Oklahoma football legend Brian Bosworth is clearly excited about the future of the Sooner program under new head coach Brent Venables.

Oklahoma hosted its annual spring game on Saturday, and a record 75,360 fans packed Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium to catch the intrasquad showcase. Add in Baker Mayfield's statue unveiling and former OU coach Barry Switzer announcing a new NIL collective and it was definitely a good weekend for the Sooners.

The program needed all this positive energy after an offseason spent moving on from former head coach Lincoln Riley, now at US. Venables is running the show in Norman now, and Bosworth, for one, is impressed.

"Word on the street there is a battle brewing. OUr leadership is strong now," Bosworth wrote on Twitter. "The Sooner Nation has your back ⁦

A program of Oklahoma's statute losing its head coach to a perceived "better" job definitely stings, and we would be surprised if Riley isn't successful at USC. However, that doesn't mean the Sooners are a lost cause.

Oklahoma is coming off an 11-2 season and has registered 10 or more wins in 18 of the last 22 campaigns. There's no guarantee Venables is successful, but he's taking over a very healthy operation.

There's no reason to think he won't be able to continue OU's winning ways.
