ESPN’s analysts sweet on Sooners
CAMPUS CORNER — ESPN’s endless supply of pundits has weighed in on conference champs and who will play for the BCS title in January in Nawlins. (Your Sooners are treated kindly by the Worldwide Leader — 11 of 18 analysts have them in the title game.)
First, let’s qualify some of this. To me, an Urban Meyer or Kirk Herbstreit vote counts as, like, two or three votes. Compared to, say, a Craig James or Bob Davie vote. We’ll grant them one-fifth power. Maybe. Matt Millen should get a zero vote. I don’t understand his relevance to football, generally, much less the college game.
Consider each pundit accordingly in this table.
But know that OU is picked by all but three “experts” as the favorite to win the Big 12. Ed Cunningham and Davie both went for Texas A&M. Brock Huard picked … Oklahoma State. No one stuck their necks out for Texas, so that ought to make you feel better.
Analysts who have Sooners in national title game and opponent:
Alabama-Oklahoma: (ME. Mike Bellotti. James. Meyer. Millen. David Pollack.)
