    Re: Bob Stoops continues to troll SEC fans

    "Funny how people can't play defense when they have pro-style quarterbacks over there, which we've had. They're all playing in the NFL right now."
    SEC teams have had difficulty slowing down the stellar quarterbacks in their league this season, including Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel, Georgia's Aaron Murray and LSU's Zach Mettenberger.
    Meanwhile, former Big 12 stars such as Baylor's Robert Griffin III, Oklahoma State's Brandon Weeden and Texas A&M's Ryan Tannehill currently are playing in the NFL after terrorizing the conference's defenses with their arms in years past.

    Re: Bob Stoops continues to troll SEC fans

    Why is it considered trolling when you give an honest, and accurate statement? Other than Cam Newton, what SEC QBs have made it to the NFL the last few years?

    I don't think you know what trolling actually is.

    Not a fan of Stoops at all, but by god, I will give him props on his ability to talk **** to the SEC. I think more of the B12 should do it. Its makes them shake in frustration over there.

    I still don't know how (Texas) A&M was third in the country in total offense and scoring offense playing all those SEC defenses. I have no idea how that happened," Stoops said. "Oh, they got a quarterback. That's right.

    Here's why it's trolling:

    Florida 24 Oklahoma 14.

    Alabama 37 Texas 21

    He has a point, which why it's a good troll job but not only can you not really prove his point right or wrong, but when those high powered Big 12 offenses got their chance against a good SEC defense they didn't look very good.

    And scores from four years ago are relevant today exactly how?

    Didn't that Florida Team have Tebow (a good college quarterback, not so much in the pros), and Texas had Garrett Gilbert running the show for most of the game against Alabama.

    Yeah, when your Heisman candidate QB goes out early I don't know that that score is indicative of the teams that season.

    If I'm understanding Stoops' point, people criticized the Big 12 for not playing any defense when Guys like Bradford, McCoy, and Tannehill were playing in the Big 12 and praised the SEC's defenses even though they weren't facing many NFL QB's.

    Now that the shoe is on the other foot nobody is saying anything about how bad the SEC defenses are.

    My point in that post was that the reason it's a troll job rather than giving a fact based opinion is that his team got to face one of those SEC defenses and scored 14 points. He knows those SEC defenses were good but he also knows that he plays in the Big 12 and the media love affair with the SEC could cost him an opportunity to play for a championship.

    Losing Colt McCoy and having to play Garret Gilbert may have influenced the Texas offense in their game against Alabama. Possibly. I mean, Gilbert has had such a great career; it's hard to say.

    It's one game against a team that won the national championship. While important, it is not indicative of the entire conferences. OU with Bradford scored 17 points against ISU the year before, their lowest output of the season. That doesn't mean ISU had the best defense in the Big 12.

    I remember that Texas vs. Alabama national title game and I am pretty certain if Colt McCoy wouldn't have gone down early in that game Texas would have won that game. Hell they almost won it with Garrett Gilbert. Pretty sure the score was 24-21 late in the game.
