Evans was 22-44 during his six years at NSU and was fired following the RiverHawks’ season-ending loss to Central Oklahoma in November. He had interviewed with several high schools in north Texas and also turned down a scouting position with the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Daily Press reports. A source told The Oklahoman earlier this year that Evans interviewed at Westmoore, but was not a finalist for the job that went to new coach Adam Gaylor. He would be replacing Bobby Klinck, who resigned earlier this year to become the defensive coordinator at Broken Arrow.

During a week when wrestling will take over downtown Oklahoma City, the spotlight will shine on the men on the mat. Mary Jo Stucker has never scored a takedown or worked a reverse, but she has gotten as close to the mat as possible without actually putting on a singlet. She has dedicated her life to the sport, its growth and its betterment.
NCAA Wrestling Championships: How wrestling became a way of life for Mary Jo Stucker
By Jenni Carlson, Staff Writer | Mar 18, 2014SHAWNEE — Mary Jo Stucker will get behind the wheel of her tan sedan on Friday morning, but she won’t head to the Shawnee Public Library to volunteer like usual. She’ll head instead to Chesapeake Energy Arena and the officials’ meeting before the NCAA Wrestling Championships. The men who will be in that room will no doubt get an earful from fans all weekend, but Stucker counts them among some of her dearest friends. “I’ve spent so much time through the years with them,” the 79-year-old said. “I know this will be my very last national tournament, so I do want to be there.” During a week when wrestling will take over downtown Oklahoma City, the spotlight will shine on the men on the mat. Mary Jo Stucker has never scored a takedown or worked a reverse, but she has gotten as close to the mat as possible without actually putting on a singlet. She has dedicated her life to the sport, its growth and its betterment. Hers is a love story. Love for a sport in which she saw great opportunities for kids like her son. Love, too, for a man who became her constant companion. They had their first date at a wrestling match, went looking for a sport for their son and ended up bringing wrestling to hundreds of youth in Shawnee and the surrounding areas. “We spent the better part of our lives at wrestling matches,” Mary Jo said. “It just became a way of life for us.” And life has been good. * * * Mary Jo saw her first wrestling match in college. Her hometown of Stratford, located between Ada and Pauls Valley, had no wrestling program back in the ’40s and ’50s. When Mary Jo enrolled at what was then Oklahoma A&M, she became friends with several gals who went to high schools with wrestling teams. The Bedlam dual came around, and they all wanted her to go. “C’mon, c’mon,” they said, “you’ve got to go.” “I don’t know anything about it,” Mary Jo argued. “That’s OK,” they told her. “Everybody goes. You’ve got to go. This is the Bedlam match.” Mary Jo relented. The first match of the dual was a confusing blur. Then, Myron Roderick stepped onto the mat. The sophomore had been a high school star, but since freshmen weren’t eligible in those days under NCAA rules, he was making his varsity debut. As Mary Jo watched the wrestler who would go on to win three NCAA titles and an Olympic silver medal, she had no idea what he was doing or how he was doing it. “But I thought that was one of the most exciting things I had seen in my entire life.” She was hooked. She tried to talk her friends into going to other matches. They lived across campus from Gallagher Hall, and the matches were at night, so Mary Jo wasn’t about to walk all the way in the dark by herself. Her friends weren’t interested. “We don’t care about the rest of the matches,” they told her. “Everybody just goes to Bedlam.” Mary Jo was starting to get desperate when a friend called and offered a blind date with one of his frat brothers. She wasn’t thrilled with the idea but wanted to help her friend. “All right,” she said finally. “What was he wantin’ to do?” “He was wantin’ to go to the wrestling,” her friend said. “I’ll go!” Mary Jo said. She didn’t ask anything about her date. Not what he looked like. Not what he was majoring in. All she cared about was going to the wrestling match. Mary Jo Shi and Ray Stucker went on that blind date soon after. Neither dated anyone else. * * * Less than five months after their blind date at the wrestling match, Mary Jo and Ray were married. Ray was graduating that spring and taking a job in Colorado, and both of them knew that they couldn’t live without each other. A few years later, Ray’s work landed them in Shawnee. They’d already started their family — they had daughters Rae Lyn and Key Winn and son Augustin — and the Stuckers became so heavily involved with sports at the YMCA that Ray was asked to join the board of directors. Still, their son struggled to find a sport that fit. He was smaller than most of the boys in his grade, and football and basketball just weren’t working. Having seen other boys with the same problem, Ray went to the board of directors and recommended starting a wrestling program. The board agreed to provide a room and a mat if Ray and Mary Jo would be in charge of it. Wrestling in Shawnee started in the basement of the YMCA with borrowed mats and novice coaches. But that didn’t keep the kids away. The program grew every year. Ray coached. So did Mary Jo. But most of her duties involved taking care of the details. Keeping score at matches. Signing up volunteers for tournaments. Talking with officials. Making sure events ran smoothly. Still, whenever one of the Shawnee wrestlers would compete, she’d stop what she was doing. “Oh, I’ve got to run over here,” she would say. “One of my kids is wrestling.” Once during a tournament, someone stopped her after he heard her say that more times than he could count. “How many kids do you have?” he asked breathlessly. “Just one son,” Mary Jo said, laughing, “but they’re all my kids.” With hundreds of wrestlers coming out of Shawnee’s youth program, the sport took hold in the schools in nearby Bethel and Tecumseh. But not in the Shawnee schools. The Stuckers lobbied for the better part of a decade before the district started the sport. What finally changed? “We got rid of the football coach,” Mary Jo said in an exasperated voice nearly 40 years later. “We had a football coach at that time who knew nothing about wrestling other than they make them pull weight. He wanted his boys to build up. He didn’t want them to lose weight.” She sighed. A little more than a decade after starting wrestling, Shawnee High had a state title. That 1986 team featured the likes of Brett Beams, Scott Williams, Nick Mauldin and Kyle Rackley, and was recognized as the best team in the nation. The Wolves would then win back-to-back titles in 1988 and 1989. Those Shawnee championship teams were juggernauts, especially the first one. It dominated opponents. It carried some serious swagger, too. At state, the wrestlers wore matching “state stripes” haircuts. Mary Jo kept score for Shawnee’s matches for many years, and she remembers times when it was so loud in the gym that she would record the scoring with one hand and plug her ear with the other. Still, when she reflects on the way wrestling took hold in Shawnee, she doesn’t mention the state titles and the powerhouse status. She talks instead about the fact that so many kids came out, the high school was able to fill varsity and junior varsity teams while the middle school had four full teams. Hundreds of kids were exposed to the sport and the life lessons that it teaches. Discipline. Responsibility. Self-control. “That’s what we were aiming for,” Mary Jo said, “to give these kids the opportunity.” * * * Mary Jo Stucker was so respected by officials and coaches in the wrestling world that when Oklahoma State needed to replace its official scorer in 1997, she was hired by her alma mater. She found herself scoring wrestling matches in the very arena where she’d been introduced to the sport. Where she fell in love with it. Where she fell in love with Ray. Mary Jo, always a book worm, became even more entrenched in wrestling as the Cowboys’ scorer. She got to know even more administrators and referees, often asking them to help her better understand the sport that they all cherished. Why make the call when you did? Why wait to blow the whistle? “She asked questions that you wished up-and-coming officials would ask,” longtime referee Pat Fitzgerald said. “She was a real student of the game.” Mary Jo and Ray were regulars at Cowboy matches. Even after Ray was diagnosed with cancer in 2009, they continued to attend and even went to NCAA tournament decked out in their orange and black in 2012. On Aug. 10, four days short of his 82nd birthday, Ray died. “We had a long time together,” Mary Jo said, her eyes twinkling behind thick glasses, “and it was all just wonderful, wonderful. ... We were always together. It just reached a point where basically people didn’t think of us as Ray and Mary Jo. “We were just the Stuckers.” Mary Jo still follows wrestling at OSU and Shawnee, but she hasn’t been to a college match since she stopped keeping score a couple years ago. Even though she relishes telling a funny story or a favorite memory, she’s had one major stroke and several smaller ones that make things tougher than they used to be. And while she gets around well, arthritis has taken a toll, too. She plans to attend the morning session of the NCAA tournament Friday, but that’s only because the officials’ meeting will be right after. She talked excitedly earlier this week about seeing so many old friends. “But it’s also going to be hard because it’s going to be my last hurrah,” she said. The NCAA hasn’t said when or if the wrestling tournament will return to Oklahoma City but the earliest it could be back is 2019. “Who knows where I’ll be by then?” Mary Jo said. Here’s guessing that if she’s still able, she’ll get in her car and head to the arena to see her friends. This is her sport, her life, her love. Jenni Carlson: Jenni can be reached at 475-4125.

