I'm enjoying a week free of basketball ... because hoops will get hot and heavy beginning next week with two straight weeks of tournaments

November 26, 2014

I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving, and I hope you're enjoying your week break — at least if you work for the public schools of LeFlore County. I know I am as this is a rare hoop-free week for me, not counting the Carl Albert State College teams playing in holiday weekend events.
After this week ends, basketball will indeed get hot and heavy in a big way with back-to-back tournament weeks, and the other six football schools — Poteau, Heavener, Panama, Pocola, Spiro and Talihina — beginning their basketball seasons either next week or the following week.

Empty seats reflect 'lost season' for OU despite routing Kansas at home; Perine has record day in Sooners' romp over Jayhawks

November 25, 2014

The announced crowd was 84,908 at Saturday's Kansas-Oklahoma game at Owen Field, but it was clear that was all paid, not actual number of bodies at the game.
Samje Perine was the story Saturday in OU's 44-7 win over KU. It wasn't the first time he had a big game. He was the highlight the previous week against Texas Tech and an early season win for the Sooners (8-3 overall, 5-3 in Big 12 play) against West Virginia, but it will go down as most memorable.
