    Rhoads needs to apologize after that performance

    What a dumpster fire this year is turning into. There needs to be a house cleaning on the offensive side, AFTER signing day.

    This is a setback for the program. Nobody expected us to be world-beaters this year, but this is just unacceptable. The fans and stakeholders have stepped up in a major way and THIS is what happens.

    We're pretty much back to laughingstock status. Somebody wake me when the nightmare is over.

    My mother always used to tell me to never apologize for who you are.

    Let's not forget the defense didn't look very good, either. Another 30 or so dropped interceptions and horrible tackling. The two constants of Cyclone Football this year.

    Re: Rhoads needs to apologize after that performance

    I just want some accountability. Perfect example, and I could pick out probably 20 plays from the last 3 weeks, where our guys on 3rd down run a route that's 2 yards short of the sticks.

    Tonight. Down 64 points to Baylor and our Tight End is wide open on a 3rd and medium. He catches the ball, but he's 2 yards short of the sticks, dances around, and is tacked right where he caught the ball.

    That's just one small example of something that's not unique to the type of offense we run or who the offensive line coach is or which quarterback is in the game.

    Plays like that have literally COST US WINS this season. (Not officiating and not injuries). Here we are in the 6th game of the season and we're still making the same little mistakes that should be very simple to fix.

    Yea, but Baylor's offense is one of the best in the country. Their defense not so much. They probably could have score 100 tonight had they wanted to. The worst thing you can do against a team like theirs is to continually go 3 and out and put their offense back on the field.

    Re: Rhoads needs to apologize after that performance

    I wouldn't mind so much if we gave up 70 points trying to win the game with onside kicks and going for it on 4th etc. But to not even attempt to get anything going or call a fake punt or anything makes me sad.

    I agree 100%. The fans who bought record numbers of season tickets deserve better than this ****.

    I have a feeling this could take awhile. They might want to start the review on the bus to the airport so they finish up by game time next weekend.

    He's already shifted to watching samples, since there's no point seeing the same thing 5 times or whatever.

    Oh, well. I'm sure that Okie State has nothing to play for, so we've got that.

    Yep fans are doing their part. The coaching staff isn't.
