So, I'm bored this off season and decided to check things out to see what is going on.
OU- Well, their latest star JUCO WR got busted for dope before he even enrolled and got to OU. The stupid kid ("allegedly") obstructs justice by calling out, "don't you know who we are....we're Div. 1 athletes." Excuse me, wanna beeeessss!!! Well, we all know that Big Game Bob will find some loophole to keep talent on the team. Minus 10 points for Slytherin. (Metoyer is really good....so hopefully Akina has DBU ready).
Another hot OU story you may have missed. They recently broke the goose egg on recruiting, but now they are on a roll. Recruit no. 2 is in and they went back to the Texas well. This time with NR DE Matt Dimon from Katy. Before we giggle, let's remember that they have a way of seeing the obvious that Texas seems to repeatedly miss. Sooners have to be a bit worried that they are already picking "diamonds in the rough" and "under the radar kids" with recruit number 2. What is going on North of the Red River? Not much good apparently.
Big XII new contract deal seems just dandy. Competitive with all other conferences (blows away ACC--which continues to lead to speculation about FSU and Clemson or GaTech) and WE keep our Tier lll Rights. Not sure what we do with them other than lock then in a Longhorn Network Lock-Box (yes, I said it) and laugh at everyone else. When you have $300M, you can afford to laugh for awhile. Seriously though, I would just like to watch some Longhonr sports on TV. The Big XII Bball tournament first few rounds being on scrub tv was pathetic.
Where is Dimecoverage? I miss her and the Bevo Daily Roundup. I don't have time to proof read, fact check, or otherwise correct deceptively misleading slams on Aggies or Sooners. But, at least it is an update.
