    So just because they lost, means it was a trap game? Idiotic.

    Playing a good team on the road is not a trap game. OU will be in the Top 25 next week and is a tourney team.

    It is not a trap game when you are playing a team the quality of OK on their home court. I don't think you get the concept of a trap game.

    It wasn't a trap game. A trap game is when you overlook a bad team because of your next game. Oklahoma is not a bad team.

    Not a trap game.
    Road game against a good team.

    If you think this is a trap game you are pretty dumb. Just because they lost doesn't mean they were looking ahead. It means that Oklahoma hit everything and we didn't hit as much.

    9 posts about it in the game thread and now you start a thread about it. Don't hurt your arm patting yourself on the back.

    Losing to a good team on the road is not a trap.

    People said it wasn't a trap game because OU is a decent team at home. Trap games are playing @Tech and @TCU.

    Your post is bad and you should feel bad.

    Trap game against a solid B12 team on the road? I don't think it means what you think it means.

    Trap games are when you play bad teams that should never beat you. We played OU in Norman, a team that was picked to finish towards the top of the Big 12. They are decent team. We should have won, but we got beat. Doesn't make it a trap game at all though.

    Well I didn't like in Kane's interview when he said he only watched a little bit of the KU vs OU game...

    I think people are looking too much into what their own definition of a trap game is. Yes it was on the road, and yes OU will probably be in the NCAA, but that's a game ISU should win.
