    AD talks to Stoops


    On Adrian Peterson's performance on Sunday

    Stoops: Talked to him yesterday, real happy for him. I just thought it was great. We're grading our tape and just had a chance to look in on him from time to time and kept seeing his highlights. Just pleased for him, and not surprised.

    I just think that naturally he's a young guy leaving here as a true junior, he's just naturally going to keep maturing as hard as it is to believe, physically. Those guys as they get into their mid-20s gain more strength, more power and really physically mature. And I don't think he's done. He's just an exceptional talent.

    I said to him I wasn't sure I'd think you've gotten faster just watching you on TV. He laughed and said, "Tell coach Schmidt I'm still doing my three-trippers after practice." So he's doing his conditioning exercises after practice and keeping his strength and endurance up. He looks great.

    On if he thinks Peterson is going to have a long career the way he runs, or does he need to run out of bounds more

    Stoops: Well, if it's like last week I think he'll have a long career. How good that defense is and who's hitting him has a lot to do with it. He said he woke up yesterday expecting to be really sore and he goes, 'Coach, I felt pretty good.' That's what happens when you rush for about 300. You're not on the ground a lot.

    Now, that's a scary thought.
    Stoops kinda knows his stuff at times.


    Nice find there, very insightful. where did you find this?

    Hx
    is that the real Hx
    where are you hiding the real HX

    Stoops has never held a talent back, in fact encouraged both Roy and AD to take advantage of their chances
