OU football notebook: Bob Stoops talks about Terrelle Pryor

by Michael Baldwin Published: August 23, 2011

Divided into 30-minute segments, here are times the shows will be re-aired the next four days:

Part I: Wednesday: 2:30 p.m. (ESPNU); 5:30 p.m. (ESPNU); Thursday: 10 p.m. (ESPN2); Friday: 9 p.m. (ESPNU); Saturday: 9 a.m. (ESPNU).

Part II: Wednesday: midnight (ESPN2); Thursday: 5:30 p.m. (ESPNU); 10:30 p.m. (ESPN2); Friday: 9:30 p.m. (ESPNU); Saturday: 9:30 a.m. (ESPNU).


In his last scheduled media session until Monday, Stoops was asked whether junior defensive end Ronnell Lewis is academically ineligible.

“I'm not going to comment on Ronnell until I know something definitive,” Stoops said.

Lewis participated in Tuesday's practice.


On the ESPN special, several players imitated Stoops' “don't violate rules” speech.

“You're done,” said wide receiver Kenny Stills, imitating Stoops. “You're outta here.”

With the Miami scandal and other issues around the country, how often does OU's staff lecture players on rules violations?

“We've always had some of them,” Stoops said. “Our guys are well-informed on what's allowed and what isn't. It's been that away for quite a while with us — for sure since 2005.”
