After Lincoln Riley left Oklahoma for USC, Sooner fans swore up and down that they were better off for it. After all, Lincoln Riley couldn’t win a national title there. And, they thought his teams were soft and not good enough on defense.

So, they hired former Oklahoma assistant and Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables. And, according to Those in Norman, he was going to fix all of their problems. But, they lost last week to Venables’ alma mater, Kansas State and gave up a ton of yards and points in that game in the 41-34 loss. And things are going completely off the rails today for Oklahoma.

Oklahoma looks dreadful against TCU

Fast forward to this week. Let’s check in with that Sooner defense.

Seems bad!

And, it is bad. Oklahoma gave up over 440 yards of offense and 41 points in the first half against the TCU Horned Frogs! The Oklahoma offense isn’t exactly running on all cylinders. But 233 yards of offense and 17 points in a half is not bad. It’s Venables’ vaunted defense that is pathetic.

Sooner fans are melting down while the nation laughs at them

Venables was supposed to fix this!

Are Sooner fans having buyer’s remorse? Maybe it would be more appropriate to just say they’re missing Lincoln Riley.

Some are even resorting to conspiracy theories

I’m pretty sure he is not tanking the season.

Meanwhile, out in Los Angeles, Lincoln Riley is sitting pretty.

This sums it up.
