    Dad's out of jail and will see his son live for the first time.

    Does it make a difference in how he plays?

    I think it might make a difference in Stoops' gameplan. I bet AP gets even more carries than usual. Good news? Bad news? Tough to tell. I doubt our secondary will get picked on as much, I suppose that could be good news.

    I don't think Stoops will adjust his gameplan based on this. He'll see a defense vulnerable to the short passing game and the ability to open up the run as a result. I predict a balanced offense by OU.

    He will see a defense that gave Cody Glen a career game also. He will more than feature AP - he cannopt afford another loss and the 9 turnovers are reduced if you just hand off to AP. I woulkd be surprised to see a short passing game from Oklahoma when you have AP. Expect 30 carries.

    there is always extra pressure when someone you care about is watching live. If we can shut him down and make him look stupid at some point that is a great confidence killer.

    I put 8 in the box and make them throw. If you can't beat 'em, at least rain on AP's parade!

    its never a good thing for us if arguably the best back in the country (besides wolffe of NIU) has extra motivation to perform his best.
