Can OU beat Tech?
 
OU SHOULD beat Tech, but the Sooners have taken much better teams to Lubbock and lost. The Red Raiders aren't as good as some of those past years, but Lubbock has been a tough place for OU to win in recent years.
 
OU has to play much better at Tech, and that starts with Landry Jones. He can't turn over the ball like he did vs. K-State.
 
As far as noise, are you allowed to clap when the other team is at the line?
 
This noisemaker issue is related to artificial noisemakers. People can still cheer and chant and go crazy whenever. But once the football is set, no more artificial noisemakers.
 
Not sure what rules might be out there for basketball. Stay tuned for that.
 
The paddles are part of the noise at OSU, but they aren't the only noise being made. OSU is actually a pretty loud home environment, and the paddles help that. But OSU will still be loud, even without the paddles.
 
Is OSU better than we think or is Texas worse than we think?
 
I don't think Texas is as good as some people think. Maybe the Horns will show otherwise Saturday, but to this point, they haven't been tested, and I'm just not ready to assume that they're a ton better than a year ago.
 
Yes, Texas is better, but how much better? I'm not convinced they're a bunch better.
