Defense fares well in scrimmage
The Sooners held a major scrimmage Thursday before allowing players to leave for spring break following Friday classes. Reports were the defense fared well, although defensive coordinator Mike Stoops said the offense had some success on the ground.
“We’re basically trying to teach fundamentals, teach discipline within our responsibility and play an aggressive style of defense,” Stoops said. “I thought we tackled well for the foremost for the first live scrimmage. That tells me we have good athletes, guys that can play in space.
“We had decent position on the football but I thought they ran the ball better on us (Thursday) than they have all spring. That’s a concern we have to look and see where we were losing leverage. They had a couple of big runs.
“But I don’t think we gave up any big throws. A goal of ours all training camp has been to have better position on the football. We gave up way too many deep balls a year ago. That’s what we’re really conscious of.”
