MEDIA INFORMATION COVERING PRACTICE

PRACTICE LOCATION

COVERING THE RED/WHITE SPRING GAME

In the event of inclement weather, workouts will be moved to the Everest Center, one block east of the stadium. If a practice is forced indoors, OU staff will determine if the sideline space at the indoor facility is sufficient to hold the public that is in attendance. If it is, the practice will remain open.

Weather permitting, most practices will be held on the rugby fields located just east of the Lloyd Noble Center.

Credentials are required for media covering the game as there is an admission charge for the public. All requests for credentials must be entered by sports editors/directors online. The online application is available by logging on to SoonerSportsMedia.com. Parking passes are not available for the spring game. The deadline for requesting spring game credentials is April 6. A link to the credentials site will be e--mailed to media that regularly cover OU football.

Most spring practices are closed. On days that the workouts are open, designated viewing areas will be marked.

Scrimmages will likely be held inside the stadium.

Stoops Picks Up Win No. 100

7 NATIONAL C HA MPI ONSHIPS

Oklahoma’s 55-14 victory at Washington on Sept. 13, represented a historic milestone of 100 victories for Sooner head coach Bob Stoops ... • Stoops became the eighth-fastest coach to 100 victories in NCAA history by reaching the milestone in 122 games, the same number it took for former OU head coach Barry Switzer to hit the mark. Another OU great, Bud Wilkinson, picked up his 100th victory in game 111. He is No. 3 on the list. • Oklahoma is the only school to produce four, 100-win coaches: Bennie Owen (122-54-165 from 1905-26), Wilkinson (145-29-4 from 1947-63), Switzer (157-29-4 from 1973-88) and Stoops. • Stoops is the second coach in NCAA history, first in the modern era, to win 100 games in his first 10 seasons. His victory total of 109 ranks No. 2 in NCAA history for 10 seasons. Penn’s George Woodruff, who finished in 1901, holds the mark at 124 wins. Switzer is third at 98. • Stoops is one of three to average of 10 victories per season with at least 10 seasons of coaching. The others were Tom Osborne (255 in 25 seasons at Nebraska) and George Woodruff (142 in 12 seasons, mostly at Penn). • Stoops’ teams are 109-24 with one national title and six league crowns in 10 seasons. In the 10 years before he arrived in Norman, the OU football fortunes had taken a rare dip. The program was 61-503 with no championships and only three bowl trips.

Marquee Games on Horizon Future schedules include at Florida State (2011), Notre Dame (2012), at Notre Dame (2013), Tennessee (2014), at Tennessee (2015), Ohio State (2016), at Ohio State (2017) and LSU in 2018 and 2019. Under Bob Stoops, Oklahoma has already played Louisville, Notre Dame, North Carolina, Alabama (twice), UCLA (twice), Oregon (twice), Washington (twice), South Florida and Miami (Fla.) in regular season contests.

About the Sooner Defense

• OU forced at least one turnover in 117 of Bob Stoops’ 133 games and has at least one interception in 87 of the last 115; multiple picks in 40 of the last 86 outings. • Oklahoma has nine shutouts under its current head coach. Opponents failed to score more than seven points 29 times and scored less than 14 in 56 games.

Weak Freak

Travis Lewis enjoyed a banner redshirt freshman season at weak side linebacker. He led the team with 144 tackles, a figure that ranked No. 4 nationally. • Lewis eclipsed Brian Bosworth’s OU record for tackles by a freshman. The Boz had 133 (12 games). Lewis also tied Bosworth’s single-game freshman tackle mark when he registered 19 against Texas.

Defense Trends Upward Against Solid Slate

Playing defense in the scoring-happy Big 12 Conference and against a tough non-league slate can be nightmarish, but Oklahoma still posted solid numbers and trended upward at the end of the season .... • In 2008, Oklahoma played nine of the top 50 offenses in the nation and nine (four of the top six) in the top 50 in scoring. Of those nine that ranked among the top 50 in scoring, only three exceeded their averages against OU. Texas scored 45 (avg. 42.38), Kansas State scored 35 (avg. 34.92) and Oklahoma State scored 41 (avg. 40.77). The other six scored a combined 84.38 under their averages or 14.1 per game. • Perhaps the most encouraging facet of the season came in the last two games, the Big 12 title game against Missouri and the BCS Championship game against Florida. The Sooners held those two teams 21 and 24 points, respectively, below their season scoring averages while forcing five turnovers (four interceptions).

Turnovers = Points

Last season, Oklahoma converted 22 of 34 takeaways into 22 touchdowns, including two that the defense returned. That conversion rate is .647. The Sooners turned a turnover into a touchdown in nine of 14 games last season. • The Sooner offense made quick work when its defensive counterparts came up with a takeaway with 20 ensuing scoring drives. The average of those drives was 3.9 plays, 33.5 yards in 1:36.

Corner Conversation

Oklahoma introduced two new starting cornerbacks last season, but it was tough to tell. Brian Jackson finished as the team’s No. 5 tackler (72) and had 10 pass deflections to go with three fumble recoveries and a pair of interceptions. Dominique Franks scored two touchdowns on returns and logged 42 tackles and 10 pass deflections, the latter of which tied with Jackson for the team lead.

OU Again Among Best in Kickoff Returns

Not Bad on Punt Returns Either At 9.9 yards per punt return, redshirt freshman Ryan Broyles had the best average by a Sooner since Antonio Perkins, one of the most prolific punt returners in NCAA history, averaged 12.1 in 2003. Broyles’ longest return was a 68-yarder for a touchdown at Kansas State.

