On how soon to expect the OU men's basketball team to turnaround:
There's a chance next year's team could be slightly better, but it won't be an NCAA Tournament team.
On whether UCO coach Terry Evans has a chance to become OU's next basketball coach:
Very little, but he has a shot I suppose. Buzz Williams is the name I keep hearing, and I have to believe he is the favorite to land the job at the moment.
On players to watch for OU when spring practice starts next week:
Brandon Williams at RB; Gabe Lynn at CB; Daryl Williams at LT; Those are three players to watch.
On the battle to backup quarterback Landry Jones:
The ceiling is higher for [Blake] Bell, but [Drew] Allen has been in the offense two years now and looked pretty good is spot duty last season. I give the edge to Allen right now.
