    Drew the Employee is moving to Chicago. The only moving Drew Franklin is doing will be from one bar to the next.

    No ice cream for the players after practice?

    I didn’t coaches could have supervised workouts with players in the off season?

    Anyone know if Jack Gruenschlaeger is still on the team? He was an extremely raw walk-on that would be an interesting project if he got into playing shape …would only be a R-Soph next season, too. I think it’d be a hell of an idea to put his 7-foot frame in the middle of FG/XPs to block kicks.

    This team is going to be better next year and great in 3 years. Love the program under Stoops!

    “We are never going to accept being average”. Best line ever. Keep telling them that and when they start believing then things will finally change. It starts between the ears.

    What no f*** word from coaches during practices? Teaching the players to be gentlemen and winners, not thugs as happened the past several years. And cameras by the media at practices. Basic coaching principles, Stoops is a wizard!

    I am sooooooooo hopeful that Matt hires another dude named Drew in the very near future. The confusion by so many is pure comedy.
