What do you think about the players they picked to send to media day? Why not Stills, Jefferson, etc....

I liked the players they brought because I think they are good representatives of the program and intelligent guys. Not that those guys you mentioned aren't, but I think because they are seniors and leaders of their respective units, they were solid choices. Habern leads what is possibly the best unit on the team, Landry is obviously the quarterback and Demontre Hurst is probably going to be one of the top defensive leaders. Those are the guys you want speaking for your team

How do you expect the running game to be this season? Any chance Whaley, Finch, and Clay can step up and take some pressure of the receiving unit?

I think the run game has a chance to really be good this year if Whaley is indeed fully healthy, which it sounds like he probably is. That o-line is really good, and with a guy like Whaley, and Finch and Clay to back him up, that really could help take pressure off Landry and the young receivers

What do you think the RB rotation is going to be?

Whaley, Finch, Clay is what I would say. That is, if Whaley is back to the Whaley that he was. He's been cleared for everything, but Stoops made sure to emphasize that they won't know anything until he gets in pads. Damien Williams, a juco guy, sounds like he could get some looks as well
