Bob Stoops has had NOTHING BUT issues with the press over his Dorial Green-Beckham transfer after multiple arrests AND allegedly forced open an apartment door and pushed a woman down a flight of stairs.
Then there is also of course Joe Mixon top running back BAD BOY. Bob Stoops reviewed a security tape of Joe Mixon striking a young woman resulting in serious facial injuries and decided on a one-year suspension from the football team. Then late last year 2016 Bob Stoops told the press after the season that his decision would have been different now once the tape went viral.
Now there is another. Baker Mayfield arrested on FELONY CHARGES and in the last several weeks now today still facing these legal charges. On April 7 he plead NOT GUILTY to ALL CHARGES. That is his STARTING QUARTERBACK as THIS BLOG pointed-out at the time. See this blog’s entries on THAT ARREST which can be searched and are listed after any post as RELATED POSTS at the bottom of the post – if you click this post not just only read the home page.
Coincidence that Bob Stoops is STEPPING-DOWN ?
I don’t think so.
Bob Stoops clearly has gone the WRONG-WAY on taking-in just big chances with players who have great promise and who also have no business playing collegiate football whom other schools had TROUBLE WITH THERE and so they end-up on Bob Stoops’ team Oklahoma. Even with that Bob Stoops could not win the big games. Even playing in the stinking Big XII Bob Stoops could not do well. I do not therefore find this at all unusual that Bob Stoops has QUIT given his statements AFTER last season and NOW THIS on top of all that that yes Dorial Green-Beckham and yes Joe Mixon have put EGG all over Bob Stoops’ face and NOW THIS with Baker Mayfield.
The reports of Baker Mayfield state that he Mayfield is a person who is unable to walk straight, having slurred speech and having food covering the front of his shirt. When he was asked to stay so the police could get a statement, Mayfield began shouting obscenities and “causing a scene”. After resisting arrest he was charged ALSO by the police with fleeing arrest as well. His case against ALL these charges are NOT RESOLVED.
And so NOW Bob Stoops quits.
Defend Bob Stoops all you want but he has THROWN IN THE TOWEL.
Good riddance to the CHEATER taking-in THUGS like this and STILL not getting back to the national championship after 2000.
In 2003 Bob Stoops lost his last two (2) games including being BLOWN-OUT by Kansas State.
In 2004 Bob Stoops was BLOWN-OUT by Southern California.
In 2008 Bob Stoops lost to Texas by double-digits and still lost to Florida by double-digits.
Then two years’ ago 2015 Bob Stoops lost to Texas and still played Clemson BLOWN-OUT 17-37 only to watch Clemson lose the next game to Alabama.
Then THIS LAST SEASON 2016 Bob Stoops lost to Houston by double-digits then LOST in a BLOW-OUT to Ohio State 24-45 only to watch Ohio State lose to Clemson 31 to nothing.
These are Bob Stoops’ best years – cough cough – after 2000. Now you have the nutshell of Bob Stoops’ 2003 2004 2008 2015 and 2016 season leading-up to this LESS THAN STUNNING announcement that Bob Stoops gives up – quits – can not compete and no longer wants to even try to compete with these questionable players such as NOW his wide receiver running back and quarterback.
They do NOT call the place choke-la-homa for NOTHING.
We better do something with all these running backs we are stock-piling here. One would THINK that an AVERAGE offensive line could block for the # 1 group of running backs in the nation right ?
