Yeah because you guys held down DKR with such a vengance last year.

Iowa State and Baylor in the same year!! That will always be some funny ****.

OK>>>>>TX.

Just because Red River Rivalry is played off campus doesn't mean it isn't still a Texas home game. It's in the state of Texas. A good portion of tickets will end up in Dallas residents hands. In other words, there will be more Texas fans in attendance each year than Oklahoma fans.

The same goes for all these quote on quote Neutral games that are played between teams/rivals from different states in one of their state. Another example of this is the Cocktail Party. It is still a UF Home game.

Texas leads Oklahoma 59-41.
Florida leads Georgia 3-18 since moving the game to JVille.

They both lead the series... Interesting... what a correlation...

Nope. The only way a ut fan gets a ticket on the OU side (or vice versa) is if a OU fan sells his/her ticket to a ut fan. Tickets are split down the middle and sold to each teams season ticket holders for first chance. I can't remember the last time OU (or ut for that matter) didn't sellout their allocated tickets.

Exactly. It is split pretty evenly.

Lets not forget that Norman is 192 Miles from Dallas
While Austin is 199 Miles from Dallas

And living in Dallas, I can say that there are tons of OU Alumni here

OU is the team to beat.
Oklahoma State and A&M aren't far behind, probably.
Baylor is still dangerous with Griffin.
Tech might do okay, it will just be young.
UT should do better than last year, how much is the question.
Kansas needs to do better or the fan base might get antsy.
Don't know a lot about Kansas State.
Missouri doesn't have Gabbert, but may be good anyway.
Iowa State may be a spoiler team.

(The order above wasn't a definitive ranking, except for obviously OU. The next two listed may be tied for two and three. The rest are very difficult to rank.)
Red River is obvious. But you have Mike Gundy working magic at Okie St. and Pinkel at Mizzou, add one or two more teams there and you have a solid conference comparable with others.

Hmmm...Big 12-2...my take

-I don't really see Oklahoma losing this year. Best chances are probably @Florida St and @Oklahoma St. 12-0, maybe 11-1.
-Texas A&M I think will only lose to Oklahoma. They benefit from having Texas, Oklahoma St, and Missouri all at home. They need to not overlook SMU to start the season though. 11-1 or 10-2.
-Oklahoma State will probably fall off a little from where they were last year. Some tough road games on the schedule. 9-3 or 8-4.
-Missouri also has some tough road games, and no Blaine Gabbert. 8-4, maybe 9-3.
-Texas will be better, but still rebuilding. Will have to see how far Gilbert has progressed. 8-4 or 7-5.
-Kansas State and Texas Tech maintain previous mediocrity. 6-6 each.
-Baylor begins its regression to being Baylor. RGIII is good, but still a soft team overall, with little to no defense. 6-6 or 5-7.
-Iowa State is still Iowa State. 3-9.
-Kansas is terrible. Fortunately, they have McNeese St on the schedule. 2-10.

Book it.

OU's President said they didn't want to embarrass themselves too close to home this year.

OU's fans said they wanted to get as far away from Oklahoma as possible. (who wouldn't?)

Oh, that's just to keep you Texicans out! We like to propagate the myth. The problem is you still come here anyway.

Also, after last year's season, I'd be real careful talking about embarrassment. From the national title to what was it?....... 5-7?! Whoa. Also, nice bowl game....oh wait.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!: D

This is greatness. Can you imagine the Baylor fans talking smack to the Shorthorns in their own stadium after the game? Priceless. Gotta love it too that their stadium is named after an Okie.

You Horns do have some redeeming comedic value.

Don't conveniently leave out that the Sooners have 7AP championships and the Horns have 3. I'll take the titles.

I think that's a very good analysis of the Big12-2 for this next year. OU has a very good shot at going undefeated this next season. If that doesn't happen they'll probably have no more than 1 loss.
