Baker Mayfield, Steven Parker and Coach Stoops are getting back to the nitty gritty this week, as players are ready to get back into football. Mayfield said he thinks bye weeks are good, but he had hoped for one later in the season. Regardless, Mayfield said he knows the lineman like a week off and ready to get back into it. Parker said the bye week came at a good time because the team was able to get their feet wet, before diving into nine conference games.
Coach Stoops commented that last Monday through Thursday was good preparation for West Virginia and extra time has been good for improvements in other aspects of the game.
