University of Oklahoma channels 1998 for promotional video

((dr.saturday/yahoo)) Hey, Oklahoma, Eminem circa 1998 called, they want their look back. We came across this video on the Yahoo/Dr.Saturday college football website and feel compelled to share it.

Alarming questions raised in Texas blowout

DALLAS The pass was short, just a dump off by Oklahoma's Landry Jones. Two Texas defenders had it mostly sniffed out. They were there for the tackle. It never happened. Sooners running back Millard hurdled one Longhorns defender and easily shook off an arm tackle by another, bouncing off the rest and finally going down 73 yards later. And a couple of plays later, Blake Bell just...
