Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops said the media will not be allowed to speak to several players due to Austin Kendall’s comments.
Bob Stoops put his foot down after Austin Kendall’s regrettable comments ahead of the Sooners’ matchup against Ohio State. The backup quarterback had this to say about Ohio State’s defense:
“I think they have a really basic defense. I think we can go out there and, Baker, he’ll light them up, and I’m really looking forward to it. If my number’s called, I think I can do the same. I’m really looking forward to the game, it should be really exciting.”
Bob Stoops has now stepped in to say that several Sooners players will not be allowed to talk to the media in the wake of Kendall’s comments.
Stoops says because of Austin Kendall’s basic defense remarks, some guys won’t be available to talk to the media because he can’t trust them
