NORMAN, Okla. - Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops was a bit late for his regular noon, Monday meeting for his weekly address.
While out recruiting in California, Stoops had a hard time getting back to Oklahoma City, due to fog in the area.
His brother Mike stepped in until Stoops could arrive.
And here are a few other things we learned Monday from Norman.

It was another scoring barrage from senior Cameron Clark. The Sooner forward had 22 points—12 off of his four three-pointers—to go along with eight rebounds in Friday’s 101-81 victory over Arkansas-Little Rock. Clark’s game was multifaceted.

NORMAN, Okla. - The Oklahoma football team had arguably its best win of the season Saturday at Kansas State.
It was the best the offense has looked since October. The defense made all the necessary adjustments in the second half. Jalen Saunders and the special teams were close to perfect. It all resulted in a 41-31 victory that pushed OU to 9-2 on the season.
