"The Oklahoma Sooners will win the National Championship... Book it."

Skip Bayless posted this on his Twitter the other day, and even though I hate the guy, I have to agree with him. The Sooners are returning star QB Landry Jones whose college career is looking better than the man he replaced, Sam Bradford. Jones' favorite receiver is back too in Ryan Broyles who has put up beastly numbers the past two years. Let's check some stats DJ.

Landry Jones- 4718 Yds/38 TD's/12 Int's/337 YPG/146.3 Rating--- all this was good for the second best quarterback in the league last year behind the QB from Hawaii. (And yes I think Landry Jones is better than Cam Newton.)

Ryan Broyles- 131 Rec/1622 Yds/14 TD's--- and he posted 15 TD's the year before, look for him to be the favorite target AGAIN.


And yes, yes, I know that the Sooners lost DeMarco Murray, but when have the Sooners not had a good RB to replace the one who just left? If the Sooners are known for anything, its quarterbacks and running backs. I'll talk about their RB situation next arg.

Parting fact: They're returning 16 starters to a Big 12 Champion team. Scary.


The team I have winning it all finished the season ranked 3rd while the Sooners were 6th.

Not too far off but the Sooners lost their starting RB while my team returns a player that has to be considered a Heisman favorite.

He had an excellent sophomore season running for 1,546 yards on 230 carries (5.9ypc) with 21 rushing TD's. He also caught 17 passes for 208 yards (12.2ypc) for 3 more TD's. He needs to step it up this year as a receiving threat but I think he will do that to be even a more dangerous player for his team

The returning QB completed 61.5% of his passes for 221ypg, 7.98ypa, 30 TD's to 9 INT's, just 10 sacks with a 151 QB Rating. Not to mention his 93 carries for 486 yards (5.2ypc), 37.3ypg with 5 TD's.

He also has a 6-5 WR returning who caught 36 passes for 396 yards (11.0ypc) with 2 TD's

As well as a TE returning who caught 24 passes for 418 yards (17.4ypc) with 4 TD's.

My selection is Oregon who I think will end up winning the BCS in 2012.

BRING IT!!!!!

More to come, Kmac. Good luck, it has been a while. Too long.


Oregon is overrated and was exposed last season. In their win against Stanford, they were getting a butt-whoopin until they knocked Stanford's best receiver unconcious and they had the pleasure of playing in Autzen which is one of the most difficult stadiums to win in... I say they lose to Stanford in Palo Alto like they did in 2009 with the same players they have now.

Ok, on to the Sooner's running back situation...

They will likely go with a dual running back set of Roy Finch and Brennan Clay... before you dismiss them as "n00bz" let me throw some stat knowledge at you...

Roy Finch last year as a 2nd string RB...

85 carries/398 Yards/4.7 YPC/2 TD's... Oh and another quick fact, Rivals.com lists him as the #4 RB in the country.

Brennan Clay as a 3rd string..

36 Carries/127 Yards/3.5 YPC/0 TD's.... not great, but not bad for a 3rd string.

Cuttin' this short DJ, gotta go fly. Defense is next.


Stanford is a DAMN good team. And you brought up a win by the Ducks? Why, thank you. I am sure I would not have been able to point out the fact the Ducks won.

Thanks for that.

The Cardinal and Ducks will battle it out again for the title and are bringing credibility to their Conference. The Ducks have a better overall team imo.

Oklahoma lost to Missouri (36-27) and Texas A&M (33-19). The only team the Ducks lost to? Was the #1 ranked Auburn Tigers.

The Ducks were 4th in the nation running the ball, 39th in passing, 1st in offensive scoring and 12th in scoring defense.

OU was 83rd in rushing and will be without Murray. Not a great sign. They were also 3rd in passing ypg, 14th in scoring offense and 33rd in scoring defense.

Bob Stoops is an overrated coach who doesn't get his team to perform in the big games. He took over in 1999 and won the 2000 National title with the former coach's players. Since? He has a 3-5 record in BCS games and has not been able to win another national title. Leading many to believe he is in fact an overrated coach.

The Sooners lost their MLB. He died. Big loss on the defensive side of the ball.


Yes, the Sooners lost a MLB to an overdose on painkillers. Yes, it hurts the depth of their team. But how much overall impact does losing a MLB that only played 5 games last year and had a major heart condition? Not much.

The Sooners Defense last year ranked 33rd giving up 21.9 PPG.

BUT they also had 17 INT's which was 7th most.

AND they are returning 9 out of 12 defensive starters.

Let's not forget the fact that Bob Stoops is a REALLY GOOD coach.

Oh yeah, and the Sooners are expected to start the season at either 1 or 2 in the rankings and have a pretty cake schedule. Their only real tests are against Florida State who they demolished last year, and lost their QB to the draft... and against Oklahoma State whom they also beat last year. Texas is still in a rebuilding stage and won't pose a threat, Missouri lost a lot of their starters, including their star QB...

Who is going to challenge the Sooners?

Nobody. The Sooners run the table, and win the National Championship Game.

Good luck. Give me some time do some research on who is returning on the top teams from last year.
