FROM COACH STOOPS Several times I have been asked what I like most about being the head football coach at Oklahoma. Obviously it's impossible to settle on just one thing, but I can tell you something that always comes quickly to mind ... the hunger this place has for championships. Looking back over OU's history, you can see where some might be tempted to sit back and be satisfied. There have been seven national championships, 38 conference titles, 23 bowl victories and 138 AllAmericans. Despite that, never is a game or honor won here when the next thought, for our team and the fans alike, doesn't turn to winning the next one. I really like that about Oklahoma ... there is always something else out there for us to attain. That attitude is reflected in what has happened here over the last four years. During that time, we've won more games (48) and more awards (12) than any other program in college football. We've spent 22 weeks at No. 1 and have been listed in 55 consecutive polls. There is no better feeling for a coach than to see his players pleased with their college experience. Based on both team and individual achievement, we see a lot of that here, and it drives our program. I can't imagine a better atmosphere for college football. Our players know they will perform on the biggest stage and compete for the greatest honors. They also know that we will do everything we can to provide the right kind of environment to enjoy this special time in their lives, while assisting them in pursuit of a degree. The outcome is a college experience that lasts a lifetime. Another year awaits and another championship opportunity is ahead of us. At Oklahoma, we wouldn't have it any other way.

SOONER TRADITION Great college football and the Oklahoma Sooners. For as long as anyone can remember the two have been one and the same. The list of accomplishments defies logic … seven national championships, an NCAA record 47-game winning streak, 38 conference titles, 37 bowl appearances and 138 All-Americans. All of it points to an incredible past, but consider that one of those national crowns, two of the conference championships, five of the bowl games and 16 of the All-Americans have come in five short years under the current coaching regime.

MOST SUCCESSFUL PROGRAMS SINCE WWII (By victories, 1946-2003)

The last few years have been more of the same at a place where legendary figures, great teams and unforgettable moments are much more the rule than the exception. At some schools, tradition represents ancient history. At others, it harkens back only a few years. At Oklahoma it is timeless. The Sooners were winners yesterday, are winners today and, from every indication, will be winners in the future.

THE BEST PROGRAM IN THE COUNTRY “What’s a program? It’s got to be something that’s endured ... it also has to be about the here and now. We threw in things like national titles, Heisman trophies, bowl performances, stadium ambience, popularity of apparel, number of alumni in the NFL and even graduation rates. With that in mind, we’re naming Oklahoma the No. 1 program in the country.” - Bud Withers, Seattle Times

NATIONAL CHAMPIONS Nothing defines the competitve success of a college athletics program like a national championship. There is no higher pinnacle and no greater stage on which teams and individuals are called upon to prove their excellence. Oklahoma’s ability to flourish in that setting has elevated the Sooner program to the lofty position it enjoys today. With its most recent triumph coming in 2000, OU is one of only two schools to capture seven national football titles. That staggering fact is more than capable of standing on its own. But Oklahoma has taken its national dominance to a higher level by winning those championships over four different decades. Since 1950, the Sooners have been a regular player in the race for national supremacy. Few football programs can set out each fall with the pursuit of the national crown realistically listed among its season goals. Oklahoma, riding a history that makes such a pursuit more than talk and more than dreams, is one of those programs.

STOOPS LEADS OU TO SEVENTH In a season so richly laced with great moments, the one for the ages came in the national title game, a 13-2 victory over Florida State in the Orange Bowl. It has been called by some the greatest defensive effort ever in a championship game. The national title season came just two years into Bob Stoops’ tenure and just two years removed from a sub-.500 season. Along the way, the Sooners had thrilling wins over Nebraska, Texas, Texas A&M and Kansas State (twice), with only one of those contests played in Norman. Headliners included QB Josh Heupel, who finished second in the Heisman voting, and big-play linebacker Torrance Marshall. The mark at the end of the season was an unblemished 13-0.

When it comes to national championships, the Sooners have "been there, done that" ... seven times.

NATIONAL TITLES BY BIG 12 TEAMS X Oklahoma has claimed seven national championships -- more than any other Big 12 program. The Sooners under Bob Stoops earned the conference’s most recent title in 2000 with an Orange Bowl victory over Florida State to cap an undefeated, 13-0 season. OU’s other championships came under Barry Switzer in 1985, 1975 and 1974, and under Bud Wilkinson in 1956, 1955 and 1950 (see graph at right). Nebraska is second with five championships, the most recent coming in 1997. Texas has three with the last title earned in 1970. Colorado (1990) and Texas A&M (1939) each have claimed one national championship.

THE AP AND COACHES’ POLLS

X

Between the Associated Press and coaches’ polls, the most recognized and the longest standing, Oklahoma has achieved 13 national championships since 1936 (finished No. 1 in both polls in some years). No other school in America has combined for as many national crowns under that same formula (see graph at right). The Sooners have been AP’s national champion seven times and have prevailed in the coaches’ poll another six. Oklahoma’s most recent national championship, won in the 2000 season, came under the BCS format. Prior to the introduction of the BCS, the polls were the mode used to select college football’s best team.

BRIAN BOSWORTH

SOONERS WRAP UP CROWN A physical defense featuring three All-Americans and a lightning-quick, option-oriented offense led by true freshman QB Jamelle Holieway propelled Oklahoma to the national crown. OU took a No. 3 national ranking into the Orange Bowl, but toppled No. 1 Penn State, 25-10. That, coupled with Miami’s loss in the Sugar Bowl, vaulted the Sooners to their sixth national championship. Big plays and Tim Lashar’s kicking were the undoing of the Nittany Lions. Holieway, who led OU to eight straight wins after taking over as the starter, hit All-American tight end Keith Jackson on a 71-yard pass play and Lydell Car ran 61 yards for another TD. Lashar added four field goals.

JOE WASHINGTON

SWITZER GETS BACK-TO-BACK 1975: After sailing through its first eight games, Oklahoma suffered a surprising home loss to Kansas in week No. 9. With only two regular season games and a bowl trip left, any hopes for the top prize looked slim. Then OU eked out a 28-27 thriller at Missouri before coming home to dispatch Nebraska, 35-10. With the Big Eight title in tow, the No. 3-rated Sooners, in their first bowl game under Barry Switzer, headed to the Orange Bowl to meet Michigan. OU prevailed in that 14-6 slugfest and got an assist when both No. 1 Ohio State and No. 2 Texas A&M suffered defeats in their bowl games. 1974: This Oklahoma team, the first of three national championship squads for Barry Switzer, controlled the college football world like few others. Only one opponent played the Sooners within 14 points and four failed to score a touchdown. At the same time, OU was averaging a robust 43 points per game. No fewer than seven All-Americans patrolled the field for Oklahoma, including Joe Washington, the runner-up in the Heisman Trophy balloting. The only undefeated team in the country that season, Oklahoma finished at 11-0.

CLENDON THOMAS

NCAA RECORD 47-GAME WIN STREAK 1956: In 1956, teams were prohibited from making bowl appearances in consecutive years, but it made no difference to Oklahoma. This group of Sooners finished 10-0 and led the nation in total offense while logging six shutouts, including a 40-0 blanking of Paul Hornung and Notre Dame. Balance was perhaps the key quality for OU. Two Sooners won player of the year honors. Jerry Tubbs captured the Walter Camp Trophy, while Tommy McDonald won The Sporting News’ top honor. 1955: It wasn’t until the eighth week of the season that the 1955 Oklahoma team took over the No. 1 spot in the rankings. By then, the Sooners were 26 games into a winning streak that would eventually reach an NCAA record of 47. OU polished off an 11-0 record that included an astonishing four straight shutouts to end the regular season. In the Orange Bowl game, No. 3 Maryland did manage six points and a halftime lead, but Oklahoma eventually prevailed, 20-6.

BUD WILKINSON WINS FIRST Oklahoma’s initial national championship, the first of three under legendary head coach Bud Wilkinson, set the football program on a course that regularly meets with high-level success. Consensus All-Americans Leon Heath and Jim Weatherall paved the way and got assistance from a first-year player, Billy Vessels, who scored 15 touchdowns that season. Two seasons later, Vessels captured OU’s first Heisman Trophy. Wilkinson’s first title team featured homegrown talent (he limited his recruiting to a tight radius near the campus), yet achieved on a level that was recognized from coast to coast.

ALL-AMERICANS UNDER BOB STOOPS Sixteen times during Bob Stoops' five seasons at Oklahoma, Sooner players have earned All-America honors. Seven of those came last season when Jammal Brown, Mark Clayton, Tommie Harris, Teddy Lehman, Antonio Perkins, Derrick Strait and Jason White were named All-Americans.

THE FINEST PLAYERS IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL Linebacker Rod Shoate (above) was a three-time All-American, one of two Oklahoma players (Paul “Buddy” Burris) to reach that distinction. Oklahoma set records last season when it had seven players, including quarterback Jason White (left), named to AllAmerica teams.

ALL-AMERICANS KEITH JACKSON

The arithmetic is simple. Oklahoma has played football for 109 years. During that time, OU players have earned All-America honors 138 times. If it's a college football season, the likelihood is that more than one Sooner ranks among the best players in the land. One of college football's greatest programs has been built on some of college football's finest players. That was true in 1913 when Oklahoma produced its first All-American and it is true today when additions to the list are coming at an amazing rate. In the last four years alone, OU has featured 16 All-Americans at eight different positions with four on defense, three on offense and two on special teams. Four players who were named to All-America squads last season -- Jammal Brown, Mark Clayton, Antonio Perkins and Jason White -- return in 2004. They will try to join an elite group of 27 Sooners who have been so honored twice.

