“that's what happens when you change everything; let ESPN come in, turn humble program into arrogant one.”
“Brody is one of the best players to come through here,” said OU center Ben Habern, a team captain. “He loves Oklahoma football. He's a die-hard Sooner. I don't think he meant anything bad about it.”
Eldridge later tweeted he overreacted. His original knee-jerk reaction referred to ESPN's “training camp” series, a behind-the-scenes look at the first three days of OU's fall camp.
“I don't think we got cocky,” said defensive end Frank Alexander. “Everyone is free to say whatever they want to say. I know Brody personally. I know he didn't mean for it to be harmful to us.”
Habern said Eldridge always focused on the task at hand, preparing for an upcoming season during two-a-days, not cameras or media attention.
“They weren't even here that long,” Habern said. “The first few practices of two-a-days are no pads, just getting into the swing of things, getting into the flow. I don't feel it got us off our game. That's me speaking for the offensive line, not the whole team.”
