Stoops won't bite on SEC question: 'I cause enough waves'

by Ryan Aber Published: September 1, 2014

At his Monday press conference, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops was asked about the SEC’s performance last weekend against teams who run the spread offense, including Alabama’s struggles against West Virginia.

“I’m not gonna sit here and talk about that. You guys are more than capable of doing that without me,” Stoops said. “I cause enough waves. This isn’t the out-of-season where I cause waves.”

Stoops is regularly asked about the SEC, especially as it relates to the Big 12 and has made headlines with plenty of those responses in the past.

He did, though, say he wasn’t surprised about the strong performances from Oklahoma State and West Virginia in losses to national powers.

“That should be obvious to everybody—the strength of the league and the depth,” Stoops said. “Both those teams, we knew were better than what people thought of them and had them ranked. These scores and the way they played did not surprise me at all.

“Unfortunately, I’m not allowed to go anywhere and go bet on them. I would’ve liked to.”
