Deric Robertson on Ryan Simmons: “Ryan is a no BS kind of guy. If you’re not in it to win it, he doesn’t want you around. If your goals are not oriented toward the team and trying to make the defense better, or the overall team in general, he doesn’t want you around.” Good profile by Kyle Fredrickson. (NewsOK)

Good stuff from Desmond Roland here on his attitude: “I just have to come ready to practice every day, I can’t come with a bad attitude. I have to stay positive, because I signed up for this. And that’s what I’m telling the freshmen, ‘You got to come ready to practice every day. Treat it like a game. It’s not too long before we’ll be playing in big-time games, and this hard work will pay off.'” (AP)

We ranked the 22nd-best OSU uniform combination over the weekend. (PFB)

David Glidden on the young guys: “If they’re complaining late in practice, they’re ready to get off the field. But yet, we’ve got to keep pushing because that’s how it’s going to be when we’re down at OU or Baylor and you’ve got 100,000 fans in Norman just screaming at you. At the same time, that’s what makes it fun.” (NewsOK)

Speaking of uniforms, I like these alternates from Michigan. (Yahoo)

More on The Freek from Gundy: “When (Hill) was out there with us in the spring, and I said this, he was still a track guy playing football. He showed some signs today of a football player playing football. So I thought it was a really good scrimmage for him.” (NewsOK)

Barry Sanders won The Season. As he should have. (ESPN)

Haha, this photo will pretty much never get old. (CRFF)

OU is getting food trucks which is actually pretty smart. (CBS Sports)

Here’s Gundy after the scrimmage. I’ve missed him, he looks to be in mid-season form.

Good stuff here from the defense, too.

This is great.
