Kansas State will try to continue its improbable two-game winning streak in Norman Saturday morning, so The Oklahoman’s Ryan Aber graciously joined Bracket Cat and I to discuss the matchup in this week’s podcast. He gave us an honest assessment of all the concerns with this year’s OU team and why it almost certainly already missed its chance to live up to expectations, from an injury-depleted defense and offensive line to a lack of firepower needed to make up for all the great players lost season.

Make no mistake, though, these Sooners are still very good, and Ryan believes they could keep getting better with playmakers like tailback Samaje Perine and Dede Westbrook returning to full health. Looking even further into the future, Ryan thinks OU could be poised for a resurgence thanks to some strong recruiting classes, and we even talked a little about expansion.

So have a listen, and don’t forget you can check out Ryan’s work at The Oklahoman’s website and follow him on Twitter at @ryaber.
