Concussion ends Sooner DT's career

Posted by Tom Fornelli

Oklahoma's defensive line got a bit thinner on Thursday as the school announced that rising sophomore defensive tackle Daniel Noble will no longer play football for Oklahoma, or anybody else. Noble worked his way into the Sooners' defensive line rotation last season as a freshman, but suffered a concussion against Iowa State. Noble missed the rest of the season due to the concussion, and though he returned for spring practice, a setback kept him out of Oklahoma's spring game.

Now, with the effects of the concussion still lingering, Noble has decided to put an end to his football career.

“He's still having trouble,” Bob Stoops told The Oklahoman. “He was a strong, young guy that did well. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to get past the injury.” 

This news leaves Oklahoma with only three returning defensive tackles that have any playing experience: Casey Walker, Stacy McGee and Jamarkus McFarland. Redshirt freshman Torrea Peterson is the likely candidate to replace Noble in Oklahoma's rotation.

Oklahoma DT busted with pot

College students and marijuana go together like Lady Gaga and attention-craving antics, so odds are that there will never be a time that college students aren't experimenting with the demon weed. Still, that being said, I'm sure most college football coaches would appreciate it if their players could manage to avoid it. The latest coach to feel this way would be Bob Stoops.

One of his defensive tackles, Stacy McGee, was cited for marijuana possession on Sunday evening.
OU defensive tackle Stacy McGee was cited and released for misdemeanor possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia Sunday, Norman police spokeswoman Jennifer Newell.
McGee was pulled over by police on East Lindsey Street a little after 5 p.m. A police officer spotted one joint of marijuana and a marijuana grinder. Because he was a Norman citizen, McGee was allowed to do a sign and release.
The school has not made a statement about what punishment, if any, McGee will face.

As a sophomore, McGee started 10 of 13 games for the Sooners last season, finishing the year with 26 tackles.
