We all need a little affirmation from time to time. Even the Oklahoma Sooners, who have been on a seemingly scorched earth campaign to discredit former head coach Lincoln Riley, who left the Sooners for a gig with the USC Trojans late last year. It gets weirder.

Earlier this week, former Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops, whose winning but mediocre tenure preceded Riley’s altogether extremely successful tenure as head coach, took to the Oklahoma Legislature – (checks notes); yes, the state Legislature – to send another blow Riley’s way.

“The past year, I’ve been given way too much credit jumping back in when Lincoln Riley left,” Stoops said on the floor. “My initial message being called off the golf course on that Sunday to get to the stadium as fast as I could. I got to thinking, and then I see the panic in our players’ face, I hear the panic in the whole OU community. And then I had to remind everybody immediately, ‘Timeout here. Lincoln Riley did not invent OU football.”

Can’t make this shit up, y’all. See the video for yourself.