AWARD WINNERS UNDER STOOPS In 2003, Oklahoma players garnered seven post-season awards, a standard never before achieved in college football. Prior to last season, the most awards ever won in a single season by one school was five. Jason White won the Heisman Trophy and the Davey O'Brien Award. Derrick Strait captured the Bronko Nagurski and Jim Thorpe Awards, while Teddy Lehman was the recipient of the Chuck Bednarik and Dick Butkus Awards. Tommie Harris, also a finalist for the Nagurski, was presented with the Lombardi Award. The scary thing is that the number could have been higher. Mark Clayton was a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award, Dan Cody was a finalist for the Hendricks Award and Trey DiCarlo was a finalist for the Groza Award. The 2002 season produced more finalists. Lehman was among the final three for the Butkus, while Harris was a finalist for the Lombardi and Bednarik Awards. In 2001, Roy Williams won both the Nagurski and Thorpe Awards while Rocky Calmus won the Butkus. Also that year, Trent Smith was one of three finalists for the John Mackey Award as the nation's top tight end and Jeff Ferguson was a finalist for the Ray Guy Award as the best punter. In 2000, Josh Heupel won the Walter Camp Player of the Year trophy. J.T. Thatcher was named the Mosi Tatupu Award winner as the country's best special teams player. Not presented on the awards circuit, but impressive in their own right are other player of the year honors. Both White (2003) and Heupel (2000) were the Associated Press' Player of the Year. White won the same award from The Sporting News.

Four Heisman Trophy winners and four runners-up tell just part of the story when it comes to Oklahoma's widespread success on the college football awards circuit. OU players have captured 30 national player of the year awards and have also produced the winners of the Chuck Bednarik Award (best defensive player), the Dick Butkus Award (top linebacker), the Lombardi Award (top interior player), the Bronko Nagurski Award (best defensive player), the Davey O'Brien Award (top quarterback), the Outland Trophy (top lineman), the Mosi Tatupu Award (best special teams player) and the Jim Thorpe Award (top defensive back). Under Bob Stoops, OU players have become fixtures at the Home Depot College Football Awards Show televised by ESPN each December from Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla. In the last four years alone, Oklahoma has won a whopping 13 postseason awards, including a record seven in 2003.

2003 LOMBARDI WINNER TOMMIE HARRIS

2001 BUTKUS WINNER ROCKY CALMUS

THE MOST BUTKUS AWARD WINNERS Oklahoma houses more Butkus Award trophies than any other school. Teddy Lehman (2003) is the most recent winner. Other Sooner winners include Rocky Calmus (2001) and the inimitable Brian Bosworth, the award's only two-time winner (1985 and 1986).

THE MOST THORPE AWARD WINNERS Derrick Strait was named the 2003 recipient of the Jim Thorpe Award, presented annually to the nation's best defensive back by the Jim Thorpe Association of Oklahoma City. With Strait’s honor, Oklahoma became the first program to have three Thorpe Award winners. Roy Williams took home the hardware in 2001 and Rickey Dixon shared the honor with Miami's Bennie Blades in 1987.

CONFERENCE TITLES Oklahoma won its first conference championship in 1915 and has since tacked on another 37. In other words, the Sooners average a conference title nearly every two seasons. That’s precisely the pace Bob Stoops’ teams have been on in recent years with Big 12 Conference crowns in 2000 and 2002. That feat merits considerable respect. Under the Big 12 format, teams must first win a divisional crown over five opponents before advancing to meet the other divisional winner at a neutral site. Since Stoops’ arrival, no team has won more Big 12 titles than Oklahoma. Over the years, OU has played in six different conferences, although the place of residence has had little bearing on the Sooners’ success ... they’ve won at least one title in every league in which they have competed.

MEDIA ATTENTION The overwhelming popularity of Oklahoma football is evident on the local, regional and national scenes. Both broadcast and print media flock to wherever the Sooners play to get the story on one of the nation’s premier college football programs.

NATIONAL PROMINENCE From the weekly media luncheon at the Switzer Center to game day, media are watching, then telling the OU story. The result is expansive coverage of the team and players. That coverage manifests itself in newspapers across the country, on the covers of the nation’s most popular sports magazines, on the front page of the most popular sports websites and on the major television networks.

14


NATIONAL ATTENTION Statistics often define a football performance. At Oklahoma, the numbers perhaps best define the overwhelming media attention afforded the Sooner program: * Some 37 Oklahoma games have been televised over the last three seasons. * ESPN GameDay has been in attendance at 13 OU events in the last four years. * Sooner players have appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated seven times in the last four seasons. * Also over the last three seasons, OU has graced the covers of The Sporting News, ESPN The Magazine and numerous preseason publications. * Last season, Bob Stoops appeared on ESPN SportsCenter's Hot Seat and Jason White made guest appearances on Fox TV's Best Damn Sports Show Period and ESPN's Cold Pizza. Not only do the Sooners receive extensive coverage from local and regional outlets, but it also is common for writers and broadcasters from across the nation to cover OU contests. Oklahoma is at the very center of college football and the entire world is watching. From family members to friends back home to NFL scouts, the Sooners are well known.

THE SPOTLIGHT OU players are always in the national spotlight. Kirk Herbstreit meets with Tommie Harris (above) while Rocket Ishmail works on a feature with Antonio Perkins (right).

SOONERS IN THE NFL TOMMIE HARRIS

The best players in college football regularly move on to the National Football League. That would explain why so many Sooners are now in the professional ranks. Such has been the case for many years, but especially in recent times with Oklahoma continuing its dominance on the national level. Over the last three years, a total of 19 OU products have been drafted by or signed free agent contracts with teams in the NFL. In each year, an Oklahoma player has been selected in the first round. In 2003, three players were drafted and two more signed on as free agents. In the history of the OU program, 306 players have been drafted by the NFL including four No. 1 picks. Despite its relative youth when compared with other coaching staffs, the Sooner coaches have done remarkably well at preparing players for the next level. This group of coaches can boast more than 40 NFL players. Two of the current coaches played in the NFL and another coached there, which might also explain the strong preparation for pro football.

MORE THAN ONE MILLION IN THE STANDS For the first time in the program's history, more than one million fans watched the Oklahoma football team play in person last season. Total attendance for the 14 games of the 2003 season was 1,051,631 which included seven home contests at the recently expanded Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. Oklahoma shattered the previous best for average attendance at home for a season in 2003. Although official capacity is listed at 81,207, OU averaged 83,202 fans which was 7,818 more per game than the previous best of 75,384 during the 2001 season. The past five seasons all rank at the top of the list for average home attendance for good reason. During that span, the Sooners have been virtually unbeatable in Norman, going a remarkable 30-1 (.968) under head coach Bob Stoops. The largest crowd ever to watch a game in the history of the state of Oklahoma jammed Memorial Stadium on November 1, 2003. The Sooners romped past rival Oklahoma State, 52-9, in front of 84,027. The Sooners also set attendance records at two other sites: 54,215 at Folsom Field in Boulder against Colorado and 79,451 at the 2004 Nokia Sugar Bowl against LSU. The crowd was the largest for a sporting event in the history of the Lousiana Superdome.

MEMORIAL STADIUM Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium is one of America's most recognized college football cathedrals. Situated on the east side of the Norman campus, this historical facility is the largest sports arena in the state and, following its recent expansion, now ranks among the largest on-campus facilities in the nation. Memorial Stadium's rich heritage has not hindered its evolution, a never-ending growth fueled by the football program's overwhelming popularity. Almost since its inception, the stadium has been a work in progress. That fact holds true today. Using bond money and generous contributions, the stadium has recently undergone a number of changes. The most major of those was a $65 million venture that added 8,000 seats, including 27 suites, on the east side. The expansion was completed in the summer of 2003. The present seating capacity is officially 81,207 although that number was exceeded in each home game last season -- OU averaged 83,202. The largest crowd ever to watch a game in the history of the state of Oklahoma jammed Memorial Stadium on November 1, 2003. The Sooners romped past rival Oklahoma State, 52-9, in front of 84,027. In the two years prior to the stadium upgrade and expansion, renovations were completed in the coaches' offices, locker rooms, sports medicine and weight training facilities. An additional 27 suites in the new east upper deck will open for the 2004 season bringing the total number of suites to 63 (54 east, nine west). Renovations to the Santee Lounge, restroom and concessions facilities and a new brick facade on the west side will further enhance Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium's reputation as one of the finest venues in all of college football.

GAMEDAY IN NORMAN To understand what a Saturday is like in Norman, one must first understand what this sport means to Oklahomans. The Sooners were playing football before this grand land moved from territorial status to statehood. Few if any college football programs are more a part of their surroundings than OU. Sooner fans build an entire week around a home game. Their ranks swell around the chartered buses that deliver OU’s team to Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium prior to kickoff. They strain from the railings trying for just a touch of the team as it walks up the narrow tunnel that leads to the playing surface. And when Oklahoma does take the field, more than 80,000 erupt in a thunderous ovation that sends chills down even the most veteran observers. Gameday at Oklahoma is about witnessing one of the most historic and vibrant programs in college football. It is about pride for a great university. Indeed, it is about pride for an entire state. Gameday here represents football and a whole lot more.

FOOTBALL FACILITIES

JOHN JACOBS FIELD

No football program has done more over the last three years to enhance its facilities than Oklahoma. The $70 million stadium expansion and enhancement is perhaps the most noticeable upgrade, but it is simply the lead project in a plan that has impacted every facet of Sooner football. The team moved into its new locker room prior to the 2001 season. The spacious facility easily houses the entire team and also includes a large lounge area where players can relax watching television, playing video games, listening to music or playing pool. It is common to see members of the team at the locker room at all parts of the day. It truly is a home away from home. Other portions of the Switzer Center have realized improvements, too, including the athletic training area. It features its own hydro-therapy area and x-ray room plus private examination areas, a large rehab space and, of course, the normal taping and treatment stations.

EVEREST TRAINING FACILITY

EVEREST TRAINING FACILITY S On those rare days when the weather forces Oklahoma to practice indoors, or when the team simply desires to work out after sundown, the Sooners can move to the 74,000-square-foot Everest Training Facility. It includes a full playing field, simulated stadium lighting, a full scoreboard with play clocks, LED 40-yard timing devices and a ceiling that hangs 65 feet above the playing surface to allow for all kicking and throwing drills. Opened during the 2002 season, it is considered one of the premier indoor facilities in the entire country. Student-athletes who choose to play at OU train, receive instruction, interact with teammates and compete in some of the newest and most modern facilities in the United States.

