Happy Tuesday, everyone!
Less than a month until we’re back to college football. We’re almost there. Almost!
- Freshman OL Creed Humphrey has been taking reps with the first-stringers at center. While this doesn’t mean he’ll be getting the start come opening day, it is interesting to see the freshman mixed with the veteran offensive line. This is something to keep an eye on this in the next few weeks. Humphrey is talented and bright enough to play right off the bat, but it’s tough to see him unseating returning senior starter Erick Wren.
- With former walk-on Nick Basquine going down for the season, current walk-on Lee Morris might be a bigger piece to the puzzle than anyone would have thought, according to TulsaWorld. Morris also has a history with Kyler Murray, which is something that could be quite noteable in the future.
- The Red River Rivalry doesn’t look like it’ll run dry any time soon, says Gerry Hamilton:
- The Sooners’ first lady told herself she never wanted to go back to a game in Norman. That was in 2008. Now in 2017, she’s the mom of the team and is loving life. Times have changed.
- Former Oklahoma Sooners running back Samaje Perine has been nothing but impressive in Redskins camp according to head coach Jay Gruden. Yes, Kirk Cousins, we do like that.
- A list of the Top 25 games of the 2000’s came out yesterday, and...well...you might not want to see No. 1.
- The Clinton Lumberkings’ Nick Zammarelli fouled a ball off that resulted in hitting him in the helmet. As someone who once gave up a home run to Zammarelli, I like to think this is karma.
- Remember Johnny Manziel? Of course you do. Apparently he wants to coach college football. I have my fingers crossed that this actually happens.
- If you’re into Bill Simmons’ ‘The Ringer’, then you’ll be delighted to hear that they have joined Vox Media. We certainly are!
“STICK TO SPORTS”
- I don’t follow ‘The Bachelorette’ (sorry ladies), but Twitter was in a huff about the finale last night. So was Charlotte Wilder, who wrote a response to the season finale here.
- The horror movie ‘IT’ returns to theaters - bringing to light a very eerie theory about the clown demon.
- David Letterman, who is almost unrecognizable now, is returning to television. His return will come in 2018, on Netflix.
