Yesterday, it was Miami suspending 4 players (2 of them starters) for the FSU game and today it's Oklahoma jettisonning its starting QB. Which means OU can look forward to a lot of 8-9 man fronts this season unless they've got another ready QB in the wings.

    OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma starting quarterback Rhett Bomar will not play for the Sooners this season following an investigation by the team, according to a television report.

    Oklahoma confirmed that two players had been dismissed by the team but did not identify them. The school said in a statement that the players violated NCAA rules by working at a private business and taking “payment over an extended period of time in excess of time actually worked.”

    Oklahoma City television station KWTV reported that Bomar, who set an Oklahoma freshman record with 2,018 passing yards after taking over as the Sooners’ starter in the second game last season, was one of the two players who had been permanently dismissed.

PTI was saying that the Sooners have a JUCO QB and a WR fighting for the starting job.

Yeah, from what I heard briefly on the radio the dude was working five hours a week and yet reported earning over $15,000 last year on his taxes. Smart move.

That WR is likely the kid who was the starting QB at the beginning of last season who sucked so horribly they moved him to WR and put in Bomar.

PreSeason #1 (in some/most publications) Oklahoma throws their QB off the team for making too much money? What in the name of Charles Thompson has happened to Oklahoma? Hell, if Switzer was still there they'd consider the $15k being underpaid.
One month until Notre Dame's season starts and things look brighter.

Sweet. Now maybe they'll only beat Washington by three TDs instead of seven or eight.

So I take it they weren't working on commission at the car dealership?

That'd be Paul Thompson. I don't see how a year at receiver would allow him to rise above horrid at QB. But, he is more mobile. The other guys are a junior college transfer (whose numbers in JC were pretty mediocre), a true freshman and a walk on. Peterson may actually see the first 9 man front since the 1930s. Not good times in OU. But, good times for me.

The other thing is that they haven't been able to recruit any blue chip QBs because of Bomar's presence. So, not only is the cupboard bare this year, but none of the top QB recruits for next year have been looking at OU. Of course, it's OU so I'm sure they'll get someone.

Still, classy and ballsy move by Stoops. He absolutely didn't have to dismiss Bomar (and a starting guard) from the team; I don't think many other top programs would do that, especially given the QB options for both this year and next year.

Yeah Thompson is gonna suck likely. But I don't see it as classy by Oklahoma so much as the only option they had. I think any other major school would have dismissed a kid for doing what he did. This isn't the typical got a free jacket or missed too many meetings stuff. The NCAA would have NAILED OU for this one if they didn't act in the way they did. The only way to avoid penalties from the NCAA would be to kick the players off the team immediatly.

Also to whoever said it, I haven't seen OU as preseason number one in any of the major publications this year. It's been all Ohio State and Notre Dame(yeah right).

I think the point though is that there's been so many stories of wrongdoing of this nature being stuck away in a drawer (by your program, by my program, by most major programs, etc) that it almost seemed quiant for Stoops to actually do the right thing in this case as opposed to all the incidence where we know that the right thing wasn't done at Oklahoma in particular, who only really got busted in 1989 once they were becoming a public embarrassment to the NCAA.

Speaking of wrongdoing by your program(you know I couldn't resist), what exactly is the scoop down there on why Miami suspended those guys? And what's up with them not letting Willie pick what school he wants to go to? Not that he deserves anything nice from them, but just curious.

Re the Gang of Four: Coker's not saying, Moore's case was apparantly isolated from the other guys and Ty Moss only felt compelled to publically apologize for "doing a dumb thing".

Re Predatah: Basically he wants a transfer because he's been lapped by Spencer Akins and James Beason on the depth chart, period. And his conditions of being allowed to transfer were clear: no one on this year's schedule and no one within the conference. One of the schools he wanted to try and transfer to was Louisville, but since they're on Miami's schedule this year they didn't want him going up there and giving away Miami's defensive playbook even if he wouldn't be able to actually play.

They only worked 5 hours a week.

This is the same dealership that was investigated after they gave Adrian Peterson a car.

It's Warren Sapp, who hinted as much in January. ESPN - Sapp files paperwork, officially puts end to 13-year career I'm somewhat surprised that someone as outspoken as Sapp decided to go so quietly.
