Social Media Reactions to Oklahoma’s 35-23 win over Kansas

·4 min read

Gloria (Rosie Perez) from White Men Can’t Jump summed it up perfectly.

Sometimes when you win, you really lose, and sometimes when you lose, you really win, and sometimes when you win or lose, you actually tie, and sometimes when you tie, you actually win or lose. Winning or losing is all one organic mechanism, from which one extracts what one needs.

Yesterday’s 12 point win over the Kansas Jayhawks will count as a win on the stat sheet, but it actually felt like a loss. Not because of the final score, but because of the mechanism that led to the final score.

The Oklahoma Sooners slept through the first half. Kansas took the air out of the ball, dominating time of possession and limiting the Sooners to just three possessions.

Those three Sooners possessions went punt, interception, and turnover on downs.

Nothing worked.

Kansas had the Oklahoma Sooners befuddled on both sides of the football. Jayhawks’ quarterback had a career day completing 74% of his passes after coming into the game connecting on just 55% of his throws.

Thankfully, the Sooners found their game at halftime. And though it wasn’t always perfect and the game was in doubt until the final minutes, the Sooners stayed undefeated on the season.

And as we do after each game, let’s take a look at what social media had to say about the win.
