OU football: Which Sooners team will show up in 2014?

by Jason Kersey Published: August 26, 2014

Unlike the 2013 Sooners, though, Oklahoma has only one solid, experienced offensive playmaker in junior receiver Sterling Shepard. Even throughout the quarterback turmoil last year, OU had three strong senior running backs and a solid group of wide receivers.

The Sooner defense in those two losses returns many of its best players, who all have much more experience in Mike Stoops’ scheme that was implemented during the 2013 preseason.

“I think we learned a lot about ourselves, good things and bad things,” Mike Stoops said. “It takes a year to really go through the season and see kinda the strengths, the weaknesses and how people wanna attack the blocking of it. There’s little different angles with teams and different schemes with teams that were implemented each week.”