BOWL GAMES Thirty-seven bowl appearances and 23 bowl victories have firmly entrenched Oklahoma among the most tradition-rich schools in America. The Sooners have become synonymous with post-season play. At a school where the bowl history is laced with games of historical significance, the last few years have represented another fabulous roll for the Schooner. Twice in the last four seasons the Sooners have played for the national championship, three times they have been in BCS bowls and in all four seasons they played in January bowl games, something that hasn't happened at OU since the 1980s. When Oklahoma won the 2003 Rose Bowl, it became one of only four schools to capture all four BCS games plus the Cotton Bowl. It was fitting that Bob Stoops led that trip to Pasadena. All five of his teams have been to bowls. None of his OU predecessors took even their first three teams to bowls. Oklahoma enjoys favored status among the bowl community, partly for its tradition, but also for its fan following. Some 30,000 ventured to the Rose and Sugar Bowls over the last two years. Regardless of the location, Sooner fans flock to follow a bowl tradition that is as fresh as it is historic.

OU-TEXAS WEEKEND The Oklahoma-Texas game, played each season at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, a location approximately halfway between the two campuses, is one of the country’s most spectacular sporting events. The contest is staged during the State Fair of Texas and is witnessed by a crowd perfectly defined by its color -- half crimson, half burnt orange -- in an atmosphere that is arguably more unique than that found at any other game. Oklahoma has won the last four meetings between the two, all by double digits. The combined score of those games was 177-54. All four added interesting chapters to the legendary series. In 2000, Oklahoma logged the highest series scoring total since 1900 with a 63-14 victory. That stood only until 2003 when a 65-13 Sooner win proved to be the most lopsided and highest scoring in series’ history. In 2001, Roy Williams’ diving hit on Texas quarterback Chris Simms resulted in an interception and touchdown for Teddy Lehman, to sew up victory for the Sooners. In 2002, a near disaster turned into a moment frozen in Sooner lore when Quentin Griffin scooped up a teammate’s fumble and stepped two yards into the end zone to capture a lead OU would never surrender. That’s the way it is at OU-Texas. The games mark time and give players and fans experiences for a lifetime.

EXPLOSIVE OFFENSE

KEJUAN JONES

From 1971 through 2001, the Oklahoma single-season scoring record stood at 534 points. It looked to be the unbreakable mark. Then along came the 2002 team and with the final touchdown in the Rose Bowl, the long-standing record finally fell ... by seven points. OU had a new record, perhaps another to last for decades. Or maybe not. The new number barely made it 11 months. The 2003 Sooners obliterated the mark with 601 points. Long noted for its ability to light up a scoreboard, Oklahoma's football program has never had an era of scoring quite like this. More than productive, the offense has proved itself versatile. In 2002, it produced 1,800-yard rusher Quentin Griffin. One year later, it yielded Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Jason White and one of three finalists for the nation's top receiver honor, the Biletnikoff Award, in Mark Clayton. By land or by air, the Sooners have been potent.

OFFENSIVE JUGGERNAUT X Oklahoma ranked No. 3 in the nation in scoring offense, No. 4 in passing efficiency, No. 12 in passing offense and No. 19 in total offense. X For the first time in school history, Oklahoma scored 50 or more points in four consecutive games. X Oklahoma scored 65 points against Texas, the most ever scored by either team in the long-running series, and got 77 against Texas A&M. X School records were established in passing yards (4,109), first downs (314), interception avoidance (0.22), fewest turnovers (17), fewest turnovers per game (1.2) and touchdown passes (43). X OU completed at least 50% of its passes in 12 of 14 games last season. The Sooners eclipsed 100 rushing yards in eight of the 14 games. X Oklahoma has scored at least one touchdown in 68 consecutive games. X Under Stoops, Oklahoma has 71 touchdowns of 25 yards or longer and 180 scoring drives that lasted less than two minutes. X The Sooners endured just one interception every 43.6 passing attempts as compared to one in every 19.0 tries for the opponents.

JASON WHITE

X Under Bob Stoops, OU has produced its career leader in passing and receiving while also turning out the fourth-leading rusher in school history. X Quarterback Jason White had 17 completions of 40 or more yards last season, a school record. No previous Sooner QB had more than 11. White completed 50% of his passes in all but two games and 60% in nine of 14.

DOMINATING DEFENSE Individual honors reflect team success. Don't think so? Go check the honor rolls for the names of players from losing teams. To the victors go the spoils, and in the case of the Oklahoma defense, those spoils define a run of great defensive play to rival any in the history of college football. Over the past three seasons, Sooner players have won four defensive player of the year awards. Derrick Strait and Roy Williams captured the Nagurski Award and Teddy Lehman won the Bednarik and ABC Defensive Player of the Year honors. The best defense usually has the best defensive players. And it has been quite a defense for OU. The stingy nature of Oklahoma's defense is well-noted. Three-andouts and paltry yardage figures have been the norm in Norman. The less appreciated facet of the unit is a mindset that often changes possession of the ball. Oklahoma has claimed at least one turnover in 59 of its last 66 games and has at least one interception in 46 of the last 54.

DEFENSE RANKS AMONG BEST IN NATION Oklahoma has ranked among the top 25 in all five of the NCAA's main defensive statistical categories in each of the last four seasons:

And just because the defense takes the ball away doesn't mean that the OU offense gets possession. The defense, always blessed with blazing speed, has scored 17 touchdowns and two safeties over the last four years. Game-changing, smart, aggressive, dominant ... that's Oklahoma's defense.

SPECIAL TEAMS JASON CARTER

A strong case can be made that no program has played better on its special teams in recent years than Oklahoma. Time and again, the Sooners have blown games wide open with electric and innovative special teams play. The 2003 season offered more of the same. Most noteworthy last season was the punt return exploits of Antonio Perkins, who set NCAA records with three punt returns for touchdowns against UCLA and four for the season. But Perkins was not alone. Trey DiCarlo set an NCAA record with 74 point after touchdown kicks and was named one of three finalists of the Lou Groza Award (best kicker) in just his sophomore campaign. Mark Bradley, on his first kickoff return attempt as a Sooner, tied a school record by bolting 100 yards at Iowa State. And there was more. A faked punt at Alabama was one of the most talked-about plays of the season. The trickery originated in the third quarter from deep in OU territory. The resulting first down ultimately led to the touchdown that iced the game for Oklahoma. OU also recovered its only onside kick of the season and punched in a two-point conversion. In five years, OU has boasted the winner of the Mosi Tatupu Award (top special teams player) and finalists for both the Groza and Ray Guy (best punter) awards. Also during that time, the Sooners have scored 20 special team touchdowns and one safety. Of the 20 TDs, 10 came on punts, three on kickoffs. And, oh yes, the Sooners also have blocked 17 kicks in that five-year span. Bob Stoops' commitment to special teams play is evidenced by the number of firstteam players who participate on those units. The wisdom of that move, and the program's overall devotion to special teams play, is found in the staggering numbers that relate to every possible facet of the kicking and return game.

BOB STOOPS The kind of admiration Bob Stoops has acheived is the best kind. It’s a byproduct of the success his program has enjoyed and the manner in which he conducted himself. Football observers from coast to coast have witnessed the renaissance authored by Stoops at Oklahoma and often proclaim the Sooner coach among the very best in the land. OU fans would not argue. Although the success of recent seasons all but obliterated the memory, the proud Sooner program had fallen on uncharacteristicly hard times before Stoops hit town. Prior to his first season of 1999, OU had gone five straight years without a winning record and four straight without a bowl game. Since then, OU has five straight winners and five straight bowl games ... and a National Championship ... and two Big 12 crowns ... and a Rose Bowl, Orange Bowl, and Cotton Bowl title to name just a few. Oklahoma football is back in its rightful place among college football's elite with a keen appreciation of the coach who placed it there. The pride has been restored and a nation has noticed.

THE BOB STOOPS ERA AT OKLAHOMA X Stoops’ 55 victories are the most by any Division 1 coach over the first five years of a coaching career since 1900. Oklahoma is 55-11 (.833) since 1999. X In five years, Stoops’ teams have won three Big 12 South crowns, two Big 12 Championships, three January bowl titles and a National Championship. X Stoops’ teams have spent 22 weeks ranked No. 1 in the country. His teams have had a double-digit lead in 56 of 66 games. X Under Stoops, the Sooners have set or tied 62 school records. That mark does not include bowl records or records specific to a position. X OU has produced one Heisman Trophy winner, two AP Players of the Year, two Bronko Nagurski Award winners, two Thorpe Award winners, two Butkus Award winners, one Bednarik Award winner and one Lombardi Award winner. X Stoops has authored two of the seven longest winning streaks in Oklahoma history. His 2000 and 2001 teams won 20 straight, while the 2002 and 2003 teams reeled off 14 in a row. Those victories all came against 1-A opponents. X Under Stoops, Oklahoma has produced 16 All-Americans. The 2003 team alone had seven All-Americans, the second highest total in school history (1975 had eight). X Stoops became the first OU head coach to lead his first three squads to bowl berths. With the Sugar Bowl last season, he has now taken the Sooners to five straight, including four straight in January and three BCS games. X Every home game of Stoops’ tenure, 31 in all, has been sold out. Success realized since his arrival has spawned nearly $80 million in improvements to football facilities. X Under Stoops, OU has had 23 national television appearances, 13 visits from ESPN’s GameDay and seven cover photos on Sports Illustrated.

