With Football season right around the corner, we here at Dejuiced! have decided to take a look at the coaches in the NFL and college football to see how well the fans approve of them. Today we look at Mike Stoops.
Can you say hot seat? [Mike Stoops is the head coach of the Arizona Wildcats. He is also the younger brother of Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops. Unfortunately, he hasn't had the same success at Arizona that older brother has had at Oklahoma. Mike's records since he become head coach in 2004 are:
- 2004: 3-8, 2-6 in Pac 10
- 2005: 3-8, 2-6 in Pac 10
- 2006: 6-6, 4-5 in Pac 10
- 2007: 5-7, 4-5 in Pac 10
And of course he takes his frustrations out on his rival Arizona State. Saying that they accept recruits with lower academic standards so obviously that's how they've been able to succeed. Sure Stoops, whatever helps you sleep at night.
Each year at Arizona, he has had wins against teams in the top 25. In 2004 against #20 Arizona State, 2005 against #7 UCLA, 2006 against #8 California, and 2007 against #2 Oregon.
