Bob Stoops mocks Texas A&M's non-conference schedule

The Big 12 hosted their media days at the Omni Hotel in Dallas this week, and Oklahoma Sooners head coach Bob Stoops had a lot of hot opinions. Stoops has been known to talk a little bit of trash regarding the SEC and their “best conference in football” pedestal.

He took aim at an SEC school that used to be a Big 12 rival, Texas A&M. In particular, Stoops called out A&M’s rather easy non-conference schedule to start the season with games against Lamar, Rice, SMU and Louisiana-Monroe.

It is interesting that he’d make that claim because A&M’s 2014 strength of schedule is ranked 5th in the nation while Oklahoma’s is ranked 93rd according to FBSchedules.com. Though that could have more to do with conference games than non-conference games and the difference between the Big 12 and the SEC.

Oklahoma plays Louisiana Tech, Tulsa and Tennessee of the SEC in non-conference play to open the season.