Oklahoma will be looking to identify a new punter after Mike Knall, a two-year starter, wrapped up his eligibility last season. He was the only Sooner to have a punting attempt last season (54 attempts). Tress Way, a kicker and punter, redshirted last season and will be one of the candidates to fill the position. Another will be incoming wide receiver Cameron Kenney. At Garden City CC last season, Kenney had a 47-yard punting average. He may also get a look at place-kicker after converting 11-of-13 extra point attempts and 8-of-9 field goal opportunities, including makes from 40, 41, and 52 yards for the Broncbusters.

DeMarco Murray paced that effort with a 27.64-yard average, good for No. 10 nationally.

2008 OUTLOOK

JERMAINE GRESHAM

The Offense

Signing Day Times Two

The calendar read January, yet the moment felt so much like February that the question made perfect sense. Bob Stoops had just announced that Sam Bradford, Jermaine Gresham, Gerald McCoy and Trent Williams were bypassing the NFL Draft to remain in school when a reporter asked, “Bob, have you ever had a better signing day this?” The Oklahoma coach smiled at the irony of the question, looked at the ceiling and said, “No, I guess not.” No indeed. Rare are the days, whether they fall during February’s national signing period or not, when a coach knowingly retains the services of a Heisman Trophy winner, three All-Americans and four All-Big 12 players. But more than playing accolades, Stoops knew that the group of four also represented a pair of team captains (Bradford and McCoy) and the cornerstone on which a team can be built. Now the Sooners look toward 2009 with a good chunk of its Big 12 Championship and BCS title game team still intact. New faces will be introduced along the offensive line, at wide receiver and in the secondary, but those are manageable holes, the kind often opened by graduation. That turnover was anticipated and recruiting and playing time were allocated in such a way as to mitigate them. At all of those positions, younger players are poised to step forward. The stage is set then for Oklahoma, the only program to win back-toback Big 12 crowns, to shoot for an amazing fourth in a row while also battling for its fifth BCS Championship Game appearance in Stoops’ 11 seasons.

For the glass-half-empty folks, the talk with focus on the offensive line and wide receiver, and even the negative Nellies can be forgiven for such musings. With four starters gone from the line and two at receiver, they are positions worth watching. Still, the glass-half-full crowd will point to the likes of Bradford, Chris Brown, Ryan Broyles, Matt Clapp, Gresham, Williams and a bevy of running backs and wonder why anyone would worry. The 2008 offense was arguably the most potent in the history of college football and it would be hard to expect that standard early in the season. Still, there is a reasonable expectation that those who return can play at an even higher level and that those who will assume more prominent roles are gifted enough to put up another set of big numbers.

QUARTERBACKS

Sam Bradford returns as one of the most accurate quarterbacks ever to play the college game. He’ll spend the off-season honing his ability to read defenses while also looking to add strength and weight. Otherwise, the Sooners will focus on Bradford’s backups. Gone is Joey Halzle, who was in that role for the last two seasons, but back is Landry Jones, who redshirted last season. Jones’ attributes aren’t totally unlike those of Bradford and coaches will look to get him snaps as opportunities present themselves. The only other scholarship quarterback on the roster will be true freshman Drew Allen, who enrolled at OU in January.

RUNNING BACKS

Bringing back one 1,000-yard rusher is nice. Bringing back two is unheard of, but that is precisely the situation at Oklahoma. DeMarco Murray spent most of the season as the team’s top rusher, but was injured on the opening kickoff of the Big 12 Championship game and did not play again. He finished with 1,002 rushing yards, but was

2008 OUTLOOK 2 0 0 9 S EAS ON

eclipsed over those final two games by Chris Brown, who ended the season at 1,220.

The only other running back who played in 2008 was Justin Johnson and he will be back for his sophomore season. He’ll be joined by redshirt freshman Jermie Calhoun and true freshman Jonathan Miller. The fullback position is strong with Matt Clapp and Brody Eldridge, both of whom have been All-Big 12. Marshall Musil, a player similar in style and stature, is a true freshman with promise. Oklahoma lost a couple of fixtures in Juaquin Iglesias and Manuel Johnson, who, by catches, finished No. 2 and No. 9, respectively, in career receptions at OU. That means the Sooners will look to new faces at the outside positions. Candidates include juniors Brandon Caleb and Adron Tennell and sophomores Dejuan Miller and Jameel Owens. The latter two were part of a decorated receiver recruiting class in 2008.

Newcomers at receiver include junior college transfer Cameron Kenney and high school product Jaz Reynolds. The tight end position is in capable hands with Jermaine Gresham, the pre-season favorite for the Mackey Award, Brody Eldridge, junior Erik Mensik and sophomores Trent Ratterree and James Hanna. Incoming freshman Gabe Ikard joins the team in the fall.

