Skip Bayless thinks Oklahoma, Bob Stoops should part ways

The Clemson Tigers were able to run away from the Oklahoma Sooners late in the Orange Bowl, bringing an unfortunate end to the 2015 season for Bob Stoops and his team. Some people were so upset about the loss that they began irrationally coming up with ridiculous ideas to “fix” the Oklahoma football team. Did we say irrational and ridiculous?

Kentucky coach Mark Stoops remains optimistic his football program will end a five-year drought and qualify to play in a bowl game next season.