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING ABOUT BOB STOOPS “Only a handful of them meet the old expectation of coach-as-teacher and model for manly behavior anymore -- Bob Stoops of Oklahoma comes to mind.” - Sally Jenkins, Washington Post "On the sidelines, he talks to you like he is still playing the game. Off the field, he treats you like a real person, like you're his brother, and he wants you to accomplish everything you can." - Kejuan Jones, Oklahoma running back "Stoops’ philosophy is at the same time unbending and liberating. (Stoops) presides over players who are competitive and aggressive, but also respectful and talkative." - David Barron, Houston Chronicle "Bob Stoops is not just one of those great coaches, he may be THE great coach of the era that began five years ago when he took over a University of Oklahoma program that was reeling. If you want to call him the best college coach in the nation, join the chorus. He'll be winning football games for a long time. That's not a prediction, but the absolute truth. Stoops is the real deal, the once-in-a-lifetime -- if you're lucky -- great coach who finds your campus and makes you happy forever." - Mike Celzic, NBCSports.com "(Stoops) has built a monster. There's a new sheriff in college football. It is the Oklahoma Sooners." - Rick Brown, Lakeland (Fla.) Ledger “In this age where political correctness can affect everything from school prayer to country club membership, the world needs Bob Stoops. It needs a guy who trusts his players so completely, he’ll let them try anything, including between-the-legs handoffs. It needs a guy whose swagger is barely visible below the surface but, by gosh, it rises up when he is rubbed the wrong way.” - Dennis Dodd, CBS Sportsline.com "Stoops isn't afraid to risk defeat in pursuit of victory. He is, unquestionably, the best big-game coach in college." - Chris Dufresne, Los Angeles Times "This is a (Sooner) team that’s going to contend for the national championship as long as Bob Stoops wants to." - ABC studio host John Saunders “Coaches aggressively, confidently -- and his team mirrors his attitude.” - Gene Wojciechowski, ESPN The Magazine "Stoops is the best college coach on the planet." - Ivan Maisel, ESPN.com "(Stoops) is just a football genius." - Bud Withers, Seattle Times

ASSISTANT COACHES The raves about Oklahoma assistant coaches have poured in from the day that Bob Stoops assembled his staff in Norman. The fact that Oklahoma has won at such a high level and been so complete as a team speaks to the quality of the coaches.

BO PELINI

So does the opinion several of the nation's athletics directors, three of whom have hired Stoops’ assistant coaches as head coaches. That in itself is lofty praise. The fact that two of them (the third is just now in his first season as a head coach) have already taken their teams to bowl games only adds further validation. Detailed organization, measured preparation, insightful evaluation and just plain, old hard work make up the philosophy for the Sooner coaches. It is impossible to find an area in which they do not score well. The current staff has combined to coach in 68 bowl games and played in another 19. The group has coached 43 players with National Football League experience, while two of these coaches were NFL players and another coached there. Identifying and recruiting talent, coaching talent to play at its peak and preparing players for a possible career in professional football ... nobody does it better than Oklahoma.

BOOMING SOONERS THIS IS OKLAHOMA FOOTBALL

THE PINNACLE OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL

X The 2003 squad was the 10th at Oklahoma since 1938 to finish the regular season unbeaten and untied (1938, 1949, 1950, 1954, 1955, 1956, 1974, 1987, 2000, 2003).

The 2003 Sooners spent the entire season ranked among the top three nationally, including 15 weeks at No. 1. Oklahoma was back in the national championship game for the second time in the last four years, was in a BCS game for the third time in four years and was in a January bowl contest for a fourth consecutive season.

X The 2003 squad was the first in school history to play before one million fans in a season. Some 1,057,631 saw the 14 games. A Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium record was set with 84,027 fans for the Oklahoma State game. The game also marked the largest attendence for a sporting event in the history of the state.

The team produced an unprecedented seven national award winners and AllAmericans, plus a trio of national coach of the year awards for Bob Stoops.

X The 2003 Sooners were the most individually decorated team in college football history with seven All-Americans. The squad also produced seven award winners including the Heisman, Bednarik, Butkus, Lombardi, Nagurski, O’Brien and Thorpe.

RECORD SEVEN SOONERS EARN ALL-AMERICA Oklahoma has averaged more than one All-American per year since it began playing football more than 100 years ago. To date, OU players have received the prestigious recognition 138 times. Last year, that list grew by seven including offensive tackle Jammal Brown, receiver Mark Clayton, defensive tackle Tommie Harris, linebacker Teddy Lehman, return specialist/defensive back Antonio Perkins (above), defensive back Derrick Strait and quarterback Jason White. The Sooners saw an unprecedented five representatives named to both the Associated Press and American Football Coaches Association teams.

2004 OU RECRUITING CLASS Once again in the spring of 2004, Oklahoma signed a recruiting class revered nation-wide as one of the top five among Division I schools. The class included 18 players from six states. Twelve hailed from Texas, two from Oklahoma and one each from California, Florida, Illinois and Ohio. Playing for Oklahoma has become a popular decision among the top prospects. With OU's team taking up steady residence among the nation's top 10 and with Sooner players regularly pulling in national acclaim from the most recognized awards to the NFL, that popularity stretches from coast to coast.

WHY OU? Current OU football players and their families share their reasons for choosing to come to the University of Oklahoma and play for the Sooners:

“THE OKLAHOMA TRADITION” "I didn't know where I was going until I heard Coach Stoops' voice on the other end of the phone. I knew right then and there that I wanted to go to Oklahoma. There was always a special place in my heart for OU. Growing up only 20 minutes away, I was aware of the winning tradition, national championships and bowl success that they had and of all the great players they produced." - J.D. Runnels, Junior fullback (Midwest City, Okla.)

“THE CAMARADERIE” "The camaraderie in this program is great. For the people who are going to be far from home for an extended period of time, I would think that would be very important. Everybody meshes so well here. You're welcomed with open arms and then you're part of a very close-knit group. I'm not sure I realized that fact about us as soon as I should have, but it's a big thing to me now." - Dan Cody, Senior defensive end (Ada, Okla.)

“THE BEST PLAYERS GET TO PLAY” “The coaching staff impressed me more than any other we dealt with during the recruiting process. They really meant what they said. The best players really do get to play, no matter what. That’s how you win championships. And the fans here are great. They root for us, but they care about us as people, too.” - Dusty Dvoracek, Senior defensive tackle (Lake Dallas, Texas)

“THE CITY OF NORMAN” “One of the things I liked best on my recruiting trip was the city of Norman. Coming from a town like Waco, I found a lot of similarities in the two cities. I really like the pace of life here and I knew I wouldn’t have to make that big of an adjustment when I got here.” - Vince Carter, Senior center (Waco, Texas)

44


“HE FELT LIKE IT WAS A FAMILY” "When he went for his campus visit, he really hit it off with the coaches, especially his position coach. Once that happened, no one else really had a chance. He also felt like it was a family to him and we both liked that aspect. Of course, I was more focused on the academics and what kind of education he would receive and we thought OU was the best place for that as well." - Barnette Jones, mother of Brandon Jones Senior wide receiver (Texarkana, Texas)

“THE INCREDIBLE ATMOSPHERE” "When I took my recruiting trip to Norman, I could sense the incredible atmosphere that surrounded the program. The coaches, players and fans are special.” - Donte Nicholson Senior defensive back (Walnut, Calif.)

“TO PLAY WITH THE BEST” "During our recruiting process, we determined that OU had the best defensive team in the country. So, we sent Brodney to play with the best defense in the nation." - Rose Brimmer, mother of Brodney Pool Junior safety (Houston, Texas)

“THEY BRING OUT THE BEST IN YOU” "When you're at Oklahoma, you're around people who bring out the best in you. You expect it to be that way with the coaches, and our coaches are great about that, but a big part of it is the players. Being average here is not good enough and the other players on the team push you to expect more of yourself." - Brandon Shelby, Senior cornerback (Kansas City, Mo.)

NORMAN/OKC METRO Norman is an ever-changing city of nearly 90,000 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 Land Rush 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 wanted 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 state’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 “a university town with a championship spirit.” Norman continually exhibits its love for sports by hosting numerous local and national athletic events.

THE OKLAHOMA STATE CAPITOL

NORMAN, HOME OF THE UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA The city also showcases local and regional artists in its annual May Fair. In addition, through the university’s School of Drama, School of Dance and the School of Music, stage productions are offered year round. Cultural activities are unlimited in Norman, making it the ideal backdrop for the University of Oklahoma. As home to people of all ethnic and educational backgrounds, the city has something to offer everyone. Norman is home to a variety of enriching events and attractions, including the Sooner Theater, which hosts a series of entertaining theatrical performances produced by locally-based talent and touring companies. The $44 million Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History, a state-of-the-art facility designed to display a collection of historical and natural science items that trace the southwest’s development since prehistoric times, opened in May 2000. History buffs will also enjoy the Cleveland Country Historical House which holds exhibits relating to the development of this area of the state. For art enthusiasts, the Fred Jones Jr. Memorial Art Center houses permanent collections, nationally and world-renowned traveling exhibits as well as a yearly student art show. The museum has recently added the Weitzenhoffer Collection of French Impressionist paintings -- the single most important gift of art ever given to a U.S. public university. Multi-screen theaters in Norman offer a wide range of movie options. Community theater and dance performances continue to be a favorite in Norman with productions by several groups. With the Cimarron Circuit Opera Company and the annual Jazz in June celebration, Norman also offers a great opportunity to hear a variety of musical artists on almost any night of the week. Maintaining a progressive approach to the future while remembering its history, Norman continues to be a well-balanced community, proud to be the home of the University of Oklahoma.

DOWNTOWN OKLAHOMA CITY

BRICKTOWN IN DOWNTOWN OKC

OKLAHOMA CITY Oklahoma City, the capital of Oklahoma, is located just 18 miles north of the Norman campus. It was the first city settled in the Land Run of 1889 because of its position at the center of the state. Oklahoma City offers a variety of attractions and activities different from any other place in the country. Just over a century ago, the site of Oklahoma City was a grass-and-timbered land of gently rolling hills flattening out into prairie in the west. Today, Oklahoma City sprawls across 625 square miles of America's heartland. The city’s metro population numbers more than a million -- a third of the entire state's population.

STATE FAIR OF OKLAHOMA

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. 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 two semi-professional sports teams and the host of the NCAA College Softball World Series. The Oklahoma RedHawks, are the Triple-A baseball affiliate of the Texas Rangers. The team plays in the 13,066-seat SBC Bricktown Ballpark, one of the plushest venues in all of minor league sports.

COMMUNITY SERVICE OU lives by a clear and strong motto in dealing with its student-athletes ... Inspiring Champions for Today, Preparing Leaders for Tomorrow. To fulfill that promise, the athletics department and football program take an active role in a number of community service projects. Sooner student-athletes are exposed to life outside of sports and school work with opportunities to serve and help others. Individually, football players serve with numerous groups. Two of their largest projects include a free football clinic for underprivileged youth and the distribution of food that is donated by OU fans at a designated home game. These events and many others are highly interactive and tend to inspire smiles all around. Oklahoma’s student-athletes recognize that wearing the Crimson and Cream means representing a popular sports program and themselves as individuals. They are encouraged to respond to a public that adores them, while learning important lessons about making a positive impact in the lives of others and in the community in which they live.

