I like are chances against everyone on the schedule IF we come to play each week. Big challenge for Tom is going to be getting them motivated to play against a seemingly lesser talented football team.

Collin Johnson announces he is coming back.

Thats big, big news. Now, we need LJH to come back to form the most dangerous WR combo in the conference next year.

As good as LJH was this year, I think he's just getting warmed up really.

OU finds its new DC.

Former Ohio State co-DC Alex Grinch joins Oklahoma coaching staff as defensive coordinator

This would be a huge hire for Lincoln Riley as he continues to build Oklahoma into a title contender

Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley has landed a major hire at defensive coordinator. Former Ohio State's star co-defensive coordinator Alex Grinch will take over the Sooners' defense for 2019, the school announced on Friday evening. News of the hire was first reported on Friday by Bruce Feldman of The Athletic. There were rumblings of late that Riley, who fired Mike Stoops midseason following a loss to Texas, has been eyeing Grinch for some time

"This is a unique opportunity at one of the premier institutions under elite leadership," said Grinch. "Oklahoma is in the top one percent. There's no faking it in this business. You're either it or you're not. Oklahoma is one of those programs."

This is an absolute home run hire for Riley. Oklahoma's defense, of course, was historically bad in the College Football Playoff era. Following the Orange Bowl loss to Alabama, the Sooners ended the season ranked 101st in points allowed per game, 102nd in yards per play allowed, 107th in points per drive allowed, 121st in turnovers forced and dead last in red zone touchdown percentage. 

Yikes. But there's good news ahead ... 

 

Grinch should alleviate the number problems. In Grinch, Oklahoma would get a proven defensive mind that laid the groundwork for Washington State'srise in the Pac-12 North division. Prior to Grinch's arrival in 2015, the Cougars gave up 38.6 points per game, 10th in the Pac-12. By 2016, that number rose to 26.4 points per game. In 2017, it rose again to 25.8 points per game. This past season, with Grinch's fingerprints still evident, the Cougars allowed only 23.3 points per game. Washington State has also been one of the better teams in turnovers gained in the Pac-12 over the past three years, ranking in the top four in each of the past four years. 

Riley needed to nail this hire, and he did. There's no denying that Riley is quickly becoming one of college football's premier coaches. He's led the Sooners to back-to-back Big 12 titles, playoff appearances and coached consecutive Heisman winners in Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray. Since arriving as offensive coordinator in 2015, his offenses have finished in the top five nationally in points per game and No. 1 in yards per play in back-to-back years. What's been holding him back from achieving even more, obviously, has been the defense. It's a problem that requires a long-term vision to fix, and part of that was hiring a top-flight coordinator. Riley nailed that part of the equation, and Oklahoma just got better on that side of the ball. This is the hire that can launch Riley into the upper-most echelon of college football coaches as he makes the program his own. 

The next step is recruiting. While a change in leadership was necessary on defense, the fact of the matter is Oklahoma also needs to revamp its recruiting on that side of the ball. About half of Oklahoma's 2019 signing class so far -- ranked seventh nationally, per 247Sports --  is made up of defensive players, and half of the blue-chip prospects are on defense. Continuing to win on the recruiting trail defensively to fill out the two-deep is the only way Grinch's hire really takes off.

REPORT: Neal Brown Named New West Virginia Football Head Coach

West Virginia football had another solid season in 2018 with head coach Dana Holgorsen and quarterback Will Grier at the helm. But after Grier declared for the NFL Draft and WVU lost an ugly one to Syracuse in the Camping World Bowl, Holgorsen ended his eight-season tenure with the Mountaineers to take the Houston head coaching vacancy. 

 

With West Virginia getting left high and dry by its former head coach, the Mountaineers have reportedly gone South and snagged Neal Brown from Troy and the Sun Belt.

The other two potential choices to replace Holgorsen were likely current West Virginia associate head coach and defensive coordinator, Tony Gibson and Cincinnati head coach, Luke Fickell. Fickell appeared to be more of a long shot since it's was unclear if he has actually been interviewed or not, while Gibson appeared to be staying with the program regardless of a role change.

From ESPN:

Sources to ESPN: Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich is expected to join the Ohio State staff for the 2019 season. Yurcich's title is still to be determined but likely will involve him coaching quarterbacks, a group new Ohio State coach Ryan Day oversaw for the past two seasons. Yurcich, 43, has spent the past six seasons at Oklahoma State. He grew up in the Cleveland area. Todd Monken, a former Oklahoma State OC, could return to replace Yurcich but also has NFL opportunities. North Texas OC Graham Harrell could be another option for Mike Gundy.

 

The Jets are interested in Baylor's HC Matt Rhule.

Well thought of OU LB coach Tim Kish has retired.

Just glad we're finally off that coaching carousel (I hope).  Stability is so important.

I know we lose a pretty significant amount of starters this offseason so I pose this question to some of you more seasoned gentlemen. 

Will we be able to effectively reload at all the positions in question? 

I think my biggest concern at this point is the Corner position. In this conference, it seems like every team we play has elite WR's and Slot receivers that can absolutely burn a DB if he's not on top of his game. Boyd had some really great games but he also had a few games where he got picked on big time. Will we be able to field some guys that can put a receiver on an island for an entire game?

I think both Anthony Cook and Jalen Green are capable of being shut down corners.  And with the amount of playing time Cook received, I think we can expect a very good year from him...

