Oklahoma football: How Londell Taylor went from being on his last straw to 'a consummate team guy'

BY RYAN ABER, Staff WriterNORMAN — Londell Taylor doesn’t hold back on the sense of entitlement he felt just a few years ago. Taylor was a multi-sport star at Vian High before he made a choice, picking a baseball career over a football offer from Oklahoma in 2007. “I don’t want to sound cocky here but going to a school like I did and being the big man on campus, then getting drafted, you do all that stuff for so long you feel like you’re untouchable — like you can’t get in trouble or nothing,” Taylor said.Read more on NewsOK.com

Oklahoma football: Sooners still have several bowl possibilities

By Jason KerseyNORMAN — Oklahoma began the season with national championship aspirations, but after a second loss last weekend, players and coaches acknowledge the College Football Playoff is virtually off the table.

Oklahoma football notebook: Cody Thomas' brief appearance shows promise

BY RYAN ABER AND JASON KERSEYSooner backup quarterback Cody Thomas only had a couple of garbage-time series under his belt before starter Trevor Knight went down with an apparent shoulder injury Saturday. With the game scoreless, Thomas came in and led the Sooners right down the field for a touchdown in what became a 31-30 Oklahoma loss.
