Several true freshmen to playCoach Bob Stoops said Friday he expects several true freshmen to play this season. "There's a good number of them that will likely play,” Stoops said. Among the names Stoops rattled off were wide receivers Jameel Owens and Dejuan Miller, offensive linemen Ben Habern and Stephen Good and safety Joseph Ibiloye. "There will be some others, too,” Stoops said. Running backs Justin Johnson and Jermie Calhoun, defensive end R.J. Washington, kicker Tress Way, tight end James Hanna and cornerback Lamar Harris are other freshmen who could play next weekend in the opener against Tennessee-Chattanooga. That's a stark contrast to last year, when quarterback Keith Nichol was the only true freshman to see the field, underscoring the talent and depth of the 2008 recruiting class. •Avoiding Appalachian State: Last year, Football Championship Subdivision school Appalachian State shocked the college football landscape by upsetting Michigan in Ann Arbor. Appalachian State happens to be in the same league as Tennessee-Chattanooga, the Southern Conference. Quarterback Sam Bradford said in spite of those similarities, the team won't be watching any Appalachian State-Michigan film. We know what happened, he said. In terms of successful football programs, the similarities stop between the Mountaineers and the Mocs. Last season, Appalachian State went on to win the Football Championship Subdivision, while Chattanooga finished 2-9 overall. •Two-a-days over: Friday, the Sooners concluded their final two-a-day practice on the rugby fields. Next week, OU will begin its normal game-week preparation, with practices in the afternoon.
