I think it's the biggest part of it. I believe Big XII coaches are resigned to a belief system that whomever has the best QB and WR's wins the conference. That's all OU is about these days. Same with Baylor, OSU, Tech, formerly Misouri, WVU, and formerly A&M. The BIG XII has been all about QB's and WR's for the last 7-8 years and that's what they invest most of their recruiting capital in. Jamarcus McFarland and Granger were both the #1 DT in the nation when they were recruited here and McGee was the #1 DT in the state of OK. It's not that long ago that we brought those kids in, whether they panned out or didn't doesn't matter. Everybody was recruiting them and it's not that long ago. We've stopped prioritizing defensive players along the way over the last 3-4 years and it shows on the field with Big XII teams because they favor flashy QB's and WR's. Perception is reality.END OF QUOTE.
Seems like our really good D Tackles are sorta wasted against the offenses we face.. If they are great pass rushers they contribute but run stoppers not so much.. We do need to change our offense IMO. AND, Our recruiting should be more defense oriented.