GIVING BACK Each year on the morning of the spring football game, the Sooners provide a complimentary football clinic for a select group of youth from throughout the central Oklahoma region. The team also plays an active role in a food drive that takes place near the Thanksgiving holiday. OU fans donate food at a game and players help in the distribution the following Monday.

A TRADITION OF BUILDING CHAMPIONS OU head strength and conditioning coach Jerry Schmidt owns three college football national championship rings. Current and former Sooner standouts routinely cite Schmidt as one of the key contributors to their success. Schmidt has worked with four Heisman Trophy winners including Jason White (Okahoma), Danny Wuerffel (Florida), Barry Sanders (Oklahoma State) and Tim Brown (Notre Dame) in addition to coaching 21 NFL first-round draft picks.

NFL SCOUTS FLOCK TO OU PRO DAY The OU football program hosts NFL coaches and scouts each spring on campus in Norman prior to the NFL Draft. The OU Pro Day facilitates the evaluation process for the professional football staffs and provides a familiar environment for players. Kansas City Chiefs head coach Dick Vermeil, Houston Texans head coach Dom Capers and Houston general manager Charley Casserly, along with representatives from every team, were among the 100 or so NFL personnel that attended the 2004 event.

"When we went to Oklahoma, those kids were fired up to see us. They were ready to work out. They did every drill we asked them to do and asked if we wanted more. That's the kind of attitude you expect to see when a kid's future as an NFL player's at stake. You expect them to be excited and cooperative." - NFL Scout quoted from the Houston Chronicle

SOONER POWER The best testimony for what Jerry Schmidt and his staff do with Oklahoma’s players comes from former Oklahoma players -- those in professional football. It’s not uncommon for members of that select fraternity to return to Norman for part of their off-season training regimen. During their time in the Sooner program, they learned the quality of the strength and conditioning staff at OU. The program made such an impact on Dallas Cowboys star Roy Williams that he made a $100,000 donation to benefit the strength facilities. What made Williams’ gift especially unique was that he made it in his rookie season with the Cowboys. Now the weight room in the new Everest Training Center carries his name. Schmidt has been involved with three football national championships at three schools. His success is no coincidence. Now in his sixth year in Norman, he is roundly recognized nationally as one of the best in the business.

APPRECIATION FROM THE PRO RANKS Former Sooner All-American and Dallas Cowboys safety Roy Williams was honored by OU athletics director Joe Castiglione and head football coach Bob Stoops for his gift toward a new strength training facility at the Everest Training Center. The Roy Williams Strength Training Facility complements the main Robin Siegfried and Family Strength and Conditioning Center, located at the Switzer Center. "I am in a position to help and I just wanted to give something back to a place that has been very special to me," said Williams. "I don't know if I would be where I am today without OU.”

THE UNIVERSITY The University of Oklahoma community is experiencing a golden era in the history of a great institution. Enrollment is on the rise, the quality of new student applications is soaring and donor confidence is at an all-time high. Over the last six years, OU's donor base has undergone a staggering expansion from 17,000 to 73,000. That confidence in President David L. Boren and the upward movement of the university as a whole has led to signficant changes on the university landscape. Building projects abound, meaning that OU faculty, staff and students will enjoy a learning environment of the highest order for many years to come. Indeed, the state of Oklahoma will enjoy resources that impact everything from medical science to the arts as a result of this time in the university's history. The University of Oklahoma has long embraced the great tradition of Sooner athletics. With competitive facilities all located on the main campus, including several near the heart of the university, student-athletes and their classmates mingle comfortably in an environment that fosters an attitude of excellence, regardless of the endeavor.

53


EXCELLENCE Winning is an attitude that permeates the entire University of Oklahoma athletics program. Championships and post-season play are synonymous with practically ever Sooner sport. In 2003-04, Oklahoma finished among the top 15 schools nationally in All Sports competition and sent teams or individuals into post-season competition in 18 of 20 sports. During the 2001-02 school year, when the football program knocked down 11 wins and a Cotton Bowl victory, both the men’s and women’s basketball teams advanced to the Final Four. The 74 combined wins by football and the two basketball teams were more than any school ever notched among those three sports. Football, with seven national titles, has certainly been a trend setter for OU, but championship caliber teams and student-athletes are found throughout the Sooner program.

MARITA HYNES FIELD AT THE OU SOFTBALL COMPLEX

FANTASTIC FACILITIES Since January of 1999, Oklahoma has raised more than $112 million in private contributions to address athletics facilities. The main focus of that campaign was the Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, but in keeping with the department’s desire for across-the-board success, many sports realized tremendous improvements. The $17.2 million renovation of Lloyd Noble Center, which gave the Sooner basketball programs one of the best competitive and practice facilities in the nation, was completed in the fall of 2001. The Headington Family Tennis Center also was completed in 2001. In addition, the Everest Training Facility, one of the largest indoor practice areas in the country, was completed for the 2002 postseason. A full renovation of the John Jacobs Track & Field Complex was finished in time to host the 2004 Big 12 Outdoor Track & Field Championships. Other completed projects include a redesign of the Sooner football practice fields; the Port Robertson Wrestling Facility; the Sooner Soccer Complex and John Crain Field which opened for competition in September 2000; as well as additional renovations to L. Dale Mitchell Park, the Charlie Coe Golf Learning Center, the OU Softball Complex and Barry Switzer Center. A master plan has been developed which includes additional renovations and improvements in the future.

HEADINGTON FAMILY TENNIS CENTER

COMMITTED TO THE ENTIRE PROGRAM In the last four years alone, 12 different OU teams have realized a new facility, a facility enhancement or a gift that will allow progress towards a facility upgrade. Recent projects include the L. Dale Mitchell Baseball Stadium, the Bob & Ann Coleman Men’s Basketball Facility, the John Jacobs Track & Field Complex, the McCasland Fieldhouse and the Headington Family Tennis Center.

ACADEMIC SUCCESS The recent Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium expansion and improvement included remodeled office space in the facility’s north end. That largest piece of that project was the Prentice Gautt Academic Center. Some 35,000 square feet are dedicated to the academic pursuits of Sooner student-athletes. Indeed, there is considerable emphasis on classroom performance at OU.

GRADUATION RATES OF 2003 BCS TEAMS Source: Football team only rates, Centre (Pa.) Daily Times

That commitment has reaped great results. Last year, OU received the NCAA Academic Achievement Award, sponsored by USA Today, while Renaldo Works was one of 14 Scholar-Athletes named by the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame. It is the most prestigious individual academic honor in college football. The center staff certainly has achievement has its focus, a fact reflected in a graduation rate that exceeds that of OU’s general student body. In addition to its academic work, the staff assists in several life skills areas designed to enrich students in a broad range of areas. For instance, OU recently became one of the first athletics departments in the nation to add a staff psychologist to offer student-athletes professional counseling and performance enhancement services.

ATHLETICS DEPARTMENT CAREER FAIR Each year, more than 50 businesses attend the career fair hosted in the Prentice Gautt Academic Center. The event is open only to Sooner studentathletes and offers employers and job seekers time to meet one-on-one to discuss opportunities.

OU-Texas Credentials Those interested in covering the annual Oklahoma-Texas game at Dallas will need to make a separate request for credentials. Each school handles the requests from its regular pool of media. Aside from national media, only season credential holders are eligible. Oklahoma will serve as the host school this year. Any media not based in the state of Texas should contact the OU Athletics Media Relations Office with credentials requests. OU-Texas credentials will be distributed to local media at the Tuesday media luncheon in Norman. Any credentials not claimed that day will be available the Friday before the game at a pick-up location in the Hyatt Regency/Dallas (times and exact location TBA). No credentials will be mailed, but outlets willing to provide an overnight account number no later than Wednesday of game week may receive them in that manner. Credential Pick-up Credentials may be picked up from the media relations office during the week or from media will call (Gate 2) at Memorial Stadium on game day. Photo identification is required for pick up. Each media representative must claim his or her pass. No group pick ups are allowed. Parking Passes Parking passes are in a limited supply and will be prioritized similar to the way credentials are issued. Most media parking is located in the Asp Ave. Parking Facility located adjacent to the stadium, one half block north of the Asp/Lindsey intersection.

Barry began broadcasting Norman High School football and basketball games in 1956. In 1961, he won a tryout over 13 other broadcasters to become the play-by-play commentator for University of Oklahoma football and basketball, a position he held from 1961-72. From 1973-90, he was the play-by-play announcer for Oklahoma State football and basketball, but returned to the OU microphone in 1991. The list of awards and honors won by Barry is impressive. He has been elected by his peers as Oklahoma’s Sportscaster of the Year 15 times, voted the Oklahoma Gazette Newspaper Top Sportscaster in a readers’ poll, named in 1998 to the Oklahoma Journalism Hall of Fame, the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame and Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame in 1999. He is a former member of the Board of Directors of the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association and he served on many Norman boards as well. Barry, who resides in Norman, joined KFOR-TV in Oklahoma City in 1966 and was the long-time sports director. He remains on the station’s sports staff, but handed the sports director’s reins to his son, Bob, Jr., in 1996. Barry’s partner in the broadcast booth is color commentator Merv Johnson, now in his 26th year on the football staff. He served as a Sooner assistant coach from 1987-97 and has been the director of football operations and a special assistant to the athletics director since 1998. Johnson has been on the radio broadcasts since 1999. His complete bio appears on page 104. Sideline commentary is provided by Mark Rodgers, who is now in his third season with the network. Rodgers is the sports director at KOCO-TV (ABC) in Oklahoma City.

BIG 12 CONFERENCE As the Big 12 Conference approaches the end of its first decade of intercollegiate activity, dedication to several tenets of the finer points of athletics helps in the continued establishment of a strong tradition. The Big 12 reached the 10-year mark of its founding--Feb. 25, 1994—in 2004 and celebrates student-athletes, top-flight competition, academic reform measures, scholarship, sportsmanship, and competitive success with equity as it comes closer to the 10th anniversary of intraconference activity on Aug. 31, 2006. Baylor, Colorado, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech combined forces in ‘94 and formed the Big 12 Conference—a league covering seven states and encompassing over 40 million people (2000 U.S. census). The conference pays particular attention to sportsmanship and a level field of play for the 4,500-plus student-athletes in 21 sports. Those competing and coaching in the Big 12 seek maximum training on the fields and courts as well as in the classroom and community.

