Was listening to college football radio on XM this morning and they had Tramel on. I wonder how well connected that guy is to OU sports… my guess is not as connected as he might think. They asked him about his opinion on teams to add to the Big 12. He made arguments for Boise as well as UConn and Cincy… shot down Memphis. When asked about the Coogs, he said it was highly unlikely for two reasons:
Big 12 schools don’t want another legit team in Texas to recruit against in the state. This is not an original argument and will probably be the one view our administration will need to fight against.
Political infighting with UT - he tried to make the bleachergate argument but did a poor job of it. He mentioned bleachergate as a game a few years ago that was supposed to be held at NRG stadium. Poor research, Bear… it was 15 years ago, it was Reliant, and pretty much none of the administration that we had at that time is with the school today.
This thing is gonna be interesting to see how this plays out. I wonder what sort of timeline they have for the decision… I guess it will be a good distraction to get us through the next 6 weeks.
