    If OU wins #8, what's your lasting view of Coach Stoops?

    Coach****** Pondered this on my drive home today... If LR can somehow drive this team to a CFP and NC, how much will we look back on it and credit Bob? At this point, to say a lot of what was built here is not Stoops' doing would be a lie. It was he who brought in (with help of the...

    Lincoln's Press conference today

    the more I listen to this guy, the more I like him and the more excited I get about the future of this program. He's a confident guy but also knows how to deflect attention that he could legitimately claim, but instead chooses to use it to build up those around him. I get more and more what Bob...

    Riley has taken all his prior head coaches strengths and added his most important one.

    Attention to detail. It's amazing how much better our players are in position to make plays now than we have been in the past. We are almost perfecting plays on offense and we are gap sound on defense now and improving. URban Meyer attacked our lbs every way possible just like I said he would...

    We can make a run, but let's not kid ourselves. We are racking up serious injuries and it wasn't like we played mistake free ball versus tOSU. We should have been up by a couple of scores by halftime. But the Defense took advantage of a one dimensional offense last night, and we won't see too...

    Bob Stoops...a sincere Thank You

    You re-established this. You took away the Shnelly/Blake pain. You built the new OU. You always understood how big the program was and never wanted it to be about get it. Maybe after 18 years of blood, sweat, and tears, you thought you couldn't get the players to respond 100%, 100% of the...

    Mike Stoops coaching good defense.

    Maybe it is because his bigger brother no longer has his back. He is under pressure to perform this year. Mike has really impressed the last two games. He seems like he is calmer as he as gotten older. Maybe this has helped. The defense played great tonight even against a running QB (Mike's...

    Running Back U doesn't miss a beat. Seriously, this guy is a true freshman?! Run, catch, block...this guy is the real deal. Oh and he held on to the ball. We didn't see Adams after the fumble. Bob Stoops had the same intolerance for turnovers.

    Riley > stoops.

    Incredible. The team is playing crisp and with clear intent. Have not seen this level of execution since 08. Riley is making a strong case he is/will be a better HBC than stoops.

    Thoughts on the 2017 offense

    Lincoln Riley is committed to running the ball. Going forward, I think we are going to be a team that focuses on maintaining an elite OL and relying on it in running the ball as our first option. I love seeing this. We are going to play a big lineup. Most of the time we played: QB RB 5 OL...

    I certainly feel much better about our receiving corps, but as an alum and fan who has been screaming to the rooftops now for years that Stoops needs to add the TE into the scheme, IMHO, I have to acknowledge the good stuff I think they do: 7 catches for 134 yards and 1 TD??? Well Done. ...

    OU fans -- if you had to pick one of the three, would you say that Stoops leaving and replacement by LR 1) Increased chances of NC this season; 2) Decreased chances of NC this season; or 3) Likely no appreciable effect on chances of NC this season.
