Is the talent level down at OU? Do you think that the rise of OSU football has hurt the recruiting at OU?
I'm not sure the talent level is down, but the depth clearly isn't as good as it has been. You see it at several different positions. Offensive line. Safety. The deeper you go on the roster, there seems to be a bigger talent drop off than there used to do. So, I'm not sure the starters now are any less talented than teams of the past, but the depth sure doesn't seem to be there.
