Oklahoma's Stephen Good arrested

Posted by Tom Fornelli

Oklahoma left guard Stephen Good probably should have stayed home on Saturday night following Oklahoma's win over Texas A&M on Saturday. Six hours after the game had ended, Good was arrested in Norman following an altercation at a restaurant.

According to a report in the Tulsa World, Good got into a fight at Seven47, a restaurant and night club, around 1am on Sunday morning, in which Good shoved his victim's head against a wall. Good was arrested on a misdemeanor assault and battery charge, but was allowed to leave the premises after signing the municipal complaint.

Good has only started 11 games at Oklahoma in his four years, including two starts this season against Ball State and Texas, but he's been a regular part of the rotation at left guard. He saw some time there against Texas A&M on Saturday.

There's been no word from Oklahoma yet on whether or not he'll be punished further by the team.

Sooner starting C Ben Habern out with broken arm

Posted by Jerry Hinnen

There wasn't a lot of happiness surrounding the Oklahoma Sooners after their 38-28 win over Missouri Saturday, and at first most of it was because of what the Sooners felt like was poor play on their part--just ask either Travis Lewis or Brent Venables. But an announcement Sunday gave them even more reason for disappointment.

Per Oklahoma RapidReporter Andrew Gilman, head coach Bob Stoops confirmed Sunday that starting center Ben Habern would miss anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks with a broken bone in his arm suffered during the win over the Tigers. Habern underwent surgery late Saturday to repair a break in the radius, one of two bones in the forearm.

Stoops said that Habern could return to the starting lineup in as a little as four weeks if he moved to guard. But his injury will require him to wait at least six weeks before reclaiming his center position, and as many as eight.

Current starting left guard George Ikard is expected to take over for Habern at center, with his backup, senior Stephen Good, projected to pull in the starting lineup to replace Ikard.

A starter in 24 games entering this season, Habern was named freshman All-Big 12 in 2009 and was a preseason first-team All-Big 12 pick this year. Though his absence won't be felt this week against Ball State and we'd wager on him returning in time for the Sooners' Nov. 5 visit from Texas A&M, Habern may be missed during the Red River Rivalry game against Texas in two weeks.

If so, expect the Sooners to even less happy with the Missouri win than they already are*.

*Though All-American wide receiver Ryan Broyles will no doubt remember the weekend more fondly; he proposed to his girlfriend Sunday, who said yes. This is the second time we've reported a Sooner engagement at Eye on CFB -- Landry Jones's was the first -- and trust us, we're as surprised as you are.
