OU’s Stoops optimistic

Oklahoma State and Oklahoma were both scheduled to begin spring practice today, but storms in the area have forced Oklahoma State to postpone its start until Tuesday.

Oklahoma will move inside for its afternoon practice today, but Sooners coach Bob Stoops spoke with the media on Monday afternoon to kick off the 2010 spring session.

Stoops said he was happy with how the winter had gone for his team, but as always, was amazed by how soon spring practices arrived.

“When you get into the bowl season and all those practices, and then recruiting, you’re kind of going a million miles an hour, and before you know it, you’re back into spring practice leading into the next season,” Stoops said. “But it’s an exciting time. Us coaches always love this time of year, working with all the young players and developing them.”
