Oklahoma’s Wilson explains Sugar Bowl verbal exchange with teammate

Sometimes tensions boil over on a sideline, even when a team is about to pull one of the biggest upsets of the bowl season. At least, that is what Oklahoma’s Julian Wilson said about a sideline blowout in the Sugar Bowl as the Sooners were closing in on an upset of Alabama.

With under two minutes to play, Wilson and safety Gabe Lynn got in to what appeared to be a heated verbal exchange after the Sooners needed to call timeout due to a bad defensive formation. In an interview with The Oklahoman, Wilson said the incident was blown out of proportion.

“That’s the media,” Wilson said. “That’s how they work. It’s a little argument. If ya’ll had cameras on the sideline, we argue like that every series.”

On behalf of the media everywhere, I apologize.

Wilson added the incident was nothing abnormal.

“That’s football; people argue,” Wilson said. “But I was right. … I want to clear that up for everybody.”

Glad we got that all settled.

    Bama lost. Period. No excuses…as for reasons.Clearly playing for third place did not raise the Tide. Inexcusable,but genuine.

    If excuses are not needed, do not give one. The loss goes in the record book as that, a loss, No asterisk (playing for third base, team uninterested).

    “That’s the media,” Wilson said.

    Well he’s right….the fact that this is a story on February 7 proves it.

    Teammates argue a lot. It’s just that now days everything is caught on camera. Many times it’s a part of leadership. I remember back when coaches expected fights during spring training.
