    SPECIAL GUEST: Sooners 5-star QB commit Jackson Arnold talks about his season, rumors surrounding his recruitment, his excitement about getting to Norman soon, 2023 class update/where things stand with certain OU targets Topics Timestamps: 00:00 - Podcast Intro as 2023 5-star QB Jackson Arnold joins Brandon Drumm 03:00 - Arnold talks about his BIG-TIME game against Allen Eagles on Espn 2, on Thursday night, and how his team played as a whole in the 49-7 win. Arnold had more TDs than incompletions that night. He had over 400+ yards of total offense and five TDs. 09:45 - Arnold talks about his Guyer Wildcats and their chances to make their third Division II State Title game in the last four years. Also, Arnold breaks down how they divide the districts into divisions come playoff time. 15:00 - How playing against five-star DB Peyton Bowen, four-star DB Ryan Yaites, and 2024 four-star DB Eli Bowen in spring and fall camp have helped Arnold and his Guyer offense. 23:00 - Arnold talks about when he started playing QB and why he started playing that position. He also talked about how he played on the same little league team as 2023 four-star DL Kayden McDonald when they were seven to ten years old. All before moving to Texas and playing there ever since. Arnold also talks about how he got to know Sooners CB coach/Co-DC Jay Valai when he was playing little league ball. Crazy story when you think about how things played out today. 30:00 - Arnold on his longtime relationship with 2023 four-star DL Kayden McDonald and how the visit went with both in Norman at Kansas game. His thoughts on OU chances to land McDonald. 34:00 - How he takes being the leader and face of the Sooners 2023 class, and how he likes dealing with every recruit and pushing for all the targets to join him in Norman. Can it get to be difficult? Does he embrace it knowing he is the five-star QB and potential face of the program, too, in the future? 36:30 - His relationship with Sooners QB Dillon Gabriel and what his thoughts are on Gabriel returning for 2023 season (assuming that happens), so would that play into things for him or does Arnold think that his a good thing to learn behind Gabriel before he competes for the starting job? 40:00 - Arnold addresses the Notre Dame rumors. He addresses the UGA rumors and talks about how locked in he is with Oklahoma. Arnold also talks about how his Guyer offense is very, very similar to what Jeff Lebby and the Sooners do on offense, with his head coach being GA's with Lebby at Baylor back in the day. The two are very good friends and former roommates, as well. 46:00 - Arnold on what made him choose OU and what else he was looking for in schools. Interesting enough, Arnold says NIL was at the bottom, along with location. His answers were very intriguing and something any fan would be interested to hear. Arnold said, "I can't think of a better fit for me in college football (than OU)." 54:14 - Arnold on his thoughts on the Sooners' 2023 class and what he thinks of its makeup so far. And talks about four-star LB/ATH Tausili Akana. Arnold talks about other players he would like to have in the class. Brought up five-star DL David Hicks and five-star OL Samson Okunlola and more. Also, discusses closeness of the class and his friendship with defensive leader, four-star DL Derrick Leblanc. 1:01:00 - Arnold on his Guyer teammates five-star DB Peyton Bowen, four-star Ryan Yaites and 2024 four-star DB Eli Bowen and his thoughts on them and the Sooners. Also, what do they talk about since they are with each other every day and such close friends? How much of it is recruiting or smack talk about each others schools? 1:06:00 - If Arnold hadn't picked the Sooners, where would he have picked or committed? A certain fan base isn't feeling too lucky after hearing Arnold's answer. He adds there is no way he plays anywhere else than OU (if you see video of interview, you will see a ton of OU stuff in background and more). 1:11:32 - Podcast ends To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

