In the opening take, Grant applauds OU and Tulane for making sure the game is happening this weekend. Then Lee joins to discuss the worsening OU running backs situation. What does this do to OU's offense? Will other players switch positions to RB (7:50)? It's been reported that Theo Wease is injured (16:20). Lincoln Riley told us who was going to be playing on the O-Line this Saturday. Then a day later, the depth chart came out with at least one puzzling designation (20:10). Alex Grinch maintains that 8 players will get snaps on the inside of the D-Line and also that 6 different players will get snaps on the edge. Also we take a look at the Front 7 depth chart (29:15). Grant says the most interesting part of the depth chart is the secondary. Are we ready for a potential Justin Broiles revival? Has Lee overstated the potential impact of Key Lawrence (34:30)? Billy Bowman's listed with Jeremiah Criddell starting at the Nickel spot. Grant asks "is Billy Bowman what everyone thought Bookie was going to be?" (41:05). We jump into the OU-Tulane preview. Tulane's defense was dreadful against the pass in 2020. The Green Wave have a few pretty good players returning, but the Sooners' offense should be able to do whatever it wants (44:55). Tulane's offense scored a lot of points in 2020 and 10 starters return including QB Michael Pratt. A new Offensive Coordinator makes things a bit interesting. Pass protection was a problem for Tulane, but Grant tells us that they've got a pretty good offense that should be a nice early test for OU (56:50). The guys tell you what they want to see happen this Saturday. Lee focuses mostly on Spencer Rattler, while Grant provides more details from both sides of the ball (1:09:20). Making sure we mention that Tulane QB Pratt seems to be somewhat turnover prone (1:15:20). Finally, we make our OU-Tulane predictions (1:16:55). From here, we take a look at all the games featuring Big 12 teams in Week 1. K-State v Stanford is interesting. How is Stanford so bad all of a sudden? And Grant wants to know why this game is happening in Arlington (1:22:15)? West Virginia opens up at Maryland, which could be kinda interesting. Iowa State hosts Northern Iowa, which always seems to push ISU (1:26:55). Grant really like Texas hosting Louisiana. Lee's not sure what to think of this one (1:30:30). Texas Tech takes on Houston, OSU hosts Missouri State, Baylor is at Texas State, and TCU hosts Duquesne (1:32:45). Lee asks Grant if he wants to change his mind about Nebraska? Did Bret Bielema get a raw deal at Arkansas (1:36:00)? We close the show by making picks on the 5 biggest games of the week: Penn State at Wisconsin/Alabama v Miami/Indiana at Iowa/Georgia v Clemson/LSU at UCLA (1:39:40). | Like the show on Facebook: @westofeverest | Follow Grant on Twitter: @GrantBenson25 | Follow Lee on Twitter: @LeeBensonNews9

