    Re: OU headed to Pac 10

    Really hoped they would head to the SEC; it would sure be a better fit.

    Re: OU headed to Pac 10

    Hold on... here we go!

    Why is OU waiting to hear what Texas' intentions are... if they are already announcing they are going to the Pac 10? Who cares what Texas' intentions are?

    JP better not be waiting around to hear what Texas is doing. It's each man for themself at this point... just get us in a conference... and quick!

    Re: OU headed to Pac 10

    This may do more harm than good. They will have to travel 4,000 miles round trip to get to the University of Washington. That is too much traveling for student athletes. It's hard enough to get athletes focused on academics now, this isn't going to help.

    After all this, you really think the universities actually care about the 'Academic' portions of their Athlete's careers? Think again.....

    Gotcha. I didn't look at it that way. I was looking at it as if OU went to the SEC, we could kiss KU (K-State too?) good-bye to the Pac 10.

    Re: OU headed to Pac 10

    I think the OU faculty would favor the Pac-10 affiliation over SEC any day of the week. To be in a conference with four superior academic universities - Stanford, Cal, USC, and UCLA - plus some other good ones - trumps the SEC, with Vandy.
