Oklahoma Sooners Football: One of Oklahoma’s Big 12 Championship Trophies Shattered Today

It’s okay. OU has nine others.

The Oklahoma staff had plenty of 2018 recruits in town for this weekend, and I’m sure they were eager to show off some of the hardware. However, things went awry on Saturday afternoon.

As offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley indicated in his tweet, this isn’t exactly a huge loss for Oklahoma. The Sooners have won 10 Big 12 championship trophies since the Big 12’s inception, and winning the conference isn’t exactly a monumental accomplishment at this point.

On the other hand, I do feel really bad for the guy who broke the trophy, a sentiment which was echoed by our own Graham Dudley this afternoon.

I have a sneaking suspicion that this was the work of the Jerry Gergich of the athletic department. At least that’s what I’d like to think!
