The reporters who were at the spring game noticed an 2008 Big 12 Conference championship display with an asterisk inside the Texas training facility.
The University of Oklahoma beat Missouri for the Big 12 championship last December after using BCS standings to break the tie with UT.
The Texas assistant athletic director for media relations, John Bianco, told the media that Texas head coach Mack Brown "wasn't aware of the Big 12 title listing and will have it fixed."
University of Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops, ever the classy sportsman, said, "It doesn't matter to me at all. I know there isn't one (as asterisk) on ours. I know where the trophy is."
University of Texas really comes off looking foolish in this one. Sure, they had a tough break last season. They had a great team that won a lot of games, and they did not receive an invitation to play for the Big 12 championship despite having beaten both teams playing for it.
However, this does not give UT the right to go around re-writing history to suit their own pragmatic tastes. OU beat MU for the title. End of story. Cry me a river, Bevo.
