VDPYLHUVHQ J\PQDVWLFVFHQWHU A state-of-the-art 7,000 square-foot addition and a complete overhaul of the existing Sam Viersen Gymnastics Center was finalized in the spring of 2010, ensuring that the home of Oklahoma Gymnastics remains one of the nation’s premier collegiate training facilities. Funded entirely by private donations without the use of any state or university appropriated funds, the project included a complete renovation of the current gym, locker rooms, sports medicine training rooms and the awards recognition room. A new storage area, a reconfiguration of foam and resi pits and an outdoor patio also highlight the renovation. Parking was also added on the North end of the facility. “Oklahoma’s commitment to the Sam Viersen facility project enhances what is already an amazing experience for our student-athletes,” said OU women’s gymnastics head coach K.J. Kindler. Along with the existing structure that bared its name, the Viersen Family Foundation provided an additional commitment to help fund the latest renovation. “These renovations are going to increase our competitiveness and our ability to bring in the best and brightest student-athletes as we continue the run of championships both programs have had,” said OU men’s gymnastics head coach Mark Williams. One of only a handful of freestanding, co-ed college gyms in the country, the the Sam Viersen Gymnastics Center is located just north of the Lloyd Noble Center. PHGLDJXLGH

Along with the renovation that was completed in the spring of 2010, a new state-of-the-art team conference room was constructed and dedicated during the 2008 competition season. Named after legendary Oklahoma women’s gymnastics coach Becky Switzer, the meeting room provides a pioneering facility for team meetings, video review sessions and team building activities. Complete with a plasma TV, wood floors, custom cabinetry, custom gymnastics artwork and computer workstations, this addition provides an area for the team to unite.

The University of Oklahoma has a long and storied history.The rich tradition has given birth to some of the most recognized pageantry in all of college athletics. Here is a look at the origin of some of the elements that create the wonderful atmosphere so unique to OU:

6221(56

College sports fans are hard-pressed to find a nickname that is as unique and as tied in to a state’s history as a Sooner. The University of Oklahoma is the only school known as Sooners and those who claim that they are Sooners say it with pride. The Oklahoma Territory opened with the Land Run of 1889. Settlers from across the globe, seeking free land, made their way to the prairies of the plains to stake their claim. One of the few rules to claiming a lot of land was that all participants were to start at the same time, on the boom of a cannon. All settlers who started then were labeled as “Boomers” and the ones who went early were called “Sooners.” OU athletic teams were called either Rough Riders or Boomers for 10 years before the current Sooner nickname emerged in 1908. The university actually derived its name from a pep club called “The Sooner Rooters.” The success of University of Oklahoma athletics teams over the years has made the nickname synonymous with winning.

One of the most recognizable college fight songs in the country, Boomer Sooner immediately evokes enthusiasm from OU fans and sends chills down the spines of those who dare to oppose them. In 1905, Arthur M. Alden, a student in history and physiology whose father was a Norman jeweler, wrote the lyrics to the fight song, borrowing the tune from Yale University’s Boola Boola but improvising the words. A year later, an addition was made to it from North Carolina’s I’m a Tarheel Born and the two combined to form today’s university fight song. Though the tune was first made known by Yale, the everlasting success of Sooner squads has taken the melody of Boomer Sooner to national popularity. Boomer Sooner, Boomer Sooner Boomer Sooner, Boomer Sooner Boomer Sooner, Boomer Sooner Boomer Sooner, OK U! Oklahoma, Oklahoma Oklahoma, Oklahoma Oklahoma, Oklahoma Oklahoma, OK U! I’m a Sooner born and Sooner bred and when I die, I’ll be Sooner dead Rah Oklahoma, Rah Oklahoma Rah Oklahoma, OK U!

The Sooner Schooner is a Conestoga, or covered wagon, reminiscent of the mode of travel used by pioneers who settled Oklahoma. The Schooner is powered by matching white ponies named Boomer and Sooner, and it ventures onto Owen Field in a triumphant victory ride after OU scores. Although the Schooner was introduced in 1964, it did not become the official mascot until 1980. The Schooner is well-recognized by college athletics fans across the country and makes regular appearances at university functions. During OU football and baseball games from 19151928, Mex the Dog wore a red sweater with a letter “O” on the side. Mex died of old age on April 30, 1928, and he was so popular among students and faculty that the university closed for his funeral and procession on May 2, 1928. In the fall of 2005, the OU Athletics Deparment introduced costumed mascots. The new characters will act as an extension of the Sooner Schooner and its horses to be enjoyed by fans -- especially children -- at all OU athletics contests. The costumes feature traditional collegiate gear as part of their regular uniform, but will don team uniforms for football and men’s and women’s basketball. They were voted “Most Collegiate” by the Universal Cheerleading Association (UCA).

The student body approved with great enthusiasm and immediately pennants, banners, badges and decorations of every description appeared on the streets, in the windows, at chapel, in classrooms, and all public places; however, local merchants could not supply the demand.

In the early years of the 1900s, both townspeople of Norman and students of OU participated in a band that played for football games. Professor John Merrill started the first band in 1901, which was composed mostly of townspeople and disbanded after each football season. Lloyd Curtis, a cornetist, founded the first continuous student band in 1904.

In the fall of 1895, Miss May Overstreet, the only woman on the faculty, was asked to chair a committee to select the colors of the university. The committee decided the colors should be crimson and cream and an elaborate display of the colors was draped above a platform before the student body.

