Seem perhaps a bit low. With JG, early in the season, breaking in a new receiver corps, against a good team, I'd say we are limited to 14-17 points. Not sure that's enough to win, and in fact I would have expected the line to be closer to 10.

Flame away if you will, but JG limits us. Regardless of whether he is the 'best' option, with him at QB, we don't have a complete set of options on offense.

It is what it is.

The best option or the safe option? If BM didn’t play so wreckless and careless he at the very least adds another dimension to the game. That being said I sadly agree. The game early in the season will be a big moment for him and his play will suffer along with the young kids

I expect line play to favor UT but unless we can pass with some consistency and replace a starting OLB and MLB with consistency then they have an advantage there. Warrior will be missed at DB but there is plenty of experience back there.

i agree with everything u said, BUT its the OU defense. We could probably get 25-30 on them by mistake.

MERGE (ha ha, can I tell @Freak that?)

The spread is lower than I would have thought. I would have thought OU would have been a 7-10 point fave on a neutral field which would make at OU in the 10-13 point range. I do think the COVID issues will help us more than them (will OU have enough reps to get timing down before they play us).

Whoops. I've been too busy reading coronavirus threads. Lol.

Also, with the loss of Taylor, Bituli, and Warrior, that gives me a little heartburn.
