Oklahoma Sooners Safeties: The Other Big Hole That No One is Talking About

The Sooners do return a lot of talent, maybe more than ever under Stoops. The award watch lists and preseason Big 12 teams are littered with Sooners, but you hear non-stop about how the offensive line is the key to the Sooners' season.

Because of Bomar's presence, however, quarterback had not been a big recruiting priority for...

Because of Bomar's presence, however, quarterback had not been a big recruiting priority for Oklahoma. After Thompson, the Sooners are down to unimpressive juco transfer Joey Halzle and incoming true freshman Sam Bradford, Scout.com's 17th-rated QB in last year's class. The guy that would have taken over, former stud recruit Tommy Grady, bailed out following Bomar's ascension last year and is currently battling for Utah's QB job. Barring a big-name transfer or heralded blue-chipper arriving between now and then, either Halzle or Bradford will be the starting quarterback next season. (OU is not currently listed among the favorites of any current top-25 QB prospects, though that may change now.)

Stewart Mandell of SI.com, from 8/2/2006 most of us were suprised by Bradford's ability but Mandell completely disregards Bradford all together in this quote.

Blake Griffin just got pro basketballs death sentence when the Clippers won the lottery. Hopefully, someone, somewhere can trade up. I was hoping he went to Oklahoma City but at this point I just hope he gets out of going to the Clippers any way possible.

Jeff Capel's Next Big Challege: Defeat a Legendary Coach in the Tournament

Andy Katz on Caple

OU's Capel a hot commodity Friday, March 20, 2009 | Print Entry KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A few musings from Day 1 in Kansas City: • Oklahoma athletic director Joe Castiglione is one of the top five athletic directors in the country. He knows he has to get ready for the onslaught of suitors for Jeff Capel, notably from Georgia and Virginia. Capel has a great situation at Oklahoma. But the only issue is that he probably should be in the Big 12's top three or four in salary behind Bill Self (Kansas) and Rick Barnes (Texas), rather than in the middle of the pack. If Virginia and Georgia pursue Capel as expected, then that might nudge him up further. Capel is smart. He knows that Georgia isn't a great basketball job. Virginia has players in the state and is in the ACC, but do you want to be going up against your former coach (Mike Krzyzewski at Duke) or the one of the most dominant recruiters not named John Calipari (Memphis) in Roy Williams (North Carolina)? It's not like Wake Forest, Boston College, Florida State, Clemson, Virginia Tech, Maryland or Georgia Tech are dropping anytime soon, either.
