The mailbag!

Before we dive into the mailbag, I would like to wish everyone a HAPPY 4th of JULY! As many of you know, I love going to some away football games and plan on making the Duke game this season. In honor of the 4th of July weekend, here are some BNT home movies of a few patriotic trips I’ve made through the years.

Now to the mailbag:

Dru is either a true walk on freshman LB who played HS in Phoenix or this guy:

Take your pick, but I’m thinking it’s probably the first Dru.

I really think I should let daddingo answer this, but I won’t. I’m not sure how much more successful we would all be, but I do know that we would have awesome hair.

Feuerbacher should benefit from the new system and with the addition of Ish’s (Wainright) 7’1” wingspan, I’ll set the over/under at 6.

We will see 2 QB’s this season. I could even see us doing situational platooning between Zach and Anu. The staff wants to redshirt Brewer. Let us never have to engage the WildBear again...said with deep reverence and appreciation.

Demarco Artis will gain some attention. Folks, this D is going to pressure the QB’s and get sacks. PRINT THIS IN LETTERS 6’ INCHES HIGH!

Didn’t Herman already win the COY? Ok, the real answer is that if Rhule beats OU and wins 6 conference games, he’s got a legitimate shot. As for the players garnering awards, Taylor Young and KJ Smith on defense, with Mo Porter, Terence Williams, and newcomer of the year Ish Wainright on offense.



Being a basketball season ticket holder, I’m going to go with Jake Lindsey. He’ll become the glue like Ish was last season, plus he can score (even 3’s). The way Drew develops players and Jake’s noticeable improvement over the last 2 years, I’m excited to see him continue to evolve the next 2.

Other than being out for the season, I haven’t heard any negative news about the rehab.

This team, with this staff, with such unity and commitment, while still having a great deal of talent will surprise the pundits. I think we will go 10-3, which is real for me since I always say we’ll go undefeated.


I’d love for it to be Nana Osafo-Mensah, but heck if I know.

What do you mean? An African or European swallow?

I enjoy making the tailgate rounds. I look forward to seeing old friends this season, while making new ones who invite me to hang out for a bit. As long as there is food, root beer (wink, wink), and folks to chat with I have a good time. I mean get invited to opposing fans tailgates when I’m on the road. I have to say, there is no tailgating experience like McLane.
