    • Oklahoma has had a 100-yard receiver in five of seven games this season.

    • There are 34 players on this team with previous experience as a starter for OU. That’s up from 10 over the number that returned last season.

    Home Field Honchos
    • Oklahoma is 51-2 at Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium under Bob Stoops and has won its last 15 in a row there and 35 of its last 36. During Stoops’s tenure, which included home winning streaks of 19 and 17 games, OU has registered six shutouts on Owen Field.

    Great Slate
    • Oklahoma has played exclusive Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly I-A) opposition since Bob Stoops’ opener in 1999 (a 49-0 win over I-AA Indiana State) or for 110 consecutive games. The entire 2007 schedule is comprised of FBS competition.

Those four losses were by a total of seven points (27-24 at Colorado, 43-42 to Boise State, 34-33 at Oregon and 23-21 at Texas Tech), and all were away from Norman.
    Stoops Era Attendance
    Oklahoma has drawn 4,244,302 for Bob Stoops’ 53 home games (started in 1999) ...

    • Last year’s average home attendance of 84,561 was the largest in school history. The top seven seasons for OU home attendance have come on Stoops’ watch.
    • The crowd of 85,357 for this year’s Miami game is the largest in school history. The 84,472 for this year’s North Texas game was the largest ever for an OU opener
    • OU has exceeded its listed capacity of 82,112 in 27 consecutive games.
    • When the game against Missouri sold out, it marked the 94th (home, away and neutral) to do so in Bob Stoops’ 112 games as the OU head coach.

    Stoops can stoop no lower. Other coaches love to tan his hide.

    I really can't stand the phrase "boomer sooner". I REALLY dont like Chris "Boomer" Berman. That guy annoys the heck outta me, a lot more than that queer wagon OU rides around in.

    Yes. Yes I do. I would have posted his look-a-like in the look-a-like thread, but it would not have been appropriate for public posting.

    I think it was 1976. I was sitting the student section and we were hosting Number 3 Oklahoma. As the fourth-quarter began it was a 10-10 tie. Then all hell broke loose and we lost 24-10. D*** Sooners.

    ISU has had 21 plays over 40 yards. Of course they are all on defense.

    Stoops is a very good coach and I would probably like him but he doesn't hide his hate for ISU at all from back at his Iowa days. He runs it up on ISU any chance he gets. Personally he probably likes running ISU into the ground as much as he likes to beat Texas. What an A**!

    It will be a good day when we can finally stick it to him. And it will happen!

    The best way to keep someone from running it up is to stop them.
