Breaking down the latest OU football games from the SoonerScoop.com team
Oklahoma never led West Virginia Saturday night on Owen Field until the clock ran out. That's when Gabe Brkic hit a 30-yard field goal to give the Sooners a 16-13 victory over the Mountaineers. But this game will be remembered or something even more memorable. Fans were boo'ing Spencer Rattler. And others started chanting, "We want Caleb" during the game. How Rattler handles this going forward will define his legacy. But he also needs more help from the offensive line and some faith in the run game from his head coach and playcaller, Lincoln Riley. The defense had a very solid night holding WVU to just 226 total yards of offense. Carey and Eddie are here to break it all down and giving their advice to Rattler on how to handle the boo birds moving forward. It's another edition of the Eskridge Lexus Postgame Podcast.
Oklahoma beats Nebraska 23-16 today in Norman and everyone feels a different way about it. Heck, everyone on the Scoop staff feels a different way about it. Carey and Eddie start breaking it all down and why the offense and Spencer Rattler can't figure it out. Then we're joined by Josh McCuistion as the discussion turns up a notch. What is good about this team? Who is Spencer Rattler? What is this OU offense? Can it be fixed at this point or are we just waiting on an eventual disaster. Also, we let Josh get involved in some John Mayer discussion since he decided to join us. No recruiting talk tonight. This is just straight postgame podcast goodness as always.
This time the game really was over by halftime. Spencer Rattler was great, the defense was dominant, the week leading up to Western Carolina was brutal in practices. OU was so dominant on defense it was like one big nameless, faceless group. Danny Stutsman led the team in tackles. So what do you take out of a dominant performance against an overmatched opponent? All you can do is just keep moving forward and thank the lucky stars you aren't Texas or Iowa State this week. And you seek out that opponent that will help you find your old friend: adversity. And Texas? Seriously? Wow! Also the sun rises in the east and Iowa always beats Iowa State early in the season. Carey also started drinking a big glass of whiskey during this podcast and was probably a bit drunk at the end.
Oklahoma opened the season Saturday afternoon in Norman. And what looked like a blowout turned into a nail biter. Oklahoma's offense went stale in the second half and the defense gave up enough to make it interesting. We're left scratching our heads to what we saw, what went wrong and what actually worked. We breakdown just about the entire roster and coaching staff in this edition of the Eskridge Lexus Postgame Podcast. OU wins 40-35, but it'll be a week of reflection around here. That's starts now.
In our final podcast of 2020, we bring you the last Eskridge Lexus podcast of the season. Carey and Eddie broke down what we finally got to see together, a blowout bowl game win over an SEC team. We breakdown the stars of the game, the biggest plays and what this all means going forward. And in some strange way we hopefully are welcoming back a much more normal type of college football in 2021. The Sooners proved in the Cotton Bowl that they will be one of the programs to watch next season. We just need to know what players are still going to be around next season. So enjoy our final installment of the 2020 season and Happy New Year everybody!
After OU lost to Iowa State and started off their Big 12 Conference season 0-2, no one expected they would get a rematch in the Big 12 Championship game. But that's exactly what happened and the OU defense put up another monster performance up front and forced 3 interceptions out of Brock Purdy. Carey and Eddie breakdown Oklahoma's 27-21 over Iowa State and had out plenty of deserved praise. A bowl game will be announced soon and then the offseason could determine if these Sooners are going to head into 2021 as one of the favorites to win it all next year. The offense stalled, Lincoln Riley got too conservative and the game got close in the end. But the Sooners won it all again and continue marching forward to bigger and better victories in the future.
Oklahoma beat Baylor 27-14 Saturday night in the final home game of this crazy 2020 season. It wasn't the type of game anyone expected. OU's defense was ravaged by missing starters and Robert Barnes was moved to a starting safety position after he was moved to linebacker this year. The offense sputtered through much of the game, the offensive line struggled and Baylor looked like a team that was capable of shocking the Sooners. But even with so many players out, OU's defense stepped up and carried the offense, 12-yard punts, turnovers in the endzone, missing coaches and everything thing else college football upset gods wanted to throw their way. Carey and Eddie break it all down in this edition of the Eskridge Lexus Postgame Podcast.
