The Boz is a big fan of the direction Brent Venables is taking the Oklahoma Sooners on the defensive side of the ball.
Brian Bosworth, the two-time Butkus Award winning linebacker and member of the 1985 national champion Sooners, has always had a lot to say, and he had nothing but good things to say about OU’s new head coach.
They Are swarming. I have not seen that in an Oklahoma football game since Brent Venables was the defensive coordinator back in the early 2000s. It just makes me giggle because I just love it. – Brian Bosworth
While it’s difficult to picture Bosworth openly giggling at anything, that’s just how much fun this new and improved Oklahoma defense is.
Last week, Bosworth made an appearance on Fox’s Big Noon Kickoff where he, of course, trolled Nebraska fans.
When asked what he remembers about coming to Lincoln in his playing days, Bosworth gave a simple answer.
The Huskers fans in the background gave a hearty “go big red” chant in the background along with a “we want Urban” chant during Bosworth’s segment.
During Lincoln Riley’s tenure as Oklahoma’s head coach, OU became known more for their offense as opposed to the punishing defenses of the past, particularly the ones that Bosworth was a part of.
For alumni like Bosworth to speak so positively of the direction the program is going so soon into Venables’ tenure is a testament to how well-respected Venables is along with the–so far–good results on the field.
