*Ian Boyd has a piece up at Football Study Hall on the growing use of dime personnel as a base defense in the Big 12. I have a hard time fully buying into the idea because of how susceptible it is to teams with decent H-backs. The piece touches on OU's shoddiness this year, which Ian attributes to Mike Stoops' insistence on playing a 3-4/4-3 hybrid.
I've gone round and round on this the past few weeks. Frankly, if the secondary could cover consistently, I think a lot of the Sooners' problems would clear up. I have more thoughts, but let's see how the D holds up against the Cowboys.
