Mixon should let Perine go, and him become the solo feature back if he wants big draft money. If he gets 25+ touches a game, it would help his stats and draft status
Jaw and he also wasn't a backup splitting reps with third teamers.
MIxon isn't going anywhere this year unless he messes up again leaves for another college team .
Teams aren't going to throw major money to a back up rb who has only played two years in college and also has huge baggage that will follow him to whatever organization signs him. He's very unproven and could be a PR nightmare if tape comes out ( even if he's stays out of trouble )
It's too easy to draft quality rbs . They are a dime a dozen .
MIxon will play on Sunday's but he's going to be in Norman at least a couple more years . Hopefully for his future the tape is never released because if it is , he may never make a team .
I'm not saying I agree with the PC women's movement , but sponsors do .
no way any player in their right mind would leave with two years available ( unless grade trouble/ injury problems )
He will have the best qb in the country, plus maybe the best oline in the country in 2017. Not to mention be the feature back .
You are acting like he's a once every 5 year qb , or a dominant left tackle , or a 300 pound defensive tackle who runs a 4.7
You act like scouts are drooling over him , rbs like him grow on trees .
He's a rb . Dime a dozen .
Not to mention a sophomore ....... Who doesn't even start on his own team .......... A broke a girls jaw in which video will more then likely come out within the next couple of years .
He WILL be back

Zero chance Mixon stays 2 years.
I'm expecting to see a bunch more tweets of this sort soon.
How does a staff prepare for a huge game while hosting the largest recruiting weekend in his tenure? Honestly what are the logistics?
All I ask is that OU beats Ohio State. The Notre dame game back in 2012 had the same buzz that this one does, be we came up short and didn't leave with any moment recruiting wise. If OU wins this game it's not only going to amplify this current class, it's will set the tone for 2018 as the class to be in IMO. This year could be one that was the fuel that launched OU into the Bama, Ohio State, territory in recruiting for years to come.
Also, my implied statement from above is that BOTH SCHOOLS are recruiting the same kid.
Second, how about this: last year the date to declare for the '16 Draft was 1/26/16. Let's assume the same day to declare for the '17 draft, 1/26/17. If Mixon hasn't declared by that date I will donate $100 to the American Cancer Society. (Stinger and I were gonna bet on something but then just decided that each of us would donate $100 to the USO and I can find that for proof of my word if you need.) If Mixon declares before that date you donate $100 to the American Cancer Society.
I know that I don't want your ass to see any of my money and I assume that you don't want my ass to see any of yours. Deal?
Again all these people thinking Joe is all about making millions or making the nfl ate completely wrong .
If that were true he would have transferred to Oregon / ucla and playing football as a true freshman vs sitting out a year not only from football but the team .
He and his family are intelligent people and they aren't going to throw always MILLIONS by coming out when he's not ready .
Again if his " plan was to play three years and go to the draft" he would have left OU in a heartbeat and started from day one at another program as a true freshman and on his way to the nfl after this season .
He's a team player and obviously being patient for better things in the future in not a problem , since he sat a whole season .
HOw many true freshman who are halfway across the country from home , who are told they are going to miss a whole season and barred from any team activities , know they could leave tomorrow, move closer to home and play instantly for another program ...... Stay ??? Not many
Chris Robison injured his shoulder in the first game...
Not gonna lie - I am loving this class.
But I am also watching 2.5* Mike Evans lighting up the Browns
Watched some of the HS football on ESPN Sat. and the network is pimping so hard in recruiting for the SEC it's sickening. They might as well list ESPN as a recruiting tool/service for the SEC.
SoonerSquad17 hit the gridiron in full force this weekend.
Week 0 is in the books, and Oklahoma’s commits put on a show across the country. Here’s a look at how the Sooners pledges fared over the weekend.
PS: Be sure and watch Levi Draper destroy some poor little kid.
Anthony Hines is committing on November 29th...the same day as Baron Browning. Something tells me that isn't a coincidence, and it scares the hell out of me! Browning is a Longhorn lock, hence why it scares me.
