Oklahoma Sooners Softball: Auburn Super Regional Preview and Thread

Oklahoma Sooners Softball: Auburn Super Regional Preview and Thread

It’s a rematch of last year’s WCWS finals. We’ve seen this story before. Last year’s Women’s College World Series final was three tight, tense games that came right down to the wire before the Oklahoma Sooners topped the Auburn Tigers 2-1 in the rubber match to claim their third national championship in Oklahoma City. The Tigers struck back in the first game of 2017 with a 3-2 victory. Clearly these are evenly matched teams who want another shot at each other. But this time, Oklahoma will have to take two of three on the road. In the Norman Regional, Oklahoma became just the...
Oklahoma Sooners Football: The Greatest Oklahomans in OU Football History: Part 2

Oklahoma Sooners Football: The Greatest Oklahomans in OU Football History: Part 2

We conclude our countdown with the top 10 Oklahoma natives in OU history. When we unveiled part one of the 20 greatest Oklahomans to play for the Sooners earlier this week, we took a trip back through the careers of several familiar Sooner State standouts such as Teddy Lehman, Gerald McCoy, Sterling Shepard and Ryan Broyles. As homegrown talent has been the bedrock of the OU program through multiple eras of a winning tradition, it would take a truly legendary career to outshine the accomplishments of the players above who just missed the cut for the top ten. So with no further delay,...
Oklahoma Sooners Baseball: Sooners Eliminated From Big 12 Tournament by TCU

Oklahoma Sooners Baseball: Sooners Eliminated From Big 12 Tournament by TCU

The Sooners will learn where they’re going for NCAA Tournament play on Monday. The Oklahoma Sooners (34-22) fell to the TCU Horned Frogs (40-15) by a score of 9-4 at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City. The loss eliminated Oklahoma from the 2017 Big 12 Baseball Championship. Sooner ace Jake Irvin did not have an ideal outing, allowing four runs on six hits through 5.1 innings and earning his second loss of the season. Relievers Connor Berry, JB Olson and Dylan Grove didn’t fare much better, allowing five runs through 2.2 combined. TCU starter Jared Janczak improved to 8-0...

Oklahoma Sooners Baseball: Sooners Fall to Texas in Oklahoma City

The Sooners will play the TCU Horned Frogs at 12:30 on Thursday. The Oklahoma Sooners fell to the Texas Longhorns by a score of 8-4 on Wednesday night, dropping to 34-21 on the season. The Sooners now move to the loser’s bracket and will face TCU at 12:30 PM on Thursday at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City. Andrew Wiles earned the loss for OU and fell to 4-4 on the season. The relievers, most notably Ryan Madden, did well to stop the bleeding when Wiles exited after 2.1 innings. After a pair of quick outs, Wiles hit Travis Jones to keep the inning alive. In the next at-bat,...

We’re counting down the Top 10 Texans in the history of Sooner football. On Monday, Crimson & Cream Machine published Part 1 of the 20 greatest Texans in OU football history. In the 120+ years of OU football, Texans have always played a vital role in the team’s success. We looked back on greats like Dede Westbrook, Greg Roberts and Derrick Strait. Today, the home stretch: our Top 10. Everyone knows that some of OU’s best-ever players hail from the Lone Star State. But which ones rise above the rest? 10.

Oklahoma Sooners Hot Links: Will Samaje Perine Contend for NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year?

Samaje Perine could have a big year with the Washington Redskins. Good afternoon, Sooner nation! The Big 12 Baseball Tournament at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark commences today. If you live in the area and can get out there between now and the weekend -- do it! The Oklahoma Sooners will play a rivalry game right off the bat (I couldn’t help myself) against Texas at 7:30 CT.

In a Player’s Tribune-style letter, O’Brien details what he and the...
Oklahoma Sooners Football - POLL: Do you respect Mike Gundy’s mullet game?

Oklahoma Sooners Football - POLL: Do you respect Mike Gundy’s mullet game?

Please weigh in on this incredibly important issue. There are some things that, when seen in the wild, require instant photography, like a celebrity, a bald eagle, or a double rainbow. Oklahoma State Cowboys coach Mike Gundy’s mullet — the Arkansas Waterfall, if you will — is one such thing. It’s entirely possible that Gundy’s hairdo has eclipsed himself in celebrity. Here’s an example of a post I see nearly weekly on Twitter. It’s hard to look away from, honestly — maybe in the same way that one can’t look away from a car wreck: pic.twitter.com/aX1e0rL1BE— Mike Harris...
Oklahoma Sooners Baseball: Sooners Suffer Bedlam Sweep

Oklahoma Sooners Baseball: Sooners Suffer Bedlam Sweep

The Sooners stranded too many baserunners to take game two over Oklahoma State. The Oklahoma Sooners (34-20, 12-11 Big 12) stranded eight baserunners and couldn’t take advantage of opportunity in a Saturday night 5-2 loss to the Oklahoma State Cowboys (26-25, 8-14 Big 12) that gave OSU a sweep in a rain-shortened series. Originally scheduled to play on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, the two teams were forced to finish Friday’s game and play a final one on Saturday after two days of stormy weather ripped through Oklahoma. Always a neutral-site series, the games were played at OKC’s...

