Oklahoma Sooners Find Scoring Options In 90-68 Win Over NSU Demons

The Oklahoma Sooners found a few scoring options outside of Buddy Hield in Sunday's 90-68 win over the Northwestern St. Demons. Throughout the first nine minutes of play the star guard remained scoreless until finally finding himself at the free throw line. As the final buzzer rang, Hield quietly poured in 16 points. The open window of opportunity let a few others players pick up the slack. By the time the Sooners returned to the locker room, Isaiah Cousins racked up 15 points and continues to stuff the stat sheet. He would finish the game with a team high 20 points along with seven...

Oklahoma Sooners Defense Allows 103 Total Yards In 44-7 Blowout Win Over Kansas Jayhawks

With the rain pouring down, the Oklahoma Sooners appeared to be focused and well prepared for what the Kansas Jayhawks were going to throw at them. After the delay, the defense quickly got to work on the field making the Jayhawk offense uncomfortable. Rightfully so, all media outlets have focused on the performance Samaje Perine laid down on Saturday. That leads me to the most overlooked stat of the day. That stat manifests itself in knowing the Sooners held their opponent to a mere 103 total yards of offense. The last time a defense in Norman could boast such a feat the year was 2009. Each...

Oklahoma Sooners MBB | Quick Opponent Preview: Northwestern St. Demons

The Oklahoma Sooners return home after suffering their first loss of the season on the road. Looking to refocus, defense remains the key to the season. Through two games, Lon Kruger and his squad are holding opponents 35% shooting while giving up a mere 59 points per game. On Sunday afternoon, OU hopes to continue their progression as they host Northwestern State. Three Quick Things To Know Northwestern State possesses three players averaging double-digits in scoring. Leading the way, Zeek Woodley averages 19 points and shoots 56.4% from the field on a squad picked to finished second in...

Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting / OL Recruits React to Samaje's Big Day

The Sooners could take as many as 8 recruits in the class of 2015. Currently the Sooners have 5 commits and have narrowed their focus to 2 instate targets and 1 junior college player to fill out the rest of the class. Here are how some o the commits and targets reacted to Samaje's big day. 1. 2015 Commit Dru Samia 427 Rushing Yards!!!!!! — Dru Samia (@DruSamia) November 22, 2014 _________________________________________________________________ 2. 2015 JUCO Commit Jamal Danley @JDanley54 · 3h 3 hours ago Glad I'm gonna block for a dog RB @samajp32 ! 18 carries 222 yards...

Oklahoma Sooners Football | Samaje Perine Sets All-Time NCAA Rushing Record

The only thing that was falling faster than the rain in Norman on Saturday afternoon were records...and lots of them. Oklahoma freshman running back Samaje Perine broke Adrian Peterson's freshman touchdown in the second quarter but he was only getting started. By the end of the day he would also tie Peterson's freshman mark for 200 yard running games and surpass Iowa State's Troy Davis for the Big 12 Conference single-game rushing mark. Oh yeah, he'd also set the single game NCAA rushing record while he was at it. Perine finished the day with 427 yards on 34 carries (12.6 YPC) and scored 5...

Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting / Is It Time to Panic at Linebacker?

Next season assuming that Frank Shannon returns, the Sooners will have 9 scholarship linebackers. With 4 linebackers on the field for the Sooners in their base defense, you can see real quick that depth will be an issue for next year. Ideally the Sooners would take at least 3, if not 4 linebackers in the class. The Sooners have offers out to numerous uncommitted prospects but the outlook for landing some of these prospects looks bleak. To make things worse they have ZERO commitments for the class of 2015. After the Tennessee game, most assumed the Sooners would have their pick from elite...

Friday Locks | We Give You Baylor/O-State & Mississippi/Arkansas

Can the Hogs pull off back-to-back upsets? At least one of us thinks so. Last week was a solid week for us with a combined 9-3 record. That means we'll probably tank it in this week. We've got differing opinions on a few games which always makes things interesting. Name Last Week Season Matt 2-1 22-13-1 St. Sooner 2-1 18-18 Donnie 2-1 16-18-1 Rich 3-0 17-19 On to this week's picks Donnie Wisconsin over Iowa (+10) 34-27. Wisconsin is not as good as they were against Nebraska and Iowa finds a way to make games stay closer than they should....

Oklahoma Sooners Football Opponent Q&A | Talkin' Jayhawks With Rock Chalk Talk

Now that I'm back from my world travels we can commence with the Friday Q&A's. Up today is misterbrain from Rock Chalk Talk to dish out the info on Oklahoma's next opponent. CCM: I feel like we need to start off with the coaching situation. Charlie Weis getting fired is old news but the way the team has been playing since his departure is something to talk about. What are they doing differently in post-Weis era? RCT: Really, the main difference is that Bowen is allowing and encouraging the staff to change things on the fly and find what works.  The biggest sign of this was the switch...

Oklahoma Sooners Injury Report | 11.21.14

The past few weeks have tested the depth of the Oklahoma Sooners football program. After losing star receiver, Sterling Shepard a few weeks ago, the air raid suffered as the youngsters were forced to pick up the slack. Instead, dropped passes became almost an expectation as the learning curve proved to be steep. Now looking at the match-up on Saturday as Owen Field plays host to the Kansas Jayhawks, Shepard remains questionable. Throughout the past two weeks, the wide-out did not practice much yet warmed up before each game. Once the offense took the field, Shepard attempted to see what he...

Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting / Multiple New DB Offers Go Out

The past few days have seen numerous defensive back offers go out to players all across the country. JUCO safety Ezekiel Turner was one, but the Sooners didn't stop there. Here is a list of the players who have picked up offers over the past several recently at the defensive back position. 1. Collin Samuel 6'2" 180lbs from Long Beach Poly High School in Long Beach, California Proud to receive my 14th offer from Oklahoma! #Big12 #Sooners pic.twitter.com/2m7sfdmjO6— Colin Samuel (@Colinsamuel9) November 19, 2014 2. Kareem Orr 5'10" 190lbs. from Chattanooga, TN. Just got offered by...

The Creighton "Comeback Kid" Bluejays Knock Off Oklahoma Sooners 65-63 In Omaha

At the onset of the game, the Oklahoma Sooners appeared to overpower the Doug McDermott-less Creighton Bluejays. Continuing to fight with the sell-out home crowd behind them, the Bluejays eliminated an 18-point deficit. Eventually, the student section stormed the court as Creighton upset the No. 18 Sooners 65-63. Scoring the first seven points of the game, Buddy Hield continued to shoot the ball well. However, it was the defense that kept the opponent off balance. Allowing 6-of-25 shooting (24%) from the field, Oklahoma forced their opponent to create free throw opportunities in order to...

Wednesday Morning Bulletpoints -- 11/19/14

A shot of bulletpoints with a Bill Withers chaser. Happy Wednesday, Sooners fans! I hope your Monday was happy, too, and your Tuesday to boot. I was done in by a lousy internet connection. I can only hope that my Sooner love has some sort of weird Dr. Who time-machine effect that transcends time and space. I’ll go ahead and rip this band-aid off right now: I watched very little of this game. HolaKyle’s gone MIA since the Baylor game, and I was in a car for much of the contest. These bulletpoints may, therefore, be even more skewed towards the snark and less towards the analysis...

Oklahoma Sooners MBB | Opponent Preview: Creighton Bluejays

Making the journey to Omaha, the Oklahoma Sooners must play inside a challenging environment. Over the past several years, Greg McDermott has built a program worthy of earning an invite into the Big East Conference. With the sustained success, the program has watched fan attendance soar through the roof to just shy of 18,000 butts in seats at each home game. Needless to say, the Creighton Bluejays are not to be over looked. Through the first two games of the season, the Bluejays have averaged 94 points per contest with a single returning starter, Austin Chatman. Add to it the fact that...

Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting / OU Offers JUCO Safety

Ezekiel Turner, a JUCO safety picked up an offer from the Sooners yesterday. He let the world know via twitter, Just received my 7th offer from the University of Oklahoma #BoomerSooner pic.twitter.com/LeApzP045J— Ezekiel Turner (@zeke_turner) November 18, 2014 Turner checks in at 6'2" 200lbs. and plays for Pierce Community College in Woodland Hills, California. This the same school that class of 2014 signee Isaac Ijalana. Turner has offers from Arizona St., Illinois, Indiana, and Purdue to go along with his Sooner offer. All of his offer have happened in the last couple of weeks. I...

Oklahoma Sooners Football / Trevor Knight Out for Kansas Game

Numerous reports have surfaced confirming that Trevor Knight will not play this Saturday against Kansas. Trevor Knight has not been cleared to play and the health of a player far outweighs on the field success. To further complicate things, Cody Thomas looked like a QB capable of having some success in this Sooner offense. If you forget his 1st half, Thomas looked quick, agile, made some really good decisions, and ended up leading the Sooner offense that ran over Texas Tech on Saturday. He is not Trevor Knight, and I am not calling for a quarterback change, but Cody Thomas (and a final...

Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting / JUCO WR Set to Visit for Kansas Game

OU currently has 11 scholarship WR (10 depending on the Dorial Green-Beckham situation) and one commit for the class of 2015 in John Humphrey. In spite of the going into next season with 12 scholarship WR's the Sooners have obvious question marks regarding impact players at the position. Shepard's impact in undeniable, Green-Beckham (if he plays next year) should be solid, Neal and Quick are starting to flash signs of being decent options, but that is where it ends. I am not giving up on the large group of underclassmen, as big jumps are usually made during a redshirt year. The Sooners are...

Oklahoma Sooners MBB | Three Things We Learned In 78-53 Win Over SLU

The Oklahoma Sooners opened their season with a 78-53 victory over SLU in Lloyd Noble. Finally getting a chance to witness TaShawn Thomas in action, here are three things to take away. Buddy Hield Proves To One Of Best In Conference In the season opener, Buddy Hield showed the rest of the Big XII exactly why the junior guard is considered to be one of the best in the league, if not the nation. On the afternoon, the star poured in 25 points on a career best and conference tying record on 7-of-7 shooting from behind the arc in just 28 minutes of play. That's certainly a far cry from the...

Oklahoma Sooners MBB Open Season Against Southeastern Louisiana

The Oklahoma Sooners have won 21 consecutive home openers and are looking to extend that streak against Southeastern Louisiana. With a group of talented newcomers, Lon Kruger and this squad has been labeled as a sleeper on the national level. Things To Know Southeastern Louisiana Returning starter Upson had a solid outing during SLU's season opener against the Oklahoma St. Cowboys. During the match-up Upson recorded a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds. The only other returning starter, Joshua Filmore added another 8 points and 6 boards. It's clear that Jay Ladner, a first year...
