Bob Stoops boasts about dominance of Alabama schools
Even in retirement, Bob Stoops continues to talk his smack.
The former Oklahoma head coach was the keynote speaker this week at the USO Mayor’s Luncheon in Mobile, Alabama ahead of the Dollar General Bowl. As he began his remarks, Stoops declared himself the Governor of Alabama and pointed to his recent Sugar Bowl wins over both Auburn and Alabama.
Coach Bob Stoops now up speaking. Calls himself the Governor of Alabama after beating Auburn and Alabama in the past Sugar Bowls. @mynbc15 pic.twitter.com/P2KV1gPW5B

Unfortunately, Stoops’ boast didn’t appear to be particularly well-received.
Stoops just called himself the "Governor of Alabama" after his last two Sugar Bowls. Didn't get the laughs

Indeed, Stoops, who announced his retirement in June after 18 seasons coaching the Sooners, topped Alabama 45-31 in the 2014 Sugar Bowl before beating Auburn 35-19 in the 2017 Sugar Bowl, his last game on the sidelines.
Of course, Stoops will never miss out on an opportunity to rip the SEC, and that is something that will continue well into his post-coaching phase.
