2012 Sooner Kickoff Spotlights The Return Of Mike Stoops

I have greatly enjoyed hearing from those of you who have purchased the 2012 Sooner Kickoff. Its my first year in doing the publication on my own and while I readily admit that its not perfect it has been a fun project and I take pride in knowing that readers are enjoying it.

There's no doubt that the defense has been retooled since last fall. Part of it was done out of necessity after players being out of position cost the Sooners more than once. Another reason for the retool was the departure of longtime Bob Stoops assistant Brent Venables and the return of folk hero Mike Stoops. The payoff could provide dividends in mass if Stoops can return the fire and passion to the Oklahoma defense that was there from 1999-2003.

Here's a sneak peek of the article.