Collected Wisdom: Kenny King, former Oklahoma and NFL running back
INTERVIEWED BY MIKE BALDWIN | Mar 15, 2014Kenny King was a running back in Oklahoma’s famed wishbone offense in the 1970s. Playing alongside Billy Sims, King was part of dominant OU teams that on the defensive side featured the Selmon brothers. King, who is a native of tiny Clarendon, Texas, went on to rush for 2,477 yards in seven NFL seasons. His primary role was as the lead blocker for Hall of Famer Marcus Allen. He also played his rookie season with Earl Campbell in Houston. After his NFL career ended, King lived for several years in the Denver area, moved to California in 2004 and relocated to Fort Worth seven years ago. The 1975 (incoming) class at OU I was part of might be the greatest in school history. That class included seventeen of the top 20 blue-chippers in Texas. Eleven of us got drafted in the NFL in 1979. I can’t remember another class that’s ever done that. That was such an honor just to be part of a class like that. Barry Switzer is one of the greatest motivators I’ve ever seen. Having him come spend the night with me in Clarendon the night before national signing day made a huge impression on me, something I’ll never forget. My father wanted me to go to Texas A&M, and my high school coach wanted me to go to his alma mater, Howard Payne. Because I was from a small town — OU had a depth chart seven players deep — they thought I might get swallowed up, but I viewed it as an opportunity to see how I measured up. While I was at OU, I think we were 47-7-1. That was an amazing run those four years. I had the opportunity to play on a national championship team and play for four Big Eight champions, a true blessing. I’ll never forget that (80-yard touchdown reception) in Super Bowl XV. Even though it was 30 years ago, people still talk about it. It was a Super Bowl record that stood 17 years. To be part of a Super Bowl champion that season was very special. Opposing fans chanting, ‘If you didn’t have King you wouldn’t have a team,’ was one of my favorite memories my senior year when we were playing the Silverton Owls. I grew up in a small town of 2,000 people in west Texas. We only had 42 in my graduating class. To get the opportunity to play at such a prestigious university like Oklahoma, then to get to play in the NFL, I feel so blessed, so thankful. One time playing sandlot football with kids in the neighborhood I suffered a severely sprained ankle. We didn’t have the money to go to a doctor. My mom wrapped it and I literally crawled for three days. At the time I was eight years old. To look back, crawling on that dirt road defined me, helped make me what I am today. When I moved to Denver in 1990, my NFL career having just ended, I was unemployed. I started out as a part-time handler for UPS and worked my way up into management, and have been in the warehouse industry the past 25 years. I’ve worked with UPS, FedEx, Ameri-Co Logistics and I’m now working for GENCO Technologies. I like the fast pace of warehousing. A month ago my team was challenged with processing 129,000 pieces in an eight-hour shift, which is virtually impossible. Using my football background, I told my team they could do it if they worked as a team. We got it done. It’s very rewarding to complete projects whether they’re large or small. It’s the same concept as football. I have three wonderful kids that aren’t kids anymore. They’re now (age) 31, 22 and 21, but I’ll never forget those three days they were born, all Caesarean births. It was a blessing to play with Hall of Fame running backs. When you cut down a linebacker, it was so much fun to watch Billy Sims, old crazy legs, run down the field. Marcus Allen could juke a linebacker and leave them grasping at air. I never got to block for Earl but I watched him up close and played against him at Texas. He was a bruiser with so much God-given talent. I suffered some consequences from playing football. But after being involved in the NFL concussion lawsuit, I’ve run across a lot of players that they’re sitting in their living room and don’t know where they’re at. That’s a scary thought. It’s unfortunate some players are suffering playing a game they loved. There’s been a lot of progression on concussions. There’s a lot more awareness compared to when I played. Back then they gave you smelling salts and you went back on the field. Nowadays can’t get their helmets back until they’ve passed a lot of tests. When someone asks my advice, I tell them it takes hard work and dedication to accomplish your goals. It has to come within. Others can’t provide that for you. If you don’t have that then you probably won’t be successful. If I had to do it all over again I’d still play football. That was my love, my passion, my dream, my ticket out of a small town. I don’t regret anything. I have so many accomplishments to show for it. Sure, there’s some wear and tear on the body, but that’s part of the game.

Cudjoe quarterbacked Douglass’ 1976 state championship football team. He helped the Trojans make the state basketball tournament as a player. Now he’s the head coach of the basketball program his father — Lawrence — built into an annual power. Does Kendal Cudjoe still get nervous? You bet.
Kendal Cudjoe takes on tasks of upholding Douglass tradition, family legacy
By Jenni Carlson | Mar 13, 2014YUKON – Kendal Cudjoe played in all sorts of high-stakes games back in the day. Rivalry games in the glory days of Oklahoma City high school basketball. State tournament games in basketball. Even a state championship game in football. But Thursday afternoon was his debut at state as a coach. “I’m glad it’s behind me,” the first-year Douglass boys coach said after a 75-66 victory against Tulsa McLain. He laughed, a bead of sweat threatening to drop off his chin and onto his orange sweater vest. So, it was a little nerve wracking? “A whole lot of nerve wracking.” Everyone assumes it’s the teenagers in the short pants who are the most nervous at state. But Cudjoe is a reminder that the players aren’t the only ones who will have their hearts in their throats and their stomachs in their shoes this weekend. He is carrying on not only the Trojan tradition but also a family legacy. Cudjoe is a Douglass alum, the quarterback of the 1976 state championship team and a standout on several basketball teams that went to state. When he got into coaching after a lengthy stint as a college referee – knee problems forced him to give up officiating – returning to his alma mater became his goal. “I think every player would like to do that if they could,” he said. “It’s pretty special.” And it was made even more special for Cudjoe because his late father, Lawrence, is the godfather of Trojan basketball, creating a powerhouse and having his name on the gym’s court at Douglass. When the boys basketball job at Douglass came open last year, Cudjoe jumped at the opportunity. He took over a program that had won four consecutive state titles. Expectations were high to continue that run. But all but one of the starters graduated, and Cudjoe was the program’s third coach in three seasons. There were tough times and rough patches, but the players insist the transition was made easier by Cudjoe’s roots. “He’s from where we’re from — the pride of the east side,” swingman Trey Sanders said. Point guard Antonio Wilson said: “Coach Cudjoe, he’s graduated from here so we can relate to him. He’s a great guy. He’s a great coach. He’s just great.” Cudjoe emphasizes the Douglass tradition at every opportunity. He decorated his office with mementos from yesteryear. He has a collage of photos. He even has a couple of bricks from one of the walls that was near the basketball locker room in the old gym. Cudjoe wants his players to see those things, but he also wants the reminder of the tradition and pride for himself. He never wants to lose the sense of wonder that he has about being the coach at Douglass. “I think about it every day,” he said. So, given the chance to coach his alma mater, the power that his dad built, for the first time at state on Thursday, Cudjoe was understandably nervous. But he kept his team calm when McLain forced a bunch of turnovers and took a one-point halftime lead. He went to a zone defense in the third quarter — his dad always said to keep a zone defense in your back pocket — and built a lead as big as 14 points. He put the ball in his steadiest hands down the stretch and won going away. Now, Douglass moves on to the semifinals. “It might be more nerves,” Cudjoe said. A chance at a state title looms. A basketball tradition is on the line. A family legacy is, too. Bring on the butterflies. Jenni Carlson: Jenni can be reached at 475-4125.

Lee averaged 15.1 points per game for the Vikings, who finished 26-2 and state runner-up. The General Motors employee died at age 59.
Tributes: Stanley Stanley Lee helped Northeast reach the Class 3A basketball finals in 1972
By Scott Munn | Feb 26, 2014A farewell to people with Oklahoma ties who enjoyed the game day experience: •Stanley Lee, 59, of Oklahoma City earned a basketball scholarship to Texas Tech, where he earned a degree in physical education. He spent 30 years working for General Motors, where he stood tall among his co-workers.

