Though I Know We All Hate OU and Texas...
« on: September 05, 2017, 07:19:36 pm »

If you want to see a display of hurry up, triple option football and a lot of hard, solid contact (before all of the rules against that came into play) and maybe the best Triple Option QB of all time (Jack Mildren), the 1969 OU-Texas game is on ESPN Classics.

If you like football, you will probably like seeing two teams from a different era who truly hate each other, slug it out.

For all of those who just love football, I thought I would mention it.

"Godfather of the Wishbone" and one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. I miss hearing him on OKC radio arguing with loud mouth Trebor.

I agree, Jack was a heck of a nice guy and one of the most gutsy QB's running the Triple Option that I ever saw. The man took a beating. Eventually became the Lt. Govenor of Oklahoma.

Notice how these kids hustle to the LOS and get set and you never see blocking like this anymore. Of course I kinda like seeing people leading with the helmet to make blocks and tackles, but these guys were smaller and not as fast (though maybe quicker) for the most part than what you see today.

Lt Gov and hotshot banker.

I'm not watching but living in Ok most of my life I've seen those old games, and I agree that was solid football. 69 wasn't kind to Mildren, 70 was much better and then he set records in 71 only losing to Nebraska..... If my OU history is correct.

Mildred also chose OU over UA. Another near miss in our history.
