Not really.  We have Don James.  Although not current, that is a legacy.

I seem to be hearing some college football tradition envy.

Nah.  Just having fun.

Speaking of coaches....
OU is the only team with more than 2 coaches with over 100 wins
Bennie Owen, Bud Wilkinson, Barry Switzer and Bob Stoops

Now... Lincoln. Houston we have a problem.

He seems to be the right man with the wrong name. This is not an unsolvable problem however. "Bud's" given name was Charles. So nicknames are perfectly acceptable.

Some options.
"Bubba"? Hes way too skinny. "Babe"? Although he's the youngest coach in the FBS at 31, Babe is a baseball name.

But what about "Buck"?  Buck Rogers/Buck Riley... kinda fits with his offensive style (okay thats a bit of a reach) but work with me here. Sounds kinda Texanish, and "Buck" fits well with some tall lanky guy from Muleshoe Texas.

I think someone should launch a campaign, Sooner rather than later.

You know what.  You have a point about that tradition.  How about Baby Face?  Losing seasons unless this is rectified.

Who is Stoops and why should I care?

mspart

He is a former University of Florida assistant football coach who left the university to become the head coach of some team out in the dust bowl.   :D

Don't forget his time under the greatest Iowa Hawkeye head coach of all time, Hayden Fry

Long and lanky and named Lincoln?  Are you talking about honest Abe?

meet your new dean of the ncaa football...Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz

An interesting scenario could evolve if Ferentz stumbles this season............

........with Stoops being an Iowa alum.  All of his kids have finished up at Oklahoma, no ties.  He's too young to quit the game.

Right now.... I think the chances of him ever taking a college job are less than 10%, and less than 40% of taking a pro job.

Good question.
My gut response is no. Bob has never been particularly loquacious, but he can have a pretty sharp wit on occasion. So, it wouldn't shock me, but I doubt it.

I like how the new coach instantly cried like a little baby.  Seems well suited for the job.
If every black male 18-35 applied for a conceal & carry permit, and then joined the NRA in one day; there would be gun control laws in a second.
