The Oklahoma Sooners offseason is just around the corner and there will be plenty of storylines to watch for after they finish their season at the Cotton Bowl on Jan. 4.
The Sooners are completing their 14th season under Bob Stoops who is now 149-36 at the school. Stoops has led his program to Big 12 and national championship games, but knows that his job never stops.
The offseason is where it all starts.
Recruiting, practice, spring games and more recruiting.
Stoops will have plenty to do this offseason after his program failed to make the BCS in 2012. He loses his starting quarterback, most of his defensive line and has room to make up on the recruiting front.
There is nearly a month until Oklahoma plays Texas A&M and Stoops still has a heavy agenda for the 2013 offseason. He has to balance his team's practice schedule while concentrating on his offseason plans.
Here are five storylines to watch for as the Sooners head into the 2013 offseason.
