Bob Stoops to FSU?

Rumor has it that the puppy kicker is going to be HC of Florida St

I guess Big 12 HCs never die they just go to the ACC

If true, this will be legendary for the Seminoles.  Stoops still has many years left in him.

If he brings his brother over to coach defense, then he's back in the same ol' trap.

I doubt that the story is true.

But I guess we'll find out soon enough.

I'm not sure I could see Stoops leaving the Norman area but I could definitely see him taking the FSU job.  He coached in Fla under Spurrier for years and he's still relatively young.  As bad as FSU has been lately it has to be squarely in the top 10-15 jobs around even if their facilities are not up to par as some in the media has led us to believe.  

I always thought he signed onto the XFL because Dallas is close to home and the pressure to succeed in the XFL would not be as high.  Maybe sitting around for two years has bored him and he's ready to up the ante, much like his mentor Spurrier did when he left UF for the NFL and then back to USC.

I started a thread on the ACC forum where this belongs. That said, in response to the preceding post, Bobby Stoops grew up in Ohio. Three of the Stoops brothers played defensive back at Iowa, Bobby, Mike, and Mark. Bobby said years ago he did not want to coach his own son. His son wanted to play at Oklahoma where he grew up. His son may still be on the roster as a non-scholarship athlete. 

In his playing days at Iowa Bobby Stoops saw how Coach Bob Cummings was treated by the fanbase when his teams went south, [I was there - real estate for sale signs appearing in their front yard] and how that played out and reflected on and hurt Bobby Cummings, Jr. who played QB. Coach Bob Cummings had been an offensive lineman on one of the 1950s Iowa teams that won the Rose Bowl.

Years ago, Bobby Stoops vowed he would not coach his own son because of his experience at Iowa with Bob Cummings, Jr. I believe his son's desire to play at Oklahoma probably motivated Bobby's early retirement as Oklahoma coach, and perhaps his son had not read the earlier sports articles on this topic. His dad was a real dad, said nothing because he wanted the best for his son, and retired.

I am speculating, but the speculation is an educated guess.

This belongs where ever a Big 12er wants to post it

Bob Stoops was a Big 12 coach  and gets a Big 12 post

Its just a rumor last I checked so nothing further needs to be said until we know for sure

FTR, Drake Stoops is a preferred-walk-on slot receiver who has had some catches this year.  He made a critical catch and run late against K-State that was called back for a block in the back.  Bad call on the official, IMO.

I think he'd be pretty successful there.  But does he really want to leave his cushy golf courses and whatnot?
