Bob Stoops didn’t have enough game balls to give out after Texas

Last week we watched Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops give out game balls about as fast asn Damien Williams could run 95 yards down the Cotton Bowl field.

This week Bob Stoops said he “didn’t have enough” game balls to give out for Oklahoma’s performance against Texas. How can you give a guy like Damien Williams a game ball for his 95-yard run but not also hand one to Trey Millard and Kenny Stills for the blocks they threw during the run? How do you choose just one guy out of a starting defense that didn’t give up any points the entire game?

Stoops said he couldn’t choose. That’s why he gave two games balls.

The defensive player of the game was the entire defense.
The offensive player of the game was the entire offense.

One for you and one for you and one for everybody.
