Oklahoma Sooners thinking National Championship in 2014

The Oklahoma Sooners got a big 45-31 win over the Alabama Crimson Tide in the Sugar Bowl to end their 2013 season. Alabama has dominated college football under Nick Saban, including winning three National Championships.

The win has given Oklahoma some momentum and optimism heading into the 2014 season and they’re starting to think about the National Championship.

“That’s what the Sugar Bowl did for us, give us that baseline, give us that starting point, give us that foundation,” starting quarterback Trevor Knight said, via the Dallas Morning News. “To start that way and now we can play that well and take it into next season is going to be big for us.”

Some of his teammates were a little bit more blunt in their comments..

“First and foremost, national championship,” said senior offensive tackle Daryl Williams.

“We want nothing but the national championship,” senior Geneo Grissom said. “That’s what we’re striving for, us seniors. We want to go out with a bang and that’s the best way to do it.”

“That’s what we work every day for, a chance to get to the national championship,” senior defensive back Julian Wilson said. “You have to have that confidence in your head, you can’t go in with confidence thinking you’re not going to be one of those four teams or what’s the point in going out and playing?”

This is Oklahoma,” senior Chuka Ndulue said. “From the Selmon brothers to the national championships they’ve won, to the history and past.”

“Theres a tradition, there’s just a code that’s followed,” Ndulue said. “Hey, you’re expected to win and go out there and be dominant.”