The cornerstone is tackle Trent Williams. An All-Big 12 player at right tackle last season, he will move to the left side for the 2009 season. He was considered by some the top performer on last year’s offensive line. Look for Donald Stephenson also to compete at that position. At Williams’ vacated tackle spot, Cory Brandon and LSU transfer Jarvis Jones will be among those hoping to land the starting job. At left guard, OU is looking to replace two-time All-American Duke Robinson. Brian Simmons, who made a start at left guard last season, is one candidate while Colorado State transfer Brian Lepak is another. The coaches hold Simmons in very high regard and view him as a returning starter in some ways due to his immense amount of playing time. The right guard spot could wind up in good hands, literally. Stephen Good played sparingly last season as a true freshman and has been projected as a bright prospect since the day he signed. Alex Williams is another who figures to make a push. The center position presents another opportunity. The Sooners are faced with the prospect of replacing four-year starter Jon Cooper. There is no way the team can match that kind of experience, but sophomore Jason Hannan and redshirt freshman Ben Habern are bright prospects. Oklahoma signed a pair of junior college recruits in the February signing period and both have the potential to get on the field this season. Jeff Vinson is a tackle while Tavaris Jeffries is a guard. From the high school ranks, OU added Josh Aladenoye and Tyler Evans. Their roles will be determined once they are on campus.

UNIVERSITY

In the slot, elusive Ryan Broyles returns. It is not out of the question that Broyles could move to the outside. The coaching staff will experiment with running back Mossis Madu in the slot this spring. The outcome of that work could determine what kind of flexibility exists.

With four starters, all of whom were invited to the NFL Combine, gone, there will be an overhaul across Oklahoma’s offensive line.

SEA SON REVIEW

RECEIVERS

THE SOONERS

The return of those two alone would be enough to keep most coaching staffs happy, but Oklahoma also returns its No. 3 rusher from a year ago in Mossis Madu, who piled up 475 yards and six touchdowns.

COACHING STAFF

TRENT WILLIAMS

There is no disputing the quality and experience that the Sooners lost from their offensive line. Those players were part of two, and in some cases, three Big 12 Championships. The mitigating factor is the quality of what remains to step forward. The coaching staff likes the current cast and the opportunity for another bumper season.

FRANK ALEXANDER

The Defense

With the introduction of several new starters and injuries to key players, it would be safe to acknowledge that 2008 had its share of growing pains on the defensive side of the ball. Likewise, it’s impossible to deny the improvement. By the time the season ended, the unit had rounded into one of team’s strengths, so much so that the defense is one of the reasons Oklahoma is again forecasted as a top five team for the 2009 campaign. Replacements must be found for departed safeties Nic Harris and Lendy Holmes, but otherwise the group returns largely intact. The headliners include All-American tackle Gerald McCoy, 2008 Big 12 Preseason Defensive Player of the Year Auston English and record-setting linebacker Travis Lewis, who broke Brian Bosworth’s OU freshman record for tackles while claiming a team-high four interceptions. Oklahoma’s defense is fast and opportunistic. It’s also much deeper than it was at this time last season.

DEFENSIVE LINE

An injury to English wound up a blessing in disguise when it forced Oklahoma to get Frank Alexander to the field quicker and more frequently than had been anticipated. Alexander was more than up to the task and now returns for his sophomore season pushing to maintain a starting job. English is back too along with two-year starter Jeremy Beal to make this a well-stocked position in both experience and talent. Others to watch are David King and R.J. Washington, who redshirted last season. The signing class also was replete with ends including Jarrett Brown, Justin Chaisson and Terry Franklin. There is an expectation that Oklahoma will be capable of exerting considerable pressure off the edge. Of course, the same may be true

2009 OKLAHOMA SPRING FOOTBALL GUIDE

up the middle with a talented corps of defensive tackles. The ring leader is All-American McCoy, who will be a leading contender for both the Lombardi Award and the Outland Trophy. His running mate last season, Adrian Taylor, also returns. From there, the tackle positions are less certain. Cory Bennett graduated and DeMarcus Granger had back surgery, so half of the four-man rotation is either gone or somewhat questionable. Cordero Moore got snaps at tackle last season and he returns along with redshirt freshmen Stacy McGee and Casey Walker. The incoming freshman class includes an outstanding prospect in Jemarkus McFarland. Oklahoma has been rock solid at the defensive tackle position for some time and there is no indication of anything less in ‘09. The same can really be said for the entire defensive front.

LINEBACKERS

Injuries forced OU to go deep into a thin linebacker corps last season. The return of seven players along, with a stellar signing class, helps to address the situation. The Sooners will still feature young depth and will be looking to sign another strong class when much of this group departs after the ‘09 season. Still, the immediate prospects are much improved. Ryan Reynolds and Austin Box are both recovering from injuries, but figure to be full-go by the time August workouts commence. Reynolds and senior Mike Balogun are likely to hold down the middle, while Box is a probable on either the strong or weak side. On the strong side, Keenan Clayton is the returning starter. The former safety proved a valuable commodity as he could work in a nickel role in passing situations. He’ll be pushed by J.R. Bryant. On the weak side, All-America candidate Lewis is back after an outstanding freshman season.

Others to watch include junior Brandon Crow and freshmen Daniel Franklin, Jaydan Bird, Gus Jones, Ronnell Lewis and Tom Wort.

DEFENSIVE BACKS

Dominique Franks returns at field corner with Brian Jackson working the boundary. Players like Jonathan Nelson and Lamar Harris will look to challenge. Both safeties, Nic Harris and Lendy Holmes, exhausted their eligibility last season so the Sooners will have new faces on the back end.

Proctor saw duty with special teams last season while the rangy Ibiloye redshirted. Others at safety include Desmond Jackson and Emmanuel Jones. The class of incoming defensive backs is strong enough that several of those players may find their way onto the field. The list includes safeties Kevin Brent and Jevon Harris and corners Gabe Lynn, Marcus Trice and Demontre Hurst, the latter of which may also work at safety.

