Fogle’s Final Spring Football Thoughts

Fogle’s Final Spring Football Thoughts

Can we throw the hay in the barn at this point for the OU football team?

I took time to reflect on what I saw in the spring game. I didn’t want to be to quick to judge in either a good or a bad way, I just wanted to be fair.

Let us get the usual supspect, no pun intended, out of the way. Baker Mayfield is in the barn. You know what you’re going to get out of him. He will compete almost to a flaw because there is nothing he believes he cannot do on a football field.

The defensive line will be good, really good. They do need to establish quality depth, because as fast as teams move in the conference you will need at least 8 guys running a 4 man front.
The offensive line has a chance to be one of the best in the country. I know, that’s a lofty expectation, however, they do have that potential.

For most coaches that alone is a recipe for success. However, at every other position you have question marks.

Who will be the 3 linebackers?

How do you replace a safety and a corner?

Imagine this, when was the last time you wondered who would be the featured running back?
I’m not doom and gloom by any means. I believe in this staff and know that they will do their best to figure things out as they move forward. This will be a very interesting season in many ways, and I can’t wait.