Sportsmanship has been an item high on the Big 12 agenda since Commissioner Kevin L. Weiberg became the league’s third chief executive in Dec., 1998. The Conference developed and has maintained a Sportsmanship Statement which applies to all student-athletes, coaches and administrators throughout the league. The Big 12 also honors one male and female studentathlete each year as Big 12 Sportspersons of the Year. The level playing field for participants in all Big 12 sports also figures into competitive equity. This does not deny the potential for national team or individual champions in any sport but seeks to provide an avenue in which upand-coming student-athletes can display their top individual talents within the framework of Conference and NCAA sports’ guidelines. Not only has the Big 12 fostered a spirit of conviviality and excitement with newfound rivalries, but the Conference organization has given rise to several related, cooperative ventures—Big 12 cities, libraries, campus security organizations, Chambers of Commerce, tourism/visitors’ bureaus, information exchanges, sports medicine associations, and campus public information offices, among others. The solid athletics’ traditions at the 12 schools are evident as student-athletes/alumni have claimed more than 900 NCAA crowns and over 170 national team championships through July, 2004. Commissioner Weiberg, acting in accord with the Big 12 Board of Directors, first contracted most major championship sites and dates through the 2004-05 academic year in 1999. The Big 12 also continued the process of determining future championships’ dates and sites beyond the 200405 term during the 2003-04 academic year. The league office also has negotiated critical television, radio and print contracts and ongoing bowl agreements in recent months. Added in 2002-03 were agreements with TBS Superstation to carry Big 12 football games in prime time slots, with College Sports Television (CSTV) for more regional and national telecasts, and expanded video streaming opportunities for several Olympic sports within the league with Fox Sports Net and FoxSports.com.

Along with this competitive excellence, scholarship has been and continues to be a point of emphasis with the Big 12. There are 19 academic honor teams (first and second units), and the semiannual Commissioner’s Honor Roll salutes student-athletes who have achieved 3.0 averages (4.0 grading scale) in the semester previous to the announcement. Annually, as many as 50-60 student-athletes from the league make these teams with perfect 4.0 grade point averages. Each member institution also nominates a male or female student-athlete for one of the prestigious Big 12 Conference postgraduate scholarships at the end of the academic year. A total of 100-plus (88 in the first seven years of the program) aspiring scholars have received more then $500,000 in postgraduate financial aid during the first eight years of the program.

Almost six million fans who attended championships or tournaments in Big 12 postseason activity since 1996 can attest that they are viewing some of the nation’s finest student-athletes, coaches and officials. Through television financial agreements, high levels of competition, postseason play, football bowl, and NCAA invitations, the Big 12 has distributed over $550 million to its members since the 1996-97 fiscal year. Commissioners of the conference have included Steve Hatchell from Mar., 1995-May, 1998, Dave Martin (interim) from May-Dec., 1998, and Kevin L. Weiberg from Dec., 1998-present.

BOWL LINEUP THE BOWL CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES Starting in 1998, the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) has determined the Division I-A National Champion in football. The BCS, which runs through the 2005 regular season and 2006 bowl season, consists of the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, FedEx Orange Bowl, Rose Bowl and Nokia Sugar Bowl. Conferences with automatic berths include the Atlantic Coast, Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-10 and the Southeastern conferences. The BCS also notes the importance of regional consideration regarding team selection. Specifically, as participating members of the BCS, the four BCS Bowls will host the following conference champions in the years the national championship game is not played at their site. Regional consideration tie-ins include the ACC or Big East champion in the Orange Bowl, the SEC champion in the Sugar Bowl, the Big Ten and the Pac-10 champion in the Rose Bowl and the Big 12 champion in the Fiesta Bowl. Should a BCS Bowl's regional tie-in champion be ranked number one or two in the final BCS standings, when such bowl is not hosting the national championship game, the number one or two ranked team shall move to the national championship game and the Bowl shall select a replacement team from the BCS pool of eligible teams. The pool will consist of any Division IA team that is ranked among the Top 12 in the final BCS standings and has achieved nine wins during the regular season excluding NCAA-exempted contests. Through a conference revenue sharing plan, the BCS group will distribute over $40 million to non-participating BCS institutions during its 8-year term. Those monies go to Division I-A and I-AA conferences in support of the game of college football. Additionally, the BCS distributes $200,000 per year to the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame.

This coming season, BCS participants will receive between $13.87-17.05 million depending on the conference affiliation of the at-large participants. Should both at-large participants come from outside the BCS conferences – ACC, Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-10 or SEC – those participants will receive $13.87 million. If one or both at-large selections come from within the original BCS group, the first conference participant shall receive $13.87 million and the second participant from that same conference shall receive a minimum of 4.5 million. The remaining dollars (the difference between $13.87 million and $4.5 million) will be split among the BCS conferences that have just one participant.

SEASON OUTLOOK The trophy case is a liar, or so it appears. Just five years into Bob Stoops' stint at Oklahoma, the hardware has accumulated at such a rate as to suggest a much longer tenure. Three bowl championships, two conference crowns, a national championship and the cavalcade of individual awards those accomplishments attract have left the Switzer Center shelves sagging under the weight of significant success. And, yes, it all came about in just five seasons. The 2003 season yielded more of the same. It offered up 12 victories, 15 weeks at No. 1, the Big 12 Conference South title and another trip to the national championship game. From that team, a long list of players returns, especially on offense, where OU will have more experience than at any time since the current head coach arrived. Defensively, a few marquee names must be replaced, but seven starters return. They’ll be bolstered by a group of younger players produced by recent recruiting success. Like the offense, the special teams, particularly in the skill positions, will be manned by familiar names. The 2004 season has the makings of another banner campaign at Oklahoma, the kind that could add to the disproportinately successful story being told in that trophy case. JASON WHITE

OFFENSE With 10 starters and a host of prominent reserves returning, the offense will have a familiar look. Another season in the maturation process should strengthen a unit that smashed numerous records last season. The Sooners possess an ability to throw that compares favorably with any team in the land, and, just one season removed from an 1,800-yard rusher, appears poised to balance the throwing arsenal with a top-rate ground game.

QUARTERBACK Players with starting experience at the position: Jason White Stories don't come much better than that of Jason White. Two reconstructive knee surgeries and a Heisman Trophy all in the span of three years is the stuff of legend. And now a curtain call? White, who fired 40 touchdowns and just 10 interceptions last season, was not saddled with a long list of expectations last season and won't be prevailed upon for a sensational encore this time around either. His work ethic and perseverance have made him a model of leadership, a key component for any quarterback. His assignment will match that of a year ago - utilize the other 10 on the field and make smart plays. With his accuracy and uncanny deep throws, that's usually more than enough. White's backup last season was Paul Thompson, now a junior. Thompson's mature demeanor and overall ability make him a legitimate threat to opposing defenses. He is not nearly as game tested as White, but his quick release and potent running skills present a versatile package. The only other returning player at QB is Tommy Grady, who at 6-7 is one of the tallest players on the team. Grady redshirted last season and saw extensive scout team duty. He obviously has the stature to see much of the field. He also has a strong arm and effortless motion, even on long passes. Oklahoma also welcomes Rhett Bomar, who was rated by many recruiting services as the top high school quarterback in the nation for 2003.

MARK CLAYTON

RUNNING BACK

RECEIVERS

Players with starting experience at the position: Kejuan Jones, J.D. Runnels

Players with starting experience at the position: Mark Clayton, Brandon Jones, Will Peoples, Jejuan Rankins, Travis Wilson

Two years ago, Kejuan Jones was OU's short-yardage back. Last season, while sharing time with Renaldo Works, he evolved into a more typical role. Works' graduation leaves Jones, who has quietly rushed for 1,532 yards in two seasons as either a reserve or part-time starter, as the Sooners' most seasoned back. The only other running back on the roster that has seen game action is shifty Donta Hickson, a junior. Beyond that, redshirt freshmen Tashard Choice, Courtney Tennial and Jacob Gutierrez will all vie for playing time. A pair of true freshmen present even more options. Adrian Peterson, a fall arrival, was thought by many to be the top high school back in the nation last season. D.J. Wolfe, a highly regarded prep player, graduated high school at semester and was in camp for spring practices. At fullback, Oklahoma returns J.D. Runnels, easily the most underrated player on the team. Primarily a blocker, he has also proved himself a capable receiver. Runnels is reliable, smart and as tough as they come. His back-up may be Dan Townsend, one of the more pleasant surprises on last year's team, or Dane Zaslaw, who moved from linebacker during spring practices.

Speed, elusiveness, strength ‌ they all reside at Oklahoma's receiver position. In fact, the only commodity that may be in better supply is experience. The Sooner receiving corps will be a strength for this team. Mark Clayton set six school records last season on his way to All-America honors and a spot among the three finalists for the Biletnikoff Award. Surehanded, fast and slippery, Clayton proved himself so valuable that the coaches even devised running plays for him late in the 2003 campaign. Few receivers in college football are comparable when it comes to gaining yards after the catch. Fellow seniors Brandon Jones and Will Peoples present taller targets. Jones' speed and strength make him perhaps the best deep threat of the group. Peoples, who was bothered by injuries last season, takes a backseat to nobody on the team when it comes to pure athletic ability. Juniors Jejuan Rankins and Travis Wilson are mindful of Clayton and Jones, respectively. Rankins is dangerous with the ball in his hands and Wilson is a physical presence. While not a starter for OU last season, Mark Bradley certainly deserves mention. He threw one touchdown pass, caught one and took his first collegiate attempt at a kickoff return 100 yards for another score. When it comes to combining strength and speed, perhaps nobody on the team does so better than Bradley. Incoming freshmen Quentin Chaney, Lendy Holmes and Fred Strong are exciting prospects, as well.

