But erasing last year’s travesty, a fan of the Boomer Sooner...

Oklahoma Football: 5 Biggest Questions Heading Into 2015

To say the University of Oklahoma had a rough season in 2014, would be an understatement. In fact, OU was looking at rough in the rear-view mirror. The Sooners had a season that left them with lots of questions and a “back to the drawing board” mentality. While OU was heavily ranked and favored at the start of last season, issues began to take hold leaving OU football in the...

He's been manipulated and fidgeted with. Poked and prodded. No one has gone through more, who...
