If Les Miles were to go to Arkansas, do you see Arkansas possibly beginning to consider leaving the SEC for the Big 12?

No. I don't think that's a possibility at all. I think Arkansas likes being in the SEC, and if they had a coach like Les Miles they'd have a chance to be much more competitive in the SEC. If you had a chance to be more competitive, why would you leave the best football conference?

I don't get the Stoops to TN talk. If not the NFL, I can only see Bob leaving OU for the house.

Bob Stoops would never leave OU for Tennessee. Bob Stoops' name gets linked to all sorts of jobs that he would never leave Oklahoma for. If he turned down Notre Dame and Florida, then I don't see why he would ever go to Tennessee. I think you're right, I don't see him coaching anywhere else. He'll be at OU until he retires.

Any OU recruits at the Bedlam game comment on the experience in a positive way?

I haven't talked to any of their recruits, but I would guess that Jordan Evans (linebacker from Norman North) had a great time. He got an offer after the game and has since committed to OU.

With the plethora of job openings in the FBS and more sure to come, has there been any interest expressed in Mike Stoops?

Not anything real serious that I've heard. I don't think Mike's stock is extremely high after the last couple of games. I do think that he'll have the opportunity to be a head coach again, but not this year.

How is OU men’s basketball doing?

Well, they're OK. Lon Kruger still has a long way to go in this rebuilding process. There's reason to think that the team has improved over last year.