ACC signing day capsules
The Associated Press, Associated Press | Feb 5, 2014An overall look at how the 14 schools in the Atlantic Coast Conference fared Wednesday on Signing Day. ___ ATLANTIC DIVISION BOSTON COLLEGE National rankings: (Rivals 42; Scout 61). Best in class: Connor Strachan, lb, Needham, Mass. Best of the rest: Jonathan Hilliman, rb, Jersey City, N.J.; Harold Landry, de, Fayetteville, N.C.; Mike Knoll, k, Cuyahoga Falls, OH. Late additions: Nat Dixon, wr, Lynn Haven, Fla.; Noa Merritt, dl, Sparta, N.J.; Oseh-Lie Saine, dl, Lincoln, R.I. One that got away: Defensive back Tre Tarpley from Pittsburgh, Pa., flipped his commitment from BC to Vanderbilt over the weekend. NOTE: "This is our class. Last year we were able to bring in a couple of guys," BC second-year coach Steve Addazio said. "This is a class that we put a full year in to and we know them very well. Anytime you sign 30, that's a large number. There can be some misses, but we feel great about this class." ___ CLEMSON National rankings (Rivals 13; Scout 28). Best in class: Deshaun Watson, QB, Gainesville, Ga. The Parade All-American who amassed 17,134 yards of total offense is expected to compete with senior Cole Stoudt and sophomore Chad Kelly for the starter's job. Watson committed to the Tigers in February 2012 and held firm despite overtures from schools like Alabama, Auburn and Ohio State. Best of the rest: Artavis Scott, WR, Oldsmar, Fla. Picked Clemson over home-state schools Florida, Florida State and Miami. Late addition: None. Of the drama-free day, Clemson recruiting coordinator Jeff Scott said "when your 5-star quarterback is already on campus you can sleep a little better the night before signing day." One that got away: Andrew Williams, DE. Clemson didn't have strong hopes of landing Williams, but crossed their fingers before he chose Auburn. NOTES: Clemson's class includes linebackers Judah Davis and J.D. Davis, the twin sons of former Tigers great Jeff Davis, who's now an assistant athletic director for his alma mater. ... Clemson's lone defensive end signee was Richard Yeargin of Lauderdale Lakes, Fla., who had committed to Notre Dame but re-opened his recruitment after the season. ___ FLORIDA STATE National rankings (Rivals 4; Scout 4). Best in class: Dalvin Cook, RB, Miami Central HS Best of the rest: Ermon Lane, WR, Homestead (Fla.) HS; Travis Rudolph, WR, Cardinal Newman (Fla.) HS Late addition: Ja'Von Harrison, WR, Kathleen (Fla.) HS, had been committed to Virginia Tech. One that got away: Malik McDowell, DE, Southfield (Mich.) HS. NOTE: "Travis Rudolph and Ermon Lane I think our big-time players," Fisher said. "But I think Ja'Von (Harrison) is right there in that same caliber of them. And then when you get three of them, so spread the field, inside guys, outside guys, they're all big-bodied guys. But the big-bodied guys that have the capability and have the quickness to go inside, which is rare." ___ LOUISVILLE National rankings (Rivals 46; Scout 45). Best in class: Reggie Bonnafon, QB, Louisville. Rated a four-star prospect by Scout.com, the 6-3, 205-pounder was Louisville's first 2014 signee by the staff of former Cardinals coach Charlie Strong, now at Texas. Bonnafon threw for 2,606 yards and 16 touchdowns against just eight interceptions last season. He also rushed for 895 yards and 18 TDs. Best of the rest: RB L.J. Scott, OL Lukayus McNeil, OL Danny Burns, DE Terry Ramsey, TE Charles Standberry. Late additions: Sharieff Rhaheed-Muhammad, LB, Fort Pierce, Fla; Cornelius Sturghill, WR, Memphis; Jimmie Terry, OL, Madison, Miss. All three committed to the Cardinals on Wednesday. One that got away: Devin Pike, TE, Cincinnati. He had committed last July to Louisville but switched to Wake Forest last week after making his official visit. NOTE: Petrino loves offense and lavishly praised Bonnafon, who fits his philosophy: "I'm really excited about Reggie Bonnafon and being able to have him come in, a guy we feel is very, very talented throwing the ball," he said. "He can make all the different throws, is accurate and has a strong arm. He also has the ability to run the ball." ___ N.C. STATE National rankings: (Rivals 30; Scout 26). Best in class: Kentavius Street (Greenville) is rated as a four-star prospect by both Rivals and Scout. Rivals ranked the defensive end as the No. 2 recruit in North Carolina. Best of the rest: N.C. State loaded up with instate talent, including safety Germaine Pratt (No. 9 in state by Rivals) and quarterback Jalan McClendon (No. 9 in state by Scout). Late addition: Cornerback Troy Vincent Jr., son of the former NFL Pro Bowl defensive back, was originally committed to Penn State. But when coach Bill O'Brien left to coach the NFL's Houston Texans, Vincent switched his commitment to the Wolfpack. "Troy's very technical," Doeren said. "He's been backpedaling since he was 3 years old." One that got away: N.C. State couldn't quite reel in instate receiver Trevion Thompson of Durham. Thompson, Scout's No. 3-ranked recruit in the state, signed with Clemson. NOTES: Early enrollee Ty Linton originally signed with rival North Carolina in 2010 before signing to play baseball for the Arizona Diamondbacks organization. He recently decided to play college football and Doeren — who had recruited him while an assistant at Wisconsin — got him to sign with N.C. State instead of UNC. "It's great to have a freshman that's 23 years old that's ... going to offer some unique experiences and life lessons to our team," Doeren said. ... The Wolfpack added five offensive linemen and six defensive linemen. ... N.C. State signed six from Georgia. ... Nine players in the class enrolled for the spring semester. ___ SYRACUSE National rankings (Rivals 48; Scout 51). Best in class: KJ Williams, WR, Bethlehem, Pa. Best of the rest: Alin Edouard, QB, Miami; Steve Ishmael, WR, Miami; Chris Slayton, DE, Chicago. Late addition: Denzel Ward, OG, Chicago. One that got away: Zeek Rodney, DT, Rock Hill, S.C. ___ WAKE FOREST National rankings (Rivals T-55; Scout 66). Best in class: Clawson's class had no players rated higher than three stars by either recruiting service. The best of the bunch might be three-star TE Devin Pike (Cincinnati), whom Scout.com rated as the nation's 32nd-best player at his position. Two of Pike's brothers played for the University of Cincinnati. Best of the rest: The Demon Deacons signed two quarterbacks with impressive pedigrees. Travis Smith went 41-0 at Ithaca (Mich.) High School with three consecutive state titles. John Wolford threw for 126 career touchdowns at Bishop Kenny High School in Jacksonville, Fla. — breaking the state record set by Tim Tebow. Late addition: Fourteen players committed from Jan. 16 to signing day, assistant Zach Stone said. DE Willie Yarbary (Augusta, Ga.) defected from Indiana's class after the Hoosiers changed defensive coordinators. One that got away: Wake Forest got most of the players it wanted. The Demon Deacons offered Demarquis Gates last week but the linebacker signed with Mississippi. NOTE: Wake Forest appeared to cast a wider net than perhaps in previous years. Clawson signed players from 12 states, including Michigan, Arkansas and Mississippi. "I am really proud of our staff. We hit the ground running," Clawson said. "There wasn't one day that a coach could be on the road that we weren't all on the road." ___ COASTAL DIVISION DUKE National rankings (Rivals T-55; Scout 66). Best in class: Zach Harmon (Toledo, Ohio) is rated as the nation's 20th-best center by Scout.com. Best of the rest: Cutcliffe's quarterbacks always attract attention — he's a key mentor for Super Bowl MVPs Peyton and Eli Manning — and his latest QB signees are Johnathan Lloyd (Graham, N.C.) and Nicodem Pierre (Miami). Lloyd enrolled early and took part in Duke's pre-Chick-fil-A Bowl practices, and Cutcliffe says he has "great feet, about as fluid as you would want to be and he's quick." Late addition: Sixteen of Duke's signees committed in 2012 or '13. The last to say he would sign — WR Trevon Lee (Miramar, Fla.) — made his announcement Monday and Cutcliffe said the Blue Devils' big year helped sway him. Cutcliffe says Lee "has certainly got a lot of talent" but shied away from saying he would be an immediate difference-maker. One that got away: None. Duke didn't appear to have any late defections from its class because Cutcliffe doesn't like to play games with the recruiting process. "You didn't hear the word decommit. ... If you decommit, odds are, you never committed," he said. NOTE: Cutcliffe spent Sunday watching his pupil Peyton Manning lose the Super Bowl from a luxury box at Metlife Stadium and he said "as I'm going in, maybe in the hundreds of people said, 'We followed your team, we love your team, etc. etc.' ... All that does have an effect." ___ GEORGIA TECH National rankings (Rivals 47; Scout 47). Best in class: RB Myles Autry, DB Step Durham Best of the rest: WR CJ Leggett, C Andrew Marshall, WR Qua Searcy, DE KeShun Freeman, DB Lance Austin, DB Lawrence Austin Late addition: Autry One that got away: DT Mike Sawyers of Nashville signed with Tennessee. NOTE: Johnson summoned up his customary annual critique of Georgia Tech getting ranked low in recruiting services when he said, "If you go back and look for the last six years, there's four teams in the ACC who've won more games than all of the others. Those teams are Clemson, Florida State, Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech. And that's my view of the star system. So if our recruiting is so bad, and that is so accurate, then we must be great coaches. And from what I read from you guys (media) I don't believe that. You can't have it both ways. So that's the facts. That's not spin. That's just facts." ___ MIAMI National rankings (Rivals 12; Scout 11). Best in class: Brad Kaaya, QB, West Hills, Calif. Best of the rest: Malik Rosier, QB, Mobile, Ala.; Trevor Darling, OL, Miami; Joseph Yearby, RB, Miami; KC McDermott, OT, Wellington, Fla.; Chad Thomas, DE, Miami, Fla.; Michael Wyche, DT, East L.A. College. Late addition: David Njoku, a 215-pound wide receiver and tight end from Cedar Grove, N.J., committed last week. One that got away: Travonte Valentine, a 335-pound defensive tackle from Hialeah, Fla., had committed to the Hurricanes but re-opened the recruiting process last month and signed with Louisiana State. ___ NORTH CAROLINA National rankings (Rivals 20; Scout 31). Best in class: RB Elijah Hood (Charlotte, N.C.) set Mecklenburg County records with 3,690 yards rushing and 53 touchdowns this season. He originally committed to Notre Dame but Fedora credits assistant coach Gunter Brewer with "staying on him. When he realized that, 'I don't have to go across the country to reach all my dreams and goals.' ... That was big." Best of the rest: Fedora landed the son of NFL and former Wake Forest receiver Ricky Proehl. Fedora says WR Austin Proehl was "the most competitive guy on the field" at his summer camp and "you know his dad, you know what his dad has done. The kid's a gym rat." Late addition: North Carolina picked up commitments last month from four-star OL Jared Cohen and three-star WR Devin Perry. One that got away: None. Fedora says he locked up 20 of his 22 recruits before July 2013, didn't lose anyone to any signing-day drama and kept the class together despite a handful of departures from his coaching staff — most notably offensive coordinator Blake Anderson's move to Arkansas State head coach. "A lot of those guys committed. ... They weren't tied to a coach. They were tied to the university," Fedora said. NOTE: Fedora has placed an emphasis on recruiting the state of North Carolina, and eight of his signees were from the state. He's landed North Carolina's past two AP prep players of the year in Hood and T.J. Logan. "Those eight guys from the state are actually seeing what's happening here in Chapel Hill. They see the future," Fedora said. "They understand what we're preaching and they're seeing it on the field and they're getting excited." ___ PITTSBURGH National Rankings (Scout 42, Rivals 44) Best in class: Alex Bookser, OT, Pittsburgh, Pa. Best of rest: Adonis Jennings, WR, Clementon, N.J. Late addition: Hez Trahan, DE, Philadelphia, Pa. One that got away: Wade Freebeck, QB, Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Quotable: "We've had chances to be around him and had a chance to see him play, and we really think he can add a lot to what we think is a pretty good offensive line group that we have already," Pitt coach Paul Chryst said about offensive tackle recruit Alex Bookser. ___ VIRGINIA National rankings (Rivals 40; Scout 40). Best in class: Quin Blanding, S, 6-4, 210, Virginia Beach. A five-star recruit rated as the top safety prospect in the nation by virtually every recruiting service. He and fellow UVA signee Andrew Brown were named co-Defensive players of the year by Tom Lemming. Best of the rest: Andrew Brown, DT, 6-4, 290, Chesapeake. Jamil Kamara, WR, 6-2, 210, Virginia Beach. Steven Moss, OL, 6-5, 275, Fredericksburg. Late addition: None. One that got away: Will Richardson, OL. Originally committed to the Cavaliers, but flipped a few weeks ago and signed with N.C. State. NOTE: Despite much speculation about London's future as the Cavaliers stumbled to a 2-10 finish, he said "it was gratifying to see that the young men that made a commitment earlier stuck with their commitment and really galvanized the entire class going down the stretch." ___ VIRGINIA TECH National rankings (Rivals 25; Scout 35). Best in class: Melvin Keihn, LB, 6-2, 215, Towson, Md. Best of the rest: C.J. Reavis, DB, 6-0, 190, Chester, Va. Marshawn Williams, RB, 5-11, 224, Hampton. Late addition: Raymon Minor, LB, 6-3, 215, Ashland, Va. One that got away: Ja'Von Harrison, WR. Committed to the Hokies long ago, but showed up at his signing in a Florida State hat and signed with the home-state Seminoles. Would have been highest-rated recruit.
