  1. For simplicity let's look at it like this: UT and OU are going to the SEC period end of story. A&M may not like it but they are one vote. The remaining Big 12 leftovers are going to try their very best to land in a P5 conference. They are all in a disasterous situation but landing in a P5 at least gives them some semblance of hope. Kansas has a great basketball program but their football sucks. Could they be in the Big 10 for hoops sure - they would fit in fine but not in a million years for football. Texas Tech is talking PAC12 but does the PAC12 want their sub par academics? Do Tech fans want to travel out west? Baylor is talking ACC, and the ACC may like an entre into Texas but do Clemson and those types of programs want to travel into Waco? TCU and Baylor may want to be in the PAC 12 with Tech but the PAC 12 in the past has shunned religious programs. Would they make an exception? Iowa State and K-State seem to be on an island as Iowa does not want ISU in the B10. KState is interesting but not sure the B10 is dying to add them. Big 12 could try to get on the offense and add some programs asap to keep alive. Say Houston, UCF, USF Memphis, Cincy, SMU -- all of their top targets would be in the AAC. This is how things look to me now but there are rumblings that the SEC may try to add more like Clemson and FSU... if that happens wow this whole thing could blow up and we would just have one major conference. I tend to doubt that the SEC will go there yet because I think they teeter on monopolistic practices and it would involve a lot of political wrangling but at this point who knows. As is typical for UNT, we have to wait and see what happens with SMU. If SMU were able to convince the Big 12 to take them (don't kid yourself they have money and political power) and the Big 12 was able to survive it could mean that the AAC adds UNT. The problem is what is the AAC after being robbed by the Big 12? Another C-USA?
  2. Now Vessels is likely the most well-known Sooner to wear the No. 35 by virtue of winning the Heisman, but another player who did the number proud was fullback/running back Seth Littrell. Littrell lettered at Oklahoma from 1997 to 2000. While it was tough to find carries when the Muskogee native shared a backfield with studs like De’Mond Parker and Quentin Griffin over the course of his career, Littrell managed to amass 715 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns on 170 carries. He was also a threat as a receiver once the Air Raid arrived in Norman, catching 23 passes for 179 yards and a pair of scores.

  3. DT Charles Walker 6'4" 280 lbs (Garland, TX) - VIDEO Walker is a guy who has been very much under the radar, but has burst onto the scene recently with some very impressive senior film. The Oklahoma scholarship offer only added to the attention as they tend to do. Injuries have been the only reason Walker has not received more attention. When he has been healthy he's been absolutely dominant, which was never more evident than in his senior film. He's a guy that, if he can stay healthy, could be a real diamond in the rough for Oklahoma if they could secure his commitment. Walker discussed possibly committing at the time the Sooners offered and has said if he likes what he sees this weekend he could commit on the spot. Walker currently holds offers from Oklahoma, Houston, Iowa State, New Mexico, and North Texas among others.

  4. Riley’s career as a coach started out rather interesting. As a walk-on freshman quarterback at Texas Tech, Leach called Riley into his office and basically told him he though Riley lacked the talent to be a quarterback at the college level, but believed his knowledge and willingness to study the game would make him a great coach. Leach quickly convinced the young quarterback to move into a student assistant coaching position after that freshman season. By the time Riley was 23 years old, he was being paid as receivers coach for Leach. After Leach was fired, Riley took over play calling duties for the 2010 Alamo Bowl against Michigan State. The Pirates would beat the Spartans 41-31 and Riley’s offense racked up 571 yards of total offense in his first game as a play caller. Perhaps one of the biggest complaints Oklahoma fans had with the offense under Heupel, was the inability to convert on third down. The Sooners were 61st in the country in third down conversion percentage at 40.45%. They were actually worse in 2013 at 39.49%. Meanwhile, East Carolina was one of the best in the country on third down with Riley calling plays. The Pirates were 11th in the country in third down conversion percentage at 47.85% in 2014. ECU was even better in 2013 when Riley had a strong running back in Cooper as a weapon. In 2014, Riley’s offense converted third downs at a rate of 49.16%. If you’re a quarterback or receiver at Oklahoma or considering going to Oklahoma, you have to like the addition of Riley. If you’re a fan of the Sooners, you too should like the addition of Riley and if you are a bit skeptical because of your love of the running game, I would urge you not to buy into the “Leach disciple” label being tagged on Riley. When it’s all said and done, I’d expect the Sooners to definitely have a passing offense, but a more balanced offense than you might expect. read more: http://stormininnorman.com/2015/01/12/oklahoma-football-lincoln-riley-guy/
  5. NORMAN — Following the most disappointing of all his 16 seasons as Oklahoma's head coach, Bob Stoops sensed a great disturbance in the Force. Stoops knew drastic change was needed, especially after a humiliating Russell Athletic Bowl defeat in which the OU offense committed five turnovers and managed just 275 yards and six points. So he sat down to research the most productive offenses in college football and quickly realized that he'd lost his way. While Stoops had been toiling in a mostly unsuccessful experiment with an unfamiliar offense, the system that kickstarted his remarkable run at OU — and helped him win his only national title — had produced seven of the top 13 total offenses in the country in 2014. “It just happens gradually, for whatever reason,” Stoops said. “We gravitated in a little bit of a different direction.” Stoops hired 31-year-old whiz Lincoln Riley to re-install the Air Raid offense, a system famous for shocking life into downtrodden programs. Stoops hopes Riley can do for Oklahoma what Mike Leach — Riley's mentor — did for the Sooners in 1999. It's up to Riley to restore balance to the Force. read more: http://newsok.com/article/5444613
  6. I was on TJ Taylor's twitter feed and ran across this... Play Maker ‏@BeGreat_8 My bro @JordonFinch coming to UNT too. That's also another person to add to the UNT-OU connection. Jordon Finch ‏@JordonFinch @BeGreat_8 yessir I dont know much about him and couldn't find his rivals page. According to OU's roster he was a RS Junior so im not sure how much playing time he would have left. Wondered if anyone else knew about this?
