Bob Stoops’ recent SEC comment ruffled some feathers around the country’s most powerful conference, but Oklahoma’s head coach can take comfort knowing one man has his back: Charlie Weis.
It’s been a week since Stoops took the power of the SEC to task, telling the Tulsa World that the league’s perceived dominance is the result of “a lot of propaganda that gets fed out to you.” Yet despite the SEC claiming seven straight BCS national championships, Weis, the former Florida offensive coordinator (2011) and current Kansas head coach, said Stoops actually has a point. In an interview with ESPN.com, Weis said:
“Do you know the stats? In the SEC, the record of the good guys and the bad guys? [...] I’m just sayin’, you look at the bottom of our league and the bottom of their league, just going based off the numbers, there’s validity in what he said. I’m just going based off the numbers, I mean, I’m a numbers guy. Just based off the numbers, you’d have to say he’s got a point.”
