OU/Texas Game Could be Moving

Both sides play this card when it is time to start re-negotiating the contract with the city of Dallas, but I think it might be legit this time because the city has refused to make improvements to the Cotton Bowl.

University of Oklahoma President David Boren said that the series has a greater chance than ever of becoming a home-and-home series, according to the Norman Transcript.

Boren stated that the city of Dallas’ unwillingness to improve the Cotton Bowl, coupled with recent renovations to the football stadiums in Norman and in Austin, are turning the tide towards ending the Red River Shoot-Out in Dallas.

The game is under contract with the Cotton Bowl and the city of Dallas until 2008. I think they might be bluffing but it could cost the city of Dallas millions of dollars to call it.
