    If he got back into coaching it wouldn't be at a fish bowl program like Bama or Ohio St. His father died of a heart attack at a relatively young age (54) and this has been something that has been on Stoops' mind for many, many years. Hence his retirement from OU at 52. So that is on the forefront of his mind. If it stays on the forefront of his mind why in the world would he go to a school where the moment you ink your name the stress begins? I just don't see it. But I've been wrong many, many times before.

    It sounds like he means it too, unlike Coach Urban Myer who stepped away for "health concerns".

    Yah, I know most coaches are good at saying one thing while meaning something else, but I get the feeling Stoops might really be done.

    I agree and, if he would even take on the SEC, I doubt his effectiveness. He has a pretty decent record against B12 opponents, but in bowl games, he's an even .500. That's nothing to brag about. It seems to say that, when he gets outside his conference, he gets exposed...

    His early OU teams took over with defense and a methodical air raid approach that still tried to create a little balance.
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    Whatever, I don't want him. One thing's certainly missing and that's passion for the game. Or he wouldn't be retired so young. Nothing morally wrong with that, just wouldn't make him a good hire...

    Don't know if this belongs in this thread...

    I happened to catch Dabo on Sirius this afternoon and he said he has never signed a juco player. Wondering if this is true and if it's an advantage in recruiting? He was mentioning it in the context of their commitment to develop players. Dabo has recruited at a high level recently.

    I think we can just remove the "Bama" from that and be accurate. Success brings arrogance to the human condition pretty regularly. But, I'm not offended by that, because I think it's true. Bama fans have a well earned reputation for being a bit arrogant, a rep shared by many fanbases.