In honor of Super Bowl XLVIII, 48 people who could have an impact on America's biggest ballgame
48 people who could have an impact on Super Bowl XLVIII
BY BERRY TRAMEL | Feb 1, 2014In honor of Super Bowl XLVIII, 48 people who could have an impact on America's biggest ballgame: 1. Peyton Manning: America's quarterback is playing in his brother Eli's home stadium, needing a win to match Eli with two Super Bowl wins. 2. Richard Sherman: The Mouth That Bored during Super Bowl week remains the NFL's best cornerback, even if he hasn't said so since arriving in Greater New York. 3. Wes Welker: How big is the Oklahoma City folk hero? President Bill Clinton, unprompted, mentioned Welker's Super Bowl quest during an ESPN interview. 4. Pat Bowlen: The Broncos owner grew up in Wisconsin but has two degrees from OU (business 1965, law 1968). He bought the Broncos in 1984. 5. Russell Wilson: The Seattle quarterback counts two alma maters — he graduated from North Carolina State, then transferred to Wisconsin and says he cherishes both schools. 6. Troy Aikman: Quarterbacked the Cowboys in three Super Bowls. Now calling his fourth Super Bowl as Joe Buck's sidekick. 7. Earl Thomas: The NFL's best safety didn't win the Thorpe Award, like fellow Longhorns Michael Huff and Alvin Ross in 2005-06, but Thomas has become the best of Texas' defensive backs. 8. Demaryius Thomas: The mother and grandmother of the Bronco receiver have been in prison on drug convictions since he was 11. 9. Queen Latifah: Just down the road from her hometown of East Orange, N.J., the hip-hop pioneer and Oscar-nominated actress and talk-show host will sing “America the Beautiful” for the second time at a Super Bowl. Saints-Colts was the first. 10. Pete Carroll: The Seahawk coach has the best winning percentage in franchise history (.594); Carroll also is second in New England Patriot winning percentage (.562), trailing only Bill Belichick. 11. Marshawn Lynch: Seattle's little-talking tailback has become the NFL's most physical tailback, running harder than even Adrian Peterson. 12. John Elway: Perhaps the NFL's greatest quarterback has become a huge success as the Broncos' executive VP of football operations. He recruited Peyton Manning to Denver. 13. Joe Buck: His dad, the great Jack Buck, called Super Bowl IV for CBS. Now Joe Buck calls his fourth Super Bowl for FOX. 14. Percy Harvin: The first-year Seahawk scatback has been injured and barely played (one regular-season catch, three postseason catches), but he's been cleared for the Super Bowl and could be a game-breaker. 15. John Fox: The Denver coach missed four games this season because of a heart procedure but joined Don Shula, Dick Vermeil, Mike Holmgren, Dan Reeves and Bill Parcells as the only coaches to take two franchises to Super Bowls. 16. Michael Robinson: The Seahawk fullback, once a Penn State quarterback, was cut by Seattle after his liver and kidneys started shutting down in August. But Robinson recovered and was brought back by the Seahawks in October. 17. Ken Norton Jr.: The Seahawks' linebacker coach, who was on the Southern Cal staff with Pete Carroll, is the only player in NFL history to play on three consecutive Super Bowl champs — '92 and '93 Cowboys, '94 49ers. 18. Matt Prater: The Bronco kicker set an NFL record for longest field with a 64-yarder on Dec. 9 in Denver, but the Super Bowl will be played at virtual sea level. 19. Russell Okung: Seattle's nice-guy left tackle out of OSU has lived up to the promise of the No. 6 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. 20. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie: The Bronco cornerback was an Arizona Cardinal rookie five years ago when he was beaten by Santonio Holmes for the Super Bowl-winning TD pass. 21. Max Unger: The all-pro Seahawk center sports a beard that would shame James Harden's, but Unger vows it's coming off after the Super Bowl. 22. Zane Beadles: The Bronco guard is growing quite the beard himself and says he might not shave after the game. 23. Olivia Manning: Archie gets most of the spotlight for his boys, but don't forget the mother of Eli and Peyton. Her sons have quarterbacked five of the last eight Super Bowls. 24. Kam Chancellor: The Seahawk safety is the intimidator of Seattle's Legion of Boom secondary. 25. Knowshon Moreno: The Bronco tailback became famous for crying during the national anthem before a game this season. He might cry again; this Super Bowl is in the shadow of New York, where at a young age Moreno was in and out of homeless shelters with his father. 26. Tom Cable: The Seahawks' offensive line coach spent two-plus seasons as the Raiders' head coach. He was fired after going 8-8 in 2010; Oakland hasn't had a winning season since 2002. 27. Michael Bennett: The Seahawk defensive end, the brother of NFL tight end Marcellus Bennett, was undrafted out of Texas A&M, signed by Seattle and waived. But after nine sacks with Tampa Bay last season, Bennett returned to the Seahawks and has 8 1/2 sacks this year. 28. Michael Balzary: Better known as Flea, bass player for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, who will perform at halftime. Flea has asked his fans if they want him to flash the audience during the show. 29. Adam Gase: The 35-year-old Bronco offensive coordinator didn't play college football. As a Michigan State student, he worked on Nick Saban's staff, then followed Saban to LSU. 30. Golden Tate: The Notre Dame alum is Russell Wilson's favorite target, with 64 catches for 898 yards. 31. Paul Allen: The Seahawks chairman, co-founder of Microsoft with Bill Gates, also owns the NBA Trail Blazers and voted against the Seattle SuperSonics' move to Oklahoma City. 32. Julius Thomas: The Bronco tight end played in two NCAA Tournaments for Portland State, losing to Kansas in 2008 and Xavier in 2009. 33. Steven Hauschka: The Seahawk kicker has a degree from Middlebury College in neuroscience and kicked for the Broncos in four 2010 games. 34. Renee Fleming: A different kind of soprano in New Jersey, the American opera star will sing the national anthem. But the Super Bowl is not her biggest stage. She sang on the balcony at Buckingham Palace for Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee Concert. 35. Paris Lenon: The Bronco linebacker played in the short-lasting XFL in 2001. 36. John Schneider: The youngish Seahawk general manager was hired in January 2010 — by Carroll, a rare case of a head coach picking the GM. 37. Champ Bailey: In his 15th season, the Bronco cornerback finally makes a Super Bowl. 38. Jack Del Rio: The Bronco defensive coordinator was interim coach during John Fox's absence; Denver went 3-1 with Del Rio at the helm. He's done it before. Del Rio went 68-71 in nine seasons coaching the Jaguars. 39. Cliff Avril: The Seahawk defensive end forced five fumbles this season, but that's nothing. He forced six in 2011, recovering three. 40. Dave Logan: The 25-year Broncos' radio voice has been a Colorado force for half a century. A high school star in suburban Denver, then a Big Eight basketball and football player at CU in the 1970s. He played nine years in the NFL. He has a daily radio show. And he's coached high school football for 20 years, winning 5A titles at three Denver-area schools. 41. Orlando Franklin: The Bronco offensive tackle gained fame when his jersey was photographed being worn by loose-cannon Toronto mayor Rob Ford. 42. Warren Moon: The Seahawks' radio analyst was a University of Washington quarterback before he played 23 pro seasons — six in Canada, 17 in the NFL, including two with Seattle. 43. Bruno Mars: The Hawaiian-born pop star will team with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and has not asked his fans if they want him to flash the audience. 44. Terrance Knighton: The defensive tackle signed with Denver as a free agent last March and has become a team leader — he famously huddled the defense in the locker room after the Broncos' late-season loss to San Diego. 45. Sherman Smith: The 59-year-old Seahawks' running back coach was Seattle's leading rusher its first four years in the NFL (1976-79). He also grew up in Youngstown, Ohio, going to North High School, across town from Cardinal Mooney, a couple of years ahead of Ron Stoops Jr. 46. Manny Ramirez: The Bronco center joins Avril and Lenon as members of the 2008 Detroit Lions, who went 0-16. 47. Britton Colquitt: The Bronco punter is the son of Craig Colquitt, the nephew of Jimmy Colquitt and brother of Dustin Colquitt, NFL punters all, past or present. But you might not even see him. Britton Colquitt has punted once total in Denver's last three games. 48. Doug Baldwin: The Seahawks' big-play receiver — 15.6 yards per reception — was an undrafted free agent out of Stanford.

