Mack Brown on OU Week

4

Here's the Wednesday presser with MB talking about this week in practice and what the plan is for Dallas on Saturday. Some key takeaways: - So going in this game, like Greg Davis and [OU defensive coordinator] Brent Venables have had 11 game plans against each other. So they have a good idea going in to this week what they’re going to do, but then you have to adjust to your players and who’s playing well and what you’re doing and who’s healthy and the things that you need to do to fix it. Yesterday, you look at some different things that you’ve been planning on. Today, this morning, you throw some of those things out and you go back and practice this afternoon and really work on your game plan and then tomorrow you try to review it and get ready to play. - On WR Mike Davis’ health: He’s questionable for the game, so it would stay like it was Monday - On Gilbert being a mobile quarterback... I think we’re seeing him start to attack the line of scrimmage with his eyes downfield like Colt and like Vince did where he has a chance to throw the ball, where they have to stay back or he can run and pick up the first down if not. I think we’ll see that he’s a strong runner. He’s an effective runner. He will not be just a runner like Colt was some and Vince was a lot, but I also feel like he’ll keep improving in that area. - On what the offense does best: I’d say we throw best, and we are still inconsistent there. But we haven’t had many sacks. Garrett is about 60-something percent [completion rate]. We had nine explosive plays and they only had seven. That’s what we want. We are doing things reasonably well, but it doesn’t look like that right now because we don’t score. We aren’t finishing. - On D.J. Monroe being more comfortable with the offense: The ball security is better. The mesh in the handoffs are better. He is running better routes. He is just much more comfortable. There is no doubt that his size is unique for a running back, but he fits that position much better than he does wide receiver. Also, practice report video from Wednesday.
