|Country singer Toby Keith on new Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger: "The fence-sitters have already converted to Lon's side."|
"Looove Lon Kruger," Toby Keith told me Saturday morning. "Lon Kruger is a perfect hire. I know people have been chattering about who we should have hired and whether we should have fired Jeff Capel, the pros and cons. But the fence-sitters have already converted to Lon's side."
"They're the kind of guys [Kruger's recruits] that will make a difference on this team immediately," Keith said. "I don't know if we had that (under Capel) coming in immediately. One way or another, he's hit the street here in about a month and made changes that are going to make a difference.
"He's won everywhere he's been. He's no BS. They're going to play hard defense and do what they do."
