Texas has many more players to choose from and therefore makes it better. When MU was selling along in 1969, not many from Tx.OU has made a living in Tx b/c of proximity, but the best Sooner ever was Leroy Selmon and he is an Okie. Ditto for the late Rod Shoate and the Tony Casillas of the world.Players in Mo. usually stack up pretty good if you take the top 11-15.Tx takes off when you look at #30-#150 where as Mo. stops at #25,Mo. players seem to go all over and there is not enough to spead around as in Tx.But if your #6 state recruit might be on a par with #6-#50 in Tx. ypu go there too.
