    Stoops may listen to Notre dame?

    After a Chicago Sun-Times article mentioned Bob Stoops as a potential candidate for the soon-to-be-vacant Notre Dame job, the Oklahoma head coach almost immediately denounced the rumor as "ridiculous".


    That rumor had started to slowly sink below the surface, but now, today, Mr. College Football seems to be doing his best to resuscitate it.


    Tony Barnhart of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, arguably the best and most connected college football writer in the country, has scooped the Stoops rumor up off the floor and tosses it back on the table in a note titled "I think Bob Stoops will at least listen to Notre Dame."


    Barnhart insinuates that 11 years in Norman may be enough for Stoops, and that the 49-year-old coach may have "one more move left in him."


    To be honest, Barnhart may be on to something. The criticism of Stoops has grown louder than it ever has this year, even as a good chunk of the Sooners' disappointing season is directly attributable to injuries. Can Stoops turn a deaf ear to the critics, or will it open up an ear that would normally be closed to at listen to the calls that will inevitably come from South Bend?


    All we know is, when Barnhart says something, it's best to sit up and pay attention.

    I would love to see it. Any heartburn for the rednecks in Oklahoma is a good thing.

    I think this is more likely than Urban Meyer. Lots of people at OU are ready for a change.

    Of course he'll listen. And then he'll wait for OU to counter with a new contract - he won't leave the Big 12

    I think this would make sense - he's only one year out of the game and can recruit the south, all he needs is a combination of SEC and Big 12 experienced coordinators and his team would be a threat to win the south every year.

    I don't think Oklahoma would be happy with Kelly, for some reason. I think Kelly is likely to go to Notre Dame before Stoops.

    Mark May threw out Stoops and Ferentz be an interesting time between ND's loss to Stanford and their bowl game
