I posted on another board - they expect to "whoop our rear" every year, but only accomplish it 20% of the time. Even when favored. I watched their DB's mug the TTU WRs all night. I expect it to be worse in Stoolwater. That and the SEC factor will be difficult for this OU team to overcome. If this team thinks they can just show up and win like they apparently did in a number of games this year, the Pokes will beat them handily.

All I know for sure, it will be very interesting to see what changes (personnel in portals and coaches/staff) take place in the off season and how they will or won't impact early NSD in February.

Yesterday, our defense was not the problem and Spencer Sanders is not that great. If we lose, it will be because of the offense, not the great play by OSU receivers.

Oklahoma won 10 Bedlam games in the 1950s

Oklahoma State has won 10 Bedlam games since the 1950s

Oklahoma State has 18 Bedlam wins.

Oklahoma got their 18th Bedlam win the year Boone Pickens was born.

Bedlam began in 1904.

Oklahoma State did not score until 1914.

From 1967 to 1996, Miss Oklahoma won the Miss America competition more times than Oklahoma State won Bedlam

Mike Gundy Bedlam wins: 2

Barry Switzer Bedlam wins
...in Stillwater
...in odd-numbered years
...in the month of November
...when the day of the month is a prime number: 2

There have been more people walk on the surface of the moon than coach Oklahoma State Football to a Bedlam win.

Bud, Barry and Bob coached the Sooners for a total of 51 seasons. They had more National Championships (7) than losses to Oklahoma State (5).

Gliese 832 c is a planet just over 94 trillion miles away. It lies within it's star's habitable zone, and could potentially harbor life If it does, they would've just recently heard the radio broadcast of the last time OSU won a 2nd straight Bedlam game (2002)

When incoming freshmen got to Stillwater in 1965, Oklahoma State hadn't won a Bedlam game during their lifetime. Also When incoming freshmen got to Stillwater in 1995, Oklahoma State hadn't won a Bedlam game during their lifetime.

Oklahoma has scored 25 or more points in 57% of all Bedlam games

Oklahoma State has scored fewer than 10 points in 51% of all Bedlam games

Oklahoma oustcored Oklahoma State 463 to 146 in the 1970s

Oklahoma is 3rd all-time with 101 weeks ranked AP No.1

Oklahoma State has never been ranked AP No. 1

Teams to beat Oklahoma before OSU:

Oklahoma City (Town Team)
Ark City (Town Team)
Texas*
Dallas Athletic Club
Arkansas
Missouri
Kansas
Bethany
Washburn
Texas* A&M
Nebraska
Colorado
Tulsa
Kansas State
Illinois

Oklahoma outscored Oklahoma State 375 to 47 in the 1950s.

There have been 37 unique coaching matchups in Bedlam.

An OSU coach has the edge in just 5 of them...

John Blake vs Bob Simmons
Howard Schnellenberger vs Bob Simmons
Jim MacKenzie vs Phil Cutchin
Lewie Hardage vs Pappy Waldorf
Adrian Lindsey vs Pappy Waldorf

Oklahoma scored more points in Stillwater than Oklahoma State during the 1956 season.

If an OSU fan started walking from Stillwater after Bedlam 1945 at a leisurely 2 mph, he could have walked to the equator, then around the Earth 10 times, then back to Stillwater...

...and he would've still had 5 years to wait before OSU's next Bedlam win.

Oklahoma State has held Oklahoma to 0 points 10 times...

However, they only managed to win 7 of those games.

Oklahoma State Bedlam Wins - 18

Babe Ruth Home Runs against the Red Sox during games played on Sundays - 19

Oklahoma scored 75 points in the first game.

Oklahoma State didn't score their 75th point until the 24th meeting.

Oklahoma has scored 54 or more points in a Bedlam game 12 times.

Oklahoma State has 15 head coaches that didn't score 54 points against Oklahoma in their entire career.

Lincoln Riley has more Bedlam wins than Mike Gundy.

Gundy has coached Oklahoma State in 16 Bedlam games.

In 1945, Oklahoma State beat Oklahoma in football 47-0 Over the next 19 seasons, Oklahoma scored a total of 659 points against OSU.

It took OSU until 2001 (56 years) to score 659 points against Oklahoma.

If Oklahoma had spotted Oklahoma State 14 points in every Bedlam game, Oklahoma would still lead 61-52-2.

If you were to give Oklahoma State double points for every time they scored in a Bedlam game, Oklahoma would still lead the series 68-44-3.

It took NASA 8 years to plan the program, develop the technology, train the personnel, build and test the spacecraft and then, successfully land a man on the Moon.

It took Oklahoma State 10 years to score their first points in a Bedlam game.

