    OU Football: Could the Sooners\' signing day...

    FROM STAFF REPORTS | Updated: Wed, Feb 3, 2016

    National Signing Day started off with a Sooner surprise when four-star receiver Mykel Jones of Patterson (La.) High School signed with Oklahoma. Jones (6-0, 180 pounds) visited Alabama and Tennessee before cancelling a trip to Ole Miss last weekend in favor of a Norman visit. "He's a major get," said Jason Kersey, OU beat writer for The Oklahoman, in this video with Jenni Carlson. "They needed at least one more wide receiver with what they were losing, and in Lincoln Riley's offense you can never have enough receivers." Jones made his announcement in the Patterson gymnasium Wednesday morning. After thanking his family, friends and supporters, he acknowledged how stressful the decision had been.

MikeSherman Thu, May. 26 2016 10:27:03 PM CST A theory: A blowout loss would have been a disaster. OKC played hard even though it didn't play well. Not a disaster
MikeSherman Thu, May. 26 2016 10:24:13 PM CST Give Kerr credit for the Bogut change. Ended the OKC conga line to the rim.
MikeSherman Thu, May. 26 2016 10:23:04 PM CST Saturday night in OKC should be interesting...

MikeSherman Thu, May. 26 2016 10:13:06 PM CST RT @Shadid13: I don't want to hear how Steph Curry is still hurt. Dude has been dribbling circles around people all night. Lame excuse.
MikeSherman Thu, May. 26 2016 10:08:21 PM CST I'm guessing GSW hasn't blown a double-digit, fourth-quarter lead all season.
MikeSherman Thu, May. 26 2016 10:01:28 PM CST Reminder: When this is over, it's #WhatsTheHeadline time w/@TheOklahoman. We use yours, I'll send you a commemorative copy.

MikeSherman Thu, May. 26 2016 09:50:48 PM CST Donovan down to two timeouts according to TNT
MikeSherman Thu, May. 26 2016 09:43:34 PM CST Durant and Westbrook a combined 15 of 40
MikeSherman Thu, May. 26 2016 09:36:28 PM CST I thought Adams was going catch his own dunk on that.
