He will run out of the tunnel in front of the team and then stand behind the visitor's bench during the game. They are training him to trumpet on cue so we don't have to use the PA elephant sounds anymore.

If the SEC takes OU than they have to take OSU also. 14 teams is enough and there is no need to make the conference tougher than it already is. OU (as well ad OSU) belongs on the Big 12.

Not happening. As expansion continues. I think it's a better chance that teams like Texas and OU go independent than just join a conference. They both have their own networks as it is, which is in large why the Big 12 is suffering. The 2 cornerstones of the conference don't want any part of a Big 12 network. It's basically a money grab right now. They don't even want other teams in the conference to make it 12, because just adding teams means less money for each team in the pool.
Only way the Big 12 expands are for major major programs to enter. A program like FSU or something.
Won't happen. OU asks Texas' permission for everything.
I've said it before in other threads, Oklahoma and especially OSU have little to offer the SEC. There is just no upside.
Nobody is going to travel to Oklahoma. Texas Tech and Mizz are far enough. I'd much rather pick up a Virginia and an FSU (won't happen) and then shuffle the divisions up.
I have no interest in OU or any other Big 12 team joining the SEC. I agree with others here if more expansion is inevitable then let it come from the East.
Ask me about my vow of silence.
The Kentucky Mustangs poster in this thread has some interesting posts any time something big happens in college football. His feeling is that the SEC looks to UNC and UVA for expansion. Despite how you may feel about the board, this thread is a good read.
To the OP....I don't see what OU offers the SEC. I would have rather had OU than Missouri but that deal is done. One thing that I truly believe is that OU and Texas fail to realize just how little anyone outside of OK/TX really cares about either of them. They are huge fish in their own little pond and I know Texas has tons of $$ but I think they both may have hurt themselves by staying in the B1G.
