Former Oklahoma linebacker Brian Bosworth watched Oklahoma's Tuesday practice. But wide receiver Kenny Stills delivered the news a little differently.
“Mr. Bosworth was just at practice,” Stills said. “He told us to go out there and take care of business.”
Mr. Bosworth, or “The Boz,” was a consensus All-American in 1985 and 1986 known for his big hits and big controversy during his days under former Oklahoma coach Barry Switzer.
Some of the media members laughed when Stills referred to the controversial linebacker as “Mister.”
“I'm sure he would appreciate that,” a media member said.
“I mean, I just got to have respect for him,” Stills said. “He did his stuff when he was here.”

K-STATE LOSS STILL HURTS JONES
Monday marked a month since Landry Jones potentially watched his shot at a national Championship bobble, fall to the ground and then get scooped up by a Kansas State Wildcat.
A month later, Jones is shining. Unfortunately for the Sooners, so is 7-0 Kansas State. The Wildcats demolished West Virginia in what was supposed to be a marquee matchup. Kansas State won that one 55-14.
Yet knowing that the Wildcats beat the Mountaineers worse than they beat the Sooners doesn't sooth the football soul of the Sooners' quarterback.
“No, it still kind of hurts,” Jones said. “You don't want to ever let a game slip away from you. You don't want to ever lose a game that early in the season.
“Yes, Kansas State is a good team for sure. No doubt about that. But it still hurts.”