It wasn't always easy, but Rhamondre Stevenson and the OU offense came alive at the end, and the OU defense held down the Oklahoma State Cowboys most of the day. Mike Gundy got wishy washy with his quarterbacks and Lincoln Riley looked like his vintage best self, dialing up some tricks and running circles around the Pokes on offense. Spencer Rattler had his best big game of his career and the OU pass rush made it impossible for OSU to get anything going offensively. The Sooners now control their own destiny as they work to get back to a Big 12 title game in Arlington. Eddie and Carey breakdown everything we saw Saturday night in a 41-13 beatdown in Norman.
Lots of turnovers on both sides and even more replay delays made the first half disjointed and muddied. But the Sooners just kept rolling against Big 12 competition. Spencer Rattler gave everyone a scare with a bruised hip and Austin Stogner still is a concern. But the defensive line had its most dominant day yet and the defense beat up KU's quarterback all day long. Alex Grinch continues to get production out of his youth on defense and Oklahoma just pounded Kansas into submission Saturday afternoon in Norman. It was good to be home but another big one happens in two weeks. OU works to get back control over its own destiny against Oklahoma State. Carey, Eddie and Bob have your complete wrap-up.
The Sooners keep getting better after their 0-2 start. With a 62-28 win over Texas Tech, OU is putting together complete performances on both sides of the ball. And now that Ronnie Perkins and Rhamondre Stevenson are back, OU has more weapons than ever. An easy win over Texas followed a key loss by OSU to Texas. And Kansas State lost at West Virginia. The Sooners are just a couple of weeks from controlling their own destiny in the Big 12. Carey and Eddie breakdown what we saw tonight in Lubbock in this edition of the Eskridge Lexus Postgame Podcast.
The Sooners go into TCU and play their only complete Big 12 game of the year. They almost did it against Texas, but they fell apart near the end just like they did against Kansas State and Iowa State. The hope was OU could build on what they showed in the OT period against Texas. That's exactly what they did on defense as Alex Grinch got his team to play their most complete game of the season. Eddie and Carey break down what they saw from our studios in Norman while Bob slaved away on his keyboard from Ft. Worth. Join us in trying to figure out how to survive in this new world where OU football is giving you almost everything you want to see. It's a strange place for us to find ourselves. Also, Carey tries to defend the legacy of Chris Chester while simultaneously showing why no one , including himself, remembers Chris Chester all that well. It's the Eskridge Lexus Postgame Podcast from SoonerScoop.com!
It was a crazy day as usual at the Cotton Bowl. OU appeared to have victory secured but the defense reverted to their form over the last two weeks. But did the Sooners start to find something on offense with Spencer Rattler and several receivers like Austin Stogner, Theo Wease and Drake Stoops? The defense used a lot of youngsters and it all looked really good. Lincoln Riley had a gut check as a coach. He wasn't perfect. He made some questionable decisions. But at least he hasn't been branded as a three time loser. Sam Ehlinger showed a lot of heart, but the OU defense won out in the end. The defensive line was really good again but the secondary joined in a little bit too. Eddie and Carey break it all down and we're ready for the bye week after a much needed win for Sooner fans.
AMES, Iowa - Carey is in Ames where the Sooners took on the Cyclones and it once again did not go in OU's favor. We expected a rebound after Kansas State. But it seemed like much of the same in Ames. The offense wasn't resilient, the defense was bland and uninspiring. Even the special teams had a massive gaffe during the game at a critical moment. Carey, Eddie and Bob all join up to talk about the game and the repercussions mean for OU. How bad could this all get? Has the OU program become #soft? Texas, TCU and Oklahoma State are still on the schedule. There aren't a lot of guaranteed wins left for this Sooners team. Spencer Rattler was fine, the defensive line was good, but everyone else, get ready for a tongue lashing. We're headed for something really interesting with OU and 2020. We just don't know how interesting yet.
In an especially NSFW version of the Eskridge Lexus Postgame podcast Carey and Eddie discuss the Sooners 38-35 loss to Kansas State Saturday afternoon. It's not the drunken podcast, but it's the bleep free podcast for those looking to get their full frustrations out with us. Spencer Rattler played like a 5-star for a while, but when prosperity turned to adversity, he wasn't ready. But it was the OU defense that was the real star of Saturday's shitshow. What happened Alex Grinch? And what does Lincoln Riley really need to fix when he looks in the mirror? He can start with penalties and the discipline of this football team. It's never a great time for a loss, but this is truly one of the most shocking losses in the post-Stoops era of OU football. The Eskridge Lexus Postgame podcast is back!
