Looks like he did to us what he did to UF twice. Agreed to all his demands and then he says nah.
I really don't think he has any interest in competing against the SEC and Clemson for top players. He was never one to recruit the south anyways. Stoops didn't really have to do that at OU, especially since they dominated TX during his tenure and he could pull plenty of talent from there. That said it almost seemed he at OU on cruise control for his last few years. All ways good enough to be in the conversation, but always ended up losing some games they shouldn't have. In the long run, you might be happier he doesn't take the job as I just don't think he is motivated enough to give his all at this point. Its why the XFL is perfect for him.
