The Commerce Department should have taken Kyler Murray’s negotiating team to the G-7 Summit meeting last week. First, his team negotiates a $4.7 million dollar paycheck…then a deal is struck that will allow Murray to forgo his professional baseball career until after this year’s football season. Kyler Murray used OU football as a bargaining chip in a manner rarely seen. Murray moved up some 31 rungs on the draft board in less than a week. OU fans are coming out of this deal smelling like a rose.
Keep in mind that none of this would have happened if the Oakland A’s did not see Murray as the 2nd coming of Rickey Henderson. It would also not have happened with out OU football being king. Kyler Murray believes in his heart that he can be the reincarnation of Rickey Henderson, he also believes that he can lead football to the promised land in 2018.
This fall, OU fans will be treated to Kyler Murray directing the next Sooner football juggernaut and then in the spring, OU fans can watch Kyler Murray impersonate Rickey Henderson. I remember watching Ricky Henderson play for the A’s back in his prime and that guy was some kind of special. The Oakland A’s have been doing this for a while so I expect they know what they are talking about in comparing these two players.
One last comment on this subject…how is it possible that Texas A&M could let this guy get away…there must be something in the water at an Aggie school. A&M can change coaches until the cows come home, but those guys will still be Aggies.
As for my fellow Sooner fans…there must be something in the water in Norman these days as well. It’s called good Karma…keep those positive thougths going OU fans. Life is good.
