Ikard on wide receiver Trey Metoyer: “It's one of those things where you look at him on the field and you know he's going to make plays on the football field this year. He's a good, good football player.”

Defensive coordinator Mike Stoops on the Sooners' defensive struggles last year: “We're tired of hearing about what happened a year ago. That's gone forever. I'll be surprised if they don't come back with a vengeance in those games. They take it personally. I hope they do. Again, we're tired of hearing about it. Now it's time to do something about it and we'll work to that place as we go through this season. We're going to get tested plenty of times throughout the course of this 12-game season and a lot is going to ride on how well we play defense.

Metoyer on how good he can be: "Trey Metoyer can be real good. You know me, I want to try to be the best. That's my goal and that's what I go to practice for every day. I feel like can't nobody stop me but me."
