Do the Sooners Deserve Rings?

New, 3 comments

We brought this up on Monday when talking about how the Texas loss will affect the Sooners and someone finally took the issue to Bob Stoops.

In 2002 Mack Brown ordered division championship rings despite losing 35-24 to the Sooners. Texas and Oklahoma finished with the same conference record but the Longhorns stayed home and watched Oklahoma beat Colorado in the Big 12 championship game.

On Tuesday Stoops was asked if he would do the same thing should the Sooners win out against Baylor and Oklahoma State and Texas beat A&M. Stoops reminded everyone that the standards in Norman are not as low as those in Austin.

"You know us better than that," OU coach Bob Stoops said. "Our standards are what they are, and they won't change."
