Triple Option: Jones absent from Big Board 

May, 10, 2012
Every weekday morning, a member of the SoonerNation gives his take on three things happening in the Sooner sports world.

1. ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper released his Big Board this week as he listed the top 25 draft prospects, including underclassmen, for the 2013 NFL Draft. Surprisingly, one local name was missing: Landry Jones. The Oklahoma quarterback, who likely spurned the opportunity to be a first-round pick to return to Norman, was left off a list which included three quarterbacks. USC’s Matt Barkley (No. 1), Virginia Tech’s Logan Thomas (No. 4) and Arkansas’ Tyler Wilson (No. 13) are rated ahead of Jones.

2. After winning the Big 12 Women’s Golf Championship, the Sooners women tee off in the NCAA West Regional in Erie, Colo., today. The No. 9 seed in the West, OU will have to finish among the top eight teams at the regional to earn its first NCAA Championship appearance since 2000.
