NCAA Football: Only Two Days To Go

When the Oklahoma Sooners kick off the 2014 season, it will have been two hundred forty days since their last game. That was in the Sugar Bowl and the victory party lasted until Spring training.

The offense is loaded with talented skill players, which will be operating under the protective shield provided by a deep, huge, veteran offensive line that has a total of one hundred seven career starts.

The defense returns nine starters and they will be bigger, faster and stronger than last year, adding about 20-30lbs. per man on the front five(they run the traditional Oklahoma 50 defense).

Expectations are high that the Sooners will make a serious run for their Eighth National Championship not only because of the coaching and talent, but also because of their schedule. The games projected to be the most difficult(Tennessee/K-St./Ok. St./Baylor) are all home games.

The tradition of winning championships has been instilled at OU and that tradition speaks to the players every day and attracts young recruits who wish to be a part of it.

OU is the only school to have four head coaches with more than one hundred victories in their careers. Coaches Bennie Owens, Bud Wilkinson, Barry Switzer and now Bob Stoops. Each man has left his mark on OU football history and its tradition of championships.

From an OU football perspective; those who don’t learn from their history and repeat it, are doomed.

Gov. Perry Shows How To “Mug” For The Camera

The radical left apparently doesn’t care about optics, as long as they can get an indictment on a GOP politician that poses any kind of threat to their electoral designs.

If they cared about optics, the last thing they would want is to remind of us the drunken fool Rosemary Lehmberg who was arrested for DUI in 2013 with a BAT of .239(.08 is the legal standard).

Like this charming photo:

Or this one:

I know right? Any guy says he would “hit that” he means only with a baseball bat.

This drunken fool has now become a national figure and the new face of the Texas Democrat Party, which must be upsetting Wendy “Abortion Barbie” Davis.

Continuing with the optics of this political farce is today’s release of Gov. Perry’s “mug shot” at the same Travis County Sheriff’s office. He might want to use this one for any campaign ads he is planning.

Gov P

Besides the fact that Gov. Perry was using his constitutional authority that the Dems claim is illegal, and many liberal commentators are groaing over their charge, this event has not gone quite the way the Dems had hoped.

NCAA Football: 25 Days~You Sank My Battleship!

HALLELUJAH

Amen, my bruh!

As for the battleship reference, it takes big “guns” to bring those rascals down and here are just a few.

The first big “gun” belongs to OU sports nutrition director, Tiffany “Coach Tiff” Byrd. Those guys with the skinny arms surrounding her are the defensive linemen.
Coach Tiff

The next big “gun” belongs to incoming freshman running back Samaje Perine.
Samaje

SP is a physical marvel. At 5’10” and 245 pounds he also runs a 4.4 forty yard dash. His work ethic and maturity are drawing praise and he is such a punishing runner some fear for the safety of the OU players over the course of the next few weeks before the season starts. During the first day of practice, when the players were only wearing shoulder pads and helmets, he met a defender one on one and the defender was immediately taken off the field for a concussion test.
Perine

Perine is eighteen years old and as we used to say back home, “he is a full growed man.”

The first day of practice with full pads was on Monday the 4th and has been the custom at OU since the late 1940’s the Oklahoma drill was front and center for players and fans, alike. I can’t embed the video player, but you can view it HERE.

A Great Photo, But He Should Be Dead

The full story is here, but let me sum it up.

The father of an eleven year old boy discovered the above deviant, perverted, predatory homosexual pedophile raping his son.

A credit to the father for showing tremendous restraint. The pervert should have died from lead poisoning on the spot.

R.I.P. Johnny Winter~~Texas Blues Legend

John

I started hearing rumors on the interwebs last night that Johnny Winter had died, but couldn’t find any confirmation until this morning.

At the age of 70, he was still playing and rocking in a world tour. He will be missed and mourned by many.

I first became aware of Johnny and his younger brother Edgar when I was fifteen years old in the summer of 1966. I was on a long summer driving vacation with my parents and middle brother. We had driven down to S.La. to visit relatives in and around Baton Rouge and NOLA. While my parents went into Pat O’Brien’s we sat on the curb outside Preservation Hall listening to those great old jazz musicians while munching corn on the cob.

