OKLAHOMA SOONERS... 1ST ROW OBSERVATIONS

Posted on: September 11, 2011 2:14 am
 
The first week has come and gone with a few surprises. Lawton Mac teammates J. Harris and D, Whaley had some memorable moments. Whaley looked great!! Looked like a young Chris Johnson to me. First, he runs extremely hard, always leaning forward after contact.. and did I mention his "burstability". 0-90 mph within in seconds..All of this from a guy who was 2nd on the depth chart at RB, for Lawton Mac (behind s-harris, so he played wr) and Langston!!!  I can't imagine either scenario where his pure talent would not have won out. All of the Rb for oklahoma looked good, especially the WALK-ON, from Lawton,Oklahoma. Offense and defense were both pretty vanilla with the seminoles on deck next weekend. The defense extremely fast. The OU DE's should dominate this year..Big Frank and The Hammer will be playing Sundays next year. If the DT play up to par, OU will be in the title game. OU could isolate the blue collar LB or S every single play. #11 and #1 for Tulsa were so overmatched is was empathy of OU not to go 5 wide or 4 wide with RB motioning out of the backfield to create huge one on one mismatches. USF was my lock of the week last week to win in South Bend. FIU is another team to watch this year. Expect them to cover every week but one this year. This week BYU is the dog of the week plus 6 at Texas. My other best bets are Mississippi st, Alabama, SD st and the Houston Cougars at the new home of the mean green UNT. Good luckand good winnings
