Oklahoma Sooners Corey Nelson was having a career season before it was cut short after suffering a torn pectoral muscle against TCU on Oct. 5. Nelson, a defensive captain who finished with 27 tackles, had returned an interception for a touchdown against Notre Dame the week before. Nelson a team captain applied first to the Big 12 Conference for a medical redshirt but was denied. True freshman played in all 14 games as a member of special teams and backup linebacker and continued to raise his game each season. Upon leaving Skyline High School, Nelson was a Five-star recruit by Scout.com and 5A Player of the Year. Definitely one of the most athletic players at his position entering the 2014 NFL Draft.

With the Supreme Court set to debate gay marriage next week, we talk to Tanner Williams, a University of Oklahoma pole vaulter. This June, Tanner and his husband Scott celebrate their first anniversary. Tanner talks about how pole vaulting and his faith in God saved him in his homophobic town. His religion is important to him even as others use Christianity to keep gays down. We explore Tanner's story and the role of religion in the debate over gay rights.
Oklahoma has a history or racism. It is a fact that the worst race riot occured in Tulsa via " Greenwood" , Oklahoma . One of the first laws enacted in Oklahoma was one of segreatation. With the strong ties between the Klan and the Oil companies founded in Oklahoma. It is not surprising the recent events at Oklahoma University . The only way to impede free speech as I understand it - is to incite a riot or incite violence to a minority group. Let us have a discussion - you may be insulted on the program - be aware that oversensitivity as a form of abuse is not tolerated on this program.

Our show is two fold tonight. Rachel Maddow states wtih sketchy pessimism that the US Supreme Court may overthrow the use of lethal injection, Oklahoma has a Plan B. They plan to use another lethal substance to eliminate inmates on death row.
The debate of marriage rights will even become more divisive in 2016 Presidential hopefuls.
Finally, how to find peace in your daily walk with God.
Coping is fairly easy if you don't have 20 mile commutes; if you open your Bible every a.m. and Read Psalms 31 or 91. Keep it peaceful and manage your life.
If Sam Presti does not hire a coach that Kevin Durant is happy with, chances are Durant will leave Oklahoma City as an unrestricted free agent in July, 2016. That is a fact. Kevin Durant likes Kevin Ollie. That is a fact, too. And Kevin Ollie is Presti's No. 1 choice for the job. That fact was first reported by respected colleague Adam Zagoria, and it is 100 percent on the money.
So what to make of Ollie's statement today, tactfully written in the present tense, that he has "no plans" to leave UConn?
Well, put it this way. I have no plans to marry Taylor Swift. But if circumstances led to that being a possibility ...
As for the other two names that are out there, Billy Donovan and Fred Hoiberg, fans of the Thunder should ask themselves this: "Do either of those guys have a strong relationship with Durant?" Because you can be damn sure that Durant is going to have some input on who OKC's next coach will be. That is why my money is on Ollie -- even if it doesn't happen until the middle of the summer. I explain more in this interview on Erik Gee and Kelly Gregg on 107.7 The Franchise in Oklahoma City.
Oklahoma State Senator Joseph Silk has introduced a bill that would allow religious entities or businesses “operating consistently with sincerely held religious beliefs” to operate in accordance with those beliefs without facing legal consequences for doing so. In other words, if you are a wedding photographer or a bakery and you do not wish to provide your services for a same-sex wedding, based on religious objections, then there would be no legal consequences for refusing that business. Senator Silk has been facing a firestorm from LGBT activist since he gave an interview to the New York Times about the bill. The harsh push back has come as a result of the Times story taking a partial quote where he said that LGBT people “don’t have a right to be served in every single store,” He has responded to the Times quotes by posting a statement saying “Yes I did say that homosexuals do not have the right to be served in every store, just as I do not believe that I, my family, or anyone else have the right to be served in every private business. The right to provide services should be the decision of the business owners. We need to keep our country free and stop this radical, intolerant, movement.” We'll talk about the bill and the controversy.
Later we'll talk about some of the big stories from the past week. Don't forget about "Outrage of the Week" and "Headlines You May Have Missed".
