UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA

On a September afternoon six years ago, the topic was conference realignment, and Oklahoma’s president had something to say: The comment, seemingly off the cuff — but clearly calculated to deliver a message — sent a shockwave around the Big 12 Conference. The league appeared to be teetering on the verge of collapse, and Boren seemed to be giving it a firm push. In short order, Texas A&M and Missouri were headed to the SEC. Oklahoma stayed put. The Big 12 survived, albeit in a different, smaller form. But it was one example of the impact of Boren, who announced his retirement Wednesday, effective next June. In a conference that at least publicly has resembled a tangled mess of competing agendas over the last few years, his voice has most often been the loudest. With Boren in charge at Oklahoma, shy was never an issue. – George Schroeder, usatoday.comRead More
