2017 Oklahoma Sooners Football Countdown To Kickoff | 39 Days!

2017 Oklahoma Sooners Football Countdown To Kickoff | 39 Days!

The Oklahoma Sooners amassed 39 consecutive home wins from 2005-2011. For today’s edition of our countdown to kickoff, we find ourselves 39 days away from the most wonderful time of the year. 39. That is also the number of consecutive home games that the Oklahoma Sooners won from 2005 to 2011. Truly a remarkable feat of consistency and dominance. But, just how dominant was the Crimson & Cream over the duration of that 39-game home winning streak? Well, out of those home games, only one went past regulation. It was a memorable 37-30 double OT victory early in the streak during the 2005...

Oklahoma Sooners Hot Links: Landry Jones quite possibly has the best job in the world

Oklahoma Sooners Hot Links: Landry Jones quite possibly has the best job in the world

Also, this weekend’s BBQ is a big recruiting opportunity for Lincoln Riley. Happy Tuesday, Sooner nation! We’re in the home stretch. Soon, we’ll stop talking about football and just watch the damn thing. And it will be a beautiful day. Without further ado, here’s today’s edition of Hot Links: OU Links: I’ve often said that there’s no cushier job than being a backup QB in the NFL — they get paid pretty good sums of cash with relatively high job security to stand around 90% of the time. Former Sooner standout Landry Jones knows this well. I’ve got to say, Trae Young is...

Oklahoma Sooners Baseball: Keeping up with the 2017 MLB draftees

Taking a look at the four Sooners drafted in the 2017 MLB Draft. With a rather surprising season, the 2017 OU baseball team has built up a large amount of talent. Usually when a school fields a good squad, the MLB Draft begins to pick at that talent. However, the 2017 MLB Draft did not empty the nucleus. Four Sooner were selected while one was later signed as an undrafted free agent. With the MLB Draft being long gone, it’s time to look at how these Sooners are faring. Devon Perez becomes the fourth #Sooners draftee to the Angels, including MLBers Willits and Richards....
Oklahoma Sooners Football: The potential for a backfield by committee

Oklahoma Sooners Football: The potential for a backfield by committee

Oklahoma has a few backs who could set themselves apart, but why not hit teams with different looks? As one of the new guys at C&C Machine, I figured there was no to break in than to talk about the situation at running back. Since Lincoln Riley took over the Oklahoma Sooners offense in 2015, we’ve seen primarily two backs carry the load of the running game, but with no definitive lead back coming into the fall we may see a change. While it hasn’t been a common thing at Oklahoma, it’s possible to see a very distributed load across three, four or even five running backs this upcoming...

2017 Oklahoma Sooners Football Countdown To Kickoff | 42 Days!

2017 Oklahoma Sooners Football Countdown To Kickoff | 42 Days!

Rufus Alexander’s name belongs among the best linebackers in OU history. As we continue counting down to kickoff, today we chose to spotlight a former defensive great who starred for Bob Stoops through the mid-2000s. With 42 days left until the Oklahoma Sooners take the field against UTEP, here’s a look back at standout linebacker Rufus Alexander. The Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year and a first-team consensus All-American in 2006, Alexander became the first Sooner to lead the team in tackles for consecutive seasons (2005-06) since Rocky Calmus (1999-2001). He started 36 games in his...

Oklahoma Sooners Football: OU needs Neville Gallimore to be its next great defensive tackle

The Canadian sophomore is poised for a breakout season at Oklahoma The Oklahoma Sooners have a long history of dominant defensive tackles — from Granville Liggins in the 1960s to the Selmon brothers and Reggie Kinlaw in the 70s, Rick Bryan in the 80s, Tommie Harris in the early 2000s all the way up to Gerald McCoy in the late 2000s, some of the greatest defensive linemen in the history of college football have dawned the Crimson & Cream. That lineage has fallen off a bit over the past eight seasons since McCoy’s departure. Enter Neville Gallimore, Lincoln Riley’s 6’2”, 310-pound...