Even though the school colors have evolved to red and white over the years, you can ask any self-respecting Sooner what the colors are and they will proudly announce “Crimson and Cream.” On gamedays, a sea of crimson rolls through OU’s home venues and all Sooners are urged to wear the official colors to show the rest of the country what school spirit and Sooner Pride is all about.

The Pride of Oklahoma Marching Band has been supporting Sooner Spirit for more than a century. Unlike many other college bands, which began as military drill units, the Pride of Oklahoma had its beginnings as a pep band.

Today, the 300-member Pride of Oklahoma has members representing virtually every college and major on campus. The Pride of Oklahoma stands for excellence in musicianship, academics, school spirit, and commitment to our role in the surrounding community. Boomer Sooner rings out at the end of each rehearsal, and that song is the defining element of the University of Oklahoma. Maybe that is why Sooner fans love the band so much. Not much can compare to the first “gogo” at a football game when the Pride of Oklahoma marches the interlocking OU down the field playing Boomer Sooner.

The OU Chant is a loyalty song that is sung before every home football game, before and after every men’s and women’s basketball games and at the end of many athletic and university functions. Every fan who wears the official colors, each current student and student-athlete and all OU alumni are encouraged to stand and raise one finger in the air during the playing of the Chant -- a symbolic gesture that shows those who do not know what it means to be a Sooner, the greatness of the university and the unity between all Sooners. The Chant was written in 1936 by Jessie Lone Clarkson Gilkey, who directed the OU girl’s glee club from 1936 to 1938 and was voted Outstanding Faculty Woman in 1937. O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A Our chant rolls on and on! Thousands strong Join heart and song In alma mater’s praise Of campus beautiful by day and night Of colors proudly gleaming Red and White ‘Neath a western sky OU’s chant will never die.

The University of Oklahoma athletics program boasts a tradition that few schools can rival. Over the years, Sooner squads have combined for 26 team national championships including eight in men’s gymnastics, seven in football, seven in wrestling, two in baseball, one in men’s golf and one in softball. The Sooner tradition isn’t something buried in the past. It inspires OU’s student-athletes to greater heights every season. In 2008-09, the Sooner football team competed in its sixth BCS bowl in just seven years and, in 2008, the men’s gymnastics team earned its fifth national title in seven seasons. In 2002, the Sooner men’s and women’s basketball teams carved their spot in history by advancing to the NCAA Final Four -- only the third time in NCAA history a school accomplished the feat with both teams in the same year. The OU women added two more Final Four appearances in 2009 and 2010, becoming one of only eight programs in NCAA history to reach back-to-back Final Fours. Even more remarkable, during the 2008-2009 season, the OU football and men’s and women’s basketball teams combined for 74 wins – tying the most ever for those three sports by a Division I school in a single season. In 2008-2009, OU went 12-2 in football, 30-6 in men’s basketball and 32-5 in women’s basketball. The 74-win mark was previously set during the 20012002 season by none other than the Oklahoma Sooners. The University of Oklahoma now stands alone in college sports’ 30-30-10 club, created exclusively by OU.

Oklahoma’s student-athletes continue to lead in the classroom and their actions in the community are exemplary. With the Great Expectations campaign, Oklahoma continues to build the finest facilities in the nation. Each day, it becomes more evident that the University of Oklahoma has become one of the finest comprehensive athletics program in the country. When OU studentathletes raise the trophy of another championship, the hands responsible for hoisting that trophy symbolize thousands of Sooners around the globe. The following represents a closer look at the tradition powering the Oklahoma Sooners: • Oklahoma was playing football before it was a state. It’s only one of two Division I football programs to win seven or more national championships. And OU is the only Division I football program ever to record 47 straight victories. • With Sam Bradford at No. 1, Gerald McCoy at No. 3 and Trent Williams at No. 4, Oklahoma became the first school ever to supply three of the first four NFL Draft picks in 2010. 2010 also marked only the second time that one school has produced the top pick in consecutive NBA (OU’s Blake Griffin went first in the 2009 hoops draft) and NFL Drafts. • Oklahoma gymnastics great Bart Conner won two NCAA all-around crowns and led the Sooners to two NCAA titles in 1977 and 1978. A three-time Olympian

(1976, ‘80, ‘84), Conner won two gold medals in 1984. He was instrumental in the foundation of the International Gymnastics Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City. • Oklahoma defeated UCLA in the 2000 Women’s College World Series to capture the school’s first softball national championship. The Sooners won 66 games, broke 15 school records, had four All-Americans, the WCWS Most Outstanding Player, three WCWS all-tournament team members, a Big 12 title, a No. 1 ranking and the National Coaching Staff of the Year. The Sooners became just the second non-West Coast team in NCAA history to win a softball national championship. • The OU men’s basketball team has competed in 27 postseason tournaments in the last 29 years. In 2009 OU produced its 32nd winning season in the last 34 years. No other Big 12 team can boast as many winning campaigns in the span. • Sooner football has accumulated seven national championships, 42 conference titles, 25 bowl championships, 150 All-Americans and had 346 players drafted by the NFL, including 41 first-round selections and four No. 1 picks: Lee Roy Selmon (1976), Billy Sims (1980), Brian Bosworth (1987—supplemental) and Sam Bradford (2010). • Oklahoma’s storied wrestling program has amassed 23 conference titles and seven national championships. OU has produced 257 All-Americans and its 65 individual national champions ranks third all-time.

