Wrestlemania is tomorrow in Dallas, but it was elsewhere in Texas that saw the slobberknockers tonight as Villanova smoked Oklahoma in the first Final Four semifinal. Here are some highlights of the game, as called by “J.R.” Jim Ross’s commentary in Wrestlemanias of the past.
The wildest aspect of the NCAA Tournament is its proclivity for upsets. Unless you have an allegiance to Michigan State, West Virginia, or Cal, or you really care about the health of your bracket, those teams all losing to lower seeds was the most thrilling part of the opening weekend. Chaos is the rule of the first…
West Virginia defeated Oklahoma in tonight’s Big 12 semifinal after player of the year candidate Buddy Hield’s half-court buzzer-beater attempt was judged on video review to have failed to beat the buzzer.
The Oklahoma Court of Civil Appeals ruled today that surveillance video which shows Sooners running back Joe Mixon punching a woman in the face is considered part of the public record and must be released when requested, because the recording is part of the court file on Mixon’s case. However, it will still be a while…
If you’re not a superstitious person, or you don’t believe in the basketball gods, this here’s a good argument for conversion.
Sooners superstar Buddy Hield scored 32, but it was teammate Isaiah Cousins who proved to be the Oklahoma hero as his jumper with four seconds left capped a 14-point comeback in Baton Rouge and downed the Tigers in the spotlight matchup of two of college basketball’s top players.
Here’s the kind of team Oklahoma is: This afternoon, their leader Buddy Hield was struggling with foul trouble and putting forth an uncharacteristically loose performance against Baylor. The Bears were beginning to turn the corner on the Sooners, and had just tied it up at 41 with 17 minutes left. Right as Baylor was…
Monday night saw an exciting-as-hell throwback to a different time for college basketball: the two best teams in the country facing off, each led by a senior. In the end, Perry Ellis (27 points, 13 rebounds) and #1 Kansas topped Buddy Hield (46 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists) and #2 Oklahoma, 109-106 in triple overtime.
Oklahoma Sooners running back Joe Mixon met with reporters today, marking the first time he’s spoken to the media since being suspended for one year after allegedly punching a woman in the face. From the outset, the university tried to prevent reporters from asking about the alleged assault.
ESPN just revealed the matchups for the second annual College Football Playoff. #1 Clemson will take on #4 Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl, and #2 Alabama has #3 Michigan State in the Cotton Bowl. Both games will be played on December 31, with the final on January 11 in Arizona.
ESPN sent the College GameDay crew to Stillwater for Bedlam, and the miserable weather led to what we can only assume was a smaller-than-usual crowd. They brought signs, though! Here are some of them:
Offensive line prospect Jean Delance committed to Oklahoma back in November, and was still all about the Sooners when he visited campus on Saturday—the day before the release of a video showing members of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity taking part in a racist chant. Delance pulled out of his commitment yesterday.
The University of Oklahoma's Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity chapter has been shut down after video of members conducting a racist chant surfaced over the weekend. In a Snapchat video that made its way onto the internet, Sooners linebacker Eric Striker shared his furious reaction to the incident.
Kansas already clinched their 11th straight Big 12 regular season title, but they could've done without this gut punch from Oklahoma on the final day of the regular season. Oklahoma dumbly fouled Frank Mason III on a three-point attempt with five seconds left, and he made all three free throws to tie the game up at…
Police arrested Brennan Clay—the former Oklahoma running back involved in a triangle of chaos with his wife Gina D'Agostini and Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray—on the night of Jan. 27 for allegedly assaulting D'Agostini at her University Park, Texas home.
The love triangle—or possible misunderstanding—involving NFL free-agent running back Brennan Clay, his wife Gina D'Agostini, and Cowboys halfback DeMarco "Spray Tan" Murray has played out slowly since the end of November, offering enough twists and turns to confuse even those who know the involved parties…
Poor Melvin Gordon ran through a stout defense last week for 408 yards, an all-time FBS record. The single-game FBS rushing champ got to wear that crown for a week.
Baylor kicked the unholy dogshit out of Oklahoma today, a turn of affairs that many Sooners fans, raised to believe in lasting hierarchies of college football, simply cannot countenance. And how can you blame them? For generations, the people of the allegedly great state of Oklahoma have relied on a juggernaut…
