    Looks like we should have rooted for OU last night

    I thought rooting for OSU was the right call, but if OU won giving them the Big 12 automatic bid, I'm sure OSU would have been selected as an at large.

    Probably not. OSU would have gone to the Cotton Bowl because Michigan and Virginia Tech are much more deserving of a BCS bid...

    Re: Looks like we should have rooted for OU last night

    OU winning would not have gotten either OSU or K-State in. Had OSU lost last night they would have been shafted similarly to how K-State was shafted in the late 1990s and early 2000s. And OSU certainly deserved a BCS bowl much more than OU deserved one this year, even if it's not the championship game.

    How then do you explain a Va Tech getting destroyed in their conf. championship then getting a BCS shot? I'm sure OSU could have made if they were desperate enough to give the hokies a shot.

    Re: Looks like we should have rooted for OU last night

    Okla State would've gone to the Cotton bowl with a loss. 2 game losing streak...no wins since Nov 12.

    Sugar still would've picked VA Tech over a B12 team.
