Random Football Friday: 2002 OU vs Texas

Since no one reads this feature but my buddy Kyle I figured I would invite him to join me and break down the 2002 OU/Texas game. This was the sequel to the Roy Williams play the year before and would be Chris Simms last shot at beating the Sooners as a starter.

redriver

Half Texas, Half OU, Lots of Attractive Women

Of course as as Kyle and I watched this game deteriorate due to Nate Hybl interceptions we decided we needed to follow up and watch a Red River game with Barry Switzer coaching. This lead us to 1987 game in which Texas got destroyed because of course they did.

Which begs the question how does Texas lead this series if they never win? It is probably some Big XII conspiracy.  Anyway enjoy the nonsense…

Who and When: #3 Texas vs #2 Oklahoma Saturday October 12th 330pm

Announcers: Brent Musburger and Gary Danielson

The Situation: Each team came in ranked in the top 3 and were both National Title contenders. OU had beaten Texas the previous two seasons and Simms needed this game in order to get a victory over them as a starter. OU had lost starter Jason White earlier in the year and was now relying on Nate Hybl, a senior who was not well thought of. They just needed him to be reliable as the offense ran behind mighty mouse Quentin Griffin and played good defense.

The Players

Texas: QB Chris Simms, RB Cedric Benson, WR Roy Williams, LB Derrick Johnson, DB Nathan Vasher

OU: QB Nate Hybl, RB Quentin Griffin, TE Trent Smith, DLs Tommie Harris and Jimmy Wilkerson, LB Teddy Lehman, DBs Andre Woolfolk and Derrick Straight

Where was I: At homecoming, freaking High School man

The Game

:15 Michael Roarty: we open with a PUNT!

Kyle Jones

QUENTIEN GRIFFIN

THE POOR MAN’s BARRY SANDERS

Michael Roarty

Horrible Hybl int #1

Kyle Jones

Little Dude

Little Dude

I always felt like Hybl was dealing with an identity crisis thanks to josh heupel

Michael Roarty

He was never going to live up to anyones expectations

Awesome Chris Simms Play fake

Kyle Jones

“What Hybl wants to be, is NOT JOSH HEUPEL”

NO ONE SCORES IN MACK BROWN’S BIg 12

Michael Roarty

That int by Woolfolk got him picked in the 1st round

Kyle Jones

2:35:  seriously? is completing a pass to your own team so hard?

Michael Roarty

yes it is

Kyle Jones

GARY DANIELSON!!!

HE’S THERE

Michael Roarty

Old school Danielson

pre SEC

Kyle Jones

This video opened with a punt, yet we’ve had countless unexplained turnovers

and then lots of explained turnovers

I ask you Mack Brown: “Is this what YOU want football to be???”

Michael Roarty

Another horrible Hybl Int

Kyle Jones

5:00 was Cedrick Benson EVER fast?

Came Back to Lose to Nate Hybl

Came Back to Lose to Nate Hybl

Michael Roarty

No

Kyle Jones

He looks like he never ran below a 5.8 40

Michael Roarty

Another horrible int by Hybl

How did Texas not win by 20?

Kyle Jones

6:04 Another punt!!

6:18 Brent, was that Simm’s 3rd completion?

Michael Roarty

3/12

Kyle Jones

Chris Simms would’ve totally been one of Schiano’s guys

Michael Roarty

Im surprised his name is Chris Schiano

4th horrible Hybl Int

Kyle Jones

7:10 Dear God, would Nate Hybl get a D1 scholarship today?

Michael Roarty

TEDDY LEHMAN AND HE CAN FLAT FLY

Kyle Jones

and immediately gets tackled

Michael Roarty

But he can fly says Brent

Kyle Jones

"Good Luck"

“Good Luck”

Nate Hybl makes Bernie Kosar shed a single tear with that hideous throwing motion

Michael Roarty

that Griffin fumble pick up is just a sign that this will be his 4th Q

it took the Oklahoma OC 3 quarters to realize he needed to take out of Hybls hands

Kyle Jones

8:56 Lesson Learned: When on Play-Action, Hybl looks like Peyton Manning. Got it

Michael Roarty

9:38 only Griffin can stop himself

Kyle Jones

and NFL Linebackers

Michael Roarty

Chris Simms came back for that

to lose to a guy who threw 4 ints

why wasnt Mack Brown fired then

(Remembers Vince Young)

Kyle Jones

He recruited NAte Hybl as a Safety

Michael Roarty

haha

he had that one right

actually he should have recruited him to be the ball boy

Kyle Jones

Wasn’t Jason White already in his 2nd Junior year at that point?

Michael Roarty

He tore his ACL early in the year

1st tme

Kyle Jones

BTW, Jason White went to college for so long that he HAS to have his doctorate, right?

Michael Roarty

He might be the President of OU

Kyle Jones

No, I’m pretty sure Big Bob holds that title as part of his latest contract extension

I think he basically owns the Oklahoma education system at this point

Why? Because he beats Texas…with Nate Hybl

Michael Roarty

If you are Bob Stoops who are you scared Texas hires?

besides Saban

Kyle Jones

Not Will Muschamp

Maybe Art Briles?

Kevin Sumlin?

Michael Roarty

I doubt Sumlin comes but Briles with a legit DC would be terrifying

Kyle Jones

so GERG isn’t going to stay? Is that what you’re saying?

Michael Roarty

No, he can stay, he just had to take care of Bevo

of course he would screw it up and Bevo would die

Kyle Jones

“We didn’t know what to do when Bevo got outside”

Michael Roarty

“We just kind of let him go”

(Immediately gets kidnapped by the guys at goodbullhunting.com)

(Would be an amazing week on the internet)

Kyle Jones

is there a way for us to watch BArry Switzer in one of these games?

I think this series needs more Coach Switzer

Michael Roarty

I dont see why not, the wishbone cant be nearly as bad as watching Nate Hybl

The Game: 1987 OU 44 Texas 9

Kyle Jones

hahahaha BRENT IS THERE

Michael Roarty

Jesus Christ

He will never die

Kyle Jones

is that Major Applewhite’s freshman year?

Stoops Needs to Wear This

Stoops Needs to Wear This

Michael Roarty

HIGH FIVE AFTER THE TD

High fives just aren’t as cool anymore like that

Kyle Jones

Texas has 175 in the box

Kyle Jones

How much does Eric Metcalf wish he played today?

instead of spending his life running into the back of guards

Michael Roarty

in the spread, wow

Kyle Jones

Did Nate Hybl transfer from Oklahoma in the 80s?

sory, transfer from texas

Michael Roarty

So many horrible ints

Kyle Jones

3:30

Lydell

At RB

and he isn’t awful?

Barry Switzer WAS a magician

3:55 this is the 900th INT of the game for texas

Michael Roarty

Mack Brown should be fired for this

80s neck rolls need to come back

astro turf can stay in the 80s tho

Kyle Jones

as can Texas’ offense from this game

woof

5:46

Brent seems about as surprised to see that pick as I was

wow

Michael Roarty

had to end on an int

Kyle Jones

ITS THE ONLY WAY

Michael Roarty

Do not play a drinking game
