Oklahoma Sooners Football | Bob Stoops Would "Snap" Cell Phone During Game

The Oklahoma Sooners currently sit at 4-0 with the most recent win coming over the West Virginia Mountaineers in conference play. With the current state of Big 12 officiating, it's difficult to predict when an erroneous call could drastically change the outcome of a game. Now, possibly more than ever, Bob Stoops recognizes the need to eliminate mistakes. On Saturday, the Oklahoma Sooners racked up twelve penalties through four quarters of play.

However, there's more to contend with heading into the Cotton Bowl for rivalry week. Fanbases across the nation laugh at the Texas Longhorns and the current situation unfolding in Austin. Yet the reality is that Charlie Strong's four losses come to programs standing a combined 19-1 this season. Texas could have easily added two wins to their record had these two events not occurred...

Rivalry brings out the best of the competition and the Longhorns possess Jay Norvell, a close friend of Bob Stoops with an intimate knowledge of the Sooners and individual skill sets of players like Sterling Shepard.

Lastly, antics by a single entity in burnt orange gave rise to a new halftime rule for Oklahoma. Playing witness to a shellacking, freshman defensive back Kris Boyd retweeted an invite to transfer to Texas A&M. Needless to say, Sterling Shepard thought the rule was already in place.
