Yet here, Stoops has said talk connecting him to Notre Dame is "ridiculous.”
OU offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson, who was out Sunday recruiting with Stoops, told The Oklahoman
Sunday night he didn’t think there was anything to the Notre Dame rumors, though admitted "Bob doesn’t talk about that stuff.”
Another source close to the program told The Oklahoman
reports that Stoops is interested in talking about the Notre Dame job are untrue.
But as for Notre Dame’s interest in Stoops?
At this point, he appears to be at the top of their wish list.
That doesn’t mean Stoops will take the Notre Dame job. Doesn’t mean he’ll consider it. Doesn’t mean he’ll even listen to anyone about it.
But it does mean Notre Dame and its fans are still holding out hope he’ll do all three.
