Love Coach Stoops, but he is loyal to a fault. Sticking with assistants, players too long.

When Spencer Tillman talks you darn sure better listen. He is one of the most intelligent people in football. I met him and was able to talk to him at a benefit and he was one of the more impressive people I've been around. Nice guy on top of it all.
What the heck does that mean? Does it mean we have good DT's or not.
Let me guess, weatherman or economist.
You think the topic is about DTs?
Let me guess, special ed?
I agree, all I hear now out of Bob is excuses.
I'm as disappointed as anyone about the bowl loss, but we lost to three terrific teams and two of those games were very close.
The bowl game obviously wasn't close, but has anyone not learned by now that the bowl season is the Twilight Zone of college football?
Barry Switzer's teams occasionally got their asses kicked in bowl games, too, and by teams that were not led by a Heisman Trophy winner. And yet the sky never did fall during his tenure in Norman.
I'm not for a minute suggesting that Coach Stoops and Co. should sit pat, but I'm sure not going to panic over a 10-2 regular season in which we won a share of the conference crown.
And I said a year ago when so many were screaming for Coach Mike's return that they -- and he -- were going to be disappointed if they thought he was going to pick right up where he left off. I said then that he wouldn't even recognize the Big 12, that the offensive firepower of the conference is night and day from his first stint at OU. And it's true.

The Tech offense with Kingsbury was as wide open as any we see now.
The losses were to good teams, but the defense and it's coaching is a bright red flag right now.
Let's talk when Alabama gets scrimmaged in a game at home, let alone a bowl game.
You named one team.
There were three Big 12 teams in the top 10 in scoring this season (A&M was up there too--just our luck) -- five in the top 15, six in the top 20, seven in the top 25.
That's a very different conference than the one Coach Mike knew.
On this board you must agree with everyone or you're wrong.
The problem is ... who did OU beat that is really good?
It wouldn't have mattered. We were the only team that could hold Tech under 300 yards. If there had been others, we'd handled them too. The difference was, we had both BV and MS and they compromised on scheme. BV would have never let his LBers be deemphasized.
Now there is no BV, and TK is a willing yes man to MS experiments. So far, no good.
