Stoops doesn't like idea of playing Iowa
The topic came up this week as Stoops' brother, Mike, prepares to coach Arizona in a game against the Hawkeyes.
Stoops says he'd "rather not" play against Iowa because he has so many good friends connected to the program, including coach Kirk Ferentz.
He said he has a similar feeling about playing Arizona because of the family connection and he felt the same way when his brother, Mark, was an assistant at Miami.
Stoops said the only time it would be worth such a matchup would be for a championship.