Spencer Rattler got his first start as an OU quarterback and he lived up to the hype and the expectations during a 48-0 route Saturday evening inside Oklahoma Memorial Stadium where social distancing and the wearing of masks were observed. Carey, Eddie and Bob breakdown what we saw from the pressbox and give you our takeaways from the opener. Spencer Rattler was the star, but what about Marvin Mims and other youngsters on the offense. The defense pitched a shutout and we breakdown all the new faces and improving performances we saw. Welcome back football! Welcome back SoonerScoop Postgame Podcast!
It's here. It's the postmortem on OU's loss to end the season. It was an ugly loss. The guys have plenty of things to say about plenty of people. Eddie finally gives out his true feelings on Jalen Hurts. We're still baffled at Bookie's decision to get himself ejected. We love Justin Broiles but he's got to go. It's our state of the program address, it's figuring out who's left? It's breaking down the quarterback position moving forward. It's our advice to all of you, to Alex Grinch, to players getting it done and not getting it done. We just let our opinions fly in this one so get your take bowls ready to be filled. It's the final podcast of 2019. It's the Eskridge Lexus Postgame podcast. One last time.
The gang comes to you live from Jerry World where we break down the Sooners Big 12 Championship overtime win over Baylor. The defense was awesome for most of the game, but a third string quarterback gave the Sooners fits. We hear from Lincoln Riley, Jalen Hurts and Kenneth Murray on the win. No one wanted to talk playoffs as a definite, but we all know the Sooners are headed in that direction. We breakdown everything that happened, good and bad. Jalen Hurts had some turnover problems again. Next stop, Atlanta or Scottsdale. We'll be ready to cover the team from either. It's the championship edition of the Eskridge Lexus Postgame Podcast on SoonerScoop.com
The boys are fresh off the trip to Stillwater where the Sooners put together their most complete performance of the season in a 34-16 victory over the Cowboys. Kennedy Brooks stole the spotlight from Chuba Hubbard and then the defense bashed him over the head with it. The Sooners were just dominating in the second half of play once again. Parnell Motley was an absolute star on the defensive side of the ball as he wreaked havoc on the OSU offense. Carey, Eddie and Bob are here to break it all down as the Sooners now move on to the Big 12 Championship game in Arlington next weekend.
On this edition of the Eskridge Lexus Postgame podcast... Well we didn't have to drive all over Texas this week but we do have a late night podcast for you after the Sooners beat TCU 28-24. After covering every second of this team the last three weeks, we're still having trouble making heads or tails of what this team really is. And what Jalen Hurts is as a QB. We understand if you are confused. Is it the defense, the playcalling, the quarterback, the turnovers, the lack of turnovers? There's a lot to like about this OU team. They move to 10-1 on the season and they'll play for another Big 12 Championship in Arlington. The defense is coming up with turnovers to seal the deal and we saw some improvement against TCU Saturday night. It's also good that Oregon lost to Arizona State. So why is it so hard to get excited about this OU's teams chances of reaching the playoffs yet?
It's hard to say we can't believe what we just saw on this week's edition of the Eskridge Lexus Postgame podcast because we were actually there to see it with our own eyes. And we couldn't stop watching it. Jalen Hurts was terrible, then he was amazing. The defense was the same way as they finally caught a hold of the turnover bug and ended up sealing the win thanks to some timely defense. The Sooners had the biggest comeback in program history Saturday night in Waco and it just happened to come against the undefeated Baylor Bears. Are the Sooners a lock for the Big 12 title game? Do they want Baylor again? Is the defense finally back? That's too many questions. We still can't believe what we just witnessed at McLane Stadium.
Oklahoma had two weeks to prepare to face Iowa State in Norman. For 3 quarters it looked like this team had taken the loss in Manhattan seriously and come out ready to become a dominant football team. Then the fourth quarter happened. OU's defense had been improved through the first seven games, then it fell apart against Kansas State. After Iowa State, we're left to wonder if this defense is losing it's luster. Carey, Eddie and Bob join up just after the game to talk about what we saw, where this team is headed and where Lincoln Riley and Alex Grinch have to go next. How messed up is this offense right now? Injuries are piling up and Jalen Hurts is still a kink in the running game. And what happened to all the playmakers we saw developing on the defensive side of the ball. Yes, the Sooners won, but with Baylor on the horizon, so many questions still remain.
