Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting / Kyler Murray Sticking with A&M

The recruit that almost caused two fan bases to kill each other has made a final decision. Kyler Murray tweeted out just a few minutes ago that he was sticking with A&M. Following my heart... #GigEm— Kyler Murray (@TheKylerMurray) January 30, 2015 There were rumors upon rumors. There were visits that nearly broke twitter. He wore an orange tie. He flirted with three fanbases, but in the end its Gig'Em for Kyler Murray. While his loss will sting for OU fans, his loss for the Longhorns is quite possibly program altering. Here are potential commits that could have ended up at Texas had Kyler...

Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting / Former Sooners Recruiting OL Josh Wariboko

Now Josh Wariboko has tweeted what we've been predicting all week. He will be in Norman this weekend with Dahu Green. He tweeted it out.

Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting / What IF the Sooners Stole Commits from Big 12 teams?

With National Signing Day next Wednesday, I thought it would be fun to look at what recruits that I would love to steal from each of the other Big 12 teams. Obviously this is hypothetical, but here goes nothing. 1. Texas- Linebacker Malik Jefferson 6'2" 220lbs. He is the obvious answer. Not only does he solve a number of issues at linebacker recruiting, but he is a star. Malik is a consensus 5 star recruit and should sadly develop into a star for the Longhorns. Here is a highlight video of Malik in action. 2, Baylor- Quarterback Jarrett Stidham 6'2" 190lbs. While a little slight in...

Oklahoma 81 - Texas Tech 36 | Beyond The Box Score

Opinion: The Culmination of Cruise Control and Complacency

Earlier this afternoon a report surfaced that the stadium renovations had been put on hold. #Sooners Pres. David Boren is delaying football expansion project, will focus on Residential College project first. https://t.co/TQnPIyU5rt— Carey Murdock (@CareyWWLS) January 28, 2015 This was followed by a strong denial by President Boren President Boren calls our reporting false. I can only tell you our sources have been told stadium expansion is on hold.— SoonerScoop.com (@SoonerScoop) January 28, 2015 As far as who is actually correct, the reality is probably somewhere in the middle....

The Final Score Oklahoma - 81, Texas Tech - 36 | Three Takeaways From A Blowout Win

The Oklahoma Sooners returned to form on Wednesday night in front of a home crowd. Dialing up the pressure, the defense allowed a mere 36 Texas Tech Red Raiders points throughout the duration of the game. Climbing back to .500 in conference play, OU blew by their opponent with an 81-36 final score. Three Takeaways Jordan Woodard Can Dunk!?! It's no secret that older brother James has the ability to elevate and throw one down. However, Jordan proved capable as well on Wednesday night. With a steal springing Jordan on a fast break, the sophomore guard made the most of the opportunity. Listed...

Breaking: President Boren Expected To Delay Stadium Renovations

During the summer of 2014, the Board of Regents approved a $370 million proposal to renovate the Gaylord Memorial Stadium. Fast forward to Wednesday when David Boren, the president of the University of Oklahoma, decided to postpone renovations until a further notice according to the fellas over at SoonerScoop.com. Sources tell us the reasons behind the postponement are "market related." That has mostly to do with the current economic climate where oil prices have fallen drastically and stockpiles have built up to record highs in the U.S. - Sooner Scoop Question remains, could the delay...

Oklahoma Sooners MBB | 3 Questions The Texas Tech Red Raiders Must Answer To Secure A Win

Currently sitting at the bottom of the pack, the Texas Tech Red Raiders possess the ability to shake up league play. Looking for proof? Last week TTU caught fire from beyond the arc downing one of the best teams in the country, Iowa State. Now, looking to erase a poor start, the Red Raiders travel to Norman hoping to carry a bit of momentum. How can the visiting team pull of the upset? Owning The Glass Last season, the Red Raiders hit the road with a losing conference record. While many gave them little or no chance in Norman, Texas Tech secured a win by owning the glass. By the time the...

Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting / Signing Day Storylines: How Many More Commits?

