Winning Is Hard Podcast: Buy or Sell Red River Showdown Edition

New, 15 comments

Plus, keys for Texas to avoid a three-game losing streak

NCAA Football: Texas at Oklahoma The Oklahoman-USA TODAY NETWORK

It’s 8:00 AM and...there’s a new Winning is Hard podcast. Oh, and OU sucks!

Wescott Eberts and Cameron Parker get you prepared for the Red River Showdown with a quick discussion on the Sooners and the Longhorns.

We open the podcast with Lincoln Riley’s dominance over Tom Herman and how the Texas - Oklahoma game will create Steve Sarkisian’s own narrative, win or lose on Saturday.

Then we discuss Oklahoma’s offensive problems, but also how their defense can be a separate problem for the Texas offense (5:00) before getting into the keys of the game (10:00) including who has the edge in the battle of the trenches (13:00), and how Alex Grinch will try and stop Bijan Robinson (16:00).

We also play “Buy or Sell” with Wescott (19:30) discussing if Bijan is the best RB in the country, is Texas now the favorite in the Big 12, do the Longhorns HAVE to win on Saturday, is the defense becoming a problem, and will we get another one-score game?

Finally, we wrap up with talk on the Longhorns' slow starts against Oklahoma over the past few games (27:00) and why Bijan (you better sit down for this) will be the key to the game (28:30).

Thanks for listening! Cheers.
