ARLINGTON, Texas — Sooners Illustrated met up with defensive end David King at media day Sunday to talk about the physical OTs they'll be facing.
Not long ago, Saturday night's meeting between Oklahoma and West Virginia seemed destined to be one pitting highly ranked Big 12 teams seeking a prestigious bowl bid.
While the 13th-ranked Sooners maintain slim hopes of reaching that goal, the host Mountaineers simply are hoping to become bowl-eligible.
Oklahoma (7-2, 5-1) was ranked No. 8 heading into its home matchup with...

Still no new verbals. OU had an interesting month of October with a big win over Texas Tech and dominating performance in Dallas that was witnessed by a host of top Texas 2013 recruits and perhaps an even larger number of 2014 Texas kids. It was easily the best list of recruits OU has ever gotten to Dallas to see OU smash the Horns. Then OU arranged a second grouping of recruits...
NORMAN, Okla. - Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said he's going to be teaching some history this week to his players.
Just a bit, though. Not too much.
"These kids are 18, 19, 20, 21, 22," Stoops said. "I can try to engage them all I want on what happened way back when. I don't think it matters."
He's right. It doesn't. "Remember when,"...
NORMAN, Okla. — Sooners Illustrated caught up with defensive end David King to get his thoughts on a devastating loss and more.
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) A packed house was rocking and the game hadn't even started yet when Kansas State and Oklahoma players had to be separated and steered toward their own sideline. Once the Sooners took control in a clash of top 15 teams, the K-State fans started booing and stuff came flying out of the stands.
The Big 12 rivals meet again Saturday, again with high stakes, but...
Fall camp and start of the season have probably changed the focus in some positions. Recruiting is not static and scholarship numbers can change as OU decides who to redshirt and who to play. The defensive end position, for instance, has seen a number of changes this fall with Nathan Hughes moving to OT, Geneo Grissom moving to TE and OU not redshirting Michael Onuoha and Charles...
King a DT for a day? A week? A year?
Go back and watch highlights of the defense from the early years in Bob Stoops' tenure. Those were some downright nasty defensive lines he and his brother Mike had.Oklahoma's recruiting on the defensive line in the last five years hasn't exactly set the world on fire. The Sooners have signed some solid players in that...
NORMAN, Okla. — Sooners Illustrated presents a Q&A with defensive end David King, inquiring about replacing the two great former defensive ends, Frank Alexander and Ronnell Lewis, the youngsters that have impressed him and more.
When just about any season starts at Oklahoma, the focus centers on whether a national championship is in the team's future.
It started even earlier this year, with linebacker Travis Lewis declaring in January that he would not enter the NFL draft because of the opportunity to win it all this season.
With that lofty goal no longer reachable, it's time for the Sooners (8...
