Oklahoma and Lincoln Riley Suck, According To Paul Finebaum
Oklahoma and Lincoln Riley suck, according to Paul Finebaum.
Heading into this weekend the Sooners were widely regarded by most to be one of the six or so best teams in the nation.
Although they were quite clearly the top group in the Big 12, many wondered how they would fare against some of the grittier defenses in the nation.
Sadly, we likely will not get an answer to that question after Oklahoma lost to Kansas State 48-41 and essentially took themselves out of playoff contention.
After the game Riley insisted that his squad’s season was not over and they believed the could still compete for a postseason slot – but a lot of folks weren’t buying it.
One of those folks was ESPN’s Finebaum.
“Oklahoma is done,” he said Monday on WJOX.
“Anyone who tries to argue that they’re not is just simply being foolish.
“There are plenty of teams around that are going to be in better shape than Oklahoma, including Oregon, another team that a lot of us gave last rights to.
“Oregon keeps surviving, but at least they’re moving in the right direction.”
As far as Finebaum is concerned, though, Oklahoma’s loss is the SEC’s gain.
“The SEC was the biggest winner on Saturday,” he insisted.
“That’s easy to understand. The odds of the SEC getting two teams in the playoffs went up dramatically.”
