Video: Bob Stoops Apologized To Oklahoma Fans After His Team's Performance

After Oklahoma's home loss to Ohio State, head coach Bob Stoops apologized to fans.

The Sooners were thoroughly outclassed by the Buckeyes on Saturday night - and the loss may have put a dagger in Oklahoma's College Football Playoff chances. Bob Stoops, at his post-game press conference, said that he plans on keeping his team moving forward in a positive direction - focusing on winning the Big 12.

Here's a transcript of Stoops' comments. He made it clear that his team needs to improve in Big 12 play.

"All of us together we're near good enough. We've got a lot of work to do if we're going to have any chance to win the Big 12. We'll keep a positive attitude. We'll keep working to improve. We will do our best to have a better showing when we get back on the field here in a couple of weeks."

"Our football team, and I take responsibility - not near good enough in a big game. Sorry to disappoint the fans and not give them - I'd never say a better effort because that's not the case. We just need to play better in a lot of areas and that's what I take responsibility for. Felt we got beat really in all phases of the game."

Ohio State, meanwhile, looked like a national title contender. It'll be interesting to see where the two teams go from here.
