Happy Friday, Sooner fans! Here are some links to occupy your time if work is slow (or if you’re at home because the office is closed on account of snow).
- Samaje Perine and Joe Mixon have moved on from college football, and there’s much speculation as to where they could each potentially land. Scott Reynolds of PewterReport.com — a site that covers the Tampa Bay Buccaneers — has Samaje Perine ending up on Florida’s gulf coast. Additionally, former Sooner Gerald McCoy gave his thoughts on the two dynamic backs.
- Speaking of Joe Mixon, here’s an incredibly weird interview with his agent that occurred on the Sports Animal earlier today.
- Six Oklahoma commits are down in San Antonio for the U.S. Army All-American game, and one in particular — Jacob Phillips — has stood out during this week’s practices.
- Oklahoma’s men’s basketball squad has struggled as of late, and CBS Sports personality/OU nemesis Doug Gottlieb shared some of his thoughts on the matter with Heartland College Sports.
- In-game coverage of sporting events has evolved quite a bit over the years, and ESPN will be continuing that trend on Monday.
- It’s now official that P.J. Fleck will “Row the Boat” as the head coach of the Minnesota Golden Gophers. For a program that sometimes has trouble generating excitement, this should certainly help.
- Les Miles also reportedly interviewed for the Minnesota gig, but it appears his job hunt is not over. He also recently mentioned in an interview that the TV booth is not something that’s currently on his radar.
- Alex Scarborough of ESPN shows us what it’s like to be a big-time college football mascot. It’s a cool piece, but I think I’d choose to pass on that gig.
“Stick to sports!”
- Martin Scorsese was intending to create a biopic portraying the life and career of Frank Sinatra, but Sinatra’s estate unfortunately wouldn’t agree to it. That’s something I would love to have seen.
- Ever wonder what it’s like to be inside of a 270-foot wind turbine? Wonder no more.
- Americana is a broad and often vague musical genre, and the Grammys have never been able to get it right.
