Is this a celebration or a wake? It’s probably a bit of both.

Happy Friday, Sooner nation! Bob Stoops announced his retirement on Wednesday, and it still feels like we’re in the middle of something between a wake and a celebration after. I predict that the uneasy feeling will not go away any time soon for fans of the Oklahoma Sooners.

This edition of Hot Links is (almost entirely) dedicated to the man himself.

Without further ado, a Bob Stoops-packed edition of Hot Links:

OU Links:

  • Sooner Sports has whipped up a video chronicling Bob Stoops’ life and career. I’m not crying, you’re crying:
  • Stoops is getting love from across the country. His pal and mentor Bill Snyder even said he’d be nominating him for the CFB hall of fame:
  • Take a look at some of the other tributes Bob has gotten on Twitter:
  • We probably won’t ever see Stoops coach again. Broadcasting, on the other hand...
  • AD weighs in on the big news:
  • I feel bad for Patty Gasso and her newly-minted champion softball squad. Although there’s never a good time to announce a retirement, a day or two in the limelight would have been nice. That didn’t stop them from celebrating, though:

National Links:

‘Stick to sports!’

  • Today I learned that Indiana is a magical place that is full of wonders:
  • A new Big Thief album is out today! I’m a big fan of this band and I think they’re going places.
