K-State Mask: "Goldfish Can't Even Talk!" Pre-game trash talking from the K-State Mask for the OU Game. He's meant to be humorous with his 'talks".

Why Oklahoma Has A Shot at the National Championship: It's the Computers

From BCS (and Basketball RPI) guru Jerry Palm computer calculations, OU is #3 in the country. If OU were to win out, we should be #1 in the computer polls that still count for 1/3rd of the BCS formula.

Does OU Control It's Own Destiny for the BCS National Championship Game?

Does OU suddenly control its own destiny again? Was one big win on the road against the overrated, err...solid and top 10 ranked Kansas State Wildcats on the road enough?  Or was the loss of C...

Is Texas Heading Towards Independence?

Bohls of the Austin Statesman has written what I've been saying for a long time. Texas only choice maybe to be an Independent. This is a must read for any UT fan. If it walks like and independent and talks like and Independent, then it's an independent right?

Jeff Capel Lands New Job: Asst coach at Duke

Didn't take long for Jeff Capel to get a job. This time as an assistant to his Alma Mater of Duke. In many ways this is a good path for him to get back to the head coaching ranks of major universities. Personally I don't think he'll be too missed around Norman.

From Bring On the Cats: Why The Longhorn Network Won't Destroy College Football

This is a great article on the current state of the Big 12 and the Longhorn network. It's very well thought out and reasonable. It is in response to another knee jerk, over-reaction article on Cowboys Ride for Free that was a typical "the Big 12 is DOOMED" article. This is a must read for all Big 12 fans, as TB nailed it on the head.

OU Regents Approve New Athletic Dorms

If there was one piece of the OU Athletic Department that was lacking it was the Bud Wilkinson Center Dorm. It was old, tired and run down 20 years ago. Not a good way to say "here's where you will sleep for the next 3-4 years" This looks nice, and will be where O'Connell's use to be

Why Texas A&M, or Oklahoma or UT aren't going anywhere

This is a well written blog article explaining why A&M and OU to a lesser extent, aren't going to another conference. OU is joined to OSU. A&M is joined to the other Texas schools. And those are important points

OU makes history by becoming a Tier 1 research institution!

I can't even begin to say how HUGE this is for the University of Oklahoma. OU has come a long way in academics and this is proof. This helps put OU on the academic map. I'd hope OU goes for AAU membership next, but first they had to become a Tier 1 school.
