Oklahoma’s biggest cheerleader at the Final Four in Houston is its national champion-winning head football coach.
Bob Stoops and his wife, Carol, are at NRG Stadium cheering on the Sooners against Villanova. And when I say “cheering,” I really mean it.
Early in the second half, Stoops rose to his feet, urging fellow OU fans and students to get up and cheer with him, hoping to propel the team to a comeback.
Bob Stoops only person standing in OU section. Giving the ole, ‘Let’s Go!’. Yes, that Bob Stoops.
