August 27, 2009

I have a new post on how to beat OU up on Phil Steele’s site.

OU’s 2009 Breakout Stars

New post up on Phil Steele’s site on OU’s 2009 breakout stars.

5 Most Important Sooners in 2009

August 8, 2009

I’ve got a new post up on Phil Steele’s site looking at the five Sooners most integral to the team’s success this season.

Also, no big surprise, but OU opened at 3 in the coaches’ poll.
*Overrated: Alabama, Utah, Oregon State.
*Underrated: Cal, North Carolina, Kansas.

Announcements and Odds and Ends

A few housekeeping notes and items of interest:

-Everyone’s favorite college football guru, Phil Steele, has enlisted Homerism to blog about the Sooners for his Web site. I’ll be posting on there a few times a week, and look for the activity to really ramp up once the season starts. Here’s the URL:
http://www.philsteele.com/Blogs/Individual_Team_blogs/Oklahoma_Blog.html.
Bookmark it right now, just like you did for this site. You do have this site bookmarked, don’t you?
-My final post in the Colorado season preview for Tilting at Windmills is up. I’ll be tackling Baylor beginning later this week.
-Conference media days are nothing more than an excuse for beat writers to repackage the same old stories they’ve been writing all offseason, but this time under the guise of “breaking news.” Count on lots of headlines from the Big 12 meetings like “Stoops Says Big Game Criticisms Unfair” and “Bradford Ready to Defend Heisman.” If you really want to check out some of the coverage, though, SoonerSports.com appears to have most of the bases covered.
-Lastly, it appears as though Homerism will be transitioning to a new site platform soon. It’s an exciting opportunity to expand the types of content I can provide and to promote the blog. Anyway, the URL will be the same and everything; the only real difference is that things will just look a little different. If you have any ideas on things you’ve seen on other sites that you think I should incorporate or suggestions for ways to improve, please feel free to drop me a line via e-mail or leave a comment here. Pretty much everything is on the table.
More details to come.
