for breaking team rules.
or do they get anything?
Stoops announced they'd be reinstated on Oct 13th
Trey Franks out for the season
Jaz Reynolds out for 7 games.
they must have done something pretty bad.
On the other hand, I'm thinking there will be a reduction in that suspension come fall
Maybe JMill's dad was on to something...
@CoachJayNorvell go ahead and play kids that disrespect u and fail drug tests instead of working hard. They deserve it.

By the way, the rumor by an insider is that synthetic marijuana is a serious problem in their locker room.
They have rules? When did that happen?
That synthetic stuff sounds like bad shit from what I've heard. it's amazing the crap people are willing to do to their bodies just for a buzz.
Synthetic marijuana? Wouldn't that be more trouble than growing it?
Funny how things work these days.
I will have an ever so small iota of respect for Stoopid if he has the balls to keep then suspended through the Texas game. No one except Roger Goodell does any more but that's a different topic all together.
3 of the 4 will never play another down for OU.
There is nothing more dangerous in this world than a man with nothing to lose.
You will forgive me for being skeptical, but a few years back Stoops kicked a kid off the team for putting his buddy in the hospital. Then proceeded to get that year counted as a medical redshirt year. So, yeah, I'm gonna have to say I'll believe it when I see it.
Reynolds is a big loss.
We've already seen what happens when Jones loses his good receivers, and it's not pretty.

Synthetic is much easier to get, especially if you don't have contacts i.e. know a friend of a friend who knows a dealer.
Plus it's a lot cheaper.
...from what I've heard in a third hand conversation by the watercooler few weeks ago...Yeah. :-D
There was never a rule that I didn't like!
It's very hard to understand them.
I didnt like that situation at all. Accident or not, he should not have been able to return, but that was then. I think these guys are going to have to do things the right way to be allowed back on the team and IMO, they just arent going to do it. Jackson already wants to leave, Franks has been here before and I dont know what the heck Reynolds problem is. If they are truly dismissed, we will have a lot of youth on the field come September. This summer will be huge for those WRs we picked up to get on the same page as Jones. Metoyer and Gardner (if he makes it) are extreme talents, but we will see. Lots of "potential", but we will see.
This sounds like a similar situation that Urban Meyer had his last few years at Florida.
Stoops dismissed a few players after last season. Sounds like he's not putting up with any more s**t from players who break the rules. I've admired him ever since he kicked the starting QB (Bomar) off the team one month before the season started when OU was a pre-season top 5.
According to Jake Trotter at least 19 #Sooners have transferred, quit the team or been suspended since August.
WTF, He had no choice, as the NCAA had ruled Bomar ineligible to play.
With Stills and Metoyer starting on the outside, who do you think will be the slot guy? Gardner seems to be the most ready since he's a JUCO, but I thought he was an outside guy as well.
Gardner has to take two classes this summer to qualify
Bomar wasnt ruled ineligble yet. Stoops kicked him off the team prior to the NCAA investigation.
Stills will go to the slot and Gardner and Metoyer will play the outside. Stills better hope he doesnt lose his job becuase IMO, we have better slot guys coming in and he went belly up when he was put in the #1 slot at the end of last year. Shephard and Neal are going to make a serious push for that slot position. Gardner and Metoyer are better WRs than Stills. Tougher with better hands. Metoyer has hands like Broyles and thats saying a lot. Going to be very interesting to see the battles for playing time at WR, RB, LT and G.
We might be running a lot more than we thought.
