2014-15 Oklahoma Sooners Basketball Preview | Returning Strong In The Backcourt

2014-15 Oklahoma Sooners Basketball Preview | Returning Strong In The Backcourt

Last season's top scorer Buddy Hield returns to lead a strong Oklahoma backcourt "They've got quite a bit of experience, but still they're not an old group with Jordan just a sophomore and Buddy and Isaiah (Cousins) juniors. So it's a good combination. Even though it's not a senior-laden group, it's a pretty experienced group and they've been through it. They took that big step last year yet know they want to do more. I like their attitude and approach going into the season with regard to us not yet really accomplishing what we want to and that we have a long way to go. That's healthy." ...

Sooners vs. The Stats | How Oklahoma's Offense Stacks Up Against The Norms

A quick look inside the numbers shows the Sooners are doing better than average on offense. So what's the problem? A 2-2 conference record has Oklahoma fans searching for answers and demanding change. The immediate response to to look at the offense and say the blame lies there. I don't believe that's the answer though. Sure OU's offense has had some issues and you won't find anyone saying the offense has been perfect or even a well oiled machine. What you will find though is an offense that consistently has performed above the averages of the defenses they are playing...

Oklahoma Sooners Baseball Adds 14 Newcomers To The Roster

Although the upcoming baseball season is slated to start on February 13th of 2015, the Oklahoma Sooners took to the diamond with a fair share of newcomers on October 6th. The list of incoming players includes seven transfers and seven freshmen. Ironically, when dividing those player by position there remains seven pitchers and seven fielders. Pitchers Keaton Hernandez | RHP| Weatherford Junior College - Although the righty may not have appeared on the diamond during his high school years, Hernandez proved to be a competitor on the football field. With his arm, Hernandez garnered DII...

2014-15 Oklahoma Sooners Men's Basketball Preview | The Newcomers

Houston transfer TaShawn Thomas could radically change Oklahoma's 2014-15 outlook. Last season Lon Kruger led Oklahoma to their 24th NCAA Tournament appearance since 1983. A new crop of players will help them try to make it 25 this season. A class of four signees and a couple of additional transfers will bolster what had been a fairly thin Oklahoma bench and possibly give the Sooners some new faces in the starting lineup. While Coach Kruger hasn't backed away from the idea some of them will be redshirted there's also no denying that others will be heavily relied upon to help the team...

Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting | Sooners Offer JUCO WR

It's been no secret that outside of Sterling Shepard the Sooners have had a lack of consistency at the WR position. To further complicate things, Shepard could conceivably declare for the NFL draft after this year (I don't think this is likely, but you never know). Michiah Quick flashed a little in the Kansas State game, and Durron Neal has been so-so. The Sooners have decided to offer a prospect that is absolutely destroying the competition at the JUCO level. That player is Dede Westbrook. Westbrook stars for Blinn Junior College in Brenham, TX. His is putting up ridiculous stats compiling...

Picks, Kicks, And Plays - A Look Back At How Kansas State Upset Oklahoma On Saturday

In a span of three weeks Oklahoma's football season has gone from promising, to hopeful, to disastrous. A 31-30 loss to Kansas State on Saturday left the Sooners in need of a lot of help in the conference race and virtually eliminated from college football's first ever playoff. Here's how it happened. There are three different aspects of a football team. You have the offense, the defense, and coaching. When one or more of those aspects isn't functioning properly it makes it extremely difficult to win a game. When all three aspects aren't working properly then you have a disaster on your...

Oklahoma Sooners Football | Michael Hunnicutt's Career Not Defined By Off Day

Following a disappointing loss, fans have mixed emotions towards Michael Hunnicutt, the Oklahoma Sooners' All-Time Leading Scorer. After nearly eliminating the kicking woes of the past...Saturday happened. Call it poor technique or lack of attention to detail, etc...Oklahoma struggled mightily on special teams against Kansas St. However, I'm not one to say a career is defined by a single performance and apparently, neither is the Sooners' head coach. Bob Stoops went on record Monday afternoon defending the kicker during the weekly press conference. "Let me say, Michael has been as...

Sooner Nation Podcast | Where Does This Loss Rank On Your All-Time Pain Level?

We'll be trying something new with this podcast and using Google Hangouts. Please feel free to make fun of us. Kansas State came and did exactly what they intended to. They won! For Oklahoma fans it was about as crushing of a blow as the come, but where does it rank on your all-time list of home losses?

Oklahoma Sooners Drop To #18 In Both Polls After Home Loss

Once again, with the season on the line, the Florida St. Seminoles find a way to win amid controversy.

Oklahoma Sooners Defense Bends But Refuses To Break In 31-30 Loss

The outcome of each game hinges on a few crucial plays. Attacking the defense from all angles, the Kansas St. Wildcats put pressure on their opposition to come up with a game changing play. Unfortunately, the Oklahoma Sooners fell short on multiple opportunities as Bill Snyder pulled out a second win, this time 31-30, in as many trips. "They are ridiculously well coached and efficient. There are only so many things you can do and Jake Waters is an incredible player and Tyler Lockett and the way they run the football," Mike Stoops said after the game. "It is tough match-up and you can see...

