I’m not redoing this nonsense after the Big 12 title game, so live with it.

1. Oklahoma/Texas

We get to do this again? Wait…..let me rephrase….

WE HAVE TO DO THIS AGAIN?

If the Baylor - Texas Tech game can have the “Texas Farm Bureau Shootout” trophy, why can’t OU vs Texas be called the “Red River Shootout?”

I know the Sooners are our “hated” rival, but I can’t stand the thought of “Texas is ACTUALLY back.” Thank goodness for the Big 12 championship game or we would already be swimming in it...

3. Iowa State

Is there a Brinks truck somewhere you can back up into Matt’s front lawn?

4. West Virginia

Three consecutive seasons of knocking on the door at the top of the conference, but yet couch burnings are up? Yep, send Dana to Tech, that will solve all your problems.

THE REMAINING TEAMS ON THIS LIST ARE REQUIRED TO SEND MASSIVE GIFTS OF THANKS TO OKLAHOMA STATE…

5. TCU

If it weren’t for Matt Campbell, Gary Patterson should be coach of the year for doing this with one really good player and what amounts to the scout team. Also…HOW DID OSU LOSE TO THEM?

6. Baylor

HOW DID OSU LOSE TO THEM?

7. Kansas State

Is the Purple Wizard done? If so, prepare to reenter the dark world of annually shitty football. Talk to your brother, he can tell you all about it. Also…HOW DID OSU LOSE TO THEM?

8. Texas Tech

I’m here for all the coaching rumors regarding Mike Leach and Dana Holgorsen. Also…HOW DID OSU LOSE TO THEM?

9. Kansas

OSU didn’t lose to you, but you get this spot because we EXPECT you to be here...AND you brought Brother Les back.

10. Oklahoma State

Is the streak over? If you ask Gundy, he’ll say “It’s the dangdest thing. I don’t know.” That’s what five mill gets you these days, I guess. That was, without question, the most disappointing season OSU has posted since…last season? Is that a trend? For five million dollars a year I would think you could summon something better than “I don’t know.” You came within seven points of beating the top four teams in the Big 12, yet you lose to the next four in HORRIBLE fashion in a year where you had one of the better backfields in the league and a Biletnikoff finalist at WR, not to mention a QB who was 3rd in total offense, 3rd in passing yards/game, 4th in passing efficiency in the Big 12. You fielded a defense that led the league in sacks and was 3rd in red zone defense. Your red zone offense was 3rd.

WTF are you doing? Talk about the last regular season game making a difference? 2014 ended like this...

2018 ended like this...

If you are going to shit down your pant leg with that much talent, then you get last place because we DON’T EXPECT you to be here and for five million a year you SHOULDN’T be here.
