His team wasn't good enough to win it this year offensively this year, defensively they were good enough IMP. You can have a great offense against sub-par opponents and be called the best team of all time. BUT When you play the really good teams it showed, Kansas St, LSU, I'll even through Bama in there to illustrate the difference in playing the big 12 vs the SEC. OU couldn't run the ball very effectively against these teams much less throw down the field. Bob Stoops can deny it forever for all I care, his offense was dominated like it had been use to doing to teams by the best and #1 Defense in all the land. He should wake up in cold sweats for being disrespectible to LSU for his comments at halftime. I said right after he said that on this very board that, Not only will his team not be #1 after tonight but his Defense won't either. He's still in denial that his offense was totally defeated when you look at the stats of the game. Its rather fortunate for OU that it wasn't any worse, Both mistakes hurt LSU made, but that td that we had on the opening drive would've made this game that much worse. If I was a coach, I would've been happy being in the championship game 2 out of 3 years, winning it the first one and that close on the second. I understand a coach wanting to win the 2nd and having thoughts and dreams about it but... I don't think he gives LSU's Defense any credit still!
