    Hopefully this offseason is the lynch pin for the coaching staff to wake the **** up. They have been recruiting two way players for the last 3-4 years but these two way players want to play offense, so the coaches promise to play them there and are too afraid to put them on D in fear of them leaving. MOTHERFUCKING COACHES RUN THE PROGRAM....Dont let the program and plaers run you. Time to get back to years of old. Recruit players that are ready to hit...not soft pansies who want to not get hit. Prima-donnas will lead you down the rabbit hole. STOP. Time for change. This is OKLAHOMA football, not intramurals brother.

    Lets assume all players in both your posts are on the team come August. Then we would have ample quantity at all def. positions except linebacker, where the Maestro switch has really hurt us. They should be panicking at linebacker because what we have clearly isn't good enough.

    More numbers would be great, but if they are not difference makers then what does it matter? Are there anymore out there?

    Ahmad Thomas

    LB (1 player):

    Jordan Evans

    DE (3 players):

    Matt Dimon
    DJ Ward
    Ogbonnia Okoronwu

    DT (2 players):

    Quincy Russell
    Kerrick Huggins (if he qualifies)

    more to come obviously but it sucks that we are in this position

    Oh Jesus titty ****ing thank god. For a second there I was worried. 26 mostly unproven players is much better than 20. Dodged a bullet on that one!!

    I think Danzel was in with Joe Powell and no longer with the team

    Here is a list of people we have a chance with defensively:

    Charles Walker, DT (visiting this weekend)
    D'vante Henry, LB (visiting the 18th, we just offered him)
    Lamar Robbins, DB (hasn't heard from us in a while so I'm not sure what is going on with him but I like him)
    Darius Randall, JUCO DB
    Adrian Baker, DB (50/50 with Clemson and we will know in a little over a week)
    LJ Moore, DB (visiting this weekend)


    Slim chance at:

    Toby Harrison, JUCO DT (prob going to Georgia most likely)
    Keith Bryant, DT (visiting us soon but he likely stays in Florida)
    Tahaan Goodman, DB (visiting this weekend but I'm not very hopeful)

    Wishful thinking:

    Tee Shephard, DB (getting cleared by the NCAA is still an issue and I don't think it happens in our favor)

    Why can't Tee just enroll and start school here and get cleared down the road like Saunders did? When can Henry enroll? I think he's ours...how about Randal?

    thank you, that's what I thought...so mark that number down to 25

    Trey Franks is not someone I trust to contribute
    Cortez Johnson has an impending suspension coming
    Aaron Colvin could still leave
    Kass Everett might be a wasted scholarship (next year is his last year to possibly contribute, remember when we stole him from TT)
    Chaz Nelson had a big injury that wasted his 2012 season, how healthy will he be when he comes back?
    Marquis Anderson didn't play much this season and got in trouble along with grades issues
    Torrea Peterson pretty much same as Marquis Anderson (will he still be with the team next year?)
    Damon Williams (dude likely won't contribute at DT, didn't he move to the offensive side at one point a year ago?)

    There are a lot of question marks with the personnel of those 25 players

    Charles Walker is also a likely commit after he sees campus.

    Tee's NCAA issues are much different than Saunders' problems. Tee isn't eligible to enroll and hasn't been cleared by the NCAA to attend class/practice. He has clearinghouse issues and he has an uphill battle and likely won't be at OU next year.

    Saunders wanted to push a waiver through to play immediately due to circumstances out of his control (father's health and doctor assistance in OK), he was able to attend class immediately and practice with the team but didn't get to play until the 5th game of the season b/c the NCAA didn't accept his waiver til that time

    If the rumors true, I don't like how a school (ND) can keep a kid hostage longer than a year (I get the two year in conference rule). So he can basically only go to a juco or cc?

    The problem is that majority of them have little to no experience.

    Make Kerrick Huggins eligible Alabama style. Pay the right people in high school AND in the NCAA.

    I wonder how many freshmen will play this season? Looks like we could see quite a few

    might have something to do with having us on the schedule next year. those catholics at ND aren't as honorable as they think they are.

    So we have 26 + this years class (probably around 12) = 38

    Is this that far off from normal?

    85 max minus your punters & kickers
