Romney heckled in airport in another show of GOP divisions

first_imgSALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Supporters of President Donald Trump have heckled Republican U.S. Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah in an airport. It illustrates divisions in the Republican Party between Trump loyalists and those ready to accept the results of the presidential election. Romney has been considered Trump’s sharpest GOP critic and is among a group of senators who called for an end to an effort to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s win. Video of the airport confrontation posted online Tuesday night came as Trump backers around the U.S. traveled to Washington, D.C., for demonstrations as Congress meets to accept the Electoral College vote.last_img

Two 4-Star Quarterbacks Make Unofficial Visits to Oklahoma State

first_imgEven with spring camp in full swing and their minds fixed on developing depth charts for this fall, Mike Gundy and Co. always have one eye on the recruiting trail. This past weekend the coaching staff hosted a group of recruits for unofficial visits. As we noted in The Reload on Monday, there were a number of big-time visitors.Among those visiting OSU’s campus were a couple of 2019 quarterback prospects, one of whom has held an offer from the Cowboys for nearly a year in Grant Gunnell. According to our interview with Gunnell from last year, Mike Yurcich extended an offer to the towering QB prior to his sophomore season. The contact was made through his head coach at St. Pius X High School in Houston, Texas.“The offensive coordinator [Mike Yurcich] came up to school and told my head coach they were offering me, then my coach told me,” Gunnell told Pistols Firing. “I was super pumped when I heard the news and I called my parents and let them know about it!”https://twitter.com/grantgunnell5/status/848936382361948160?s=09Oklahoma State was just the second school to offer the then 6-5, 203-pound play caller. But it’s a year later and a lot has changed. Not only has he already filled in to over 200 pounds heading into his junior year, he set the world on fire with his sophomore numbers in 2016.Gunnell exploded for 4,970 passing yards and 71 touchdowns to just 11 interceptions in 2016, per 247Sports. He also completed a cool 70 percent of his pass attempts. Ridiculous.No longer flying under the radar, the four-star pro style QB currently holds more FBS offers than any other player in his class, including from the likes of Texas A&M, Florida State and LSU.“Coach Yurcich (OSU) says if I were to commit there, he’d be shutting everything down. I’m the only guy he wants. That’s what every school has said,” Gunnell told Scout.Gunnell should whittle down his list of top schools soon and OSU hopes their early offer will save them a spot.The other quarterback to visit this weekend was Grant Tisdale, a 2019 recruit from Allen, Texas.The 6-foot-1, 204-pound high school sophomore isn’t as big of a name as the other visiting Grant but does have offers from Texas Tech and Mississippi State, among others. He’s more of a dual-threat prospect who can throw a pretty decent ball, too.Good ball from Allen, TX QB Grant Tisdale. His list includes #RedRaiders and #SMU. pic.twitter.com/rddsGTLtHr— Rivals Camp Series (@RivalsCamp) April 2, 2017Last month at The Opening, Tisdale put up some impressive numbers. According to Scout, who has Tisdale as a four-star prospect, he ran a 4.70 40-yard dash, completed a 4.18 shuttle and showed off a 35.6-inch vertical leap.It’s still early for Tisdale (and Gunnell for that matter). We’ll learn a lot more about both going forward but don’t be surprised if Tisdale’s star continues to rise.

Bob Stoops Retiring from University of Oklahoma After 18 Seasons, 10 Big 12 Titles

first_imgBob Stoops’ dad Ron passed away when he was 54 after suffering a heart attack while coaching a HS game & dying on way to the hospital. https://t.co/nW70WeimuF— Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) June 7, 2017The most shocking part about all of this is the timing. Stoops is calling it quits a week into June a few days after he made the in-state caravan rounds. That’s a little … bizarre. But it seems to have been motivated by the fact that Lincoln Riley is the next big thing.“It was with sadness that I learned of the decision of Coach Bob Stoops to step down as head football coach at Oklahoma,” said OU president David Boren. “Coach Stoops has made a critically important and lasting contribution to the OU football program. He has led to its restoration as one of the top programs in the nation. His success has helped provide the momentum for major new facilities like the improvements and expansion of the football stadium. Because of his unquestioned personal integrity and high standards, he is one of the most admired college football coaches in America.“His decision to step down at this time was motivated partly by his belief that he has the right successor already in place in the program, Lincoln Riley, and he wanted to pass the leadership on at a time of strength for the program. His decision is typical of his unselfishness and always putting first the best interest of the players and program.”Briefly spoke with two #Sooners on Bob Stoops retirement:”Don’t know what to say.””The campus is in shock right now.”— Nate Feken (@TheGreat_Nate) June 7, 2017 We will have more coverage throughout the day. Sources telling me Bob Stoops told the team “it was just his time to go” & that everything on the staff “will stay the same.” #Sooners @KFOR— Nate Feken (@TheGreat_Nate) June 7, 2017“I’m especially thankful for being able to coach so many talented young men over my 18 years here,” added Stoops. “It has been so rewarding to see these players come to OU and mature over a four or five-year career, and not just on the field. To play a small part in their growth is what I will always cherish the most.“None of my success would have happened without the best fans in the country. I can’t tell you how much I appreciated the 110 consecutive home sellouts. The passion of our fan base is unmatched, and their support has played a huge role in not only home games, but road games and all 18 of our bowl games, as well.“The coaching life is like a relay race and I’m thankful for my turn and am confident as I pass the baton. Carol and I intend on staying in Norman — it is our home. I will be available to Coach Riley and the athletic department in any manner. Thank you all for a lifetime of memories we shared together of 10 conference championships, the 2000 national championship, strong relationships with players and coaches, and the great Oklahoma football fans. Boomer!”Stoops finishes with a 190–48 record including 121-29 in the Big 12 and 14-4 against Oklahoma State. His only national championship came during the 2000 season in a win over Florida State in the Orange Bowl.

Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops will inform his team on Wednesday that he will retire after 18 seasons at the helm in Norman.Stoops will not coach the 2017 season.The retirement is not thought to be related to his health or anything regarding NCAA penalties for OU from the NCAA. Stoops, at age 56, just wants out after nearly two decades and two hands’ worth of Big 12 rings.“After 18 years at the University of Oklahoma, I’ve decided to step down as the head football coach,” Stoops said in a statement. “I understand there has been some speculation about my health. My health was not the deciding factor in this decision and I’ve had no incidents that would prevent me from coaching. I feel the timing is perfect to hand over the reins.“The program is in tremendous shape. We have outstanding players and coaches and are poised to make another run at a Big 12 and national championship. We have new state-of-the-art facilities and a great start on next year’s recruiting class. The time is now because Lincoln Riley will provide a seamless transition as the new head coach, capitalizing on an excellent staff that is already in place and providing familiarity and confidence for our players. Now is simply the ideal time for me and our program to make this transition.”As Stoops noted, offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley, age 33 (!), will take over, effective immediately, and he will not be an interim coach. He is the new head man at OU — which means his offseason raise to $1.3 million makes a little bit (or a lot) more sense.Bob Stoops is 56 & has won 10 Big12 titles. I’m told his reasoning for stepping down now is because he’s ready & he wants to “go live life.”— Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) June 7, 2017last_img read more
