Oklahoma football: Secondary facing questions

By Jason KerseyNORMAN — Oklahoma’s secondary is the defensive unit facing the most questions and uncertainty entering 2014. The Sooners lost cornerback Aaron Colvin and free safety Gabe Lynn off last year’s team, leaving glaring holes in two key positions on the Oklahoma defense. OU coaches have moved a seasoned veteran into one of those spots, though, allowing senior Julian Wilson to finally play the position he was recruited to play. Wilson was a standout cornerback at Southmoore High, but has played nickelback and dimeback throughout his career — until now. “I played boundary...

Oklahoma football: Defensive front looks to be dominant again

By Ryan Aber, Staff WriterNORMAN — Bob Stoops likes to bring it up often now, pointing out what little outsiders thought about his defensive line last season as Oklahoma switched into a three-man front. But last year, Mike Stoops and the rest of OU’s defensive coaches had concerns about how the defensive line would come together. The line, though, wound up being one of the strengths of the Sooners’ defense. Charles Tapper turned into one of the top defensive ends in the league as a sophomore, Jordan Phillips was a dominant force inside until his season ended due to injury and Geneo...

Built in the Earl Campbell mold of a workhorse running back, he has gone on to a storied NFL career featuring six Pro Bowls and an MVP season. Thanks largely to his style, there’s little debate against “All Day” being the best running back in the league.Read more on NewsOK.com

Oklahoma football: Dorial Green-Beckham learning a lot

BY RYAN ABERNORMAN — Dorial Green-Beckham came to Norman looking like the complete wide receiver.
