Do you know if the 2 deep depth chart has been released yet, and if not, do you know when it will be?

Haven't heard any word on the depth chart yet. I believe Texas released their depth chart yesterday but no official release. It should be coming out soon but no word has been released on an exact date.

The OU alumni basketball game is this Saturday at noon and will feature members of the '88 national championship runner up team. You going? Should be fun...

You may just see my there. Still looking at my schedule to see if I can make some things work.

Seems like Alex Ross has impressed a number of people in practice so far. Will he contribute this season, or redshirt?

I can't say for sure that he will contribute, but I know Stoops said at media availability this week that they are going to redshirt as few guys as possible. Not sure who that includes or doesn't include yet though. No word was given on that.

Any new nicknames like the Sharks this year?

No new nicknames as a unit that we've heard of yet.

Is Jenni back yet? If not, do you know when she will be?

Jenni is back. She actually wrote her first column this week about being Millie's momma! You can read it here:

Rank by number of receiving yards at the end of the season (most to least): Shepard, Stills, Metoyer, and Brown.

Metoyer, Stills, Shepard, Brown

Any preseason prediction on OU's final record, including whatever bowl game?

11-2 and Fiesta.

Will you cover all of the games this season (away games, as well)?

I will be covering all home and road games.

Now that we know who the backup QB is are we going to see an expanded role? I know Stoops was asked this question but it appears to me that Stoops wasn't going to show his cards. What are your thoughts on the matter?

Stoops doesn't want to talk much beyond Landry Jones, that's for sure. He made that really clear when Trammel tried to ask him about a team with out Landry. Stoops said 'Oh let's not talk about that.' So, an expanded role? I think if he has to come in for Landry if Landry gets hurt then yes. But besides that No. 12 is all that matters right now in the QB position.

Any interviews that stand out for you so far in OU land?
