Pac-12 Expansion: Is Oklahoma Really the First Choice?
News broke yesterday that a possible Pac-12 expansion was on the near horizon and the likely team to join will be Oklahoma, or at least that's who the conference wants, but is that report accurate? Even if that report is accurate, would Oklahoma be the right choice?
Oklahoma is the top ranked team in the country and are loaded with talent, but from a conference standpoint they are still Texas' little brother. Oklahoma would be smart to leave the conference if the invitation is extended. They would be in a conference with Oregon, Stanford and USC. Three teams that aren't going anywhere anytime soon.
Oklahoma's only competition in the conference right now is Texas and Texas A&M with the occasional tough contest against Oklahoma State. Looking at it from the Pac-12's point of view, would Oklahoma be beneficial for them?
Oklahoma will be bringing in a top 5 or top 10 ranked team and possibly a National Champion if everything goes right for them this season, so they would be the best option for the Pac-12. Oklahoma would bring with them a team loaded with talent, one of the best coaches in the country and a huge fan base in Oklahoma.
If the Pac-12 is looking to expand, Oklahoma should be the first choice.
