What a strange and wild week it was!
Last week at this time, OU fans were still recovering from the whiplash of Lincoln Riley bailing for USC to begin his version of his next chapter. Now, here we all are, enthralled and captivated by the return of the man most of us wanted to help pack and move out of Norman 10 years earlier.
Yep, the Brent Venables era of OU football is officially here. I don't have a problem with the selection. I'm curious to see how well he adapts to being a head coach, but you can't argue with his success as an assistant. That being said, it is the safe, predictable hire. I'm not sure that matters, but it's something to note. I believe it's the great Sam Presti who once said “Safe Money Do Make Some.”
Anyway, I'm sure we'll have at least two or three years to complain or cheer Venables as the new head football coach at Oklahoma. For this post, I wanted to focus on all the crazy, wild and wacky stuff that made the rounds on social media over the last week. From wild rumors to funny gaffes to Dean Blevins being Dean Blevins, it was a very entertaining week of social media engagement for OU fans who were refreshing Twitter every five minutes for updated news.
Here are some of the highlights and lowlights of the week the was…