• The OU women’s basketball team advanced to its third overall and second-consecutive Final Four in 2010 after playing the nation’s toughest schedule. The Sooners, at some point, played all four No. 1 seeds in the NCAA Championship and 13 teams ranked in the final top 25.

• The Oklahoma baseball team swept through its regional tournament and the World Series without a loss to capture the 1994 national championship. The Sooners topped off a 42-17 regular season with the school’s second national baseball title.

• Oklahoma football has placed 28 former Sooners into the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame, including three head coaches: Bennie Owen in 1951, Bud Wilkinson in 1969 and Barry Switzer in 2001.

• Oklahoma golf’s Charlie Coe was one of the most celebrated amateur players in the history of the game. During his career, Coe captured U.S. amateur crowns in 1949, 1958 and 1959. He also played in 19 straight Masters Tournaments. Coe competed on the Walker Cup teams of 1949, 1951 and 1953.

• The Oklahoma men’s golf program has produced 47 All-Americans, eight three-time All-Americans, eight individual conference champions, 14 conference titles and the 1989 national championship. • Oklahoma men’s basketball great Mookie Blaylock holds the NCAA-single game record for steals in a contest with 13. He accomplished the feat twice in games against Centenary on Dec. 12, 1987, and LoyolaMarymount on Dec. 17, 1988. • OU football has produced five Heisman Trophy winners: halfback Billy Vessels won the award in 1952, tailback Steve Owens won in 1969, halfback Billy Sims won in 1978, quarterback Jason White brought the trophy back to Norman in 2003 and fellow QB Sam Bradford took home the award last season. OU players have captured 63 national awards and the Sooners have also produced five Outland Trophies, four Walter Camp Trophies, four Butkus Award winners, four Davey O’Brien Awards, three Lombardi Awards, three Thorpe Awards, two Bronko Nagurski Awards, two Maxwell Awards, one Tatupu Award, one Johnny Unitas Award and one Bednarik award.

• Oklahoma wrestling has produced 18 Olympians who have collectively won three gold and two silver medals. Brothers Dave and Mark Schultz both won gold in the 1984 games. • Oklahoma baseball won the 1951 College World Series with a come-from-behind win over Tennessee in the championship game to become the first team in history to claim the title after winning the double-elimination tournament without a defeat. • Oklahoma baseball advanced to its 10th College World Series appearance in 2010 and finished the season ranked No. 5 nationally, the program’s highest finish since claiming OU’s second national title in 1994. • Oklahoma basketball great Wayman Tisdale was a three-time All-American for the Sooners from 1983-85 and is the all-time leading scorer and rebounder in OU history. He was a member of the 1984 gold-medalwinning U.S. Olympic team and was recently named the greatest player ever in the Big Eight Conference by a panel of longtime conference media observers and

officials. Tisdale’s No. 23 jersey was retired by Oklahoma in 1997 -- the first jersey ever retired by OU in any sport. • Sooner basketball great Stacey Dales graduated as the most decorated player in the program’s history in 2002. She was the WNBA’s third overall draft pick by the Washington Mystics. In addition to leading OU to the 2002 national championship game, Dales was a twotime consensus All-American, two-time Big 12 Player of the Year, four-time Academic All-Big 12 selection, and two-time CoSIDA Academic All-American. • Former OU letterwinners Michael Blackwood (track and field), Jonathan Horton (men’s gymnastics) and Danny McFarlane (track and field) represented Oklahoma at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing. • Three-time OU All-American Anthony Kim won the 2008 AT&T National in early July, becoming the first American golfer since Tiger Woods to win twice in one year on the PGA Tour. Kim was also a member of the victorious U.S. squad at the 2008 Ryder Cup where he played a crucial role in winning the cup with a crushing defeat of Sergio Garcia. • OU women’s gymnastics made its seventh-straight NCAA Championships in 2010 where the Sooners finished a program-best second place in their first ever Super Six team finals appearance.

Norman is an ever-changing city of nearly 100,000 residents. Located in the heart of the state, it has grown to become the third largest city in Oklahoma. Despite its continuous growth, it has maintained the spirit and serenity of a small close-knit community. Since the Oklahoma landrush of 1889, Norman has grown into a popular and smart city. The spirit of Norman and its citizens is unwavering and uncompromising. While other towns were clamoring to become the state capital, Norman residents desired to have the first state university. When the first OU president got off the train and saw a prairie, he saw opportunity. As home to the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premier educational institution, Norman boasts an excellent quality of life and is a city that thrives on and celebrates the diversity of its community. Legendary University of Oklahoma football coach Barry Switzer called Norman â&#x20AC;&#x153;a university town with a championship spirit.â&#x20AC;?

Oklahoma City, the capital of Oklahoma, is located just 18 miles from the Norman campus. It was the first city settled in the Land Run of 1889 because of its position as the center of the state. It is because of this central location that Oklahoma City has become known as the home of America’s Western heritage. Whether adventure, history, culture or sports, Oklahoma City offers a variety of attractions and activities different from any other place in the country. Oklahoma City was born on the afternoon of April 22, 1889, when the central portion of what is now Oklahoma was opened to settlement by presidential proclamation. Thousands crossed the borders of “unassigned lands” at the sound of gunfire at high noon. Never before or since has such a “run” occurred anywhere on the earth. By the time the dust had settled on that historic day, many people had staked their claim at “Oklahoma Station,” an area which was destined to become Oklahoma City, a leading city in America. In 1911,

Oklahoma City officially became the capital after a statewide election moved the state seal from Guthrie. Oklahoma City has become a haven for exciting sports action. It is home of an NBA team, two semiprofessional sports teams and the host of the NCAA Women College Softball World Series and Big 12 Softball Championship. The Oklahoma RedHawks, 1996 American Association champions (then named the Oklahoma City 89ers), are the Triple-A baseball affiliate of the Texas Rangers. The team plays in the 13,066-seat AT&T Bricktown Ballpark, one of the plushest venues in all of minor league sports. The ballpark served as host to a 2004 NCAA baseball regional and the 2005, 2006, 2007 and 208 Big 12 Baseball Championships. Hockey mania runs rampant with the recent success of the Central Hockey League’s Oklahoma City Blazers. The Blazers won the CHL crown in 1996 and are yearly one of the league’s best teams. In addition, the city has hosted numerous PGA and Senior PGA Tour events.