Oklahoma Sooners Hot Links: Rainouts for Baseball & Softball

Bedlam baseball will be limited to a two-game series this weekend. Happy Saturday, Sooner fans! The forecast is looking pretty promising across the state of Oklahoma today, which is a welcome change from the destructive weather we’ve seen over the past few days. On Thursday and Friday, storms have rained out two of Oklahoma’s baseball games against OSU, as well as the softball team’s first game in the Norman Regional. The baseball team will finish the second half of game one on Saturday at 4:35, and a second (and final) game will be played at 7:05 in OKC. The softball squad trails...

The speedy athlete from Rockdale, Texas, is hot on OU’s radar. Texas 2018 wide receiver/cornerback Jaquayln Crawford is on a visit to Norman this weekend as he continues his recruiting process. The four-star speedster has held the Oklahoma Sooners among his top 10 schools from early on in the recruiting cycle and could become the elite offensive perimeter commit the class of ‘18 has been waiting on.

Oklahoma Sooners Hot Links: Baker Mayfield’s Heisman Hype

On Baker Mayfield, Quentin Griffin, double-headers and rowdy presidents. It’s Friday, Sooner Nation! With 100 days still to go before college football returns, we’re officially in the doldrums. Pretty soon, though, preview magazines will hit the shelves and a whole lot of so-called experts — including us — will start making predictions about what’s to come in 2017. But while it’s fun to look forward, it’s good to remind ourselves about the people who built this program. Last weekend one of those guys, Quentin Griffin, finally earned his diploma 15 years after he first left...
Oklahoma Sooners Softball: Preview, Live Thread, & How to Watch the Norman Regional

Oklahoma Sooners Softball: Preview, Live Thread, & How to Watch the Norman Regional

Oklahoma hosts Arkansas, Tulsa and North Dakota State this weekend. The Oklahoma Sooners are on a heck of a run as of late, winning 27 of their last 28 games. Despite this fact, they were somehow seeded 10th overall last weekend, meaning that they’ll likely have to hit the road for the Super Regionals. But for now the Sooners get to play at the friendly confines of the OU Softball Complex, where they host Arkansas, Tulsa and North Dakota State in the Norman Regional. OU’s first game against North Dakota State will begin at 2 p.m. CT on Friday (weather permitting). Players to Watch Shay...
Oklahoma Sooners Baseball: It’s Bedlam, Baby

Oklahoma Sooners Baseball: It’s Bedlam, Baby

Oklahoma heads to OneOK and Bricktown for a series against Oklahoma State. “If they win the Bedlam series, I think they’ll host.” So uttered Kendall Rogers of D1Baseball.com in the site’s weekly podcast on Monday, predicting that the Oklahoma Sooners (34-18, 12-9 Big 12) will host a regional for the first time since 2010 if they win the Bedlam series against Oklahoma State (24-25, 6-14 Big 12) this weekend. Normally, that’s a daunting proposition. But the Pokes are in the middle of a highly disappointing season that has a chance to end not just before regionals, but before the Big...
Oklahoma Sooners Football: How Will the Early Signing Period Impact OU?

Oklahoma Sooners Football: How Will the Early Signing Period Impact OU?

For the first time this year, recruits can sign with schools in December if they choose. Last week the Collegiate Commissioners Association voted to approve a new early signing period for recruits, a 72-hour window beginning December 20 that will have a big impact on college football for years to come. (And inspire a lot of bad Christmas puns. “Look what Santa brought the Sooners!” Ugh.) But who will benefit from the new rules? Maybe the new period will keep blue blood programs — like Oklahoma — from poaching kids from lesser schools at the last minute. Or maybe having locked-in...

Oklahoma Sooners Hot Links: OU Softball, Baseball Roll

It was a pivotal weekend for Oklahoma in both sports. Happy Monday, Sooner Nation! I hope the weekend (and Mother’s day!) treated you as well as it did Sooner baseball and softball. Patty Gasso’s softball squad won the Big 12 tournament (in addition to their regular season title) on Saturday in a Bedlam matchup. Surprisingly, it’s just the second time the Oklahoma Sooners have completed the title sweep. Congratulations to ace Paige Parker, who took home the tournament’s Most Outstanding Player award. Pete Hughes’ baseball squad got in on some of the fun too, winning a huge series...
