The “We want Caleb” chants began in a hurry following Spencer Rattler’s awful start during the Oklahoma-Texas game on Saturday afternoon.
Rattler went six of 11 for 49 yards and an awful interception in the first quarter of Saturday’s Red River Showdown. He added negative eight yards on four carries with a touchdown as well. That stats don’t quite tell the full story though.
Last week, fans started chanting “We want Caleb” during another disappointing performance by Rattler. The chant was, of course, referring to five-star quarterback Caleb Williams. Some think he’s far superior to the struggling Rattler.
Fans got a glimpse of the future early in the second quarter when, facing fourth and one, Lincoln Riley replaced Rattler with Williams. The five star proceeded to score on a 66-yard rushing touchdown in which he broke multiple tackles at the line of scrimmage.

Spencer Rattler may improve thru the season but so far he hasn’t shown me anything worthy of being the #1 overall pick

Spencer Rattler playing without a lot of confidence, and Lincoln Riley calling plays like someone without a lot of confidence in their QB. 🤔

One of the biggest arguments for pulling Spencer Rattler is his attitude.
After Caleb Williams scored on a 66-yard rushing touchdown, Rattler didn’t even go over to celebrate the score. He remained by himself on the sideline.

Will Riley pull the plug on the Spencer Rattler era? It’s certainly on life support, especially if the Sooners can’t mount a comeback.
