Oklahoma Sooners football coach Bob Stoops was a little ticked on his radio show earlier this week when the subject, again, was brought up that the Sooners would be facing a natural letdown in Saturday's game against the TCU Horned Frogs after dramatic victories over West Virginia and Oklahoma State.
The overtime victory against Oklahoma State set off a long postgame celebration at Owen Field. Oklahoma's season, and maybe its reputation, seemed ready to go over a physical cliff had the West Virginia and OSU games not been steered away from the abyss by last-second touchdowns.
But as far as letdown at 11 a.m. Saturday in Fort Worth, against a 7-4 TCU team?
"I don't get that," Stoops said Tuesday. "I'm really tired of hearing about it, to be honest with you."
Stoops said he's always preached that the more you win, the bigger the games get.
"We've got a big challenge in front of us, on the road, a chance for the Big 12 championship. What more do you need? To me, it's the biggest game of the year, by far."
