Miles v. Stoops: Count me in
Another Monday, friends. Another video commentary.
Watch it here, or read it below:
Could the madness of this college football season end with something so perfect, so cosmic that it makes sense of the craziness?
If LSU and Oklahoma play it will.
Les Miles vs. Bob Stoops.
Would that be perfect, or what?
The two coaches traded verbal jabs time and again before Miles left OSU for LSU. They had more barbs than a livestock fence.
After OSU beat OU 16-13 in 2001, Miles said the Cowboys should’ve won by more.
Stoops shot back by saying some people are satisfied with four wins.
The Cowboys, by the way, just happened to finish 4-7 that season.
A couple years later, Miles said of the Sooners, “They’re the best team in college football, we’re told.”
After the Sooners throttled the Cowboys 52-9 in Norman, Stoops was less than warm during the coaches’ post-game mid-field handshake. The Sooner coach later said, “I was professional. I said good game. That’s all I need to say. I don’t need to hear his opinion about anything.”
Oh, it’s been rich, rich stuff between these two.
Most coaches walk on eggshells these days. Miles and Stoops made scrambled eggs instead.
And it didn’t stop after Miles left OSU for LSU. He still couldn’t resist a little Bedlam trash talking. During one of LSU’s caravan stops two summers ago, Miles was asked a question about OU, LSU’s opponent in the Sugar Bowl a few years ago.
