Happy Friday, friends and fans!

What happens when creativity meets football greatness? Well, when you combine those two things with a lot of free time, you get a masterpiece like this! One young OU fan built a sweet BRXLZ model of the Oklahoma Sooners’ Gaylord Family Memorial Stadium. Check out the construction process from the ground up for yourself:

Watching that was a great way to kick off the month of May. Football season in the Sooner State hopefully makes its return in the next four months, and I for one can hardly wait to see this scaled-down stadium in all of its full-sized glory (even if it’s without fans) come September. Boomer!

Now onto this week’s Friday edition of Hot Links! AD picks his favorite run, GK talks dad-life, Miami’s UD gives back and more!

OU Links

  • It’s official. Dallas Cowboys rookie WR CeeDee Lamb will wear the legendary No. 88, following in the footsteps of past greats like Drew Pearson, Michael Irvin and Dez Bryant. It’s a lot to live up to, but the first-round draft pick is more than ready for the challenge.
  • Speaking of Lamb, Irvin actually stepped forward on ESPN’s First Take in defense of the Cowboys giving the rookie receiver the iconic jersey number. Irvin also believes Lamb has everything it takes to become the next big thing on the outside in Dallas.
  • Gerald McCoy recently penned another installment for The Players’ Tribune, this time talking about life during the quarantine and how he’s used this moment as an opportunity to grow closer with his family.
  • Six Sooner softball players received Academic All-Big 12 honors for their accomplishments in the classroom. Congratulations to Nicole Mendes, Lynnsie Elam, Kinsey Koeltzow, Grace Lyons, Brooke Vestal and Shannon Saile!