COMMENTARY — Missouri assistant's journey started at Tuttle, wound through Stillwater and landed him in the job he'd been preparing for all his life.
Cotton Bowl: Josh Henson has always had an offensive coordinator's mind
BY JENNI CARLSON | Dec 31, 2013ARLINGTON, Texas — Josh Henson doodled like most kids when he was in elementary school. What he drew, though, was unique. “When I was bored in class,” he said, “I sat there and drew up football plays.” Back home in Tuttle, his mom and dad still have notebooks full of those early doodles. “I need to go back and look at some of them maybe,” said Henson, now the offensive coordinator at Missouri. He chuckled. “I didn't know anything then.” Even though his understanding of offenses wasn't nearly what it is now, Henson knew even as a child that he loved the strategy of the game. He thought about schemes all the time. He mused about football at every opportunity. Now, Henson is getting a chance to live out that passion. In his first season as an offensive coordinator, he helped Missouri to a big-time turnaround that brought it within a quarter of playing for the national title. Friday night, the Tigers hope to put an exclamation mark on this season with a win against Oklahoma State in the Cotton Bowl. OSU happens to be Henson's alma mater, the team he cheered as a boy, the place where he got his first job as a college coach. Henson has told his OSU-season-ticket-holding family to go ahead and cheer for the Cowboys. Not a chance. “Blood being thicker than water,” his dad said, “I'm going to have to root for Missouri.” The road to this wild intersection took Henson to Stillwater for more than a decade, then to the Louisiana bayou and eventually to the middle of Missouri. But even as the 38-year-old's journey wound around the college football world, Josh Henson's roots always reached back to the passion he developed in his hometown of Tuttle. He's where he is because of where he started. *** Rick and Mary Henson decided that if they were going to have kids, they wanted them to be raised in Tuttle. Having grown up in the area, they knew many of the teachers, men and women who had the same values they did. Work hard Monday through Saturday. Go to church Sunday. Do right every day. So, Rick and Mary returned to Tuttle. And when they had Josh, the first of four children, Rick and Mary realized what a perfect fit the sport-crazy town just southwest of Oklahoma City would be for their son. “Within two or three years, if you couldn't catch it or kick it or throw it,” Rick said, “he didn't want to fool with it.” And once the father explained football formations and schemes, the son was captivated. If there was a scrap of paper lying around the Henson house, it had one of Josh's plays scribbled on it. Rick and Mary once replaced some end tables that they'd had for years in their living room, and when they turned them over to throw them away, they found plays drawn on the underside. Lying on his back under those tables, Josh had apparently realized he had a blank canvas and did what he always did — he doodled plays. But it took a little encouragement to turn passion into action. Even though Josh's parents always told him that he could be whatever he wanted to be if he worked hard enough — they modeled that work ethic, Rick as a firefighter and Mary as a super-involved, stay-at-home mom — it wasn't until the summer before Josh's freshman year of high school that he realized the work he had to put into football. Tuttle football coach Phil Koons had seen potential in Josh and told him as much. Josh bought in and started going to Koons' 6 a.m. weight lifting sessions. But then after a late night spent on the phone — Henson jokes now that he was probably talking to his girlfriend — he decided not to go to weights the next morning. His phone rang at 6:05. In no uncertain terms, Koons let him know that missing weights wasn't an option. “After that conversation,” Josh said, “I didn't ever miss again.” Koons pushed and cajoled and taught and inspired. “I really think without Coach Koons, I wouldn't be where I am today,” Josh said. “I firmly believe that.” With lessons learned in Tuttle, Henson has tackled every football opportunity that has come his way. *** Josh Henson became an all-stater at Tuttle, but he got no Division I offers. Too small. Too slow. Most coaches told him to go to junior college, and they'd check in on him in two years. Josh had other ideas. “I don't know if I was just not very smart or what ... ” he said, “but I had it in my head that I could play at the Division I level.” With the encouragement of his parents and his coach, he went to OSU as a walk-on linebacker. Five years later, he left Stillwater as a team captain and a three-year starter on the offensive line. Over those last three seasons, he also built a rapport with his position coach, who was also working as an offensive coordinator for the first time. Guy by the name of Les Miles. Because the Cowboys played redshirt freshman Tony Lindsay at quarterback during Josh's senior season, Miles put some extra responsibility on his veteran lineman. The coach had Josh call out checks, and so every Thursday night, Josh would spend about an hour and a half in Miles' office going through the reads and calls. After Josh graduated and spent a year at Kingfisher High, then a year as a grad assistant at OSU, Miles returned as the Cowboys' head coach and hired Josh as his tight ends coach. A few years later, Josh went with Miles to LSU. Josh lamented over leaving or staying and helping turn around his alma mater. But in the end, he decided he had to go. “I just kind of realized if I was going to grow as a coach ... I needed to move out and expand and experience different people and ideas,” he said. Josh spent four seasons at LSU and was part of the Tigers' national title in 2007. Two years later, he moved to Missouri when he got a chance to coach the offensive line and return to what was then Big 12 country. Then when longtime Missouri offensive coordinator Dave Yost resigned after last season for personal reasons, Tigers head coach Gary Pinkel approached Henson about the job. “Do you feel like you're ready?” Pinkel asked. “I am,” Josh assured him. The results have backed him up. Running a spread offense powered by quarterback James Franklin, tailback Henry Josey and a stable of big, talented receivers, Missouri has averaged 492.9 yards a game this season, ranking as the 16th best offense in the nation. That's better than Georgia or Wisconsin or Boise State or a host of other schools, and the Tigers rolled up those numbers largely against SEC defenses. “Even though he's young,” Pinkel said, “he's got a real good football mind.” Missouri offensive lineman Max Copeland said, “Here's the thing — this is his first year with the title offensive coordinator, but I think he's had an offensive coordinator mentality for probably his whole football life. He understands the game on a wave length that most don't.” Copeland chuckled. “It's like ‘A Beautiful Mind' when that guy's seeing numbers in his head. I feel like that's what's happening when he's in the booth.” The folks back in Tuttle know exactly what he's talking about. “As bright as Josh is and outgoing and just a student of the game,” Koons said, “it always seemed like the sky was the limit.” Who knows where the path might lead Josh Henson next? He talks about every stop along the way helping him learn and grow and get to where he wants to be, but he isn't willing to say where he ultimately wants to go. Becoming a college head coach? Returning to his alma mater? Going to the NFL, perhaps? Those who know him best say they could absolutely see him becoming a head coach, but as far as he is concerned, he's exactly where he wants to be. He's still doodling plays, but now, he's got a team to run them. “If you'd have told me 13 years ago that this was going to be my career path ... ” Josh said, smiling, “I'd have said, ‘Sign me up.'” Jenni Carlson: Jenni can be reached at (405) 475-4125.

