NCAA Football: Texas at Oklahoma Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Oklahoma safety Will Sunderland was suspended indefinitely yesterday. We knew then that the punishment stemmed from an arrest warrant issued on June 15th on a charge of concealing stolen property.

According to an affidavit, Sunderland sold an Xbox One and a Playstation 4 (along with games and controllers) to an electronics store in Oklahoma City. The junior out of Midwest City admitted to knowing the property was stolen when he sold it for just under $500.

The Oklahoman’s Brooke Pryor had the scoop:

Lincoln Riley has checked a lot of boxes in his short tenure at the helm, but this is the first trouble to crop up since Bob Stoops retired nearly two weeks ago.

Riley swiftly handed down the punishment ahead of the news breaking. It’s safe to say that Sunderland’s status against Ohio State is up in the air.

Sunderland’s father took to Twitter to express support:

While we don’t know all of the details, this is (to say the least) not a good look for the safety who looked to be a starter at a position of relative weakness for the Sooners.

Without further ado, today’s edition of Hot Links:
