    If you could trade athletic programs with 1 big 12 school...

    who would it be?
    Not history or recruiting advantage, just coaches (his recruiting advantage does come with him), current players and incoming recruits.

    For me:
    Football only: Texas

    - I know Colt McCoy is leaving in 1 year but they are national championship caliber for next year, and deep as hell. I don't know who they already have to replace McCoy but I am sure there is someone.

    Basketball only: Kansas

    - Set up for a great season next year, a great solid base of young players that are in no danger of going to the NBA, and a coach (Self) who has a history of winning and recruiting no matter where he is.

    Both Basketball and Football: Texas

    - KU Bball = UT Football : KU Football ≠ Texas Bball
    In terms players currently in the system who can win longterm. KU bball matches up with UT football. But while KU football has been better of late it will take a huge hit at the end of this season when they lose most of their offensive skill players while Texas bball has a better fondation for more years than 1.

    Nobody. Because the elation we will feel when we finally break through and win a Big 12 football title will be so much greater than just switching to a consistent contender.

    Boomer Sooner!!! I like the song and Barry Switzer lurking around.


    Problem with Texas is they play weaker and almost always falter whereas Oky is in it more often to win.

    I can't remember the kid's name, but the Horns received a commitment from the top QB prospect in the state of Texas this last year, and he grew up in a suburb of Austin, so it's not like Mack Brown had to work too hard to get him.

    We agree! I'll trade budgets with Texas and be a happy camper.

    Actually I'd trade budgets with Mizzou and be a happy camper.
