NORMAN — Big 12 Football Media Day's begin Monday in Dallas with each school meeting the press to discuss the upcoming season. Last week the preseason rankings and all conference teams were released.Oklahoma was the pick to win the conference and they had four on the all conference team with two of those, linebacker Eric Striker and cornerback Zack Sanchez, being defensive players. That's not a surprise to Sooner defensive coordinator Mike Stoops, who feels his Sooner defense will be pretty good and deep.
"This is probably the deepest we've been since I've been back defensively with quality players across the board," said Stoops.. "We're going to go two deep with a bunch of guys trying to get on the field. It makes us better the competition everyday . The competition is what drives your program There's four or five players coming in that are going to push our upperclassmen."
Defensive end's Charles Tapper and Geneo Grissom are two other OU defenders poised to have a big season.
