Barry Switzer honored for Special Olympics involvement: Barry Switzer won three college football championships and a Super Bowl, but there's still a unique quality about competitors in the Special Olympics that keeps him coming back. While he's used to winning at the college and NFL level, the Special Olympics aren't all about victories and defeats. Switzer says it's the innocence of Special Olympians that has led him to work with the charity for more than three decades. The former University of Oklahoma and Dallas Cowboys coach was honored for that involvement Tuesday night with the Knights of Columbus John F. Kennedy Community Service Award.

Switzer expects Stoops to surpass his records: Former Oklahoma coach Barry Switzer thinks current Sooners coach Bob Stoops will one day surpass his accomplishments at OU. "Bob will someday break my record because he's a smart enough guy to know that you don't leave Oklahoma when you have Oklahoma," Switzer said Tuesday night while accepting a community service award from the Knights of Columbus. "There's no pro job out there worth a damn." Switzer went 157-29-4 with the Sooners, winning national titles in 1974, 1975 and 1985 before resigning under pressure 20 years ago. He went on to win a Super Bowl with the Dallas Cowboys, but still lives near the Oklahoma campus in Norman. (
