Oklahoma, at its heart, would like to leave the Big 12. This is what Paul Finebaum believes, anyway.
ESPN’s college football expert said so earlier this week on College Football Live while discussing conference expansion.
Finebaum believes the Big 12 – which is currently looking at programs like ECU, Houston, Memphis and others for expansion – doesn’t really know what it’s doing. He thinks the Sooners would be better off joining the Big Ten or the SEC.
There are rumors all over the place about other leagues poaching,” he said. “I believe Oklahoma would probably rather be in the SEC or the Big Ten than the Big 12.
“I think the bigger question is will the Big 12 survive when all this is over.”
What conference do you want Oklahoma to be in, Sooners’ fans?
