Tim Kish, the fired LB coach from Arizona will follow BGB's brother Mike to the Sooners as their LB Coach. The good news: he has no ties to Texas or recruiting here. The bad news: he does have good recruiting ties to California. I am happy with this trade off.
Sooner fans are not happy to have another 60 y.o. white guy on the staff trying to recruit 17 year old kids to Norman, OK. BGB is hiring family and friends instead of hiring the best available coach for the job. Comparing Mack Brown's hires last year to the BGB hires this year I am glad that In Mack We Trust.
OU took 1 MLB and 1 OLB last year (2011) and they have 0 MLB and only 1 OLB commit for 2012 as of now. None of these 2011 and 2012 commits are elite talent. While I won't be surprised to see OU go to the JUCO well, for now the state of turmoil at OU on defense together with our stable of 5 star RBs has me very excited to finally flip the power of good over evil in Dallas in the near future.
