To be among the best at Oklahoma is to be among the best in college football. Such dramatics are lost on Bob Stoops. Rarely have the pundits had it so easy. Under Stoops, Oklahoma has won 69 gamesspent 69 consecutive weeks in the national rankings, played in six bowl games, four of the BCS variety, and captured three Big 12 crowns. His team won the national championship. On a playing field leveled by scholarship limits and parity, this era stares down the Oklahoma standard and does not blink.
The achievement dulls the memory of what Stoops inherited. When he arrived in Norman, the proud Sooner program was five years removed from a winning record, four from bowl play.
Those atypical days of angst are so forgotten now that they might as well be mentioned with the land rush and dust bowl. Stoops has been characterized as a grounded family man, brilliant big-game coach, relentless recruiter, disciplined leader and a person with uncommon perspective.
His success emanates from a disciplined style true to his roots in the Steel Valley of Ohio, but he is far from inflexible. The principles to which he holds are the tried and true axioms of the sport During his time, OU has produced recordsetting passers and receivers, two 1,yard rushers, suffocating defense and special teams units that rank among the most dynamic in the land.
There are going to be some opportunities to compete against a lot of great athletes. Everything is in preparation for the outdoor season, and we are now at our third outdoor meet.
We are rolling with the outdoor season.
For the people who will compete here, they are going to see great competition. We should have a good weekend of competition, and we hope everyone wants to take advantage of it. Where we want to be as a program is we want to be a program that can consistently line it up. We have a track meet on an average of three out of every four weeks, and I would like to see our team ready every time they have the opportunity to take the track.
Competition-wise, it would be closest to the Tyson Invitational during the indoor season. If we are ready, then, we have a chance to be right in the mix.