Another who could enter the fray is Cameron Kenney, the junior college transfer wide receiver. He also is likely to be considered at punter.

PUNTER

Mike Knall wrapped up his second full year as the team’s punter last season so the job is open. Way and Kenney will be among those trying to secure this spot.

RETURNERS

With the end of Juaquin Iglesias’ career so ends the exploits of one of the school’s great returners. He finished with more kickoff return yards than anyone in OU history. Still, there are a number of very qualified returners. DeMarco Murray has proved dynamic in the role and Chris Brown has been used some too. It’s safe to assume that other candidates will be reviewed as well, and if history serves as a guide, Oklahoma will have a fast and elusive tandem doing the work. At punt returner, Ryan Broyles and Dominique Franks, who combined for 30 of the Sooners’ 32 punt returns last season are back. Broyles will likely get the bulk of the assignment.

DEEP SNAPPER

Three players handled the duties last year and all three are back. Derek Shaw is the most experienced, but Ben Hampton, who has been used primarily on placements, and James Winchester also have experience.

The Special Teams

For the most part, the special teams will have a familiar look with a number of returning players counted among the ranks. That does not mean, however, that there will not be substantial competition for playing time.

HOLDER

UNIVERSITY

The physical maturity and overall skill of the newcomers lend themselves to a quick adjustment period.

Jimmy Stevens handled the placements last season with Matthew Moreland taking care of the kickoff chores. Both return, but will be pushed by redshirt freshman Tress Way.

SEA SON REVIEW

Quinton Carter played extensively and is a likely candidate at one of the spots with Sam Proctor and Joseph Ibiloye also hoping to compete.

KICKER

THE SOONERS

Both OU corners were new to full-time starting roles in 2008, but they performed remarkably well and set up the Sooner defense to be strong on the outside in ‘09.

COACHING STAFF

TRAVIS LEWIS

Carter Whitson returns after filling the role admirably last season. The wide receiver was sure-handed and remains athletic enough to provide options.

HEAD COACH

BOB STOOPS HEAD COACH | 11TH SEASON | 109-24 (.820) RECORD AT OKLAHOMA

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 would-be 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.

That was true again in 2008. Stoops became the first coach in Big 12 history to capture three straight conference titles (after last year becoming the first to win two in a row) and was one of several teams, in a year of parity, to contend for the national title. It was the highest scoring team in the modern era of college football with more than 700 points and, despite the full or part-time loss of key starters on the defensive unit, still managed to rank among the top three in nearly every Big 12 category on that side of the ball. That potent offense yielded Stoops’ fifth Heisman Trophy finalist and second winner, quarterback Sam Bradford. Also during the ‘08 campaign, Stoops reached 100 wins for his career, and did so faster than any coach since before 1905. In 10 seasons under Stoops, OU has won 109 games; the 2000 national championship; spent 140 weeks in the national rankings; played in 10 bowl games, seven of the BCS variety; taken part in four national championship games and captured six 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 brilliance dulls the memory of what Stoops inherited. When he arrived in Norman, the proud Sooner program was five years removed from a winning record, four from a postseason appearance. Those atypical days of angst are so forgotten now that they might as well be mentioned with the Land Rush and Dust Bowl. Stoops has been characterized as a grounded family man, big-game coach, relentless recruiter, strong 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, seven 1,000-yard rushers, 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, working through the ranks until he became co-defensive coordinator at Kansas State (1991-95). There he played a key role in one of the most impressive turnarounds in college football history while serving on Bill Snyder’s staff. 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.

Coaching Accomplishments

• Stoops is 109-24 overall, 72-14 vs. the Big 12, 39-10 vs. the Big 12 South, 31-4 vs. the Big 12 North, 6-1 in the Big 12 title game, 37-10 vs. non-conference opponents, 60-2 at home, 31-11 on the road, 16-11 on neutral fields, 33-12 vs. ranked opponents, 4-6 in bowls, 3-5 in January bowls and 2-5 in BCS games. • OU has set or tied more than 180 school records under Stoops, not including bowl bests and marks specific to a particular position (i.e., receptions by a running back). Among those marks under Stoops are passing for a game, season and career; receiving for a game, season and career; and rushing for a season.

NORMAN, Okla. -- Oklahoma scored touchdowns on its first seven possessions and overhwhelmed Tennessee-Chattanooga in the season opener for both teams, 57-2. It was 50-0 at halftime when lightning forced a one-hour, 12-minute delay. Chris Brown ran for three touchdowns, but the Sooners also threw for three as Quentin Chaney, Manuel Johnson and Juaquin Iglesias all caught passes for TDs. DeMarco Murray, who also scored once, led all rushers with 15 tries for 124 yards. QB Sam Bradford played sparingly, but still completed 17-of-22 passes for 183 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. The visiting Mocs mustered just 36 yards of total offense and two first downs against an OU defense that registered five sacks. Oklahoma would have posted a shutout if not for an errant punt snap that resulted in a safety. DE Auston English registered four tackles for loss and two and one-half sacks for OU, while CB Dominque Franks knocked down three passes.

