Yes, it is a Red Oak and since I am "non-formally educated" I tend to lump the large leaf Red Oaks into the Cherrybark category.

I'd say southern red oak. The leaves have a bell shaped base which is typical of sro.

Correct and the leaf bases do not have the pagoda shape of a Cherrybark.  :-[

Definitely southern red oak.  You will also see that there is a color difference between the bright green of the leaf topside and a tawny brown on the leaf underside.  Makes the leaf two-toned.  Cherrybark also has a two toned leaf, but the base is not bell-shaped.  Might not see the color difference on a dried out browned out leaf, but there could be different shades of brown.
