Stoops remembered trying to find new ways to defend Osborne's offense when the OU coach was an assistant at Kansas State in the early 1990s.
“Where our whole defensive structure and success came from and the way we structured it through our formative years at Kansas State was because of defending them,” Stoops said. “We were constantly tinkering, working, figuring out ways to go against them because they were so complex, so good, so multiple.”
KING: K-STATE WAS WAKE-UP CALL
Senior defensive end David King said he would've preferred avoiding a wake-up call like Oklahoma got with last weekend's loss to Kansas State, but that he hopes the Sooners use it to move forward.
“You never want to have a wake-up call,” King said. “You want to be able to play consistently all the way through.
“When someone slaps you or punches you in the face ... They punched us in the face this weekend. Hopefully the guys around here will use that as a wake-up call and rally around it, get this season back on the right track.”
