Check Out The New Sooner Athletic Team Footwear For 2013

Here are some great pics of some of the new athletic footwear the football team and coaches will be wearing this Fall.  OU sure seems happy to flash the Nike logo.  Alright Sooner Nation…you all can breathe a sigh of relief, as they are not going to be wearing chrome metallic helmets or pastels colored jerseys.  The Sooners are sticking to traditional garb with an occasional...

And if Bob Stoops told you to go jump off a bridge, Twitter recruiter?

The #SUMMEROFSTOOPS has seen some surprising twists and turns coming from Oklahoma's head coach. The latest probably represents the strangest. Bob Stoops is asking you, Sooner Nation, to help him recruit. At least, I think that's what he's asking. Stoops gave a cagey answer to Carey Murdock of SoonerScoop.com when asked at Big 12 Media Days about the skin-crawling...

Mary Kay and media day works well for OU coach

DALLAS -- Having the Big 12 Media Days and the Mary Kay national convention at the same hotel might seem like an odd pairing. Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops doesn't see it that way. While Stoops was participating in the media days, his wife Carol is a national sales director for Mary Kay. Both were working Tuesday. "She comes down Friday and her seminar starts I think...

Big 12 Media Days: Stoops speaks, says nothing

"That is probably the dumbest question I've ever been asked, Chip." (Photo courtesy: Yahoo! Sports) OK, so it's not like Bob Stoops said nothing today during his opening session at Big 12 Media Days. However, in an offseason in which Stoops has had plenty to say about seemingly everything pertinent in college football, Oklahoma's coach offered precious little...

Blake Bell Brings A Undeniable Spark To The Sooners National Title Hopes

 Sooner quarterback derby is set to become a full-blown competition that will put the winner in charge of a high-octane offense that is incorporating the zone read into its offensive mix and the expectations are very high. Many think it is Blake Bell’s job to lose. He has been a short-yardage touchdown scoring machine over the last two years and looked great during the Spring...

Oklahoma hoping to exceed expectations in 2013

DALLAS -- Bob Stoops was quick to correct a reporter who presumed that Blake Bell would be Oklahoma's starting quarterback in 2013. "You're kind of making assumptions if you think he's the guy right now," the Sooners' coach said Tuesday at Big 12 Media Days. So if assumptions are off the table, then logic follows that it's not wise to assume Oklahoma...

Report: Mack Brown says college players need to be paid

Mack Brown is the head coach of arguably the most powerful program in college football. So when it comes to the debate if players should be paid, the face of the Texas Longhorns says yes, according to ESPN Sports Business Reporter & ABC News Business Correspondent Darren Rovell. Texas coach Mack Brown: I do think players need to be paid. These players are killing themselves...

Baylor's new all gold helmet steals show at media day

DALLAS -- Baylor head coach Art Briles may have said some good things about the Bears at the Big 12 Media Days, but unfortunately for him, their new dazzling, all-gold chrome helmet stole the show. Before Day 2 of the media days press conferences began the normal Baylor football helmet was on the platform along with the other schools featured on Tuesday. Minutes before Oklahoma...

Will OU Contend For A Football Title In 2013? Four Keys To Watch For

The Oklahoma Sooners head into the 2013 season in an unusual position, one of the underdog.  The vast majority of polls and prognosticators have someone others than the Sooners on top in the Big12 this season.  For many in the Sooner Nation this is seen as a good thing, as Bob Stoops led teams have exceeded expectations from the underdog role.  The 2000 season being the pinnacle...

Regardless of what's being said, Bell will be QB for Sooners

So, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops was quick to point out no one should be assuming Blake Bell will be the next quarterback for the Sooners. Meanwhile, center Gabe Ikard tweeted out he was tired of all the quarterback questions. OK, so we can't assume it's Bell and we can't ask who it's going to be, so what are we supposed to do? Don't worry. Here's your quick...

Is the Big 12 really that "deep?"

That's deep. (Photo courtesy: USA Today Sports) “Depth.” I imagine when Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby circulated his conference-mandated talking points e-mail to the league’s coaches before this week’s media days, he put the word in boldface font. He probably underlined it a few times. I bet exclamation points were involved. One by one, as the league’s coaches...

Longhorns, Sooners no longer have stronghold on Big 12

When the Big 12 preseason media poll was released last week, there appeared to be a misprint. For years, either Texas or Oklahoma was picked to win the conference. Even as the Longhorns wandered in the quarterback wilderness after the Garrett Gilbert debacle, they still were regarded as a formidable team in the Big 12. But Texas showed up at No. 4 in the recent poll, while last...
