    Sooners fall in Cheez-It Bowl but optimism remains

    Sooners fall in Cheez-It Bowl but optimism remains

    Carey and Eddie finally sit down back in Norman to record the Eskridge Lexus Postgame pod/season wrap-up episode. The Sooners finished the season with a 6-7 record and it's still a losing record. Not something that will ever be acceptable at Oklahoma. But major questions marks were getting ready to greet us heading into the offseason. And with the way the offensive line played, the way Gavin Sawchuck performed and there are fewer issues than we might have thought. The Sooners could have been blown out in Orlando with the opt-outs and injuries. But they battled, and almost pulled out a victory. Ultimately, the Sooners will have to improve for Brent Venables to build the legacy he hopes to build in Norman.

    It's over. OU loses and finishes 6-6 in the regular season.

    Everyone is back from Lubbock and we're ready to talk about it. The Sooners lose the regular season finale in OT to Texas Tech. Carey and Eddie start things out and Josh joins us as he returns home from his trip to Oklahoma. What went wrong and how it gets fixed. What does Brent Venables need to do to fix the problems with game management. How does he need to fix things with Jeff Lebby and the offense that just can't go fast enough for him, even when it hurts the Sooners' chances of winning? What changes do we see coming? What players are in and who is out? And how is the culture of this team after 12 games and a lot of disappointment? Josh joins in about 40 minutes in to give his thoughts on what he saw this weekend and throughout the season.

    A Bedlam victory and a great defensive effort

    A Bedlam victory and a great defensive effort

    The Oklahoma Sooners move to 6-5 and make themselves bowl eligible with a win over Oklahoma State Saturday night on Owen Field. It was also senior night and Drake Stoops was one of the brightest offensive stars of the night. But the offensive stars took a backseat the defense which intercepted four passes from Spencer Sanders and kept getting big stop after big stop even when the offense wasn't helping. And the offense wasn't just not helping, they were actually hurting the defense but going three-and-out and not taking enough time off the clock. For all the blame we've lobbed on players for not seeming to care about their performances this season, it was the coaching staff that stood out the most in Bedlam as they failed to control the clock on offense and kept opening the door for Oklahoma State to make a comeback. Carey and Eddie discuss it all in this Bedlam victory edition of the Eskridge Lexus Postgame Podcast.

    WVU loss: What is the give a crap level of OU players?

    WVU loss: What is the give a crap level of OU players?

    Eddie is headed back to Pittsburgh after another terrible loss by the Oklahoma Sooners. Carey is back at the office ready to tear this program down to the studs. Losing 23-20, the Sooners have us shaking our heads once again and now we're questioning even more. The coaches don't escape the criticism this time around. But Carey and Eddie noticed some things in the post game interviews tonight. Eddie also noticed something in the defeated players coming off the field. We're diving into why this team isn't getting better and what it could be about the makeup of this locker room that could lead to such dismal results on the field after 10 games. This team is 5-5. 5-5!!!!!! How can they sleep at night? The only way that's easy is if you just don't care.

    Sooners fall to Baylor and we have strong opinions

    Sooners fall to Baylor and we have strong opinions

    There were a lot of emotions running throughout the Baylor game. And when it was over, there were lots of emotions about the loss. Here's the thing, Carey, Josh and Eddie got together after to record the Eskridge Lexus Postgame pod. And we had serious thoughts about what the loss should mean for fans. We're no longer talking about conventional changes on the roster or the on the staff. We want OU fans to grab some perspective. The look at the rest of the season a certain way, and judge everything based on that. There is no Big 12 title game, no playoff and not even a bowl game at this point. The Sooners went toe-to-toe with another middling Big 12 team and this time it wasn't a total debacle. But there were still way too many mistakes to stomach. This team doesn't have the right stuff. How Venables and the staff and the players finish out the season will say more about the future of this program than the 9 games we've seen so far.

    Sooners handle Iowa State 27-13, defense looks sound again

    Sooners handle Iowa State 27-13, defense looks sound again

    The Sooners traveled to Ames, Iowa, to face an Iowa State team that had lost four straight. But those were all close losses and the Sooners have a recent history of struggles against the Iowa State defense. It was also a case of wondering if the defense was going to show improvements after a bye week and some time to get fresh legs. It all worked out as the Sooners got a win 27-13. Jeff Lebby seemed to have Matt Campbell's offense figured out at times, but dropped passes and untimely penalties derailed some solid early drives. Thanks to kicker Zach Schmit, the Sooners took a 13-0 lead before Dillon Gabriel and the offense added more conventional TDs in the second half. The defense took a noticeable step forward as well although it wasn't perfect. Iowa State ended up throwing the ball 57 times on the day as the Sooners were stout against the run. But with three interceptions and the emergence of DaShaun White as the cheetah position, OU looked dominating at times. Iowa State did squeak back into the game, but Michael Turk finally made his presence known by pinning the Cyclones deep in their own territory late in the game. Overall a solid win and Carey and Eddie broke it down on this week's episode of the Eskridge Lexus postgame podcast.

Could be better

Don’t pod at 2:30AM. You’re not that interesting at that time and don’t do as good of a job. Wait till Sunday. Include Josh and/or Bob. Still, appreciate the effort.
