Head coach Lincoln Riley recently made some waves when he said the Sooners would no longer make coronavirus testing data public in order to get a “competitive advantage.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
Lincoln Riley says OU won’t be releasing football COVID testing data moving forward because of “competitive advantage.” OU has decided to start treating these things like injuries when it comes to public disclosure.

However, it turns out that Oklahoma is staying in contact with their opponents. According to Kirk Bohls, Riley said Monday that the Sooners are “reporting it to the teams we play.”
He said Missouri State had the coronavirus data going into their Saturday game.

Okay, this doesn’t really make sense. What competitive advantage is Oklahoma maintaining if the teams they’re playing get the data?
