•Stoops says Fiesta Bowl loss behind Sooners:
OU coach Bob Stoops
said that losing 48-28 to West Virginia in the Fiesta Bowl hasn't had an impact on how the 2008 Sooners have practiced so far this spring.
"I say this all the time, I've never seen one year tied to the other. We've won the national championship before, and it didn't have anything to do with the next year,” Stoops said. "We've lost it, and it didn't have anything to do with the next year. It's a different team, different players, coaches change here and there.
