NORMAN — Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops has once again called out his home crowd in advance of an important home game against Texas Tech.
Before the Sooners’ November 2008 game against the Red Raiders, Stoops said Oklahoma fans weren’t “overly ruckus,” and the crowd responded by creating a loud, crazy atmosphere. The Sooners beat then-No. 2 Texas Tech 65-21.
Oklahoma again faces a top-10, unbeaten Texas Tech team this Saturday, and Stoops was asked about the crowd at his Monday news conference.
“It’d be awesome if we could recreate that atmosphere, and everybody jump in and do their best to try to affect the game, and, you know, build some excitement and all,” Stoops said. “We’ve gotta do our part. It’s a lot easier to be excited when you’re playing well. We’ve gotta hopefully give them some things to cheer about and jump in the game.”
