    Will Stoops start feeling the heat at Oklahoma soon?

    I know this sounds crazy but if Oklahoma goes on to have a mediocre season (I know they have injury issues as an excuse) will Stoops be on the hot seat next year? He is 4-6 in bowl games and has lost his last 5 BCS bowl games. Will fans in Norman start to get restless if this year and next happen to go "badly" for the Sooners? I have heard that the fan base is getting tired of losing big games.

    No way, no how, no chance. It would take a 2-10 season to start discussions, and then back to back losing seasons to get things serious.

    My father in law is a huge OU fan and he isn't very happy with ol' Stoopsy, I can tell you that.

    He will never leave there. If they canned him, I cant say I would shed a tear for him. Hes a punk.

    Re: Will Stoops start feeling the heat at Oklahoma soon?

    I'm not saying it's beyond the realm of possibility, but the success they've had since he arrived has been pretty good, to say the least. Remember when everyone was telling us that we couldn't do any better than Mac? Well, to be honest, I really don't think OU or anyone for that matter could do much better. Other than offering Urban Meyer more than he's making at Florida.

    I wish we had half of OU's disappointment over the last 10 years.

    Stoops has only dominated the Big 12 ever since he got there.
    There would be, oh, about 100 FBS schools anxious to scoop him up.

    I think that it's safe to say that we've had that - and much, much more

    If fired, he would walk from the press conference over to the private jet taking him to his NEXT press conference announcing his hire at another school.

    I'm not saying it's right, I'm just saying it's the way it is. He likes him but he thinks he's overrated and overpaid.

    Re: Will Stoops start feeling the heat at Oklahoma soon?

    Does the Oklahoma fan base remember the recent years before Bob Stoops was their head coach? If half of them do, there is no way they would be that crazy. He has no heat on him, all he does is win Big 12 titles.

    The answer to that is no their fans don't care about what it was like before he got there. College football is a what have you done for me lately business. Stoops hasn't won the big game for a long time now. I realize there would be no problem in him finding another job but, ask Tommy Tuberville if he thought he would be fired at Auburn a couple years after going 13-0.

    Of course not; however, the Hayden Fry coaching tree has taken a tumble the last few years.

    Bob Stoops is one of the few bright spots left. Captain Kirk has rebounded some.