    Post-Game Podcast: Sooners beat 19th-ranked Jayhawks after Dillon Gabriel's return| Can the defense get back to early season success?| Offense was DOMINANT| Big recruiting visit weekend| Could OU lose a commit soon?  00:00 - Podcast intro 02:00 - Sooners QB Dillon Gabriel is BACK and he made his presence KNOWN with a HUGE day after missing the last 1.5 games! Brandon and Parker talk about how his return might prove he is the most valuable player in college football TO HIS TEAM! His return helped OU put 701-yards on a good defense and the 19th-ranked team in the nation. 10:00 - The defense showed improvement but has so, so much still left to improve upon. Still, big plays were made by CJ Coldon, Dashaun White, and a few others today. How much does getting DG back help the Sooners' defense? We know DG is an offensive guy, but his presence means so much to both sides of the ball. Also, the duo talks about how to take small victories in things after the last three weeks' performances on defense and names young players like Robert Spears-Jennings and R Mason Thomas making a case to be bigger roles. 17:30 - Sooners' offensive line has been good and physical in the OU run game, and Eric Gray and Jovantae Barnes have had some big-time success because of Andrew Raym, Anton Harrison, Wanya Morris, Chris Murray, and McKade Mettauer have been really good on the line of scrimmage. Texas knew all OU could do was run the ball, and still, in the wildcat, the Sooners were moving the ball on Texas some due to OL's physicality. With Gabriel back, it helped even more with the threat of the pass and the fact OU's offensive line has started to "mesh," according to Anton Harrison. Talk a bit about what next year's OL could look like, too. 31:00 - Defensive line has to continue to improve and get WAY better. R Mason Thomas was flashing and causing some problems for KU QB Jason Bean, but there was a lack of QB contain at times and no pass rush from others on the DL to give Bean all day at times. Can't have that and be successful on defense. Others that played well at times were Jalen Redmond, Marcus Stripling, and a few others. 35:00 - How did Brandon and Parker feel the linebackers and defensive backs play? Who and where could there be an improvement? Key Lawrence play adequate? Shuffling of personnel help some? No pass rush hinders the DB's and Brandon and Parker discuss that. 43:00 - Players and Brent Venables talked about resting the players more this past week. How much did that help both physically and mentally on the field today and improve things in the end? They talk about BV quotes on that from post-game presser and dive into how that balance of resting and preparing can co-exist! 49:00 - Brandon and Parker give grades to all positions and overall team grades after the Sooners' 52-42 win over 19th-ranked Kansas Jayhawks. 1:00:00 - Big recruiting weekend with official visitors like four-star EDGE/DE Tausili Akana, four-star DL Kayden McDonald, and four-star DL commit Derrick Leblanc. Also, unofficial visitors like five-star QB commit Jackson Arnold with four-star LSU DB commit Ryan Yaites on campus Saturday. Also, they touch on 2023 four-star DE commit Colton Vasek visiting Texas. 1:14:40 - Podcast ends To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

Things like a big visit weekend with four-star DL commit Derrick Leblanc, four-star EDGE/LB Tausili Akaka, and four-star DL Kayden McDonald on their official visits. 09:00 - Sooners' commit Erik McCarty impresses Parker he talks about how good he thinks he will be and is right now. And can this 2023 be the program-changing class they are expected to be? 15:00 - Do we expect one of the visitors this week to be in the Sooners' class by NSD? If so, who? What will it take to make that happen? How big will this class be, and will the turnover be like this off-season with Oklahoma? Brandon and Parker talk about "the purge" and how BV is telling people he will help them leave if they don't want to be bought in. 30:00 - How naive were we to not see this coming after last years internal issues on the team and those same players being around still? How could we not see this coming? Brandon and Parker admit their naiveness in all of this, too. 38:00 - If the Sooners lose, can they win another game this year or will they end up 3-9? 41:00 - What young guys do we expect to play a ton this week? Jaren Kanak? Gentry Williams? R Mason Thomas? Who else? Do we expect Kobie Mckinzie or Kip Lewis to redshirt this year still?

