07:22 AM ET 10.03 | Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops is at it again, taking another shot at the Southeastern Conference. During a small session with beat reporters Wednesday afternoon, Stoops smiled while sarcastically discussing performances by SEC defenses so far this season. "Just a few years ago, we had all the quarterbacks," Stoops said. "And now, all of a sudden, we can play a little better defense and some other people can't play defense. Funny how people can't play defense when they have pro-style quarterbacks over there, which we've had. They're all playing in the NFL right now." When it was pointed out that Georgia's Aaron Murray has a high pass efficiency rating, Stoops said, "How's that happening? They're playing all those SEC defenses."

I've always said I would love to see Spurrier, Stoops, Leach and Saban as a 4-man panel answering dumb media questions. The responses would be classic.

There was a SEC beat reporter trolling at the Big 12 media days, asking head coaches how their offenses would stack up against SEC defenses, then disputing the responses. Stoops was annoyed, but the way Art Briles handled the questions was hilarious!

Stoops does not handle stupid questions well. I need to find the link to last years press conference when one moron from the Tulsa World got him on a tirade lol
