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!

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.
And send us your feedback at @benjohnsontul or @michaelswisher

The family and I headed to the State Fair last Saturday afternoon for our annual food pilgrimage.
We have improved our experience and efficiency every year and this year made it in and out in a little over 2 hours!
For the second year in a row, we parked on the far northwest side, came in that entrance, headed south along the western column of food trucks towards the Big House, hooked a left inside the Bennett Event Center to cool down while crossing over to the eastern column of food trucks and fair games.
We then headed north along the eastern column towards the Farm Expo Center and then back out the Northwest Entrance, making one big loop.
It worked very well and will probably be the strategy moving forward. It covers all our main stops without ever having to double back or pointlessly wander around the Fairgrounds.
I must add, for high school basketball fans, the new Big House is coming along quite nicely with a lot of the initial framework completed. It will be interesting to see the progress made when we get to state tournament time in March.
As for the food and drink stops, they were the usual suspects.
First, and always first, the #1 must-get fair food staple, the corndog from Poncho Dog!
The best corn dog that I eat - all year long - will be this one from the State Fair, hands down. We all went with the $10 Jumbo Dog instead of the $6 regular dog and this seemed to be a great decision for everyone involved.
