A Look At The 2009 Oklahoma Sooners: Special Teams

Football News - Tim Bond

In every season under Bob Stoops, but one, the Oklahoma Sooners have been one of the top 20 programs in special teams play.

In 2008 however, the special teams weren't so “special.”

Football News - Tim Bond

2009 could be a very magical season for Oklahoma. They will be vying for yet another Big 12 and National Championship.

After 2008 was complete there were questions on which underclassmen was going to leave early and which would stay.

However, in 2009, there are still some questions that need to be answered before they can make that run. Following the 2009 annual Spring Crimson/Cream game, Oklahoma still has a few questions, but has a better gauge of their future team. And it is very promising to say the least.

Without further ado, I present to you the's 2009 Sooner Preview.
