Sorry that I haven't visited you all yet this season, but Eric Bailey caught up with Coach Coale to talk about the start of the season, so wanted to share:

How much does four games (one exhibition, three regular-season games) of film help the Sooners?

“It's monumental. It's one thing to show practice film. It's another thing to show the principles that we've been teaching from day one. Let me show a clip. What principles did we fail to adhere to on this possession? Oh, so maybe that was us and not them. Maybe we did have more control over this than we thought. Maybe life didn't just happen to us. Maybe we played a role in that and so getting them to connect those dots is really important in the film study.”

How much is new assistant coach Jackie Stiles helping the team’s defense?

“Jackie is a bulldog toward whatever it is she's doing. She gets obsessed – with her work ethic as a player scoring as a Division 1 player – and her job with defense so she's watching it every day after practice. She's going through every rep of film and she's finding all the little crevices and honing in on them. And I think that's just an attribute of her as an individual. That's who she is and that's what she brings.”
Happy to share Tulsa World's best OU articles/galleries/etc. Please e-mail questions for reporters to
