Dave and Rives were back at practice this week. Though the viewing portion of practice is over for the season, interviews with players and staff is still taking place.
We were able to speak with 5th year senior running back Marcus Major yesterday. Major is extremely motivated heading into the season, specifically to stay healthy. When given the opportunity, he has made the most of his carries throughout his career.
We also spoke to a few of the Sooners big boys. Savion Byrd has been a popular name around Norman ever since his stellar Cheez-it bowl performance. Byrd looks to be a consistent starter for OU on the line this season.
Byrd had high praises for the defense as well. He described them as “savages” and said the offensive lineman have a great deal of respect for OL Coach Bill Bedenbaugh. Reggie Grimes described it as a “mutual respect” between the lineman units at OU.
Dave and I broke everything down in detail on youtube, which can be viewed here.
