"But unlike Stills and Jefferson, it’s unclear if Wort will be drafted."
Smart move Tom.
CBS Sports Mock Draft...Wort listed as the 13th best ILB for the 2014 draft...no clue where this puts him for the 2013 draft
He doesn't get along with Stoops. I wish the kid well-
OU will be better against the run without him there next year.

He was passed up by Shannon on the depth chart. This is a glorified way of him quitting.
OU has plenty of depth to step-up at ILB. Plus they are killing it in recruiting thus far... they have that kid that plays with Oliver (Mastrogiovanni) coming in with this years recruiting class. They're solid!
Has Mike Stoops EVER been succesful without Venables? Venables was responsible for most of the success of the OU LB's over the years... reality is setting in.

This is sarcasm right?
If you ask me. Yes, it is absolutely sarcasm.
However, if you ask most Okie fans it's legit information... unless they actually knew that their only ILB commit dropped them for Aggy, and they only return 3 LB's next year with significant experience... and that Wort was their leading LB in almost every statistical category this year...
No big deal... "we didn't even need that guy"
Well, it was true that Shannon and Franklin were better tacklers than Wort. That said, if we cant get the DTs to keep the clean to the ball, it wouldnt matter if Rocky Calmus and Torrence Marshall were back there.
Wort was good with BV because BV kept him coming forward. He didnt have to do much moving around to find a fit to the ball. Mike Stoops did him no favors this year. Had him matched up in man with small RBs and slot WRs. That pretty much the story for the Kst game and that really put the fans down on Wort. Our scheme this year was probably the worst in the conference.
There is nothing more dangerous in this world than a man with nothing to lose.
Worst scheme???? Diaz says hello.
Although I will say OU's defensive scheme was pretty bad against some of the spread teams. They gave up a lot of pts the last 4-5 games of the year and were lucky to not lose a couple of those games.
Obviously, they killed our offense somehow.
Other than the seconday, OU's talent this past year on defense, was no where near the levels of some of their stellar teams.
Our LBs have been poor for a few years now and guess who recruited the LBs on roster now? BV recruited every LB on roster so someone has to be blamed for the lack of talent on the defensive side of the ball.
Fact is Wort was beaten out midway through the season by a younger player.
I thought about Diaz, but really, Mike Stoops scheme was as bad or worse. I understood his concept well and no matter what, I still came to the conclusion that it was a stupid scheme. We use that scheme next year, we will give up 500+ yards per game.
You had all three LB's (including Wort) on the All-Big 12 team last year!? Let me say it again... last year all 3 OU LB's made the All-Big 12 team. One was drafted into the NFL! But yea... they sucked.
And the actual "fact is" Wort was the starter in every game of the year besides one... and, he was your best LB on the team.
Wort was taken out and replaced with Shannon midway through the year. I watched every OU. There's no point in arguing with you though, I know I'm on a Texas board and a visitor so I'll leave it at that.
Sounds like Wort just lost his scholarship.
Disciplina praesidium civitatis
Wort is a Mini me LBer. Pre season fodder...
We don't really claim him.