Tulsa, the state’s second largest city, is located 100 miles to the northeast of Norman in the heart of Oklahoma’s Green Country. Ask people to describe Tulsa, and you’ll likely get many different answers. It was a city forever changed by the discovery of oil in 1901. It is home to art deco treasures and nationally renowned museums. Its African-American heritage left its mark, in both the business and music worlds. And it’s a city of nostalgia and special memories for countless Americans due to its location on historic Route 66. Tulsa is a cosmopolitan town that appeals to both young families and retirees. National touring exhibitions can be seen at the Philbrook Museum of Art, which was recently featured on the television program America’s Castles. For great western art, check out the Gilcrease Museum, and music legends are commemorated at Oklahoma’s Jazz Hall of Fame. Other unique attractions worth a stop include the Elsing Museum, Ida Dennie Willis Museum of Miniatures, Dolls & Toys, Tulsa Air and Space Center and the Fenster Museum of Jewish Art.

7+(%,*&21)(5(1&( The Big 12 Conference, despite being one of the youngest conferences in America, will continue its position as a national leader in athletics and academics as it embarks on its 15th season in 2010-11. Since it began play in 1996-97, the Conference can boast of 38 team crowns and 459 individual NCAA Championships. The success continued last year, as Oklahoma State won the NCAA menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cross country title while Texas captured the national championship in menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s swimming & diving. Texas A&M maintained its place as the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top outdoor track & ďŹ eld program, securing the NCAA crowns for both the men and women for the second consecutive year. Big 12 squads continued to lead the nation in their respective sports as every single sport the Conference sponsors had at least one school ranked in the top six of the national rankings during the past campaign. In addition, nine different sports had the No. 1 team in the nation at some point during the 2009-10 season. In addition to the NCAA crowns, several more schools made strong national showings. Five Big 12 volleyball teams competed in the regional semiďŹ nals of the NCAA Championship in 2010, the ďŹ rst time that has happened in conference history. The Big 12 also had a school play for the BCS National Championship (Texas) for the seventh season and placed two womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball squads (Baylor, Oklahoma) in the Final Four in the same season for the ďŹ rst time. Oklahoma ďŹ nished second nationally at the NCAA womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gymnastics ďŹ nals - an all-time high for the Big 12 - while Oklahoma State placed second at the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s golf championship. Iowa State was third at the NCAA wrestling championships and the Big 12 also placed a team in the College World Series in both softball (Missouri) and baseball (Oklahoma).

The individual honors also continued, as Jenny Barringer (Colorado) earned The Bowerman Award, presented for the ďŹ rst time to the most outstanding collegiate womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s track and ďŹ eld athlete. In fact, all three womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ nalists were from the Big 12. Caroline Hedwall (Oklahoma State) was named the recipient of the Honda Sports Award as the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top female golfer after capturing the NCAA individual title. Lisa Koll (Iowa State) earned the Honda Award as the top collegiate female athlete in track & ďŹ eld, Connie Yori (Nebraska) was the consensus Division I womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball coach of the year and K.J. Kindler (Oklahoma) earned national womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gymnastics coaching accolades. The Big 12 has had four Heisman Trophy winners in its 14-year history. In 2008, the Big 12 established a highwater mark, as for the ďŹ rst time in the 74-year history of the Heisman four of the top ďŹ ve vote-getters hailed from the same conference, including award-winner Sam Bradford (Oklahoma). The league followed that recognition with two of the top ďŹ ve ďŹ nalists in 2009. During the past six seasons a total of 16 NCAA trophies have been hoisted by Big 12 institutions, with at least one national crown won in all but one year for the Conference, including each of the past 13 seasons. The Big 12 leads all conferences with its seven appearances in BCS title games. Seven league squads have played for the football national championship in the last 10 years with berths in 17 BCS games overall, including two each in 2007 and 2008. In the past two seasons, the Big 12 has had 16 players earn consensus All-America accolades. In basketball, nine menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and six womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teams have advanced to their respective Final Fours in the past eight seasons as the Big 12 continues its place

among the elite intercollegiate athletic conferences. On the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side six different teams have reached the regional ďŹ nals in the past three seasons - the ďŹ rst time since 1985 that any conference can boast of six different teams doing so over a three-year period. The Big 12 has led the nation in womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball attendance the past 11 seasons and surpassed its own NCAA record attendance mark in 2009-10. Numerous national honors have been won by basketball student-athletes during the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history. Sherron Collins (Kansas) was awarded the 2010 Frances Pomeroy Naismith Award in menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball as the top player six-foot or under. Kelsey GrifďŹ n (Nebraska) gave the Conference a consensus All-America selection in womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball for the 10th straight season. The Big 12 and its member institutions are committed to a competitive environment where sportsmanship and fair play take center stage. Whether on the ďŹ eld, in the classroom, or within the community, the student-athletes, administrators, coaches and game ofďŹ cials of the Big 12 support the highest ideals in sportsmanship. Big 12 student-athletes have shown commitment to their studies by earning numerous academic recognitions. Cole Aldrich (Kansas) was the latest after being named Academic All-America of the Year honors in menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball in 2009-10. It marked the seventh time in the past ďŹ ve years that a league athlete has garnered the top academic honor for their respective sport. The Big 12 had plenty of success overall in the classroom a year ago, as the Conference led the nation with 38 student-athletes earning ESPN The Magazine/ CoSIDA Academic All-America recognition.

