Before the Sooners' 31-14 win over Iowa in the Insight Bowl, Jake Trotter and Brandon Chatmon analyzed each Oklahoma position group. Now, the SoonerNation staff is giving each position a grade for its performance in 2011.

Grade: B+
No group experienced as much turmoil over the course of the season as the running backs did. Jonathon Miller and Jermie Calhoun transferred early in the year, Brennan Clay was hampered by injuries most of the season, and starter Dominique Whaley suffered a season-ending ankle injury. Still, this was a unit that managed to perform to expectations as a whole. Whaley was spectacular the first half of the season, then Roy Finch carried the load late. The grade probably would have been lower had it not been for all-conference fullback Trey Millard and Belldozer specialist Aaron Ripkowski, who were both solid all season.
