MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Now that Bob “Big-Talk a Good Game” Stoops has steered OU back to the top of the power rankings, he’s smarting off about SEC defenses being soft. This riled up the football zealots down South, but they should realize that after 15 years as a head coach, Stoops has finally learned to snark like his old boss Steve Spurrier.

1. Oklahoma (4-0, 1-0)
Result:The Sooners defeated Notre Dame 35-21 as Blake Bell reminded Stoops once again how he chose the wrong starting quarterback during fall camp.
2. Baylor (3-0, 0-0)
Result: Idle. During their second off weekend of the young season, the Bears compared film of WVU-Maryland with live-action of WVU-Oklahoma State and immediately began suffering from associative schizophrenia.
3. Oklahoma State (3-1, 0-1)
Result: A 30-21 loss at West Virginia produced the Cowboys’ second-lowest scoring output in the last 26 league games.
4. Texas Tech (4-0, 1-0)
Result: Idle. When Kliff Kingsbury promises to reveal some new wrinkles this week, female fans pray “NOT ON THE FACE, COACH! NOT ON THE FACE!!!”
5. West Virginia (3-2, 1-1)
Result: Knocking off Oklahoma State 30-21 sent a few Morgantown miscreants into a dumpster-burning, car-tipping frenzy. Might have to bring in the National Guard once WVU wins the Heart of Dallas Bowl.
6. TCU (2-2, 0-1)
Result: Gary Patterson apparently whacked his team in the behind with a halftime skillet during a 48-17 win over SMU.
7. Texas (2-2, 0-1)
Result: Idle. After his work in “We are Marshall,” Matthew McConaughey has to be a candidate for AD, right?
8. Kansas State (2-2, 0-1)
Result: Idle. The Wildcats are No. 2 in the Big 12 in passing efficiency, clear statistical proof that old Collin Klein was an albatross.
9. Kansas (2-1, 0-0)
Result: Idle. “The Streak” is at 21 games and 1,063 days. (If you don’t recognize these numbers as the span since KU’s last Big 12 football victory, then you’re not among the 57 people who follow KU football.)
10. Iowa State (1-2, 0-0)
Result: Idle. Thanks to beating Tulsa, the Cyclones are now 1-0 this season against other teams with a violent weather pattern for a mascot.

    In the beginning WVU was predicted to finish near the bottom of big12, now we got a big win over oks! People still don't give us a chance at Baylor. Sure 70 points in 3 games in a row is impressive, but had WVU played the same teams we would have done the same possibly more like 77 points per game. Baylor's heads are swelling up just at the thought of playing a team with a defense! Let me correct myself, theirs heads are swelling at the thought of having to play a TEAM period. WVU will stun everyone again this week WVU 28 Baylor 14!

    Last week fans thougth we were garbage and now today we are complaining about Allen;'s 5th place ranking, please, if we are good enough our spot will bear out. Show up Saturday, beat Baylor and we will earn our spot.

      Complaining!!!! No statingfactss....always a critic Hailey?

  • Dougie


    Wvu at 4th and Okla St at 5th would have made more sense wouldn't it?

    • DH

      I think the top five should be:

      1. Oklahoma 4-0, (1-0)
      2. Texas Tech 4-0, (1-0)
      3. Baylor 3-0 (0-0)
      4. WVU 3-2, (1-1)
      5. Ok State 3-1, (1-1)

    Allan might be able to help Bob-off-the-Stoops upgrade his Snark...!

  • SamWV304

    Yea not understding the way this ranking is working if we played two big12. games,lost one to the number one on the rankings and beat the number three. Howare we ranked at what fifth?..I guess its all in all record. But a power ranking would be different right?just a thought.
