With so many starters returning, it’s hard to look at a weakness. The secondary probably has the most room for growth, especially at the cornerback position. Berry said that the early games against teams like Baylor really made his CBs gun shy when it came to covering receivers so there has been some coaching shuffle with defensive coordinator Troy Reffett moving from coaching linebackers to the corners so that should help those players understand what is expected of them. With the loss of leading receiver Brent Leonard, most may think that is a weakness but I really see it as a strength because that is the only receiver the Warhawks lost. The position is stacked with some great talent led by seniors Je’Ron Hamm and Tavarese Maye.
5. The chances for an upset in Norman seem slim, but obviously not impossible. What does ULM have to do in order to keep the game close and have a chance to pull off a stunner?
Are they slim? After last year, I wouldn’t put anything past ULM. Several coaches from across the south came out to spring practice and said that the Warhawks are the hardest working and most disciplined team they have seen in practice. I think that goes a long way, as we’ve seen what ULM can do in fourth quarters when other teams are tiring out. In addition to so many starters returning, this team is capable of anything. With the Arkansas upset, followed by losses to Auburn and Baylor by a combined seven points, these players are aiming high for this season and that all starts at Oklahoma.
