    A coaching change won't do much if OU doesn't start recruiting defense better.

    Like Texas, things are messed up when somebody lets the 'Big Hats' call the shots.
    When the money guys begin playing politics and football, it want be long before one of them decides CLR should be next to go.

    This timing makes sense only if you have given up on the 2018 season or if he has become a clubhouse problem somehow.
    That's what I was thinking. This seems like a team who has lost three or four games already and is ready to scrap things and start over. Frankly, it seems like something Auburn would do.

    Incidentally, a rumor - and it is ONLY a rumor so far as I can tell at this point (handle with care) - is that Kelly Bryant has narrowed his choices down to two teams, Penn St and Oklahoma.


    I only bring that up because with Murray gone after this year as noted, this could be interesting.

    "In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Tuscaloosa underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire...the REC."

    He would be a downgrade for either of those schools - major downgrade.

    This may have an impact on the Bama coaching staff. I'm not mad about it though.

    I know this is true - I am surprised that they are allowed on the sideline on gameday. I wonder if the reduction in headsets caused that move.

    Re: Mike stoops out at oklahoma

    University president meddling with an assistant? That's a bad look, even if it is a DC whose last name is Stoops.

    Sends a message that donors are making decisions, and that opens Pandora's box.

    I don't disagree that Stoops should have been gone a while back. At the end of this year, absolutely.

    But now, with donors pulling Howdy Doody's strings? Jiminy Christmas, does the leadership have any idea what this says about not only the football program, but also your school?

    This was a nasty rookie mistake, made by a insecure president. It could be one that exacts a toll long after Stoops is replaced. Ask UTw how that works.

    You can't reason a man out of a position he didn't reason himself into.

    Wouldn’t surprise me at all. If I could hire a guy with hc experience and familiarity with the inner workings of the best program in college football to replace my incompetent DC, I would probably do it.
