Shinn at 3 p.m.: Gundy wants players giving their all

— Oklahoma's season begins in less than two weeks.

Practices are starting to shift toward preparing for the Sept. 1 season opener at UTEP. Another shift is toward making sure players are healthy for the start of the season.

There's isn't as much hitting going on when the season draws closer.

Running backs coach Cale Gundy, however, isn't one to overly protect his players.

"I want as much as we can get. I want it to be as close to live as it's going to be like our first game. Even when we're staying up, I want those guys to butt up, I want them to try to rip the ball out," he said after Monday's practice. "I'm always talking to my guys about playing full speed, whether the defense is supposed to be going through three quarters or everybody's supposed to be half speed."