The Sooners class currently sits at 19 or 20 (depending on the status of Jenks DL Marquise Overton). As of today (and that will most likely change) the Sooners are still in on the following prospects. 1. OL Josh Wariboko 2. OL Pat Allen 3. OL Maea Teuhema 4. WR AD Miller 5. WR Dahu Green 6. LB John Houston 7. LB Arthur McGinnis 8. DL Darrion Daniels 9. DL Du'Vonta Lampkin The Sooners could (and most likely would accept a commitment from each of the players listed above). That would put them at 28 (assuming Overton is out) and be the best close to a class that the Sooners have every had....

Lincoln Riley is already putting his stamp on the offense. Multiple new WR offers have gone out over the past few days as the Sooners are in the final stretch to National Signing Day. Here is a quick breakdown of the new offers and where they could be potentially headed. 1. Carlos Strickland Carlos starred for Skyline High School in Dallas.

We won't have to wait long as he will announce his decision...

Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting / Signing Day Storylines: Will Josh Wariboko Sign with Sooners?

The Sooners already have a stellar offensive line class, but will look to close out in style with Josh Wariboko. Josh's recruitment has been a roller coaster ride. From an early Sooner commitment, to comments about having little to no interest in the Sooners after his decommitment, it's been a wild ride. The Sooners climbed their way back in and now sit in Wariboko's top 3 along with UCLA and Ohio State. Four-star OL Josh Wariboko still adamant #OhioState is slight leader over #UCLA and #Oklahoma @B2GSports— Adam Gorney (@adamgorney) January 23, 2015 Honestly, I don't believe the Ohio...

Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting / Signing Day Storylines: Where are the Linebackers?

Lots of questions remain as the Sooners look to close down the class of 2015. Crimson and Cream Machine will attempt to shed some light on some big questions (starting with Linebacker) that yet to be answered as we approach National Signing Day (February 4th) 1. Where are the Linebackers? This has been the ongoing cry of Sooner fans and numerous recruiting websites. There are major needs at linebacker and hopefully several solutions. Here are the current facts regarding the linebacker position at OU. - The Sooners currently have one elite player committed in Ricky DeBerry. He is a super...

Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting / Sooners Miss Out on WR Van Jefferson

Just a few days ago, it appeared that WR Van Jefferson was a lock to Oklahoma. In fact there was even some speculation that his father could be the next WR coach for the Sooners (He is currently the WR coach for the Tennessee Titans). That all changed this weekend as Van Jefferson visited Ole Miss this weekend. There must be something down in the water in Oxford, as Van left this weekend with many saying he had committed. In fact we tweeted out Lots of conflicting reports both ways regarding WR Van Jefferson. Some are saying he committed to Ole Miss others are saying he didnt— CC Machine...

Baylor Bears 69 - Oklahoma Sooners 58 | Sooners Drop Second Straight Game

Winning the Big 12 is about collecting wins on the road and outside of a blowout win in Austin on January 5th the Sooners haven't been good away from home in league play. Saturday's 69-58 loss to the Baylor Bears, in Waco, knocked Oklahoma down to a 3-4 record in conference and a team that is suddenly on the NCAA Tournament bubble. Oklahoma shot just 38.7% from the floor against Baylor while the Bears were at 50%. A 6-24 performance from beyond the three-point line was one of the nails in Oklahoma's coffin but you can also throw in a combined 9-21 shooting mark by Oklahoma's big's as the...

Oklahoma Sooners MBB | Behind Enemy Lines With @OurDailyBears & The Baylor Bears

Earlier this season, the Oklahoma Sooners upended the Baylor Bears in Norman, OK. Now the folks from Waco have the opportunity to repay the favor on their own home court. Reaching out to Our Daily Bears, we scored an inside look with one of their writers. Without any further ado, I give you the transcript. Crimson & Cream Machine - Baylor started the conference portion of the schedule running the gauntlet by facing three ranked opponents in the first four games. Right now, it appears as though the Bears will end the regular season with the same type of stretch. Knowing the Big XII is no...
