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...

Nine Big 12 names to watch at the NFL Combine

The draft combine is an annual, graceless exercise, where players shed their shirts to have their bodies receiver official measurements before donning far-too-tight shorts to run 40 yards and a few drills in front of 60,000 empty seats. I do not envy the poor souls headed to Indianapolis this week.  The combine silliness everyone around football is far too adept at ignoring aside...

Bedlam lacking this season, but Sooners-Cowboys rivalry still thrives

When it comes to Bedlam excitement, Saturday's game is lacking. You've got a below-average Oklahoma State team taking on an underachieving Oklahoma team. But here we are. There may not be the national intrigue like there has been the past two seasons. There isn't a major bowl game invite extended to the winner, either. There's just football. Excited? Well, here are 35 guesses to...

'Belldozer' deserves standing ovation in Oklahoma finale

NORMAN, Okla. - Maybe Blake Bell was never the quarterback he should have been. He probably wasn't as good as you thought he'd be, but when Bell wraps up his regular-season career with a home game against Oklahoma State Saturday, Bell should get the loudest of applause from the home fans. He's been manipulated and fidgeted with. Poked and prodded. No one has gone through more, who...
