    Many on the OU campus want to see the Sooners join the Pac-12, and Bob Stoops has expressed continual excitement about the prospect.

    What? Everything Stoops has said has insinuated he would rather stay in the Big 12 with no championship game. Of all people Stoops knows how much of a trap a conference championship game is. This year OU has to get by Texas, A&M and OSU and they're playing for national title. If they go to the PAC-12 they would have to travel all over the western half of the country and still beat someone like USC or Oregon in a championship game to have a shot at the title.

    How is this thread productive or beneficial at all. Unless, all who say the Big 12 is doomed go to this thread and stay off the other ones.

    Yes, because whenever I start a campfire, I know once I see smoke I can immediately put my feet up & grab a beer. My job is done, that log is smoking, the campfire is roaring.

    Re: ***Official Who's Wanting to Leave the Big XII Thread***

    I don't know if OU gets to the Pac-12 without Texas and so on and so forth.

    Really, every move any school can make seems to depend on at least one other school or conference. That's why it's so maddening, because there's not simple "if a happens than b happens" logic to follow.

    It's like that arm pretzel game you used to play at camp as a kid, except no one is allowed to talk to each other. I think it's the uncertainty of what happens next that keeps everyone else from making a move, or at least keeps the process moving VERY SLOWLY.

    They won't go away until we have 12 members again. Then they will start up again in May-June.

    They are starting their own network, leaving would be not only a waste of money and time, but stupid.

    Dave Sittler: Bob Stoops pondering life without a Big 12 | Tulsa World


    From the article:

    He confirmed Tuesday that membership in a Pac-16 still excites him.

    "Think about it," Stoops said. "A (league) championship game in the Rose Bowl, going to USC to play, the Rose Bowl and playing UCLA (the storied stadium serves as the Bruins' home field) ..."


    Stoops also still believes if the Sooners eventually head west that it's vital to take at least three Big 12 teams with them.
