Triple option: Big 12 passes up ACC 

May, 21, 2012
Every weekday morning, a member of the SoonerNation gives his take on three things happening in the Sooner sports world.

1. One interesting point that was raised to me over the weekend: Why would Stanford athletic Bob Bowlsby, who was a major element in the formation of the Pac-12, agree to become Big 12 commissioner if there was not some grander plan for the league? Well, the implementing of the SEC-Big 12 bowl game was one major step in the direction of four major leagues being formed. And the ACC could be on its way to the brink.

2. Oklahoma State getting swept by Texas A&M was the best thing that could have happen to the OU baseball team. The Sooners have a better RPI and thanks to the Aggies finished ahead of OSU in the Big 12 standings. Even though the Cowboys took 3 of 4 in the Bedlam series, OU is in a much stronger position for a regional, should only four Big 12 teams receive postseason invites. The Bedlam rivals meet again Wednesday morning in the first round of the Big 12 Tournament. If the Sooners can pull out a win, they would all but solidify their position ahead of OSU in the Big 12 postseason pecking order.
