  • Oklahoma football: Emails in on new uniforms

    Berry Tramel | Updated: 10 hr ago

    The Sooners wore their new uniforms Saturday night in Morgantown and won, thank heavens, else we’d never have heard the end of it. As it was, the Sooners’ 45-33 victory over West Virginia didn’t draw as much attention as the new uniforms, at least judging from my email. I thought the new uniforms were fine. […]

  • Report: Baker Mayfield to receive a third year of eligibility effective immediately

    staff reports | Published: Mon, Sep 22, 2014

    Could Baker Mayfield be getting a break? The OU transfer has reportedly been given a third year of eligibility, effective immediately, as reported by KWTV Sports Director Dean Blevins . Mayfield, the Big 12 Freshman of the Year in 2013, chose to walk-on at Oklahoma in the offseason, but Texas Tech blocked the transfer, meaning he wasn't eligible to play or receive financial aid in 2014. And because of Big 12 rules regarding in-conference transfers, Mayfield was docked a year of eligibility. Mayfield's eligibility has to be determined by the Big 12, and there are ongoing discussions of Mayfield's status with OU, Texas Tech and the Big 12 Conference. Sources close to the situation said there have been discussions between OU, Texas Tech and the Big 12 about the possibility of Mayfield retaining a year of eligibility if he doesn't play this season. No decisions have been finalized, but Texas Tech has  consistently refused to clear Mayfield to play this season. Mayfield and his attorney, Jim Darnell, had a hearing with the NCAA last Friday. Sources say Mayfield is close to receiving a waiver that would allow OU to put him on scholarship retroactive to at least the beginning of the current semester. /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-priority:99; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman","serif";}