Bedlam points scored:
OU, in Norman - 1,624
OU, in Stillwater - 1,505
OU, in even years - 1,770
OU, in odd years - 1,589
OU, Bud, Barry & Bob - 1,785
OU, Non-BB&B - 1,574
OU, Ranked Top 15 - 1,884
OU, Not in Top 15 - 1,475

OSU, entire series - 1,433

Mike Gundy's rank among all OSU coaches:
1st - Overall wins
1st - Overall winning %
1st - Ranked season finishes
1st - 10-win seasons
1st - Bedlam Pts/G
1st - Bedlam games as a ranked team
1st - Bedlam games ranked higher than OU

10th - Bedlam winning %

Oklahoma has 90 Bedlam wins. If Oklahoma State keeps their pace (18 of 115), they'll hit 90 wins in the year 2480.

Oklahoma State currently has an all-time winning % of .524 If Oklahoma lost their next 500 games in a row, they would have an all-time winning % of .527

..."More people have walked on the surface of the Moon than coach OwussU football to a Bedlam win." :lol: :lol: :lol:

OKLAHOMA is cutting the cord with OwussU.

OU is handing the Pukes a golden opportunity. A chance to assert themselves as a player on the national stage by assuming the BIG 12 throne room abandoned by OKLAHOMA and Texass.

All it requires is out recruiting Baylor, TCU, and Tech(good luck there). BYU & Cinci will need a few years to fit in. By all rights OwussU could, maybe should, be the power in the new Big 12.

It's interesting that this could be the very last Bedlam game in Stoolwater. Hell, even if they should win, it's small consolation given the series record.

Might be the very worst record of ALL for in-State rivalries.

I for one, won't miss the Aggies!

They remind me too much of Texass!

And, if this IS the last Bedlam game in Stoolwater, I like the SOONERS chances!

They had to create an imaginary title too.

Once we leave no more paddle Rudolph/people. No more band members tripping our players. No more buy 4 game tix to see 1.

Gumby is no longer a 40 year old man, he can take over the conference. They can make their own path and college goes to 12 team playoffs they will have greater odds of getting in. For osu, us leaving is going to help them become more relevant annually which is good for the state overall.

OU will form new real rivalries and come to hate some of their new members hijinx too but the money and game atmosphere will be better.

OU leaving is a win/win for both teams.

This story is always worth repeating.

https://oklahoman.com/article/5372932/b ... re-bedlams

In 1904 football, the forward pass was just a blip in Pop Warner’s imagination. The game looked more like rugby than anything else. And the boundary was more suggestion than a rule.

On Nov. 5, OU and Oklahoma A&M staged their first football game, and while it would be many years before Bedlam began describing the rivalry, that word never was more appropriate than in the first meeting at Island Park in Guthrie. Oklahoma was not even yet a state, and Guthrie was the territorial capital. A local commercial club enticed the university teams to meet, and so they did on a bitter cold day. The park was lined by Cottonwood Creek, which a century later still is prone to flooding, and its banks were overrun on this day. The creek looked shallow but in fact was seven feet deep.

On the game’s fourth play, the Aggies were backed up on their goal line, and punter B.O. Callahan kicked the ball straight up into the stiff north wind. The ball floated back past Callahan’s head. The rules of the day were clear. The ball was free for the taking, no matter where it landed. Touchdown for the Sooners, touchback for the Aggies. With players from both teams in hot pursuit, the ball landed and bounded down a foot trail and into the murky waters of Cottonwood Creek, where, according to OU historian Harold Keith, “it bobbed and floated like a cork as the swift current swept it downstream.”

A&M’s R.C. Baird tried to use a stick to fish out the ball. But OU’s T. Becker Matthews knocked Baird into the water. Matthews deduced that that put Baird closer to the ball, so in went Matthews, too. They battled for the slippery ball, and finally Matthews dunked Baird into the water, sending Baird scrambling for the banks. Meanwhile, an A&M played named Burleson and OU’s Ed Cook and Frank Long jumped in, too, and Cook won the race. He grabbed the ball, lugged himself out of the water and touched the ball down for what has to be the oddest touchdown in Bedlam history.

The Aqua Men of both sides played the rest of the half in their freezing uniforms, but at halftime, the OU trio compelled their reserves to offer up their dry uniforms. The game continued, and OU won 75-0. But those are long-forgotten details. What never will be forgotten is that the first Bedlam touchdown was scored not in an end zone, but on the shores of Cottonwood Creek.
All that is gold does not glitter.
Not all those who wander are lost.
The old that is strong does not wither.
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

Where the pokes defense has been hurt is running plays on the perimeter and short crossing routes over the middle. Let's see if Riley takes advantage of those tendencies.
