My apologies to you. I was not trying to belittle you. I really thought that you were admitting your limitation here. We all have them, I have many:). Anyway, I detest and despise OU so much that I just have to root for them to be defeated. I was not always an OU hater but my distaste grew exponentially over the years as I find a great majority of their fans to be rude and arrogant. All programs have them, but it just seems that they have a greater proportion than others. Now, I root for who ever they play because it is so great to see the wind kicked out of their gut when they lose. It takes them down a notch and slaps them into reality. A vast majority of their fans are people who can't even spell college, but bought an ou shirt and hat down at the local Walmart.
Go Jayhawks!
Wow...you said it all perfectly right there. I love watching people bail off of OU's bandwagon when OU starts tanking. Those of us on the orange (and in your case blue) side of life know what it means to be loyal through thick and thin and endure OU fans. I remember the weekend after OU won it all after the 2000 season I went into a Tulsa restaurant wearing an OSU sweatshirt and the waitress told me all about how her Sooners won the national championship. The chick WOULD NOT LET IT GO. I mean, it was constant the whole time I was there. She got a 1 cent tip that evening.

I understand where you're coming from I suppose. We all base our opinions on our own personal experiences. You're definitely correct in saying that EVERY team (especially teams that are consistently in the top 10) has their annoying, rude, arrogant, and "my team is the best there ever was/is/will be" morons. It's just the nature of some people. You'd probably feel that way about USC if you lived on the West Coast somewhere, or Ohio State if you were a Michigan fan, or LSU if you were a Bama fan. All I'm saying is.... Don't be a hater...We're not all idiots.:)

Well, I am a die hard USC fan through and through, although I graduated from another university.I only put the Go Jayhawks up because I root for every team that plays Chokelahoma. I have encountered so many crazy OU fans that just make idiots out of themselves. My next door neighbor, who is a good dude and a HUGE OU fan, is an example. I will preface that he did not attend OU nor has anyone in his family attended OU, but last year when my Trojans lost early in the year to Oregon State, he came out and said, "man, your Trojans really suck". I laughed and kept my mouth shut and thought to myself, we will see who is better at the end of the year. So, when OU flamedo out against Texas and whoever else they lost to, USC kept winning and as usual, won their bowl game. OU backended into the National Championship game and got worked by UF. USC finished higher than OU did last year and my neighbor who conveniently forgot that fact, is reminded frequently when he starts running his mouth.

I hope that waitress got your message loud and clear. I think we may have visited that same place that year--hahaha

Well Very Sad, as I stated in an earlier post, I do not lump all OU fans in the idiot category. I admire and respect people who remain true to their beliefs/school, but there are many that give your fan base a really bad stigma. Perhaps I just encounter the "idiot" portion of your fans. Who knows? While I detest the Sooners, I do like Bob Stoops and some of their players and I was sickened to see Sam go down in the BYU game. I think that it is okay that I hate the sooners and root against them. It goes on all over the USA, in every city. You had said that you did not understand the "rooting against thing" in an earlier post. I will presume you are a Christian, and as such, you root agianst the devil, right? I root against the enemy and that is the sooners. BTW, I am not calling the sooners or their fans devil-like..:)

I guess I didn't explain myself in the correct way. I do root against teams sometimes. There are teams I like better than others. It's the people who seem to make it their mission to root against a certain team, that I don't understand. Not necessarily saying you're one of them. It seems to me those that do it, spend more time rooting against a team than they do rooting FOR "their" team. Cracks me up. People are funny like that I guess.

Interesting how people criticize what I post accusing me of not reading everything and yet, they don't read all of my posted comments either.

It did post that it is possible for a person to earn a bachelor's degree in 3 years if they take extra credit hours each semester and go to summer school sessions, too.

Bless your heart JAD, you are so confused and really don't know much about athletics or eligibility. Its ok. They do, in fact, list Sam as a Junior. What that means is that he is a Junior as far as football eligibility is concerned. You would be surprised how many young people who are athletes have graduated with a Bachelors degree and are only Juniors and are working on their Master's degrees their final year. If you don't understand, I can explain in simpler terms. By the way, Sam is a bright young man and will graduate in December of this year with his Bachelors degree. He will still have one more football season remaining if he so chooses because he red-shirted his first year. Further, if he appeals to the NCAA, he could get a medical hardship for a sixth year. Jason White, former OU QB and Heisman winner, was a 6th year senior.
If they call Sam Bradford a junior when he is really a 1st Semester Senior as far as his college credits are concerned, why does the OU Athletic Department have to claim otherwise.

Since Sam Bradford was graduated from high school in the spring of 2006 and he took a regular full-couse load each semester (it was 16 hours per semester with I was an undergrad at Northeastern State), he would just be a 1st Semester Senior.

When you add 4 years to Spring 2006, you end up with Spring 2010.

When I was an undergrad at NSC (that's before it was called NSU), many pre-med and pre-dental students did not go to NSC their senior year. They went to med school or dental school instead. They did not receive a bachelor's degree.

I also know that a person can earn a PhD without earning a Master's degree first. I have known at least one person who did that.

If a person who is not on an athletic scholarship and he is not working a regular nor part time job and he has a high IQ, but, it takes him 6 years to earn a degree, he's apparently a free-loader and lazy.

I actually married the enemy, and my wife is a RABID OU fan (and an attorney)...and there is NO arguing with her about anything OU. The woman would rival any guy's devotion to the Church of the Crimson Mind. Bedlam is always fun in our house, but I've got to hand it to her, she is one of the few Crimson and Dreamers who can be gracious when the land thieves...I mean Sooners...win. There are a few civil ones among them, like you say.

That is awesome! I like the use of the "land thieves"! I feel for you brother, but it does make things interesting for you. She must be relentless when her team gives the OSU team a loss, since she is an attorney and probably a natural argumentor. I can relate somewhat as my bride is a graduate of the University of Texas and when they defeated my beloved Trojans for the national championship I did not hear the end of it for 6 months. We had a wager that I would wear Texas gear every weekend for two months because of the win. I pull for OSU like I went to school there and I even wear their gear in support. They are my "other team"....
It all in good fun and makes for a great distraction from lifes trials and tribulations....Go Pokes!
