It's finally game week after six months of trying to reboot college football after the NBA first cancelled their season.

We also hold our breath waiting for any kind of COVID outbreak that could postpone the opener. And spoiler alert, we won't handle a postponement well. Not well at all. We also talk about our impressions of Spencer Rattler, who will be leading the charge on offense and who needs to step up immediately on defense. We also breakdown the suspensions once again and let you know fact from fiction on how Ronnie Perkins, Rhamondre Stevenson and Trejan Bridges could hit the field early this season.

U40: Football can stay in the Big 12
Oklahoma Sooners Unofficial 40

It has been a crazy few days. Lincoln Riley sent his players home this weekend and we didn't know if they'd ever practice football again in 2020. The Big Ten cancelled their season. The Pac 12 cancelled their season. The Big 12 did not cancel their season. We talk about how all that happened and why it was Riley sent his players home in the first place. Lots of injuries as well. Can spring football even happen? So much has happened and we haven't even gotten to recruiting. Oklahoma high school practices are underway and we'll have you covered there as well. Where are we heading? And Josh got his dream pod today. He got to have dad talk and air grievances. It was definitely his day for a COVID therapy session. It got really dorky.

U40: If you start playing better defense at OU, you start getting paid
Oklahoma Sooners Unofficial 40

Well, last week we got pretty controversial with our takes on the Sooner Summit, or at least the potential of the Sooner Summit. This week, Josh McCuistion joins back in and gives his take on what is fact from fiction. We also breakdown the Caleb Williams factor in recruiting and whether it's fair or not that fans are placing so many expectations on him to sign top players from all over the country. The OU Board of Regents voted for raises for all football assistants this week and Alex Grinch is getting paid like one of the top defensive coordinators in the country. It appears the administration is more than happy with the way SpeedD is starting to develop under Grinch. We also get a little bit of basketball breakdown and we talk about COVID19 and it's affect on playing a season. College football and the NFL aren't in a bubble, but they need to live that bubble life if we're going to play an entire season. Just look at those idiot Marlins for proof.
