Granger Arrested Won't Play

The Oklahoma defense is taking another hit as defensive tackle DeMarcus Granger is being sent home following his arrest in Tempe.

Granger walked into a Burlington Coat Factory at the Arizona Mills Mall in Tempe and attempted to steal a jacket.

"Mr. Granger removed an anti-theft device from a jacket and then concealed the jacket in a bag. He exited the store walking past the cash registers without paying for the jacket," Mike Horn, a spokesman for the Tempe Police Department, said in a statement.

Obviously this is a huge blow to Oklahoma's defensive line. I've said before that against a team like West Virginia you waould rather lose players from the secondary than the defensive line or linebackers. Now the Sooners have lost three players for their defense. One to injury and two to stupidity and must find a way to move on and shut down the Mountaineers' rushing attack.

"We just go with the other guys. Gerald McCoy, Steven Coleman, Cory Bennett, those guys have all been solid. Adrian Taylor will get more snaps," Stoops said. "All of those guys have played through the season for us, so it doesn't change anything we're doing."
