I offer this video without commentary, except for “job well done.”
While there have been some preliminary games already played, most of which were difficult to watch due to sloppy play, today Saturday 5 Sep 15 marks the first full day of scheduled games.
All teams are excited and ready, some bearing predictions of competing for the National Championship.
I’m more than ready and so are the Oklahoma Sooners, and they have running back Samaje Perine. Yes, those arms are for real and not photo-shopped.
After a long cold Winter and long hot Summer, finally we have the best season of all to enjoy for the next three months.
Some people think that the “blues” haven’t been the same since Stevie Ray Vaughn died tragically in a helicopter crash on this day twenty five years ago.
Perhaps, perhaps not, but I know I have never felt quite the same way about the music style and while other blues legends have since passed away, there isn’t anyone else taking of the crown.
Be at peace, SRV, your music lives on and you are missed.
The count down continues and we are getting close to the best time of the year.
Soon the bands will be marching and playing, then the players take the field.
I will never tire of this video. Be sure and watch it to the end.
As for the jersey number 25, this number is now assigned to one Joe Mixon, a red shirt Freshman.
Slowly but surely the new season of NCAA football approaches. At least this number seems more manageable.
Nuke’s Bulldogs and my Sooners both had excellent 2015 recruiting classes and speaking for the Sooners there are several incoming freshmen that will be difficult to keep off of the field.
Last year I brought to this blog the name of an incoming freshman by the name of Samaje Perine. I did not speak falsely and he proved to be a true phenom.
He was considered the state’s best running back in Texas for the class of 2014, and yet he wasn’t considered OU’s top incoming freshman RB. That distinction was bestowed on the nation’s top All Purpose RB out of California, Joe Mixon. He was red shirted his freshman year after being involved in an ugly and unfortunate incident in an off campus Deli on the occasion of his 18th birthday.
If I were to compare Mixon to a former Sooner great at OU it would be AD(Adrian Peterson), both in the way he plays, his size and speed. In fact Mixon is a little taller and heavier than AD was. Here is a quick sample of his high school tape and AD’s:
With OU hiring a new offensive coordinator to bring the “Air Raid” offense back, having all purpose RBs is crucial as they will be a mismatch for linebackers in pass routes.
Comparing past RBs with current, unproven one’s isn’t fair to the young men, but is always interesting to see if the comparisons are true. Another RB in the OU stable is highly rated Rodney Anderson out of the state powerhouse football program in Katy, Texas. It remains to be seen if he is red shirted his freshman year, but if I were to compare him to a former OU great it would be Demarco Murray in terms of ability, size and speed.
With Perine, there really is no one I can compare him with, not in OU history. Aside from his obvious skills in football, he is a genuinely good and humble young man.
The history of great RBs in OU history goes back many, many years and doesn’t appear to be near its end.
*Update* With little surprise, this one has been stayed.
*Thug: Clifton Lamar Williams(age 21 when murder was committed)
*Date of execution: 16 Jul 2015
*Date of crime: 9 Jul 2005
*Victim: Cecilia Schneider(age 93)
*Last words and Last meal TBA
I have been watching events leading to this execution and for many reasons I find it difficult to believe we are less than six hours from his date with the gurney.
The heinous crime this cretin is guilty of was just ten years ago, in death penalty cases that is actually swift justice. All of his appeals have been denied, including the USSC refusing to review. What is odd is that according to law the execution date must be at least 91 days after the judge signs the death warrant, his warrant was signed on 4 Jun 2015. The TDJC has rejected dates in the past when the 91 day rule was followed.
However, the hour is rapidly approaching and the family of Mrs. Schneider, God Bless all of them, will see justice served for this murderer of a 4’9″ 93 year old lady. That she was brutally attacked, stabbed, asphyxiated and then set on fire is all that is necessary to understand how depraved Williams is and deserves his fate.
