Stoops at 100 (Scott Wright, Daily Oklahoman)
Barry Switzer needed to see just one game to know Bob Stoops was the right man to lead Oklahoma’s then-waning football program.
Entering Stoops’ 100th game as the Sooners’ head coach Saturday at Texas A&M, Switzer’s view hasn’t changed.
“I knew we had the right people in there after I saw that first game,” Switzer said. “Of course, I saw all the football previously.”
Since Barry Switzer (then the coach of the Dallas Cowboys) was almost solely responsible for John Blake being hired to head the Sooner football progam *shudder*, I don’t think I would have led my story that way (or let someone I edit lead it that way either).
