Coaches Hot Seat Analysis

First impressions tend to last, and our first impression of Bob Stoops was at a practice at the University of Florida when it was painfully obvious there were two great football coaches on that field, Steve Spurrier and Bob Stoops.  If one had to pinpoint Steve Spurrier's happiest time in the game of football, we would guess that time would be the 3 years that Bob Stoops worked as defensive coordinator at Florida.  After seeing Bob Stoops in practice and the Florida defensive teams he put onto the field, it was incredibly obvious that he was going to be a great head coach one day.  When you combine a tradition like OU with a coach like Bob Stoops, great things happen, and those great thing now include:  1 National Championship, 5 Big 12 titles, and 97 wins in 9 years.  Very simply, Bob Stoops is not only one of the best coaches in the game, and if he keeps this up, he will be one of the best coaches ever to walk a sideline.

 

There have been some chinks in the Stoops' armor, with a handful of uninspired games being played by his team over the past few years, and of course the debacle of the last four OU BCS bowl games hang over the OU football program.  We believe those are motivation and enthusiasm issues relative to the OU coaching staff, and thus they are very fixable, but the door is slightly ajar now on whether Oklahoma and Stoops are still on the rise or are they satisfied with their achievement and are now headed back down the mountain.  That brings us to he 2008 season.

 

Coaches Hot Seat Bottom Line

We predict Bob Stoops and Oklahoma will have a 12-0 record in 2008.  One of the most important factors in determining the success of a football team is the amount of enthusiasm that a head coach and his staff bring to bear to their jobs, because high enthusiasm almost always translates to motivated players and more wins.  We believe that Bob Stoops is fed up with the inconsistent play of his OU teams in the past few years, the Texas Tech and West Virginia game last season come immediately to mind, and that Oklahoma will be back in full-force in 2008.  In addition to a motivated coaching staff and team, the schedule is very favorable with the toughest games being on a neutral field or at home (TCU, Texas, Kansas and Texas Tech).  We believe that the favorable schedule combined with a reinvigorated Bob Stoops translates into a 12-0 regular season record, and it will then be up to Stoops to figure out a way win the bowl game.

 

2008 Coaches Hot Seat Prediction:        12-0

 

Will Stoops be back for the 2009 season?        YES