Coach Steve Sarkisian takes over at USC
GREG BEACHAM, Associated Press | Dec 2, 2013LOS ANGELES (AP) — A few hours after Steve Sarkisian was hired by Southern California, the coach bounded up the steps of the palatial McKay Center and went to work on getting the Trojans back to national title contention. USC hired Sarkisian away from Washington on Monday, bringing back the former Trojans offensive coordinator to his native Los Angeles area and the storied program where he thrived as Pete Carroll's assistant. Sarkisian immediately held a 35-minute evening meeting with his new players, easing their next transition in a tumultuous season. "It's awesome to be home," Sarkisian said on USC's downtown campus while clad in a black Trojans sweatshirt. "A lot has gone on, but it's awesome to be back. I'm fired up to be here. ... It's great to be back. It's great to be part of the Trojan family again. It's always been a dream of mine to be here." Two days after USC's regular season ended with a 35-14 home loss to crosstown rival UCLA, athletic director Pat Haden replaced interim coach Ed Orgeron with yet another assistant coach from Carroll's halcyon era at the school. Orgeron resigned from USC when he wasn't chosen for the full-time job despite going 6-2 after replacing Lane Kiffin in late September. USC hasn't made a formal announcement, but players said offensive coordinator Clay Helton will be the interim coach for the Trojans' bowl game. The 39-year-old Sarkisian went 34-29 in five seasons at Washington, rebuilding a decimated program into a perennial bowl team with four straight winning seasons. He is the permanent replacement for Kiffin, his former co-offensive coordinator at USC under Carroll. Sarkisian will be formally introduced at a news conference Tuesday, but he's already at work on the transition with an evening of meetings. "Got a lot of work to do in a short amount of time here in the next few days," he said. "It's been obviously an emotional day or so for the players here, for myself and my former team, those kids up in Seattle." Haden declined comment on the decision while leaving the meeting, only saying the coach "hit it off really well with our kids." In a statement released by USC, the athletic director said he conducted a major search during the regular season, interviewing five coaches for the job. "We kept coming back to Sark," Haden said. "He is the only one who was offered the job. I believe in my gut that he is the right coach for USC at this time. He embodies many of the qualities for which we looked. He is an innovative coach who recruits well and develops players. He is a proven and successful leader." When Sarkisian formally takes over in late December, he'll be the Trojans' fourth head coach in less than three months — but his ties to USC run deep. He briefly played baseball at USC before going to BYU as a quarterback, and he served three stints as an assistant coach with the Trojans before Washington called. "Hopefully this time I don't have to leave again to come back again," Sarkisian said with a laugh. "Hopefully the fifth time is the charm." Sarkisian is a Torrance native who has been an impressive recruiter in California, luring dozens of talented players to Seattle from high schools within a short drive of USC's campus. During Monday's team meeting, when Sarkisian asked which players he had recruited for either the Trojans or Huskies, more than half the room raised its hand. "He recognized all of us," said USC offensive lineman Kevin Graf, who was recruited by Sarkisian. "He did a good job letting us know it's going to be a family again. That's important to him." Sarkisian takes over one of college football's crown jewel programs, a five-time AP national champion with a lengthy history of national prominence. He also inherits a roster stocked with solid talent by Kiffin and Orgeron, yet still laboring under the last of NCAA sanctions stemming from violations during Carroll's era. Next season is USC's last year of scholarship limitations, keeping the Trojans with just 75 scholarship players on their roster — 10 fewer than other schools. Freshman Max Browne, the top recruit in Kiffin's last class, is a native of the Seattle suburbs. He was offered a scholarship at Washington by Sarkisian 3½ years ago. "I think guys walked out of the meeting with a positive vibe and ready to go to work," Browne said. "It's something we've kind of got used to, the roller coaster we've been going through. Whoever is leading us, we'll get behind him." Many USC players went online to post mixed feelings about the move. "Words can't explain how I'm feeling right now....just lost a father. Way more than a coach," tweeted USC defensive lineman Leonard Williams, who was named to the all-Pac-12 first team Monday. Orgeron recruited Williams out of his native Florida. "I'm on board Sark was very close to getting me to come with him to U Dub," USC freshman tailback Justin Davis tweeted. Orgeron turned himself into a candidate for the full-time job with an impressive revitalization of a program that had grown dour and stale when Haden fired Kiffin, who went 28-15, at the airport five games into the season. Orgeron's tenure was highlighted by the Trojans' stunning victory over No. 5 Stanford last month, but his groundswell of support for the full-time job dissipated last weekend when UCLA trounced USC. The Trojans also lost to rival Notre Dame under Orgeron, but won every other game. Orgeron said farewell to his players in an emotional team meeting earlier in the day. "I've known Coach O since I was 4 years old, and I've never seen Coach O cry before," Graf said. "It's hard hearing (fans) yell that if we had won the UCLA game, he would still be here. That's hard as players." Haden said he spoke to Orgeron about remaining at USC in some capacity, but Orgeron said he wants to be a head coach. In a school statement, Orgeron thanked "all the Trojan players and family members who have become close personal friends during my 11 years at USC. I am especially proud of this year's team and coaching staff, who had to start a new season and then bonded, played together as a family and competed like Trojans." Haden bypassed Orgeron to poach a coach from a Pac-12 rival, although USC and Washington won't play again until 2015. Sarkisian was in the middle of a contract that runs through 2015, and Washington will be paid $1.5 million to buy out the deal. Denver Broncos assistant coach Jack Del Rio interviewed for the job at his alma mater, and USC was thought to be interested in Texas A&M's Kevin Sumlin, Vanderbilt's James Franklin and Boise State's Chris Petersen. Instead, Haden went with another contributor to USC's glorious recent past. Sarkisian was on Carroll's staff as the quarterbacks coach for USC's national title in 2003. He left for one season with the Oakland Raiders while the Trojans won another title in 2004, but returned for the next four years at USC. Sarkisian played a major role in the Trojans' development of a string of standout quarterbacks, coaching Heisman Trophy winners Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart along with Mark Sanchez, John David Booty and Matt Cassel. Sarkisian likely realizes he won't win over all of his new players immediately, given their strong feelings for Orgeron. Other young players are already looking forward to a new beginning after a circus of a season. "I say let's kill the negativity, because this is a fresh start," said USC offensive lineman Zach Banner, another Seattle-area product. "We've got to be positive. I always dreamed about playing for Coach Sark, so I respect him. We've got a good man." ___ AP College Football Writer Ralph D. Russo and AP Sports Writer Tim Booth contributed to this report.

Baylor coach Art Briles gets new 10-year deal
STEPHEN HAWKINS, Associated Press | Nov 13, 2013Baylor coach Art Briles has a new 10-year contract with the fourth-ranked Bears, the team he has taken from perennial Big 12 loser to the conference's lone remaining undefeated team. Briles told The Associated Press on Wednesday night he is really "humbled and blessed" by the new deal that goes into effect after this season. "It allows us to do what our job is, concentrate on Texas Tech this Saturday," Briles said. "We feel fortunate to be at Baylor, and are glad the feeling is mutual." Baylor regents approved the deal Wednesday. Financial terms weren't revealed, which is standard policy for the private university. When Briles arrived at Baylor six years ago, the Bears had just finished their 12th consecutive losing season under four coaches since the inception of the Big 12. Briles is 41-30 at Baylor, which is 8-0 for the first time in school history. The Bears are fifth in the BCS standings and have won a school-record 12 games in a row. Briles' fast-paced spread offense has turned Baylor into a national title contender this season. The Bears are averaging 61 points, on pace to break a major college football record. The 10-year deal goes through the 2023 season. Briles had already been signed for multiple seasons past this year. "We've got a lot of bridges to cross. We feel like we're in the infant stages of our program, without question," said Briles, who turns 58 next month. "That's what makes it exciting." After playing Texas Tech in the Dallas Cowboys' stadium this weekend, the Bears have games left at 12th-ranked Oklahoma State and TCU. Their regular-season finale, which will be the last game played at Floyd Casey Stadium, is Dec. 7 against 23rd-ranked Texas in what could conceivably determine the Big 12 champion. Baylor went 4-8 in each of Briles' first two seasons, including 2009 when Robert Griffin III suffered a season-ending knee injury in the third game of the season. But in 2010, the Bears had their first winning season as a Big 12 team and made it to their first bowl game in 16 years. A year later, Griffin won the Heisman Trophy while Baylor capped its first 10-win season since Mike Singletary was a linebacker at the school 31 years earlier with a win over Washington in the Alamo Bowl. Next season, the Bears move into a new $260 million on-campus stadium situated on the banks of the Brazos River. Baylor athletic director Ian McCaw said in a recent interview with the AP that Briles turned Baylor "into a destination job" after arriving in a position that "was not the most appealing out there." "To his credit, Art's created something here that's really special and we hope he's going to see it through to the final line," McCaw said then. Briles came to Baylor from Houston, where he was 34-28 in five seasons (2003-07). The Cougars were 0-11 two seasons before he arrived, but Briles led them the 2006 Conference USA championship and four bowl games. Briles has spent his entire coaching career in Texas, starting in the high school ranks. He won four state championships in his 12 seasons at Stephenville High before becoming the running backs coach at Texas Tech, his alma mater. He spent three seasons with the Red Raiders before going to Houston. "Obviously, his track record was tremendous, but the things that were especially appealing about him were his ability to turn around programs," McCaw told the AP last month. "What he did at Stephenville High, taking over a program that really had never won, leading them to four state championships, taking over Houston when they were 0-11 and taking them to four bowl games. It takes a unique coach to be able to lead that kind of a turnaround, and he's got the makeup to do it. And he's done it again at Baylor."