NORMAN, Okla. -- Sam Bradford established career highs for completions, attempts and yards, while tying his top performance for touchdown passes, as Oklahoma routed Cincinnati, 52-26. The OU quarterback completed 29-of-38 passes for 395 yards and five touchdowns. Among his favorite targets was redshirt freshman Ryan Broyles, who enjoyed the best debut game ever for a Sooner receiver when he caught seven passes for 141 yards. One of those resulted Oklahoma’s first touchdown. OU jumped to a 14-0 lead and was ahead all day. The offense moved at will, running up 30 first downs and 197 rushing yards. The defense played better than the score indicated. Cincinnati’s offense scored only two touchdowns before it tacked on another on the game’s final play. The other Bearcat score came on a kickoff return.

NORMAN, Okla. -- Sam Bradford threw for a career-high 411 yards and Manuel Johnson set an Oklahoma record with 206 receiving yards as the No. 2-ranked Sooners sprinted past TCU, 35-10. The Horned Frogs loaded up against the run, and limited OU to just 25 yards on 36 attempts, but opened themselves up to a flurry of big passing plays. After finding Juaquin Iglesias for a 24-yard touchdown on OU’s first possession, Bradford threw three straight TDs to Johnson on plays covering 76, 55 and 63 yards. Johnson became just the second player in school history to record three scoring plays of 55+ yards in one game (tying Antonio Perkins). Oklahoma shredded the nation’s No. 1-ranked defense for 436 total yards and Bradford threw at least four touchdown passes in a third consecutive game. Meanwhile, the Sooner defense stymied a TCU team that was averaging 43.0 points per game by forcing four turnovers, two fumbles and two interceptions. The Horned Frogs did not get a touchdown until the fourth quarter. The victory extended Oklahoma’s home winning streak to 21 games, a figure that tied the second longest home streak in school history.

SEATTLE, Wash. -- Playing before a national television audience on ESPN, Oklahoma overwhelmed Washington in every facet to claim a 55-14 victory. Just one week earlier, the Huskies had dropped a heart-breaking 28-27 verdict to No. 15 BYU. The Sooners established a physical running game early to set up the pinpoint passing of quarterback Sam Bradford. Both Chris Brown (107) and DeMarco Murray (100) hit the 100-yard mark on the ground, while Bradford completed 18-of-21 passes for 304 yards with five touchdowns and no interceptions. The Oklahoma defense was equally dominant, shutting out the Huskies until the 5:37 mark of the third period. Prior to that play, OU had amassed a 41-0 lead. CB Brian Jackson led the defensive unit with two fumble recoveries, one fumble forced and five tackles. At the end of the day, Oklahoma had 591 total yards with 274 on the ground and 317 through the air. UW finished wtih 336 yards, 95 in the fourth quarter.

WACO, Texas -- Seventy seconds into its first possession, Oklahoma was in the end zone. And so it went as the Sooners, playing for the first time during the season with the nation’s No. 1 ranking, flattened Baylor, 49-17, in the Big 12 opener for both teams. The Sooners scored on their first four possessions and their 28 first-quarter points tied for their second-highest one-quarter scoring total by OU against a Big 12 foe. So complete was the domination that the first six OU touchdowns were scored by six different players. Sam Bradford completed 23-of-31 passes for 372 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed for one score. In addition, OU rolled up 217 yards on the ground, led by DeMarco Murray, who had 96 yards and two touchdowns on 26 attempts. The Sooners held the upstart Bears 17 points and 160 total yards under their averages. SCORE BY QUARTERS 1 Oklahoma Sooners (5-0, 1-0) 28 Baylor (2-3, 0-1) 0

DALLAS -- Texas rallied from an 11-point, first-half deficit to defeat Oklahoma in the 103rd Red River Rivalry, 45-35. OU had sprinted to a 21-10 lead when Texas’ Jordan Shipley returned a kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown. Later, the Sooners lost MLB Ryan Reynolds, the Big 12’s fourth-leading tackler, to a knee injury, and the Longhorns completed their rally. The 80 combined points represented the highest scoring total in the history of the series. OU quarterback Sam Bradford threw for 387 yards and five touchdowns, the best totals by any player in series history, but it wasn’t enough as the Sooners gave up 161 yards on the ground and 277 through the air. The crowd of 92,182 in the remodeled and expanded Cotton Bowl was the largest ever to see an Oklahoma game. SCORE BY QUARTERS Texas (6-0, 2-0) Oklahoma Sooners (5-1, 1-1)

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Oklahoma set a record for most points scored in the first half of a game in rolling past Kansas State, 58-35. OU led 55-28 at halftime and the second frame was a mere formality. The Sooners ran at will piling up 273 yards on the ground, 142 from Chris Brown and 104 from DeMarco Murray. Kansas State put up 550 total yards, including 486 through the air, but was victimized by five turnovers and two sacks. Travis Lewis had two interceptions. Oklahoma raced to a 28-7 lead, but KSU rallied to tie the game at 28. From there, the Sooners reeled off 27 unanswered points to settle the issue. In that string, Ryan Broyles returned a punt 68 yards for a touchdown, the first special teams TD of the season.

