Default Why Stoops Talked the OU Basketball Team into Visiting Normandy

Tramel: Why Bob Stoops talked OU men's basketball team into visiting Normandy

The only difference this time is we have a German on the roster who won't be playing but might have different feelings about the battle. However, I am sure he knows the history well.

He probably knows the history better than everyone else on the roster.
