Wanted: Head Coach


Independence Bowl Shreveport, La Dec 28 4:30PM


Alabama (6-6) vs Oklahoma State (6-6)
Line: Okl St -2, 50

4:30 PM ETW/LATSHAAFAAO/U
Oklahoma State 6-6-06-5-04-22-435.325.27-4-0
Alabama 6-6-06-6-06-20-422.2187-5-0
Storyline:
After being turned down by Rich Rodriguez and Nick Saban (twice), the Crimson Tide is still looking for a head coach. The Alabama team is reeling from its fifth straight loss to Auburn and the head coaching carousel these Seniors have seen in the tenure in Tuscaloosa. Oklahoma State comes into this game after losing a heartbreaker to rival Oklahama, but has a chance to put a notch on their belt with a win over a traditional powerhouse like Alabama.

Season Recap Oklahoma State:
Big Wins: vNeb 41-29,
Bad Losses: @Tex 10-36, @Kan St 27-31
Record vs Bowl Teams: 1-5

Season Recap Alabama:
Big Wins: None
Bad Losses: vMiss St 16-24
Record vs Bowl Teams: 1-5

Prediction:
I think Alabama's focus on the season went out of the window with the Auburn loss and the firing of Mike Shula. Furthermore, Alabama players have been spotted in Shreveport Casino's this week (Casinos were off limits to Okla St players). The Cowboys have played a lot of good teams close and Alabama is not even that good.

Oklahoma State Wins, Covers (4 star), Under (3.5 star)
