Chicken-Fried News: Sooner diamond




Is Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops on the hot seat?

“The shine is off Bob Stoops’ star,” wrote Berry Tramel, a columnist for The Oklahoman. “His Sooners this season went from top-four in the nation to not even top-four in the Big 12.”

An Athletic Bowl bid was less than desired for Sooner fans who enter each year with championship aspirations, but a win would have at least given the program some momentum headed into the offseason. Instead, a 40-6 loss to Clemson reminded us all that Stoops has a tall task before him. Less than a year since picking fights with Alabama coach Nick Saban, Stoops’ squad is not only not on the same level as Bama but many wonder if it’s even in the top half of the Big 12.

These are not easy days to be the OU football coach, except perhaps for the millions of dollars in salary this year and next.

“They’re in total support of everything that I’ve done here for the last 16 years,” Stoops said about his tenure at the school, “and that’ll continue.”
