OK State has had one really good season and a couple two loss conf seasons over the past 10 years if my quick scan is correct. How much would you base your future on that school being a top 10 caliber team?
Odds are FSU/Clem might only see one of TU/OU at home every other year. How many games with FSU has VT seen in 'burg since 2004? They don't really need either school to fill their stadium, it's nice to have but not necessary imo.
Miami won't play Clemson OOC. That ain't gonna happen from either school's perspective.
And remember, for picking up one of tu/OU, you also get matchups with the other B12 schools which will offer not much with respect to fan interest (best matchups are "local" - always been that way, always will be). You know, TT, Baylor, TCU, KU, ISU, WVU...
