[email protected]: Entering his 10th season, Stoops has reached the level of OU’s coaching greats
NORMAN — Bob Stoops lifted himself out of a chair in the Big Red Room the other day, a little more slowly than in perhaps his first OU season, because 47-year-old joints don’t spring like 38-year-old joints.
Turns out, that was not it. Hey, Bob. Did you say “Okie dokey” when you first arrived in Oklahoma?
Stoops came as close to laughing as you’ll ever see.
“No,” he said. “That might be the first time.”
Stoops, beginning his 10th season as the Sooner football coach, has been here long enough to do more than pick up Jackie Shipp’s vernacular.