We then drove across to the Mississippi coast, staying in Gulfport for a few days and visiting the surrounding area, drove up through Starkville and Hattiesburg, then made it to Vicksburg and visited the park and war memorial.

From there we drove down to Houston to visit with my oldest brother, who was on a full ride at UofH as a QB. He was happy to be with us all again in his environment and invited us all to join him at his favorite night club, the Act III, that night to see this amazing band with two albino brothers.

Being under age, my parents had to do some fast and smooth talking to get my brother and I inside. Once inside we had a big table to accommodate us and many of my big bruh’s friends who came by.

I had never been inside a night club/bar before and was quite wide-eyed, observing how every one behaved and interacted, but mostly I couldn’t take my eyes off of the two brothers playing their hearts out.

To this day I can still visualize that night and Johnny wailing on his guitar. I was not surprised with his becoming famous just a few years later.

Day by day, the iconic musicians of my youth are leaving us.

Be at peace, Johnny, you will always be remembered.

NCAA Football Countdown: 55 Days

In these last few weeks before football season begins, generally speaking, any news about players or teams is bad news.

However, for OU fans this summer there have been two consecutive weeks of good news, along with one bit of news that I find unsettling while other OU fans are well pleased.

The first bit of good news came on 26 Jun, with the announcement that the OU Board of Regents had approved a three stage renovation of the football stadium. Already referred to as the “Palace on the Prairie,” the planned renovations are both attractive and fan friendly, with fan space, concessions and restrooms being increased dramatically, along with a “bowl” shape.

Here is a current image of Owen Field.
owen field

Here is the video introducing the planned renovations.

Needless to say, OU fans are very excited about the planned renovations, as are current players and recruits.

Then, five days later on 1 Jul, OU introduced new alternate uniforms for the 2014 season. ClICK HERE for a video that explains what went into the design of the NIKE uniforms.

Fan reaction to the alternate uniforms has been mixed, including me. Why mess with perfection? However after seeing the players reaction, and those of recruits, I have become much more accepting of the changes. CLICK HERE for the players reaction.

It was two weeks of great news and the next event to look forward to before summer training camp was the BIG XII Conference Media Days.

That was not to be the case. On Thursday, 3 July, it was officially announced that a young man by the name of Dorial Green-Beckham would be enrolling in OU and joining the OU football team. Fan reaction to this news was mixed and very emotional for many. DGB, as he is known, is an incredible football talent, he was rated the #1 high school recruit in the nation in 2012 and was heavily recruited by OU. DGB ultimately decided to sign with Missouri and remain in his home state. In his nineteen months at UM, he was arrested two times for marijuana possession and investigated for trespassing and assaulting a young woman. The young lady did not press charges. UM dismissed him from the university in April.

Personally, I am opposed to OU allowing this young man to become a part of the football program for fear his criminality won’t end and will have a deleterious effect on the team.
However, I have the utmost confidence in Coach Stoops and his staff and will defer to their judgment that he can become a better person with a new start.

The Assault On Our Southern Border Wasn’t Spontaneous, It Was Planned

When I discovered how many ILLEGAL immigrants were flooding our border with Mexico and that they were primarily from Central American countries, I thought to myself…”now, wait a minute.”

My pause was directly attributed to my cynicism and my suspicions of the current criminal enterprise known as the Obama administration.

I just knew this entire fiasco was a classic example of the Cloward-Piven Strategy. Of course I couldn’t prove it, but one thing I learned from spending time on a farm was you didn’t need to see the dead rat in a barn to know there was a dead rat in the barn. The smell is confirmation enough.

Then my nose to the wind approach directed me to the blog Conservative Wife, where the author did some outstanding research and as her blog article indicates, our government initiated this mass invasion and was contracting for escorts/transport in late January.
planning an invasion

I strongly encourage you to click on the Conservative Wife hyperlink above, she has posted the entire requirements for the procurement.

I also encourage you all to forward this to others, and as she said, ‘MAKE THIS GO VIRAL.’
