    I just don't get why we don't run the ball. I wonder if we ever gave Hall the ball twice in a row.

    I haven’t watched a ton of Texas this year, and I know they just about lost to KU, but the way our offense looked today we aren’t beating a whole lot of the teams left on the schedule. Last year Texas was beatable as well, and we didn’t even show up

    First two loses it was a mistake or two. This game we just played like crap. This was an inexcusable loss and falls on the team for executing like garbage.

    If Brock gets back to throwing the ball like a human being, will still beat ku and Texas.

    They also just lost to TCU so Texas and kinda trash right now too. I’m not optimistic against Oklahoma but every other game is winnable if we don’t continue shoot ourself in the foot

    Not sure why Hall & Purdy don't run a bunch more? At least Purdy knows how to gift wrap huge upsets though!

    This. They will be fine and I like them to win all games other than maybe OU. This was one of the worst games they have played and we had a chance to tie that game late.

    The last 3 possessions I don’t we handed the ball off once. Still plenty of time to keep running when only down by 7. Don’t get the decision to keep throwing non stop

    We beat TCU handily, and they beat Texas ... so, I'd say we at least have a shot??!??

    What was with Brock throwing his back foot most of hte day? Then turns around and steps into to a pass like he should only to over throw wide open reciever by 5 yards.

    Offensive play calling was terrible. All but abandoned the run early on. Purdy was MIA the entire game. Defense did enough in the second half to win. The coaching staff did not have the team prepared.

    The last possession we ran 3 plays. The possession before that we ran 2. And the one before that we ran 4 which included the handoff to Breece that could have been a loss of 10, but he reversed field and managed to only lose 3 and we eventually had to punt. It’s kinda hard to hand the ball off consistently when Brock was just giving it right back.
