Oklahoma football notebook: Bob Stoops weighs in on upside-down Hook 'Em Horns

Stoops said, “ ... they don't seem to have a problem with it when they're doing well and they put it in everyone else's face, so when they're not doing so, and someone else does it, you get it the other way.”

True freshmen ends Michael Onuoha and Charles Tapper have played some, along with redshirt freshman tackle Jordan Phillips.

“I just need to learn as much as I can (from the seniors), so the younger guys ... when they get out there I can help them,” Ndulue said. “I can tell them what to do as much as I can. So they can ball like they're supposed to.”

UPDATE ON WILLIAMS, JOHNSON

Oklahoma junior running back Damien Williams and senior offensive tackle Lane Johnson were each severely limited last week at Iowa State, and Stoops said Wednesday they are each improving.

Both starters suffered ankle injuries in the Sooners' Oct. 27 home loss to Notre Dame.

“They practiced more this week,” Stoops said. “Lane has been out there a lot more. He says he feels a lot better.

“Damien, same thing, he's been in more, but you know how it is. With a running back, we'll probably have to wait and see where that goes by Friday. I'm sure it'll be Saturday, warming up, same kind of thing. See how well he feels and how well he can really cut.”

Williams is the Sooners' leading rusher; with his limitations last week, junior Brennan Clay stepped in and rushed for a career-high 157 yards.

Sophomore Tyrus Thompson started in Johnson's place at tackle last week. Johnson played only on special teams during the Sooners' game at Iowa State.
