As fans of the Oklahoma Sooners get ready for Thursday night’s BCS championship game against Florida, many are turning to a Washington and Lee alumnus for up-to-the-minute reports. Jake Trotter, Class of 2004, is one of the beat writers for the Sooners at Oklahoma City’s daily newspaper, The Oklahoman. Trotter has had an eventful season even if the Sooners hadn’t made the championship game. In July Trotter and his newspaper sued a Nebraska fan who works at the University of Texas for publishing a bogus story on the Internet with Trotter’s byline on it. The fake story reported the arrest of two Oklahoma quarterbacks. You can read Trotter’s blog or watch him discuss the Sooners in one of the Okahoman’s videos.
