    U40: Headed to Morgantown, Sooners trying to impress again

    U40: Headed to Morgantown, Sooners trying to impress again

    The Unofficial 40 returns for a holiday sized edition and we had plenty to talk about. Josh and Bob finally get to weigh in on Bedlam, we breakdown the win and look ahead to West Virginia. Plenty of talk about the randomness that is Bookie as well. We also talk about the latest on the recruiting front and why things are so different this year in terms of info. Carey might be on the verge of a mental breakdown because of zoom interviews but the news about 'Coonsie' the walking racoon had everyone very excited. There's a lot to digest as we get ready for a big week of Thanksgiving and football, and even basketball as Lon Kruger and the boys get the season started this week as well.

    The full rundown is below:

    0:00 - Carey is sick of Zoom & the North End Zone is the new West Bank
    24:00 - Bookie
    35:00 - Wrapping up Bedlam with Josh & Bob
    50:00 - Recruiting
    1:11:20 - Hoops starts Wednesday
    1:23:00 - West Virginia ahead; Big 12 undecided and getting interesting

    U40: Bedlam is a chance to legitimize the OU offense

    U40: Bedlam is a chance to legitimize the OU offense

    It's been a two week wait but Bedlam is finally here. Or will it be? The guys give the latest on where things stand with COVID and injuries. Will Austin Stogner be available for OSU? Lincoln Riley says Spencer Rattler is back to 100%. While everyone believes OU's defensive line versus OSU's offensive line is the biggest advantage in this game, can Spencer Rattler finally prove he's taken the next step against a very good OSU defense? This isn't TCU, Texas Tech or Kansas. This will be a real challenge for Lincoln Riley on the OU offense. We're missing Josh this week because he's moving so no big recruiting segment. This one is all about Bedlam. Carey, Eddie and Bob bring it home in this week's Unofficial 40.

    The full rundown follows below:

    00:00 - Hello and welcome
    13:54 - What's the injury/COVID situation for Bedlam?
    19:30 - Buyer beware in Bedlam?
    30:00 - Getting Jadon Haselwood more involved/OU's running game headed in right direction
    40:00 - Around the CFB World
    58:00 - Hoops tips off next week

    U40: Bedlam needed this bye week. But OU's DL vs. OSU's OL is a problem

    U40: Bedlam needed this bye week. But OU's DL vs. OSU's OL is a problem

    Why do women make men buy new mattresses when they get married? What deep dark secret is Carey Murdock holding that makes his neighborhood hate him? Did Eddie kill his barber? Also, it's a bye week and this week's slate of Big 12 games is not very good. But next week it is on and title matchups could be decided between Iowa State, OU, OSU and Kansas State! It was a little slow on the football front with no football this week, but even though Josh can't stop buying houses and moving, he did give us a breakdown of a recent big-time recruiting trip to St. Louis and might have people concerned about one of OU's biggest defensive line commitments. It's also national signing day for Lon Kruger and OU hoops. Bob kind of joins from the road where he was headed to see Bijan Cortes.

    The full rundown follows below:

    00:00 - Hello and welcome. It's National (Hoops) Signing Day. OU signed Bijan Cortes and CJ Noland.
    13:00 - FOOTBALL, FOOTBALL, FOOTBALL
    24:00 - Okay seriously back to football
    32:00 - Josh still loves Tom Luginbill
    49:00 - Bedlam is going to be HUGE
    1:13:00 - Recapping a visit to see 2022 5-star WR Luther Burden + Recruiting notes

    U40: Perkins and Stevenson add lots of muscle for stretch run

    U40: Perkins and Stevenson add lots of muscle for stretch run

    On this week's Unofficial 40 podcast we go back and breakdown how big the addtitions of Ronnie Perkins and Rhamondre Stevenson can be for the Sooners down the final stretch of the season. Is OU in the driver's seat? Maybe not completely. But things are looking up for OU's chances to play in the Big 12 title game. And it appears Spencer Rattler and the OU offense have developed a little bit of swagger coming out of Lubbock. It's been a different type of season, but OU is looking like a complete team for the first time all season and one of the more complete teams we've seen in years if the defense continues to build. The guys have been out on the recruiting trail quite a bit as well. With coaches unable to go out and see kids, we're pretty much all you get from in-person scouting. Josh and Bob talk about their recent trips including a big one coming up for Josh this weekend. It's Kansas week, which means we're drinking more than usual. Well, maybe the elections had something to do with that.

