Sooners coach Bob Stoops remembers funny, heckling Texas Tech professor

NORMAN — Bob Stoops was asked Wednesday about Texas Tech’s rowdy crowd, and while answering, he remembered a professor whose heckles made him laugh.

“I miss the guy,” Stoops said. “He’d he heckling you, and he’d have like 10 students with him. Nothing real crude, just funny.”

Stoops remembers walking before the game with Steve Spurrier, Jr., OU’s former receivers coach, and Spurrier was wearing a green jacket.

“They said, ‘What’d, just win the Masters?’” Stoops recalled. “I came out there for warm-ups and had my visor on, and he called me a Spurrier wanna-be.

“I’m cracking up; I’m thinking, ‘This guy’s the best.’ You’ve gotta get entertained when they have a good one. … You don’t pay attention, except when they’re funny like that.”

Stoops said he doesn’t remember seeing the professor in 2007 or 2009, the last two times his teams visited Lubbock.
