries, weather, and the intangibles. I'm just going to pop some popcorn, open a cold beverage, and enjoy the parody of league play. Lots of competitive games on paper this week.

I sure wish Oklahoma had not lost last week. Would have been much easier to beat them this week. I am afraid they will come in hyped up, not overconfident and play a game like they did against Ohio St. Mayfield is a cocky *****, but if he gets going he will be hard to stop. Texas D needs to continue playing like they have and the O needs to score a lot points. For that the need Sam to be the QB and Toneil to be the RB.

I think the Frogs escaped with a W on one of the 'Bad Kenny' games last week. Prolly will be a couple more. Not holding my breath....

21-17 Horns.

Defensive struggle.....or Texas will win big. The D will shut OU down just like they did Iowa State.

Yep, lucky draw on the WV blocked into WV returner by WV to score a TD from the 23 when they couldn't move the ball down the field and the overturned WV interception were huge.

That was a huge call and definitely swung a lot of momentum from WV to the frogs. I think that single play changed the eventual outcome of the game.

I think ou wins honestly, simply because Texas is bad on offense and I'm not sold on the defense verses a qb that can and will make some off schedule stuff. Hope I am wrong and ou gets skull drug though.

If Malik Jefferson plants Baker Mayfield at the 50 yard line to cap off the W, would be the perfect day.

fixed it for me. There will still be coverage breakdowns at times for Texas. And they still have trouble with gap responsibility if they get confused. I'm not ready to call them good until they have the level of success they've been having against the good spread B12 teams.

But this just goes to show that it should be a good game.

No.....he plays Rover. Wheeler is the MLB.

Hopefully Gary Johnson gets some more playing time to give Malik some help with speed on the outside.

Wheeler looks like Ben Johnson but runs like Tom Brady or me... Slowest chiseled black athlete that I have ever seen..

What about McCulloch? Think that's how you spell it.

Freeman and Boyd can both play too.

McCullough plays on passing downs and replaces Nashon Hughes....

He and Crazy Hagar come barreling in on 3rd and long.

They have some depth. I think there are 3 more on the roster. I'm ready to see Malik go off.