In the opening take, Lee thinks the national media will give OU the benefit of the doubt right now -- but that's not going to last long. Then Grant joins to talk about how he's way more excited for football than he was last season. Also Lee talks about going to OU practice Tuesday morning, and is it just us or has OU's social media been putting out way more videos than usual (4:05)? It looks like some guys are much bigger and the Sooners decided to put a very large person in No. 44 this year (13:15). Bill Bedenbaugh talks Andrew Raym -- and he might be really, really good. Plus, Bedenbaugh couldn't be more pleased with where is O-Line group is through 4 days of fall camp (16:35). Grant has a story about the 2008 OU football team being a National Championship contender that makes him think of the current team (25:50). More news and notes from the offensive line. Who's playing where (34:30)? Theo Wease, Jadon Haselwood, and Austin Stogner are all healthy and good to go (36:20). Grant liked what Marvin Mims had to say on Media Day about the depth of pass catchers on OU. Grant says the ceiling of this offense is absurd (40:15). Mike Woods is expected to be an immediate impact player (43:30). Alex Grinch's Media Day press conference was kind of boring, but he did say one thing that caught our attention. Get ready for a long talk about the "unique depth" on the Sooners' D-Line (45:40). Grant predicted when OU/Texas would officially announce they were heading to the SEC. And we begin with a listener question about OU's first opponent Tulane, and when the Sooners will "change the narrative" that they're not good enough for the SEC (53:55)? Another listener wants to know if OU fans will ever chant "SEC!" (1:01:10)? Another listener wants to know if the SEC will do Divisions or "Pods" when OU and Texas join? Grant wants A&M to be in the same pod as OU and Texas, but Lee understands why they may mix those teams up (1:05:55). At the end Lee mentions a recent story about "pausing" CFP expansion and Grant gets on his soap box about games being scheduled 20 years in the future (1:15:30). | Like the show on Facebook: @westofeverest | Follow Grant on Twitter: @GrantBenson25 | Follow Lee on Twitter: @LeeBensonNews9
In the opening take, Grant explains why OU's worst offensive performance in the Lincoln Riley era is not necessarily a bad thing. Then Lee joins to admit that we need to be better on this fine podcast and we find out Grant's never left an iTunes review for anything (03:50). So do you all care about an in depth discussion of how OU can make the College Football Playoff (06:30)? So what the heck happened to OU's offense against Baylor? Lee says it was a lot more about what Baylor did than anything else. Plus a lot of talk about the offensive line (09:10). Spencer Rattler was uncomfortable a lot of the night and Baylor's defense showed him looks he hasn't seen a lot before (21:35). Grant says the Baylor game reminded him of some OU games from the early to mid 2000s (30:10). We head into "3 word reviews" which prompts us to talk about the defense for the first time. Robert Barnes played safety and everybody back there played well (33:25). Bookie's absence didn't matter against Baylor (42:15). Grant dogs on Charlie Brewer while Lee backs him up a little bit (44:50). That game was just really weird (47:30). Lee thinks the OU linebackers are just okay and DaShaun White had a rough game. Plus is a position change in David Ugwoegbu's future (49:20)? How much does Lee care about OU continuing its Big 12 Championship streak (52:50)? More on Rattler's game and how hopefully he learns that sometimes he's gotta take what the defense gives him (57:25). Lee wasn't as annoyed about Baylor's push off TD catch, while it bothered Grant immensely (59:00). Shane Beamer is off to South Carolina, plus Lee doens't know message board lingo (1:04:30). Dropped passes plagued OU a bit against Baylor. Theo Wease is gonna need to get better this offseason (1:07:45). Hopefully that game wakes up Lincoln Riley and the offense. Jeremiah Hall's explanation for Saturday's poor performance (1:14:50). Baylor marching the length of the field and scoring at the end of the game was super annoying. Plus Lee had no idea that DJ Graham played wide receiver in high school, and we talk about his interception (1:17:55). Grant says Ronnie Perkins should come back to school next year. Isaiah Thomas continues to be awesome along with the rest of the defensive line (1:24:35). We're both happy the Big 12 didn't cancel the OU-West Virginia game and Lincoln Riley's message all week has been fantastic. And of course we have to get some hits in on the Big Ten (1:29:00). Grant feels about the same about this WVU game as he did a couple weeks ago. Lee feels better about the matchup right now. Also some Austin Stogner talk (1:38:30). The line has moved since the open and gut feelings on the game (1:46:30). Grant says this 2020 season has flown by (1:49:30). Ohio State will be allowed in the Big Ten Title game now. We're starting to think a 6-0 Ohio State in the Playoff doesn't sit right (1:50:25). College football continues to choose to not make its playoff product as good as it could be(2:02:20). | Like the show on Facebook: @westofeverest | Follow Grant on Twitter: @GrantBenson25 | Follow Lee on Twitter: @LeeBensonNews9
In the opening take, Lee shares the moment against Texas Tech when he fully realized the value of Rhamondre Stevenson. Then Grant joins to talk about how the OU-Tech game seems like it happened three weeks ago and had a weird vibe, which included some questionable officiating (5:30). We open with "3 word reviews" which leads us to a lengthy discussion revolving around Rhamondre Stevenson's 2020 debut (9:00). How much does Stevenson's presence "unlock" OU's offense (17:20)? Some brief thoughts on Mikey Henderson (23:00). Let's discuss Ronnie Perkins making his season debut -- which means we also talk a lot about OU's defensive line (24:30). Hey OU's defense got a stop on 4th & 1 -- which hasn't happened a lot of late (32:20). It's not often that the Sooners force 3 takeaways in a game (34:55). What was the deal with Marvin Mims and Theo Wease dropping all those passes (37:45)? Okay let's talk about Spencer Rattler and how good he was Saturday. Didn't we tell you all that this dude was really darn good (39:00)? When are we going to see Jadon Haselwood, and what's the deal with Trejan Bridges (46:30)? Lee has no problem with Rattler saying that he and OU wanted to go embarrass Texas Tech (48:40). Could OU have kept the Peach Bowl competitive with this version of Spencer Rattler playing quarterback (51:25)? Does it seem like this is a brand new season for the Sooners (54:30)? Is it a hot take to think that Rhamondre Stevenson will be a better NFL player than Chuba Hubbard (1:01:05)? A listener wants to make it clear that the "suspended 3" probably shouldn't have broke the rules in the first place (1:04:30). A listener points out a really interesting aspect of the Tech game that we didn't realize and we wonder what the line would be if OU played OSU this week? And it wouldn't be this show if we didn't talk about K-State's Deuce Vaughn (1:07:35). Okay so do we want to see more Mikey Henderson (1:13:45)? Let's talk more about OU's defensive performance (1:14:55). Is Joe Mixon the second best running back we've seen play at OU in our life time (1:17:40)? OU's defensive backs played really well and Alex Grinch continues to play a bunch of guys (1:21:25). OU's defensive line created a lot of havoc and even more on the DBs + random OSU/Texas talk (1:24:00). Lincoln Riley kept pouring it on plus there was a funny moment Lee noticed in the first half (1:29:05). Would have been great if Theo Wease would have been a little faster (1:33:20). Please don't make us do a massive preview of this terrible OU-Kansas game (1:36:30). The Big 12 is really down this year (1:42:10). If you enjoy when we rant about the Big Ten, you'll probably like this part of the show. Why is the Big Ten hating on Nebraska so much for wanting to play football (1:44:15)? Oh hey the Pac 12 starts this weekend (1:57:40). | Like the show on Facebook: @westofeverest | Follow Grant on Twitter: @GrantBenson25 | Follow Lee on Twitter: @LeeBensonNews9
The gang is all here after surviving a bye week and we've talked all we can talk about the Texas win. It's time to move on to TCU and the expectations that have been reset coming out of the overtime win over Texas. Can Spencer Rattler keep building chemistry with receivers like Theo Wease, Marvin Mims, Austin Stogner and Drake Stoops? Can the offensive line continue to run the ball effectively even if Rhamondre Stevenson doesn't come back until Texas Tech? Can the defense build off of their emerging playmakers like Perrion Winfrey, Woodi Washington, Nik Bonitto and Isaiah Thomas? And are the Sooners expecting another huge commitment this weekend for Lincoln Riley's offense? We've talked to the players and coaches on both sides of the ball this week, all our media interviews are over. Here's all the latest to get you ready for the Sooners as they get back in action against TCU this weekend. The full rundown follows below: 00:00 - Hello and welcome back 17:25 - Suspensions and more 22:00 - Chris Murray.

