Oklahoma fans wanted Landry Jones benched

College football fans are the best, aren’t they? Our friend Jerod Morris of Midwest Sports Fans is doing a four-week college football road trip sponsored by La Quinta (which is sponsoring this post), and his first stop was in Norman last weekend to watch Oklahoma lose to Kansas State. In his recap of the game, (and he has plenty of cool pics and videos for you to check out),...

Kansas State 24, Oklahoma 19

Coming into Saturday night's match-up with the Kansas State Wildcats, it had all the makings of a game that Oklahoma typically dominates. This is not a typical Oklahoma team. Kansas State's 24-19 upset win marked Bob Stoops' first home loss to a ranked team. Prior to the game, OU was 16-4 coming off of a bye under Stoops. The Sooners had lost to Kansas State...

College football road trip week one recap

The first leg in my four-week college football road trip sponsored by La Quinta featured a lot of history. Unfortunately for the 2012 Oklahoma Sooners and their fans, the history that was made on Saturday night was of the ignominious kind as the 6th-ranked Sooners lost 24-19 to the 15th-ranked Kansas State Wildcats. How rare was Oklahoma’s whimper of a performance in front of...

Oklahoma Sooners: Should Landry Jones be benched?

After the Oklahoma Sooners’ 24-19 defeat to Kansas State on Saturday, I got to briefly revel in the awesomeness that is Collin Klein before finding myself in the position of defending OU quarterback Landry Jones. Midwest Sports Fans’ Jerod Morris took himself a road trip to Norman to watch the game and mentioned how some OU fans were calling for four-year starting senior Jones...

Time for Sooners to make serious changes

Now is the time for Bob Stoops to earn his multi-million dollar salary. The 14-year head football coach is already on the hot seat with the fans who are growing weary of unimpressive performances. He needs to make some serious changes to his squad. OU has gone 32-11 (.744) since 2009, and the Sooners 4-3 in the last seven games. That’s quite a drop from Stoops...

Sooners look to regroup after loss to K-State

Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones thinks the Sooners are still in the national championship race, although he acknowledges he'll have to play better for them to have a chance. Jones has accepted most of the blame for No. 16 Oklahoma's 24-19 home loss to Kansas State on Saturday, after he fumbled to give the Wildcats one touchdown and threw a momentum-killing interception...

Oklahoma can't solve Kansas State riddle, falls to Wildcats

Vintage Kansas State.  That's exactly what Oklahoma got on Saturday night in the Wildcats 24-19 win over the Sooners. Kansas State makes a living off of not making mistakes, executing their plan, and pouncing when their opponent shoots themselves in the foot.  Oklahoma obliged by turning the ball over three times in crucial situations while Kansas State - you guessed it - didn...

Enjoy Lil Joe Robinson taking this punt to the house to cap off a perfect 1974 season for one of...

Defensive weekly Q&A: FS Tony Jefferson

NORMAN, Okla. — Free safety Tony Jefferson bounced back from a high-ankle sprain with a 14-tackle performance the other night against Kansas State, but the Sooners still lost despite that.

K-State shakes up Big 12, jumps to No. 7

With just two conference games in the books, the pecking order in the Big 12 has been shaken up. Kansas State's 24-19 upset of preseason Big 12 favorite Oklahoma on Saturday night vaulted the Wildcats (4-0, 1-0) ahead as one of the league's new front-runners for the championship.
