Let's be honest and not sugar coat anything. The Sooners struggled in the running game in 2010 and will enter 2011 without their super star four-year starter in DeMarco Murray. That's not to say there's a void of talent at the running back position, because there's plenty there, but proven talent is scarce.
A new offensive philosophy behind new offensive coordinators Josh Heupel and Jay Norvell is the first step to improvement, a deeper and more experienced offensive line is the second step but the main factor in trying to improve on Oklahoma's 3.4 yard per carry average from 2010 will be the new backs fighting for playing time.
