Good afternoon, Sooner Nation! I hope everybody in and around Norman is enjoying the drop in temperature outside. Also, I have yet to formally introduce myself to the Crimson & Cream Machine community, so hello hello. My name is Seth Oliveras, but my friends call me Seth, for short. I’m a recent OU graduate, I love our Sooners, and I hope to keep y’all entertained during this last stretch of the off-season as we approach the opener against UTEP!
Now for what you originally came here for, the Hot Links:
- Looks like the legend himself is back in the house.
- In some not-so-hot news, former OU wide receiver Sterling Shepard was carted off the field during the NY Giants practice with an apparent ankle injury, but early reports are optimistic.
Initial hope is Sterling Shepard suffered a bad ankle roll/sprain as @mikegarafolo reported. Seems to be optimism despite being carted off.— Jordan Raanan (@JordanRaanan) August 2, 2017
#Giants coach Ben McAdoo confirms to reporters that WR Sterling Shepard "rolled his ankle" Like a basketball-type injury.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 2, 2017
- Former OU QB and current Pittsburgh Steelers Landry Jones may be injured as well.
- The offseason can be fun, take for example this Twitter exchange between Texas A&M commit Leon O’Neal Jr. and OU defensive tackle Du’Vonta Lampkin. Heh, facts.

- Very inspiring story about a former QB on his quest to lose weight and become healthy. I’m rooting for him.
