Top of the morning to you one and all. This eighth session of the Monday Morning QB Club is hereby in session. With the ever-so-critical mid-term elections here we hope you join us in being politically correct in your admonitions and your effusive comments. Any of you know what I just said? What I really mean is when you compliment or trash someone today, do it so it sounds as if you didn’t mean it when you really did.  Lady and gentlemen. Let’s give it up to our man in chargeManny the Moderator. Check that, Manuel the Moderator.

Manuel the Moderator: Thanks Chuck, great to be with you after another “W” number 35 in a row.

Lumber Lady: Hey, let’s not waste much time taking Colorado. That was a lay-up. I wanna hear from Hookie about some crazy lines. Hook, can you bust up that gin game for a minute and lay some wisdom on us?

Hookie: Sure. You want line information? I got some line information. I hear the Boys of the Blitznot to be confused with the Ladies of the Viewwere shocked to see that OU opened as a four-point favorite over A & M. That shouldn’t surprise anyone. After that Missouri debacle, the nation is beyond being leery of the Sooners. They simply don’t think they can handle the heat on the road. They need proof that Landry Jones will hang in there under heat and make plays. For four quarters. Vegas knows A & M team that is nothing special. But the public is beyond weary with the Sooners. Do you realize that A & M’s best win was last week when they handled a weak Tech team in College Station? Besides the three non-conference patsies they beat early, their other win was against a Kansas team that I’d put as a nine point dog to Hutchinson Junior College. If OU is good, they can really take something from this game that will help them down the stretch: A solid performance would give them confidence in their final two road games. They’ll dunk Tech next week in Norman. Winning the right way in College Station could help get them to the Big 12 title date with Nebraska.

Bundy from Tulsa: Makes sense Hookie. But I don’t think we’ll get their until the offensive line run-blocks better. And I doubt they can this year. I like those kids, but they aren’t there yet. We can run it against the Iowa States. But not when we really need it.

Coach Richardson from Dallas: Good point Malcolm. But on the flip side, did you see what Roy Finch added? Nice touch from Kevin Wilson to get Roy and DeMarco on the field at the same time. It’s good that either can play in the slot and they both have good hands. Roy is already a better pure make-the-first-man-miss guy than Murray. DeMarco is valuable. But he struggles to get past that first guy, much less take it to the house. Hey Dur. Sit the sauce for a second and tell us what you think of Ryan Broyles.

Durwood from Nichols Hills: Coach, mind your own business. If I need a little jump-start to the week, I’ll do it. Morning tottie settles the nerves. Makes me more sure of myself. And I ‘m sure about one thing. Ryan Broyles is a stud. He’s already the best receiver in OU history.  That Blitz guy in the funny clothes says two things that got my attention. He said last night that he thinks Broyles is probably coming back next year for his senior season. And he got Broyles to give a percentage on how hurt he is. Ryan said he’s only 80 percent. There’s word out there that he’s told a friend that his ankle is actually “cracked.” Both ankles hurt. And even though he didn’t reinjure them, he definitely moved around more gingerly than normal. He was sensational, especially considering all that. OU will need him in these three road games. Stoops told old Blitzer that they had Ryan do what he could Tuesday and Wednesday, let him rest some on Thursday and had Friday off. Smart. Broyles told Blitz Boy yesterday that players MUST practice to keep timing with the QB. He actually WANTS to be out there. Unusual, these days.  See you guys later. Come crank it up with me later. We’ll do the Western Crawl. Start out at Happy Hour at Sip City. 

Blund from parts unknown: Gotta talk defense. OU was great Saturday. And the Buffs aren’t that shabby on offense. Okay, not great. But not awful. And they didnt even reach the red zone. They made only 12 first downs (at one time it was 20-4 in first downs) and were held to just 3.9 yards per play. The pass defense was really goodespecially those young corners. And OU had five tackles for loss.  That’s all I’ve got today boysand Lady of Lumber. Wife’s taking me to “Shop till You Drop” day. Which is every day for her.  Love her. But she’ll buy some shoes with you. Or without you.

Long John from Oklahoma Sports: I keep hearing the stat thrown out there by all you OU homers about Home Game BobI say that as a compliment. I used to like OUstill do, sort of. But let me warn you now. You are not winning in Stillwater. Best chance for you guys is for OSU to lose twice before you play them. That probably won’t happen. More likely to win them all than to lose twice. Anyhow, kudos to Bobby Stoops.

Big Game Bob: Certainly, we won a few games here at home. I believe 71-2 is what it is, but we don’t keep track. We do it for our constituents, President Boren, Athletics Director Joe Castiglione and donors everywhere. Mack is a fine coach. We’ve been there. We’re not gloating over what our student/athleteshey quit snickering over that at the bar Durwoodyes, our school-first academician/athletes have done here at the Gaylord Memorial Oklahoma Memorial Stadium (thanks be to you in the better-to-give-than receive Gaylord family). Maybe some big/strong/fast high school student athletes may recognize that Mack and the Boys lost three games to weak sisters UCLA, Iowa State and Baylor. I won’t point out to the prep young student athletes who are big/strong/fast and trying to decide whether to live north or south of the Red, that we had legitimate reasons for losing five games last year. They are aware that we had 15 starters including King Sam and Big Jermaine out to injury.  These young/big/strong/fast/future doctors and lawyers and men of the cloth know those losses were close and they weren’t to the Iowa State’s of the world. And these big/strong/fast/future CEOs know that the factual way to compare the two programs is to say that the fine institution in Austin has lost more games in four weeks than our future astronauts have in a dozen autumns. We’re not about talking about ourselfscheck that, ourselves (see, I was a student-first/athlete back in the day and I’m a grammarian at heart).  At the end of the day, certainly, we appreciate the student athletes at Texas and we know they’ll get their plow out of the ditch later or sooner. Gotta go.  Headed to the library to thank our offensive line for their commitment to excellence. Manuel, back to you.

Lanier from Oak Tree: I take offense to that, Home Game Bob. You know they’re making fun of you when they call you that. 71-2 is not that big a deal. UCLA and Iowa State are highly underrated. You are condescending.  I just don’t know what to say right now, except Bevo’s better than that pair of Shetlands you hillbillies run out there. Go ahead and hit us while we’re down. Remember this. The eyes of Texas are up on you. And, Hook em Horns.

Spartan from Elm Street: Let me summarize this team. It’s Tony Jefferson and it’s Corey Nelson. What I mean by that is two things. One, these are front-line guysTony at nickel (or Roy). And Corey at “Jack”or third and long pass situations. That’s the position at the line of scrimmage that allows an athletic player to put pressure on the QB (he moved to Sam from Will where he still backs up Travis Lewis). Ronnell Lewis played that position before he got hurt. And Ronnell fits in this theory as well. Back to the point. OU is young. But OU has some remarkable talent. Just like the rotation of one true frosh for another true frosh.  Jefferson in, Nelson outor vice, versa. Or Ronnell in and Nelson out. They are going to make big plays. And they’ll make big mistakes. Probably too many to win out through the bowl game. But the ability is there. And the future is extremely promising. Stoops said as much to Blitz Boy yesterday at the taping of his show. Said the coach has a gleam in his eye when talking about these kids and the upcoming seasons, which is good news for Stoops fans.

Manuel the Moderator: All great points. But Spartan, the MMQB Club is not here for “next year.” We are about the “here and now.” We’ll be about the future after Glendale. Or wherever the RV heads come early January.  Thanks one and all. Don’t forget the Western Crawl. Hosted by the one and onlyDurwood. All begins at Sip City. Adios. And go vote!
