Happy Tuesday, friends and fans!

Not enough can be said for the late Billy Tubbs. The iconic Oklahoma Sooners men’s basketball coach made a lasting impression on everyone around him. This week, John Rohde compiled personal stories from some notable names around the game.

Among these stories, you’ll hear from Tubbs’ son, Tommy, two former Sooners in Bo Overton and Stacey King, former coach and TV commentator Bill Raftery, and John Underwood, former OU associate AD.

It’s stories like these and the countless others that continue to be shared that will keep Billy Tubbs’ memory alive for generations to come. His impact on college basketball was and continues to be immeasurable.

Now onto today’s Hot Links! A former Sooner inks a sweet NFL deal, OU’s top ‘21 commit talks living in Oklahoma, ‘Big Ben’ is temporarily placed on Pittsburgh’s reserve/COVID list and more!

  • Oklahoma’s defensive line is playing as well as the unit has played in a long while. Guys likes Perrion Winfrey, Isaiah Thomas and Ronnie Perkins are wreaking absolute havoc in opposing backfields, and for the last month, the production has been consistent. Against Kansas, the war daddies up front graded out as the highest D-line in the nation.
  • In case you missed it, check out Kamiar and Stephen break everything down from Oklahoma’s win over KU and more in this week’s CCM Postgame Podcast.