Sarah Pavan (Nebraska) earned countless accolades for her work away from competition, being named the Academic All-America of the Year for all sports in both 2006-07 and ‘07-08. She was also named recipient of the prestigious 2006-07 Honda-Broderick Award as Collegiate Woman Athlete of the Year, the first athlete since the Big 12 was formed to earn the accolade. In its history, the conference has nearly 400 academic honorees, averaging more than 25 each season. The Big 12 can boast of other stories that combine on and off the field success. Patience Knight (Texas Tech) was the recipient of the Honda Inspiration Award in 2008, given to an outstanding female college athlete who overcomes adversity to excel in her sport. She was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in 2007, but rebounded to win All-America honors at the 2008 NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships. Competitive excellence, scholarship and sportsmanship are all equal components of the Big 12 philosophy. All-Big 12 teams and Academic All-Big 12 squads are recognized for each sport at the end of their respective seasons. At the end of each academic year, the Conference honors its top male and female

student-athletes with the Big 12 Athlete of the Year and Big 12 Sportsperson of the Year awards. Institutions can also nominate student-athletes for the prestigious Dr. Prentice Gautt Postgraduate Scholarships at the end of each academic year. A total of 249 scholars have received over 1.6 million in postgraduate financial aid through the first 14 years of the program. The Big 12 sponsors 21 sports. Men’s squads include baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, indoor track & field, outdoor track & field, swimming & diving, tennis and wrestling. Women’s teams are fielded in basketball, cross country, golf, gymnastics, indoor track & field, outdoor track & field, soccer, softball, swimming, tennis and volleyball.

Member schools include - Baylor University, University of Colorado, Iowa State University, University of Kansas, Kansas State University, University of Missouri, University of Nebraska, University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University, University of Texas, Texas A&M University and Texas Tech University.

The institutions created a league that encompasses seven states, over 46 million people and television households in 18 of the top 100 markets within its geographic footprint.

The winner of the Big 12 football championship game earns the league’s berth into the Bowl Championship Series. In the last several years the Big 12 has increased its bowl agreements and expanded television opportunities for all sports through contracts with ABC/ ESPN and FSN.

Kindler has already made her mark on Sooner history. Kindler led OU to its seventh-straight NCAA Championships in 2010 where the Sooners ďŹ nished in a program-best second place in their ďŹ rst ever Super Six team ďŹ nals appearance. Kindler became the ďŹ rst head coach in NCAA history to lead two separate programs to the Super Six, Oklahoma in 2010 and Iowa State in 2006.

Vise also earned All-America status on bars and ďŹ&#x201A;oor and was the NCAA Runner-Up on both events in 2010.

In addition to being named National Coach of the Year, Kindler was also named Regional Coach of the Year and Big 12 Coach of the Year in 2010.

The Sooners won their second-straight Big 12 title in 2009, while posting individual event titles on bars and beam at the conference championship.

Under the direction of Kindler, the Sooners closed 2010 with a ďŹ nal record of 33-5. The win total broke the previous program best of 26 that was set in 1989 under Becky Switzer. Kindler guided the Sooners to the only undefeated regular season in the NCAA in 2010 (22-0) en route to postseason titles at the Big 12 Championship and University Park Regional.

Under Kindlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guidance, Megan Ferguson earned All-American status with her stellar performance on beam. The Sooners won eight beam titles in 2009 under Kindler.

OU was ranked ďŹ rst or second in every regular season poll in 2010, and was the only squad in the country to score above a 196.000 in every meet. Oklahoma also picked up its ďŹ rst win over a No. 1 opponent in program history in 2010 with a 197.950-197.275 victory over top-ranked Alabama on March 5. OU eclipsed its previous program best (197.725) by 0.225 in the win, which was the highest score in the NCAA in 2010.



As the primary coach on beam, Kindlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beam squad was a mainstay at the top of the NCAA rankings during the 2010 season. Oklahoma posted event titles in 12 of 13 competitions entering NCAAs, while seniors Hollie Vise and Kristin Smith garnered All-America distinction on the apparatus.

Kindlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s squad continued its Big 12 dominance, winning its third-straight Big 12 title on March 27 with a team score of 197.175, the highest score by a conference champion since 2001. OU swept all four team event titles and won at least a share of all four individual event titles.

