NORMAN -- Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops insisted on Monday there is nothing that would make him bench quarterback Landry Jones.

While addressing the Sooners' 24-19 loss to Kansas State on Saturday, Stoops said Jones might just be trying to do too much.

"I know Landry is a very bright guy that watching it he will see he's maybe making too much out of something," Stoops said.

Jones had two turnovers in the loss to K-State, including a fumble that was recovered for a touchdown.

Here is a look at what else Stoops had to say on Monday:
