Here’s what the conference’s coaches are saying anonymously about Oklahoma.
What do Big 12 coaches really think about Oklahoma’s football program heading into the 2017 season?
Athlon Sports has the answers.
The sports site spoke to various coaches across the conference, who gave anonymous opinions about the Sooners.
Here are some of the best ones:
“I don’t see a whole lot of changes with that group."
"Obviously they’re a team that has a chance to get into the Playoff if they win the games they’re supposed to win. They’ve got a big game at Ohio State early, so we’ll see how they come out of that. Even if they don’t win, it makes them better for the conference run."
"I think they’re definitely the team to beat. They have most of their O-line coming back plus even one of the guys who got hurt last year, so they’ll be good up front, and the quarterback is a known commodity. (Baker Mayfield) just makes plays."
About what you’d expect. The Sooners are going to be very, very good this season, and it'll be interesting to see how they fare in their matchup versus the Buckeyes.
