Bob Stoops Wrote An Op-ed Supporting Oklahoma's Move To The SEC
© Ben Queen-USA TODAY Sports
As the Sooners await the official thumbs up from the SEC, former Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops shared his thoughts on them joining the conference in an op-ed for The Oklahoman...

“Let’s set the record straight: OU’s move to the SEC is what’s best for Oklahoma,” Stoops wrote, via The Oklahoman. “The reality is that conferences are now more important than ever and, with limited spots, the strongest conferences would not accept OU if we were to require OSU to join as well. By joining the SEC, we ensure the state’s flagship university will be represented nationally while protecting our rich football history for many years to come. To move forward in any other manner would be to the detriment of OU and the state of Oklahoma.”

What else is he going to say? Does anyone think OU will win the overall SEC anytime soon? We no Texas isn't! We'll just have to wait and see how this plays out.

I doubt that. His brother Mark, coaches Kentucky and played every game last season even with a Covid depleted team. No yellow there.
