Happy Thursday, Sooner fans! Today, I post from the friendly confines of the Sooner State, but I’ll be posting from enemy territory tomorrow. I’ve never been to Austin before (passing through on I-35 doesn’t count), so I’m actually kind of looking forward to it.
Anyway, you are entering the home stretch of the work week, so here are some links to help you get there.
- ESPN considers Oklahoma to be one of eight programs that can be considered “blue bloods” of the game. We don’t need the Worldwide Leader to tell us how important we are, but it’s flattering nonetheless. OU is tied with four other programs at the top of the list.
- OU linebacker Curtis Bolton will miss the opener against Houston due to a patellar tendon injury. Bolton was doing well in fall camp and was considered to be one of the primary backups at the inside linebacker position.
- On a basketball note, Norman North PG Trae Young has announced that he will take his official visit to OU during the weekend of the Ohio State football game.
If you haven’t watched Trae Young play basketball, you need to. He’s one of the top PG recruits in the country, and OU is considered to be one of the frontrunners.
- Bruce Feldman has given his team-by-team predictions for 2016, and he projects OU to go 11-1 and win the Big 12 .
- Oklahoma Athletics has announced that OU’s radio broadcasts can now be streamed for free around the world.
- Cody Stavenhagen of the Tulsa World points out that the Sooners have more depth at the LB position than they had a season ago.
- The Evans brothers hope to both start for the Sooners this season. Can you think of the last time siblings took the field together on Owen Field? Answer in the comments!