    When will the embarrassment stop for Sooners after Texas STOMPS Oklahoma 49-0|Can it be fixed in 2022 season?| Three things that need fixed for OU to win| Recruiting fallout?| MORE Topic Timestamps: 00:00 - Podcast intro before Brandon Drumm and Parker Thune go scorched earth on the Sooners' play vs Texas and where this program is right now! 04:00 - How much worse can it get? Has Brent Venables' team quit already because Parker says it seems to be that way from the field view? No excuses, even without two main key players like Dillon Gabriel and Billy Bowman out. The program had so many bad "first times" in Texas's beating of Oklahoma. 09:00 - Talent (excluding backup QB, as we have seen with Davis Beville) is there, but is this a personnel problem? Is the Sooners' staff not playing the right guys in the right spots? Can this team gain the confidence to make a run? They looked dejected at the post-game podium. What's the issue with this team's football IQ? Examples of ineptness are talked about. 15:50 - Offense... W.T.F? WildWillie (Brayden Willis) and GrayCat (Eric Gray) worked so well between the '20s (20-yard line to 20-yard line), so why get away from it when you're in the red zone? And you lost all newness after halftime to surprise Texas, so why not have a wrinkle or two that isn't a STUPID jump pass? Why go back to Davis Beville? What can OU do offensively when Gabriel comes back? Brandon and Parker discuss how they need to feature Jalil Farooq, Brayden Willis, and Marvin Mims at ALL times they aren't running Gray, Marcus Major, or Jovantae Barnes. Get them out and space, and let those guys go to work! 26:00 - Is this team worn out? Venables talks about it, and Brandon cites a well-placed source that said similar to him last week and went into detail on that. 28:30 - Brandon and Parker name three things on the offense and defense that need fixed NOW for Oklahoma to start getting back on track, if that is possible at all! Names like Jaren Kanak, Gentry Williams, Woodi Washington staying at safety, Kani Walker, CJ Coldon, four-man fronts, or being multiple IF YOU'RE GOING TO CLAIM BEING MULTIPLE! Also, finding a different backup QB like Nick Evers, General Booty? Micah Bowens? 40:00 - Are there some older guys still not buying in or giving their all for this squad? Brandon and Parker discuss. 45:00 - What is this team's identity? Do they have one? How do they get one in mid-season if they don't have one already? And how much of this is personnel on defense and the fact the players were recruited for a different type of defense? Players are talented but look nothing like the players BV had at Clemson. 51:00 - Recruiting fallout? Is there one? Brandon and Parker talk over/under on two decommits. Answer may shock some and may shock others, but they break it down. The Colton Vasek rumors discussed. 56:40 - Will there be a change in how things are done? Could OU change some things up on the defensive side? Will BV take over full control of the defense? If there is a "fall guy," who will that be? 1:06:24 - Podcast over To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

    PostGame: TCU takes Sooners to woodshed 55-24, so how does Venables and his staff fix this problem?  TimeStamps: 00:00 - The podcast starts and Brandon and Parker go off right from the get-go. 03:00 - Dillon Gabriel and Damond Harmon injury updates 05:00 - Brandon and Parker are at a loss for words when it comes to talking about what they witnessed vs TCU. 07:00 - Should OU look to a four-man front instead of a three-man front? Brandon discusses personnel with Isaiah Coe, Jalen Redmond, Kelvin Gilliam, and others playing the interior defensive line. And he asks when they start playing Jaren Kanak more. When will they start to give players like Robert Spears-Jennings a look at safety? What about the younger players in general and giving them a look to see what they can bring to the table on Saturdays? 11:00 - Injuries, injuries, injuries... 13:00 - Parker calls his shot and says this about OU performance the rest of the year (listen to hear his prediction)... How can you recruit so many four and five-star players and struggle like this? And the question is asked if the Sooners lack of intricate defense under Grinch causes the in-depth playbook of Venables' defense to be too vast for some? 18:00 - Dillon Gabriel looked to be pressing and his passes looked high and too far on multiple occasions, so did a certain sect of fans going after him (unjustly vs Kstate, according to Brandon and Parker) cause him to have some added pressure that he put upon himself. Or, did the moment put pressure on him? Either way, that was rough to watch before he was cheapshot with the targeting hit. 23:30 - TCU followed Kstate blueprint vs OU with a lot of six man lines on offense ( leaving TE in). How can OU combat that moving forward, because if they don't, it's going to be a long year. And can playing the younger guys help in multiple facets? R Mason Thomas return make a difference? Gracen Haltom? Jaren Kanak? Robert Spear-Jennings good enough yet? Something has to give and soon! 34:00 - Recruiting aftermath with the losses? Does the 2023 class feel that BV will fix things when they arrive? Before? What have we heard so far? What about five-star QB Jackson Arnold? Four-star DE Colton Vasek? Others? 