NORMAN, Okla. -- Four hours and 1,165 yards after the game started, Oklahoma knocked off No. 16 Kansas, 45-31. Two OU school records fell in the process as Sam Bradford threw for 468 yards and Juaquin Iglesias caught 12 passes. But the passing game was only part of the story. OU also ran for 206 yards with Chris Brown getting 92 and Demarco Murray 83. For the first time this season, the Sooners did not score on their first drive when a partially blocked field goal missed, but they did score on the second and and never trailed. Nic Harris made his first career start at middle linebacker, vacating a strong safety position that was filled by first-time starter Quinton Carter. The latter led OU with 10 tackles. Lendy Holmes added a pair of interceptions and Auston English a pair of sacks. SCORE BY QUARTERS Kansas (5-2, 2-1) Oklahoma Sooners (6-1, 2-1)

NORMAN, Okla. -- Oklahoma sprinted to a 35-0 lead in the first quarter and never looked back in trouncing Nebraska, 62-28. Sam Bradford threw five touchdown passes for the sixth time in his career and the fourth time this season, and DeMarco Murray ran for a pair of scores while catching another and logging 201 all purpose yards. As dominant as the offense was, it was the defense that ignited the onslaught. After OU scored on its opening drive for the eighth time in nine games, CB Dominique Franks intercepted a pass on Nebraska’s first snap and ran 18 yards for a TD. It was one of three first-quarter takeaways logged by the Sooner defense. Travis Lewis had a team-high nine tackles for OU. SCORE BY QUARTERS Nebraska (5-4, 2-3) Oklahoma Sooners (8-1, 4-1)

STILLWATER, Okla. -- Oklahoma handed its in-state rival its first home loss of the season by notching a 61-41 triumph. Sam Bradford was 30-of-44 for 370 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. He also rushed four times for 16 yards and another TD. Not bad for a guy who suffered ligament damage in his left hand during OU’s third offensive series. Jermaine Gresham had nine catches for a career-high 158 yards and two TDs. OU had 187 yards on the ground, including 98 and two TDs from Chris Brown. On defense, Dominque Franks’ interception OU’s first score, and Frank Alexander got a two-point play when he returned a fumble on an OSU conversion try.

TEXAS TECH

NORMAN, Okla. -- The tight battle that was anticipated never materialized as Oklahoma disposed of Texas Tech quickly and convincingly, 65-21. The Sooners led 28-0 before the Red Raiders scored, and the contest was never in question. Sam Bradford was efficient, completing 14-of-19 passes for 306 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. His TD throws went to four different receivers and six different Sooners scored in the game. Oklahoma also rushed for 299 yards with DeMarco Murray (125) and Chris Brown (108) both gaining more than 100 yards. The OU defense rendered Tech QB Graham Harrell ineffective by sacking him four times and forcing three turnovers. SCORE BY QUARTERS Texas Tech (10-1, 6-1) Oklahoma Sooners (10-1, 6-1)

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Playing in its third national title game in six years, the No. 1-ranked Oklahoma Sooners were upset in their opponent’s backyard as the No. 2 Florida Gators prevailed, 24-14. Tied at halftime, Florida outscored Oklahoma 17-7 in the second half despite the 110-yard rushing effort by Chris Brown and the 256 yards of passing from Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford. Oklahoma tight end Jermaine Gresham led all receivers with eight catches, including two for TDs. OU was unable to overcome two costly stops inside the 10-yard line and two interceptions that were initally touched by Oklahoma receivers.

in on government experience and contacts by becoming lobbyists. In addition, he introduced legislation seeking to limit gifts and travel subsidies that government workers, including members of Congress, can receive from lobbyists. Boren also chaired the special 1992-93 Joint Committee on the Organization of Congress, which produced proposals to make Congress more efficient and responsive by streamlining congressional bureaucracy, reducing staff sizes and reforming procedures to end legislative gridlock.

Boren left the U.S. Senate in 1994 with an approval rating of 9l percent after being reelected with 83 percent of the vote in 1990, the highest percentage in the nation in a U.S. Senate contest in that election year. Boren served from 1988 to 1997 as a member of the Yale University Board of Trustees. His university experience also includes four years on the faculty of Oklahoma Baptist University, where he was chairman of the Department of Political Science and chairman of the Division of Social Sciences. In 1993, the American Association of University Professors presented Boren with the Henry Yost Award as Education Advocate of the Year.

David L. Boren

13th President, The University of Oklahoma David L. Boren, who has served Oklahoma as governor and U.S. senator, became the thirteenth president of the University of Oklahoma in November 1994. He is the first person in state history to have served in all three positions. Boren is widely respected for his academic credentials, his longtime support of education, and for his distinguished political career as a reformer of the American political system. A graduate of Yale University in 1963, Boren majored in American history, graduated in the top one percent of his class and was elected Phi Beta Kappa. He was selected as a Rhodes Scholar and earned a master’s degree in politics, philosophy and economics from Oxford University, England, in 1965. In 1968, he received a law degree from the University of Oklahoma College of Law, where he was on the Law Review, elected to the Order of the Coif, and won the Bledsoe Prize as the outstanding graduate by a vote of the faculty. As Oklahoma’s governor from 1974 through 1978, Boren promoted key educational initiatives that have had an enduring impact on Oklahoma. Established during his tenure were the Oklahoma Arts Institute, the Scholar-Leadership Enrichment Program, and the Oklahoma Physicians Manpower Training Program, which provides scholarships for medical students and medical personnel who commit to practice in underserved rural areas. Also, the first state funding for Gifted and Talented classes was provided in 1976 and, from 1976 through 1978, Oklahoma ranked first among all states in the percentage increases of funding for higher education. One of Boren’s most far-reaching projects in promoting quality education at all levels is the Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence, which he founded in 1985. The foundation recognizes outstanding public school students and teachers and helps establish private local foundations to help give academic endowment grants to local public schools. As a senator, he was the author of the National Security Education Act in 1992, which provides scholarships for study abroad and for learning additional languages, as well as legislation to restore the tax deductibility of gifts of appreciated property to universities in 1993. Boren, also a former state legislator, spent nearly three decades in elective politics before becoming the president of the University of Oklahoma. Boren was the youngest governor in the nation when he served from 1974 to 1978. Known as a reformer, Boren campaigned with a broom as his symbol. During his term, he instituted many progressive programs, including conflict-of-interest rules, campaign-financing disclosure, stronger open meeting laws for public bodies, more competitive bidding on state government contracts, and reform of the state’s prison system, including expanded education programs for first-time offenders and the largest expansion of the work-release program in state history. During his time in the U.S. Senate from 1979 to 1994, Boren served on the Senate Finance and Agriculture Committees and was the longest-serving chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. From his days as a state legislator and governor of Oklahoma to Washington, Boren carried a commitment to reform, leading numerous efforts to make government work better for American citizens. As chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, he strengthened oversight of secret government programs and reformed the procedures for Presidential notice of such programs to Congress. For more than 10 years, he led the fight for congressional campaign finance reform and for legislation discouraging administration and congressional staff from cashing

