Oklahoma’s home loss to Iowa State 38-31, in a game dominated by the visitors after they fell behind to the Sooners 14-0 in the first quarter, has brought out the stinking ugly in the supporters of the program.
The universal theme is the want by this so-called “we have your back” fan base is “fire” Mike Stoops. Coach Mike is the defensive coordinator at OU and the brother of former legendary head coach Bob Stoops. New head man for OU, Lincoln Riley retained Mike Stoops in his transition to the lead position this year.
The history of Mike Stoops as the leader of the defense has been good at times, with a National Championship in his brothers second year in Norman back in 2000, but his tenure has been spotty since his return to the Sooner program after a five year stint as the head man at Arizona in the PAC-12.
With today’s loss to the Cyclones, the heat is on to get Mike Stoops fired, the “sooner” the better. The internet is currently burning up on this move, the word on the streets of Soonerland is this man must go, and OU will never reach the highest echelon of a great defense with Coach Mike running the show. It could be considered brutal, but that would be an understatement.
