Practice five of OU's fall football camp is now officially over.
Among the numerous changes for Sooner football this off season was Bob Stoops' bringing in Lincoln Riley from East Carolina to install the air raid offense.
The same offense stoops initially ran when he came to Norman back in 1999.
With it being a whole new look for OU football, I decided to ask the Sooners to tell you what to expect when they take the field this fall.
“It's exciting, Baker Mayfield, OU junior quarterback, said. “There's a lot of explosive plays that are going to happen. We'll score a touchdown at any point. That's just how the offense is built."
You can call a play that's meant for three, four yards and it can pop into a touchdown. It's exciting. It's fast paced. I mean, we're going to get the tempo going. We'll be rolling pretty quickly.”
“It's kind of hard to explain, Sterling Shepard, OU senior receiver, said. “It's definitely exciting. They'll enjoy it, that's all I got to say. We love to throw the ball in this offense, and we love to get the ball to our running backs, as well, so it's an even playing field. It's just exciting.”
“A lot of guys just making big plays all over the field, from running back, to receiver to even quarterback,” Durron Neal, OU senior receiver, said. “It's just going to be explosive, fun, fast paced offense.”
“This offense, I think, will utilize every person in every way possible,” Jeffrey Mead, OU sophomore receiver, said. “Everyone can be utilized in this offense for different things, so they're going to see a lot of people specialize in a lot of different things and be successful in a lot of different things.”
