Mike Stoops has been fired as head coach of Arizona

I think a bunch of us here who are still big fan of Mike Stoops, sadly saw the writing on the wall with this one.  Arizona made it official today after their disappointing 1-5 start to the 2011 season.  I'm sure this will lead a bunch of OU fans to call for his return to his brother's side, but I wouldn't get your hopes up.  Not saying it can't happen, but I just don't think it's very likely.

Regardless, we're all still behind Mike and wish him nothing but the best.  Wish it would have had a different ending, but we know you'll come out of this with your head held high.  Good luck Mike!