Emails: Time to bash Bob Stoops, Josh Heupel, OSU fans
Berry Tramel | Oct 25, 2013The OU-Texas email bag was widely praised, and it made me regret discontinuing my weekly email bag. So I’ve committed to restarting. Lots of OU football, with some OSU and college football and Thunder mixed in. COLLEGE FOOTBALL Joel: “What statistics are you using to say that the SEC has parity AND power? Have they done anything of note outside of conference play? I can’t think of anything (unless you count Ole Miss beating Texas or LSU beating TCU, neither of which appear particularly good wins, at this point). I get the parity but don’t, necessarily, see the power….maybe I’m missing something. My guess is if we could forget what happened in previous years, we’d see this SEC as being on par, but no better, than the ACC or Pac-12 in terms of power.” I don’t think so. I think we’d see the SEC as being incredibly deep. Way deeper than the ACC. Not even close. Each league has 14 teams. If you played a challenge series, 1 vs. 1, 2 vs. 2, 3 vs. 3, etc., the SEC might win 12-2. Heck, for fun, let’s do it. Alabama-Florida State: Bama LSU-Clemson: I’d take LSU, but if someone wants to call it a push, that’s fine. Texas A&M-Miami: A&M Missouri-Virginia Tech: Missouri Auburn-Georgia Tech: Auburn Georgia-Pitt: Georgia, this is getting bad South Carolina-Duke: Gamecocks Ole Miss-Syracuse: Mississippi Florida-North Carolina State: Florida Tennessee-Wake Forest: Volunteers Vanderbilt-Maryland: Vandy Mississippi State-North Carolina: I don’t know. I guess I’ll give you the Tar Heels Arkansas-Boston College: Hogs. Kentucky-Virginia: OK, Virginia So that’s 11-3 or 12-2. Ponca: “I hope this email doesn’t get too confusing, but I’d appreciate your thoughts on an interesting scenario, both for this years’ BCS championship matchup and for the 4-team playoff. First, this year. Let’s say that Missouri loses a game on its way to winning the SEC East but then beats an undefeated Alabama team, thus winning the SEC (something similar could happen in other conferences, but we’ll use this one as our example). Let’s also assume that no more than one other conference champion is undefeated (maybe FSU or Ohio State…doesn’t matter). I’m guessing that Alabama would still be at least No. 2 in the BCS and thus get the nod over Missouri…a travesty and another big break for Saban. What do you think? Second, next year. What I expect to happen is the committee will take the five champions of the major conferences and rank them 1-5. They’ll then determine the next four best teams and rank them 1-4. Then they’ll compare Champion slot 4 vs. non-Champion slot 1 and, if the non-Champion is clearly superior, they’ll make a switch. Then they’ll do the same with 3-2, 2-3, and 1-4. So that gives them their four teams. But let’s take the above Missouri-Alabama scenario but give Missouri 3 losses instead of 1 (similar to KSU-OU 2003). Now when Missouri beats Alabama, they get in the Champions discussion but would likely be considered 4. Let’s assume that Alabama is 1 in the non-Champions group. I think the committee should not even consider removing Missouri for Alabama, since they just won head to head but, instead, they’d need to compare Alabama to the number 3 Champion team. Does that make sense? Do you think this might be the way the committee goes about their selections?” I have to give you credit, Joel. You’re asking a bunch of interesting questions. But I have some answers. 1. I think Missouri would jump Alabama. 2. No chance. The committee will go about their business the way the basketball committee does. They’ll debate who should be No. 1. Among however many teams. Then they’ll agree. Then they’ll move on to No. 2. Won’t’ be much conference hierarchy discussions. I’d say there should be, but there won’t be. Jonathan: “You’re right about the polls — even if the great unwashed thinks the coaches poll is somehow legit. The coaches poll voting is more about self (team/school) interest ) than ranking teams based on merit, trying to position their particular school most favorably. And with the money at stake in college football, not to mention their own job security, who can really blame them? Of course, you already know this. I do commend the AP for taking itself out of the farcical BS, I mean BCS, ranking equation to maintain some journalistic/polling integrity. Interestingly, while I was a football grad assistant at a Conference USA school in the late ‘90s, our other GA ranked and submitted every coaches poll ballot during the season, until the final one. Oddly enough, our head coach rarely if ever looked at it before submission!” You know, I actually don’t mind the concept of a GA ranking the teams for the coaches poll. I promise you, a GA is more in tune with what’s going on – and has less bias – than a head coach. In fact, that would be a decent poll. The GA poll. A poll of graduate assistants, ranking the teams. SOONERS Calvin: “When will someone in the media in Oklahoma stand up and ask the glaring question: Why does Josh Heupel still have a job as offensive coordinator at the University of Oklahoma? I’m certain I am not the only person who follows Oklahoma football who can look at the offense and wonder why it has no direction, no identity and still runs the same plays it did with Sam Bradford and Landry Jones with quarterbacks today who have nowhere near that skill set? Heupel is obviously a system coordinator. By that, I mean he trusts in a system, rather than curtails his system and style to the available talent. If he did, there is no way on earth he would ask Blake Bell to throw the ball 30 times a game. If he were an actual offensive coordinator, he would use the strength of the offense (offensive line, running backs and Trey Millard) in ways that allow the team to maximize their capabilities. Instead, he wants to sling the ball around the field like Sam Bradford is QB, Jermaine Gresham is tight end and Mark Clayton is wide receiver. News Flash!! Those guys aren’t here anymore and we don’t have anyone like them at all. History has shown us the last few years — since he has been named OC, that our offense has become insanely predictable and much less productive against teams with similar or better talent. Some of that is talent, but most of it is that its easy to stop what you know is coming.” The problem with criticism of coordinators is that it’s very often based on falsehoods. Calvin, you said all kinds of things that aren’t true. OU is NOT flinging the ball around like Bradford and Landry are still here. They routinely would throw 50 times a game. Landry threw at least 40 passes 29 times in 50 starts. The Sooners are not running the same offense they did in the past. They’re running the quarterback, which they never have in the past, and they’re not throwing deep as often, because of the quarterback’s limitations. I thought Heupel’s game plan against Texas was awful; he did not take advantage of the QB run game. But to answer the question, Heupel still has a job because his offenses have been very productive for the most part. Fan bases remember their own failures and the opponents’ successes. For example, Robert Griffin III came to Stillwater two straight years and was totally shut down, in both 2010 and 2011, at least until the game was out of hand. But OU fans don’t remember that. They remember RG3 lighting up the Sooners in Waco. Heupel has done a good job in the past. Heupel hasn’t done a great job this year, and chances are he won’t until he gets better quarterback play. Dallas: “Funny, but had Bob Stoops hired Art Briles to replace Mike Leach instead of Leach hiring Briles first, there’s no telling where OU, Texas Tech, Houston, A&M and Baylor would be today.” Well, yes, and if OU had hired Nick Saban instead of Stoops, there’s no telling where anyone would be today. For the record, Briles was the head coach at Stephenville High School in December 1998, when Stoops arrived at OU. There’s no reason for Stoops to have any idea who he was. A year later, Tech hired Leach, and Leach hired Briles to be Tech’s running backs coach. David: “I was a little surprised by a small blurb in Wednesday’s Oklahoman. The media (TV) ratings for the past week, and the OU-Kansas game garnered a 21.2 rating while the OSU-TCU game only drew a 14.1 rating. This despite the fact that the OSU game was against a competitive team while OU played a weak opponent, and the fact that OSU’s game was on an over the air outlet while OU was on cable and both team have identical records. I had always been aware that OU was the more popular team in Oklahoma, but I had no idea that they were 50% more popular. Despite the efforts of Boone Pickens, and everything else, it would seem that OSU still has a long ways to go to overtake OU here in Oklahoma.” Nothing gets past you, does it? Yes, OU does indeed have substantially more fans than does OSU. And before anyone peels off more emails, no, The Oklahoman does not cover the programs equally in terms of volume of content. We give both programs the same amount of baseline coverage, but over the course of the year, we clearly write more about OU – history, national perception, etc. – because the marketplace demands it. Fitz: “Do you suppose Bob Stoops will make another Brennan Clay out of Keith Ford and waste a year or two by setting him on the bench for fumbling a couple of times?” Comparing Clay and Ford is like comparing South Dakota and Miami Beach. Clay is one of the great coaching success stories ever at OU. For 21/2 years, he was perhaps the worst oft-used tailback in OU history. I wrote a blog about the historic lack of production. Then something clicked and he got going. Ford is going to be the bellow next year. No doubt about it. But right now, he’s not any more productive than Clay and certainly isn’t as good as Damien Williams, who is OU’s best tailback. What a great opportunity OU has — and is using — to teach Ford to hang onto the ball. Interceptions happen. That’s part of the passing game. Fumbles do not. They can be prevented. David: “Some of life’s ironies is wishing for something, then getting it. Landry has been vindicated, despite sometimes losing his compass, backpedaling to the opponents’ end zone. He did possess an arm that could light up the scoreboard and wheels that got him in trouble. We now have wheels but no arm. Where do I go to change my wish?” Rome. Or Kansas City. I hear both have a lot of fountains. Speaking of which, I wonder what happened to the old wishing well that was in the Midway stop at Stroud on the Turner Turnpike, back in the ‘70s. Haven’t thought of it in years. And that store – was it a Stuckey’s? – has been gone for decades. Chad: “I am an accountant by trade, not a professional football analyst/coach/player/etc. I say that because I am under no illusions about my ability to diagnose the minute details of what it must take to coach a major FBS school. I can appreciate the fact that Stoops lies daily to the media/public. I think Stoops needs to take a few steps back and re-evaluate his QB play — 137 yards, against Kansas is not OK. Stoops on Bell: ‘He played OK. I still believe he can play better. We had some missed reads and a few missed opportunities on deep balls.’ What is OK about that? Have we fallen so far that we appreciate a guy who doesn’t throw three picks? I am not advocating Bell be benched, but I am curious if he is truly the best man for this offense. All things considered equal, if a guy cannot pass the ball (Bell has not shown he is effective, Knight was absolutely horrendous), then why not put the guy out there who can run for 150-200 yards a game? I don’t watch practice, but I really feel like 2013 will be a lost year so to speak with a ton of opportunity lost if we do not get a QB in place. Are the other guys so bad Bob is not willing to put them out there under the lights? I just don’t get it. It is very disheartening to watch. I feel like our coaches are not giving the team the best chance to win. Is it up to Bob or Josh?” Well, it’s up to Stoops. I guess my response is, what do you want Stoops to do? You said Bell was not effective but that Knight was absolutely horrendous. Here’s why you don’t put out there a guy who can run for 150-200 yards and can’t throw. TCU. That’s why. TCU. I promise you, Trevone Boykin is a heck of a running QB. But he can’t throw a lick, and TCU’s offense is stuck in quicksand. You’ve got to throw some. I’d say Bell is the best man for the job, but heck, I don’t know. I’m saying that when you don’t have good options, you go with the best option. Not just a different option. Burl: “Keith Ford pulled after a fumble; Blake Bell makes dozens of poor decisions in a game and keeps his job. Bell’s poor ball security, poor decisions and lack of ability are a liability. Kansas basically dared him to throw it and he couldn’t do it. He is awful. He doesn’t know when to get rid of the ball and he misses open receivers; worst quarterback since Justin Fuentes.” A tailback who carries the ball three times is a lot different than a quarterback who handles the ball every down. Ford wasn’t benched for poor decisions. He was benched for not taking care of the ball. And I’d say Jake Sills and Eric Moore were worse than Bell. Timothy: “I just watched Kevin Wilson and IU put up 47 on Michigan and there were guys open all over the field. A couple of fluke interceptions stalled IU drives or it could’ve been both teams in the 60s. How come OU’s athletes can’t get consistent separation? Or is there separation and I don’t see it on TV? Two, how serious is the dispute shown on TV between Mike Stoops and Montgomery? Looked very awkward (to put it kindly) from here.” Interesting observation. I’m not sure OU has great receivers. Shepard and Saunders are quality slot guys, but does OU have difference-makers at split end? I don’t see it. As far as the dispute, Mike Stoops has been jawing with colleagues for decades. I don’t read too much into it. Ed: “An interesting thought occurred to me, so I checked on it. I remembered that Kliff Kingsbury used to hold the record for most completions in a game on Owen Field. Until Landry Jones broke it. Kingsbury completed 41 against us in 2000, when we won 27-13. (Josh Heupel held the OU record at 37, against Baylor in 1999, when we won 41-10.) Jones broke the record by completing 46 in 2012 vs. OSU as we won 51-48 in OT. I had thought of how ironic it would be this week if the guy holding the stadium record brought his team in here, and his team would be throwing it all over the lot and some freshman QB might break his coach’s record. But although Kliff held the record from 2000 until 2012, it didn’t quite work out that way, because of Jones’ mark. And I hope Tech’s quarterback doesn’t set a new high Saturday.” Here’s what I remember about Kingsbury. He was the best of Mike Leach’s quarterbacks until Graham Harrell. It seemed like every year, Tech’s quarterbacks were outstanding, just not quite as good as the year before. Kingsbury 1999-02. B.J. Symons in 2003. Sonny Cumbie in 2004. Cody Hodges 2005. Graham Harrell 2006-08. Taylor Potts 2009. A Tech fan might correct me on the descending effectiveness from Kingsbury to Harrell. But it also strikes me that the one-year QB reign in Lubbock wasn’t the preferred. When Leach went with a younger guy, Kingsbury and Harrell, they developed into quite the quarterback. Isaiah: “It’s clear at this point Bob Stoops and the coaching staff are sticking with Bell as the starter no matter his struggles in the passing and even running game. Combined with the decision to not give Trevor Knight and/or Kendal Thompson any opportunities to even bring a change of pace to the offense. Given the history of Bob Stoops’ decision-making around choosing a starting QB, barring any injury, Bell is going to be the starter the rest of this season and next year, correct? After this season is over, if anyone even questions if Knight or Thompson will get the chance to start, Bob will point out that Bell has all the experience from this year and earlier. I assume that Bob is not a short-sighted individual, so with that, he has to be thinking next year will be the year OU is a strong challenger for the Big 12 title and even more, right? Why else would he be banking on a starter who clearly is still learning how to develop his passing game, while only having 1.5 seasons of eligibility left over two guys who have more years left play? Seems strange to me that the OU coaching staff has not even given Knight any opportunity to get experience along side Bell. If Trevor Knight won the starting job at the beginning of the season over Bell, how is it that Knight is now relegated to waiting until he’s a redshirt junior to get another chance to start?” Stoops’ track record is solid. He doesn’t go messing with quarterbacks. If he makes a switch – Paul Thompson pulled after one game, Trevor Knight pulled after seven quarters – he doesn’t wobble afterwards. But I would guess that Stoops re-opens the quarterback derby in the offseason. I don’t know why he wouldn’t. As you said, OU looks good for 2014. Lots of returnees. I think the Sooners will be very good in ’14, if they can get some decent quarterbacking. Is Stoops hoping that Bell blossoms? I doubt it. Seems like a stronger play would be Knight and hope he blossoms. Younger. More room to grow. COWBOYS Kevin: “On Saturday when the Cowboys hosted the Horned Frogs, a true freshman kicker for Oklahoma State missed a short attempt at a field goal as the clock expired, ending the first half of play, I heard a noise that made my stomach turn. Boos. Yes, boos. Would you please write a scathing blog about how stupid this is, reach deep into your cerebral cortex and find words that will release the darkest deepest passion to express just how ridiculous this is and how bad it makes me feel. I have no problem with fans hating on coaches or game officials, they are professionals and get paid to perform at the highest level, but when people hate on a young man that is trying his heart out to do the very best, it kills me inside, I remember watching OU football and Cale Gundy getting booed at Owen Field, it was terrible then and even more terrible to hear those same idiots at my alma mater doing the same thing.” Sorry, I’m not going to come down too hard on the fans. The kicking has gotten ridiculous at OSU. I don’t necessarily believe they were booing Ben Grogan. I think they were booing an organization that has let some details slip. Sam: “How can someone (Clint Chelf) win a starting job the final five or so games of 2012 plus workouts through spring and summer, only to lose it after six plays in the first game of the season?” I don’t think Chelf won the job in 2012. Everyone else was hurt. Things went well, so they stuck with him when Lunt and Walsh returned. I think Walsh won the job during the off-season, and for whatever reason, Gundy wanted to start Chelf but clearly planned to bring back Walsh quickly. I think Gundy mishandled the entire quarterback deal. Not giving enough love to Lunt. Not starting Walsh when obviously that’s who they wanted to start. Those things, I don’t understand. BUM PHILLIPS David: “I read with great enjoyment your article on Bum Phillips. Bum was one of my favorite sports figures of all time. I lived in Houston back in the ’80s when Bum coached the Oilers and Earl Campbell was their running back. I loved to hear ‘Bumisms’ every Sunday and watch Earl tear up defenses. I hadn’t seen or heard of Bum for many years when I ran in to him in a Delta Crown Room in Atlanta about 15 years ago. I was standing in line in the Crown Rom waiting to get my ticket changed when I noticed the person in front of me. He wearing cowboy garb (minus the hat, of course) and had Bum’s patented flattop haircut. After trying to inconspicuously see his face and confirm he was who I thought he was I finally just gave up and tapped him on the shoulder and asked rather sheepishly, ‘Are you Bum Phillips?’ His reply in his best East Texas accent was, ‘Last time I checked.’ From there I told him how he and Earl Campbell had given me some of my greatest thrills in sports when I lived in Houston. He was surprised to hear me say that and replied, ‘Really?’ He then invited me to come over to a small table and talk to him. I jumped at the chance. We sat and chatted for about 20 minutes. He was as easy to talk to as my best friend and eager to know as much about me as I was eager to know about him. As we wrapped up our discussion I asked Bum what he was doing now. In typical Bum fashion he looked at me and said, ‘Nothin’, and I don’t start that ‘til noon!’ The sports world was blessed by having someone as down to earth as Bum and he will be missed.” That’s very much like my one encounter with Bum. Nothing but a charming guy who was all substance. Jay: “Perhaps it’s a sign I’m getting old, but I thoroughly enjoyed taking a stroll down memory lane with you this morning. Growing up in the shadow of Texas Stadium (’76 grad of Irving MacArthur a few years before the Boz), of course I was a Cowboys fan. But that didn’t stop me from following the Oilers, especially when this colorful coach in the Stetson came to Houston. He may not have worn his hat in the Astrodome, but even AstroTurf wasn’t safe from his tobacco juice! It never seemed to bother him to play second fiddle to Tom Landry. What’d be the point? He got so much from his players and always gave a great one liner to punch up a story.” Now Bum is gone and so is Texas Stadium. THUNDER Rich: Nickname for Steven Adams. How does Kid Kiwi sound to you? Sounds like a boxer. Or an Elvis movie. I say we keep working.
