Football

Weeden on the new facilities: “This is first class. I can’t imagine much being any better than this around the country. This is a first-class facility, everything about it. It’s obviously everything we need and we’ve needed it for a while. We’re fortunate to have a place this nice.” (NewsOK)

Cool Weeden interview here. He talked about the QBs: “I thought they all looked pretty good. I think Daxx Garman can just flat-out spin it. I think he sits back in the pocket and throws a good ball, very accurate. J.W., I was around him for a few years so I kind of know what he brings. He’s just a football player. He throws a good ball. You can tell he’s in complete control of the offense (and) again, just being a leader. (Freshman) Mason (Rudolph) looks good. From the reps I saw in team (periods), he sits back there and he’s a big kid. You can tell he’s still learning, but I think he’s a guy that has a pretty high ceiling.” (Tulsa World)

Do endorsement deals make more sense than a college athletics union? They kind of do. (Big Lead)

Ryan Simmons: “We’re pretty young. Guys haven’t made a name for themselves. As far as being hungry and going out and making a play, I don’t think there’s going to be a problem with that.” (NewsOK)

75 percent of Americans are against college athletes unionizing. Wow. (CBS Sports)

Gundy on Daxx: “I see kind of a little bit of a gleam in his eye.” (okstate)

This from Berry Tramel on the future of the NCAA and unionization is smart (though I disagree with parts of it) and I bet it’s close to where this eventually lands. (NewsOK)

Johnny Football’s pro day was a freak show. Presidents and their wives were there. (Deadspin)

Most people think Joe Mixon will win offensive freshman of the year. (ESPN)

Gundy: “Rob Glass could very well be the most important person in our program. Our strength and conditioning allows us to be hands-on with our players all year round.” (NewsOK)
