Steve Physioc — Fox Sports

“I don't think a loss to a great Florida State team should do anything to diminish Bob Stoops' brilliance. I like to take a look at games on an individual basis. This week, in Campbell Stadium, in front of 83-thousand crazies, with a Heisman candidate in EJ Manuel leading the Seminoles, would be a real challenge for any team in college football.”

Mike Kern — Philadelphia Daily News

“If they win this one and lose at Oklahoma State, people won't remember this one. I'm sure if they go 12-0 and lose the last game again, he'll hear it and nobody will care he went 12-0 even though that means he would have won a lot of big ones to get there. It's the world we live in.”

Ed Cunningham — ESPN

“The only reason it is important is for this season's national title aspirations. OU's program is at a place very few programs ever reach. Year in and year out they are in contention for at the least their conference championship and almost as often part of the BCS title race. One game, on the road against a very good opponent, is not going to negatively impact what they've built in Norman.”
