  • 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.

  • 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
