(by Bryan Fischer) NORMAN, Okla. -- In a season where so many games seem to come down to one play, one coin-flip, one stop, whatever thin group of title contenders there is have to continually find a way to be on the right side of those 50/50 moments when the game...Read more

(by Joe Starkey) You weren't the only one who wondered as recently as, oh, 40 days ago whether Landry Jones could play in the NFL. Jones wondered, too. "You go through different situations of doubting yourself and whether you can actually go out and play," Jones said...Read more
(by Bruce Campbell) What if Oklahoma had beaten Texas at the Cotton Bowl on Oct. 10 instead of leaving with a shocking 24-17 loss to the now 4-6 Longhorns? An 9-0 Sooner team, coming off a 44-34 win over Baylor, would have had a legitimate argument for being No. 1...Read more
