OK so sour grapes aside, and I have plenty, but I think there is a big picture argument here that no one is talking about. The style points that have been moving Oklahoma up the polls the last several weeks (last week enough to jump Texas in both human polls) therefore setting up basically an even split with Texas in this rankings have been from scoring points - lots of points.
(Now I know that it was the computers that put OU over the top, but for arguments sake, stay with me)
Now Mack, and many other coaches out there have stopped considering running up the score since they took out Margin of Victory from the computers deeming it unimportant. But this year's national championship game could be determined by simply that - running up the score.
Anybody think that we could not have put 50+ or 60+ up against A&M if we keep our foot on the gas the whole time? How about Kansas? When did Colt come out against Colorado or Mizzou? And what about our defenses? How many 4th quarter "Meaningless points" did we give up because our second string was in the game?
All I heard today was "Oklahoma scored 60+ points the last 4 games...." I don't like that this was rewarded. I don't like what that means for college football.
