Canechic...why does Boise NEVER come out flat?

Did we do that against Duke?

Did we do that againt UVA?

emorycane

Can someone help me out? where the are people going to park for this game? And what section are you in?

canechic

Different kids! They always have something to prove. They play with a chip on their shoulder kinda like the old Miami teams. Everyone expects them to "eventually" lose. I bet they do not have one 5 star recruit on their team. And when is the last time they had a top 10 recruiting class?

And south beach and the grove is not a 15 minutes from campus, lol!

canechic

One other thought most of them know they will only be college players? They are playing hard in college knowing this is all they have?

Sebastian

Nevada will end all that Boise noise

would you believe Kellen Moore only had two scholly offers....boise st and eastern washington....he was a 4 star qb...who has better talent evaluators the U or eastern washington?

solarcane

Boise even if they were a 3A high school team are better coached at every postion than we are.

Their players play with more intesity than we do.

They don't beat themselves with penalties like we do.

That would be the same no matter what conference they were in, face the facts.

The petty jealousy over teams that just out play us gets to the point of ridiculous on here at times.

I can almost justify the bitter envy when Florida was about 10 times better than us, but why hate Boise because we suck?
I don't get it.

But... but... how many players do have they have in the NFL??.. but wait wait... we play in the ACC our guys came from Dade county.. and on and on and...............
yea, has a hollow ring to it to me too.

Sooners taking aim at Miami's home winning streak record

NORMAN — Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville knows all too well the juggernaut his Red Raiders are about to encounter.


OU quarterback Landry Jones (12) pats Ryan Broyles (85) on the helmet after Broyles caught a Jones' pass for a touchdown in the third quarter during the college football game between the University of Oklahoma (OU) Sooners and the University of Colorado Buffaloes at Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman, Okla., Saturday, October 30, 2010.

“We won 55 straight home games when I was coaching down there in Miami,'' said Tuberville, an assistant for the Hurricanes from 1986-93. “The players take pride in it and the fans take pride in it.

“When you get something like that going, you get confidence.”

All told, Miami won an NCAA-record 58 straight home games from 1985-94.

But today, in its final home game of the season, Oklahoma will look to extend the nation's longest active home-winning streak to 36 games in Norman where life has three certainties: death, taxes and OU hammering the visiting team into oblivion.

No matter the opponent. No matter how good Sooners are or not.

And the more OU keeps winning, the less Miami's record seems untouchable.

Especially with who the Sooners have visiting Norman in the coming years.

"Florida State took a good football team into (Norman) and got beat by 30,” said Tuberville, who compares the way the Sooners intimidate opponents at home now to the way “The U” did during its rise to prominence.

“It's going to be tough for anybody to go in there and play well.”

Just ask the Red Raider players still around from Tech's last trip to Norman. The Red Raiders were undefeated and ranked second in the country. But up against the Sooner Magic of Owen Field, they stood little chance. Tech trailed 42-7 at halftime and left town with a 65-21 beat down.

With another home win over the Red Raiders, the Sooners will move into a tie with USC (2001-07) for the sixth-longest home winning streak since World War II.

The Sooners may still be 23 wins away from tying Miami's record.

But considering how overpowering OU has been at Owen Field — an average margin of victory of four touchdowns against ranked foes and a 71-2 overall record in the Stoops era — that record may not be out of reach.

After all, had OU not dropped a 17-10 stunner to TCU to open the 2005 season, the Sooners would be just five games away from breaking that mark.

Take away arguably the biggest upset in Big 12 history — when 3-7 Oklahoma State shocked the Sooners 16-13 in 2001 — and OU would have already shattered Miami's record.

Those two games show that anything can happen these days in college football, including Tech ending that streak today despite being two-touchdown underdogs.

But looking ahead, it might take an upset of that proportion to keep the Hurricanes' record intact.

The Sooners' next 22 home games look like this: Tech three times; Tulsa, Missouri, Texas A&M, Iowa State twice; Ball State, Kansas, Kansas State, Notre Dame, Baylor, OSU once; and five non-conference opponents yet to be determined. All games OU should be decent to heavy favorites.

Then on Sept. 13, 2014, the Sooners gets Tennessee, which — barring other schedule changes — would be for 58 straight.

Who knows if OU's streak gets that far.

But — Tuberville says and the past shows — it's going to be tough for anyone to come into Norman and play well enough to end it.

you obviously have not done your homework sir...TB is no J12...just because they went to the same school does not mean he is a clone...he is a lot stronger and more mobile than jacory...he can throw sideline to sideline on a rope...he is 6'3" 190lbs...jacory was 170 when he came to the U...and he has broader shoulders that will allow him to put on more weight...

please do not fall into the trap of saying he is a clone when the only thing they have in common is the school they play for....

its like saying colin mccarthy is a dan morgan clone...not even close


but to answer your question...we will not know if we are in the running for any recruits until after the season...because if we lose to GT and VT then lose our bowl game randy is gone...and recruits know this and are playing the waiting game...
