It's only because we've spent 97 weeks ranked #1 in the AP Poll that it "seems" like you hear it every year...

Does anyone here know where the hostility between OU and Texas stems from?

I mean, as a former member of the LHB, I have a few legitimate reasons to hate Sooner fans, but for the most part all of the Sooner fans and Longhorn fans just blidnly hate each other without even wondering why that is. I find it a bit humorous...

Well, see if it was not for the state of Texas, OU could not field a team (not a top 25 team)! Being a fifth generation UT grad, I don't hate OU people; I just wish they would change the name to "The University of Texas @ Norman"!

I think the hate starts with the fact that OU has been more successful over the years and decades than Texas and Texas feels crapy about it because OU does it with less talent than them. Or at least supposed to be less talent.

I mean, Texas DOES get the first pick of in state recruits.......... right?

Or do they????????? ROTFLMMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My disdain for Okie fans starts and ends with marching into the Cotton Bowl. I've never had so much beer thrown on me in my life. Stay classy Oklahoma fans, if it's even in your vernacular...

You can't blame all those kids from Tejas for wanting to leave! Granted there is a tremendous amount of talent in California, Tejas and Florida by virtue of the population of these warm weather states. And OU has always had a significant portion of it's roster filled with Tejas recruits. Heck Switzer was well recognized for his ability to recruit Tejas talent. Again, who wants to stay in Tejas?

That said none of our 5 Heisman Trophy winners were born in Tejas although Simms went to high school there.

Bradford (Oklahoma)
White (Oklahoma)
Simms (Missouri)
Owens (Oklahoma)
Vessels (Oklahoma)

Let's see, of the 2 Heisman winners at Tejas only one came from the state of Tejas. Ricky Williams was from San Diego.

And none of OUr 4 greatest coaches (each winning more than 100 games) are from Tejas.

Bennie (From Chicago, went to school at Kansas)
Bud (From Minneapolis, went to school at Minnesota)
Barry (From Arkansas, went to school at Arkansas)
Bob (From Youngstown, went to school at Iowa)

And as I mentioned in a previous post, Darrell Royal (167–45–5) - the most successful coach in Tejas football history was born in Oklahoma and played QB and DB for Oklahoma in the '40s. How does it feel to have your stadium named after an Oklahoman??

Looking at our current roster - our skill players:

Landry Jones QB (New Mexico)
Ryan Broyles WR (Oklahoma)
Cameron Kenney WR (Georgia)
DeMarco Murray RB (Nevada)
Mossis Madu RB (Oklahoma)
Frank Alexander DE (Louisiana)
Jeremy Beal DE (Texas)
Quinton Carter DB (Nevada)
Austin Box LB (Oklahoma)

So much for the "couldn't field a top 25 team without Tejas"

We have never had any difficulties with Sooner fans, and we have been playing them since before Texas was a state. Go Boomers!

Nebraska - now there's a team rich in tradition! I had the privilege of doing my residency there and attended many games in Lincoln. I made life-long friends and was ALWAYS treated with respect.

Hate to see the conference split but can't blame the Bugeaters for joining in with the Big10 - a lot more opportunities there.

I wish they would schedule Oklahoma vs Nebraska every year around Thanksgiving as a non-conference game! Really miss those days.

Hope to see you guys at the BigXII championship game for one last hurrah! You know Sooner nation (and all of college football) will be wearing red and cheering for you October 16th.

So I suppose all the beer I had to empty from my sousaphone was just imagined?

Remember, at the Cotton Bowl, seating is split 50-50 right down the 50-yard line. Texas on one side and Oklahoma on the other, and there's only one tunnel in the stadium. It's located at the end of the stadium that's surrounded by Sooner fans. So when the Longhorn Band marches into and out of the stadium for the pregame show, it's surrounded by Sooner fans.
