Three Reasons Your Resolutions FAIL
We are officially a few weeks in to 2018, meaning that many of us are knee-deep in taking on our resolutions.

Our May #WOWWednesday for May is Renelle Cannon.

Perine did need a little help in order for the proposal to go smoothly, so he requested help from a few of his Sooner teamates, other college football standouts and YouTube magician Daniel Fernandez.
During the act, Fernandez wanted to test Perine ... Read More
