Marking the departure of OU and UT from the big 12 as definite is simply grasping at straws. OU has waffled numerous times about staying and leaving and the last time they were serious about leaving they were rebuffed.
OU and UT can make comparable money to the top schools in the big10 and sec by staying in the big12.
As for expansion, I seriously see UCF and Memphis being chosen over us. That’s why briles has to get us back on track so our tv ratings and winning on the field can improve significantly to make us more compelling.
