If OU doesn't want to be in the Texas Ten err Nine anymore, that's on them. They only have two choices, as I can see it (three, I guess, if you count the laughable 'independent' notion): stay in the Texas Nine or go to the Pac-12/14/16. They don't want the SEC (and I don't know if the SEC wants them) and the Big Ten doesn't want them. The idea of OU going to the ACC or Big East is ridiculous. It's not going to happen. So it's left to the Pac to either accept Boomer or not. OU's not driving the train on the demise of their conference, Larry Scott is. (Don't tell Kenny Starr that.) That means that he doesn't have to acquiesce to a single one of OU's demands. He doesn't have to take T. Boone state, he doesn't have to grab OU now, and he doesn't have to expand to 16 right. this. moment. OU has very limited options, even though they want the morons south of the Red River to think they have tons. I'll admit that a large part of me wants the Pac-12 to stand pat for as long as possible, while the Texas Nine slowly dies over the course of 7 or 8 years. But I also believe strongly that acting right now - especially if we take OU and Okie St (and God forbid UT and Tech) - is the wrong move for the conference. I know that most people will respond to this with "Larry Scott is smarter than you, don't worry about it". And that's fine, because it's true. I just don't want to be looking back on this with the same feeling of disappointment as I have when I think about the stupid mistake to let the SWC refugees into the Big 8.