In 2008, Kindler guided OU to a share of its highest ever ďŹ nish, posting the most wins in program history and recording the best winning percentage of any Sooner squad along the way. Named head coach of the Sooners in the summer of 2006, Kindler has quickly positioned the OU squad among the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s elite, as the Sooners have ďŹ nished in the top 10 at the previous three NCAA Championships. 2008 proved to be a storybook year for the Sooners under Kindler, as OU won its ďŹ rst 21 meetings of the season (the only squad in the country to win all of its regular season contests) en route to the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst Big 12 title since 2004. OU recorded only two scores lower than 9.8 in the ďŹ nal three events of the 2008 conference championship as the Sooners clinched at least a share of all four individual event

In addition to the success at OU, Kindler led Iowa State to the NCAA Championships in all six of her seasons with the Cyclones. Iowa State went to its first NCAA Super Six in 2006 in Kindler’s final year in Ames. While at Iowa State, Kindler coached 16 All-Americans and seven NCAA Individual qualifiers.

Hollie Vise and Haley DeProspero won titles on bars and beam, respectively, as the pair both recorded scores of 9.9 in their event wins. Kiara Redmond won the other two titles, taking home the vault win with her 9.95 and the floor exercise title after a score of 9.9. Following OU’s come-from-behind heroics in the conference championship, Kindler was named Big 12 Coach of the Year for a fourth time, while Redmond garnered Big 12 Gymnast of the Year honors. Always emphasizing academics, Kindler’s squads have regularly placed its gymnasts on the Big 12 All-Academic teams and the NACGC All-Academic squads. In Kindler’s four seasons with Oklahoma, 24 gymnasts have earned NACGC Academic All-American awards and 27 named to Academic All-Big 12 teams.

After the Sooners’ stellar 2010 season, Ball was named National Assistant Coach of the Year along with fellow OU assistant coach Tom Haley. The two also shared 2010 Regional Assistant Coach of the Year honors. In 2010, OU finished in a program-best second place after making its first-ever NCAA Super Six team finals appearance. The Sooners also went undefeated in the regular season, beat No. 1 Alabama and eight other top-25 opponents, claimed their third-straight Big 12 Championship and won the 2010 University Park regional title. OU won 12 of 13 team event titles on bars under the direction of Haley and Ball, while Hollie Vise earned All-America distinction and was NCAA Runner-Up on the apparatus. The Sooners didn’t count a fall on the apparatus in 2010, while OU posted only two team scores below 49.000, with a season low of 48.950. As the primary coach on vault, Ball’s vault squad posted a team score of 49.000 or higher in 14 of 15 competitions in 2010. OU won the team vault title 11 times in 2010, including the Big 12 vault title and NCAA Regional vault title. Under Ball’s tutelage, an OU gymnast won the individual vault title 11 times last season, including the Big 12 vault title (shared by Jackie Flanery, Brie Olson and Natalie Ratcliff). Ball also helped Sara Stone to reach the program’s first perfect score since 2008, Stone posted a 10.00 on vault at Michigan State on Feb. 26. In 2009, OU closed the year with top-10 team rankings on both vault and bars, and won a combined 14 team titles on the two events.

Under Ball, the Sooners posted a season-high 49.400 on vault on March 6, despite the absence of one of their regulars in the lineup. Every member of the 2009 Oklahoma vault lineup posted a season high of at least 9.85, including three with scores higher than 9.9. Ball’s expertise on the two events was evident in 2008 as Oklahoma closed the season ranked first in the Big 12 and 10th in the country on both apparatuses. OU won 11 bars titles and notched 10 wins on vault during the regular season, capped off by 23 individual event titles on the two apparatuses alone. In his first season at OU, Ball also guided Brittney Koncak-Schumann to All-America status on vault. Prior to joining the Oklahoma program, Ball spent 11 years as administrative assistant coach at Iowa State where he was named the 2005 NACGCW National Co-Assistant Coach of the Year. He was also honored as an NCAA Regional Assistant Coach of the Year in 2004 and 2002. At Iowa State, Ball served as the primary coach on vault and uneven bars. During his tenure in Ames, the Cyclones rewrote the school record books on both events and six of his gymnasts won Big 12 titles on bars. Ball also coached a two-time regional bars co-champion and two two-time All-Americans on vault. While at Iowa State, Ball was a co-owner and head coach at the Cardinal Gymnastics Academy where he qualified five gymnasts to the national TOPS team and camp held annually at USA gymnastics coach Bela Karolyi’s ranch.

Boren, who has served Oklahoma as governor and U.S. senator, became the thirteenth president of the University of Oklahoma in November 1994. He is the first person in state history to have served in all three positions. Boren is widely respected for his academic credentials, his longtime support of education, and for his distinguished political career as a reformer of the American political system. A graduate of Yale University in 1963, Boren majored in American history, graduated in the top one percent of his class and was elected Phi Beta Kappa. He was selected as a Rhodes Scholar and earned a master’s degree in politics, philosophy and economics from Oxford University, England, in 1965. In 1968, he received a law degree from the University of Oklahoma College of Law, where he was on the Law Review, elected to the Order of the Coif, and won the Bledsoe Prize as the outstanding graduate by a vote of the faculty. As Oklahoma’s governor from 1974 through 1978, Boren promoted key educational initiatives that have had an enduring impact on Oklahoma. Established during his tenure were the Oklahoma Arts Institute, the Scholar-Leadership Enrichment Program, and the Oklahoma Physicians Manpower Training Program, which provides scholarships for medical students and medical personnel who commit to practice in underserved rural areas. Also, the first state funding for Gifted and Talented classes was provided in 1976 and, from 1976 through 1978, Oklahoma ranked first among all states in the percentage increases of funding for higher education. One of Boren’s most far-reaching projects in promoting quality education at all levels is the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence, which he founded in 1985. The foundation recognizes outstanding public school students and teachers and helps establish private local foundations to help give academic endowment grants to local public schools. As a senator, he was the author of the National Security Education Act in 1992, which provides scholarships for study abroad and for learning additional languages, as well as legislation to restore the tax deductibility of gifts of appreciated property to universities in 1993. Boren, also a former state legislator, spent nearly three decades in elective 

