Big 12 Big Picture: The Centrality Of Schedule Rotations

The schedule — it’s a variable which constantly plays a part in shaping college football seasons. In the heyday of their rivalry, Miami played Florida State in the middle of October instead of late November. The Hurricanes clearly benefited from facing the Seminoles when they were still rounding into form. The schedule mattered in a similar way when the 2001 Tennessee-Florida...

Oklahoma Football: Schedule Analysis and Predictions Weeks 5-9

Oklahoma Football Mascot Last week I wrote about the Oklahoma football team’s first four games and broke them down by matchups and what might occur during the games. I then predicted the scoring outcome and resulted in the team winning their first four games. For the next four weeks the schedule gets a little tougher as they will face teams they have struggled with in the past...

Three OU freshmen -- including a kicker? -- poised for bright future

Seldom does a conversation about a football team becoming much-improved from one season to the next involve the kicker.But in the case of the Oklahoma Sooners, maybe it should.Look, Bob Stoops probably still can't explain what in the world happened to the once-infallible Michael Hunnicutt last season. Perhaps the only explanation is to borrow from golf's psychiatric guide. Yep, he...

Sooners, Bears matchup has unfamiliar feel

NORMAN, Okla. - Saturday against Baylor in Norman was supposed to be for the Big 12 championship. Remember when we all thought that? Seems like a lifetime ago, or maybe it was the August temperatures clouded our judgement. Instead of OU and Baylor, it's Kansas State and TCU facing off for the Big 12 lead. Instead of the Sooners and the Bears, there's West Virginia in the way. Instead...

No. 19 Oklahoma travels to Iowa State

AMES, Iowa (AP) Saturday's matchup with Iowa State could be considered a classic trap game for Oklahoma. Then again, the Sooners never seem to have a problem pounding the Cyclones. No. 19 Oklahoma (5-2, 2-2 Big 12) has dropped two of its last three to fall out of playoff contention. The Sooners still have an outside shot at a share of the Big 12 title, though, and they'd be forgiven...

No. 19 Sooners look to bounce back vs. Iowa State

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Oklahoma has had an excruciating extra week to stew over the disappointment of the one-point loss to Kansas State that likely dashed its hopes at making the playoff. The normally sure-footed Michael Hunnicutt missed two short field goals and had an extra point blocked in the 31-30 loss to the Wildcats. As fate would have it, the stunning defeat came before a bye...

Inside the Big 12's five game-winning kicks of 2014

Every time 120 minutes of soccer are followed by five fluky penalty kicks to decide the game, a parade of Americans are ripe to complain about the nonsensical tiebreaker. However, we seem totally fine when 300-pound men slam into each other for 59 minutes, only to step aside while the right leg of a 5-foot-9, 185-pound kicker decides the victor. In just eight weeks, four Big 12 teams...

Sooners' Hunnicutt moving forward after 'worst moments of my life'

NORMAN, Okla. - Michael Hunnicutt locked his fingers inside the V at the front of his shoulder pads. His knuckles on both hands faced each other, resting, or maybe it was protecting, just above his heart. His eyes glistened and flickered. Hunnicutt looked like he might cry. He never did, but crying seemed more likely from Hunnicutt than a missed field goal ever did. That was, until...

The best and worst of the Big 12: Week 8

Let's hand out the hardware for Week 8 in the Big 12. Best offensive performance: Trevone Boykin, QB, TCU. The Frogs quarterback continues to direct TCU's offensive revolution.

Sooners' Hunnicutt suffers agony of da feet on record-setting day

The day started out splendidly for Oklahoma redshirt senior kicker Michael Hunnicutt. After becoming the all-time leading scorer in Sooner history during No. 11 Oklahoma's Big 12 battle vs. No. 14 Kansas State, he could not have seen how sour it was going to turn out. You can't blame one player for a defeat. Any coach will tell you that. However, Hunnicutt has to be taking Saturday...

WATCH: Oklahoma loses game on 19-yard FG shank

At the moment, Michael Hunnicutt is not a popular player among Oklahoma football fans. The Sooners’ kicker is quite hated, actually.  Oklahoma fell to Kansas State in Norman, Okla. this afternoon. Bill Snyder’s squad beat Bob Stoops’ team, 31-30.  The Sooners likely would have been victorious if not for a missed kick by Hunnicutt. With 3:53 remaining and his team trailing...

Oklahoma Kicker Michael Hunnicutt Shares His Incredibly Simple Playbook (Photo)

University of Oklahoma kicker Michael Hunnicutt has no excuses for not memorizing his playbook this season. The Sooners received iPads on Wednesday, which came loaded with the team’s playbooks on them, but some were more complex than others. While Hunnicutt’s teammates likely have some long days and nights of studying ahead of them, the kicker’s instructions were easy — very...
