  • Parlay_King Asks: What are you looking forward to the most in the upcoming NFL Draft?
    J.R.'s Answer:

    To see where my OU Sooners are drafted and by whom.

  • Longtime guy Asks: JR presumably Tony Romo has some football left in him. The Texans would seem like a fit, but that's gotta concern Jerry, to have him in his back yard like that. Where do you see Romo playing this year ? Thanks as always
    J.R.'s Answer:

    He will want a playoff to go to contender with a good O Line if he staying on the field and out of the TV studio.. Not sure the money is the key driver here.

  • Boomer Sooner Asks: JR, its sure seems like OU has a PR problem with this Baker Mayfield situation. Its not good when the team captain gets arrested for drunk and disorderly and resisting arrest. Assuming his lawyer gets him out of trouble, how would you handle this internally? I'd say he should lose his captaincy and he is suspended out of the spring game and the UTEP game at minimum. But we'd need Baker back for Ohio State. Just don't want Baker turning into another Johnny Manziel!
    J.R.'s Answer:

    Baker made a young man's mistake while out with his friends. I'm sure that this matter will be addressed internally. I'm not concerned whatsoever.

  • restoretulsa Asks: Mr Ross, I run a thrift store in Tulsa and came across a couple autographed pictures of you and Barry Switzer that were addressed and personal messages written on them to a Bob Kinney in 1987. I was hoping to get these back to his family as I have no interest in selling them or destroying them. If you can help in anyway please contact me @ 918-231-6899. Thanks You so much. Btw, on of Barry's players at OU, Kyle Irvin, who was there in 85-87 I believe works for us here at Habitat for Humanity. Anyway, if you can help I would appreciate it. Thank you.. LesterBrown.
    J.R.'s Answer:

    I've lost contact with my old, frat brother Bob Kinney who's been in Tulsa for as long s I can remember. Wish I could help you. Sorry

  • jakefromstatefarm_116 Asks: If your Steelers make it to the Super Bowl, any chances you'll make it to Houston that day? HERE WE GO!
    J.R.'s Answer:

    We are attending the Super Bowl no matter who is in it but we are certainly hopeful that the Steelers make it.

  • the tennessee stud Asks: JR, we saw an ad for a new 30/30 documentary set to debut on ESPN the week before the Super Bowl, which is titled, "This was the XFL-- the story of the XFL" Were you interviewed or contacted to appear on this? It says its being produced by Charlie Ebersol, Dick Ebersol's son, so I guess Ebersol's views will be highlighted If they asked, what would you say went wrong with the XFL? I always thought it deserved a second season, I mean who can make a league work in one year?
    J.R.'s Answer:

    I wasn't interviewed. I loved the XFL experience. NFL influence media wanted it dead. The play on the field would have a been infinitely better in year two but he loses were too significant to fund a another year.

  • highlyunlikeable Asks: Hi JR - Apparently NFL ratings are down for this year..Do you attribute this to a fickle client-base, clamped down celebrations or what? Complex answer for a basic question I'm sure. BTW - I can totally see Roger Gooddall strutting into an auditorium with Vinces "No Chance" intro blasting behind him
    J.R.'s Answer:

    overexposure, lack of ample 'main eventers' and parity are all culprits.

  • MariahCareyLover Asks: Hey JR. The Cowboys would you stick with Prescott or go back to Romo?
    J.R.'s Answer:

    Prescott. No question, for now.

  • MariahCareyLover Asks: Hey JR. Why do you think The Giants get no love from anyone? 2012 just off winning The Super Bowl everybody they were favored to lose. A 2-9 team they'd be 6 point underdogs. This year they have 6 game winning streak "Well who did they beat" Just last night,that was a defense game it happens,they bottled up the top team with a high power potent offense,instead of giving them credit what is the first thing out of people's mouth? "The offense was this, Eli Manning did this" Every team besides them a win is a win but The Giants they have to best New England in Foxbourough 45-0 for it to be an "ok" win.
    J.R.'s Answer:

    Could be that they are the New York giants as some folks don;t like New Yorkers is one guess. Plus we live in a contrarian society.
