This is the best team in the country, I think.
On paper that may be hard to argue. However, unless and until Stoops wins some big games, that will be the detractor for me. I simply don't see him winning two in a row, let alone the stumble(s) they may face looking at their schedule. TCU will be better and that's not a home game, plus it precedes the game against Texas in Dallas. At ISU the week before Baylor at home, then going to T-Tech. They'd better stay focused is all I can say, I Stoops would not be my first choice to make that happen.
I tend to agree, typically his teams can get lost during the season and trip up. I think the three straight games away from home (only one true roadie) could be tricky, and to me the only game I look at and say "that's definitely a potential game they could lose" is Baylor at home, which I assume will be a night contest because they both should be ranked high.
Ye olde "on paper" is certainly a big option here for the Boomers and I think you're right Dave. Big Bob has to prove he can keep a team focused for 12 games.
