WACO, Texas —
One way to look at it? Thursday night marked the fourth time this season OU failed to score more than 20 points.
It’s happened before in the Stoops era — Landry Jones’ first season at quarterback; Rhett Bomar’s only season at quarterback; Nate Hybl’s first season at quarterback — but it’s never happened nine games into a season.
Say this much for Heupel, who’s bound to once again become public enemy No. 1 among a riled up Sooner Nation: he tried two quarterbacks, he called a reverse on the first play from scrimmage, for better or worse, he took his shots.
But in the context of sketchy offensive success that’s plagued OU all season, it comes off as more desperate than inventive and more throwing-stuff-at-a-wall-and-hoping-it-sticks than reasoned brilliance.
Anyway, it’s just another game. Not unlike so many others.