SEASON OUTLOOK TIGHT ENDS

OFFENSIVE LINE

Players with starting experience at the position: Chris Chester, James Moses

Players with starting experience at the position: Jammal Brown, Chris Bush, Vince Carter, Kelvin Chaisson, Davin Joseph, Chris Messner, Wes Sims

This coaching staff has produced three players who are now tight ends on NFL rosters. Their appreciation for the position is well-documented. The productivity dropped somewhat last year as a less-experienced group gained game snaps. Starter Lance Donley exhausted his eligibility but a deep group returns. Chris Chester, the best blocker in the group, and James Moses return after logging starts last season. Willie Roberts did not get a start, but will be one of three trying to win the starting job. The 6-7 junior college product started behind the conditioning eight ball last August, but that fact never masked his athletic ability. Coaches feel that a full year in the weight room may have Roberts on the verge of a breakout. One of the more intriguing candidates is Joe Jon Finley. While not a typical tight end in terms of bulk, he is loaded with football savvy and an ability to make plays. The redshirt freshman will challenge for the position.

All five starters return. Three of the five have been starters for three seasons and all five have been starters for all or part of two seasons. The group owns 133 combined starting assignments at Oklahoma. No pun intended, suffice it to say that the Sooner offensive line has been around the block. Vince Carter was a finalist for last season's Rimington Award, the honor bestowed on the best center in the college game. He is the likely bet at center, although Chris Bush, the most versatile lineman in the group, will make a push. Jammal Brown, the behemoth at right tackle, was dominating last season. Look for him to be mentioned prominently for some of college football's top honors. Brown's counterpart on the left side, Wes Sims, has been a starter since day one at OU. Those looking to work their way into the rotation are Chris Messner, who started the opener last season on the left side, and promising redshirt freshman Akim Millington. The guards, both juniors, are the only non-seniors slated for starting duty. Kelvin Chaisson and Davin Joseph both claimed starting roles late in the 2002 campaign. They're solid players who may make the most progress this season after getting one full season under their respective belts.

SEASON OUTLOOK DEFENSIVE ENDS

DEFENSE Seven starters return from one of the nation's most dominant defenses. The four who are missing were All-Americans during their time at Oklahoma. Hence, there are positions to fill. Bednarik and Butkus awards winner Teddy Lehman, a linebacker, and Nagurski and Thorpe awards winner Derrick Strait, a cornerback, exhausted their eligibility in 2003, as did 2002 All-American Brandon Everage, a free safety. Lombardi Award winner Tommie Harris, a defensive tackle, opted to bypass his senior season at OU to enter the NFL draft. Counting those losses as significant would be an understatement. Those set to step in share similar traits, not the least of which is speed. Despite the household natures of the names mentioned above, the defense is unlikely to suffer a dramatic dropoff, at least on paper. The recruiting efforts have been that good. The veteran nature of those who do return also could lessen the blow.

Players with starting experience at the position: Larry Birdine, Dan Cody, Jonathan Jackson The unvarnished truth is that the defensive end position will likely be one of the strongest on the team. Dan Cody and Jonathan Jackson have played in a combined 70 games at Oklahoma and both are on the preseason watch list for the Hendricks Award. Cody led the team in sacks last season with 10 and Jackson has topped the club in hurries in each of the last two, including his total of 26 in '03. They combine a ton of knowhow with outstanding athletic traits and dogged tenacity. The group tucked in behind those two seniors may feature more of the same. Larry Birdine got a start at Colorado last season when Cody was sidelined with an injury. He managed four sacks, one each in four different games, a testimony to his consistency. Calvin Thibodeaux has seen game time, too, and will push for more. Redshirt freshmen Alonzo Dotson and John Williams raised a lot of eyebrows on the scout team last season. Both have the ability to make a serious run at playing time.

DEFENSIVE LINE Players with starting experience at the position: Dusty Dvoracek, Lynn McGruder Dusty Dvoracek is not the biggest defensive tackle in college football, but few are better at getting from point A to point B. And point B is usually in the opposing backfield. Dvoracek is a playmaker as evidenced by the fact that his 16 tackles for loss and seven sacks were tops among OU's interior players last year. Lynn McGruder was a much-heralded high school product who transferred to Oklahoma from Tennessee. He has been a steady contributor as part of a four-man rotation over the last two seasons. The door swings open for him a bit this season with the graduation of Kory Klein and the early departure of Tommie Harris. The backup roles will take some sorting out among a group of players with no I-A playing experience. Redshirt freshmen Lawrence Dampeer, Carl Pendleton and Steven Coleman fall into that category, as does junior college transfer Remi Ayodele, who arrives in August. Oklahoma still has good talent on its defensive interior. A little good fortune in the injury department will allow the Sooners to develop the depth at a reasonable rate.

LINEBACKERS Players with starting experience at the position: Gayron Allen, Wayne Chambers, Lance Mitchell

LANCE MITCHELL

If there is such a thing as a blessing in disguise, the blessing's name is Lance Mitchell. OU's physically imposing middle linebacker went down with a torn ACL in the third game of the 2003 season. The unfortunate mishap occurred early enough that Mitchell was able to claim a medical redshirt. The void forced OU to get a pair of younger players on the field for the balance of the season. Now, in 2004, when it was anticipated that OU would return no starters at linebacker, the Sooners, in fact, return three - Mitchell and the two who played in his stead, Gayron Allen and Wayne Chambers. The silver lining to that gray day last September may reveal itself early in this season. Chambers started five games after Mitchell went down then was slowed by an injury himself. Allen stepped in and started the last five games. With Mitchell back, OU's staff will have to determine how to slot Allen and Chambers. Gone is Butkus award winner Teddy Lehman, a lynch pin in OU's success over the previous three seasons. Likewise, Oklahoma will have to do without Pasha Jackson, a starter on the strong side for the last two years. On the strong side, hard-hitting Clint Ingram and talented redshirt freshman Demarrio Pleasant will vie for time. In the middle, it’s Mitchell, Chambers and Zach Latimer, a converted defensive end whose spring performance vaulted him squarely into the mainstream at the position. The weakside spot will feature Allen, sophomore Lewis Baker, who saw action last season as a true freshman, and Rufus Alexander, who missed part of last season with a knee injury. Russell Dennison, the kamikaze member of the Sooner special teams, is another player who will push for time.

DEFENSIVE BACKS Players with starting experience at the position: Eric Bassey, Donte Nicholson, Brodney Pool, Antonio Perkins It took a mighty big spotlight to capture Oklahoma's secondary last season. Cornerback Derrick Strait was nailing down the Nagurski and Thorpe Awards, while former All-American Brandon Everage was his same reckless self at free safety. Donte Nicholson was the consensus Big 12 Defensive Newcomer of the Year at strong safety, Brodney Pool was the team's leader in interceptions (7) and Antonio Perkins, perhaps best known for his punt returns, was steady as a 14game starter at corner. Nicholson, Pool and Perkins return, and while Strait and Everage will be missed, the defensive backfield is well stocked. Eric Bassey started every game at strong safety in 2002. Last season he got one start at corner and spent the rest of the season in a backup role at that position. Jowahn Poteat also has experience at corner.

80


SEASON OUTLOOK Nickel back Brandon Shelby, whose penchant for blocked kicks and sacks has made him extremely valuable, also returns. From there, a lengthy list of others hope to snag their first extensive time on the field. At corner, candidates like sophomore Jason Carter and redshirt freshman Darien Williams could emerge. At safety, the same could be said for redshirt freshman Tony Cade. Junior college transfer Chijioke Onyenegecha came in at semester and will likely be in the hunt for a starting job at cornerback.

SPECIAL TEAMS Players with starting experience at the position: Trey DiCarlo, Blake Ferguson, Antonio Perkins, Jejuan Rankins, Jacob Rice With the exception of holder Matt McCoy, anyone who handled the ball on Oklahoma's special teams last season is back. Replacements for McCoy's job will be auditioned. Otherwise, it's the same cast. For a guy who wasn't even on the team when practice convened for his freshman season (2002), K Trey DiCarlo, now a junior, has fashioned quite a career. He has made 35-of-44 field goals and 132-of-134 extra point kicks.

Last season, DiCarlo was one of three finalists for the Lou Groza Award when he set an NCAA record with 74 extra points, ranked No. 4 nationally in field goal accuracy (among kickers with at least 20 makes), No. 13 in scoring and No. 24 in field goals per game. He also boomed 46 touchbacks on kickoffs after getting just nine in the previous season. Punter Blake Ferguson also upped his numbers in 2003. He increased his average by more than two yards and had one more punt downed inside the 20 (18 total), despite the fact that he had 14 fewer attempts. Ferguson is now a senior. Perkins was all the rage last season when he set an NCAA record with four punt returns for touchdowns (he now has seven in his career). He also set two NCAA records against UCLA with three punt returns for touchdowns and 277 punt return yards. It will be interesting to see how opposing teams approach him in his senior season. Perkins also returns kickoffs and will likely be paired with Jejuan Rankins, Mark Clayton or Mark Bradley in that role. Long snapper Jacob Rice has completed his first two seasons with virtually no notice. That's because all 315 of his snaps, on either punts or placements, have been on the mark.

SOONER NOTEBOOK SEASON NO. 110

POLLING PLACE

OU CHART CLIMBERS

This is the 110th season of football at OU. The state of Oklahoma itself turns just 97 this year. That difference always reinforces the signficance of Sooner football. OU played its first football game in 1895, just a little more than six years after the first major land run was staged in the territory in 1889.

* Oklahoma has the third longest active streak in terms of consecutive weeks in the Associated Press rankings. Michigan tops the list at 93, followed by Miami at 71 and OU at 69.

Passing Yards • Career

JASON RETURNS No, it’s not a Friday The 13th sequel. Oklahoma’s Heisman-winning quarterback Jason White, listed as a senior last year, received a ruling from the NCAA that allows him another year on the college level. White is the second Heisman winner since OU's Billy Sims in 1978 to return for an additional season. BYU's Ty Detmer, who won the award in 1990 as a junior, was the other.

SO DOES LANCE When the 2003 season began, it did so with three seniors starting at linebacker for Oklahoma. Two starters return in 2004. That oddity came about as a result of a torn ACL for Lance Mitchell. The physical middle linebacker was felled in the third game of the season (Fresno State). His eventual replacement was Gayron Allen, then a junior. With Mitchell cleared for a hardship, both return for 2004. Mitchell was OU’s leading tackler in 2003 with 124.

