  • Deanmurray1967 Asks: Mr. Ross; I am a 50 year old Canadian and a avid follower of both college( sorry but GO BLUE ) and the NFL. I would be very interested in your memories and thoughts on Marcus Dupree as a player and on his situation during his time at Oklahoma. Thank you Sir and God's blessing on you and your love Jan.
    J.R.'s Answer:

    The ESPN 30 for 30 tells the Marcus Dupree story amazingly well. He was the most immensely talented running back that I ever saw on any level in any era. Plus, he's a friend and a damn good dude.

  • Boomer Sooner Asks: JR, losing to Iowa State at home was heartbreaking and seeing them plant an Iowa state flag on our 50 yard line was a disgrace! We think part of the problem was Bob Stoops wasn't at the game, he was on a recruiting trip with his son. The team wasn't used to him not being there and Riley doesn't have the locker room yet. You would never see a Stoops defense give up 25 points in the second half in Norman to any Cyclones team! This season is ruined!
    J.R.'s Answer:

    Flag planting doesn't happen when the home team wins. End of story.

  • Hotty Toddy Asks: Random ass question: Thoughts on OJ Simpson potentially becoming a free man once again?
    J.R.'s Answer:

    Non plussed. No dog in the hunt.

  • MariahCareyLover Asks: Hey JR. Do you think Geno can take the reigns from Eli when the day comes that he hangs up his spikes or is that guy not even in College yet?
    J.R.'s Answer:

    Iffy at this time. Only time will tell based on what we've seen thus far.

  • jakefromstatefarm_116 Asks: How confident are you in Lincoln Riley as head coach for OU? He was great as an offensive coordinator without a doubt.
    J.R.'s Answer:

    Lincoln Riley is going to be a great, head coach at OU! Guaranteed.

  • POISON Asks: As an Oklahoma State Cowboy fan living in Norman, I'd be lying to say I'll miss Stoops. The Mullet vs Riley should be fun in the upcoming years, Go Pokes! P.s. really enjoy your sauces and ketchup
    J.R.'s Answer:

    Bedlam will always be fun no matter who the coaches are, IMO. Thanks for supporting our saucy efforts.

  • Boomer Sooner Asks: JR, whats your reaction to the sudden retirement of Bob Stoops? Did he tell you in recent months that this was on his mind? We're stunned! Its the end of an era. Coach Stoops is only 56 and already there's talk that he's just taking a year off before heading to the NFL. We'd rather it be that than it turns out that he or his wife have health concerns (another rumor) Really worried about how this will negatively affect next year's recruiting! Do you think Lincoln Riley at age 33 is too young to be a major college head coach? Hope it works out! Boomer Sooner!
    J.R.'s Answer:

    Lincoln Riley is not too young to be a head coach and he's a great fit at OU. Recruiting has never been better and it will only improve.

  • BuStA607 Asks: Do you find the timing of Bob Stoops stepping down a bit odd? Usually happens right after the season not in June.
    J.R.'s Answer:

    It was certainly unusual but odd? Not so sure about that but it was simply time. OU Football is in a good place.

  • DBob Asks: Are we still going to get the Black Hat on the sidelines or did you retire from walking the bench along with Coach Stoops?
    J.R.'s Answer:

    I haven't retired from my Sooners' sideline and Coach Riley is welcoming me back of which I sincerely appreciate.

  • JakeAlexander1995 Asks: Hey J.R.! Hope you're doing well, it was great seeing you call the UK title match at the Chicago takeover! With the football season approaching, I wanted to get your opinion on the deals made during the offseason, particularly that of Marshawn Lynch and Adrian Peterson as they find themselves on new teams for the 2017 season. What do you think we can expect from Lynch and Peterson this upcoming season? Also, what is your take on Dalvin Cook? Could he make a big impact with the Vikings?
    J.R.'s Answer:

    I see both AD and Lynch being contributors for their new teams but not on a full time basis. They seem to be situational running backs.