41:00 - Does the residual effect of previous defensive regime's cause the defense to have some PTSD type reaction when things start to go bad? Big play given up and then say, "here we go again." And then things just continue to avalanche? 46:00 - Brandon starts to name where all of the starters were ranked coming out of high school. It's impressive, but also very concerning that OU has this much trouble with this much talent, no matter who the DC is or who is running the defense. Mike Stoops. Alex Grinch. And last two games, Brent Venables. 51:00 - Off the cuff final record predictions from Brandon and Parker. They don't feel it's set in stone, but it's plausible. 55:00 - Final thoughts from Brandon and Parker. 1:03:29 - The podcast ends To learn more about listener data and our privacy practices visit: https://www.audacyinc.com/privacy-policy Learn more about your ad choices.

One team shot themselves in the foot, and one didn't. Parker brings up KState OC Collin Klein. The former Wildcat QB beat OU in 2012.

Did the media/Brandon and Parker feel that this was a lesson learned? And what did BV put off to make us believe one way or another? And was the Nebraska game dominance bad for OU heading into this week after KSU lost to Tulane? 36:00 - Where does this team go from here? Can BV and the Sooners get Dillon Gabriel and company to finish off 10-2 or 11-1 moving forward? Parker and Brandon discuss. 44:00 - Should OU fans be worried that this loss could cause certain recruits to look at the Sooners differently? What about five-star DL David Hicks?

    Sooners' first road test of the season @ historic rival Huskers| Who is Nebraska after coaching changes? Should Oklahoma expect the unexpected with NU having nothing to lose?|What does OU need to do to win?|4-star/5-star recruiting targets updates Oklahoma was bland on offense, and head coach Brent Venables wanted to see some strain and OU's reaction last week against Kent State. BV got just that with the Sooners' offense struggling until the final minutes of the first half. Oklahoma's offense kicked it in gear, but this was the second week in a row that the Sooners' defense was dominant from start to finish. They now lead the nation in tackles for loss (23) and touchdowns given up (one) on the season. Oklahoma is also third in sacks with nine total now. So after a bad first half of offense and a really good second half vs Kent State, in a 33-3 win, what do the Sooners need to do to beat the Huskers on the road? This will be OU's first road test, and with Nebraska firing Scott Frost and hiring interim head coach Mickey Joseph, who will Nebraska be? Should the Sooners expect the unexpected? What does OU need to do on offense and defense to pull out the win? Can the Sooners keep the Husker faithful quiet the majority of the game and stem momentum? And who needs to step up for the Sooners to come out with a victory on Saturday? All that, with predictions and recruiting updates on four-star ATH Malachi Coleman, four-star DL Jordan Renaud, five-star DL David HIcks, four-star DL Kayden McDonald, and four-star LB Tausili Akana in this latest episode of the OUinsdider: Under the Visor Sooners Podcast! Topic TimeStamps: 00:00 - Podcast intro 02:00 - Quick rundown of Sooners' 33-3 victory over Kent State. What was good and what was bad in Oklahoma's second win of the season? 10:00 - Nebraska game breakdown. What does OU have to do this weekend on the road to pull off the win? What do the firing of Scott Frost and the hiring of interim HC Mickey Joseph do for the Huskers this weekend? Can the Sooners attack the Huskers' defense that has been proven early to have the propensity to give up the big play in the run game and passing game? 16:00 - Nebraska fans with renewed confidence and feel they should beat OU this weekend. Where does the confidence come from, and why are some discounting BV's defense? 24:00 - The challenge the Huskers' offense and Casey Thompson brings to OU's defense. And can the Huskers break through the single-digit losses to upset OU? 31:00 - Can the Huskers control the clock as they did in Norman last season? Will BV's defense allow that, or will they force Nebraska to be more assertive and fast-paced? 37:30 - Sooners players that need to step up on offense and defense? Players of the game on both sides were predicted by Brandon and Parker. And why they picked them. The duo predicts the final score and winner between Oklahoma and Nebraska. What were their final scores, and who did they pick to win? 45:00 - Brandon and Parker talk about where things stand with the Sooners' recruiting and top targets, a la four-star ATH Malachi Coleman, four-star DL Jordan Renaud, five-star DL David Hicks, four-star DE Colton Vasek, four-star DL Derrick Leblanc, four-star DL Kayden McDonald, and four-star LB Tausili Akana. 1:19:55 - Podcast ends 30% OFF OUinsider VIP = JUST $75 getting you ONE year of OUinsider VIP and ALL 250 VIP sites on 247Sports!

