About

What can I say? Sports are my life. I love everything about them. I love to talk and write about them and I hope that you will enjoy what I have to say about the teams I love.

I am a junior broadcast journalism major at the University of Oklahoma. I absolutely love it there. It is definitely the place where God wants me and I praise Him for His provision and guidance. Like I said, my degree track is broadcast. I hope to someday be a sports commentator and call games, preferably college football, as a career.

I hope that you enjoy what I have to say about different issues and teams. If you don't, I openly welcome constructive criticism. I'm always striving to be a better writer and a better journalist, so any thoughts are taken with much appreciation.

    With your articles and others such as, Eric Pennell, Tom Guthrie, and Alex Joseph, I can stay in tuned on all things OU. I am applying to become a writer for BR, so hopefully I can eventually join you guys. Keep up the good work Luke.

    Hey Luke just read some of your articles and was impressed. I am a member of the Scouts SoonersIllustrated message board and we often leave links for our members to come to BR and read your articles . I just posted a post about you and your career goals and would like to invite you to come to our board and chat with us every once in a while. I am maximumsooner known as just max on the board so please feel free to call me out if you come over.

    We have a poster that has been in broadcasting for 50 years and would be very helpful to you in your quest. His handle of there is 12233 but we just call him Mr.. Numbers . His real name is Bernie. He runs a television station or something up in Kansas City. Anyway please come and visit and be sure tolet me know who you are and I willmake sure you get the proper respect . You know message boards they can be tough on Newbies sometimes but I have a lot of pull over there and I can make sure that you are respected from the get go. Your knowledge and career along with your mutual passion for everything Sooners will be very welcomed on our board. The older guys like 12233 and 5 decadesooner can be very educational as well. Here is the link: http://mbd.scout.com/mb.aspx?s=146&f=2445.

    best wishes ,
    Max or my real name is Rodney but don't tell the board .,LOL Only my closest friends over there know it.
    I will also keep your identity secret to the general board and will only tell them that you are friend of mine so treat with the upmost respect. I will introduce you to Mr. Numbers so that you 2 guys can talk about what ever you wish in private. He is a very intelligent man and has the same degree as you only he went to OU during the Bud Wilkenson days.

    Sorry if I bothered you just saw that you were a Sooner and thought that I might be able to help you expand your connections that are so important in your business.

    again,
    Best wishes.

    Luke,
    While you think Auburn going to stay off probation just remember one fact - the investigation isn't coming from the NCAA it's coming from the FBI. Just b/c the NCAA gave an OK doesn't mean anything b/c the NCAA is going to use the FBI investigation. Remember the FBI can compel witnesses and press charges, which the NCAA can't do.
    This thing is way bigger than one recruiting violation, its bigger than Cam Newton, and is of such scope it could bring down everybody involved including members of the board of trustees, bankers, boosters and coaches. Wait until late March, that's when the federal indictments will be made public. People have already gotten arrested. Including former officials with Colonial Bank.
    The media has been "strongly suggested" by the FBI to keep quiet so as not to interfere with the investigation apparently you did not attend that meeting at the federal building in Birmingham the week after the SEC championship last year.
    Did you ever wonder why the entirety of the media stopped reporting new information at the same time in this case? It's not because there's nothing new to report. They're doing what they're told.
    A couple of weeks ago the FBI filed paperwork to make sure that the activity they're pursuing (arrests, interviews) were not part of the public record until they wanted to release them.
    This thing ain't over yet. Just give some time, and it will all come crashing down.
