Bob Stoops is stepping down as head coach of the Oklahoma Sooners after 18 years. For many fans, he was one of the most successful coaches in Oklahoma history. But many others are looking at his failure to win the national championship on multiple occasions; they don’t see why he receives so much admiration. What do you think?  🏈

Apparently, winning 10 Big 12 Championships and a national championship makes you overrated—not! When Stoops took over Oklahoma, the program was going through a rough stretch of three consecutive losing seasons and a four-year bowl drought. 

Stoops turned the program around, making the Sooners a national powerhouse in a year. He has also been successful against Texas and Oklahoma State, the Sooners’ biggest rivals.

Since Stoops took over, Oklahoma never had a losing season, and never missed a bowl game during his tenure. You’ll be hard-pressed to find another resume anywhere else in college football. Stoops is rated appropriately as one of the greatest Oklahoma coaches of all time.

Okay, so Stoops won one national championship in 2000. How many national championships has he won since with a talented team? Zero. He went to three other title games since 2000, and came up empty each time. So much for “Big Game Bob.” That’s not good enough for the fourth highest paid coach in college football.

His inability to consistently win on the big stage wasn’t limited to national championships. His 18 bowl appearances are impressive, but he only managed to win half of those games. That kind of mediocrity doesn’t deserve the kind of swooning people seem to do around Stoops.

Stoops is a good coach, but to call him one of the greatest coaches is a stretch and a half. He didn't live up to his big game name, and it should result in a different title: one of the most overrated coaches of all time.
