Bob Stoops Says SEC Comments Have Been Overblown, Laughs At Idea Of Being Entire Conference’s Rival

If it’s possible to be a rival of an entire conference, the Oklahoma football program seems to be one to the SEC.  Sooners’ coach Bob Stoops has questioned the SEC’s overall strength, poked fun at Texas A&M’s non-conference schedule and, perhaps most importantly, defeated the conference’s flagship program, Alabama, in last January’s Sugar Bowl.  Stoops says his...

ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum is pretty open about his bias towards the Southeastern Conference  - heck, he wrote a book titled “My Conference Can Beat Your Conference” about it.

Stoops: Seems DGB wants to stay at OU

Bob Stoops wouldn’t speak much Monday about Dorial Green-Beckham’s situation a few days after the NCAA denied a waiver request for immediate eligibility and Oklahoma all but announced it wouldn’t pursue the matter further.
