Commentary: One more shot at redemption for Stoops, defense



Of course, it helps to have Roy Williams out there wreaking havoc and the Sooners are still waiting on the next Roy Williams.

Earlier this week, OU defensive end David King said the waiting was “the worst part.”

Not anymore.

Tonight, two good teams meet. Both have won 10 games and five straight. Both are known for offense. Both have played some reasonably strong defense, yet nowhere close to all the time.

Victory will be enough for the Sooner Nation, but victory does not equal redemption.

What can Mike Stoops and his defense come up with? Finding out ought to be fun.
