College Football Preseason Rankings: Is Lewis Injury Deja Vu for Oklahoma?
With the loss of Oklahoma’s leading tackler, Travis Lewis, is this the sign of things to come in Norman?
Take a look back at the last time Oklahoma had this much hype heading into the season. It was 2009 and the Sooners were coming off a BCS bowl game and a Heisman Trophy winning season for Sam Bradford. They had possibly the best running back/ wide receiver tandem that year as well.
But the injury bug hit the Sooners in week one as Bradford broke his collar bone. He tried to come back early but re-broke the bone against Texas.
Is this the same fate that ’11 Sooners will face? Is the injury to Lewis, their defensive leader, this year’s Sam Bradford?
Should they be keeping current quarterback Landry Jones in a bubble wrap suit at all times?
Okay that last one was a bit much, but the Sooners can come back from an injury to Lewis. However, an injury to Jones could ruin a season, much like the injury to Bradford.
