Former Oklahoma DL Tony Casillas Is Appalled That RB Joe Mixon Will Play For Sooners This Season

The De'Andre Johnson dismissal from Florida State has caused former Oklahoma defensive lineman Tony Casillas to think about his former school. 

Joe Mixon, a former five-star recruit, will suit up for the Sooners this fall. Mixon was suspended for the entire 2014 season after being charged with a “misdemeanor count of an act resulting in gross injury” following an altercation with a female student outside a sandwich shop. The 6-foot-2, 217-pound freshman has been practicing with Oklahoma since the spring. 

Casillas, who played for OU in the early-1980s before a 10-plus year career in the NFL, criticized Oklahoma president David Boren for allowing Mixon to play.

That's a strong take.
