Sooner recruit honored by SIMarshall Musil, a three-star fullback/linebacker who committed to OU over the summer, was listed in Sports Illustrated's "Faces in the Crowd” this week. Musil, of LaCrosse, Kan., had two touchdown runs, a point after, eight tackles, a sack and two punts in LaCrosse High School's 27-0 victory over Trinity. Last year, Musil rushed for 745 yards and caught 13 passes for 283 yards, compiling 16 total touchdowns. He's already been an all-state selection twice. •Line playing well: OU has gotten exceptional play from its offensive line all season, and last weekend on the road at Washington was no different. Coach Bob Stoops credited the flow of the offense in large part to center Jon Cooper, who has several responsibilities in calling out blocking schemes in the no-huddle offense. "He graded out high,” Stoops said. "He had very few misses mentally. Coop is managing that whole no-huddle with Sam (Bradford). Don't think we had a false start all night. There was pretty good noise.” •Bradford's brace a precaution: During the Washington game, Bradford was spotted wearing a large brace on his left knee. Offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson said the brace is just a precaution. "Quarterbacks out there sometimes, it just happened to Tom Brady, you get in that throwing position and the leg is exposed and guys are flying at you,” Wilson said. "That front leg is stuck out where guys can fall into it. We tell the big guys to move their feet so they don't get stuck in the ground. But QBs can get stuck in the ground and you can get an ankle or a knee deal. So that's just a preventative thing.” By John Helsley and Jake Trotter
