The picture is an SI cover from 1989 when Oklahoma had a lawless football program. That person is Charles Thompson, Oklahoma quarterback. Thompson was a redshirt freshman when he was handed the O for Game of the Century 2 in 1987. (It was between Oklahoma and Texas). Thompson was told by Barry Switzer that "you will shock the world."
