Oklahoma Sooners – 2008 Big 12 South Champions

New, 192 comments

With apologies to the Texas Longhorns I think I’ll celebrate a south division championship now. It is Oklahoma’s third consecutive (2006 – 08) and seventh overall (2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008). We knew that someone was going to get hosed and while all three teams had legitimate arguments (I really did understand them all – didn’t agree with them all but understood them) but in the end it was Oklahoma’s overall body of work that led them to Kansas City.

 

Now the Sooners must turn full attention to the Missouri Tigers and not worry, or even care, what the critics are saying. With the conference championship in Kansas City it will be like a home game for the Missouri Tigers and you know that they will be looking for both redemption in the 2008 season and revenge from the 2007 season. There are middle linebacker questions to address as well as coverage issues on one of the Big 12’s best receivers. We’ll get into that this week but for right now let’s just take a big sigh of relief.

 

Can I get someone to holla’ back – BOOMER!!!
