    If young is in fact gone, I wish we would go out and get a big time DC like we have the last couple times with OC.

    What did the insider links say?

  • ScKing

    I am at a loss for words as to why Randle would go pro. He is good, but if he is only ranked as the 5th best junior then he isn’t exactly an elite RB. If OSU had a huge year next year he could use all that publicity to maybe creep into the 1st round where all the money is.

    • KC

      He’s gonna make some major cash next year. He did what’s best for Joe Randle.

  • Scott

    he consistently puts up 1,200 yd seasons. that won’t change next year. He’s ready. Good luck Mr Randle.

      Agree. Yards/carry by year: Fr – 5.5, So – 5.8, Jr – 5.2. We know who he is and so do the NFL scouts. Good luck to him.

    I’m actually ready to see what Jeremy Smith can do as the lead back; I’m fairly optimistic. I don’t think he was utilized enough the past year (was he battling injuries?).

  • Scott

    And on that topic – Young is ready as well. This defense doesn’t work. No matter how you spin the statistics. Not that i read any OU blogs but I bet they aren’t spinning stats in Norman trying to justify their defensive performances of late. “We held Johnny to 500 all purpose yards but he normally goes for 550″.
    Good luck Bill and I hope you enjoy your retirement. You’ve earned it with many years in the trenches.

    • Mark

      I think you make a valid point.

      Also I think Randle is ready as well. He’s had 3 consistent years. He’s more likely to get injured next year than he is to get any better numbers. It is definitely the right choice.

    Unless we’re discussing spies or cloak & dagger activities between hostile nations, I’m always leery of “unnamed sources” and “journalists” who rush to cite them. Although in fairness, both the Oklahoman and the Tulsa World stories reported the reporting of the story.
