Oklahoma football: Barry Switzer talks Sugar Bowl, Bedlam and more

by Jason Kersey Published: December 14, 2013

What did you think of the Bedlam game?

Well, nothing surprises me in that game. The game I saw them play against Baylor, I was impressed with them on both sides of the ball. They looked a little more consistent than we did offensively and defensively, but we made the plays when we had to. Shepard, Saunders and the difference makers. We hung around. When you hang around in the fourth quarter, you've got a helluva chance to win it.

Is it neat for you to see Derrick Shepard's son out there performing as well as he does?

He's a better athlete than his dad. His dad was a good player, but his dad was a walk-on, an overachiever. Sterling possesses more physical talent. That's my opinion. And I think his dad would tell you the same thing.
