Is he talking about Henderson and us? We weren't recruiting him at QB 

Don't think so just thought it was funny since he's an ou commit now that an NFL agent publicly said it's a bad move.

No one is recruiting him as a QB, unless it's some shitbird school. So I hope that's who they're talking about.

I mean for fuck's sake...there were some truly powerhouse OU teams and classes under stoops...ones that were great looking on BOTH sides of the football. That is...that cart is so far ahead of the horse on that statement that it's rolled into the next county and the horse has already been shot dead.

Fucking nobody has Riley listed with Saban or Dabo.

Technically that OU mod isn't nobody (whoever he is). I mean, professionally, he is a nobody, absolutely, but he probably has been issued a social security number at some point...so he IS somebody. 

Can someone tell me what the criteria is for a "Football Icon?" I'm conjuring an image of Lincoln Riley dressed in hot pants and a mink coat like broadway joe, but completely shirtless with that sunshine navel tattoo announcing his presence in every room he enters. Real. Iconography.

Correct.  He's listed with Mike Leach and Tom Herman under "offensive genius who has done well as a head coach but hasn't reached the top level" at least not yet.

The only other guy that belongs in that conversation right now is Urban Meyer.

2000 is a long time ago, meth heads.  Tap the brakes.  You've routinely fallen on your faces on the national stage since then.

Yep. Last time I checked Dabo and Saban have actually won playoff games.

regardless, we need to take the conference from OU this year. We’re the only team that will beat them/keep them out of the playoffs and the last thing we need is for ole bag o dicks jr. to be able to see three straight trips to the playoff. If we beat them this year, we can cut off a lot of their momentum, but if they make the playoff again, it’ll be a pain in the ass for us recruiting, even though we’ll still pull in better classes.

I call bullshit. Quite a few times after 2000, OU had one of the greatest teams in history. They could beat some NFL teams. We know so because Sooner fans told us so.

Of course, those teams all went on to get their shit pushed in when they played bowl games.

I think it was @sushihorn that broke down OUs recruiting, but they are getting very Techy in how lopsided their O vs D recruiting is getting. I think Grinch and Lincoln are in a do or die year for OUs defense and if they don't take a noticeable step forward their recruiting on that side of the ball will dry up real quick.

There’s no doubt they haven’t recruited as well on D but that doesn’t matter much in terms of them being a formidable recruiting opponent.  Their lower ranked class from 2019 won’t affect them much on field for at least a couple years.

If they have success, guys will go there even if their D kind of sucks. It’ll give us something to negative recruit but they’ll still recruit well.  Also, Their D was lower last year due to staff turnover.

Bottom line, they will still get more guys we want on both sides this year and moving forward as long as they keep beating us in the Big 12 and going to the playoff.

That weird recruiting dude with the Youtube video that was posted yesterday mentioned that getting a guy as well-respected (fuck if I know how) among West Coast guys as Bookie will backfire on them if he continues to suck with the new coaching.

He's from Inglewood, CA prior to attending IMG.  Plus at least on of the 3 major services rated Radley-Hiles as a 5-star.

Unlike the OU homers, I see Grinch as a huge risk.  4 years as a DC.  No (positive) impact at tOSU.  One good season at WSU which has been severely oversold.  Tons of movement along the front.  His DL stemmed most of the time, then often ran a slant or stunt post-snap.  A lot of times that led to them not being gap sound across the front which was how UW crushed them with the running game.

Grinch has said repeatedly that he wants faster guys up front.  He used a 250 lb Mata'afa at NT for the Coogs.  In that light, the radio silence on Prince Dorbah seems especially weird.

Oh I know the facts about Bookie. I was referring more to the fact he seems like a trashbag human on the field.

Actually he claims we did 

That kind of fits that we tell guys (Powell, Jackson, apparently Henderson) that they can get a try at QB if they want. Of course he's totally bastardizing that for his own approach to try to pump this up as some massive H2H win even though we were really pitching him at primarily the same spot OU was.

Land Thief recruiniks have been saying Riley needs to focus on the DL.  I thought they meant something different...

Why not this guy?

Any state of Texas employees who attend this camp should be fired. Any Texas resident who attends deserves the Herman curse.

They’re claiming he’s too short and doesn’t have good enough straight line speed for Grinch’s scheme. That’s all well and good, but whom else is out there of which they have a good shot for? If you go by crystal balls, you could say either Jacobe Covington or Jahari Rogers.

Jahari Rogers and Ryan Watts. Maybe Joshua Eaton, too. They're doing much better at DB than DL.

Ringo's teammate.  No doubt trying to get him on board to have a better shot at Ringo.

This is true, but he's a quality get in his own right.

With Grinch at the helm, Kendall Jones could be considered a quality get for OU.

Football related, but they've moved DT Michael Thompson to the OL.  From that 2018 DL class Ronnie Perkins looks like a real good get, but Thompson and Tatum were highly rated and neither will do anything on the DL for them.  I guess Redmond is still TBD.

Redmond has a sickness that was reportedly bothering him all last season, although what it actually was was kept under wraps. Many suspected sickle cell.

It was blood clots so his future is in doubt.  Dude was a stud when he played

I was really jealous of that position group for that class.

I found it pretty funny how the Sooners are trying to spin the decommitt on reddit:

Oklahoma is prioritizing versatile guys with elite length and speed at DB.

And here I thought they were prioritizing sub average length and slow DBs.

Honestly, flipping the Mater Dei kid and this guy (funny how we had an MD and a Buford kid in the last class) for Rogers and Watts is probably an upgrade. Oh well, we'll do even better.

Rosters are notoriously bad in terms of ht/wt but I thought this was interesting. Between Grinch and Wylie here is what's happening at DT in Norman

Weight Loss From Fall Roster to Spring Roster:

Neville Gallimore DL 6-2 295 R-Sr. (Weight Loss: 35) 
Dillon Faamatau DT 6-3 290 R-Sr. (Weight Loss: 29) 
Tyreece Lott DE 6-2 281 Jr. (Weight Loss: 20)

Zacchaeus McKinney DT 6-3 288 R-So. (Weight Loss: 18) 
Troy James DT 6-1 286 R-So. (Weight Loss: 18)

Marquise Overton DT 6-1 303 R-Sr. (Weight Loss: 12) 
Jordan Kelley DT 6-3 294 R-Fr. (Weight Loss: 3)
