Spring football is over at OU. Up next: the SEC. The Sooners’ first season in the SEC beckons, so after the Red-White Game, do they look ready for the SEC? Some position groups do. Others? Not so much. We dive into all that and much more on The Jenni & Berry Show.

Episode highlights:

1:15: Is Deion Burks the best thing going for the Sooners?

3:15: Is Burks potentially the biggest home-run threat at OU since CeeDee Lamb or Hollywood Brown?

5:05: Is Jackson Arnold going to have time to get the ball to Burks and other receivers?

7:10: Is it worrisome or reassuring that OU is pulling linemen out of the spring transfer portal?

8:15: Is there a flip side to the offensive line’s not-so-great pass blocking in the spring game?

9:05: Is there reason to feel better about the defensive line?

11:00: Will the young defensive linemen help this fall?

12:55: What is Jackson Arnold going to be this fall? 

16:25: What did the spring game tell us about OU’s new coordinators?

18:45: Are the Sooners going to be any better at kicker in the fall?

21:35: How deep is the tailback position?

24:25: Can the guys playing behind the defensive line be a big strength in the fall?
