Something I noticed this weekend watching B12 games (and I really want it to be true)...

The B12 promo vids, only have 1/2 second blips of anything oU/Texas related. Blink and you'll miss it. Was this done on purpose? AND if it wasn't, why isn't it being done? Actually, I'd remove anything that promotes (showcases) oU/Texas whatsoever.
Or only highlights of the R8 making plays against those two jerks.
Like the tip drill interception off the sideline where the goon gets hammered as he watches our defender run by.

Piedmont, OK
No doubt. Don't get me wrong, Arkansas isn't chopped liver, but we'd have more success against them than UT-Norman
Dont think that would happen now. I watched them give the Horns a woodshed whipping and their Defense is impressive. They are fast, hit hard and swarm to the ball. Given our O-line play, they would eat SS for lunch.

Also noticed several kids from Tulsa that played. Why are they playing in Fayetteville instead of Stillwater?

SMU money still runs rampant. EVERY major family in Dallas has SMU ties, and the entirety of Highland Park/University Park has SMU ties. SMU is the hometown team for anyone that grew up around Dallas, and is over the age of 40. If you don't believe fans will get rabid for them, just look what happened a few years ago with their basketball program. Pro athletes and celebrities were showing up every night, and the town was talking about it daily around the water cooler.
No one gives a s**t about SMU or what the topic of conversation was around the water cooler in specific Dallas suburbs, sorry bud.

Ya we wouldn't want any of that right now, but that's true of a lot of schools at this moment.

I'm not a fan of all Texas schools in one group together.

Im curious as to why you feel that way and what you’d consider a better alternative?
I think that Texas schools just all playing each other most of the season, will increase their perception in the eyes of recruits. This will make it harder to pull those recruits to OSU.

The term may mean a human, but the mascot is a bird.

The origin of the Jayhawk is rooted in the historic struggles of Kansas settlers. ... The name combines two birds–the blue jay, a noisy, quarrelsome thing known to rob other nests, and the sparrow hawk, a quiet, stealthy hunter.

I am still trying to figure out how Bielema left and they aren't facing a 10 year offensive line ban? I didn't know such a thing was possible.

As I said, the mascot is a mythical bird.
