    Throw a Joe Mixon in there and it could be considered that we're gonna lose quite a bit of talent.

    6 or 7 starters in there, aren't there?

    Westbrook is going to be damn hard to replace. Thomas and Evans, good riddance. Wren is solid. Due to injury younger guys are getting reps on the D line. I won't be surprised if Stoops goes after a couple of JUCO guys with experience.

    Wren actually got a year of eligibility back.

    I didn't think Shepard would be easy to replace either. Someone will need to step up

    Walker........gone.

    I don't hate the kid or anything. Being labeled a pussy is enough punishment AFAIAC.

    Guy is trying to protect his career. He might go undrafted.

    I think he'll drop but I don't see him going undrafted. There were no violence issues and after seeing Tunsil fall and turn out to be so good teams will be less reluctant to let little stuff take them off the board.

    The only one that can't be replaced on the entire list is Westbrook. Every other one of them I think we can do better.

    It's been a shit show of losing players this season.

    Do you guise ever think that Bob keeps stuff internally so well that when he needs to make room, he could just open his "Naughty" list and pick a player from random that has either:
    1. Broke the rules
    2. Been dogging it
    3. Just pisses him off

    ...and then give them the ol' heave-ho?

    All of these recent EE's coming in...and apparent bum rush to be recruited in this next class HAS to be a pleasant surprise for StoopsCo?

    With the turmoil of coaching vacancies, we may score some minor upsets and flip some decent recruits.

    I'm curious to see if they go after any JUCO kids, especially at WR and LB.

    I'd certainly hope not and I don't think he does. I might be naive, but Stoops is pretty consistent in the way he handles the players in trouble. He didn't hesitate to heave Bomar and the other guy, off the team just before the season started in 2006. He's made numerous suspensions in the past few years and it seems all were handled in the same manner. He's taken kids from other schools who were kicked off those teams and from what I've read and understand, they've turned out pretty good under Stoops watch. We'll never know for sure, but I don't have a problem with the way he's done things.

    Could be like some coaches in other conferences who will recruit a kid, hard, and at the last moment drop said kid for another recruit or other such shenanigans....
