If Kent State sneaks into the top 16 and the BCS had a buyout policy, I am sure the Sugar Bowl would pay Kent State not to come. Your thoughts?

If that weren't against the rules, then maybe. Kent State would be the worst BCS team ever — by far. It would be a travesty if they got into the Sugar Bowl.

How many OU players will make the All Big 12 team this year?

I'd say maybe 4 or 5 at the most. Kenny Stills, possibly an offensive lineman, Tony Jefferson or Javon Harris, and maybe Landry Jones if he has another really big game.

Would OU fans even want to see OU in the Fiesta Bowl? I imagine Oregon would run like wild Ducks and score 100! Thoughts?

That would a really tough matchup, especially with the way OU's defense has played lately. As strange as it sounds because of the SEC's dominance, I think OU would have a much better chance to beat Florida.

Why is Justin Brown going back to Penn State to get his degree?

Transferring his classes back was the fastest way for him to get his degree. He would have to stay at OU for another semester to complete a degree there.

Does TCU possess the fire power in their run game to control the clock and keep the Sooner offense on the sidelines?

I don't think so. I think TCU has a good run game. The quarterback's ability to run is something that OU has had a problem with the last few weeks, but I don't think that TCU's offense is as good as the ones that OU has seen. And I don't think that TCU can keep up with Landry Jones if he has another game like he just had against OSU.
