Happy hump day, Sooner fans!
- As you know, Jordan Woodard’s career at Oklahoma has come to an end after an ACL tear. Our own Matt Ravis wrote about how Woodard will go down as an all-time great at OU despite a tough senior season.
- Speaking of Woodard, he had a message for his team last night. His team listened, of course.
- The NFL has posted the list of players invited to the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine, and former Sooners Samaje Perine, Dede Westbrook and Charles Walker are expected to be in Indianapolis, while Jordan Evans, Ahmad Thomas and others did not receive invites. It was previously reported the Joe Mixon has been barred from participating.
- Speaking of Mixon, NFL Draft analyst Mike Mayock has him as the No. 5 running back available.
- Hoops experts over at Rivals (including Joe Duvall of SoonerScoop.com) discussed the future of five-star Norman North PG Trae Young, who will announce his decision tomorrow. Here’s what they had to say.
- Mike Gundy wore a wresting singlet to promote OSU’s wrestling match against Penn State. He also has a mullet and a coffee mug that reads ‘Big Daddy’. It’s all pretty funny and endearing, but don’t let any of it distract you from the fact that he’s 2-10 against OU as OSU’s head football coach.
- Minnesota head coach P.J. Fleck has reached a $50,000 deal with his old employer for the rights to the ‘Row the Boat’ slogan. I’m kind of surprised Western Michigan didn’t get more for it. He clearly values the slogan, so why not push that number up to six figures? At least that’s what I would’ve done.
- Randy Moss, ladies and gentlemen.
- The Friday Night Lights creator is releasing a documentary series on the nation’s top high school QB prospects, which should be interesting.
- The NCAA may tweak college football’s targeting rule. I’m on board.
“Stick to Sports!”
- Rolling Stone released its list of the top 50 stand-up comedians of all time, and it’s pretty solid. I think John Mulaney and Tom Segura are some of the young guys who you could see on this type of list in a decade or so.
- The Lost Ogle released a list of the “8 sexiest buildings in Oklahoma”. I’ve always been quite fond of the Nipple Church (or the “Boob Church” as I grew up calling it) on 36th in OKC.
