Stoops Sooners Are Maturing, On And Off The Field

Posted: Updated:

Bob Stoops Sooners had a discipline problem the last couple of years.

Several players were suspended or kicked off the team for missing practice or classes.

It was such an issue that he talked about it last December at one of his Insight Bowl press conferences.

He says this current team has shown much more maturity.

"So far through the year we have been a more disciplined team, a more accountable team to each other." OU Head Coach Bob Stoops said, "In a lot of ways off the field as well as on the field.  To me you can be undisciplined off the field and think you're going to be disciplined on the field."

The Sooners look third straight win when they host Kansas this Saturday night at 6:00pm in Norman.
