Barry Switzer has the power to predict the future – or at least he thinks he does.

Switzer, a Hall of Fame coach, who is best known for his time at Oklahoma, posted a tweet congratulating current Oklahoma coach on his win against Iowa State.

Only one problem with that, the game has yet to be played.

The Sooners and Cyclones meet at noon ET on Saturday, but that doesn’t matter to Switzer, who wanted to get a head start on congratulating Stoops on tying his record for wins as an Oklahoma coach. Switzer’s career record with the Sooners was 157-29-4 and Stoops has 156 wins heading into the Iowa State game.

Of course, Iowa State has struggled this season. The Cyclones are 1-8 after a pair of 6-7 seasons.

So, Switzer’s prediction isn’t exactly bold. Or perhaps he’s just trolling and trying to provide bulletin board material for the Cyclones? You know, so he can hold on to his record just a little longer.
