The Norman Transcript

With school beginning on Monday, training camp is over for Oklahoma. It now settles into what will be its normal season-long practice routine and starts working on opponents instead of banging away at each other.

Mike Stoops admitted on Friday that the end of training camp can't come soon enough for him.

"We get tired of seeing the same plays," he said. "I think we had 19 practices in 14 or 15 days. It gets redundant after a point. I think it gets somewhat counter productive. You're still working on techniques and disciplines of what you're trying to do. That's really all you get toward the end of it."
