Injuries and their impact on the offense

With Broyles out with a fractured shoulder blade, the Sooners are left without another playmaker. To understand this, consider the following stat:

In 2008, the Sooners passed for 4,891 yards, with 4,208 of those yards going to receivers and tight ends. With the eligibility completion (Iglesias, Johson, Chaney) and injuries (Gresham, Broyles), the Sooners have lost 4,005, or 95%, of those yards. Add in four o-lineman gone, and the starting QB on the shelf, and that's a lot ot make up for.

That being said, the offense scored 20 points. But it should have been enough to get us a W, if the D makes a couple of stops.
