Oklahoma’s Bob Stoops explains why it’s so hard to stop Manziel
Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops joined the show to talk about their upcoming game against Notre Dame and more.
Stoops had strong praise for Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, who beat him in last season’s Cotton Bowl. “You can’t,” Stoops said. “At the end of the day, his ability to improvise is unmatched.”
Stoops talked about the trend of offenses around the nation. “Now all of a sudden you can block everyone in the front,” Stoops said, “and a secondary guy has to deal with the quarterback coming from depth. It’s making it more complicated for defensive coordinators.”
Stoops also weighed in on Notre Dame. He said that the Irish look very similar to last season — although they do miss Manti T’eo and Everett Golson.
Stoops is for paying players if they could figure out a fair system and a way to address the issues with Title IX.
