    Stoops What if Bob had a premonition?

    that OU is on a path to Gary Gibbs, or even John Blake, like suckage in the next few years due to our continued affiliation with the god awful Big 12?

    So he decided to get out before the downward spiral begins?

    People don't get to his position in life running away from challenges - challenges are what drives successful people like Bob.

    what if bob had a dream that joe was infected with an alien form of a brain eating amoeba that was causing him to dress up in wwii **** regalia. and he asked bob to dress the same or else he'd be beheaded at louie's?

    and bob would've done it, but brown tones make him feel all meh and shit.

    there was no way he could go on coaching after a dream like that. no way...

    What if Bob had a premonition....that he had a group of athletes with the same drive and potential as when he arrived on campus, and discovered he had an opportunity to set the plate for a possible title run for an up-and-coming young coach, just as Joe Castiglione had given to him in 1999? What if he thought he had set up a new guy with some of the premier facilities in the country, one of the strongest fan bases, and a ~$3M salary just for gravy?

    You know, glass half full and all that...

    Ah so, mutha fucka.

    Meh, don't kid yourself. Us gloomer doomers forced him out. He probably was having nightmares of me, crooter, eight is great, and boomer magic saying nasty things about him on LT.

    For real. SOmetimes people just get tired and burnt out or want to retire. We have like 100+ posts about the "why" he did it. He's a ****ing normal person and might just want to go to Tuscany and see his sons final year of HS.

    I can't understand why so many people have a hard time with the concept of a person deciding he is getting older and needs to start enjoying his life to the fullest without the stress and upset and time demands that comes with a high pressure job. He earned it and he needs to kick back and enjoy it. No mystery to me.

    Bob says being able to watch his sons play was not a consideration.

    Yep…. I get pretty tired of the WHAT IF’s threads and rarely post on them as many just like this one are antagonistic in nature.

    This^ there are not too many coaches at Blue Blood programs who want to coach as long as Bob did because of the stressful nature of the job.

    A gut feeling tells me Riley may be different….and end up coaching at OU longer than a lot of us live. But who knows?

    How Come
    Ray LaMontagne


    People on the street now
    Faces long and grim
    Souls are feeling heavy
    And faith is growing thin
    Fears are getting stronger
    You can Feel them on the rise
    Hopelessness got some by the throat you can see it in their eyes
    I said how come
    How come
    Everybody on a shoestring
    Everybody in a hole
    Everybody crossing their fingers and toes
    Government man spin his politics till he got you pinned
    Everybody trying to reach out to each other
    But they don't know where to begin
    I said how come
    I can't tell
    The free world
    From living hell
    I said how come
    How come
    All I see
    Is a child of god
    In misery
    I said how come the pistol now as profit
    The bullet some kind of lord and king
    But pain is the only promise that this so called savior is going to bring
    Love can be a liar
    And justice can be a thief
    And freedom can be an empty cup from which everybody want to drink
    I said how come
    I can't tell
    The free world
    From living hell
    I said how come
    How come
    All I see
    Is a child of god
    In misery
    I said how come
    Its just man killing man
    Killing man
    Killing man
    Killing man
    Killing man
    I don't understand
    Its just man killing man

    How is the Big 12 going to cause problems in the next few years that it hasn't already? It's been in this condition since 2011 and OU is stronger than it has been since 2008. We had the SEC's #2 calling timeouts at the end of the Sugar Bowl to keep it from looking like a blowout. Just keep scheduling OOC like OU does and it's all good. And that's all assuming Texas continues to suck which, while it's fun, probably won't last forever.

    You might be broken.

    I see no time or place in the universe or any alternate universe where Texas does not suck.

    I lived through the John Blake era--we aren't anywhere close to that ****ing shit show. Stoops would literally have to tack our Two Deep to a board and start throwing darts at it before we were anything close to that.

    I see Riley ending up in the NFL by the time he's 40.

    Now that 10 days has gone by since Stoops signed off, I really believe him when he says he has been thinking about this for awhile. The only person that knew before he initially told Boren and Joe C. in April this was his last year was his wife. Then I think when he convinced them Riley was the man he decided to leave now so the staff gets at least one more year with Riley and everything isn't blown up. Carol left Mary Kay last year and this was all part of the plan imo. Bob has plenty of cash, can decompress, relax the next 6 months just being a Dad then see what comes his way. I think he either takes on the NFL if it is the right place or goes into the studio for cfb with ESPN or FOX a year from now imo.......

    What if Bob was in a meeting with Joe, but he really needed to take a shot. But ****ing Joe just kept yammering on about sellout crowds and fundraising, and Bob jumped up and said while running out the door "**** it, I'm out, I gotta shit." But he was already out the door by the time he said the last part. So Joe being Joe thinks Bob is done, and gets the paperwork drawn up while Bob is taking a massive dump. When Bob gets back he's feeling so good he signs whatever Joe puts in front of him.

    i'd be extremely surprised if either of those things happen.

    he's as entertaining in front of a camera as a tax accountant.

    and i don't think he has the energy or desire for the nfl.

    I've never taken a shot whilst I take a shit but I'm not a multimillionaire like Bob. I imagine that's a pretty regular schedule. maybe he adds Metamucil to the shot?