In April 2004, Boren received the Mory’s Cup from the Mory’s Association at Yale University. In making the presentation to Boren it was noted that he was the first Yale graduate in the university’s history extending over three centuries to have served as a Governor, U.S. Senator and President of a major university. Under Boren’s leadership, the University of Oklahoma has developed and emerged as a “pacesetter university in American public higher education,” with 20 major new programs initiated since his inauguration. They include establishment of the Honors College, the Charles M. Russell Center for the Study of Art of the American West, a new expository writing program for freshmen modeled on the program at Harvard, an interdisciplinary religious studies program, the Artist-in-Residence Program, the International Programs Center, and the Faculty-in-Residence Program putting faculty family apartments in student residence halls. The Retired Professors Program has been started, bringing 50 retired full professors back to the University to teach freshmen. The number of new facilities started or completed on the campus during the Boren years has matched the explosion in new programs. Since 1994, almost $1 billion in construction projects have been completed or are under way on OU’s three campuses. Among the largest of the recent projects are the $18.7 million renovation and expansion of historic Holmberg Hall, home of music and dance programs; the $67 million National Weather Center; the $19 million addition to the Michael F. Price College of Business; the $17 million Gaylord Hall for journalism and mass communication; the $27 million Stephenson Research and Technology Center; and the $83.5 million stadium project. The Health Sciences Center has a new Student Union, and the new $24 million Stanton L. Young Biomedical Research Center. Presidential Travel Scholarships, students from 111 countries on campus, more reciprocal international exchange agreements than any other university and the new International Programs Center are all making OU more international. The new Honors College helps to assure that no students need to leave Oklahoma to find an educational experience to match their potential. In 1995, Boren launched the “Reach for Excellence” fundraising campaign with a five-year goal of $200 million, which was twice as large as any fundraising drive in Oklahoma history. The drive exceeded $500 million, raising OU into the top 15 public universities in the United States in private endowment per capita. Since 1994, endowed professorships have more than quadrupled and the OU donor base has grown from 18,000 to more than 107,000 friends and alumni. During the first 10 years of Boren’s tenure over $1 billion in private gifts were donated to the university. Above all, the Boren years have been marked by an emphasis on putting students first. There is not a university president in the country that is more committed to students as his number one priority. He teaches a freshman-level course in political science each semester and is one of the few presidents of major universities to teach. Boren is married to Molly Shi Boren, a former judge and English teacher. Mrs. Boren is President Emeritus of the Oklahoma Arts Institute, which provides education programs in nine arts disciplines for high school students from across the state who are gifted in the arts. Molly Boren has two degrees from the University of Oklahoma, a master’s degree in English and a Juris Doctorate from the OU College of Law. A native of Seminole, Boren has two children, Carrie Christine Boren, an Episcopal minister, and David Daniel Boren, a member of the United States Congress from Oklahoma. The Borens are the pround grandparents of Janna Lou Boren. Devoting much of his life to public service, Boren drew from the example of his parents, the late Congressman Lyle H. Boren and Christine Boren.

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS Joe Castiglione Principle Centered Leader …Visionary ... Passionate Advocate for Student-Athletes ... Establishes Standards of Excellence & Cultural Values ... Builder of Championship Programs Each of those characteristics, standing alone, describes the 11th director of athletics in University of Oklahoma history. However, just as he has brought together different groups who are committed to one goal, you must combine those traits to get the complete picture of the person who has led the OU athletics department since 1998.

Quick to give credit to the student-athletes and coaches, the staff and the university administration, the donors and the fans, Castiglione was the one who implemented the changes that led to success. When he was hired in 1998, the search committee believed they had found a rising star in the field of intercollegiate athletics administration. Everything that has happened since his arrival at OU has cemented that reputation.

His commitment to the success of student-athletes led NCAA President Dr. Myles Brand to appoint him as chair of the Football Academic Progress Rate (APR) Working Group in June of 2008. This group, which includes presidents, chancellors, conference commissioners, faculty athletics representatives, athletics directors and head football coaches, has been given the charge to review the APR as it pertains to Division I football student-athletes. When the study is complete, the group will report back to Dr. Brand and the NCAA Board of Directors with their findings, evaluations and recommendations for improvement.

