So certain, Venables must be right
Coming out of spring, Sooner coach sounded quite sure about his next defense
Maybe clip this one out, put it on the refrigerator and see if Brent Venables winds up being right.
Because following the spring game, asked about Oklahoma’s ability to showcase defensive playmakers next season, the Sooner head coach said a whole lot quickly.
“I see it at all three levels,” Venables began. “The potential for playmakers at all three levels, really across the board. Inside and outside, up front and at linebacker.
“Justin and Dasan, amongst others, as cheetahs — and I know Justin moves around, Dasan moves around as well; didn’t see a lot of it today — but those two guys are playmaking dudes.”
It was one of those rare moments a coach tells you exactly what he thinks with all tangible enthusiasm.
