Stoops: This Year's Offense is One of Best We've Had

Oklahoma football coach Bob Stoops is reluctant to compare his current team to his previous squad.

It's pretty much his policy not to rank or compare any current player or system with anything from the past.

But the numbers are irrefutable — this year's OU football team is among Stoops' best offensive units.

“I don't ever say any particular one is the best or player is the best,” Stoops said, “but this offense is right there with any of the great ones that we've had.”

With just two games left in the regular season, the Sooners boast a .541 offensive efficiency, meaning they're scoring the equivalent of a touchdown on 54 percent of offensive possessions.

The gold standard offense in the Stoops era came during Sam Bradford's tenure from 2007-2009 with the best offensive numbers coming in 2008. The Bradford-led offense finished the season with a .571 efficiency. With the help of running backs Chris Brown and DeMarco Murray and wide receiver Ryan Broyles, the Sooners averaged 6.9 yards per play, 4.7 yards per carry and 14 yards per catch. (The Oklahoman)
