The funny thing is in just a few years they will long to get to the rusty old Cotton Bowl to get that win to keep them above .500.
I think I'd be more concerned with Cincinnati, BYU and UCF coming in and taking OU's place in the Big 12 before, I'd start forecasting a .500 record for a team that typically beats every SEC team it plays that isn't the best team in the SEC and/or the national champion. The only SEC teams OU's lost to recently that weren't the SEC and/or National Champion were in double overtime to SEC runner up Georgia and to A&M in 2011. Y'all are about to have your hands full. Success in the new Big 12 will be no guarantee especially with the offense you all are trotting out there so far (Same goes for OU with whatever joke offense was trotted out there under Rattler. Hopefully CW proves to be more than a flash in the pan).

I think I'd start worrying about winning more than a single conference championship every 25 years before talking crap about the team who's won 14 in the last 25 years. They will win less in the SEC but will be the only team that consistently competes with Alabama for it year in and year out.

Same to you. Going to be tough for you all to be much better than that when one good team is replaced by 4.

Though maybe it goes the other way and y'all figure out how to lose fewer than 3 games more than once or twice a quarter century. Time will tell.
Recent records in goonerville against SEC teams should really get you all excited.

Cincy and OU are on the same level right now. We're just replacing one top 5 team with another. So, no big deal. Enjoy your occasional flash in the pan season in the SEC.

Interesting. We took care of Boise State (something you are not familiar with) in Boise and they took down #10 BYU in Provo. Seems we're looking alright.

Oh cool! How’d you play their 2006 team?!?! How’d your defense fair against Chris Peterson and Brian Harsin?!?

Did you get hit with that darned Statue of Liberty too?

The running back propose to his girl afterwards???
