Recruiting took a brutal hit with Riley leaving.

Well this definitely took me by surprise.

Bringing in Stoops to coach the bowl game is a very smart move, and if the Sooners don't know what direction they want to go, then I could definitely see them asking Stoops to stay for next season, too, to stabilize the program and hold together the recruiting as much as possible.

I'm hoping and praying that this causes some OL (either recruits or players) to fall Texas' way. With 2 weeks before early signing day, this really sets the table for Texas to plug a ridiculous need.

There's a lot of smoke about Brent Venables returning to Norman.  Of course, there was a lot of smoke about Lincoln Riley going to Baton Rouge, and we know how that turned out.

If Brent is the guy, I would feel like it was a home run hire.

He would need to get a great OC, though.

Of all the rumors I've heard, I like the HC Venables with Jeff Lebby as OC one the best.  Might as well dream big.  Still need OL & strength coaches.

Venables has been a HC target many many times in the past ten seasons, seems to me he's smart enough to just coordinate a great defense and skip the drama

and with coordinator's salaries, who could blame him?

I've been a volunteer assistant coach for the Texas Longhorns going on three decades now. I have the uncanny ability to watch a replay and tell you which players suck and what play they should have run. 

I believe I've earned my shot.

I'm not on board with Lebby, despite him being an OU grad.
I still remember him being on the Art Briles Baylor staff and attending the OU-Tulsa game of 2015 as a the sideline guest of Tulsa's HFC Phillip Montgomery--who proudly proclaimed that Art Briles was like a 2nd father to him--dressed in Tulsa gear.  OU had him escorted out of the stadium
Seemed slimy at the time and it still does.

OK, who would you like to see instead?  I don't know if Lincoln's garbage dumped on Garret Riley but I like what he was doing at SMU.  He had Tanner Mordecai outperforming OU's 5 star QB's.
