Switzer still raves about the Boz
Barry Switzer was on an Atlanta radio station the other day and was his usual entertaining self. He said a lot of interesting stuff, about both the Sooners and his NFL days.
But maybe the most telling subject was on Brian Bosworth and how great a college player he was. The Boz has been gone from the college scene 23 years. It’s easy to remember his shennanigans, but is his linebacking remembered so easily?
Bosworth was a dominant defensive player. I would say in the last 30 years, the best OU defensive players are Tony Casillas, Roy Williams and Bosworth, and while I would probably rank them Williams, Casillas, Boz, you couldn’t go wrong with any order.
Bosworth was a college Ray Lewis, a guy who seemed to impose his will not just on opposing offenses, but his defensive teammates. Switzer tells the story of receiving a call from Bobby Bowden, who caught highlights of Bosworth and couldn’t get over how great a player was the OU linebacker.
Anyway, the interview is worth listening to. Here’s the link to listen to the interview: http://sportsradiointerviews.com/2009/07/06/checking-in-with-barry-switzer/
