Under first-year head coach Lincoln Riley, Oklahoma was expected to be good, but maybe not this good.
After stomping Ohio State on the road, 31-16, Sooner fans were quick to bring up an old video of Desmond Howard and Lee Corso talking down Oklahoma:
Howard called Oklahoma a team that could disappoint because it was a year too soon. Howard called him a “fantastic coach,” but Corso took things a step further calling them, “pretenders.”
To add insult to that, the entire GameDay crew picked Ohio State to upend Oklahoma.
Not sure anyone is going to be calling them pretenders now.
