Welcome and I hope w beat the heck out of Oklahoma this year.
Report: Mike Stoops expected to join Texas staff
Feels a little strange.
But, it's just a name.
Mack had a stint with the dirt burglars, as well.
I expressed support and welcome him....but do feel a bit of taint
Maybe by hiring Stoops, we’ll get some reverse Mojo on the Sooners. We had pretty good luck with an OU guy named Royal.
Like a DEA agent infiltrating the Hell’s Angels motorcycle club. I don’t like it.
Mack and DKR. We'll adjust. lol
Stoop taint. Good or bad?
Can't see the good in it. At least it is just a position coach. If it was an analyst I would feel less angst.
Fake news. Per Brian Davis " Sark is not hiring Mike Stoops. He has someone in mind and hopes to finalize the offer today. Not link, sorry.
good catch Dhenry ... here is the link
The only way I would trust a Stoops is if we had hired Bob as HC and even then I would have my doubts.
Super K keeps saying Tosh Lupoi has an offer from Texas for LBs, and we are vetting Marve (see above^) only as a backup if Lupoi goes elsewhere.
He also thinks Tennessee star LB Henry To’o To’o comes to Texas if Lupoi does. He is already in the portal. He is former top-50 prospect who led the Vols in tackles during his sophomore season in 2020. Not that we need a good tackling linebacker or anything like that
Might be done
That Chop! Always the master of understatement.
The last 4 followers on Twitter for Tosh are Texas guys.
Maybe it means something, maybe it doesnt
We should know soon
I wonder if this an intentional leak to gauge sentiment for the hire?
Corporations and politicians do this sort of thing
If it was, they got the message
No Stoops, not now, not ever
Here is one version of the story -- it appears that the Stoops hire was ready to happen. Terms were agreed. But the people funding this operation objected. And then word leaked out to the masses (the "Orangefans") and they raised hell overnight with CDC and Hartzell even.
If so, it is Sark's first stumble.
Nor is it a good look for CDC, who apparently was willing to either ride with Herman in 2021, or replace Herman with James Franklin. Which is troubling on either account, if true. Luckily, we have some smart BMDs and they said "no."
I feel better now.
The new word of the day is schiano'd
As in, we schiano'd Mike Stoops on out of here
Davis = same story
That old saying that you can't be too skinny or too rich comes to mind.
I remember when we hired Langhi, there was optimism it would help us land some Polynesian players. We got one.
Maybe Lupoi is the real deal?
I think this^^^alot these days
Check out the time of this Brian Davis tweet
Sark was up early and wanted to immediately stomp out this Stoops news/rumor
My guess that stoops was the backup to the backup and had an initialed contract ready for signature.
