    Oklahoma tight end Grant Calcaterra returns to football after brief retirement, enters transfer portal


    Oklahoma tight end Grant Calcaterra is back, but he doesn't plan on suiting up for the Sooners in the future. Calcaterra, who retired from football late last year, announced on his Twitter account that he would be returning to the sport, but entering the transfer portal.

    Oklahoma has 9 positives

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile, Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley said nine Sooners tested positive for COVID-19 after he gave his players a week break from team activities.

    In Norman, Oklahoma, Riley announced on Aug. 8 the Sooners were temporarily pausing preseason practices because of schedule changes. He gave players the option of returning home, though he said 75% stayed on campus.

    After the initial testing in preparation for the July 1 start of workouts, the program had just one positive result until this week. There were two rounds of tests last week, with one positive in 205 tests.

    “It’d be pretty easy to say right now that I regret it,” Riley said of giving the players a break. “I also feel like if I keep a team hemmed up here for a six or seven week training camp that I’d probably regret that too.”

    Riley said the outbreak showed the challenges that lie ahead when players cannot be kept in a virus-free bubble the the NBA and NHL are operating.

    “I think what we’re up against is something that’s doable, but the key is going to be for our players, our staff … how well can this virus be mitigated or stopped or contained when players or staff members are not in our facilities?” Riley said.

    You mean after they weren't in the structure of big time CFB, they were more exposed? Who could have guessed?

    Goes to my thinking that, if the team takes care of its business and ensures the other teams on its schedule do likewise, playing the season is safer from a COVID-19 standpoint than not playing.

    Oklahoma running back Kennedy Brooks opting out of 2020 season, per report

    Brooks has been the Sooners' top running back in each of the past two seasons


    The list of players opting out of the 2020 season continues to grow. One of the latest ones to reportedly do so also happens to be one of the biggest. According to Jason Kersey of The Athletic, Oklahoma running back Kennedy Brooks informed coach Lincoln Riley Sunday afternoon that he was opting out of the upcoming season. Neither Brooks himself, or Oklahoma, has made the decision official.

    The reported departure is also a massive blow to Oklahoma's ground game, which perhaps less-famously has consistently been one of the nation's best over the past few years. Trey Sermon, another reliable option from the past three years, transferred to Ohio State. Rhamondre Stevenson, who had 515 yards rushing and six touchdowns in 2019, will miss the first several games due to an NCAA suspension.

  9. If the Big 12 plays while we don't after Sermon transferred...man, that's just brutal.
