Oklahoma and Texas may not like each other very much, but Sooners head coach Bob Stoops isn't letting that cloud his judgment of the 2015 Longhorns. Monday, he actually stood up for Charlie Strong & Co., citing UT's overly difficult schedule as the most "overlooked" reason for the team's 1-4 record. He noted that all four of the teams Texas lost to are now ranked.

Here's video, via OU Insider.

Texas reporter Taylor Gaspar transcribed what Stoops had to say. 

Stoops has always been a stand-up guy, so it doesn't come as a shock that he's finding the silver lining on Texas' season ahead of their matchup this Saturday. Still, you know he wants to give the Longhorns their fifth loss.
