U40: We're trying really hard to be optimistic about the defense

The gang is all here for another edition of the Choctaw Casino Unofficial 40. We start out discussing Curtis Bolton's first comments since the controversy about halftime and the Cotton Bowl. We're trying really hard to give the defense a chance under Ruffin McNeill. We're giving change a chance even though we don't understand some of the clamoring that out there for certain players to see more time. This is not a team with a lot of quick-twitch pass rushers on the team, so how the hell would...


U40: Can OU's defense be fixed this season?

The whole gang is back and it's time to really dive into what is working and what isn't on defense. We all know there are issues with tackling. We know there are some coverage issues. After studying the game and looking at some key numbers, what issues really stick out? Can the run game be better? Will the offensive line get better now that Creed Humphrey has been named the starter at center? Army comes to town and that's always a delicate situation from a P.R. standpoint. We love our men...

Atlanta and the Rivals 5-Star Challenge is in the mirror and the entire gang is back to breakdown what we saw in Georgia. It was a weird podcast We were pretty much awful people that deserved to be flogged for some of our hypothetical takes on Big 12 Media Days and potential media stereotypes.