    PostGame: Sooners Jekyll/Hyde but dominate Kent State 33-3| Defense looking solid, what's offense issue?| Scott Frost firing & how that changes OU/Neb game| Q&A from VIP'ers| HUGE recruiting weekend Oklahoma started off with one of the worst first halves of football we have seen, offensively, in years for the Sooners. Oklahoma was able to salvage things behind Dillon Gabriel, Marvin Mims, Drake Stoops, Eric Gray, and Marcus Major, and on the defensive side, Oklahoma was led by Reggie Grimes, Danny Stutsman, Billy Bowman, Jalen Redmond, and Justin Broiles. After a 2-0 start, Brent Venables and Oklahoma are headed to Nebraska, where Scott Frost was fired, and WR coach Mickey Joseph was given the interim head coaching job. Will that have a huge impact on how things go from here on out for Nebraskas, and most specifically, the Sooners game this weekend? If so, how will it impact things? What do we expect from OU this week vs Nebraska? Standouts from OU/Kent State game? Q&A questions answered from OUinsider VIP members on the podcast, and Brandon and Parker dive into the HUGE recruiting weekend and where things stand with OU targets like five-star DB Peyton Bowen, four-star DB Ryan Yaites, and four-star DL Jordan Renaud (only official visitor this weekend). Topic TimeStamps: 00:00- Podcast intro 02:30 - Oklahoma's Jekyll and Hyde start, but they figured it out and dominated Kent State| Weird how getting elite WR Marvin Mims a lot of looks helps the Sooenrs' offense take off! 08:00 - Sooners' defense doing their thing under Brent Venables after two games, but the biggest test on D is coming up this week in Lincoln. 14:00 - Age of offense over in college football? Brandon and Parker show how a game like this is very similar to how OU opened up in years they had two of the more dominant teams in program history? What are the comparisons?

