Todd Lisenbee is back with me on The Lederman Jacket as we react to news of Dillon Gabriel’s jump into the transfer portal. We talked about Gabriel’s surprise portal move (3:30), what the fifth-year QB might find in the transfer market (10:25), how his exit impacts the Sooners’ Alamo Bowl prep (14:33) and what the short and long term implications are for Jackson Arnold (19:13). From there, we hit on the Sooners’ New Year’s Six snub (29:22) and dive into the College Football Playoff chaos (38:48) before closing with a game of Lis-in or Lis-out (43:20).
