Sooner4OU Commentary: In this post by Travis Haney on his ESPN.com Blog, he discusses in summary the many changes that OU and Texas are making to adjust for the Read-Option (Think Johnny Manzeil) and the SEC's continued dominance of the National Championship position. It was obvious and the two fan bases were literally up in arms over the lack of meaningful change by both coaching staffs. While their issues may be slightly different, the need to adjust to some of the popular schemes that are driving the high flying offenses of some of the elite teams like Oregon, Alabama and Texas A&M was apparent.
Now, both teams have made changes to their respective coaching staffs, modified their schemes and are drilling their players to execute against these changes and become highly competent quickly, as the two fan bases are restless. Although, the Texas folks have a steeper hill to climb given their record and struggles over the last three years.
Both, OU and Texas' upcoming spring games are going to be televised on Fox SouthWest and Longhorn network respectively. So, it will be interesting to see how these changes take hold and whether they will allow either the Sooners or Longhorns back to the "Elite" level this season or next.
