Oklahoma Sooners Football: Comparing an OU Commit to an OU Legacy

Oklahoma Sooners Football: Comparing an OU Commit to an OU Legacy

Texas is taking a hard look at son, brother of former Sooners. The controversy surrounding former OU quarterback Charles Thompson helped end Barry Switzer’s long and storied Oklahoma career. That’s why it was so nice, in 2009, when Thompson’s son Kendal announced his intention to come play for Bob Stoops and the Sooners. It wasn’t unexpected, per se. The Southmoore star was really just waiting for the offer. But it was great to see the Thompson family back in crimson and cream after a painful chapter in program history. Of course, we all know how Kendal’s college career ended up....

Oklahoma Sooners Football: Sooners Make Cut For Clemson Grad Transfer Pagano

Oklahoma Sooners Football: Sooners Make Cut For Clemson Grad Transfer Pagano

The DT is considered a prime NFL prospect for next season. It’s hard to believe, but not everything is sunshine and rainbows in the Palmetto State. Sure, the Clemson Tigers just captured their second national title in dramatic last-second fashion over the dynastic Crimson Tide. And yeah, Scott Pagano was a big part of that, if not the starter he probably wanted to be. But the redshirt senior and native Hawaiian announced Friday that he would be leaving Death Valley for his final season of college ball. Pagano graduated with his sociology degree in December and, having finished his...

Oklahoma Sooners Basketball: Sooners Swept in Bedlam, Lose 96-92

Oklahoma couldn’t hold on to yet another late second-half lead. The Oklahoma Sooners almost added an exclamation point to their big basketball week, but couldn’t close out a tight contest at the hostile Gallagher-Iba Arena and dropped another heartbreaker to the OSU Cowboys, 96-92. The loss moves OU to 3-11 in Big 12 despite a huge night from unexpected star Rashard Odomes and a 55% shooting performance. It was State’s first Bedlam sweep since 2004. Longtime Cowboy Phil Forte was an early problem for the Sooners, draining his team’s first 3-ball to put OSU up 10-5 a few minutes in....

Oklahoma Sooners Football: Samaje Perine Proposes to His Girlfriend

The former OU running back used the help of a magician to pop the question. Former Oklahoma running back and current all-time leading rusher Samaje Perine used the help of a magician to pop the question to his girlfriend. That may sound a little corny (it is), but it was actually really cool. Check out the video: This is a pressure-packed moment for any guy, but Samaje was up to the challenge and executed the play with ease. That, of course, should come as no surprise to fans of college football. After all, he does have some experience getting down on one knee. Congrats to Samaje and...

Oklahoma Sooners Baseball: OU vs. Long Beach State Series Preview & Thread

The Sooners open their season today in Norman against the Dirtbags. The Oklahoma Sooners were scheduled to open their season on the road for the first time since 2013, but predicted weekend storms (in Southern California — go figure) have altered the gameplan for OU and its first opponent of 2017, the Long Beach State Dirtbags. Besides having possibly the best nickname in college sports, the Dirtbags are no joke on the field and this will not be a simple series win for Oklahoma. Long Beach State made the postseason last year and returns a lot of talent. They are known for scheduling...

A look at the priority guys for the 2018 class. Now that #SoonerSquad17 is signed, sealed and delivered, Bob Stoops and his staff can take a nice, restful vacay as they gear up for spring football. Lol. Just kidding. No, Oklahoma has been piling up offers and getting ready to woo its next class since before this last one was even inked.
