Sooners show no fear of Tide



The Sooners are adrenalized by the opportunity in front of them. They know they play for a program that once stuck the same type of fear — if not in opponents’ hearts and minds — at least with their fans. It’s something that says why bother showing up because there’s no chance of winning. Many fan bases used to feel that way when the Sooners came to town. They’ve lost just enough over the last five years — especially in bowl games — to stamp out that initial reaction to seeing the Sooners on the schedule.

Beat Alabama and it starts to creep back. It’s the biggest reason no one is unnerved about this matchup.

“I’m excited and my blood is boiling because I’m ready to get after it,” Ndulue said. “They’re gonna come out with their best shot and hit us right in the mouth and we’re going to retaliate and vice versa.”

The Sooners arrived Friday in New Orleans. The topic came up immediately. The question is going to be around until kickoff and actions speak louder than words ever have.

“Any opponent you play, you cannot be scared of them,” OU cornerback Aaron Colvin said Friday. “They are a good team, but so are we.”
