PODCAST: OU preseason camp producing results
It's been a whirlwind week with fall camp in full swing. But our pain is your gain as we are filled to the brim with what's going on inside OU's preseason practices. There is a different feel in the air about OU's defense now that Alex Grinch has his fingers in every aspect of the defense. Lincoln Riley hasn't named a quarterback yet, but we update on the offensive line and all the skill positions. We're also getting a feel for the starters on defense as well as what newcomers might be able to have an impact this season. It's a fairly serious edition of the Unofficial 40 where we separate the gem from the chaff? Ratings and Reviews is included in this one as well.
