HORNING: Whitney Hand not done leaving her mark at OU
Favorite Sooner of all time? Well, from my youth there’s Elvis Peacock, John McCullough, Kelly Snider and, just to make everybody from a different sport, let’s say Jim Begwin.
COLUMN: Arkansas coaching search gets weird
On some levels I can relate to John L. Smith’s plight.
Much like Smith, my employer recently made a personnel decision that directly impacted my workload. Like Smith, I went from merely setting a kick return unit, to calling plays, barking orders, and attempting to figure out what’s going on inside Paul Petrino’s head.
HORNING: Considering Landry Jones
Only a few days ago I wrote about Landry Jones’ opportunity to define himself once and for all over his last four games as a Sooner.
That even though championships appeared out of reach, should he play victorious football and leave the Sooner Nation happy, he’ll be rewarded by fine memories.
Against Sooners, Irish have what it takes, again
The magic was back.Now it’s gone.That’s the Irish for you. That’s Notre Dame and Oklahoma. That’s history, fulfilled.
If I’m Joe Castiglione, I try lining up another home and home series with Notre Dame before the Sooners even visit South Bend next season. If I’m the Sooner athletic director, I try scheduling this game wherever possible, as often as possible.
The 10 best reasons to hate Notre Dame
Notre Dame is a wonderful school, a fantastic institution and a slice of American history that simply can’t be denied. Just ask Regis Philbin.
COLUMN: Could this be a new Red October dawn?
Landry Jones must have said it three times in about 5 minutes. He might have said it a dozen times in all.
“If we play like we’re capable of playing …”
DAHLBERG: A's write a script good as "Moneyball"
Forget the movie about these Oakland A's. Already been done and, besides, Brad Pitt has moved on to other things.
LITKE: NFL deserves every bad call it gets
Remember this a year or two from now, when a video of the final play of Monday night's Packers-Seahawks game turns up on a blooper reel: It wasn't all that funny watching it the first time around.
DAHLBERG: Wild card adds some intrigue to baseball
For baseball purists, there's not a whole lot to like about what Bud Selig has done to the national pastime.
More proof of that came Wednesday when Selig said he wasn't likely to do anything about Melky Cabrera winning the NL batting title while serving a 50-game suspension for a positive drug test. He also said he has no plans to do some things he should have done a long time ago - like take Barry Bonds' name off the top of the career home run list and restore Roger Maris as the legitimate single-season home run record holder.
HORNING: Stoops must know Snyder's secret
It’s too bad that Bob Stoops, despite being in an otherwise good mood during his weekly Monday meeting with the media, remained one not to speculate, because the answer would have been fascinating.
