Trevor Knight in the 2013 Spring Football Game.
Is the University of Oklahoma working on their Knight-moves? Are they about to release a Knight-mare on college football?
Bob Stoops has said the QB competition for the starting job was real, and rumors coming out of Norman yesterday is that Trevor Knight was the leading candidate to be named starting QB for the Sooners! Both Bob Barry Jr, and Dean Blevins are saying they are hearing Redshirt Freshman, Trevor Knight is the leading QB in the race over Junior and assumed starter Blake Bell. We still have to wait on the official announcement from Coach Stoops which is expected to come this Friday.
Stats from the Spring Football Game:
Bell 14-23, 213 yds, 2 TDs
Knight 8-15, 86 yds, 1 TD
The college football season is fastly approaching. This means the excitement of Sooner Football is gaining momentum! What is in store for our favorite Crimson warriors? Well that is to be determined. Oklahoma breaks onto the scene ranked #16 according to the USA Today Coaches poll and not favored to win the conference. This has only happened a hand full of times under the command of Stoops. With that said here is an ESPN preview capsule that will give you a more in depth look key player losses and returnees for the season, along with newcomers to keep a close eye on. Don’t forget to check out the key games that will ultimately determine the bowl fate of the boys from Oklahoma. Boomer Sooner and the club cannot wait to see all of you at Stoney’s, a place you can call home away from home.

Sooner Sendoff Recap
Last month we hosted our third annual Sooner Sendoff. This event is an opportunity for incoming Sooners and parents from Colorado to meet before the new school year begins. This year we had over 20 incoming Sooners attend. Altogether there were over 70 future and current students, alumni, University representatives, friends, parents and OU officers in attendance. Thank you everyone that made this evening possible. A big thank you to Tom Lorz for hosting the event as well as the Student Service office for planning it. We enjoyed meeting the future talent of OU. Best of luck to all of you in this upcoming school year!

Many of you have signed up for the Stoney’s Club Cards where you build up discount amount that you can apply to your future tabs. Stoney’s will be phasing these out over the next couple of months and replacing them with the Fivestarcards.com which is a discount rewards card that you can use at several locations in Denver and even in other states! It’s free just for signing up.

Bench Scholarship- Available to ALL Current OU Students!!!
Do you know current students at OU that could use help with tuition next year? Have them apply for our bench scholarship. This is a fun and easy way to help ease the financial burden of college! A few years ago the OU Club of Colorado purchased a bench on campus. This year we will be offering a $2000 scholarship ($1000 from the club and $1000 matched by the university) for the student that sends us the most creative picture centered/based around the OU Club of Colorado’s donated bench (located by the dorms on Lindsay St).
We ask the pictures be in good taste and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
. In addition to the picture, applicants will also have to fill out a short application to be eligible (essay not needed) and send in an unofficial transcript from OU. The club will post the pictures to our Facebook page and the top 3 pictures with the most “likes” will be the finalists decided on by the scholarship committee. Email us with any questions or if you would like additional information.
We have been receiving many great applicants for our 2013/2014 scholarships. There is still plenty of time to submit your application to the club. We will be accepting applications until May 1st.
