Lately on the local sports radio stations here in Austin, there has been an argument that UT should continue to root for Oklahoma in the national championship.
The reasoning would be that (a) We could claim to be the team that beat the National Champs and draw an AP title and (b)An OU loss is bad for the BIGXII.
My opinion of this is an emphatic HELL NO! I will never root for the Sooners, especially not with a National Title on the line.
(a) The chances of a split title small. No matter what Texas does, if OU wins the BCS title, they will most likely be a unanimous champ.
(b) I don't buy the hype about the BigXII's reputation being damaged. Please, OU has lost its last 4 BCS bowls and nobody gives a d*mn. I mean look where they are at now. Ohio St has lost its last 2 and is STILL in a BCS bowl. And if OU losing means I have to listen to another year of SEC fawning, thats just fine with me. It'll be drowned out by the whimperings of the distraught neighbors north of the Red River.
