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

Lon Kruger spoke of the impact on his men’s basketball program last week but it’s quite possible the Thunder will have a big impact on OU football as well. After freshman Durron Neal tweeted about attending his first NBA game on Tuesday, it makes you wonder if you can add that to the selling points at the disposal of Sooners coaches.