    The full rundown is below:

    OPEN - We all pretty much got drunk and stared at a map last night for hours on end.
    12:06 - You can start listening NOW; Ronnie Perkins and Rhamondre Stevenson HAVE BEEN FREED
    22:00 - Revisiting the happenings in Lubbock
    46:12 - SpeedD is here. It's real. And it's sexy.
    1:02:53 - Recruiting segment
    1:15:00 - RIP Billy Tubbs

    U40: Looking for a back-to-back defensive gem in Lubbock

    U40: Looking for a back-to-back defensive gem in Lubbock

    On this week's edition of the Unofficial 40 podcast we take a look back at the players standing out most on the defensive side of the ball. Is Isaiah Thomas becoming a legit NFL prospect? And how much has he been hiding some superior athletic ability? We also talk about the upcoming matchup with Texas Tech and the expectations for this OU team. We're all going to be paying attention to see if the defense can put another solid performance on tape. And what could the return of Rhamondre Stevenson mean for OU's running game and the emergence of T.J. Pledger? It might not be such an easy transition for Stevenson and the OU offense. We hit up the recruiting trail and talk about the Sooners newest commitment Tayln Shettron and what we've seen lately out on the high school circuit. And what does the recent decommitment of Caleb Johnson mean for recruiting going forward? Also, what we know on the latest with #FreeThe3 and when is it OK to start putting up your Christmas tree? All this and more on the Unofficial 40.

    The full rundown follows below:

    00:00 - Surviving an Ice Storm
    6:00 - Josh reviews TCU ... Hey OU's defensive line is good
    24:00 - What to do with Bookie
    29:15 - OU slot WR problems?

    U40: OU has a major chance to take the next step at TCU

    The gang is all here after surviving a bye week and we've talked all we can talk about the Texas win. It's time to move on to TCU and the expectations that have been reset coming out of the overtime win over Texas. Can Spencer Rattler keep building chemistry with receivers like Theo Wease, Marvin Mims, Austin Stogner and Drake Stoops? Can the offensive line continue to run the ball effectively even if Rhamondre Stevenson doesn't come back until Texas Tech? Can the defense build off of their emerging playmakers like Perrion Winfrey, Woodi Washington, Nik Bonitto and Isaiah Thomas? And are the Sooners expecting another huge commitment this weekend for Lincoln Riley's offense? We've talked to the players and coaches on both sides of the ball this week, all our media interviews are over. Here's all the latest to get you ready for the Sooners as they get back in action against TCU this weekend.

    The full rundown follows below:

    00:00 - Hello and welcome back
    17:25 - Suspensions and more

Eddie swallows

Ed came over and let me give him a facial once... it was a little dry, but I’ll give 5 stars for the effort.

Jon Doe's Dad ,

They definitely talk about football sometimes.

I love this pod. Bob is the dad figure that keeps everyone on track, Carey is the boss that everyone gets along with, Josh is the token Peyton Manning voice double, and Eddie has to be the love child of Joel Guy Jr. and Gene Belcher. Also they talk about football.

But seriously, thanks for the work you guys put in. I wouldn’t pick another OU podcast to listen to, but sometimes I do anyway.

Eddie stole my girlfriend

My girlfriend and I listened to the pod. She feel in love with Eddie and left me. She said she may never meet him but it gave her hope that there are people like him out there. Despite that, the pod is entertaining.
