Stoops says Go Hawks

Jake Trotter Modified: April 18, 2013 at 4:49 pm •  Published: December 28, 2010

As soon as this afternoon’s practice ended, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops began to get fired up for the big game. Not OU-UConn. But tonight’s Insight Bowl between Missouri and Stoops’ alma mater Iowa.

“I got my Hawkeye gear ready to go,” said Stoops, who will attend the game with family and about 60 of his players. “I know Missouri is in the Big 12, but I’m a Hawkeye. Gotta cheer for my Hawks.”

Stoops played his college ball at Iowa in the 1980s. So did brothers Mike and Mark Stoops. Stoops admitted he didn’t have a Hawkeye visor to wear, but said, “I’ve got the pullover, and my wife’s got her Hawkeye shirt. We’re excited to watch.”
