    What's also interesting is the only recruit Jackie Shipp was involved in recruiting was in a co-recruiting capacity with Jay Norvell in lead on Sterling Shepard. Other than that, Shipp didn't recruit a soul in 2012. Not one single player.

    Stoops played it smart, he kept firing all his friends/coaches as late as he could and now with new ones OU going 7-5 next couple of years will be seen as rebuilding.

    Another $12,000,000.

    Just the 3 DTs, however.
    I sure hope Trip Franks can run backwards better than he can forwards.

    There are lots of reasons that guys wash out. I don't think it is always academic failure but it is frustrating to put time and effort into getting guys on campus and have them flunk out. Especially if they are going to be contributors.

    However, every time one of these guys leaves a little voice in the back of my head sez............"One more schollie for next year."

    Ugh not sure why I am bothering to comment on here but all things being equal I really think Simon is a player that we will all wish had figured things out in time to stay here and play for us

    If we hire the best coaches they are going to have the skills nessasasary to identify, evaluate, sign and develop players at higher than business as usual rate. It’s pretty obvious that the coaches who are no longer here had difficulty in getting enough of the right players to OU.

    A difficult dilemma indeed. We need the players to get back and we can't get back without the players. I think we can all agree we are not even in the running for the elite line players and that is a little bit of a problem.

    Using your numbers, if OU switches to the 3-4.
    Then in the spring that is 3 DT vying for 1 spot, 15 DEs vying for 2 DE spots plus 2 OLB spots. Shannon and Nelson at ILBs?

    Interesting way to look at it. We'll need the DE beefed up to the 260 range, but you may be on to something here if we switch to the 3-4 as you suggest.

    Why is it that every time I click on a link to Bevo I laugh my ass off because the Texas fans have a sense of humor but most on this board seem like complete asshats?

    Maybe it's because they've lost all hope.
