Before the season began, I wrote an article naming six players who, judged on past performance and a gut feeling, would have breakout seasons for the Oklahoma Sooners. They were either underclassmen who had been stuck behind a superior senior or an underachiever destined to right the ship.
To put it simply, I was hit and miss. I hit on Lane Johnson and Demontre Hurst, pushed on Corey Nelson and Trey Millard and absolutely flopped on R.J. Washington and Austin Haywood. Hey, four out of six isn't bad, right?
Enough semi-tooting my own horn. Here is a similar list, made with hindsight instead of hunch, of six Sooners that have outperformed their expectations this season.
