Tailgate blog: Cyclones (literal, symbolic) invade Owen Field

Travis Haney Published: November 26, 2011

CAMPUS CORNER — Here’s the skinny on the tailgate scene today: There isn’t one. It’s cold. It’s windy. And it’s early. That’s a killer for pregame scene. Moving the start from 7 p.m. to 11 a.m. chapped some fans, from what I gather … but it would have been cold tonight, too. It’s November. What’d you expect? Never mind that it was 70 a couple of days ago. We’ll ignore that.

As for football … some quick pregame notes, as Senior Day is about to begin at Oklahoma Memorial Stadium.

** No Jaz Reynolds, looks like. Makes sense. His shoulder could probably use some time to heal. It doesn’t figure to be a big passing day. Run the ball, get out of here. I’m sure OU is hopeful Reynolds, injured late last week, can bounce back for Bedlam.

** Despite a throat injury at practice Wednesday, DT Casey Walker went through warmups and it at least appears that he’ll be ready to play. Sounded like that was more of a scare than anything.

** A switch overnight in who will wear the No. 12 in honor of Austin Box. It was changed from Jamell Fleming to Jamarkus McFarland. That leaves Fleming, a senior, to wear it next week at Bedlam, if the team chooses.
