Hello once again, friends and fans. It’s basically a wintery mess out there if you live anywhere around central Oklahoma, so stay warm and off the roads if you can. As far as what’s happening with the Oklahoma Sooners on the sports front, the women’s basketball team won its Senior Night game against Iowa State and the softball team is gearing up for much nicer weather in Palm Springs, California for the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic.

But back to the Winter Olympics, I mean the Oklahoma weather. When everything is frozen over, covered in sheets of ice, there is but one thing to do: Boomer Sooner.

It’s amazing what people will do with enough time to kill and the right opportunity. Don’t try that at home, folks, but it’s still very cool because Oklahoma.

Now onto the Cold Hot Links, where Orlando Brown could follow in his father’s large footsteps and become a Baltimore Raven, Trae Young is still projected as a top five player if he chooses to declare for the NBA, and Maddie Manning is finally able to take part in Senior Night after waiting for years on the road to recovery.

OU Links

  • Orlando Brown is poised for a first-round selection in the upcoming NFL Draft. Beyond that, the Baltimore Ravens could be the team that picks him up. What’s special about that is that the Ravens are a team Brown’s father once played for. Being in the same locker room his father once claimed as his own would be a tremendous honor for Orlando.
  • What this group of receivers has done for Lincoln Riley’s offense is amazing. More than that, Riley’s offense allowed each one of these players to shine when it was their time. If you’re a big time, up-and-coming receiver, take notice. At Oklahoma, you’ll have every opportunity to make a name for yourself.
  • Like Coach Riley, Bill Bedenbaugh has been at the forefront of one of the best and most consistent units in all of college football. Bedenbaugh will probably never receive the amount of credit he deserves for the players he recruits and the way he develops them, but numbers like these certainly speak to his value as a coach.
  • It’ll be a couple of late contests as the Sooners’ softball squad travels west to take on Arizona State in a non-conference matchup and Team Japan in an exhibition game. Check out the link below for all the details on how you can catch the action! You won’t want to miss it.

Around the Sports World

  • The USA Women’s Hockey team defeated Canada in a 3-2 shootout for the Gold Medal! That’s payback for how things ended in Sochi, back in the 2014 Winter Olympics. Here’s how it all went down. U-S-A!

  • Netflix is rebooting the 1960’s hit television series Lost in Space. I never saw the original show, but growing up I heard a lot about it from some of my older family members. I’m definitely interested in seeing this after watching this trailer.
