Happy Monday, friends and fans! It’s game week! Okay, it’s not an actual game, of course, but the Oklahoma Sooners’ Spring Game is this Saturday. There’s been a tremendous build-up leading up to this one, so I’d strongly advise not missing out if you can help it.

Among all the unique draws for this year’s game, Bob Stoops’ statue is expected to be unveiled for the first time... officially. Now, do you remember the debacle that ensued when Stoops’ statue was standing in plain sight on a flat-bed truck? If you need a refresher, check out this oral history of one of the more bizarre moments in OU football lore.

Now for today’s Hot Links! Oklahoma baseball keeps rising in the polls, the Sooners’ social media game has impacted recruiting in a big way, Mike Stoops says Tre Norwood reminds him of Aaron Colvin and more!

OU Links

  • Unsurprisingly, Oklahoma was well represented at the Under Armour football camp in Dallas this past weekend. Sooner commits Austin Stogner (class of 2019 TE), Drew Sanders (‘20 ATH) and Jase McClellan (‘20 RB) were all on the scene, as well as Theo Wease Jr., who most recruiting analysts believe to be a heavy Oklahoma lean at this point. SB Nation’s Alex Kirshner had the following to say about Wease, who will be in Norman for the spring game this coming weekend: “Wease is currently a Composite four-star, but he looks like a five-star to me. He’s a precise route runner and has a really sticky pair of hands. He regularly cooked a pretty talented crop of defensive backs, though he missed out on some long catches because of under-thrown balls by the quarterbacks at the camp.” Also of note is that Sanders, who likely projects as a TE at OU, was supposedly lighting it up as a QB.
  • It’s a big week for Sooner Baseball. After a couple non-conference matchups, the Texas Longhorns are coming to town over the weekend. The Saturday game could make for a nice full day of Sooner action if you’re already planning on attending the Spring Game earlier in the day. Tickets are still available, so reserve your spot now!

  • Ronda Rousey made her official in-ring debut at WrestleMania 34, and by all accounts she stole the show. Looks like she has a bright future in the WWE.

  • The scientific team at Disney is trotting out a Pandora Utility Suit at Disney’s World of Avatar. The mechanized suit is solo-piloted, and will traverse the grounds of the film-based theme park. It’s a pretty neat addition that will garner a heap of attention and patron engagement.
