Nothing wrong with win, but well enough wasn't left alone



“We held them to the lowest yards they’ve had all year, but again, that’s no consolation,” Mike Stoops said. “We want to and we need to play better defense if we’re going to get to the places we want to go.”

The Bears averaged 4.9 yards a pop for 51 pops. They converted 11 of 20 third-downs.

Also, OU won, the head coach passed a legend, and all of it happened on a day everybody should understand how much better winning is than losing.

The question in question couldn’t have been more reasonable. The fact Mike Stoops liked his defense a whole lot less than Bob Stoops made sense, too. He’s the coordinator, after all. The only thing that didn’t make sense was the bad face the head coach had to put on an otherwise fine day.
