Oh, no, what's next for the Oklahoma football team?
If you're anything like the fans of the Sooners, you're probably thinking things aren't exactly going very well.
You're probably right, too.
Oklahoma lost Thursday night to Baylor – certainly no shame in that – but it wasn't just the loss, it was an undoing.
Oklahoma couldn't do anything offensively, imploded before the end of the first half, and now has major questions heading into the last three games of the season after the 41-12 loss.
It's not just that the Sooners lost, it's the fact that for the second time this season, they were run over. First against Texas, then against the Bears, and the result is a continuation of a disturbing trend.
When Oklahoma loses, it loses magnificently.
“We're not used to getting beat like this,” center Gabe Ikard said to The Oklahoman after the loss Thursday. “We shouldn't get beat like this.”
But the thing is, that's exactly what has happened.
In addition to close losses to Kansas State last year, the Sooners were dominated at home by Notre Dame last year and destroyed by Texas A&M in the bowl game. The season before? An embarrassment at Oklahoma State after close losses to Texas Tech and at Baylor.
Now we get to see how Oklahoma will react to playing at Kansas State and at Oklahoma State in the next three weeks.
The Sooners slipped to No. 17 in the Associated Press poll, but no one around Oklahoma really is concerned about that. A promising start – including a win this season at Notre Dame – is forgotten. OU is out of the national championship picture and now is out of the Big 12 race, too.
There are concerns at quarterback. The defense is young and injured.
What's next? No one knows, but there isn't a lot of optimism right now.
