Is OU going to kick Notre Dame's tail?
Our “Inbox” segment on the Press Row always has some interesting conversation.
That’s because the questions come from you, the readers.
And a reader named Larry had a heck of a question this week. He said that based on what he’d seen of Notre Dame, Oklahoma should kick some tail in South Bend on Saturday.

“What do you think?” he asked.
I’ll let you check out Berry Tramel’s response on video, but here are my two cents. First, I agree with Larry that Notre Dame’s performances so far haven’t exactly set the world on fire. But here’s where I struggle with the kick-some-tail notion. We don’t really know how good OU is. The Sooners haven’t played anyone that’s any good — and if you try to say West Virginia is good, I’ll point to that debacle the Mountaineers had last week against Maryland. The OU offense seems to be going places with Blake Bell at quarterback, and the OU defense is absolutely ahead of where it was a year ago. But past that, we don’t yet know how good the Sooners are.
So, to think they’re going to go on the road to Notre Dame and win in a rout?
I’m not buying it.
