Oklahoma Spring Football Preview: Linebacker

The Sooners’ defense will be a huge question mark this season, just as it was last year when the “D” had many folks scratching their heads. As is the case with the defensive line this spring, uncertainty is the dominant theme at linebacker. There’s talk that defensive coordinator Mike Stoops is going to switch from the 4-3 to a 3-4 base defense. Whatever he does, he will...

Mixed bag of Sooners who've left early for NFL

Tony Jefferson, Kenny Stills and Tom Wort have decided to forgo their senior years at OU and enter the NFL draft. If history (of Sooners entering early) is any indication of how they’ll do in the pros, the bust potential seems high. Of those Sooners who decided to leave Norman early, only the All-Americans were successful on the next level. Roy Williams was the eighth overall...

Lack of defensive talent hamstringing Sooners

“If you can’t play defense, people will beat your ass.” Legendary Oklahoma coach Barry Switzer made that statement to the Tulsa World three days after the Sooners lost to Kansas State last year. And the King is right. The Sooners played horrible defense in 2012—ranking 45th in total defense by giving up nearly 379 yards a game and 40th in scoring by allowing 24.2...

2012 Position Review: Linebacker

What did we think/hope would happen? Returning starters Corey Nelson and Tom Wort would thrive in Mike Stoops' defense, which would let play like more traditional linebackers – stopping the run and covering short passing routes. OU would also start to develop some depth by playing backups Franklin Shannon and Aaron Franklin. What did happen? The LBs struggled...

Oklahoma 24, UTEP 7: The good, the bad, the ugly and the scary

All day Saturday watching college football, there were reminders of how badly college football needs exhibition football games that don't count.These first games are impossible to evaluate. Observers have no idea how good or bad UTEP is. Nelson Jeffery could go for 1,300 yards this year behind a decent UTEP OL. Or UTEP could go 2-10 and be awful. With that in mind, here'...

Observations from Oklahoma Sooners' scrimmage highlights

In his quest to make Oklahoma football even less fan-friendly, the Sooners have been going through a spring practice blackout again this year, per dictum of coach Bob Stoops.
