We finally took the plunge and did a deep dive into the long-standing public schools vs. private schools debate in Oklahoma. Cashion head football coach (and athletic director) Lynn Shackelford (24:45) joined us to share his thoughts from the public side, and Bishop Kelley athletic director Lance Parks (46:24) offered up some insight from the private school side.
Regardless of which side you're on, both make great points. Both have valid arguments.†
Also, we talk about some recent football commitments, including Broken Arrow's Andrew Raym siding with the Sooners. The chat briefly about OSU's recruiting class after Bixby's Brennan Presley vowed his commitment to the Cowboys.
But perhaps most importantly, we talked food (5:46). Is there a place that we think is overrated? Underrated? FYI: We talked pizza!
Have your own thoughts on food or the public/private debate? Tweet us at @benjohnsontul or @michaelswisher.†

FOOTBALL'S BACK!! Well, not really. But kind of.
Skordle is hosting two different 7-on-7 football tournaments, all thanks to wonderful sponsors, Tulsa Tech and Charleston's.
The guys break down both Showdowns, and chat about players to watch and what to keep an eye out for. And shoutout to the 7-on-7 event in Norman live streaming several of the matchups.
Later in the episode, the OSSAA's Chris Wilfong joins the podcast to talk about his tremendous website - IWasAtTheGame.com ... if you've never checked it out, do it now. It has everything you'd ever want to know about high school sports in Oklahoma.
As always, thanks for listening.

While out trick-or-treating with my kids Monday night, I was having a discussion with some of the other parents in our group about my Halloween experiences as a kid.
I vividly remember always loving the houses that gave away homemade cookies, brownies, caramel apples and - especially - popcorn balls.
I was reminiscing and remembering the good olí days when people used to hand out these homemade treats and it really made Halloween special.
As my kids were about midway through the evening and collecting a ton of Halloween candy, all three of them came running back to me telling they were just given popcorn ball.
They all wanted to know what it was exactly and if it was good?
Is it good?!?!?!?!?!
