NORMAN - Someone was yapping about Landry Jones again. Only this time, one of Jones' fellow Oklahoma football captains was listening.
This time, Tress Way was fed up enough to yap back.
"I was in the gym back home in Tulsa over last winter break," said Way, the Sooners' senior punter. "Landry hadn't decided if he was coming back, and I heard a guy speaking about him in a pretty bad way. He started talking about his character in and out of the locker room, and how players don't like him.
"I said, 'Man, you need to keep your mouth shut. That's not true. We all love him. We'd play for him any day.'
"That stuff bothers me. I understand people are going to criticize. That comes with playing at Oklahoma. But with Landry, it's so over the top. It always has been."
