Checking in from Sooner country

NORMAN, Okla. -- I'm making another visit today, and apparently I got out of Dallas just in time. Crazy stuff out there.

Anyway, I'm up north saying hello to the Sooners, and I'll get some time with players and coaches today. I'll have more on the blog later this week and in weeks to come.

I'll definitely check in on Mike Stoops' defense, and the new-look Sooners, who should have a solid squad minus the weighty expectations of 2011's "National title or bust" run.

Keep checking the blog soon for plenty of Sooners coverage.
