The high profile game in South Bend this Fall against Notre Dame will be a big indicator on the national prospects for the Sooners. If they can sneak into South Bend and get a win against the Irish, it will likely propel the Sooners into the top 10 in the polls. If they fall, it will likely keep them out of national title contention. So, the suspension of Irish quarterback Everett Golson over the weekend was definitely interesting for the Sooner faithful. Many were asking does this give us an advantage now? Will the experienced backup Rees be able to step in and keep the Irish moving? Or will this be part of the continuing saga that Notre Dame has been facing since the Teo episode and the blowout loss in the title game? Rees has been very average at best during his starts and is not likely to be a star at quarterback this Fall. Not too mention he is not much of a running threat, which Golson tore up the Sooners defense doing?
It is probably to early to tell, but it is often a sign of things to come, when suspensions and things like this start to happen. It just seems to cycle versus being an isolated occurrence.
