OU/Texas & The SEC

Yep...Big 12 is finished...at least as a major conf. No disrespect meant towards the remaining members but even if they bring in new members they will still not be a major player in cfb. I feel bad for Gary Patterson at TCU...dude is one of the best coaches in the sport and he has owned Texas.

If I'm Baylor/TCU, I try to take control. Sure, the new Big XII will likely be little more than a Group of Five conference, but at this point that's probably better than becoming a "D-II" conference.

Mizzou only rivals are Kansas and Illinois. 🙄

Yeah I agree but the potential is there being a border state. Not much history to get excited about. Not much fanfare for either team winning because of the state of the programs.

In BaylorFans that’s basically their mentality. Would rather be a big fish in a small pond. 
 

I wish Anne Richards would have agreed in the 90s.

For a second, I forgot the PAC played last year... Lol

Hard to make the playoff or even be considered when you cant even play half of your games. What recruit wants that?

Pretty much. They and the B1G cancelled their season. A month after the other conferences decided to keep going they changed course and I really didn’t care other than Ohio State basically being gifted a spot in the playoffs.

Last time the Horns got to the CCG the Big12 refs made sure OU got a spot in the playoffs.  Riley should’ve sent the crew a thank you card.  It was extremely obvious

Oh wow! The ref card!  Should’ve known that would get played! 
 

That OU d was one of the worst in the country!  THE COUNTRY!!!

 If you can’t beat that team you’re not champion worthy.

I get it, but when is the last time anyone other than Alabama or LSU won the SEC fairly often?

Texas has missed on two coaches in a row, this is the problem. If Sarkisian pans out then UT can return to what it was in the 2000s.

Sark doesn’t have to be Nick Saban or Tom Landry. If Sarkisian can get his offense clicking, and always employee quality assistants Texas will be there, right where we want them to be. It’s definitely within reach.

Matt Rhule had Baylor on the verge of becoming a big fish in a big pond...until he jumped to the NFL. Now Baylor is back to where they were before Art Briles.

Whether you agree with it or not UT got ripped off in that game, 100%.

That got Mike stoops out the door and ushered in the Grinch era.  Winning that game in Dallas was actually to the whorns own detriment!

Ahh your boy good ole Jim Ross. Big Sooners fan. He has an awesome podcast called Grilling JR where he talks a lot about stuff from behind the scenes in the 90s and such. Amazing stuff, and he talks about OU football a little bit during the season.

Florida in 06 and 08. Auburn in 2010. 

So it's been 10+ years. 

Then again, in the last 10 years it's basically been Clemson, Bama, and then Ohio State that one year. More of an issue with College Football than the Big 12 or SEC.
