Shared championships aren't at all uncommon. Oklahoma claims 12 conference titles from the Barry Switzer era, but four of them were shared.
Stoops had been critical in the past of shared championships, but changed his tune late last season when it appeared the co-championship with Kansas State might happen.
The Oklahoma players' tweets were reminiscent of May 2011, when former Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden tweeted a photo of his 2010 Big 12 South Division championship ring.
OSU, OU and Texas A&M shared the division title, but the Sooners advanced to the Big 12 championship game because of the BCS standings.
“Love how @bweeden3 posted that pic of Big 12 ring,” former OU safety Tony Jefferson tweeted then. “Didnt win that bud. #sorrypokes.”
