    As Coach Switzer put it, I've never seen a coach put on a uniform and take the field. There were way too many times that there were defensive players in position to make plays but just didn't git 'er done. The confusion on defense can be laid at his feet, but the defensive woes are not all on him. Unfortunately, bad coaching or not, he bears the responsibility. It comes with the position, and he just paid the price.

    3rd and 9 from the 20 and he has us in cover 2. At the snap both safeties bail to the endzone. Texas makes an 11 yard reception without a safety in the area. That’s coaching. The playcall and the technique.

    If he had been reading any of the stats of the defense, he should have recognized it was coming at some point. He could have left on his own.

    According to Dean Blevins, Stoops offered to resign after the game, but Riley declined.

    That's...odd.

    He should have been gone long ago. OU has turned into Texas Tech.

    Oh I'd imagine there were some phone calls between the end of the game and the announcement.

    At the very least, they talked to HR and Legal Counsel. Stoops was on a contract, unlike most University employees.

    Looks like it's official now: http://www.soonersports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=31000&ATCLID=211775153

    Ruffin McNeill takes over as DC and Bob Diaco takes over coaching the outside linebackers.
