Last year I traveled to Ohio State to watch Tulsa play the Buckeyes. Right before the game started, the Ohio State players lined up in the tunnel directly across from me, interlocked arms, and started swaying side to side. That was a moment I wont soon forget; the iconic scarlet and gray, the deafening 100,000 person-roar, Urban Meyer leading the charge, it was amazing. It was at that moment that my TU optimism faded, and it dawned on me how daunting the task ahead was.
Last night when Rudolph dropped a 40 yard bomb to Tyron Johnson, and the very next possession a 40 yard bomb to James Washington was the equivalent to what I experienced in Columbus. 2-first round receivers running deep every play, a first-round QB throwing it to them, and a running back who ran for over 1000 yards as a true freshman last year. Oklahoma State has an extremely talented offense, and it was on full-display last night. Let’s get to my thoughts.