    • Rivals Camp Series Dallas: Prospects talk Texas schools, coaches   Rob Cassidy and Sam Spiegelman Rivals.com COPPELL, Tex. - From Austin to Dallas to College Station to Denton, the state of Texas is home to a whopping 12 FBS teams. So at this weekend’s Rivals Camp Series stop in Dallas, Rivals.com decided to survey some Lone Star State prospects on the in-state programs. Below are a number of answers to four questions dealing with colleges in the Lone Star State.   Which in-state school will win a national title first, and why?           Jimbo Fisher AP Images “Either Texas or Texas A&M. Those are the programs on the rise right now. The way they both performed last year and everything.” -  EJ Smith ***** "Texas. They have been racking up the points the last year. They can do the same thing this year." -  Zeriah Beason ***** "Texas A&M. Their recruiting class was really strong. I think it was third behind Georgia and 'Bama. The guys they're bringing in are top-level recruits. So with them in the mix, with coach (Jimbo) Fisher, if they can get a quarterback that team will be set up." -  Ken Seals ***** "Texas, because last year they blew everyone's minds winning 10 games. I just think they're gonna get better from here on out, just keep getting better." -  Tommy Brockermeyer ***** ‘’Texas A&M. I mean, they have Jimbo Fisher up there establishing things.” -  Jalen Kimber ***** "Probably A&M. I like their recruiting class the past couple of years. Texas had the best chance, but I think they lost a lot of talent. I think this year it'll be Texas A&M, but it's a close race." -  Darius Snow ***** "Texas. They're a young team that beat Georgia last year, also." -  Lorando Johnson ***** "Texas or Baylor. Baylor because two years ago, they were 1-11 and then 7-6. It shows what they're building over there. Texas just won the conference, so they're building something over there. They got five-star recruits, so I'm expecting a lot from them." -  Jaqwondis Burns ***** “Probably Texas. They have a great culture and a great coaching staff. I feel like they’re the up-and-coming team.” -  Korie Black Which in-state school will have the best record this year, and why?       “I don’t know. I don’t want to choose between Texas and Texas A&M, so I’ll just say one of them.” – Smith ***** "Nobody can beat Texas right now. They're unbelievably talented right now at a scary rate, so I got my faith in Teas right now." - Beason ***** "Texas A&M. Coming off a great game against LSU, it was a good turning point for the program, especially in Jimbo Fisher's time there. Going into next season, I think they'll build off what they accomplished last year." - Seals ***** "Texas. They're just getting a lot better, a lot tougher. Their last recruiting class and the class three years straight, they have a bunch of players there and they're about to be really good this year." – Brockermeyer ***** “A&M just because Jimbo,” - Kimber ***** "Baylor is on the come-up. TCU is always scary, especially with  Jalen Reagor . He's the best of the best. If A&M does well in SEC play, though, then Texas A&M." - Snow ***** "Texas, but only because Texas A&M is in the SEC." - Johnson ***** "Texas. Off the season they had from last year with 10 wins, they had a great season and it's hard not to continue that." – Burns ***** “I’m giving this one to Texas, too. They have been building up and getting ready. This might be the year.” – Black Which in-state school's head coach seems the coolest, and why?           Tom Herman AP Images “I think coach Jimbo (Fisher). He brings energy and cares about his players.” – Smith ***** "Matt Rhule. They're all cool in their own way, but I'd give it to Baylor's coach." - Beason ***** "I really like Tom Herman, but I feel like being a quarterback, to play for Coach Fisher is something special. You learn from him and the guys that he's put in the league, but Herman is up there, too." – Seals ***** “Tom Herman. He’s just cool. He loves his players and takes care of those guys.” - Kimber ***** "Jimbo. I went to TCU not too long ago and coach (Gary) Patterson is cool, but I remember when coach Fisher came to the school during basketball season, chopping it up and he's just a cool dude." - Snow ***** "Jimbo. He's a laid-back dude. At least with me he's real laid back." - Johnson ***** "Texas. That dude (Herman) is straightforward. That dude is all about business." – Burns ***** “I haven’t met a lot of the head coaches in Texas but probably Gary Patterson. I like the way he is. He just seems cool.” – Black Which in-state school does the best job recruiting Texas kids?     “Right now, A&M, but I’m just going to say that because that’s how it is with me, you know” - Smith ***** "Baylor, because of coach (Joey) McGuire. He's been in the area for a long time. He coached at Cedar Hill and knows the ins and outs and the recruits in this area the best." - Beason ***** "I'm not hearing from a lot of them, but I feel like Texas does a good job of keeping the guys at home. If you get an offer from Texas and you're from Texas, that's where you want to be. I feel like Texas does a good job of keeping guys at home." – Seals ***** “Tom Herman for sure. Everyone down here really likes him.” – Kimber ***** "Texas or Texas A&M. It's always them two every time for who gets the best Texas recruits. It's always Texas or Texas A&M." - Brockermeyer ***** "Probably Texas or Texas A&M. They're just both family dudes. Coach Herman, coach Fisher, they really sell the best in Texas to stay home." - Snow ***** "A&M. I see them in every school in Texas trying to recruit somebody." - Johnson ***** "Texas. They just got that five-star wide receiver ( Bru McCoy ) and that says it all. They got someone all the way from California, and I've never heard of anyone else doing that." - Burns ***** “It’s either A&M or Texas. I think maybe Texas, because of how many they bring down to campus. When they bring you down there, they make you feel like you are family.” – Black   https://n.rivals.com/news/rcs-dallas-prospects-weigh-in-on-texas-schools-coaches-1
    • I would probably go higher with Watts. My daughter is a Sr. at Little Elm and talks to him everyday. He pretty high on Texas let her tell it. She says he flirts with her all the time. She's gangsta tho and told him that she won't even consider a date with him if he doesn't pick Texas lol
