Bob Stoops, who suspended Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon for the entire 2014 season after Mixon punched a female student, on Wednesday said the punishment for Mixon wasn't enough, and had the incident occurred today, Mixon's dismissal from the team would be the only acceptable outcome.
"After two and a half years, it's obvious [the suspension] wasn't enough," Stoops said. "But I feel like Joe has moved ahead in a very positive way.
"Two and a half years later, dismissal is really the only thing that's possible."
Stoops also discussed his reaction to seeing the same video of the incident for the first time in 2015.
"It was horrible," said Stoops. "I hated it. Hated it as much as anybody did. Absolutely."
Some will ask that if Stoops believes the only response now would be to dismiss Mixon, and he hated seeing the video of the incident "as much as anybody," why is Mixon on the team? It's a relevant question and it's not one with an easy answer.
