Oklahoma Sooners (official thread)

    Oklahoma had no choice but to cut ties with Mike Stoops as playoff hopes remain alive

    It finally came time for Lincoln Riley to make the move Sooners fans have been waiting to see

    Bad things sometimes happen to good people. Mike Stoops is one of those good people.

    But good hearts don't always win football games.

    Oklahoma's defensive coordinator paid the price Sunday night for his unit's lackluster performance this season when he was reportedly fired one day after OU's devastating loss to Texas in the Red River Showdown.

    Stoops, long a whipping boy for vocal Oklahoma fans, led a sometimes-leaky defense that seemed to keep the Sooners from reaching the next level.

    If it wasn't criticism of Stoops from Oklahoma fans, it was criticism of his brother, former head coach Bob Stoops, for keeping his sibling on the staff. It was easy for those critics to assume Mike kept his job for so long because the coaches shared the same last name.

    Now 1 ½ seasons removed from Bob Stoops' shadow, head coach Lincoln Riley had enough cover to make the move while championship hopes remain alive for the Sooners this season.

    Entire article:

    I don't follow Oklahoma football that close; however, I guess it is possible that Mike Stoops (defense) was to Oklahoma what Tim Beck (offense) was to Ohio State.

    After the Texas loss, they had to get rid of Stoops 'Sooner' rather than later. :blush:

    Pretty soon Texsa fans will realize that both Beck and even Todd Orlando (45 points allowed to OU) aren't all that, just like Mike Stoops wasn't for OU. Our chances of winning another national title go up after Lincoln had to make this move.

    Yet two Playoff appearances in three years since Lincoln Riley has been with this program.
