Podcast: Sooner Legend Paul Thompson

Paul Thompson won a special place in Oklahoma Sooners lore by stepping in at quarterback to lead OU to the 2006 Big 12 championship. Paul drops by for a podcast to reminisce about the old days, talk about what he's doing now and give his take on the state of the program in 2011.

Paul and I discuss:

  • Rhett Bomar's dismissal and the circumstances surrounding his move back to QB on the eve of fall camp;
  • what made the '06 team so special;
  • the hardest parts of quarterbacking at OU;
  • the keys to Josh Heupel's success at developing quarterbacks and his long-term prospects as a head coach;
  • Paul's outlook for the 2011 season; and
  • what Paul's working on now.
