Senior running back DeMarco Murray has received plenty of preseason pub. Murray was voted a preseason All-American by Phil Steele Magazine.
In his first season as the team's primary ball-carrier, Murray has set a goal for himself to rush for 1,500 yards, which would be a career high.
"I don't think that's enough," Stoops said. "I'd sure like to see him at 1,900. Not like we haven't done it. Adrian (Peterson) and Quinton Griffin both were over 1,900. We'll see. Hopefully he can do something like that."
TULSA, Okla. (AP)—Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops believes the Sooners will end up in a good position no matter what happens with schools switching conferences.
Stoops said Tuesday night he thinks Oklahoma would "be pretty attractive" to any conference, considering its TV appeal, a run of appearances in the Bowl Championship Series and a streak of sellouts at its 85,000-seat stadium.
Stoops also believes the Big 12 could add new teams if needed "or if not, we may end up going somewhere else."
Regardless, Stoops says he’ll leave it up to university president David Boren and athletic director Joe Castiglione to decide what’s best for Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma Sooners will begin their quest for their eighth national title on September 5th. Season tickets have been renewed at a 99% clip in Norman. Expectations are high, can the Sooners fulfill them?
