Oklahoma Sooners Baseball | Alex Wise Strikes Again To Lead OU To Late Victory

If you like dramatic baseball and haven't caught any of the series between Oklahoma and BYU then you've absolutely missed out. On Thursday night junior Alex Wise scored in the eighth inning, as a pinch runner, to give OU a 7-6 come from behind win. Friday afternoon it was BYU's Derrick Whitney who delivered a ninth inning home run that allowed the Cougars to snap Oklahoma's four-game winning streak by a final of 4-3.

Oklahoma Sooners MBB | Behind Enemy Lines With Andrew Felts & Frogs O' War

After a week off, the Oklahoma Sooners are back in action on the hardwood with a legitimate shot at winning the conference. Currently in a three way tie for second place, the Sooners must take the remainder of the season one game at a time. The TCU Horned Frogs are the first obstacle standing between Oklahoma and a potential regular season conference title. To preview the game, I reached out to Andrew Felts of Frogs O' War. Here is what transpired... CCM - The Horned Frogs earned their first regular season sweep since joining the Big XII. Is it a sign and that the program is headed in the...

Oklahoma Baseball | Winning Streak Snapped By Ninth Inning Home Run

BYU left fielder Derrick Whitney took all of the air out of what was shaping up to be a second consecutive Oklahoma Baseball comeback in as many days. Approaching the the plate with two away in the top of the ninth of a tie game, Whitney took a 1-1 offering from Oklahoma's junior righty Keaton Hernandez and sent it over the right field fence for the go ahead run. After falling behind 3-1 in the top of the fifth, Oklahoma rallied in the bottom of the seventh when Sheldon Neuse and Anthony Hermelyn knocked in Josh Ake and Taylor Alspaugh. Having taken the momentum in the game it appeared as if...

Sooners Rally Over BYU To Win Fourth Straight

The magic was back for Oklahoma in Las Vegas on Thursday night and the Sooners needed every ounce of it in their come from behind win over BYU. In his worst start of the season, Jacob Elliott was rocked for six runs in 4.2 innings. Fortunately he was relieved by Robert Tasin and Jacob Evans who kept the Cougars off the board, and hitless, the rest of the way. Evans picked up the win by striking out five BYU batters over the final two innings of the game. For Cougars starter Kolton Mahoney it was feast or famine. He kept Oklahoma's batters at bay through the first half of the game and then...

Blogging The Bracket | Where Are The Sooners Projected To Go Dancing?

A quick look at the Big 12 basketball standings shows that Kansas, Oklahoma, Iowa State, and West Virginia are all separated by just a single game. That means that the likely possibilities for the Sooners are to finish anywhere from first through sixth in the final conference standings. What this means for OU in the post season is that they could be anywhere from a #2 to a #8 in the NCAA Tournament.

Sam Bradford Headed to the Bills?

Sam Bradford is probably my favorite Sooner of the Bob Stoops era. I still remember him lighting up teams, breaking records, and his full out flip into the endzone against Oklahoma State. When drafted first overall to the St. Louis Rams, I was excited thinking that in time Bradford would be surrounded by an OL and WRs to compete at the highest level. That dream has all but died as Bradford's career has been haunted by injuries and questionable player personnel acquisitions and draft picks. I firmly believe that Bradford would be best served by a fresh start, and according to a Yahoo Sports...

Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting / Sooners Offer 2016 LB Pernell Jefferson

The Sooners need for linebacker in the class of 2016 is big. While already having one commitment in Jon-Michael Terry, the Sooners have continued to evaluate and offer prospects for the class of 2016. That evaluation led to the offer of linebacker Pernell Jefferson. Pernell tweeted out the offer. #Blessed to be Offered by Oklahoma Sooners pic.twitter.com/dFHi9SGdga— #32 Problems (@PDJ32) February 24, 2015 Jefferson plays for Warren East Senior High School in New Orleans, LA.

Oklahoma Baseball Notes | Carpenter Claims National And Conference Honors - Wise Out With Broken Hand

Kolby Carpenter's big week earned him some honors both locally and nationally. On Monday the Big 12 Conference named him the Player of the Week and Collegiate Baseball News dubbed him as the National Player of the Week. In Oklahoma's five games last week he batted .471, scored seven times, drove in 9 runs, hit three home runs while also recording a double and a triple. I guess you could say that the kid was busy. Carpenter makes it back-to-back weeks for the Sooners having a conference Player of the Week. Pitcher Jake Elliott was recognized last week for his performance on opening day...

Oklahoma Sooners Football / Jordan Phillips Combine and Draft Overview

Jordan Phillips time at OU was shortened by reoccurring back injuries and declaring for the NFL draft after his redshirt junior season. At time he was unblockable and then he would often disappear for games at a time. That being said he could in the right situation (3-4 defense) and with a run of good health become a dominant force in the NFL. Here is his combine overview and draft prediction. HT: 6-5 WT: 329 ARM LENGTH: 34 3/4" HANDS: 9 3/8" 40 YARD DASH: 5.17 seconds BENCH PRESS: 28 reps VERTICAL: 30" BROAD JUMP: 8'9" 3 CONE DRILL: 7.88 seconds 20 YARD SHUTTLE: 4.68 seconds McShay says...

