Sooners can bury bad history by burying Notre Dame

(Continued)

NORMAN —

Maybe he should.

Look at the questions OU’s already answered this season. Consider the confidence and momentum the Sooners must be riding. Maybe it’s time to leverage it all, finally dashing Irish demons.

Because Notre Dame beats OU. It’s what it does. No program should have a 90-percent win rate against the the Sooners, but the Irish do.

In seasons the Sooners are 70-19 against everybody else — 1952, ‘53, ‘57, ‘61, ‘62, ‘66, ‘68, ‘99, 2012 — they are 0-9 against the Irish.

Stoops wants all four quarters because he knows what his team can do. He says he’s not haunted by history but he should be because it’s his history, too.

It’s no time to beat the Irish. It’s time to bury them.
