Tomorrow the Oklahoma football team faces off against the Miami Hurricanes. Undoubtedly many Sooner fans would donate a kidney without anesthesia to beat "The U" after failing three times in the Eighties to do so.

 

The OKG Webmonkeys do remember those games and how painful to watch. Troy Aikman writhing on the Owen Field turf after Jerome Brown broke his ankle. (Remember the huge crown the field had back then?)  Vinny Testaverde and Michael Irvin's long touchdown passes. What do you remember from those games?

 

With Miami unranked and Oklahoma ranked in the Associated Press top five and playing at home, the Sooners might end the three-game series skid.

What about 'Flash Point?'

Oklahoma State University named BOK vice president and former gubernatorial candidate Burns Hargis as the school's next president. He will take over the job next summer, unless the Legislature allows him to take the office earlier.

 

Hargis is more known for his Republican touting credentials than his banking experience.

 

Which leads to this burning question: Who will replace Burns on "Flash Point?" Hargis started the weekly political talk show with former state attorney general Mike Turpen 15 years ago. It runs every Sunday morning on KFOR and is hosted by news anchor Kevin Ogle.

 

So which Republican pundit should fill the void?

 

Maybe Kevin can get his bro Kelly to move over and give his two cents?

Grace returns for four December episodes starting tonight

The set-in-OKC Turner Network Television series "Saving Grace" comes back to the airwaves tonight and will have four episodes airing Dec. 3, 10, 17 and 18.

 

Tonight's offering -- "It's Better When I Can See You" -- centers on the aftermath of a deadly school bus accident in which several children are killed. The team's investigation soon turns up information about a recall on the bus' rear axle.

 

But just as Grace goes to the bus barn to question the owners, tornadoes rip through which traps both Grace and her prime suspect together in a collapsed building.

 

Meanwhile, death row inmate Leon Cooley makes a major turn in his religious journey.

 

The episode features a special guest appearance by musical artist Everlast, the voice behind the "Saving Grace" theme song.

 

The OKG Webmonkeys will be watching tonight for sure! (Let's see if series creator Nancy Miller does a better job with a tornado plot than "Desperate Housewives" did last night.)

The state legislature this year did away with Oklahoma's anti-"speed trap" law which allowed citizens to file complaints against towns for using traffic tickets as a source of revenue.

 

Now, small towns across the state are said to be gearing up to get more tickets from passing motorists which leads the OKG Webmonkeys to ask: Know any good towns to avoid?
