SoonerScoop podcast: OU eliminating 'Brokelahoma' label

Bob Przybyloby:Bob Przybylo05/09/24


OU football knows what the team will look like in 2024. The transfer portal window is closed. Paperwork has been filed. Time to head to the summer.

And time for another Unofficial 40 podcast from SoonerScoop. Almost a week later, it’s still time to reflect back on what Damonic Williams picking the Sooners means now and might mean going forward.

The gang is here to recap it all, break down yet another commitment and so much more.

OU is in the game

You can’t win the game unless you’re in it. And when it comes to the NIL race, OU is officially no longer left behind.

There were other quiet victories in the last 12 months (like Jayden Jackson), but nothing as pronounced as like what occurred with Williams last Thursday.

A message to the rest of the SEC and college football that OU can compete with the big dogs. OU is one of the big dogs.

For all those that thought head coach Brent Venables would not adjust or adapt, those feelings are long gone as we enter the 2024 season.

The Sooners are a player and are staying consistent to their values. No doubt the NIL package had to be in the right ballpark, but to really win Williams, too? You needed that bond with Venables and Todd Bates. You need both sides of the equation.

Back to Carl Albert

Just set up shop at Midwest City (Okla.) Carl Albert. OU dips back into the Carl Albert waters to land yet another Titan.

Four-star defensive back Trystan Haynes announced his pledge to OU on Tuesday afternoon. Another example of Venables keeping the best OKPreps kids home and the third Titan for OU’s 2025 class.

McCuistion breaks down what that will mean and where OU stands in terms of the cornerback position for the 2025 class.

All that and all the banter you’ve come to expect from the Unofficial 40 podcast from SoonerScoop.
