No matter how you slice this Bob Stoops will talk to Florida and take a serious look at it.
This has been well known for some time within the coaching staff and out. So, without question he will take a serious look at it.
I have been told that Florida has already made contact with Stoops, so the process is underway. There is no question that Stoops will take a serious look at Florida, but it is not a sure thing he will take the job.
If Stoops does take the job then Mike Stoops would be named the head coach. OU would want to keep a Stoops in charge and Mike is ready to be head coach.
So, I feel the next 48 to 72 hours are critical here. Keep your fingers crossed, but this is a real threat, not a pretender, but a threat to Bob leaving. This is the only real threat on the college level that Bob would leave OU for.
Folks, this is the one job that Bob has always wanted, but if he doesn't go then he is at OU for a long, long time.
We'll have more details as the story unfolds.
Will he stay or will he go?
