WOW...Do you honestly really truly believe that will be a better nicer or on par with Houstons or the Dallas stadium when completed?? Just in Oklahoma OUs Memorial Stadium (by far prettier and historical) seats close to 90,000 and the facilties include one of the largest indoor practice fields among a million other draws. The outdoor practice field is protected by black rod iron and sophisticated shrubs and flower beds...OSU has ugly pavement everywhere for parking! The jumbo screen will not even be half as big as UTor OU...Sorry that is just crazy! Boone-Pickens Stadium will be posh...But lets be real. OSU doesnt even have a championship. Good luck drawing in the best Texas players from OU, UT and A&M. OSU has Gallagher-Iba Arena which is one of the nicest arenas in college basketball. Why? Because they win...like OU and UT does in football.

MAYBE THESE OUGHT TO ANSWER A FEW QUESTIONS ABOUT WHICH STATE IS MORE DOMINANT FROM HIGH SCHOOL TO THE NFL.

[url=http://bleacherreport.com/articles/406568-ranking-the-10-best-states-by-2011-college-football-recruiting-prospects]Ranking the 10 Best States by 2011 College Football Recruiting Prospects | Bleacher Report[/url]


""Texas’ recruiting dominance is well known to most fans, but the number of players the Lone Star State produces is staggering.

Of the 12,853 players on FBS rosters last season, 1,714 (13 percent) came from Texas. Two cities - Dallas and Houston - produce one-fourth of all Big 12 players.""

TEXAS dominates all big 12 and more conferences are recruiting from it. SEC has a handful of TEXAS recruits starting and not to mention QB's too and take a look at the PAC 10 oregons qb and running back lead the high powered offense both from texas same with oregon st. with the roger brothers from houston and if you look at it texas probably has the most athletes in schools that are in big conferences. most starting qb's then any other state too. drew brees and austin native was overlooked by texas schools.. went on to purdue and the won a superbowl with the saints. TEXANS are everywhere.. recruit some and WIN.

I grew up in and around Austin, Texas, where the Longhorns were practically gods. I thought I had seen a thing or two and knew about what football loyalty was.

Then I moved away to go to college in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Oh. My. Freaking. God. These guys take it to an even higher level! It's like literally every other thing out of their mouths is about the Huskers! Well, football in general, both college and pro, but seriously these guys like talk nothing but football. Of course, I've been to a few Big Red games and I thought it was a really fun experience, but damn...

There is one other plus, though. Back in Texas, depending on what area of the state you're in, you sometimes have to be mindful of what shirt or hat you're wearing, lest you suffer a barrage of verbal smack LOL. For example, in the central part as well as many of the bigger cities, you'd fit right in with orange UT gear, especially in Austin, of course. However, farther out in the eastern region as well as the smaller towns, you might be good to switch to maroon A&M gear. Or if you're in the Waco area, green Baylor gear. Or if you're up in the Panhandle area, red Tech gear. And I'm sure there's at least one or two I'm leaving out.

In Nebraska, on the other hand, red Husker gear is universally supported across the whole state!
