It was all about Oklahoma at ESPN's campus in Bristol, Conn., Friday, as quarterback Landry Jones, receiver Ryan Broyles and coach Bob Stoops visited.
Jones and Broyles shared a desk for a morning appearance on "SportsCenter" before heading outside to the football field for some work with ESPN Rise, where they revealed a trick play.
They came back inside for an appearance on "First Take" before doing radio shows and a podcast with Doug Gottlieb, Scott Van Pelt and Ivan Maisel.
The pair did a couple more spots on "SportsCenter" and a radio appearance on ESPN Dallas sandwiched around a live chat on ESPN.com.
Here are few highlights from the chat:
Parrish Aiguier in Midland, Texas asked: Landry what has been our favorite game that you have played in since coming to OU? Ryan same question to you
Landry Jones: My favorite game is always the OU-Texas game. That's my favorite to play in. It's fun.
Ryan Broyles: Not to be boring, but mine's pretty much the same.
Chris in Houston asked: The color orange, in any form, makes me wanna puke! Do you agree?
RB: My high school team was orange, so it's kind of ingrained in me. But when it's opposite of me, I am not a big fan.
LJ: My high school was orange too.
Dan Pacsoza in Columbus, Neb. asked: With Coach Wilson gone and Coach Heupel taking over will we see much changes on offense,and will we see more of the Diamond formation? Boomer Sooner!!!
LJ: Good question. We won't see much change in the offense. Just changes in the style of play calls.
RB: We won't be as conservative. Go down field more. But I don't think we'll see a lot of change.
David in Kabul, Afghanistan asked: Who wins in one on one basketball with you too? Boomer Sooner, Good Luck This Year Boys!
LJ: I do.
RB: We had a little tournament going and my team beat Landry's. We're supposed to win the championship game. My team against Landry's.
LJ: But one on one, do you want to go out on the court right now?
RB: But I played with Blake Griffin in AAU.
E-DOOM in Nebraska asked: For both. What is the toughest secondary in the Big 12
LJ: It was Nebraska.
RB: That's what I was going to say. Why? Because they had 6 DBs.
Timm Decker in Louisville, Kent. asked: What was a reason behind both of you came back this year besides winning the BCS?
LJ: For me, I really didn't have an option of leaving, I don't think. For me, it was pretty easy to come back and finish up my career.
RB: To finish up and graduate. Walk across the stage. The college atmosphere. Enjoy being a student.
Fall camp at Oklahoma kicks off on Aug. 4, but the trip to Bristol came just days after Big 12 Media Days, and served as a final look for fans before the Sooner chase the program's eighth national title, beginning with a game against Tulsa in Norman, Okla. on Sept. 3.
