    Stoops not getting it done in bowls

    Anyone know what Stoops' record in bowl games is? Not good I'm guessing.

    They are definitely laying eggs in the BCS recently.

    The funny thing about that is for most of the game OU was getting blown out by Boise...

    4-5 overall with wins in the 2001 Orange (FSU), 2002 Cotton (Arkansas), 2003 Rose (Wazzu) and 2005 Holiday (Oregon).

    Losses are 1999 Independence (Miss), 2004 Sugar (LSU), 2005 Orange (USC), 2007 Fiesta (Boise) and 2008 Fiesta (WVU).

    I couldn't help but laugh at that on-side kick in the middle of the 3rd quarter which swung the momentum from OU to WVU for the rest of the game.

    Re: Stoops not getting it done in bowls

    This has to simply be a case of him not getting his teams ready to play in these big games. The last four years you could easily make a case that OU was playing some of the best football in the country at the end of the year. Then they come out and look like a completely different team in the BCS.

    Bradford looked rattled all night though. His youth really showed, but the OLine didn't give him much time and the running game seemed pretty inconsistent.

    It sucks really. Oklahoma wins the Big 12 so often and then botches their bowls. What does that look like to the rest of the conferences when our champion sucks? I only wanted Oklahoma to win this game for the good of the B12. But in my mind I was glad they lost because of Stoops.

    Just wondering how you can win the 2005 Holiday bowl and lose the 2005 Orange?


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    What I don't understand is that I've heard several talking heads refer to Stoops as "Big Game Bob" for his penchant for winning big games. WTF?????? I think a 1-4 record in his last 5 bowl games, getting hammered by USC for the title a few years ago, the horrible beatdown to KSU in the Big 12 title game, and the terrible decisions last night (going for 2 with 21+ minutes left, the onside kick) will pretty much kill that nickname for good.

    Re: Stoops not getting it done in bowls

    Two point conversions, onside kick, running wide, blitzing a running QB, taking the 5 yd. penalty on a punt,-- this was a poorly coached game by the ex-hawkeye.
