Stoops also talked about how he's learned that he's not going to please everybody. That's true too. It's a give-and-take and take-and-give relationship between the media and a coach but I would say he isn't Lane Kiffin. He said on Wednesday that he has always made it clear when a guy will not play if he is injured and this season, he's right. He has been clear about it.
So being from Indiana, would OU fooball in your opinion be more comparable to IU Basketball or ND Football as far as fans intensity & interest goes to match the tradition of the programs?
That's a good question. Notre Dame football definitely has a high fan interest and intensity but when something goes wrong on a Saturday in the fall in Indiana, the conversation immediately turns to "well, there's always basketball season." So, I'd have to say basketball wins.
