With Leather’s Watch This: Happy Halloween From The Oklahoma Sooners

Senior Writer

The No. 10 Oklahoma Sooners don’t play again until next Thursday, Nov. 7, when they visit No. 6 Baylor, so Coach Bob Stoops and his crew decided to let the players have a little fun during practice this week. Personally, I believe that not only should dressing in costumes be mandatory for every sports team that has practices during Halloween week, but any games that are actually played on Halloween should also feature every player dressed in costumes.

For example, the South Florida Bulls players should have to dress up like a team that can play offense tonight. That’s such a sick college football burn.

*closes eyes, fast forwards to Thanksgiving weekend when the Bulls defeat UCF by 70 points, cries*

NCAA Football: USF at Houston – 7 PM ET on ESPN

The Houston Cougars are quietly in first place in the American Athletic Conference at 6-1 (3-0), but unlike UCF (also 6-1, 3-0), the Cougars aren’t ranked. With a win tonight, the Cougars will set up a very important game on Nov. 9 between UCF and Houston that will leave one of these teams in the driver’s seat. So are the Cougars nervous about this? Apparently not, according to this prank that coach Tony Levine played on his team this week.

Gee, are they fired up for USF? I can’t tell. Also, it should have been a cheerleader outfit under the cloth.

I’ll make every sports fan who complains about the baseball season being too long a deal – we can cut the MLB season to 100 games if we cut the NBA season to 60. Are we all in agreement? Good. Now let’s all agree as well that no league will ever cut games and lose millions in the process. If anything, baseball will soon be 200 games and the NBA will have a game every day of the year.
