Hate to tell you, but there’s no “recruiting pitch” to be gained by going to the sec. Conference is already too big, and play each other so seldom they aren’t really much of a conference. Schedule at least 9 conference games every year, and you might be taken seriously
That’s funny...sec teams won’t schedule tough out of conference games. Gotta save room for mighty Appalachian State. Your scheduling is a laughing stock....
Hilarious! Obviously you haven’t checked records. Texass isn’t “second best” in the Big XII, they are middle of the pack. OU has played your top teams 11 times this century, only one, LSU, has a winning record. Alabama, king of the sec, is a pitiful 1-3.
Seems like I recall a recent Cotton Bowl where an OU team manhandled a “powerful” Florida defense. OU has a winning record against SEC teams, actually pretty lopsided.
And yes. 5-0 Baylor would be top ten if they were SEC, but that’s simply because the SEC is overhyped courtesy of ESPN, who has the TV rights to SEC, so of course they are going to hype them. A&M was still top 25 sitting at 3-2. SEC plays the weakest non-conference schedule of anyone, it’s a laughing stock, so yes, you are exactly correct, Baylor at 5-0 WOULD be ranked, simply because they were in the SEC...the first games are non-conference, so that says much about SEC being overhyped.
Not everyone.....not even close. SEC’s top team(s) are good, but the middle to bottom is worse than others. SEC generally does not fair well in bowl games, which is pretty telling.
Not a whorns fan, but don’t pull “we didn’t care”. If it were true, that’s even a sadder commentary. Texass just had the better team that night.
Obviously never been to an OU v Texass game. Nothing is close, but you’d only know if you’ve been. As they say, it is much more like a bowl game that occurs mid-season. Georgia/Florida is the only thing even close with the divided stadium.
First: Get the quote correct. What Hurt’s said was he’d played in big games before. And the author of the obviously has never attended an OU v Tex game. The fact the stadium is split is exactly what makes the game so much more intense than any other rivalry. There’s a constant roar from one side or the other. Besides, these two programs HATE each other. Oklahoma and Texas are still technically at war (look up Governor Murray sends National Guard to Texas boarder). Sorry Alabama v Auburn, nice in-state rivalry, but it doesn’t come close...unless ya’ll have a literal war going on.
