DT Quincy Russell to go full speed for Sooners

Dodging the heat

Monday was the first day of school at OU, which also meant it was the first day the Sooners had to practice in the middle of the afternoon.

What wasn’t typical Monday was the heat, or lack or it. The high was in the mid 80s, or about seven degrees lower than normal. The previous two years, the start of school was greeted by temperatures over 100 degrees.

“The weather has been pretty kind to us right now, but like I say and keep telling the freshmen, ‘It’s fool’s gold, baby,’” Ikard said. “The heat is coming. Just wait for it.”

Prepping for the opener

Technically, the Sooners are still in preseason camp mode. All work has been geared toward player improvement. Outside of watching some video, attention hasn’t turned to opponents.

Stoops said that will change this week.

“We’ve already looked at them a lot in the summer but we’ll start on the field with them probably Thursday,” he said.
