Omg, can the LHN show other games besides 2008 OU/UT, 2006 USC/UT, or the 1969 game.  How about last years Texas Bowl or UT/OhioSt.  Just show some different ones.

You think someone from LHN reads this board.  They've shown different games now for about a week.  

I know, I just quoted myself.

Don't know where to put it really, but Kyler Murray was drafted No. 9 in the MLB draft. Would be stupid to risk all of that money by playing ball for blowU in the fall

I just seen that! SURLY he won’t go back to the Sooners. I’d hope Riley tells him he should go also. The longevity of his career will be much longer in baseball

If he’s smart then Murray will put the football down and go play the sport where he has more upside in and become a millionaire in the process.

Yea talk is Oakland said he could play football in the fall then farm club ball for 2019... as the head coach I’d hope Riley cares more about the kids future than 1 season of football...

Wonder what daddy Murray will have to say here.

Surely Oakland would not cough up a full signing bonus and allow him to play football this fall.

That’s what’s all over ESPN and Sooners brainiacs boards. I’m with you, waste of a pick if you don’t get him in right away

Dion Sanders did well in both MLB and NFL...I think he even once hit a home run in Yankee stadium and later scored a touchdown the same day. Aint but one Neon Dion however.

 

Switch to Bo Jackson....NFL rookie of the year or was it baseball?......Either way he was great at both......till he broke his hip in a football game....good bye either career.

 

Lets see....Bo was about 210 or 220....Kylee is about ....uh....well.....remember the carnival rides where they had Goofy holding out his arm and the sign said...if you are not at least this tall you cant ride?

well....the votes are in.....I read where Oakland is fine with him playing football and he said he is gonna play football. It doesnt matter what we think. I guess what everyone is counting on here is that he is hard to catch.

Oakland and Kyler already had a deal worked out. Murray will play football this fall and the baseball moving forward. Oakland will save a little on his signing and use that money to overpay players that fall later in the draft.

Kyler gets the best of both worlds. Will get life changing signing bonus. And gets to play one year of football. I always thought his first love was football but realized the money and upside is baseball. I think he played it smart.

    • We will see how good the pigs become. Morris was 14-22 at SMU and 2-10 last year with Arkansas. He's like Kliff. He got promotion with a losing record.     Arkansas masterfully trolls Texas, Tom Herman following commitment of Jalen Catalon   https://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/arkansas-football/arkansas-razorbacks-texas-longhorns-troll-jalen-catalon-announcement-commitment/
    • This was never in doubt for Arkansas. Morris and his coaches have put together an insane class considering a 2-10 record that probably was worse than even that record indicates. 
    • Yeah, Sopsher was just a name to throw out and get this train rolling.  I figure he is LSU or Bama bound.  I'm good with the staff turning their attention to 2020.  It just feels slow these days.  I like the early signing period, but it sucks in mid-January.
    • JB, I'm afraid he's right. Football is becoming less popular and has less participation than its had in years. Along the eastern seaboard and even midwest, public schools are cancelling their football programs due to cost and lack of interest. Its alarming. I know its hard to imagine being from Texas, but elsewhere, its reality. This past season I watched a ton of clips from our California recruits. Even the big Mater Dei vs Westlake game was a half-filled stadium, so public interest seems to dropping as well.
    • Point to PD for the clever and humorous GIF. I guess we'll see in time.
