Bob Stoops harped on tackling and consistency at his weekly press conference Monday following a 24-17 defeat to rival Texas. He also didn't shy away from calling out his team when it came to questions about OU's demeanor in the Red River Showdown.
“We did our part. We showed ‘em a hundred times,” Stoops said, referring to the suggestion that the Sooners came out flat. “We went through the last two years ago, the Texas game and where they’re ranked and where we’re ranked and what’s happening. You show it to ‘em, you show it to ‘em, we even showed 10 minutes of the game, of them beating us. So they’ve got to choose to be ready to play.”
“The bottom line is we got out-executed, so I didn’t feel [like the players came out flat]. We had a great week of practice, I felt like we came into the game knowing we needed to play well.”