    Post-Game Podcast: Sooners win 45-13 over UTEP in Brent Venables' first game as head coach| The good/bad from the game on offense/defense| Standouts| Reggie Grimes huge day| Gavin Freeman play| Youngsters making their mark| MORE!  Oklahoma comes out guns blazing to jump on top of UTEP 21-0 early on in the Sooners initial game of the 2022 season. Oklahoma ended up winning 45-13 in their home opener, with Dillon Gabriel, Eric Gray, Marcus Major, Brayden Willis and Gavin Freeman all had big plays on offense on Saturday to help the Sooners roll. The side everyone wanted to see was Brent Venables' defense and they came to play. Sure tackling in open space, six sacks from the Sooners' front seven. UTEP had 51 pass attempts and completed 31 of them, but only averaged 5.8 a completion. Brandon Drumm and Parker Thune discuss the secondary and why how they covered was by design, along with the huge day from DE Reggie Grimes. He was joined by safety Billy Bowman, LB Danny Stutsman, DE Ethan Downs and freshman EDGE rusher R Mason Thomas as standouts on defense. They discuss what made them standouts, along with other young players on both sides of the ball that made their mark and more! TimeStamps 00:00 - Podcast intro 02:30 - Atmosphere/ intro and "They set the standard, we defend it," mantra by Brent Venables in the intro video before the Sooners ran out. Drumm poses the question "will they ever ask Muleshoe" to be in the video 10-20 years from now? His history is a part of OU football good or bad with Big 12 Titles. Both he and Parker concede that won't happen anytime soon and both admit they still dislike how Muleshoe handled things. Drumm admits it was a troll question, but will have people talking one way or another. 14:30 - Atmosphere was great! It was scorching hot, but the older crowd stayed and student section left with 9 min left in second quarter in a two possession game. The history has been the same for several years with that section. Drumm says they are VITAL to atmosphere in stadium and help make it LOUD. Both say they will let the next few games play out before going all-in and fully understand some fell out yesterday due to heat and hope all is okay today. Also, hope there is more passion from student section in the future. 31:00 - Offensive standouts. The good/bad. What was the first thing most noticeable according to Drumm with the offense. Something that has been an issue for the offense over the last few years and why this was a good change if it continues over the season. Parker concurs and adds his two cents on offense. 35:00 - Defense standouts. Young players making their mark. Vanilla base defense and why secondary was still good when you deep dive into stats. Reggie Grimes was a star. Billy Bowman was what we were told he was. 38:00 - The secondary was a topic of conversation on OUinsider VIP. Brandon and Parker say how things were done was scheme and if you deep dive into the stats, you'll see the Sooners secondary was pretty good yesterday. A few were coverage sacks. 47:00- Brandon and Parker name their offense/defense players of the game. 51:00 - Gavin Freeman and the cool story he has a walk-on legacy that had P5 offers elsewhere and chose to walk-on at OU. 55:30 - Youngsters that stood out and made their mark in game one of 2022 season. 1:03:00 - Recruiting talk/unofficial visitors at the Sooners game vs UTEP. 1:11:00 - Brent Venables game ball and getting emotional.

    What we are looking for in Sooners spring game| HUGE recruiting visit weekend| Muleshoe's Player Tribune writeup BS 00:00 - Intro/talk about celebrity guest 04:30 - Talk about recruiting visits this week/spring game... Derrick Leblanc is back in Norman for an unofficial visit and a weekly shoutout to his dad, who listens to every podcast, Ricardo Leblanc. 08:00 - All the top names we could remember off the top of our heads and a breakdown where the Sooners stand with those players visiting Oklahoma. 14:00 - How Oklahoma only taking unofficial visits in April changes how things could turn out come December and why that is big for the Sooners moving forward in June, July, and the season for official visits and recruiting class. 19:00 - Does the Sooners get a commitment this weekend. 23:00 - OKPreps and the depth of 2023 and 2025. Why 2024 isn't that deep yet. Also, why program guys from instate are important to add to your recruiting classes each year. 29:00 - Don't worry about April commitments, as Texas Tech and others won't finish in the top 10. Parker and Brandon say to keep the faith in BV and company on recruiting trail. They also break down why. 33:00 - Cole Adams recruitment and more. 36:30 - Bai Jobe recruitment 40:00 - On to team and spring game talk... What we are looking for in this game and more. 53:00 - Brandon with an idiotic question (and he was joking) on what OU has to do to catch the eye of national media to talk about the Sooners being a contender. Someone will do it for some team that looks good in a scrimmage, and that will be who we hear about for the next 4 months. They talk about how stupid that is... 57:00 - Player Tribune BS and Muleshoe's narcissistic nature comes to the forefront. Brandon drops some curse words, so beware if kids are around. Both Parker and Brandon are HOT over the BS that was spewed in that write-up. 1:10:00 - Break down of what's to come on OUinsider VIP, with 'know your croot Vol one with four-star OL Payton Kirkland!" A must listen. DTY is coming on a stand-alone podcast and post-game podcast after the spring game. 1:17:28 - Podcast over. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
