"I don't know. What do you want to do?"
Because it doesn't matter. Whatever the choice, it's going to be fun.
Sooners coach Bob Stoops knew. When he won the coin flip, he probably flipped signaling to take the ball.
He was happy to. Finally, finally it was his team's turn to roll up offensive numbers.
Early, the Sooners were having a blast on third downs. Third-and-15? Toss it to Kenny Stills for 16. On the first drive, OU converted three third downs and scored on the fourth.
Then, midway in the second quarter, when the host Mountaineers were feeling good about themselves, tied at 10, Oklahoma started taking advantage on any downs.
The big plays started popping like champagne corks on New Year's Eve. On first-and-10 from their own 24, the Sooners had receiver Jalen Saunders cross the field and sit. He caught the Landry Jones pass and zipped 76 yards. The drive: two plays, 76 yards, 18 seconds.
On second-and-22, Jones threw a screen pass to tailback Damien Williams. Plus 35 yards.
On and on it went. Williams, on a first-and-10, found an opening up the middle and, probably to his surprise, found no Mountaineers after the first wave. A 48-yard score.
After one half, WVU had allowed 369 yards of offense. At the end it was 662.
Give WVU's offense credit for this one. Geno Smith had 320 yards passing. Coach Dana Holgorsen made a nice move putting Austin in the backfield. Stedman Bailey had 205 yards receiving.
But this game will be remembered for that 5-foot-9 dynamo, Austin.
Lee? He has 1,605 receiving yards to Austin's 1,050. But Austin entered the game No. 1 in receptions per game, while Lee was second.
And now, while Lee has 111 rushing yards in 11 games, Austin has 461 in 10 games. On Saturday, the Mountaineer added 146 yards on kick returns.
Lee had 158 yards on nine catches and one touchdown for USC. He had one rush for minus-3 yards. The Bruins lost.
Unfortunately for Austin, so did the Mountaineers.
His game, however, will always be remembered in West Virginia's hills.
