Texas and Oklahoma fans are always going to see things differently. That’s just how this rivalry thing works.
So when Sooners offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley tweets that one of the school’s Big 12 championship trophies was broken, he’s entitled to frame it how he pleases.
All we see is a hilariously sad attempt to transport fragile objects.
Bad News: The Big 12 Championship Trophy was broken today.

So yeah, Oklahoma has 10 Big 12 championships (and now nine trophies) to the Longhorns’ three. However, it is still an institution of higher learning — one that appears to have attempted to roll a cart down a slope, somehow expecting the objects resting on said cart not to roll off.
Couldn’t have seen that one coming, right?
See, there are plenty of jokes to go around; and 258 days remaining until the second weekend of the State Fair.
