Head coach Lincoln Riley and his young QB rolled out of town at the end of the 2021 season. They took their talents to Los Angeles and left the good fans of Norman Oklahoma dangling in the wind. So, what’s left on this team that has been so dominant?
The Sooners were 7-2 in the Big 12 and 11-22 overall in 2021. New head coach Brent Venables is blowing into town from Clemson University where is helped coach the Tigers to two national titles. Enough players remain at Oklahoma to where the Sooners are ranked #8 in the pre-season top 25.
The offense and defense are both loaded with upperclassmen. Most importantly, the vacant QB position was quickly filled by a seasoned college vet. UCF QB Dillon Gabriel transferred to Norman and brings with him 70 passing TD’s and only 14 INT’s.
Veteran WR’s and running backs are back and really, things look positive for the Sooners.
Eric Gray brings his 1700+ rushing yards and 5 TD’s into his senior year.
