U40: Real concerns vs. what's being overblown on defense

The whole gang is back and it's time to really dive into what is working and what isn't on defense. We all know there are issues with tackling. We know there are some coverage issues. After studying the game and looking at some key numbers, what issues really stick out? Can the run game be better? Will the offensive line get better now that Creed Humphrey has been named the starter at center? Army comes to town and that's always a delicate situation from a P.R. standpoint. We love our men...


U40: Is Trey Sermon really the No. 1 RB this team needs?

It's the first road game of the season and the road crew is getting ready to fly to Iowa. Will the hurricane make it a weekend from hell for our travelers? Obviously we talk a lot about the loss of Rodney Anderson and how this affects the entire running back rotation. We have some bold predictions about what will happen moving forward. Is Trey Sermon really the No. 1 RB this team needs? We're developing a man crush on Curtis Bolton even though Carey keeps calling him Curtis Lofton. Are we...

U40: Kyler Murray takes over as QB1 in Norman

Game week approaches and OU has named it's starting quarterback from the opener. We talk about Kyler Murray taking over Lincoln Riley's offense. What should we expect?

We talk about the start of Baker's OU career and try and see how that tells us about the potential start of Murray's OU career. We also take out some time to talk about the joke of an investigation in Columbus,...

U40: Wrapping up the 5-Star Challenge in Atlanta

Atlanta and the Rivals 5-Star Challenge is in the mirror and the entire gang is back to breakdown what we saw in Georgia.

There's also some drama going on in the recruiting camp world that the staff is going to be caught up in toward the end of this month. Why are Rivals...