Solid Performance By Oklahoma's Offense Isn't Enough To Overcome Mistakes In 31-30 Loss To Kansas State

They say that in football you're either lucky or you're good. That wasn't quite the case in Norman on Saturday as Kansas State was both. The Wildcats capitalized on two Oklahoma turnovers and three special teams' miscues to upset the 11th ranked Sooners 31-30. Perhaps lost in Saturday's setback was Oklahoma's best offensive performance during the month of October. The Sooners passed for 335 yards and ran for 198 more against the Big 12's best run defense. They posted 30 points on the board and had a 7-11 mark on third downs. All of those are improvements over the previous couple of weeks...

A Special Defeat: KSU defeats the Sooners 31-30 - Post Game Thread

This was a game that OU had every opportunity to win, but didn't. How did it come to this? Crimson and Cream machine will have much more in the way of post game coverage, but needless to say this loss stings. Here are some quick snap thoughts after a heartbreaking 31-30 loss. 1. Trevor Knight outside of 1 terrible throw, played a great football game. 2. Sterling Shepard is the best WR in college football. 3. Alex Ross played great at RB today. 4. Alex Ross also completely changes the way teams kick off to the Sooners. 5. Not sure if a celebrity singer said she had a crush on Hunnicutt,...

Oklahoma Sooners Quarterback Trevor Knight Injured Fullback Ripkowski Ejected In First Quarter Against Kansas State

Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight was off to a solid start in Saturday afternoon against #14 Kansas State. The Sooner fans worst nightmare unfolded before their eyes as Knight took a shot to the back while diving at the end of a running play. Before that point, Knight was 4-for-4 before the injury. Back up quarterback Cody Thomas finished the drive for the Sooners which ended on a Samaje Perine touchdown run. Knight came back in on the next drive. Oklahoma fullback Aaron Ripkowski was also ejected on the same play for a targeting call on a block of Wildcats linebacker Ryan Mueller. The...

I'm sadly going to take LSU (-10) at home over Kentucky, although it pains me.  The silver lining that I see, though, is that the line is narrowing.  (Full disclosure, my mom's a UK grad.)

Oklahoma Sooners Football | Three Keys To Victory Over Kansas St. Wildcats

The #14 Kansas St. Wildcats make a return trip to Norman to face the #11 Oklahoma Sooners in what should prove to one to remember. In 2012, Bill Snyder led the squad into what many considered to be the toughest place to play and escaped with a 24-19 win. Can the Wizard pull off an upset once again over Bob Stoops? Oklahoma Sooners Keys To Victory Run The Ball Oklahoma has been exposed as a team that must run the ball in order to be successful on the field. Over the past three games, opposing programs have stacked the box and dared Trevor Knight to throw consistently. Unfortunately, the idea...

Oklahoma Sooners Football | Bold Prediction: KSU QB Jake Waters Has Career Day In Norman

Over the years, Bob Stoops and the Oklahoma Sooners have struggled to defend mobile quarterbacks. This season has failed to portray a different a different picture as two quarterbacks have set career highs against this Sooner defense. (Let me remind you that those career games have both come outside of Norman.) Now, hosting the Kansas St. Wildcats, the coaching staff once again finds themselves preparing the team for just that...a dual-threat quarterback in Jake Waters. Trevone Boykin Sets Career High 395 All-Purpose Yards Two career highs have been set by opposing quarterbacks already...

Opponent Q&A | Talkin' Oklahoma And Kansas State Football With Bring On The Cats

Friday brings us face-to-face with an opponent blogger and stepping up this week is Curtis Kitchen from SB Nation's Bring on the Cats. Let's talk some football! CCM: Quarterback Jake Waters leads the team in both passing and rushing yards. What have been the keys to his success this season? BOTC: K-State's system has always been QB-stat friendly, and this year - not surprisingly - isn't any different. Waters, like many guys before him, has grown comfortable in what the system asks from him - namely pre-snap reads. He has always been a great passer, but his work this past offseason with...

Kansas State Wildcats At Oklahoma Sooners | What To Expect From The OU Defense

Oklahoma's defense has been put to the test over the last two weeks. Career days have been the norm for quarterbacks facing Oklahoma's defense over the last couple of weeks. On October fourth TCU's Trevone Boykin produced 395 all-purpose yards in the Frogs' 37-33 upset win over the Sooners. Seven days later Tyrone Swoopes passed for a career-high 334 yards in OU's 31-26 win over Texas at the Cotton Bowl. Now Oklahoma faces Kansas State and Jake Waters who leads an offense that is averaging 40.8 points per game. Waters is completing 65% of his passes this season but also leads Kansas State...
