Eight and five isn’t going to cut it in Sooner nation, and Bob Stoops was the first to admit it. After a year of failed expectations, Stoops says his team is ready to make a run at a Big 12 championship.
“Again, excited, after last season finishing ‑‑ just overall having a disappointing year, when you’re used to 12 of the previous 14 years we had ten or more wins, and then you go 8‑5, and it’s not up to our standards and our expectations as a program for sure,” said Stoops.
“Quarterback battle, I know it’s popular for everyone to act like a certain guy has already got the job. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Trevor Knight and Baker Mayfield are in a tight battle, and Cody Thomas is right on their heels,” Stoops added.
“I think where we’ll grow the most is in the secondary, just with more experience and a year behind these guys and a year in the weight room and everything that they’re doing. I really like what I saw in the spring and in the summer,” said Stoops.
