Everything going Bob Stoops' way heading into season

NORMAN, Okla. -- Bob Stoops was creative and innovative. He was liberal and daring. Fluid and flexible. Not just in January's Sugar Bowl, a 45-31 victory over Alabama that boosted morale and did more for positive public relations in Oklahoma than a Kevin Durant MVP speech, but all last season.
