Finishes 16th at Griak after being ranked 18th Nationally. Even Burcham can't save them.
Not a surprise since their splits were fake...

Remember that Workout Wednesday they did last week. That was funny.
While these about points could be valid reasons for Oklahoma running poorly, or worse than expected, I feel that well prepared teams who are running well at the moment (late September) should not be viewed as "burning way too hot" with seven weeks to go.

The coach has been there for a few months only, he has earned the job and is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to training.
Did they even run there full team?
I'd be willing to bet they trained through the meet and are waiting to peak at the end of the season.
A lot of teams are burning way too hot right now with 7 weeks to go...
You a fool sir, Thunder road is just the location where they run. 0% of that run was actually on Thunder road, but on the surrounding roads which are up to 13miles long... each

I actually believe those where false splits, or they were RACING that tempo. It's the coach's job to prevent that.
First thing, thunder road is less than 3 miles long when I pull it up on google maps. It's not like magnolia road, as it's literally a measly 3 miles long.
Second, OU's coach was previously at Samford and they where dreadful. This is by no means a justified hiring. I wager the director knows him personally, but I'm too lazy to research it.
Conclusion: They got what the deserved.