Oklahoma Sooners Softball: Former Sooners starring in National Pro Fastpitch League

Lauren Chamberlain, Keilani Ricketts and Shelby Pendley are all shining at the next level. You don’t have to follow college sports to know the Oklahoma Sooners dominate in softball. Alright, maybe you do, but the team is notoriously good (like really, really, really good) and besides crediting the legendary Patty Gasso you have to shine light on some standouts. Some of which have continued their career into the National Pro Fastpitch League, and to no surprise, they’re still dominating. Lauren Chamberlain: LoLo was a force for Oklahoma and is still raking in the NPF for the USSSA Pride....

Oklahoma Sooners Football: Headlines, quotes and video from OU’s time at Big 12 Media Days

Lincoln Riley, Baker Mayfield, Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, Orlando Brown and Steven Parker represented Oklahoma well in Texas. Happy Tuesday, Sooner fans. C&C Machine was down in the DFW area on Monday for Oklahoma’s turn at Big 12 Media Days, and OU’s representatives didn’t disappoint. But first, here are a few things of note that came to light on Monday: Lincoln Riley mentioned to a group of reporters that Will Sunderland — who was charged with felony burglary last month — will not be back with the team unless he is exonerated. Additionally, quarterback Chris Robison has not been with...
Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting: The past, present and future of Lincoln Riley’s first class

Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting: The past, present and future of Lincoln Riley’s first class

Lincoln Riley has vaulted OU’s 2018 class back into the national top 10. Just as with an actual football team, there are few better ways to start a recruiting class than with a big, rock-solid, five-star left tackle. And with Brey Walker’s commitment in November 2015(!), Bob Stoops and the Oklahoma Sooners had found just that. Walker was a tone-setter, a beacon, a totem. Some years the state of Oklahoma is a recruiter’s afterthought; other times it’s a wellspring of talent. And 2018 was shaping up to be one of those fertile years. People began talking about OU and a clean sweep of...

Crawford is the fourth receiver commitment of Oklahoma’s 2018 class. Things were a bit quiet on the recruiting front during the recent dead period, but Lincoln Riley and the Oklahoma Sooners are back up and running after earning a commitment from four-star athlete Jaquayln Crawford. The Rockdale, Texas, native chose Oklahoma over the TCU Horned Frogs, Texas Longhorns and Texas A&M Aggies. THANK YOU GOD.. I'm a Sooner , #Committed ⭕️ .. pic.twitter.com/MLxLFzcDRk— .

2017 Oklahoma Sooners Football Countdown To Kickoff | 47 Days!

The number 47 holds a special place in Oklahoma football history. Happy Monday, Sooner Nation! The Oklahoma Sooners are now 47 days away from kicking off their 2017 season, so today we thought we’d look back at the most impressive winning streak of all-time — 47 straight. Heading into Bud Wilkinson’s seventh season in 1953, the Sooners were about to permanently etch their names in history with one of the most impressive feats in all of sport. Beginning with a 19-14 win over Texas in the Cotton Bowl in Dallas on Oct. 10, 1953, OU would not lose again until five seasons later on...

2017 Oklahoma Sooners Football Countdown To Kickoff | 49 Days!

Jonathan Jackson became one of OU’s most productive pass rushers in the Bob Stoops era. We’re down to 49 days until the Oklahoma Sooners’ season opener against UTEP, so today we chose to spotlight a former defensive star who wore No. 49 — the explosive pass rusher Jonathan Jackson. Jackson was a beast on the defensive line on the opposite side of fellow standout Dan Cody in his final two seasons in 2003 and ’04. The Sooners’ unit on the defensive line was one of the most consistent and productive during those early seasons under Bob Stoops. Jackson in his four seasons at...

Tulsa Union safety Patrick hopped on board back in February and has proven to be a...
