During a stop in Tulsa during the Sooner Caravan tour, Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops made some comments which are likely to whip the SEC sycophant media into a frenzy, even if what he said has more than a hint of truth. Stoops’ grand claim? The SEC is more myth than reality.
Per the Tulsa World, Stoops had the following to say about the vaunted SEC:
“So they’ve had the best team in college football,” Stoops said. “They haven’t had the whole conference. Because, again, half of ’em haven’t done much at all. I’m just asking you. You tell me.”
“It depends on who you want to listen to,” Stoops said. “Listen, they’ve had the best team in college football, meaning they’ve won the national championship. That doesn’t mean everything else is always the best.”
“So you’re listening to a lot of propaganda that gets fed out to you,” he said. “You’re more than smart enough to figure it out. Again, you can look at the top two, three, four, five, six teams, and you can look at the bottom six, seven, eight, whatever they are. How well are they all doing?
“What’d we (the Big 12) have, eight of 10 teams in bowl games this year? Again, you figure it all out.”
If you listen really closely, you can hear Clay Travis foaming at the mouth. Regardless, there is a bit of truth to what Stoops says, even if it’s not delivered in the most delicate way. That won’t stop the outrage and backlash, however. SEC fans and media cheerleaders are among the most thin-skinned people on the planet. Well trolled, Bob.
