Question: Did the BCS title game give OU the upper hand in the Dorial Green-Beckham sweepstakes?

I won't even lie, that Bama defense looked flat out scary, and even LSU's defense looked better than any other defense (excluding Bama) that I saw this season. I know DGB had to be glued to his television watching those two defenses that he will potentially face next year, if he goes to Arkansas. Obviously if Bama is still on his short list, they may have gained the most leverage.

All indications are that Green-Beckham has pretty much narrowed his decision down to OU and Arkansas... that's what I've read. If that is true, going to Arkansas would mean that he has to play both of those defenses every year as well as some other pretty good defenses (i.e. South Carolina and Georgia). With Green-Beckham obviously being a future NFL prospect, there is two sides to this argument:

1. Go to Arkansas and show the NFL scouts that he can be productive in the most respected conference, playing against the nation's best defenses. But going this route he stands a chance of having some really bad games and possibly even a bad season. And to no fault of his abilities either... the elite SEC defenses just find a way to make average QBs look awful. And if the QB can't get him the ball, he looks bad.

2. Come to OU and pretty much become unstoppable. I don't think there is any doubt that this kid would start immediately if he came to OU. I think he also has a chance to shatter all of Broyles' records, as sad as that would make me. This kid has unbelievable size and ability. And dominating the Big 12 surely is something that the pro scouts will respect. But the uncertainty at QB (after the 2012 season) might be an issue for him as well.

We are about 20 days away from all speculation being put to rest. I just wanted to have some fun before the big announcement. Curious to know your thoughts. And of course I hope he goes with option 2 :)
