Oklahoma State Review: Defense, media, refs, QB, and more

First let me start off by saying the defense is FAR better than last year. You cant even compare the two. The Defense held Oklahoma State under 30 points for the first time since 2010. That's right 3 years. The defense was stopping plays by tackling and forcing 3 and outs. Unfortunately in the 2nd half they were kept on the field too long which was the offense's fault. The defense as a whole played well even with injured players(That's right we have depth). The score may not show it but this may be one of the best games I have seen the defense play under Mullen and yes this defense is better than the 2010 defense I don't have to think about it. 2nd lets talk about the refs. Any neutral fan could see that the refs were awful and giving calls to Oklahoma State. For instance Oklahoma State pushed the State players 3 times while the State players out of bounds ,but when state pushed an Oklahoma Sate player out of bounds that wasn't even as hard as Oklahoma State was doing to State, They called it. I am not implying that we shouldn't have been penalized, I am just saying that they should have called Oklahoma State on more penalties. And did you see that pass that was out of bounds and they called it a td for Oklahoma State and then they confirmed that it was a td before having another discussion by saying it was a "miscommunication" before calling it incomplete. Enough Said. The next thing I am talking about will cause some controversy which this more of my opinion. I think that Dak is a better qb than Tyler and should be the starting qb. Here is why: He made better decisions than Tyler as far as not throwing it to a man covered with 3 guys and getting it intercepted even though there was a man open down field that could've led to a td. If Dak is used correctly he is better. Not only is he a better runner but better decisions at passing. Even if Dak doesn't start after this. MSU has a bright future in the qb department I will confirm to you that. The only the that Tyler has better is a longer throw. But I think accuracy and running is more important than that. About the media. They are going to talk about how bad Oklahoma State's offense is and how they should have dominated more unless you turn to an SEC biased station. I for one am confident that our defense was better hat we just wore out. Had our defense not been on the field so much we would have held them to less points. But back to the media, I cannot stand on how much they talk about the 7-6 team that has 3 great new freshman. Against Vandy they looked awful on defense that is the fact. They are overrated and will not beat Texas, LSU, or Alabama. I leave A&M open because they look to fall apart in 2 weeks. I think TSUN will have close games against Auburn, Arkansas, A&M, and Troy. The egg bowl will be a great game if you hear what I am implying. I am mad about the stupid schedulers at the SEC moving he Egg Bowl in 2014 to Saturday and giving TSUN a easy schedule in 2013 but that's another talk for another day. The point is don't be fooled by the media. State is a better team than TSUN and TSUN would have allowed 40+ points to Oklahoma State judging by their performance against a questionable offense on Thursday. Now about the offense. I liked the strategy by running the clock down. The problem was they ran more than they passed and that hurt them. They can beat up tempo teams by this. However against teams like Alabama and LSU I would rather them put Dak in and run a hurry up offense. They would be amazing with this strategy I think. But I'm not Dan Mullen now am I. Brief preview about next week. Normally I would do this on a separate post but this one is brief. Braves vs Bulldogs coverage This should be an easy game tuning up for Auburn and recovering from injuries. If we have problems in this game something is wrong. To close I would like to say thank you for reading this. I read the comments on the last post and enjoyed them. If you would take a moment to comment on your thoughts that would make me happy. Thanks -wtw2400
