Triple option: Whaley brings optimism 

March, 26, 2012
Every weekday morning, a member of the SoonerNation gives his take on three things happening in the Sooner sports world.

1. Perhaps the best news of the spring so far has been the progress Dominique Whaley has made from a broken ankle. Much was made of the Ryan Broyles injury, but Whaley's absence had a significant impact on the OU offense sputtering down the stretch. Go watch his run against Texas on YouTube and you'll see why.

2. It will be interesting to see what Cale Gundy does with the OU backfield should Whaley return 100 percent. The offense will have a glut of running baks again with Whaley, Roy Finch, Brennan Clay and junior-college transfer Damien Williams. But as last year proved, you can never have too many running backs.
