Personally, if I were an islander, I'd be insulted to read that.
First reaction...what does Bob care? some parts of the big-12 experience may take a while to wash off.
any relation to Kai?
Gonna be fun to recruit against them, Oregon State, and Washington extensively.
GL with that buddy. You gotta beat the top dog to be the top dog. Cabral aint going anywhere.
We are in a different conference, and our new stoops is Mike.
And the Arizonastani, too.
I´m fairly certain Cabral and Tui will be up to the challenge.:nod:
I was the same "Why does OU suddenly care about Hawaii when they have VIP access to Texas?"
D oh! Mike Stoops. My bad
Funny, didn't we just sign like 3 of the top 5 kids from Hawaii in 13 days? Good luck Mikey!:thumbsup:
Good ol' Stoops family.
It sounds to me like they're putting a lot of eggs into the Polynesian basket. Three assistants with Poly ties? You gotta figure that they'll get some, but certainly not all of the best talent from the islands. After that, what are they doing? I'll take our approach.
Plus didn't we get the top three from hawaii this year?
Can I third this? No one out-recruits Cabral in Hawaii. I think this past recruiting cycle made that clear. I loved Embree's story about Cabral and flipping Tuumalo. I think that says everything that needs to be said about our staff's island recruiting skills.
Sounds like they will put a big focus on recruiting Polynesian players, but Akina can recruit/coach with the best of them. Not entirely sure about the other guys, but Akina has contacts all over Texas from his long tenure there. He will help them reel in players from all over and was a really good hire for them..
Might be a difficult chore since they can't even own arizona. Good luck, mikey.
What a dumbass. According to Rivals, AZ didn't even pull in a single top 10 Hawaiin player. Colorado reels in 3 with 2 weeks of recruiting time. Yeah I think we know who "owns" the islands.
Bob Stoops recruting Hawaii..... now thats really funny....
I know he basically gets seconds to Texas for the state of Texas which is huge, but Polenesians are a different animal, love watching their work ethic.
Bobby "I talk like John Wayne" Stoops might want to look over his shoulder. Okie lite is closing the recruiting gap a bit.
