(by Brittany Bowyer) Out with the old Norvell and in with the new. After offensive coordinator Mike Norvell left Arizona State football’s coaching staff, we began to see a trickle down effect of other coaches leaving to either join him or take on their own position of head coach elsewhere. The most recent loss to Arizona State's coaching staff came when defensive line coach Jackie Shipp announced he would be leaving to take a head coaching job at Missouri...Read more
(by Joe Boozell) After four years in Norman, former Oklahoma wide receiver Sterling Shepard will enter the 2016 NFL Draft. He will certainly be missed by his Sooner teammates. Most notably, he’ll be missed by current Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield. Mayfield and Shepard only...Read more
(by Dennis Dodd) HOUSTON -- Kyle Allen says a frustrating “culture” left over from the Johnny Manziel era is partly to blame for Allen's recent departure from Texas A&M. Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin saw both Allen and Kyler Murray -- two valued quarterback prospects -- transfer within...Read more w/video
(by Connor Tapp) College football players like posting to Instagram pictures that were taken of them during their games. That makes sense because there's no point in being a great athlete if you can't brag about it online. It's considered good form, though, to not tag the opposing player...Read more
(by Joe Buettner) Oklahoma has never shied from scheduling tough nonconference opponents, and 2016 is no different. ESPN's Chris Low ranks next year's slate of Houston, Louisiana-Monroe and Ohio State as the second-toughest nonconference schedule of 2016, and it's only bested by...Read more
(by Joe Buettner) Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant used his night off to watch Oklahoma's drubbing of the TCU Horned Frogs Tuesday evening. The All-Star forward was asked on Friday about his trip to Norman, Okla., to see the No. 1 Sooners at the Lloyd Noble Center. And Durant, who...Read more
OKLAHOMA CITY -- Ty Darlington is going to need a bigger mantel. For the third time in three months, the former Oklahoma football center was bestowed a national honor Tuesday when he received the 2015 Bobby Bowden Award, presented by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, during...Read more
(by Joe Fann) Blake Bell will still admit that he’s still coming into his own as a tight end. Bell just finished his second season at the position after spending a majority of his college years playing quarterback at the University of Oklahoma. The San Francisco 49ers fourth-round pick in 2015...Read more w/video
(by Joe Buettner) Oklahoma receiver Sterling Shepard has enjoyed the past week in Mobile, Ala., in preparation for the 2016 Senior Bowl. The former Sooners receiver will play for the South squad Saturday at 1:30 p.m. on the NFL Network. But as the Senior Bowl practice week comes...Read more
(by Tim Yotter) Ask the cornerbacks on the South Team with the Senior Bowl and one of the first names they mention for tough receivers is Sterling Shepard. The Oklahoma Sooners prospect is only 5-foot-10 and 191 pounds, more of a slot receiver build at the NFL level, and that’s...Read more w/video
(by Ray Dozier) OKLAHOMA CITY --Two years ago, the Oklahoma Sooners were chosen to reach the first College Football Playoffs--ranked fourth in the AP preseason poll and third in the USA Today coaches’ poll. OU finished with an 8-5 record and out of the rankings. The Sooners were picked...Read more
(by John Talty) Eric Striker has never been one to mince his words. The outspoken Oklahoma linebacker has been a quote machine over the years, not afraid to speak his mind. So it wasn't much of a surprise in December when Striker told reporters he didn't want someone who...Read more
(by Joe Buettner) The likes of Sterling Shepard, Eric Striker and Zack Sanchez won't be on Oklahoma's roster in 2016. Replacing Shepard's production at receiver will be a challenge. And finding new leaders on defense will be equally as difficult. OU returns much of its core from its...Read more
(by Tom Fornelli) Oklahoma's depth chart is starting to look a bit thinner at the quarterback position. Trevor Knight recently left Norman to join the Texas A&M Aggies, and now another quarterback is leaving the Sooners, though this one will remain on campus. Cody Thomas...Read more w/video
(by Joe Buettner) Sophomore quarterback Cody Thomas has reportedly decided to focus on baseball full-time this spring, according to Carey Murdock of SoonerScoop.com. Thomas took a break from baseball last spring to focus on Oklahoma's open quarterback competition. But with soon...Read more
(by Marco Knudsen) We're just days removed from the 2016 College Football Playoff National Championship game, and the idea of conference realignment has been embedded into the brains of Big Ten and Oklahoma fans nationwide. It's been a busy past week in the offseason of college football...Read more
(by Pete Fiutak) This is the only real reason not having a Big 12 championship game matters – Oklahoma didn’t get a chance at one extra big win that would’ve raised the Season Score higher. Overall, outside of the loss to Texas, the season was probably even better than the...Read more w/video
(by Master Tesfatsion) Left tackle Trent Williams will not participate in the Pro Bowl because of injury. He was the Washington Redskins’ lone representative in the Pro Bowl, which will take place on Jan. 31 in Hawaii. Williams was replaced by Miami Dolphins left tackle Branden Albert, who...Read more
(by Joe Buettner) Following Oklahoma's first outright Big 12 championship since 2010, Sports Illustrated believes the Sooners are the team-to-beat in 2016. According to Sports Illustrated's Colin Becht, the Sooners rank No. 1 in SI's College Football Way-Too-Early Top 25 poll...Read more
(by Joe Buettner) Coach Bob Stoops is no stranger to putting his program back on track following a mediocre season. Under Stoops, Oklahoma has lost five games in a season only three times and lost four games in a season only once. Oklahoma has followed each of those years...Read more
(by Jordan Greer) Danny Amendola is lucky Saturday's divisional playoff game wasn't being played under NCAA rules, or he would have been ejected. The Patriots wide receiver was penalized for unnecessary roughness after drilling Chiefs defensive back Jamell Fleming on a punt...Read more w/video
(by Bruce Campbell) The Big 12 has the fairest way of deciding a conference champion in football. A round robin schedule where everybody plays everybody else and any tie is broken by the head-to-head matchup. But as we have long learned, life is not fair. University of Oklahoma president...Read more
(by Bob McManaman) This season, azcentral sports NFL writer Bob McManaman spotlights a member of the Cardinals for a series of on-the-spot, off-beat questions. Today: Jermaine Gresham, tight end. Question: You guys are about to start the playoffs. When you signed here, was...Read more
(by Scott Allen) As one of three NFL offensive linemen featured in Gillette’s advertising campaign for its Fusion ProShield razor, Redskins left tackle Trent Williams was given the opportunity to show off his signature "protection-inspired #ShieldMove dance." Williams’s dance, unveiled...Read more w/video
(by Chuck Carlton) That's a big sigh of relief you're hearing from the Big 12. The conference was able to win a key legislative compromise Wednesday at the NCAA convention that would allow it to hold a football title game with 10 members since it plays a round-robin schedule...Read more
