The Sooners New Hype Video Gets Star Wars Twist
Alternate Title: Baker Mayfields biggest fan thinks he's a Jedi.
There have been an abnormally large amount of Earth-shattering changes to the OU football program since smoking Auburn in last seasons Sugar Bowl.
Bob Stoops retired/jumped ship... The core backfield of Joe Mixon, Dede Westbrook, and Samaje Perine all drafted into the NFL... And fans are looking to new, very young head coach Lincoln Riley and hoping for the best.
Baker Mayfield's decision to stay on as a Sooner for one more year is the only comforting news looking into the 2017 season. Of course, Baker has been in the news plenty since last season too.
I think it's safe to say that fans are on edge going into a 50/50 season. While we were comfortable with a dominant trio on offense that is no longer there... a love/hate relationship with a head coach that became OU's GOAT... and an uneasy shadow looming over a new, 'first-time' head coach in Lincoln Riley... It's fair to say that shadow deserves to bear a little weight. Stat for stat, OU is the greatest football program in history. Who would want to mess all that up?
