Top Diamondbacks prospect Archie Bradley: big OU Sooners fan

archie-bradley

As we’re just two weeks away from the MLB Trade Deadline, we’re looking at some of the biggest MILB prospect names that will be brought up by MLB GMs. Not saying any of these guys will be traded, but all of them will be talked about. Some are actually on the table; others are not. And yes, watching Low A baseball is WAY BETTER than watching the ESPYs. No question.

Archie Bradley was the seventh overall pick by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 2011 MLB Draft. He was also committed to the University of Oklahoma to play both baseball and football. Quite a tough decision to make, Sooners or D’Backs?  Rather Bubba Starlingesque.

Bradley picked the Diamond. He’s currently with the Mobile BayBears. Archie Bradley is rated #1 in the Diamondbacks system, #20 overall in MLB and the #10 RH Pitcher.

Notre Dame Football and Brian Kelly: How does this story end?

Notre Dame Stadium

Halfway through his second season at the pressure-packed helm of Notre Dame football, Brian Kelly has experienced horrible tragedy and made almost every mistake imaginable.

From the death of Declan Sullivan to horrible public admission that the players he recruited were on a different level than those he inherited, Kelly has done a lot in creating the minefield he has to navigate daily.

After finishing last season with a four-game winning streak and a lopsided bowl victory over one-time-rival Miami in the Sun Bowl, a lot was expected of the 2011 Fighting Irish.

State of Oklahoma Football Reaches Zenith; Sooners & Cowboys Rollin

“Texas forever?” Actually, it’s not the Lone Star State, but the smaller border state to the north that is currently on top of the college football world right now. The Sooner state has never seen this much of a boomtown for winning football as they do right now.

Both the Oklahoma Sooners and Oklahoma State Cowboys are winning big, and doing it with powerful, exciting aerial attacks. Oklahoma is a tiny state, with one professional sports franchise (Thunder from the NBA) and only three big name college sports teams. (if you count OSU and Tulsa as big names).

It’s safe to say this the first time both schools have been ranked in the top 7. Sooners #1, Ok. St. #7 and their rivalry bedlam this year will undoubtedly be the biggest in the series history.

#1 Oklahoma Sooners vs. #5 Florida State Seminoles: Brutally Honest Game Preview

sterger

With top-ranked Oklahoma visiting fifth-ranked Florida State, we have our first de facto in season playoff game. Since college football doesn’t have a playoff system, and really a joke of a postseason when you think about it, the regular season becomes single elimination playoffs. Because you need to be undefeated to even have a chance to play for a national title.

The national spotlight will shine on Tallahassee, Fla., Saturday night (7pm CT) as two of the top teams in the nation but heads. EJ Manuel and the No. 5-ranked Florida State Seminoles (2-0) will welcome Landry Jones and the No. 1-ranked Oklahoma Sooners (1-0) to Doak S. Campbell Stadium.

Manuel and the Seminoles, averaging 509.5 yards of total offense and 48 points per game, have outscored their opponents 96-10 at home thus far. In the Sooners’ season opener, Jones threw for 375 yards on 35 completions while helping Oklahoma to 663 yards of total offense.

Last season, Oklahoma, which holds a 5-1 advantage in the series, took a 47-17 win over Florida State.

Oklahoma, Oklahoma State to Join Pac 12?

sooners hot chicks

If you’ve seen the ESPN 30 for 30 “Pony Excess” about the SMU Mustangs and their receiving of the college football death penalty in the 1980s, you might have noticed former NCAA investigator Dan Beebee. In that role, he truly was a great. In his role as a conference commissioner, he is an absolute train wreck. The Big 12 is utterly imploding, and there’s nothing he can do to stop it.

Oklahoma will apply for membership to the Pac-12 before the end of the month, and Oklahoma State is expected to follow suit, a source close to OU’s administration told Orangebloods.com.