THE SCHEDULE * Like most college teams, due to the rotation of the calendar, Oklahoma will revert to an 11-game regular season. The Sooners last played 11 regular season games in 2000. * Oklahoma's Big 12 schedule rotates in terms of its three opponents from the North division. The Sooners begin two-year stints with Kansas (home), Kansas State (away) and Nebraska (home). The three teams that rotate off are Colorado, Iowa State and Missouri.

STADIUM PROJECT IN PHASE II With Phase I, the most noticeable facet of construction at Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium completed, last summer’s efforts concentrated on Phase II. Phase II work is confined to the west side of the stadium and concentrates on fan amenities.

ATTENDANCE RECORD COULD FALL AGAIN Due to some reconfigured seating on the west side of the stadium, particularly in the Santee Lounge area (mid-level) the capacity of the facility is expected to increase. That construction was not completed at press time so the exact number was not yet known. It is possible that the attendance mark of 84,027 set last season could tumble in 2004. The listed seating capacity last season was 81,207, although that number was exceeded in each of the seven home games.

LIVE SMALL, DREAM BIG Oklahoma has produced four Heisman Trophy winners, including Jason White in 2003. White hails from Tuttle, Okla., population 4,294. That small town theme is in keeping with OU’s Heisman history. The late Billy Vessels, the 1952 winner, was from Cleveland, Okla., pop. 3,067. Steve Owens, the 1969 winner, is from Miami, Okla., pop., 13,704, while 1978 winner, Billy Sims, is from Hooks, Texas, pop., 2,973. The combined populations of the communities that produced OU’s four Heisman winners is 24,038.

LIGHTS, CAMERA... Jason White was one of four Division I football players chosen to do NCAA commercials over the summer. White was flown down to Houston, Texas, to shoot the commercial on campus at the Rice University on May 25. Each year, a handful of athletes are selected to appear in the spots that generally relate to the promotion of NCAA sports, sportsmanship, staying in school and other community service angles. White will be featured in two different commericials. The first commercial, focuses on issues including character and team work. The second spot focused on determination and hard work and showed White running the steps at Rice’s football stadium. The Sooner quarterback recorded a voice over in which he spoke about never giving up, regardless of the obstacle. Braylon Edwards (Michigan), Brock Berlin (Miami) and Marcus Spears (LSU) also shot commericials.

Oklahoma had an unprecedented seven natonal award winners last season (the previous best by a school in one year was five) and will push for more in 2004. Here are players who were listed prominently for some of those awards last season:

WATCH OUT Some preaseason watch lists for college football’s top awards had been released at press time. Here are the Oklahoma players that were listed ... OT Jammal Brown - Lombardi Award C Vince Carter - Rimington & Lombardi Awards DE Dan Cody - Hendricks Award Dusty Dvoracek - Lombardi Award DE Jonathan Jackson - Hendricks Award

THE PICTURE OF CONSISTENCY Antonio Perkins has been OU’s punt returner for the last two seasons. In 2002, he set the school record for punt return yards in a season with 643. In 2003, he also claimed the No. 2 spot on that list with 642. Perkins has three of the nine longest punt returns in school history. Perkins set the school record for career punt return yards in just his 25th game in that role. He has accumulated 1,285 yards entering his senior season.

ABOUT THE DEFENSE * Oklahoma has forced at least one turnover in 59 of the last 66 games (Stoops’ tenure) and has at least one interception in 46 of the last 54 contests. Perhaps even more impressive is the fact that OU has had multiple interceptions in 15 of the last 26 games. * Sooner opponents have completed 50% of their passes just 28 times in the last 66 games. * OU foes have scored 14 or more points just 26 times in the last 66 games. * Under Stoops, the Sooners have six shutouts. Opponents failed to score more than seven points in 20 of the 66 games. * Oklahoma has had at least 20 interceptions in four straight years (a total of 88 during that span). Never before had OU strung together three seasons with 20 picks.

* There have been 20 special teams TDs, including 13 in the last 35 regular season games. Those 13 came via five different kinds of plays -- eight punt returns, two faked field goals, a blocked punt, a kickoff return and a faked punt. The special teams also own one safety. * OU has returned five kickoffs and 11 punts for touchdowns. * The Sooners have blocked 17 kicks. * OU recovered its only onside kick attempt last season (at Colorado).

BOB STOOPS HEAD COACH BOB STOOPS History is one tough customer at Oklahoma. The tradition, so rich and so long-standing, is as daunting as it is impressive. To be among the best at Oklahoma is to be among the best in college football. Such dramatics are lost on Bob Stoops. The Sooner head coach befriended the wouldbe albatross of OU’s successful past from his first day on campus and remains steadfastly focused on tomorrow and the championship it holds. It falls then to long-time observers and experts of the game to define Stoops’ impact. Rarely have the pundits had it so easy. Under Stoops, Oklahoma has won 55 games, spent 55 consecutive weeks in the national rankings, played in five bowl games, three of the BCS variety, and captured two Big 12 crowns. On a playing field leveled by scholarship limits and parity, this era stares down the Oklahoma standard and does not blink. The achievement is so brilliant that it dulls the memory of what Stoops inherited. When he arrived in Norman, the proud Sooner program was fives years removed from a winning record; four from bowl play. Those atypical days of angst are so forgotten now that they might as well be categorized with the land rush and dust bowl. Stoops has been characterized as a grounded family man, brilliant big-game coach, relentless recruiter, disciplined leader and a person with uncommon perspective. His success emanates from a disciplined style true to his roots in the Steel Valley of Ohio, but he is far from inflexible. The principles to which he holds are the tried and true axioms of the sport … mixed with cutting edge strategy and an appreciation for the calculated risk.

During his time, OU has produced record–setting passers and receivers, a 1,000-yard rusher, suffocating defense and special teams units that rank among the most dynamic in the land. The Sooners have been nothing if not versatile. The son of a coach, Stoops was a four-year starter at Iowa. He began his coaching career in 1983 as a volunteer in the Hawkeye program under Hayden Fry. He worked through the ranks until he became co-defensive coordinator at Kansas State (1991-95). With the Wildcats, he played a key role in their impressive turnaround. During his final four seasons there, K-State was 35-12 with three bowl appearances. Eventually, he left for Florida and a three-year stint as Steve Spurrier’s defensive coordinator. In 1996, he was part of a national championship team. It was with the Gators that the spotlight found Stoops and made him one of the hottest names in the profession. His hiring at Oklahoma was one for the ages.

2003 SEASON OKLAHOMA 37, NORTH TEXAS 3 GAME 1 | AUGUST 30, 2003 | GAYLORD FAMILY - OKLAHOMA MEMORIAL STADIUM (83,073) | NORMAN, OKLA.

GAME SUMMARY NORMAN, Okla. — Jason White, in his debut after a second reconstructive knee surgery, fired three touchdown passes and Oklahoma’s defense was dominant in a 37-3 win over two-time defending Sun Belt Conference champion North Texas. The first of three Trey DiCarlo field goals gave the Sooners a lead on their initial possession. Scoring strikes from White to Jejuan Rankins (three yards) and Brandon Jones (64 yards) quickly made the lead comfortable. North Texas had no success against the OU defense. The Sooners recovered a fumble, intercepted a pass and logged three sacks. Derrick Strait had seven tackles, a forced fumble and a pass deflection to spearhead the effort. Oklahoma built a 30-0 lead before a late North Texas drive yielded a field goal. Reserve quarterback Paul Thompson then led a final scoring drive for OU.

GAME NOTES • The game was the first in the enlarged Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. The crowd of 83,073 marked the first of more than 80,000 to witness a sporting event in the state of Oklahoma. The Sooners wore retro uniforms that were representative of the uniforms worn by OU teams from 19461965. The last time OU wore similar uniforms was Dec. 4, 1965. The coaching staff donned sideline wear that emulated that worn by Barry Switzer’s coaching staffs in the 1970s and 1980s. • OU moved to 83-20-6 in season openers, including a 50-8-5 record in Norman. OU head coach Bob Stoops is 5-0 in home openers. • Jejuan Rankins' three-yard touchdown reception from Jason White in the first quarter was the first reception and touchdown of his career. The last player to score a touchdown on his first career pass reception was Artie Guess in 1987 against Tulsa on a 21-yard pass. • For the third consecutive time OU scored 37 points against North Texas: 379 in 1998; 37-10 in 2001 and 37-3 in ‘03.

2003 SEASON OKLAHOMA 20, ALABAMA 13 GAME 2 | SEPTEMBER 6, 2003 | BRYANT-DENNY STADIUM (83,818) | TUSCALOOSA, ALA.

GAME SUMMARY

Score by Quarters

TUSCALOOSA, Ala.. -- A faked punt and a long scoring throw on the ensuing play spurred the Sooners to a 20-13 victory over Alabama. It was the first game in Tuscaloosa for Crimson Tide coach Mike Shula.

Oklahoma Alabama

Late in the third quarter and with OU facing a fourth-and-10 from its own 30, Bob Stoops showed his nerves of steel by calling for the fake. Punter Blake Ferguson hit Michael Thompson on a pass play that went for 22 yards. On the next snap, Jason White fired a 47-yard bomb to Brandon Jones for the Sooners’ final touchdown.

First Quarter 12:22 OU - DiCarlo 34 yd field goal 7:10 OU - DiCarlo 40 yd field goal

The Oklahoma lead stood at 20-10 and, despite a sprited comeback attempt by the Crimson Tide, the Sooners had the game in hand. OU’s defense logged six sacks and two interceptions to complement the bigplay offense and strong kicking of Ferguson and Trey DiCarlo.

GAME NOTES • The Sooners equalled the Stoops era high for sacks with six and allowed none. • Oklahoma defeated Alabama for a second straight year and improved its alltime record against the Southeastern Conference to 19-8-3. • OU cornerback Antonio Perkins registered his eighth career interception on the first offensive snap of the game. • Trey DiCarlo made two of three field goal attempts. The miss was the only he registered during the regular season. • Oklahoma entered the game ranked No. 1. Alabama was unranked.
