The sooners the better

(10/20/00 9:00am)

The beast has awoken. The sleeping monster that was Oklahoma football the last decade is back in full force. The Sooners, who were a dominant football program throughout the 1970s and '80s, sank to being mediocre and then downright horrible in the '90s. But this is a new decade, and Oklahoma is coming off back-to-back victories over top-10 teams (Texas and Kansas State) in which they put up over 100 points combined. Their victory over then second-ranked Kansas State catapulted them to number three and four in the AP and coaches polls, respectively. In the last two years the Sooners have gone from sub .500 to having a legitimate shot at a conference and possibly a national title. Following an off week, Oklahoma will play top ranked Nebraska in what is shaping up to be a classic. To what can this remarkable turnaround be attributed? For starters, one of the best young coaching staffs in the nation and a quarterback gunning for the Heisman Trophy.

I walk into a partially constructed pumpkin patch of green tissue paper and pipe cleaners. The pumpkins have yet to be made. The door reads "Mrs. M's Patch of Fourth Grade Pumpkins!" Mrs. M wears a red linen jumper over a black t-shirt, tights and comfortable shoes. She smiles at me and continues talking: "I've been practicing. You should hear me wail!" She tells me that she takes music lessons with the class.

Way too often, sports journalists find themselves being stamped with the most despicable label they have ever heard -- "Monday-morning quarterback." It pains a reporter so greatly because he feels as though all of the intellect, savvy and knowledge he possesses becomes irrelevant when his conclusion is simply that another decision would have put the home team in the win column.
