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.
Christian Laettner recently opened up about the pain he felt hearing gay slurs hurled at him while he was at Duke. The former national college player of the year was bombarded with the slurs as he led the Blue Devils to two NCAA titles. Derrick Gordon, the gay baller for UMass, on the other hand has not heard any of these slurs. Times have changed for sure, and the impact of Gordon actually being gay also plays a roll.
It's the role that a gay friend had in the life of Oklahoma Sooners linebacker Eric Striker, who said he has learned acceptance from having a gay person in his life. We talk about all of this - how acceptance is built by the presence of LGBT people in the lives of athletes and fans.

Oklahoma recruit Jean Delance said he withdrew his commitment to coach Bob Stoops after seeing a video that showed fraternity members at the school chanting racist remarks.
"Very uneducated people. I wouldn't want my son or child to go there or to anywhere like that," Delance told CBS 11 in Dallas-Fort Worth on Monday. "It was just very disturbing to me. I didn't like it."
Oklahoma Fraternity with the racist comments. We will discuss with Coach Emerson Martin and the crew tonight.
Delance, a four-star offensive lineman who is ranked No. 272 on the ESPN Junior 300, committed to the Sooners in November and visited Norman with his mother, Altavian, last weekend.
But when they returned to their home in Mesquite, Texas, the video, in which members of Sigma Alpha Epsilon also indicated that African-Americans would never be admitted to the fraternity, prompted them to rethink the commitment.
"I've had family history in racial issues, inequality," Altavian Delance told CBS 11. "Jean knows these things are serious to us."
Oklahoma president David Boren reacted swiftly Tuesday, expelling two students he says have been identified as leading the chant.
