I really like the University of Oklahoma athletic program. My favorite football player is Nic Harris. He is the greatest player to ever play the game.

Details on LHN

+

College Football Talk has the details on the LHN... A few items of interest: "As has been stated before, in the event that Texas is no longer a part of the Big 12 (sound familiar?), ESPN will have 60 days to re-negotiate their television rights coverage. If another network makes an offer after those 60 days, ESPN will have 48 hours to up the anty. Texas will work with ESPN to try and gain the broadcasting rights the University Scholastic League (UIL) championships following the end of their current television contract (with FOX Sports Net). If the LHN were to be allowed by the NCAA to broadcast high school games — that idea has been placed on a one-year hiatus — it currently could not air any UIL games or events. As we’ve also noted before, Texas also has the right to replaced "any on-air talent [who] does not reflect the quality and reputation desired by UT for the network based on inappropriate statements made or actions taken by the talent." In other words, don’t talk smack about Texas when you’re working for Texas. If the Big 12 is able to cement a conference network, it doesn’t look like UT will be involved. From the contract: "Neither IMG nor UT will during the Term and within the Territory i. participate in or permit the development of another ‘Longhorns Network’ or similar network enterprise (regardless of name) related to UT" A few points of note have been "reserved" and not made public."

Ryan Reynolds seeking 6th Year

6

From the Tulsa World NORMAN — Senior linebacker Ryan Reynolds said Tuesday he hopes to return for another season at Oklahoma. He will do so if the NCAA grants him a medical hardship based on his series of knee injuries over the past three years. The hardship would give Reynolds a sixth season of eligibility in 2010. "We're trying to get a medical right now. It’s in the process with the NCAA," he said. "I don’t think I’ll find out until the end of the season." Exceptions to the NCAA’s five-year eligibility rule are made through the NCAA "Circumstances Beyond Control" bylaw. It calls for consideration of "situations clearly supported by contemporaneous medical documentation, which states that a student-athlete is unable to participate in intercollegtiate competition as a result of incapacatating physical or mental circumstances."

Sources close to the situation say Evans is willing to make Felton's successor the first $1 million basketball coach in Georgia history.

Bradford won the Davey O'Brien Award, beating out Texas' McCoy and Texas Tech's Graham Harrell as top quarterback. Bradford became the second Sooners quarterback to win the award, joining Jason White, who won it in 2004 after winning the Heisman in 2003. "It will be an honor just to be there with those guys," Bradford said. "This is great to win. I was a little surprised. It's too early to tell what else will happen."

Josh Jarboe free style rap making the rounds on the internet. This was posted in the FanShots section and while I debated if I should put it on the front page or not I really wanted to know opinions on the issue. I think it was a huge mistake for him to not only get on video but to do the rap itself. I was disappointed when Jarboe made it on campus and I had hoped that I was wrong about his thug mentality. Looks like I wasn't.

According to the Oklahoman, Kevin Wilson is looking to move Manuel Johnson outside from the slot reciever. The only apparent downside, as the article mentions, appears to be Johnson's lack of height. http://newsok.com/ou-notebook/article/3275654/?tm=1217212617
