Hey Barry Switzer, get in line. The legendary Oklahoma Sooners coach became the latest in a long line of football royalty to blast Johnny Manziel for his behavior on the field. During a radio interview with ESPN’s Colin Cowherd on Wednesday, Switzer said that he couldn’t believe the Heisman Trophy winner’s behavior during the Rice […]

Sooners impressed with QB Trevor Knight

NORMAN, Okla. -- Maybe one of the reasons Bob Stoops and the Oklahoma staff were so mum about who would be quarterback at Oklahoma was because the Sooners were doing more than figuring out who the quarterback would be. According to Dean Blevins of KWTV in Oklahoma City, Stoops brought in former Nevada coach Chris Ault to learn the Pistol offense the offense that Collin Kaepernick...

Knight earning respect of Oklahoma teammates

That's not who he is. Trevor Knight's not a guy who completes a third of his 21 passes for two yards an attempt. That's what he did in the first half of his collegiate debut on Saturday in a 34-0, but it's easy to believe that's not the same quarterback Bob Stoops named his starter before the season. Quarterbacks who do that don't beat out older players like...

Colin Cowherd's new football show looks really weird

One of ESPN's most controversial voices will have a new outlet to vent his unique but oft-criticized views when Colin Cowherd's new Sunday morning football show premieres this weekend.  Cowherd's show, which is quite literally being called "Colin's New Football Show" (what will they call it when it's no longer new?), will air Sundays at 9 a.m. ET...

Former coach appears on UNLV billboard

In April 2011, Lon Kruger left UNLV after seven seasons at the helm of the basketball program -- but if one ticket-sales billboard outside Las Vegas is to be believed, the current Oklahoma Sooners head man is still in Sin City. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal , the advertisement below could be seen Wednesday overlooking Interstate 215: That guy with the whistle? That...

LB Nelson back as Sooners' anchor on defense

(Eds: APNewsNow.) By MURRAY EVANS Associated Press As Oklahoma's defense fell apart late last season, linebacker Corey Nelson often felt like a man without a position. Starting with a late-season game against West Virginia, the Sooners often left their linebackers on the sideline and played seven defensive backs in an attempt to slow down the up-tempo offenses they were facing...

Colin Cowherd’s New Sunday Football Show Sounds So Edgy And Unique, You Guys

(via Getty Image) On Sunday morning, as most of us will be waking up from our fetal positions in front of the porcelain reminder that we’re not in college anymore, others of you more responsible people, or “adults,” will be tuning into ESPN and the NFL Network for extensive NFL pre-pre-game coverage to determine how bad your fantasy teams are going to suck. Fortunately, because...

An Interview With Colin Cowherd About His Latest Project, ‘Colin’s New Football Show’

A couple of weeks ago, I attended ESPN’s Media Day in Bristol, CT, to tour the facility and to meet the personnel and anchors of the “mothership”. To my surprise, I was asked if I wanted to come in a few minutes early for a Q&A session with Colin Cowherd, the controversial yet popular radio […]The post An Interview With Colin Cowherd About His Latest Project, ‘Colin’s...

OU Preview: Prelude To An Upset

These aren’t your usual Oklahoma Sooners. They might, in fact, seem to harken back to the days of yore, a run-heavy offense designed to overwhelm foes with physicality, then mix in a dose of skill.

Switzer wanted to grab Manziel 'and jerk his face mask'

Last month, former Oklahoma coach Barry Switzer said Johnny Manziel was the only white quarterback he would have recruited to run the option. Wednesday on ESPN radio, during the Colin Cowherd show, Switzer shared even more about he thinks of the Heisman winning quarterback from Texas A&M. "I'm certainly disappointed in his actions," Switzer said, noting the way...
