Stephanie Kuzydym: Suspended players not likely to be reinstated soon

Of course we don't want to know about every other player of the 90 other players, but knowing about Roy Finch is legitimate. That's frustrating from a sense of our job is to ask questions and sometimes it seems like he wonders why we asks those questions and to outsiders it seems like he's mocking. Maybe he is. I haven't known him for that long. However, he talked Wednesday about how he talks and he said, 'Look this is just how I talk. My wife still doesn't even get it.' ... And they've been married a little over 25 years.

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.
