Game week is not only upon us it is almost halfway over. Sooner head coach Bob Stoops held his first game week media luncheon on Tuesday and had a lot to say about his 07 Sooner squad and the game Saturday night against North Texas.
Of course we told you earlier in the week about ESNP's Game Day crew picking the Sooners to win the Big 12 again this year and to make an appearance in the BCS Title Game but Coach Stoops says that kind of speculation is earned and not given.
On of the reasons that the Sooners are picked so high this season is that their defense is loaded with talent and experience. Particularly in the secondary where Coach Stoops thinks that they have the potential to be really special.
While the defensive spotlight is on the secondary the offensive spotlight is going to be on the running game. With Chris Brown suspended and Allen Patrick still limping Sooner fans want to know which backs are going to see the field Saturday night and what we should expect.
Stoops also said that he isn't concerned about quarterback Sam Bradford's inexperience either.
We know that North Texas is pretty solid on defense but offensively they are going through some serious changes from seasons past. However, according to Stoops, the Mean Green offensive attack won't be anything that the Sooners haven't seen before.
