Football is over now for Sooners

January 7, 2012

Well, the football season is finally over for the Oklahoma Sooners.
Thank goodness they beat a very good Iowa team. One thing that still bothers me is the fact that the Sooners' defense, especially the secondary. runs in cycles. The Sooners are either very good or they are very horrid. It looks more and more like the Secondary Coach Willie Martinez is going to be the sacrificial lamb, but I am beginning to listen to my son, Joey, who has questioned the defensive play calling of Brent Venable for at least five years now.
