When 2010 began, the goal of the Oklahoma Sooners was to wipe away every memory from a painful 2009 season. In 2009, the Sooners experienced a plethora of injuries and youthful mistakes, which led to an 8-5 campaign, the worst since Bob Stoops' first year in Norman. However, with plenty of starters returning, as well as a terrific freshman class, things were looking up for the Sooners.
Oklahoma didn't disappoint, finishing the year 12-2 with a conference championship and a BCS victory in the Fiesta Bowl. While it didn't match team expectations of a national championship, it was far from a letdown as the Sooners improved in many areas of their play.
There are many parties responsible for the well-being of a team and program. Great coaching, a great and enthusiastic fanbase, and terrific facilities are all great things, but ultimately it is the players themselves that are responsible for the team's success on the field. Here, we take a look back on 2010, yet another successful season for the Oklahoma Sooners.
