Hello again, Sooner fans! The sports world is churning at full velocity now. It’s Homecoming Week, and the Oklahoma Sooners football team is now preparing for the Texas Tech Red Raiders. Meanwhile, OU’s basketball squad is gearing up for the start of the season as Big XII Media Day is underway. Things are certainly looking good for the Crimson & Cream across the board.

As for today’s line-up, find out what made Baker Mayfield’s performance even more impressive, what Lincoln Riley thought about Rodney Anderson’s game winner, what the CFP rankings would look like today and more in this edition of Hot Links!

OU Links:

National Links:

  • West Virginia basketball Head Coach Bob Huggins is looking mighty spiffy for media day:
  • Texas QB Sam Ehlinger is in concussion protocol after suffering a hit to the head during the Oklahoma State game. This is coming one week after suffering what appeared to be another head injury against OU. For the sake of Sam’s long-term health, I hope this doesn’t turn out to be another David Ash situation.
  • The first College Football Playoff rankings will be unveiled next Tuesday, but what might those rankings look like if they were released today?
  • Arizona State will be wearing these “Brotherhood” uniforms against USC this week in honor of Pat Tillman and all military veterans. This is both impressive and inspiring.
  • Ohio State is also whipping out alternates for its big game against Penn State. I gotta admit, the scarlet buckeye leaves are a sick touch. Well done.
  • This is one of the better stories you’ll hear during the college football season. Arkansas State head coach Blake Anderson “recounts” a time in which he made a visit to a local elementary school. If you could use a good laugh, I recommend you watch this:

‘Stick to Sports!’:

  • Scientists believe they can bring back the wooly mammoth from extinction. That would be neat to see, for sure, but I’m not so sure about the ethical dilemmas that may arise from something like that.
  • Even if you’re not entirely familiar with the history between Jimmy Kimmel and Matt Damon, this is another hilarious installment in their running (staged) feud. Enjoy:
