Wow! What a TU comeback vs. Cincy; TU waits for bid

    

“Wow, what a season.” That’s the first thing that came to my mind Friday evening when The University of Tulsa defeated Cincinnati, 40-37, in overtime, in front of 18,555 fans at H.A. Chapman Stadium. With the win, Tulsa’s record improved to 9-3 overall and 6-2 in the American Athletic Conference. It’s the most wins in […]

I am thankful for all that I have experienced in sports

    

With a grateful heart, I present this message of Thanksgiving for a life spent working in sports. I’m thankful that I grew up in a city that, although small, offered many opportunities for me to be exposed to many different sports – as a player, coach, official and spectator. When I was young, Jamestown, New […]

Navy edges TU after controversial call on a QB fumble

    

What a game it was as the Tulsa Golden Hurricane battled the Midshipmen of Navy, but came up just short, on a controversial call near the end of the game. Navy defeated Tulsa 42-40, in Annapolis, Maryland, last Saturday. The controversial play came with 1:40 remaining on the clock, as Jesse Brubaker stripped the ball […]

TU keeps rollin’ to another win

    

When I think of The University of Tulsa football team, I can’t help but think of the old theme song from the television show, Rawhide. “Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’, go the lyrics. Keep movin’, movin’, movin’ Though they’re disapprovin’, keep them doggies movin’, rawhide.” That’s exactly what the Golden Hurricane has been doing throughout most of […]

TU is so much fun to watch

    

Sometimes “my view from here” is best from the couch in our living room, watching multiple games on my HD television – like what happened this past Saturday night as I was flipping back and forth between the Tulsa at Memphis football game and Game 4 of the World Series. The University of Tulsa Golden […]

Tulsa honors Dennis Byrd

    

One week after former University of Tulsa great Dennis Byrd died in an automobile accident, the Golden Hurricane honored him during their game against Tulane, Saturday at H.A. Chapman Stadium. Byrd was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash that occurred on Oct. 15 on Highway 88 between Oologah and Claremore. A 17-year-old Claremore […]

More to Ralph Terry’s story

    

Ralph Terry was the Most Valuable Player of the 1962 World Series, pitching the New York Yankees to victory over the San Francisco Giants in game seven of that series, but there’s a whole lot more to the story of the man that grew up in Chelsea, Oklahoma. I sat down with Terry last week […]

Ortiz, Garnett call it quits

    

Two of the biggest names, and bodies, in sports recently retired – Boston Red Sox slugger David “Big Papi” Ortiz and Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin “Big Ticket” Garnett. Ortiz announced last winter that the 2016 Major League Baseball season would be his last, and every team the Red Sox played this season presented him with […]

TU has historic comeback win; Arnold Palmer passes

    

All I can say is, “Too bad this wasn’t a home game for the Tulsa Golden Hurricane.” Tulsa’s football team scored its biggest come-from-behind victory in school history. After being down 31-0 in the second quarter, the Golden Hurricane came back to beat Fresno State, 48-41 in double overtime. “What a game! We spot them […]
