The best of all worlds…

Sometime schools are football schools, and sometimes they’re not…the biggest difference between the two is that places like OU use football to provide top of the line athletic programs across the board.  Oklahoma and Kansas are perfect examples of the dichotomy between the two.

In the latest USA Today revenue rankings for athletic departments OU generated over $163 million dollars for the 2020/21 school year which ranks the Sooners at # 8 in this category.  Kansas is no where to be seen on this list.  

At OU, the non-football/non-revenue sports work extra hard to pay their own way and OU football takes care of the rest.

Here is proof positive of this is working out for us…

OU sports currently ranked #1 nationally…softball, men’s golf, and women’s gymnastics

OU sports currently ranked #2 nationally…women’s tennis, men’s gymnastics…

Additional rankings

#17 men’s tennis

# 21 women’s basketball

# 24 wrestling…

Kansas needs a football program in the worst way.  Without it, the athletic program sucks across the board. KU basketball comes close to paying for itself, but Bill Self’s $10 million-dollar yearly salary takes care of any money that the basketball program generates… 

OU has the best of all worlds.   We should be proud…
