Todd Lisenbee returns to the Lederman Jacket and we’re joined by Steve Winkler, a lifelong OU fan and the host of the “Two Homers and Realist” podcast. After Bedlam stoked the flames on Big 12 officiating, we debate the myth vs reality on the narrative of perceived anti-Sooners refereeing bias rising among OU fans. From there, we dive into Brent Venables’ comments ahead of West Virginia and the Sooners’ Week 11 matchup with the Mountaineers under the lights in Norman.
