      I don't have much of an opinion on Dallas being neutral or not, but I do think there's something to be said in the benefits that DFW and the state of Texas has from having the tax revenue that our state completely misses out on. It's a drop in the bucket for a place like Dallas, but for OKC area to host an event like that every year would be major.

        I've never understood this complete misconception. You do understand that it wouldn't be THAT event here in Oklahoma, right? It would have all the same economic impact as any other OU football game. We'd give the 4,000 or so tickets to the away team just like we do for every other game. OU texas is what it is BECAUSE it's halfway between the schools and creates the event that makes 100,000 people go from each side even when they don't have tickets. Do you think every OU student is going to Austin every other year? That's not how it works.

        Yes, Dallas gets the economic impact because of its geography and both teams get a commensurate and equal payout. So, our state doesn't miss out on any economic impact. It just doesn't. That's a completely fake, non-fungible excuse that the idiot EZ Million came up with.

            There are now, what 3 games like this? OU/texas, Fla/Ga, Army/Navy. To move this game is to marginalize the rivalry and weaken the position and prestige of OU football. That’s a really stupid thing to do unless you hate OU football.
            Yeah, there might be an economic benefit with a home and home but that would piss away the huge impact this game has on the program and the school. Moving this to home and home makes this just another rivalry game

              Exactly. Let me put it this way... I live on a street between Preston and Bodecker, and and there are 6 OU flags, more than any other college.

                BTW, texas fans that have this same stupid fucking idea think OU gets too much of a recruiting advantage from the game.

                Again, just quit fucking with it, especially for stupid reasons.
                I think that the "advantage that Texas gets from the game has been real through the years....but it's much less so than it was in decades past.

                Barry Switzer used to talk about how "last he checked...Dallas was still in Texas."

                Leon Cross used to joke and say that the south end of the Cotton Bowl was "Little West Berlin" and that the players and fans of Oklahoma have a sense that they are the foreigners in Dallas.

                Those two guys are pretty familiar with the game and the atmosphere surrounding the game from the perspective of the team.

                Nowadays things are a lot different than say the 1960s and 1970s when the anti Okie spirit was pretty palpable in Dallas on those weekends. The players all know each other and have interacted with each other through recruiting or social media. Fans have done the same. As you say, Dallas (while still a majority Longhorn town) has lots of OU, OSU, Arkie, and fans from other schools.

                But until the Dallas Morning News and the other Dallas media start calling it the OU-Texas game every other year instead of Texas -OU every year...I'll never say Dallas is a totally neutral site. And that ain't ever going to happen.

                  There’s a lot of OU presence in Dallas so I don’t agree with anyone saying Texas has any advantage. I will say the staff at the fair is definitely pro-Texas. I’ve been to 20+ of these and they’ll let you know it when we lose.

                    I hope entering the SEC doesn’t change the RRR or where those two wanna play it out. It’s always a great atmosphere and game for even the non BIG 12 fan. I’ve watched several times because of the rivalry and atmosphere. That’s what college football is about, IMO. Same as Michigan/tOSU. Washington/Oregon. Florida St/Miami.

                    However, the biggest game coming up
                    for OU, venue and Goal once entering the SEC will be in Atlanta, if can get there. IF.

                      But it wouldn't be every year. It would be every 2 years.

                        I listen to The Ticket a lot. They are a Dallas-based sports talk station.

                        They talk about OU a lot more than they talk about UT. It helps that a couple of the hosts are OU homers.

                          Your treasured conference championship game hosted Missouri twice. In their first two years of conference play.

                            How about the refs? We have to overcome them and the game...every year, go look it up.

                              So you don't want to play at Tech, OSU, etc, etc. I get it, all games in Norman.

                                We have the same issue in Norman, especially now that we are leaving the Big 12. So what is your point?

                                    I’m not going to read all the replies but have to say it must stay at the Cotton Bowl simply because that’s where the fair is. Jerry Wolrd isn’t that great of a college venue but if you were to move the fair to surround Jerry World, I’d say move the game too. The game being INSIDE the state fair is a big deal to me.

                                      No, just no.

                                      The answer is the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. That’s always been the answer. That will always be the answer.

                                        Does the game have an opportunity to be a night game when it's in the SEC? Or will the ghettoplex excuse still be used?

                                          Maybe if both are in top 5 there will be some pressure. Still doubt it tho.

                                            It’s a dumb excuse too.