Oklahoma Sooners Move Up One Spot To No. 16 In Latest AP Poll

While the major story line around college basketball continues to center around the legitimate possibility of the Kentucky Wildcats running the table, a few other teams are peaking. One of those programs happens to be the Oklahoma Sooners who recently found a bit of bench scoring, a much needed aspect of the game if the gang hopes to make a deep run in the NCAA Tournament. After a tough loss last week on the road, Oklahoma responded with two wins including a 71-69 win victory over the Texas Longhorns. Sweeping both rivals during the regular season, the Sooners now hold the No. 16 national...

Oklahoma Sooners Football / Tyrus Thompson Combine and Draft Overview

Tyrus Thompson had every opportunity to improve his draft stock at the combine. Here is our 4th installment overviewing every draft eligible player for the Sooners. Tyrus anchored the left side of the offensive line for the Sooners for what seemed like a decade. He decided to not run the 40 yard dash at the combine in order to make sure he was as healthy as possible when he runs. He will most assuredly run at OU's pro day. Here is an overview of his combine workouts and our draft projections for him. HT: 6-5 WT: 324 ARMS: 34 7/8" HANDS: 10 1/4" BENCH PRESS: 29 reps VERTICAL: 29" BROAD...

Seventh Inning Rally Leads Sooners To Third Consecutive Win

Sunday was a special day for Oklahoma junior Kolby Carpenter. As the Sooners were trying to closeout a winning week of baseball in Arizona it was Carpenter who literally provided the punch OU desperately needed. Trailing 3-1 going into the seventh inning, the Sooners were on the verge of a rally. A one-out single (and then advancing to second on a throwing error) by Anthony Hermelyn give Oklahoma momentum. Austin O'Brien then knocked him home to cut the Utes lead to a single run at 3-2. Finally it was Carpenter's time to shine and that's exactly what he did. The 6-0/175 native of Waco, TX...

Oklahoma Sooners Football / Adam Shead Combine and Draft Overview

Sorry for the delay in getting these out. Sometimes the job that pays the bills has to take precedence. That being said here is our 3rd installment giving an overview each draft eligible player for the Sooners. This article will look at Adam Shead.

Sooners Beat Tech 79-75 In Overtime | Let's Go Beyond The Box Score

You want drama? Well Oklahoma's men's basketball team will give it to you. The theory that there is no safe place to play on the road in the Big 12 was proven to be a fact on Saturday when the Sooners clawed out a 79-75 win over Texas Tech in Lubbock. Here are a few things that you may, or may not, have noticed during the game. * Texas Tech outscored Oklahoma 6-0 over the final 1:13 of regulation to send the game into overtime. * Lon Kruger said after the game that this was the first time in his career when fouling, while up by three in the final seconds, didn't work for him. * Saturday was...

Second Consecutive Strong Start From The Mound Lifts Sooners To Back-to-Back Wins

Oklahoma may have found another piece of the puzzle in Arizona on Saturday and it allowed them to accomplish something they haven't done since the opening weekend...win back-to-back games. Fresh off Jake Elliott's strong performance against Washington on Friday afternoon, Alec Hansen delivered a masterpiece of his own on Saturday. Oklahoma's 6-7/235 sophomore mowed down twelve of the twenty batters that he faced in five innings of works and limited Oregon State to just two runs during that time. During those five innings Oklahoma's offense produced six runs and allowed Hansen to even his...

Oklahoma Sooners Outlast Texas Tech Red Raiders In 79-75 Overtime Win

Late in regulation, Toddrick Gotcher stepped up to the charity stripe. Missing the mark, teammate Isaiah Manderson secured the rebound while finding Gotcher once again for the game tying 3-point shot to take it to overtime. However, Oklahoma's Buddy Hield would knock down consecutive three point attempts to give the Sooners the lead before edging out the Red Raiders 79-75. The lack of production from Hield (2 points in regulation) thanks to foul trouble during the course of the game forced Oklahoma to find a scorer off the bench. Fortunately, Frank Booker answered the call with a career...

Oklahoma Sooners Football / Daryl Williams' Combine and Draft Overview

Here is our second installment of our series taking a look at each Sooner player eligible for the NFL draft. In this post we turn to Daryl Williams. HT: 6-6 WT: 329 40 YARD DASH: 5.34 seconds BENCH PRESS: 27 reps VERTICAL: 26" BROAD JUMP: 8'1" 20 YARD SHUTTLE: 5.15 seconds An OT as big/powerful as Daryl Williams shouldn't be able to run 1.75 10-yard split. I'd be fine w/ him in Round 1. Panthers at 25 logical. — Chris Trapasso (@ChrisTrapasso) February 20, 2015 Really like how Daryl Williams "attacks" DLs w/o lunging/getting off balance as pass protector. Should instantly be...

Oklahoma Sooners Football / Blake Bell's Day at the Combine

We are beginning a series of post giving an overview of each Sooner player that is eligible for the NFL Draft. This overview will include height, weights, 40 times, vertical jumps, etc... and what round each guy at CCM believes they will be selected in the upcoming draft. Today we begin with Blake Bell. Blake Bell had the ability just like any athlete to enhance or hurt his draft stock in Indianapolis today and by all accounts he showed well. Here are his combine numbers as well as some analysts thoughts on him. We also threw in a funny pic of Blake for good measure along with our draft...
