Bob Stoops says no momentum among coaches for playoff system
Stoops weighed in on Baylor QB Robert Griffin III. “He’s a great player,” Stoops said. “He’s a special one when you consider how well he runs with the ball.”
Dan asked Stoops if he thought there might be an eight-team playoff.
“I don’t think so,” Stoops said. “The timing of it with finals. The added games. Getting rid of bowl games. I don’t see a lot of momentum for that.”
Stoops said he thought 70 percent of coaches would vote against a final four playoff: “You have to remember these bowls are an experience for fans, your administration, your ticket staff … there’s only going to be one of those. You’re not going to do it each week. I don’t see a lot of momentum.”
Stoops said Thursday, Thanksgiving, is a regular work day for him. He said he gets home at 6 p.m. and eats with everyone. But he said it’s later in the week, so his gameplan is set, and he won’t have to go back to work.
