Since the start of the year we’ve seen Mark Stoops and the coaching staff send in Max Smith or Jalen Whitlow from the sideline in relief of the other. If you listen to Mark Stoops’ quotes from after this past game it is clear he isn’t happy running a two quarterback system. In fact, Stoops…

Yesterday, we found out that Mark Stoops and Steve Spurrier used to vacation at the beach together (remember that time Spurrier wrote “Florida State sucks!” on Stoops’ back with sunscreen?
