He made that much clear during the ongoing Big 12 Media Days.
“It’s interesting,” Gundy said, according to ESPN. “We go to conference meetings, and OU and Texas are in there. They’re still in the conference. But I’m guessing when they leave, they’re scratching down things that can help them when they’re in the SEC. So it is an unusual situation. I think there’s a business side of it that nowadays people say, ‘It is what it is.’ Which 10 years ago, they might not even let them in meetings. The new commissioner, I mean, honestly, if I was him, I wouldn’t let OU and Texas in any meetings.”
Apparently, Texas and Oklahoma doesn’t want to be there either, one could say.
