NORMAN — Now that Oklahoma has already been through both of its 2012 regular-season bye weeks, the Sooners have nine straight weeks of a brutal Big 12 schedule, starting with Saturday’s game at Texas Tech.
Sooners coach Bob Stoops was asked if he’ll change anything practice-wise because of the long stretch of games — and possible injuries that could result from it.
“Injuries in today’s game are an issue for everybody,” Stoops said. “You get thin real fast, so the more you go good-on-good, you’re always susceptible to get someone banged up.
“If you don’t, you’re worried about making the strides you need to in practice. You have to watch it. You have to get some against each other and you have to keep trying to develop players that haven’t played as much in practice as well.”
