NORMAN — So, Oklahoma is joining the Southeastern Conference.
Someday. Maybe someday soon.
But right now, there’s a championship to win, and the 2021 season officially starts Friday when the Sooners open training camp.
OU to the SEC? Exciting news to be sure. Not everyone spoke effusively of the Sooners’ future in college football’s most powerful conference during Thursday’s OU Media Day.
Still, senior defensive tackle Perrion Winfrey, who won’t be here when the change occurs, wanted to clarify how he felt when the news broke.
“When I seen that it happened, I was honestly excited,” Winfrey said. “Because I can’t stand the noise saying that we’re in the Big 12 and we can’t handle the SEC.”
