Final: Oklahoma 42, Baylor 34

New, 3 comments

Baylor is now 4-5 on the season with three more chances to get two wins and return to bowl eligibility. The worst game of Nick Florence's 2012 season doomed the Bears, whose defense couldn't stop OU enough to make up the difference.

Brett Deering

Some will disagree with me placing a significant portion of the blame on Nick Florence, but I honestly believe it. He was 12/33 with several overthrown deep passes that could have been the difference. His receivers didn't help him -- *cough* TEVIN REESE *cough*-- but he was far from good.

Lache Seastrunk, however, was able to build on the Kansas game with 3 TDs and 91 yards on 15 carries. The Jarred Salubi Era is over. The Lache Seastrunk Era has begun!

It probably seems weird that I'm lamenting the fact that a 21.5 point underdog lost by 8. You know I fully expected to lose this game, but the way we lost it still bothers me. We looked overmatched on offense for the first real time this season, the defense failed to replicate it's success last week against Kansas when it needed to, and we lost our first game this season where we won the turnover margin. If you had told me going in that we would get two more turnovers than we gave up, I'd have been pretty freaking excited. Because of our offense, though, we didn't get it done. Losing will never stop hurting. Losing like this will never stop pissing me off.
