When he played point guard at Oklahoma State, there used to be a rule in The Oklahoman sports department: “Doug Gottlieb isn’t going to be in Stillwater much longer, so let’s talk to this guy every chance we get.”
Apparently, Jim Mora doesn’t ascribe to the Gottlieb Doctrine. This interview on ESPN Radio’s Doug Gottlieb Show is downright uncomfortable to listen to in spots.
Suffice it to say that the former Atlanta Falcons and Seattle Seahawks coach doesn’t share Berry Tramel’s view of Doug as an engaging conversationalist.
This is just a test
Before he was a Ram, former Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford and some other members of the NFL Draft class of 2010 obliged a request from trading card company Upper Deck to sing their school’s fight song.
Cue Simon Cowell.
You be the judge of which rendition of “Boomer Sooner” is best, Bradford or Gerald McCoy’s, though neither was very inspired. Also, watch Dez Bryant sing “Ride ‘em Cowboys,” which could have used musical accompaniment.
Colt McCoy does a spirited “Texas Fight” — apparently without benefit of cue cards. While most of the players had to perform a capella, Jimmy Clausen got to sing “Notre Dame Victory March” to music. And guess who won the grand prize, an autographed pair of LeBron James shoes?
