OU is just all in on this 2012 Big 12 Champions thing, no “co-champs” no “shared title” just “Big 12 Champs.”
I feel like we would have done the same thing.
I think we actually did this after the 2010 season or their was talk of doing it. We were mocked by ou for claiming a share of the crown that they believed we hadn’t earned. I find it funny that after a few down years by their standards they don’t see any thing wrong with it
It’s because we only won a share of the south division title. Not the actual conference title. And Gundy and the program got the players championship rings, hats, etc.
Yeah. It was lame that we got division rings…however, at least we ACTUALLY tied for first. We beat A&M, A&M beat OU, OU beat us. It was a three-way tie. This year, however, OU and K-State had the same record, but K-State beat OU…that makes K-State outright champions. It’s just funny how they ragged on us for it and now they’re doing the same thing.
And in my mind, that was lame too.
I also saw OU Big 12 Champs Shirts at Wal-Mart in Norman. Perhaps it’s the only way to prevent mass chaos in sooner nation…
Sandbags against the exit off the bandwagon.
Didn’t Bob Stoopid say “one champion” in 2011?
I don’t even know why they have co-champs. They have tiebreakers in place to determine who is #1 seed in the tournament (and in football, who goes to conference title/BCS game), so just use those for the champ. Even though OSU was regular season co-champ in 2005 (correct me if I’m wrong), I personally didn’t count it because we weren’t 1 seed in the tournament.
