Tough week of Thunder Free Agency got you down? Mail bag should be the pick-me-up you need. Also, keep in mind that Big XII Media days are right around the corner– July 18/19th.
@BoomOUUpdated are there any signs of any of the '17 DBs decommiting because of Cobb signing? Also still no word on Valentin?

That’s actually a pretty good question– people feared that if Stoops picked up Cobb (again), that maybe Tre Brown or Trajan Bandy would be out. Well, Tre Brown tweeted out the following after Cobb re-committed to the Sooners.
Never been scared of competition it's what got me here in the first place

So, that says something now doesn’t it? I know Bandy still has visits to Miami and S. Carolina and there is a lot of temptation from a South Beach kid to go play for the Canes, so that’s something to keep an eye on. As far as Valentin goes, he’s still not in the database but he did tweet out the post game Big XII Title rap by Malcolm Kelly the other day.
@BoomOUUpdated is Trae and Porter going to turn into another recruiting disappointment like Harrison Barnes and Terrance Jones?

I mean….. Never say never, right? Honestly, I DO see Trae playing in Norman. Unfortunately, I see him with a Jayhawk on his jersey while being coached by Billy Self. So probably yes. Also, sweet picture of Lauren Chamberlain.

I suggest lots of naps. Maybe some highlight videos and replays of games that aren’t miserable to watch? The summer Olympics might be fun? There’s beach volleyball and basketball. Like I said, Big XII Media Days are less than two weeks away and that means August is right around the corner.
