Can You Tackle This Man?
That is the question asked by Burnt Orange Nation. The man is none other than Oklahoma running back Adrian Peterson, and from the looks of it, he has been locked in the Sooners' weight room for some time. The kid is as tough as they come and he fought through last season with a bum ankle and a myriad of other bumps and bruises. He was even a load to tackle then, but we can't imagine trying to wrestle a healthy Peterson to the turf in 2006. No wonder the Sooners were picked to win the Big 12 South over national champion Texas. Oklahoma's schedule is favorable, with potential potholes Sept. 16 at Oregon and, of course, Oct. 7 against Texas at the Cotton Bowl. Get through that and it could be clear sailing to the BCS title game, which Burnt Orange Nation also points out has been a regular stop for teams from the Big 12 Conference.
