After a disastrous finish to the 2012 season, Oklahoma coaches knew they needed to rebuild and revamp their defense. Nowhere is that more apparent than on the defensive line. When No. 16 Oklahoma hosts Louisiana-Monroe in the season opener Saturday, it's likely each of the four starters on the line will be making his first major-college start. Of the top eight players listed...

Depleted OU defensive line still looking to improve

NORMAN, Okla. -- First, defensive coordinator Mike Stoops said holding teams to 10 or 17 points in the Big 12 was unrealistic, making sure the bar was set a low, manageable level. Hey, maybe it was just a guy going with the ole' rope-a-dope. You know, tell everyone listening the defense shouldn't be expected to do too much, not that anyone really thinks Oklahoma will be...

Oklahoma's vanishing defensive linemen

Jordan Esco of Crimson and Cream Machine published a meticulous review of Oklahoma's recruiting classes since 2005 today in an effort to quantify the perceived decline in the Sooners' overall talent.

2012 Position Review: Defensive end

What did we think/hope would happen? R.J. Washington and David King would have great senior years, minimizing the losses of Ronnell Lewis and Frank Alexander. Depth would come from redshirt freshman Chuka Ndulue, JUCO transfer Chaz Nelson and possibly Rashod Favors. What did happen? David King was forced to split time between defensive tackle and defensive end due...
