Dancing in the Ruins: Expansion silliness, Garrett Gilbert, Mike Gundy, and more.


(Dancing in the Ruins is SWRT's look at the Big XII Conference. Or at least what's left of it.) 

I am not dead yet.
Any Staples of SI.com explains why the SEC Presidents not voting on Texas A&M's invitation to the conference is more of a legal formality than an actual snub. (SI.com)

A little turned off. 
The SEC's bad reputation with a "cutthroat football recruiting culture" and lackluster academics is what keeps Oklahoma from wanting to defect with Texas A&M on its own free will. Because Barry Trammel said so. (The Oklahoman)

What's Eating Garrett Gilbert?
Texas quarterback Garrett Gilbert struggled during a Saturday scrimmage, putting his chances of continuing as the Longhorns' starting quarterback in question. (Burnt Orange Nation)

Pleased as punch.
Oklahoma State head football coach Mike Gundy says he was "pleased" with the Cowboys' Saturday night scrimmage. (Tulsa World)

A New World Record.
Oklahoma St. is well on it's way in breaking the school record for season ticket sales. (Tulsa World)
