Certainly there's some concern there after a promising start. I still think this is an improved team, but they're a work in progress and things are going to get tough here in the next few weeks with Ohio and then jumping into the Big 12 schedule early in January.

What are the chances Laquon Treadwell winds up at OU?

OU has to feel pretty good about their chances right now. He's narrowed his list to OU, OSU and Ole Miss and made a comment about wearing No. 1 next year (It's available at OU, it's not at OSU). He seemed to love his visit to Norman and has some family ties to the area (though he also has some family ties to OSU from my understanding). He'd be a nice add to the class, of course, as the top wide receiver in the country, but he's not a must-have for a team with a solid group of WRs coming in on the heels of last year's class.

Any word on Saunders yet?

No, Bob Stoops said Jalen Saunders' Cotton Bowl status hadn't been determined yet. He's issued one-game suspensions in the past for arrests, but said he'll decide what to do about Saunders soon and let everyone know.
