“Nobody cares … we’re talking about Stillwater, Oklahoma.”
“Mike Gundy hasn’t said anything significant since ‘I’m 40, I’m a man.'”
“What he (Gundy) said yesterday is nonsensical. Oklahoma’s moving on. They’re going to be playing Alabama. They’ll still be playing Texas. They’ll be playing A&M and Georgia.”
“This (Bedlam) is a nice little game in a small state, but to the rest of the country … it’s giving it a big yawn this morning.”

Why is the Bedlam series between OU and Oklahoma State football ending?
Both OU and Oklahoma State have agreed for the time being that the Bedlam series will come to an end once the Sooners join the SEC, which will happen no later than the 2025 NCAA football season.

Could Bedlam resume between OU and Oklahoma State football at some point?
Possibly. The Oklahoman’s Berry Tramel points out that some longtime NCAA football rivalries once thought to have ended for good have been rekindled in the past. As far as what it would take to get the Sooners and the Cowboys playing each other during the NCAA football regular season after OU joins the SEC? Tramel says this.
The logistical challenges are this. Bedlam might have to die for its keepers to realize what will be missed when it’s gone.
