Watch out for OSU in 2009
It’s Sunday morning, and I’m still marveling at the OSU-Texas game. Outstanding game. I’ll bet it’s one of the best 25 games I’ve ever covered, and I’ve covered probably 700.
I mentioned this earlier in the year, but it’s even more apparent now. The Cowboys were cursed by unfortunate timing. In 2008, OSU has produced an excellent team with a tough Big 12 schedule. Next year, the schedule softens, so watch out for the Cowboys.
OSU’s Big 12 road games are Missouri, Texas, Tech and Colorado. OSU’s home games are A&M, Baylor, Iowa State and OU. This OSU team is good enough to beat A&M, Baylor and Iowa State on the road. Put Missouri, Texas, Tech and Colorado in Stillwater, and I like OSU’s chances of winning all four. The Cowboys would have won that game yesterday if it was in Stillwater.
So if the home/road schedule flipped, OSU would be 7-0 going to Norman. I like the Sooners in that matchup, but that still leaves the Cowboys 7-1 in the Big 12 and at the very least tied for first.
OSU still could finish 7-1, but it won’t be easy, at Tech and home against the Sooners.
