Boomer Sooner 2010 Season Preview With the departure of DeMarco Murray, the Sooners 2010 hopes rest on the arm of Sam Bradford. Bradford will look to connect with talented redshirt Junior Wide Receiver Ryan Boyles, who he connected with for over 700 yards last season. Bradford will have to learn how to make this offense go without his favorite target, Mackey Award winner, Jermaine Gresham. Also looking to step up in the passing game are wide receivers Jameel Owens and DeJuan Miller, along with tight end James Hanna. Talented reshirt Senior Mossis Madu, who was solid last year when he stepped in for Murray, who finished the season on the sidelines with injuries. Madu will be spelled by redshirt sophomores Jermie Calhoun and Jonathan Miller, who will both also return kicks for the Sooners. On defense, the Sooners lost a few guys, but have plenty of returners and talented players to step in and fill voids. The defense is led by redshirt senior, preseason All-American Gerald McCoy. McCoy will anchor the defense at defensive tackle and make it nearly impossible for opponents to run up the middle. The Sooners have two talented players to control the edge in another preseason All-American, outside linebacker Travis Lewis, as well as defensive end Jeremy Beal. The secondary is led by cornerback Dominique Franks, yet another All-American and redshirt junior safety Desmond Jackson. Franks, Jackson, and returning starting cornerback Jonathan Nelson will help new starter Kevin Brent learn the defense. Finally, junior punter Tress Way, will handle all kicking duties this year for the Sooners who enter the season ranked #1. The Sooners have won 22 of their last 25 games look to bring home a long overdue national championship. The Sooners will be favored in their first 3 games leading up to what should be a Top 10 showdown in Stillwater as Bedlam comes early this year. The week after that, the Sooners will be headed to Austin for the Red River Shootout and look to get revenge for the only blemish on their record last year. A few weeks later, the Sooners will host a tough Colorado team, then travel to Columbia to face the Missouri Tigers and Co-Big XII Coach of the Year, fsuprime in another tough rivalry game. The road is filled with potholes, but the Sooners look up for the challenge.
