Sooner Fans Go "Scoreboard" On 'Bama Safety Landon Collins

In the world of sports there are winners and losers, and then there are sore losers and Alabama safety Landon Collins is turning out to be be the later. In an interview posted on ESPN.com on Thursday, Collins said that the 45-31 loss to Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl has been motivation for the Tide's defense this spring. "That just fires it up, because we know what type of defense we are," Collins said. "We already know what we are capable of. Just to hear that we got picked apart by an offense that shouldn't have been on the field with us, that's a disgrace to Alabama defense. We need to...

Oklahoma Sooners Spring Football Recap | Not Time To Panic On Running Backs Yet

Limited action by the running backs in Oklahoma's spring game doesn't necessarily mean trouble for the fall. It was presumed that Oklahoma's spring game would be a crucial opportunity for running back Alex Ross. With the progression of Keith Ford, and the arrivals of Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine this summer, it was believed that Ross would need to make a significant impression through the spring and then shine in the Red/White game to mark his spot in the hunt to be a significant player in Oklahoma's run game this fall. The problem is that he only touched the ball three times in the spring...

Cody Thomas hooked up with tight end Taylor McNamera for the first score of the day Hands down the best quarterback performance in Saturday's Red/White game belonged to Baker Mayfield.

With Mayfield ineligible until 2015 he's become the ultimate team player by contributing any way that he can. "I had the plan to come here because I wanted to win a national championship," Mayfield said, "whether it's driving the defense on scout team or...
