But we don’t think it will work, despite what the Associated Press says here.
Even though Adrian Peterson ran for 1,925 yards last year, this is still an offense that centers around the quarterback. People are too quick to downgrade Jason White and the kind of player he was. Simply put, he was a great college player. Without him, OU becomes very one-dimensional, unless Rhett Bomar or Paul Thompson can step it up.
But the Sooners lost more than anyone last year in the NFL draft, so there are holes to fill all around. To our eyes, at least three losses appear to be in store for OU.
