In this episode, Guerin Emig joins me to try to answer a simple question: Why can’t the Sooners win at Allen Fieldhouse? 

We dive into Guerin’s background in Lawrence (0:50), the challenges visiting teams face on the road at Kansas (2:37), Oklahoma’s recent close class at ‘The Phog’ (6:45) and revisit Buddy Hield’s 46-point masterpiece in 2016 (10:00) as the Sooners visit the Jayhawks searching for a win at Allen Fieldhouse before they leave the Big 12.
