Kevin Wilson is the new head coach at Indiana.

His name probably sounds familiar because he was the long-time offensive coordinator at Oklahoma.

From 2002-2010, Wilson served as offensive line coach and co-offensive coordinator for the Sooners. He also coach the fullbacks and tight ends. Under his guidance, Oklahoma played in seven Big 12 Title games in his nine years, going 6-1. His offensive machines were vital to accumulating an overall record of 99-24 (.805) during his time in Norman, Oklahoma, including seven 10-win seasons.

One of the most prolific and innovative offensive minds in college football, Wilson was named Indiana University’s 28th head football coach on December 7, 2010.

Wilson has also coached at North Carolina, Winston Salem State, North Carolina A & T, Foard High School in North Carolina, Miami of Ohio and Northwestern.

Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck decided to finish his college studies and get his degree in his 20′s rather than wait until after an NFL career where he would have to return to college in his 30′s or even 40′s.

He is passing up the possibility of being the NFL’s #1 pick in the 2011 draft.

Luck ended the suspense of whether he was staying or going before the deadline when underclassmen in college have to declare for the NFL draft.

Luck, who sat out his first season as a redshirt and has two years of eligibility remaining, but is on schedule to graduate next spring.

The Heisman Trophy finalist says he is committed to earning his degree in architectural design and will earn his degree in the spring of 2012.

Luck was the runner-up this football season to Auburn’s Cam Newton for the Heisman Trophy and will be one of the favorites for the 2011 award.

Luck ended the season on a high note, completing 18 of 23 passes for 287 yards and four touchdowns as the 5th-ranked Cardinal defeated #12 Virginia Tech in the Orange Bowl, 40-12.

Stanford ends the year at 12-1.

Luck is the son of former NFL quarterback Oliver Luck, is one of the reasons Stanford has gone from a one-win also-ran in 2006, to one of the top teams in the country. He has led the Cardinal to a 20-5 record in his 25 career starts, missing only the Sun Bowl last year against Oklahoma because of a broken right index finger. Stanford loss the game to the Sooners.

Cincinnati Bearcats win at Oklahoma proves point to critics

The college basketball experts, or that is what they call themselves, were very critcal of the Cincinnati Bearcats basketball team eventhough they were 9-0 heading into their matchup at Oklahoma last weekend.

Their games were mostly blowouts against mid-major schools. The only teams that were good on their schedule were Dayton (9-3) and Wright State (7-5), two schools 50 miles up the road, north of their campus. UC beat Dayton on a night when the Flyers couldn’t buy a basket and they barely escaped a scrappy Wright State team.

The other opponents that they beat included, Carleton University, Indiana University-Southeast, Mount St. Mary’s, Indiana/Purdue-Ft. Wayne, Florida A&M, Savannah State, Toledo, Utah Valley and Georgia Southern. You can see why the critics were overlooking their 9-0 record.

The Bearcats went into Oklahoma City last Saturday and beat the Oklahoma Sooners in the 75th All-College Basketball Classic, 66-56 to win the championship trophy.

The Bearcats had passed their first test against a team from a major Conference. They showed Big 12 member Oklahoma and the 10,625 fans at Oklahoma City Arena that they are indeed a solid basketball team.

The Bearcats entered the game as one of only nine unbeaten teams left in the country and left it at 10-0.

UC led for most of the game but had to overcome several comeback attempts by the Sooners, who fall to 5-6. The last attempt by Oklahoma came near the end of the game when they cut a 12-point UC lead down to seven with 1:22 to go.

Cincinnati iced the game by sinking nine of 10 free throws in the final 1:06.

The Bearcats relied on their defense, holding Oklahoma to 33.3 percent shooting and their lowest shooting percentage of the season.

Yancy Gates scored 11 points and grabbed seven rebounds despite missing all but five minutes of the first half with foul trouble. But despite that, Gates was voted the game’s Most Valuable Player. He scored nine of his 11 points in crucial situations in the second half.

Last Saturday night’s game between Oklahoma and Cincinnati showed several things.

Oklahoma sweated out another close win, but their defense needs some work.

Cincinnati had a breakthrough game on offense, but once again turnovers hurt their cause.

The Sooners 31-29 win over Cincinnati at Paul Brown Stadium, was tight all the way to the final minute of play when the 8th-ranked team recovered an onside kick to keep its record unblemished at 4-0.

This is an improvement over 2009, when the Sooners couldn’t win any close games especially on the road, losing four times by a touchdown or less.

The Sooners close losses in 2009 include losing their opener against Brigham Young University 14-13 in Arlington, Texas. They lost at Miami 21-20. They lost to Texas 16-13 and at Nebraska 10-3 which led to an un-Sooner-like season of 8-5.

This season, three of their four wins have been by a touchdown or less. The beat Utah State 31-24 in week 1; slide by Air Force 27-24 and got past Cincinnati last weekend.

Sophomore quarterback Landry Jones completed a career-high 36 passes in 51 attempts for 370 yards and two touchdowns, the final score to freshman fullback Trey Millard with 4:31 remaining in the fourth quarter. Jones’ second touchdown pass put Oklahoma in control of the game.

Several younger players stepped up allowing Oklahoma to remain undefeated. Kenny Stills, a freshman, had four receptions for 72 yards. James Hanna, a reserve junior tight end, recovered D.J. Woods’ fumbled punt return at Cincinnati’s 7-yard line, setting up the Oklahoma game-clinching touchdown pass to Millard.

The Cincinnati Bearcats finally found its games after tough losses on the road to Fresno State and North Carolina State, but are just 1-3 and have their fans wondering if the program is going fall back into its losing ways prior to the arrival of coaches Mark Dantonio and Brian Kelly who revived the program and kept it going. New coach Butch Jones has his work cut out for him because expectations are high for the two-time defending Big East champions.

Oklahoma’s defense made plays when they had to. Safety Jonathan Nelson had two huge plays in the first half. He ran down D.J. Woods who was ahead of everybody by 20 yards on a 73-yard pass reception, punching the ball loose from behind at the 5-yard line. The ball rolled into the end zone and Oklahoma recovered holding onto the lead.

Nelson also intercepted a pass in the end zone late in the first half. Those two, huge plays helped the Sooners lead 17-9 at halftime.
