At OU, he had one, maybe two games a year to contend with (Texas or Oklahoma State, and sometimes Kansas State or Baylor). In the SEC he would have been in the West, and had to deal with BAMA, LSU, Auburn, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Miss State and Texas every year. In the PAC12, he can raise the program to the level of OU, and only have one, or two opponents to contend with. It's an easier path, and he can win conference championships and make te playoffs, much, much, much easier than winning the SEC and making the playoffs. With OU jumping to the SEC, USC was a more desirable destination, compared staying at OU or going to LSU, and having to compete in the SEC. It's going to be interesting to see who OU is able to land. All I got from that was that jobs in the SEC aren't very prestigious. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