RNODKRPDZRPHQŎVJ\PQDVWLFV

politics before becoming the president of the University of Oklahoma. Boren was the youngest governor in the nation when he served from 1974 to 1978. Known as a reformer, Boren campaigned with a broom as his symbol. During his term, he instituted many progressive programs, including conflict-of-interest rules, campaign-financing disclosure, stronger open meeting laws for public bodies, more competitive bidding on state government contracts, and reform of the state’s prison system, including expanded education programs for first-time offenders and the largest expansion of the work-release program in state history. During his time in the U.S. Senate from 1979 to 1994, Boren served on the Senate Finance and Agriculture Committees and was the longest-serving chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. From his days as a state legislator and governor of Oklahoma to Washington, Boren carried a commitment to reform, leading numerous efforts to make government work better for American citizens. As chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, he strengthened oversight of secret government programs and reformed the procedures for Presidential notice of such programs to Congress. For more than 10 years, he led the fight for congressional campaign finance reform and for legislation discouraging administration and congressional staff from cashing in on government experience and contacts by becoming lobbyists. In addition, he introduced legislation seeking to limit gifts and travel subsidies that government workers, including members of Congress, can receive from lobbyists. Boren also chaired the special 1992-93 Joint Committee on the Organization of Congress, which produced proposals to make Congress more efficient and responsive by streamlining congressional bureaucracy, reducing staff sizes and reforming procedures to end legislative gridlock. Boren left the U.S. Senate in 1994 with an approval rating of 9l percent after being reelected with 83 percent of the vote in 1990, the highest percentage in the nation in a U.S. Senate contest in that election year. Boren served from 1988 to 1997 as a member of the Yale University Board of Trustees. His university experience also includes four years on the faculty of Oklahoma Baptist University, where he was chairman of the Department of Political Science and chairman of the Division of Social Sciences. In 1993, the American Association of University Professors presented Boren with the Henry Yost Award as Education Advocate of the Year. In April 2004, Boren received the Mory’s Cup from the Mory’s Association at Yale University. In making the presentation to Boren it was noted that he was the first Yale graduate in the university’s history extending over three centuries to have served as a Governor, U.S. Senator and President of a major university.

Under Boren’s leadership, the University of Oklahoma has developed and emerged as a “pacesetter university in American public higher education,” with 20 major new programs initiated since his inauguration. They include establishment of the Joe C. and Carole Kerr McClendon Honors College, the Charles M. Russell Center for the Study of Art of the American West, a new expository writing program for freshmen modeled on the program at Harvard, an interdisciplinary religious studies program, the Artist-in-Residence Program, the International Programs Center, and the Faculty-in-Residence Program putting faculty family apartments in student residence halls. The Retired Professors Program has been started, bringing 50 retired full professors back to the University to teach freshmen. The number of new facilities started or completed on the campus during the Boren years has matched the explosion in new programs. Since 1994, almost $1.9 billion in construction projects have been completed or are under way on OU’s three campuses. Among the largest of the recent projects are the $67 million National Weather Center on OU’s Norman campus, the $90 million OU Cancer Institute on OU’s Health Sciences Center campus in Oklahoma City and the $35 million OU-Tulsa Schusterman Center Clinic . Presidential Travel Scholarships, students from 111 countries on campus, more reciprocal international exchange agreements than any other university and the new International Programs Center are all making OU more international. The new Honors College helps to assure that no students need to leave Oklahoma to find an educational experience to match their potential.

public universities in the United States in private endowment per capita. Since 1994, endowed professorships have increased from 100 to 557 and the OU donor base has grown from 18,000 to more than 125,000 friends and alumni. During the first 10 years of Boren’s tenure over $1 billion in private gifts were donated to the university. Above all, the Boren years have been marked by an emphasis on putting students first. There is not a university president in the country that is more committed to students as his number one priority. He teaches a freshman-level course in political science each semester and is one of the few presidents of major universities to teach. Boren is married to Molly Shi Boren, a former judge and English teacher. Mrs. Boren is President Emeritus of the Oklahoma Arts Institute, which provides education programs in nine arts disciplines for high school students from across the state who are gifted in the arts. Molly Boren has two degrees from the University of Oklahoma, a master’s degree in English and a Juris Doctorate from the OU College of Law. A native of Seminole, Boren has two children, Carrie Christine Boren, an Episcopal minister, and David Daniel Boren, a member of the United States Congress from Oklahoma. Devoting much of his life to public service, Boren drew from the example of his parents, the late Congressman Lyle H. Boren and Christine Boren.