The entire gang is back together to breakdown the crazy win over Texas. What did we see that OU can build on heading into the rest of the season? Is OU still the most talented team in the Big 12? Alex Grinch has a defensive line, but he's starting to find young playmakers in the secondary as well. And can anyone keep David Ugwoegbu from taking over a starting spot on defense? We also hit up recruiting as COVID cancellations are taking a toll on our scouting trips. Some Big 12 talk and plenty of opinions of Lincoln Riley's benching of Spencer Rattler as well. Bob jumps in with some hoops talk as well. The full rundown follows below: 0:00 - Hello and welcome back.

It was a crazy day as usual at the Cotton Bowl. OU appeared to have victory secured but the defense reverted to their form over the last two weeks. But did the Sooners start to find something on offense with Spencer Rattler and several receivers like Austin Stogner, Theo Wease and Drake Stoops? The defense used a lot of youngsters and it all looked really good. Lincoln Riley had a gut check as a coach. He wasn't perfect. He made some questionable decisions. But at least he hasn't been branded as a three time loser. Sam Ehlinger showed a lot of heart, but the OU defense won out in the end. The defensive line was really good again but the secondary joined in a little bit too. Eddie and Carey break it all down and we're ready for the bye week after a much needed win for Sooner fans.
It's been a whirlwind week with fall camp in full swing. But our pain is your gain as we are filled to the brim with what's going on inside OU's preseason practices. There is a different feel in the air about OU's defense now that Alex Grinch has his fingers in every aspect of the defense. Lincoln Riley hasn't named a quarterback yet, but we update on the offensive line and all the skill positions. We're also getting a feel for the starters on defense as well as what newcomers might be able to have an impact this season.

We talk about our biggest takeaways from the last few days of fall camp on both sides of the ball as well as look ahead to the season opener a bit with Florida Atlantic. No chance this is a Houston repeat right? We talk about the Sooners getting two new Rivals five stars and Theo Wease moving up to the No. 2 player in the country.

Atlanta and the Rivals 5-Star Challenge is in the mirror and the entire gang is back to breakdown what we saw in Georgia.

Frisco, Texas -- The Opening Finals Day 2 featured a lot of Oklahoma commits and targets showing out. The Opening is a marquee high school football camp and show case that features the top four- and five-star high school football players from across the country. Spencer Rattler, EJ Ndoma-Ogar, Trejan Bridges, Theo Wease, Arjei Henderson, Austin Stogner and others were showing their skills.
Theo Wease documentary executive producer Kolby Paxton joined the WOOSAH podcast to discuss his titular subject: Theo Wease. Wease is the top wide receiver recruit in the country and committed to Oklahoma. He's also famously tight-lipped about who he talks to and why. Paxton and his crew followed Wease around for three days in Wease's native Allen, Texas. During that time Wease discussed his commitment, de-commitment, re-commitment and decision to sign his national letter of intent during the Early Signing Period in December. He will enroll at the University of Oklahoma in January 2019. 2:25—Mike Holder is making Mike Stoops money, and what the hell is going on in Stillwater. 14:45—The bond between Theo Wease and family’s connection with Lincoln Riley as well as Bob Stoops 16:02—Theo Wease plans to sign during the Early Signing Period, graduate and enroll at Oklahoma in January 2019. 16:48—Theo Wease is not an attention seeking young man 17:02—How Theo uses Twitter 17:37—“He’s incredibly charismatic, but you have to get there.