It's the Eskridge Lexus Postgame Podcast with Carey, Eddie and Bob and we're coming to you from the Bill Snyder Family Stadium pressbox where the Sooners put out one of their worst performances in recent memory in a 48-41 loss to Kansas State. We're also joined by The Athletic's Jason Kersey to get his breakdown on what he saw and to give our thoughts on what we saw and what we heard in the postgame. Hear from Lincoln Riley, Alex Grinch, Jalen Hurts and Kenneth Murray during the podcast. Is it over for the Sooners and the playoffs? Probably. But holy crap what has happened in the Big 12 today. We're outta town. Time to head back in our Eskridge Lexus. Enjoy the pod folks! Sorry about the L.
The Eskridge Lexus Postgame podcast is back again after the Sooners took it to West Virginia 52-14 Saturday on Owen Field. Carey, Eddie and Bob are here to break it all down. Alex Grinch got his defense to avoid the Texas hangover while Jalen Hurts rebounded from his two turnovers against the Longhorns completing 16-of-17 passses for over 300 yards and 3 TDs. Is Kennedy Brooks taking over the running back position? We also breakdown the defensive performance that saw the OU defensive backs deflect pass after pass down field. But is there some worry about the penalty situation with one defender? We go stock up, stock down and hit on some of the days Big 12 results as well. It's the postgame edition you crave so enjoy it before we hit the road again next weekend for Manhattan, Kan.!
This edition of the Eskridge Lexus Postgame Podcast comes directly from the pressbox at the Cotton Bowl following the Sooners 34-27 victory over the Longhorns. The Sooners defense was dominant at times and overall, it was the best big game defensive performance in recent memory. CeeDee Lamb also put his mark on this series with a game for the ages. Jalen Hurts finally got to compare the stage of the Red River Rivalry to the Iron Bowl. And even though Hurts had his ups and downs and the Sooners were more dominating than the final score indicates, the defense made up for any deficiencies. Carey, Eddie and Bob break it all down with plenty of soundbites from Lincoln Riley, Alex Grinch, CeeDee Lamb, Jalen Hurts and even Tom Herman. The Sooners move to 6-0 and we break it all down. So much stock up, so little stock down. Eddie made College Gameday this morning too! It's the best breakdown podcast you're going to find as usual.
The road crew took more time than usual to get back from Lawrence, Kansas. But the Eskridge Lexus Postgame pod is finally here. It's really more of a preview of Texas since we recorded right after Lincoln Riley's Monday press conference. Plenty of clips from Riley as we wade through all the news not fit for print and just give you the highlights. Offensive line health, penalty problems, the massive momentum swings in the Red River Rivalry. We're also talking the rise of Rhamondre Stevenson and we still have your stock up and stock down report from KU. We don't harp too much on KU, but focus on what we learned from that 45-20 victory as it relates to the upcoming battle with Texas.
The Sooners rack up over 600 yards against Texas Tech during their Big 12 opener. No matter how much we try and nitpick the offense or question whether they can keep up this pace, they just keep producing. On this edition of the Eskridge Lexus Postgame Podcast we also breakdown the players who stood out and the reaction from the locker room after the win. How pissed were Lincoln and the players about the dirty hit on Kennedy Brooks? Where the heck was Adrian Ealy today? How did Brey Walker do in his first start? Where did we see the defense get better and who do we pick during stock up and stock down after such a beatdown? Here's your postgame pod because we know you've been asking ever since the final whistle.
We're podcasting from California and right near the Rose Bowl as Oklahoma comes in to Pasadena and takes care of UCLA 48-14. Lincoln Riley successfully guards against the letdown and Jalen Hurts dominates through the air and on the ground once again. We talk stock up and stock down. What players impressed us the most during OU's blowout win over the Bruins. We also talk about how OU fans are going to have to get used to star players being substituted for during key moments in the game. Alex Grinch is looking to develop depth and competition, even if that means OU's best players take a seat on the bench for a series. It's a strange sensation, but one that you're going to have to get used to. The tight end made his way back onto the field Saturday night as well. It's time for us to hit the airport because we wanted to get this to you as quickly as we can. So enjoy another edition of the Eskridge Lexus Postgame Podcast straight from the road.
