OU will go into 2013 without its record-setting quarterback, two of its best receivers and several of its best defenders off a defense that was a disaster anyway the second half of the season. The schedule will be unforgiving, as well.
Kenny Stills, Tony Jefferson and Brennan Clay all committed to Oklahoma from the San Diego area. The Cali trio has take over Norman since, on the field and in recruiting.
Brennan Clay was called upon to step up. The running back had a career day in OU's win over Iowa State and finally gave the Sooners a rushing spark.
Last season, the most troubling part of the Sooners' blowout Bedlam loss wasn't the result but what was happening off the field.
The Oklahoma Sooners' Cali trio think it's 'crazy' for them to be blamed for OU's late season struggles.
With leading-rusher Dominique Whaley out for the season, the Sooners are thin at running back and need Roy Finch and Brennan Clay to carry the load.
