Oklahoma Sooners’ 2014 football season explained by Michael Scott GIF’s


One more game remains on OU’s schedule this season. It’s been a weird season of ups and downs, a Sooners team that peaked in late September, and face-planted in to Orlando’s Russell Athletic Bowl.

Bob Stoops’ marquee victory over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl doesn’t seem real anymore, and things aren’t looking so bright in Norman these days.

But let’s recap this incredibly disappointing season with the help from a character on one of my favorite off-season time killers, The Office.

Before the season even began, OU announced new alternate uniforms, a generous Bob Stoops pay raise, and a renovated Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. A good summer for Bob and Mr. Joe Castiglione.

However, a different Joe got in to bit of trouble with the law in late July, which raised concern with OU fans, but optimism was still there.

It seemed like everyone was jumping on the bandwagon when the Sooners opened as the fourth-ranked team in the AP Top 25, and third in the Coaches.

And the hype sustained through September when OU rolled through Louisiana Tech, Tulsa, and Tennessee.

Then a freshman by the name of Samaje Perine ran for 242 yards and scored four touchdowns in a huge road win in Morgantown and it felt like this might just be OU’s year.

Then the TCU game happened…

OU managed to beat Texas the next week and regain some momentum, but another heartbreaking loss came crashing down on the Sooners

OU bounced back against Iowa State, but the Baylor Bears would do mean, mean things to the Sooners in Norman on Nov. 8.

To add insult to injury, Trevor Knight left the Baylor game on a stretcher and Sterling Shepard sustained a groin injury after landing on some expensive camera equipment.

OU would win their next two games, and that freshman guy Samaje Perine, was it? Yeah, he broke an FBS record against the Kansas Jayhawks a week after Melvin Gordon broke the same record.

Oklahoma’s final game of the regular season wasn’t expected to be too tough of a test, and the Sooners quickly jumped out to an early lead on the Oklahoma State Cowboys.

It looked like a Zack Sanchez interception would seal the deal in the fourth quarter, but Tyreek Hill returned a long punt return to send Bedlam in to overtime.

The Cowboys walked out of Norman with a win, and every OU fan was out for blood (main targets being Stoops, Heupel, Hunnicutt, or all the above).

So as OU awaited their inevitable bid to the Russell Athletic Bowl, Sooner fans were left out of the fun for the first ever College Football Playoff.

But while Oklahoma is playing in an mediocre bowl, we urge you to keep the faith and support these seniors in their last game wearing the crimson and cream. It’s what Michael Scott would’ve wanted.
