I understood the situation and how RPO works...
I still thought the RPO play that lead to a pick-6 was a bone-headed call. I honestly would have gladly taken three QB sneaks and a field goal at that point...take the lead and don't give up a TD that the OU offense did not appear capable of producing at that point in the game. It was a killer in every respect.

For more context, the fact that the player who intercepted the ball was supposed to blitz indicates that Retzlaff's pre-snap read was actually correct. Throw the ball into the side where the player is blitzing, unfortunately the player decided to drop into coverage going against the defensive play call and our QB should not have thrown the ball, but hindsight is 20-20. If the play were a simple run up the gut (or 3 straight runs up the gut followed by a chip shot field goal), I think the outcome of the game would have been different, so it's odd to me that anyone wants to defend the call at this point.
