“Well then yeah, I'm gonna cheer for Texas,” King said. “That's probably the only time you'll see me wear a Longhorn hat.”
STOOPS: HURST LUCKY CRANE COLLISION WASN'T MORE SERIOUS
During the Sooners' loss to Notre Dame on Saturday, Demontre Hurst ran out of bounds and into a metal rig that serves as the base of a television camera crane.
Coach Bob Stoops said Hurst wasn't hurt, but it could have been a lot worse.
“I said walking off the field to our trainer Scott Anderson, ‘We need to not complain, but everywhere, they need to have more padding, make sure a player can't slide underneath one of those contraptions, they need to be safer on what they put on the field.'” Stoops said.
“Hopefully they're really investing in the safety of equipment that's on the field.”
