NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-First Round-Oklahoma Sooners vs Rhode Island Rams Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

How’s it going, friends and fans? Do you like Baker Mayfield? Do you like quirky novelty items such as bobbleheads? If you said yes to either of those questions, then I’ve got some fantastic news for you! The National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum is selling a Baker Mayfield Draft Day bobblehead. I won’t be surprised to see this sell out at light speed, but try to purchase one for yourself if you can. He is the G.O.A.T. after all.

Now check out what’s in store for you in the Hot Links below. Oklahoma Basketball will clash against Notre Dame in the Big Apple this December, the get-in price for the Sooners’ Super Regional ticket costs more than the football season opener’s, James Harden posterizes Draymond Green and more!

OU Links

  • Oklahoma and Notre Dame will meet again, this time on the hardwood of Madison Square Garden as part of the 2018 Jimmie V Classic. Sign me up for more Sooners and Fighting Irish sports battles.
  • With the draft less than a month away, Trae Young is starting to live the luxurious life as a budding NBA player. Lon Kruger is also making a bit of a transition. Kruger is getting back to his roots, and back to what makes his system work.
  • It’s actually more expensive to check out the Sooner Softball team this weekend than it will be to watch the football season opener against Florida Atlantic. That’s just all kinds of awesome.
  • Congratulations to Oklahoma’s Jocelyn Alo for being named one of three finalists for the 2018 NFCA Freshman of the Year! Alo leads the nation in home runs with 26.

Around the Sports World

  • The Houston Rockets defeated the Golden State Warriors to tie the series at two games apiece, and one of the highlights from last night’s game was this complete annihilation of Draymond Green. James Harden, you win all the points, my dude.

  • Gracenote, a Nielsen-owned media data specialist, is using artificial intelligence to better identify and group music based on its style rather than simply the artist. The plan is to create more playlists that have less outliers, since some artists go through stages where they sound completely different from themselves. I think this is a great idea, and the AI technology of today makes it possible.
