It hasn't been the best couple of days for Oklahoma fans.
Following Friday night's 41-13 loss to Texas A&M in the Cotton Bowl, it was reported by ESPN's Joe Schad on Sunday morning that wide receiver Kenny Stills and safety Tony Jefferson would both be leaving school early to enter the NFL Draft.
Stills was Oklahoma's leading receiver, catching 82 passes for 959 yards and 11 touchdowns. In his three years with the Sooners, Stills had 204 receptions for 2,594 yards and 24 touchdowns, though 2012 was his first season as Landry Jones' top target. With both Stills and Jones leaving school, that's a lot of offense Oklahoma will need to replace in 2013.
Then there's Jefferson, who finished the season with 119 tackles, 3 1/2 for a loss, two interceptions and three passes defended. He was a key contributor to a defense that was one of the best units in the Big 12 the last few seasons.
