Two Oklahoma Post-Game Thoughts

Soooooooo, to paraphrase a scene from an old Simpsons episode: Was this a good ending or a bad ending? It's an ending. That's enough.

1. Hat Tip to Lon Kruger and a game bunch of Sooners. I don't want to damn OU with faint praise, but even the most ardent Boomer Sooner would admit that they shot WAY the hell over their heads from the perimeter tonight. Unlike the trip to Stillwater, a sizable number of OU fans showed up as empty seats. You can't say OU rode a wave of energy coming from the crowd. It was a nice crowd but hardly raucous. You can't even say it was about Missouri being flat. See that would be a lazy narrative. (Ahem... I'm looking at you ESPN announcers.) The Tigers may have started slow but they landed a fair number of haymakers along the way that staggered Oklahoma, who managed to get off the deck and survive them.

2. Whatever doesn't kill us can only make us stronger, right? Oklahoma landed more than their fair share of haymakers as well. One more thing to like about this team as that this crew can really take a punch but they don't take a lot of combinations. That is, they make mistakes but they don't let a mistake beat them a second time while sulking about it. At some point, I don't know when, that's gonna matter
