Forget for a second that Oklahoma faces GJ Kinne at the Golden Hurricane on September 3. Sometimes we don’t remember the fact that football players are people just like us. With stories from their past that make them who they are today. I know this is a Sooner blog, but GJ, best of luck to you in the future. I’m glad that it was God plan that you got your father back.
“Heeeeey, you remember how OU fought and bit and clawed and scratched its way back from down 17-3 to winning at Tennessee in double overtime last weekend? So wouldn’t it be a real kick in the head if they got upset by Tulsa at home?”
Oh and the scheduling gods made this an 11 a.m. game, so my consciousness at that hour may, or may not, be optimum.
One of the more unusual things about the Tulsa mascot is that it’s singular, not plural. This is THE Golden Hurricane, not one of many. I wonder if there’s a good Sporcle quiz about DI schools with singular mascots?
