When you turn the ball over, it's very hard to win. They are going to happen, but when there are multiples, you pretty much lose.
OU's D linemen are a little hard to read. 3 or maybe 4 were out in spring with various injuries, surgery (minor) and so forth. Gave the younger guys more reps and the future looks good. Your boy McFarland came on strong at the last of the season and it's about time. The coaching staff comes out with the usual blah, blah and only time will tell.
I'm encouraged, but remember that I am an optimist by nature. I've sat through games with my wife in the cold, rain, heat and like most of us, win or lose, stayed til the final gun yelling my head off for the Sooners.
I well remember the 1960 season when the OU stands were only about 1/3 full. But the ones that were there were true fans. DKR could have beaten OU by 60 points that year, but he held up and the final was 24-0.
Bud autographed his first book to me and also a 1953 ND program with "To a loyal fan" Bud Wilkinson.
