Bob Stoops: Officials should ‘absolutely’ apologize for botched calls
Sooners coach Bob Stoops was asked about the apology Wednesday after practice. Many of his comments were used in the story in today’s Oklahoman; here is Stoops’ full answer:
“We’re all in a big-boy world. We have to answer to everything we do. Players do. Even my college kids do. Why wouldn’t professionals?
“Listen, I think our officials do an awesome job, so I’m not commenting on that. But in the end, everybody’s human, everyone’s going to make a mistake here and there. I believe our officials are awesome and nothing would ever be intentional. It’s just, a judgment call sometimes, it’s tough. Some of those decisions aren’t very easy.
“I’m still not gonna let the guys at Oregon off the hook.”
Stoops was, of course, referring to Oregon’s controversial 34-33 win over Oklahoma in 2006.
