Sooners Win!

What a shocker. I figured between the loss of Blake Griffin to injury and Keith Clark to academics, the Sooners were "done for". They looked some kind of ugly in the first half, but rebounded to defeat Texas Tech on Saturday afternoon in Norman. We know the Red Raiders are a good team, they beat Stephen F Austin earlier this year. Longar Longar has thrived under the tutelage of someone other than Kelvin Sampson, and Taylor Griffin played by far his best game of the year.

It remains to be seen how the Sooners will fare on the road in a tough Big 12 South, but they'll need to escape with a win or two away from Lloyd Noble to capture the attention of the NCAA selection committee.
