    U40: Are we worried about the offensive line?

    U40: Are we worried about the offensive line?

    The gang is back together talking spring football and this time we're really focused on the offensive line and how that might be affected some of the reports we're hearing about the quarterback position. How much concern do we have heading into the offseason? How much concern should you have if the line doesn't look great in the spring game? The Sooners are hot on the recruiting trail once again and Josh is here for all the latest, including the commitment of Maliek Hawkins just before we started the podcast. And what about the transfer portal? We all have very strong opinions about where the Sooners need to go and what they need to start doing (tampering) in the portal. The softball team is coming off their first series loss since 1907 and Bob is here to update how much of a terror Patty Gasso will be moving forward. Porter Moser also has no players on his roster but we'll talk about how aggressive the Sooners are going to be in the portal for men's hoops. Plenty of football to digest in this one.
    The full rundown follows below:
    00:00 - Welcome back to the U40! 
    8:00 - 2025 Frisco Emerson CB and Sooner legacy Maliek Hawkins commits to Oklahoma
    12:30 - Sooners secondary filling up in 2025
    27:00 - Tough questions of spring ball 
    42:00 - OU defense *should* be very good; depends on interior DL

    U40: Position breakdowns after three practice viewings

    U40: Position breakdowns after three practice viewings

    The whole crew is back for another thorough breakdown of spring football camp. We're just off of our third viewing of the spring and we're also full of some scrimmage intel as well. Troy Everett is lost for the spring and the early part of fall camp next season. Where do the Sooners go from here? And what do we make of the offensive line so far. There have been few glowing reviews coming out of camp and what we've seen makes it hard to tell how much of a concern this unit really is. But other positions look like they are receiving some upgrades, like on the defensive line where David Stone is getting strong reviews from Brent Venables. We also talk about the buzz surrounding true freshman QB Michael Hawkins. From what we've seen so far, we believe it. Bob joins in and we talk about OU President Joe Harroz and his "threat" to move Oklahoma basketball to another city if the city of Norman doesn't come through with a proposed entertainment district. We also breakdown what is happening with Porter Moser's roster and where he goes after losing more players this week. Josh is here for your recruiting updates and it's a huge weekend for softball at Texas and baseball in Bedlam.
    The full rundown follows below:
    00:00 - Welcome back to the U40! 
    11:20 - Troy Everett out for spring ball 
    16:00 - Michael Hawkins has impressed 
    21:00 - Interior DL/Defensive end talk 
    48:00 - President Harroz gets a little wild with the OU Daily
     59:00 - Portal Moser has his work cut out
    1:10:00 - HS Recruiting w/ Josh 
    1:20:00 - Big weekend for Stickball

    U40: It's DeMarco Murray chaos during the pod

    U40: It's DeMarco Murray chaos during the pod

    It's been a little Porter Moser heavy with his press conference the other day. It got a lot more bizarre for those that watched Virginia play last night. But we're going football heavy as Josh has had back-to-back weekends of watching OU prospects in person at Under Armour Dallas and Houston. And we're also diving into what the latest Kevin Sperry movement could mean for his commitment to OU. We actually put Josh on the spot and ask him if Sperry winds up at OU. We were also blown away at the footage of 2026 RB Jonathan Hatton in Houston. And as we started the pod there was worry that DeMarco Murray might be stolen away by Ohio State. As we were halfway through the pod we got word that Murray had made a decision and was staying with OU. Bob is also here for some hoops talk and what Porter is going to have to do in the offseason so the end of this season doesn't send the program spiraling in a negative direction. Spring is never lacking for action. And that's without football practicing this week due to spring break.
    The full rundown follows below:
    0:00 - Welcome back to the U40! Is DeMarco Murray going to Ohio State? 
    16:00 - Under Armour Houston recap 
    43:00 - BREAKING: DeMarco is staying at Oklahoma
    55:00 - Kevin Sperry on the move for his senior season 
    1:03:00 - Hoops … GROSS! DISAPPOINTING!

It gives us a peak into what weekends the staff is setting up for big recruiting weekends. OU heads into the Big 12 tournament down some important bodies and the women put up a dud in the Big 12 Tourney. Little softball talk with Bob and baseball talk with Eddie.

Enjoy listening but…

Not a fan of Eddie and George always using the Lord’s name in vain. Come on. Have some respect.
