Chattanooga Review

I left the game early on Sat. the primary factor was my father-in-law wasn’t feeling well. The second factor was the Sooners were ahead 50-0 with about 2 minutes to play in the first half, and storms were headed towards the arena. Here are the five things we learned from Saturday night’s game.

1) Chattanooga is not winning the FCS Division championship this year.

2) At $49.00 per seat, the Sooners netted about $3.5 million from this slaughter.

3) If the Sooners ever play a team this bad again, I’m staying home.

4) The new video screen is cool, and the sound system is awesome.

5) The scoreboards on the sideline added little value; the scroll of scores telling us that Maryland beat Delaware would have been a nice touch, but they never gave us the final score of the Boone State game, and there were rare updates on Missouri-Illinois or Alabama-Clemson.

You may be wondering, then, what we actually learned about the team.


This was a complete mismatch. This whole matchup was courtesy of Middle Tennessee State pulling out of a commitment to be our cupcake for a home and home series with Mississippi State. Ones vs twos would have been a better matchup. Evaluating the Sooners after this would be like trying to evaluate the Harlem Globetrotters after a game against the Washington Generals. You leave knowing Curly Neal can dribble well, but you knew that before the game also.

Cincinnati should be a much more entertaining contest.