Principle Centered Leader …Visionary ... Passionate Advocate for Student-Athletes ... Establishes Standards of Excellence & Cultural Values ... Builder of Championship Programs Excellence is a word that is often overused yet, when The University of Oklahoma is mentioned with the word excellence, the meaning comes through. From one of the best universities in the nation to a department of intercollegiate athletics that is second to none, excellence is the norm. As successful at the last 10 years have been, on campus and in competition, a new standard has been set and leading that effort is Joe Castiglione, the Sooner AD since 1998. Castiglione’s Sooner team has created a place where competitive dreams come true and academic goals are the expectations, not the exceptions. Through his leadership and the support of the University’s administration, there is a department-wide commitment, involving student-athletes, coaches and staff, to that standard. With the support of OU President David L. Boren and OU’s seven-member Board of Regents and Castiglione’s leadership, the OU athletics department represents a climate that creates lofty goals, high standards and a commitment to ethical behavior that is second to none. For Castiglione, though, it’s not just about the championships and trophies. The victories that he celebrates with his Sooners include graduation rates that continue to climb, record-setting grade point averages and academic honors. The true measure of achievement for Castiglione and, by extension, the department’s coaches and staff, is measured in the success of the student-athletes in relation to the department’s mission statement “Inspiring champions today … Preparing leaders for tomorrow” Since arriving at OU in 1998 after an outstanding administrative career at Missouri, Castiglione has seen the Sooners finish in the top 30 of the Learfield Director’s Cup in 10 of the last 12 years. OU finished 12th after the 2009-10 academic year, a position that marked an all-time best performance in the annual ranking of programs that succeed across the board. Through his insistence that daily and long-term decisions be made in a financially responsible manner, the department has closed the books in the black in each of the last 12 years. His understanding of how the department fits into the University’s academic mission led to a decision in June 2009 to increase the direct support provided by the department on an annual basis to $4 million dollars. Through direct and indirect support, OU Athletics, under Castiglione’s leadership, provides more than 

RNODKRPDZRPHQŎVJ\PQDVWLFV

$7 million annually to OU’s Academics Budget. The 11th director of athletics in University of Oklahoma history, Castiglione is quick to give full credit to the student-athletes and coaches, the staff, OU President David L. Boren, the OU Board of Regents, the donors and the fans for the success experienced during his tenure. It was that commitment to a team approach emphasis that was one of the many qualities that that the search committee recognized when they recommended Castiglione to university administration in 1998. In recognition of the performance of OU’s teams on the field and in the classroom, of the fiscal stability created during his tenure, the dramatic increases in donor giving, facility construction and renovations, and the cutting-edge programs that the department has begun during his tenure, Castiglione was named National Athletic Director of the Year in May 2009 by the Sports Business Journal. That award was one of several earned by Castiglione and the department. The 2007 PRISM Award winner, presented by the School of Sports Management at the University of Massachusetts, OU was just the second Division I winner and all of the programs recognized by the selection panel were started under Castiglione’s leadership with the full support of university administration. His peers have honored him for the department’s achievements as well. In October 2004, the Bobby Dodd Foundation named him Athletics Director of the Year. In 2003, he was inducted into the National Association of Collegiate Marketing Administrators Hall of Fame. In June 2001, he received the General Robert R. Neyland Athletic Director Award for lifetime achievement from the All-American Football Foundation. The National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) named him Central Region AD of the Year in 2000. The achievement that may bring him the most pride, though, came in May 2007 when he completed his master’s of education degree from OU. To understand the need for education and lifelong learning, OU’s student-athletes just have to look at their AD who started and completed his master’s degree while running the department and maintaining his priorities to his family. He quickly put his experience to use as an adjunct professor in the College of Education, teaching graduate classes in Marketing Development and Leadership in Higher Education.

Castiglione was instrumental in the athletics department’s major campaign, Great Expectations: The Campaign For Sooner Sports. The campaign ended in November of 2003 with more than $125 million raised. The figure has grown to more than $220 million since then as funds continue to be raised for facility improvements and scholarship endowments. The largest fund-raising effort in OU athletics history includes projects that impact each of OU’s nearly 500 student-athletes and has become a national model for intercollegiate athletics. Hired on April 30, 1998, Castiglione joined the Sooner family after serving as athletics director at Missouri. In his 17-year career with the Tigers, Castiglione, who was named director of athletics at Missouri on Dec. 15, 1993, was credited with rebuilding sports programs, hiring outstanding coaches, implementing an innovative master plan for facilities, inspiring record-setting increases in fund-raising and balancing the budget in each of his five years as athletics director. A 1979 Maryland graduate, Castiglione received the University’s Distinguished Alumnus Award in April 2007. He began his career as the sports promotions director at Rice. He then worked a year as director of athletic fund-raising at Georgetown before being hired in 1981 at Missouri as director of communications and marketing. His commitment to the success of student-athletes has gone beyond the Norman campus and he has served at national and conference level. He chairs

the NCAA’s Football Academic Progress Rate (APR) Working Group and is currently serving on the Gatorade Collegiate Advisory Board and the National Football Foundation and College Football Hall of Fame Board of Directors. He served two previous terms and is the current chair of the Big 12 Board of Athletics Directors and is a past president of both the Division I-A Athletic Directors Association and NACDA. He served a four-year term on the NCAA Championship/Competition Cabinet and the NCAA Baseball Committee and is a past member of the NCAA Football Special Events Certification Committee. He recently served on the NCAA Diversity Leadership Strategic Planning Committee and the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Discussion Group. A member of the Phi Delta Theta Foundation Board of Trustees, he is a highly requested speaker at annual conventions and continuing education institutes. His involvement in the local community has led to service with civic clubs, churches and charities, including the United Way of Norman. Castiglione served his third term as OU’s campus co-chair this past year, which resulted in the highest recorded contributions ever by faculty, staff and students to the United Way of Norman’s annual campaign. A native of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Castiglione is married to the former Kristen Bartel, a 1990 graduate of the University of Missouri. They are the parents of two sons, Joseph Robert, Jr. and Jonathan Edmund.
