Oklahoma continues to throw Venables under the bus

Yesterday we posted an article out of Oklahoma that basically said that Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables’ defense was too complicated for Oklahoma players last season, and intimated that much of their success this season comes from a less complicated scheme. Today we get an article from NewsOK.com that says Venables often made confusing, last minute calls at Oklahoma.

Washington described waiting before each play for Venables’ call, which always came in late.

“He didn’t want anybody to have any edge on us,” he said, adding that, for the same reason, Stoops’ calls come in late, too, but there’s less for players to remember.

“You’ve got two arm bands (with defensive calls written all over them),” Washington said. “You’d be sitting there like, ‘C’mon man; c’mon.’

“The offensive line’s lining up; they’re already down, and you finally get your call.

“It’s hard to explain. In some ways it’s simplified, but for a lot of us, we’ve been around here for a while, so we know what we’re supposed to be doing.”
