  • Gundy Breaking in New OC While Trying to Find QB

    Mike Gundy is a busy man this spring. He’s trying to break in a new offensive coordinator while he also tries to find his next quarterback. Gundy mentioned after practice that when Gleeson started calling plays in practice during the team portion, that everything went well. Although he did add that Gleeson does things differently than Mike Yurcich. But one of his favorite things about his new hire is that he’s a worker. Gundy said he was at the office […]

  • Thunder Get back on Track Against Pacers

    Coming off of their worst loss of the season, OKC hit the floor looking for a bit of retribution against the Indiana Pacers. The Pacers stormed back from a double digit deficit to top OKC earlier this month. The Thunder looked early like that wasn’t going to be a thing. Russell Westbrook made a concerted effort to get his teammates involved. And much like other opponents, they forced the Thunder to shoot three pointers. It worked wonderfully for the Pacers. […]

  • Jalen Hurts Meets the Media For First Time as A Sooner

    For the first time since joining the Oklahoma Sooners, former Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts met the media as a Sooner. Hurts’ message was consistent throughout.

Hurts’ biggest obstacle this year could be learning the offense. However, Hurts says that’s, “going well.” He also added that Lincoln Riley has […]

  • Sooners Season Ends in 2nd Round of the NCAA Tournament

    Lon Kruger entered the second round of the tournament having never lost there as Oklahoma’s head coach. However, his Sooners got off to the opposite start they did against Ole Miss. Virginia stifled the Sooners jumping out to take a 7-0 lead. Then OU found some form. Brady Manek knocked down  three and the Sooners eventually took an early lead. But UVA’s length really bothered Oklahoma. The Sooners struggled to get Kristian Doolittle going. The Cavaliers notched five blocks in the […]

  • Kiwi Connection Highlights OU-Virginia Battle in NCAA Tournament

    Oklahoma had the most impressive performance of all the first round games in the NCAA Tournament. That’s because they scored more than the 67 other teams in the field. What will be even more impressive is if the Sooners can take down top seeded Virginia in the second round. They’ll likely need another double-digit performance from four of their main stays to do just that. However, this game is a bit more personal for one Sooner and one Cavalier. Matt […]

  • Sooners Slice and Dice Ole Miss in NCAA Tournament

    It was as good a start as Oklahoma has had all season. The Sooners jumped out on Ole Miss with a 12-0 run to start the game. Kristian Doolittle scoring half of that. At one point, OU hit eight straight buckets. Doolittle had eight in the first half. Everything seemingly went well for OU. The Sooners NCAA Tournament experience really showed compared to the none held by Ole Miss. Rashard Odomes, who’s not known for his scoring, hit a tough […]

  • Sooners Prepare for Ole Miss in the NCAA Tournament

    For the sixth time in seven seasons, the Sooners are in the Big Dance. This seasons first round foe promises to provide some fireworks. It’s a battle of legendary coaches. Lon Kruger and Kermit Davis. The two have more than 1,000 combined wins, but this is the first match up between the two. All-time, OU is 1-2 against Ole Miss.

  • Thunder Scorch Nets For 2nd Time With Big Comeback

    It’s become a common trend for the Thunder since the all-star break. Playing from behind. OKC did that again Wednesday against the Nets. Much like they did in December. With the same outcome. The Thunder got down early. Russell Westbrook seemingly was the only one playing at a playoff level. He kept the the Thunder in it early converting an impressive and one layup. OKC trailed by 10 at the break. Whatever Billy Donovan said at halftime worked. Shots started […]

  • Kyler Murray Impresses at Pro Day

    Norman, OK – With 75 NFL coaches, scouts and personnel in attendance for Oklahoma’s pro day, Kyler Murray didn’t do much of anything. At least early on. Murray chose not to do any agility work, run the 40, or bench. The former baseball player cited the fact that he was measured at the combine and that his tape already showed his speed. Instead, Murray waited for the on field work. Only throwing. And he was fantastic. Murray connected on 61-67 […]
