A football life of luxury awaits.

The Sooners currently call trailers similar to these home while OU renovates Memorial Stadium and specifically the locker rooms.

An inconvenience for now, but a bright future ahead.

“It's nice for the guys that will be coming in next year,” Baker Mayfield, OU junior quarterback said.  “Knowing they'll have just one summer to go through that.  It's tough on us right now, but we'll get used to it.

The game will be a little bit different having to walk across the street for our locker room at halftime, so that will be unusual, but we're fine with it.”

Dahu Green lit up local Friday night lights at Westmoore high school, and has carried that over to his young Sooner career, making an immediate impact in OU's new offense.

“Physical presence,” Bob Stoops, OU head coach, said.  “He can go up and get the ball over people.  Block people out.  Position himself to get the ball.  He's got such a big frame, he's got really good hands and he's worked out really well.”

One of the chief recruiters of Dahu Green was Lincoln Riley, who came to OU from East Carolina in the offseason.

Now as all of you know, anytime you start a new job there are some adjustments that come along the way, but according to Riley his new boss has made his adjustment go about as smooth as possible.

“I don't know that anything's been hard,” Riley said.  “With the way coach Stoops has this deal set up it makes it really good for new players and new coaches coming in here.  And I think that's why you've seen new coaches and new players have a lot of success early throughout the years here.  The whole program is set up to where it's pretty smooth.  So, I know there will be ups and downs through that but it's nothing that I would complain about or be disappointed with right now.”
