Chuba back
Wallace back
Young DL back and reinforced
Bundage back
Stoner back
Most of OL back with NFL caliber reinforcement
Defense improving for first time in many years
Sanders 2nd year as the man

Schedule has the Horns coming to Stillwater and Sooners may take a slight step back due to many NFL defections.

I think it’s at least fair to expect the first appearance in the Big XII title game.

Gundy is going to crap the bed a couple of times a season, to go along with the annual Bedlam beatdown--it's just the way it is. He might make another title game at some point, but I wouldn't put any money on it.

No. I refuse to talk you down. However, Patron is correct. 1st time we don’t score a touchdown people here will be screaming for Dunn and Gundys heads calling Holder incompetent and saying if we only had Monken we score on every snap.

This program needed a shot of adrenaline and it seems to have gotten it.

Keeping Dunn, Joe Bob and Dickey around gives us the ability to plug and play.

They are, in my opinion, elite coaches, and are as good as we could hope for at their positions.

Having 3 elite position coaches, now Rattay, is big time.

Rattay serms like a great hire.

I'm a little surprised he took a qb coach gig at the college level without play calling duties.

This nexr year has the chance to bust through the door.

1. Gundy is Gundy
2. Gundy will run Chubba into 8 in the box 35 time per game.
3. Gundy was 5-3 with this same team 100% healthy.

summary - Gundy

it doesn’t matter how much talent returns, what matters is what’s done with it.

That work for ya

We have to play ou twice to win anything meaningful. They’ve beaten us 89 times. Come back down yet?

We need to Holgensonize some on Gundy and remove some Pat Jones mentality out off Coach Gundy.

Now now, gundy would run Chuba up the middle into an 11 man front on 3rd and 4 with the big12 champ on the line.
