Happy Monday, Sooner fans!

Props need to be given to ESPN’s Jake Trotter for writing one of the best things I’ve read in a long time. Jake profiles the final days of Bob Stoops’ tenure as head coach of the Oklahoma Sooners, and it damn near brought a tear to my eye. Fair warning: it’s long, but it’s definitely worth your time.

OU Links

  • After hearing what Mike Stoops had to say about Caleb Kelly’s role on the defense, Carey Murdock wrote about how it’s definitely a good thing.
  • When Ruffin McNeill took over as the DT coach earlier this summer, some wondered how it would impact the chemistry on the defensive line. The Oklahoman’s Brooke Pryor writes about that very subject.
  • The updated Rivals100 rankings have been released, and multiple OU commits and targets are featured. Spencer Rattler and Austin Stogner come in at 56 and 94, respectively. OU WR target (and former commit) Theo Wease is the No. 6 overall player on the list, and IMG running back Noah Cain is ranked 17th.
  • At Big 12 Media Days, Lincoln Riley mentioned that he wants to earn the respect his team as opposed to just expecting it. Well, according to John Rohde, it seems like it’s happening.