Perhaps his most unique achievement over the last 10 years for Castiglione, though, came when he received his master’s of education degree from OU in May 2007. To understand the need for education and lifelong learning, OU’s student-athletes just have to look at their AD who started and completed his master’s degree while running the department and maintaining his priorities to his family. He quickly put his experience to use as an adjunct professor in the College of Education teaching a graduate class in Marketing & Development.

A 1979 Maryland graduate, Castiglione received the University’s Distinguished Alumnus Award in April 2007. He began his career as the sports promotions director at Rice. He then worked a year as director of athletic fund-raising at Georgetown before being hired in 1981 at Missouri as director of communications and marketing. Active on the national and conference level, he is currently serving on the Gatorade Collegiate Advisory Board and the National Football Foundation and College Football Hall of Fame Board of Directors. He served two terms as chair of the Big 12 Board of Athletics Directors and is a past president of the Division I-A Athletic Directors Association and NACDA. He served a four-year term on the NCAA Championship/ Competition Cabinet and the NCAA Baseball Committee and is a past member of the NCAA Football Special Events Certification Committee. He recently agreed to serve on the NCAA Diversity Leadership Strategic Planning Committee and the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Discussion Group. In 2007, he was named to the Phi Delta Theta Foundation Board of Trustees. He is a highly requested speaker at annual conventions and continuing education institutes. A native of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Castiglione was born Oct. 8, 1957. He is married to the former Kristen Bartel, a 1990 graduate of the University of Missouri. They are the parents of two sons, Joseph Robert, Jr., born on December 20, 1996, and Jonathan Edmund, born on March 21, 2000.

THE CASTIGLIONE FAMILY

UNIVERSITY

The 11th director of athletics at the University of Oklahoma has celebrated seven national team championships and over 40 conference team titles; record numbers of graduating student-athletes and record-setting grade point averages for Sooner teams; dramatically increased donor giving; huge increases in ticket sales for all sports; major facility improvements, and development and construction of new facilities. And, as aggressive as the push to improve, expand and excel has been, he has produced a balanced budget in every year of his tenure, a first since the early 1980s.

Castiglione was hired on April 30, 1998, after serving as athletics director at Missouri. In his 17-year career with the Tigers, Castiglione, who was named director of athletics at Missouri on Dec. 15, 1993, was credited with rebuilding sports programs, hiring outstanding coaches, implementing an innovative master plan for facilities, inspiring record-setting increases in fund-raising and balancing the budget in each of his five years as athletics director.

SEASON R EVI EW

His peers have honored him for the department’s achievements as well. In October 2004, the Bobby Dodd Foundation named him Athletics Director of the Year. In 2003, he was inducted into the National Association of Collegiate Marketing Administrators Hall of Fame. In June 2001, he received the General Robert R. Neyland Athletic Director Award for lifetime achievement from the All-American Football Foundation. The National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) named him Central Region AD of the Year in 2000.

Castiglione has cultivated over 20 multi-million dollar gifts, including the largest capital gifts in history for athletics at OU, and some of the largest ever for the university as a whole. He has driven dramatic facilities projects, including a $70 million renovation and expansion of Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. Others include a $17.2 million renovation of Lloyd Noble Center; phase I of The Headington Family Tennis Complex; John Jacobs Track and Field Complex; the Everest Training Facility, one of the largest indoor practice areas in the country; and construction of the Gregg & Betsy Wadley Indoor Tennis Center. Other projects completed in his tenure have included the redesign of the Sooner football practice fields; the Port Robertson Wrestling Facility; phase I & II of the Sooner Soccer Complex, expansion of the Viersen Gymnastics Pavilion as well as additional renovations to the McCasland Field House; L. Dale Mitchell Park, the Charlie Coe Golf Learning Center, the OU Softball Complex and Barry Switzer Center. His administrative work, which has seen significant reorganization and the hiring of 12 head coaches, also included the negotiation of multi-million dollar multi-media rights contract that produces more than $8 million in annual revenue for the athletics department. His leadership was instrumental as well as the Sooners added their 21st athletics team to the OU family, women’s rowing (which will begin competition in the fall of 2008) and the design and construction of the new McClendon Boathouse on the Oklahoma River.

THE SOONERS

The accomplishments of the department and its student-athletes, coaches and staff have earned national recognition for the university and the department. Recognized as the 2007 PRISM Award winner by the School of Sports Management at the University of Massachusetts, OU was just the second Division I winner and all of the programs recognized by the selection panel were started under Castiglione’s leadership. The PRISM Award annually recognizes one Division I intercollegiate athletics department that demonstrates industry-leading excellence and innovation in sports management.

Credited with energizing OU’s fund-raising efforts, Castiglione was instrumental in the athletics department’s major campaign, Great Expectations: The Campaign For Sooner Sports. The campaign ended in November of 2003 with more than $125 million raised. The figure has grown to almost $200 million since then as the department continues its approach, and largest fund-raising effort in OU athletics history including projects that impact each of OU’s nearly 500 student-athletes. It has become a national model for intercollegiate athletics.

COACHING STAFF

Joe Castiglione has established a pattern of excellence that few in his profession can match. In an environment where every decision is made reflecting the department’s mission statement “Inspiring champions today … Preparing leaders for tomorrow,” forming the background, Castiglione is leading the department that has written one of the most successful eras in school history.
