    Why down nine [did he elect] to punt with almost two-and-a-half minutes to play and no timeouts remaining?

    "You know what, in the end we weren't scoring twice with two minutes to go on our own 4-yard line," Stoops said.

    "I just thought it was futile."

    Stoops admitted keeping the score reasonable played into the decision, hoping that a nine-point loss might look better to pollsters than a 16-point loss.

    With possession at the OU 4, the Tigers would have had an easy chance of punching the ball in the end zone.

    "It's a long year. Who knows how poll people look at scores?" Stoops explained. "Had we had a reasonable amount, some kind of field position, had we shown any signs the previous three plays of making a play, we would have (gone for it). But I didn't see that.

    "And I'm coming off three-and-out, interception, three-and-out, some of the prior possessions."

    I'll be damned ... I mean, I knew it was possible, but I still thought "Surely not..."

    "My wife said a few years ago, bless her heart, 'I need to get you a new bed so you can sleep better,'" Pinkel said. "I told her when I quit coaching I'll sleep better."

    He was laughing when he said this, but he wasn't joking.

    And here's the good news. All his worrying and motivating seems to be working. As several of his players began arriving at the training complex Monday afternoon, they, too, had already moved past Oklahoma.

    "My celebration was over on Saturday night," said defensive end Aldon Smith. "There is a lot of football to go. It's time to step up a little bit more. A lot of teams get overconfident. They figure they beat a couple of teams and that's good enough. But we're still hungry. We still have a long way to go."

    These Tigers know what is at stake.
