OSU is (still) poised to hold a lead role in the new Big 12 on at least one ground – consistently winning football games.

Once the Sooners and Longhorns leave, no Big 12 school will wield the kind of power they did.

OSU, though, is as close as any.

Let’s start with the football component, which we know to be paramount. OSU football has enjoyed as much prolonged success as any school that will remain in the Big 12 a year from today.
