Well, at least he gave good reasons for his dislike. "OSU deserves nothing because...well, because they're OSU!"

Nothing enrages this group of OU sycophants like being made to realize that not only is there another school in the state but that little brother in Stillwater has a better overall athletic program. OOOO, that burns them. Poor Aggies, indeed!

How do you figure they have a better overall athletic program? They only have winning seasons in basketball and wrestling. The first, had a drunk of a coach, and the second is only a couple of gay guys in tight outfits touching each other. What a winning program that is. Even after all of Boone Pickens money, they still can't buy a winning football season. Football is where they real athletes compete. OSU never looks for a title in football. They only look to be OU. That's there bowl game. OU always expects to compete for ntaional titles, as true althletes do. Face it, OSU sucks. Always have, always will. Go Sooners!!

We can tell by your grammer and misspellings that you probably never sat foot in a college classroom much less graduated. You are the kind of fan that gives programs a bad name, you crow about their achievements when they win, desert them when they have down years and don't support any other program besides football. When was the last time you went to a basketball game, wrestling match or baseball game? Maybe you couldn't change your shift at McDonalds so you could go. As to your comments regarding our previous basketball coach, OU never had any issues with their coaches or athletes did they? Does the cover of Sports Illustrated w/ a former OU quarterback in handcuffs ring a bell? On the comment of "gay guys in tight outfits" perhaps a couple of sessions with one of those guys might change your mind.

You people act as if ou and osu are from different states. We should all be very grateful that we have good solid schools to attend and you should be happy that either team does well. The only thing that should matter is that they play for the love of the game. The players and coaches do not make the teams look bad even after a loss. It is the constant bickering of the ugly football fan that keeps the trash going. Try being loyal to all your state teams and support oklahoma the state.

SEE THESE SOONER IDIOTS PICK SHIT WITH ANYONE THAT WILL LISTEN. READ SOME OF THE EARLIER POSTINGS ON OTHER TOPICS. I READ ONE WHERE A PROFESSED SOONER FAN WAS STATING SHE/HE WAS EMBARRASSED BY ALL OF THE CRAP COMING OUT OF OTHER SOONERS. I HOPE THERE ARE SOME SOONER FANS THAT KNOW THE TRUE MEANING OF SPORTSMANSHIP. THIS IS A GAME. THIS SHIT REMINDS ME OF WHY THEY GIVE THOSE LITTLE LEAGUE SPEECHS AT THE BEGINNING OF EVERY SEASON TO THE PLAYER'S PAENTS. I'M GLAD THAT LITTLE EXCHANGE TOOK PLACE FOR EVERYONE ELSE TO SEE. PATHETIC!!!

Hello....NO COWBOY BOWL Radio coverage?
What's up with the fact that I cannot find today's game anywhere on web radio?
I've searched everywhere on the net trying to find the radio coverage for the Cowboy's football game today...(even looked on the rolltide.com website.) Egads! This is pathetic!
Come on Big XII administration, surely our conference can afford to have radio coverage for all of our teams that appear in bowl games...can't we??

I totally agree with OSU ALUM from Owasso. Where I work (EDS) in Tulsa, most of the people are OU fans. However, out of every 10, probably two actually attended the aformentioned university. Besides that, everything that OSU ALUM said is true with regard to OU support for their other programs. I follow OSU in pretty much all their sports. Seems like whenever football season ends, you hardly hear a peep out of the OU fans. As for OSU fans, they pretty much talk about the different sports year around. By the way, I attended OSU for well over a year and my dad is an OSU grad. GO POKES!!!

Actually, OSU Alum (sic) it does "ring a bell." But what totally "blows the bull horn" is the fact that illiterate Dexter Manley was granted a degree from your esteemed “University.” Truly pathetic. Further, I would not admit to anyone that I am an OSU Alum (or alumni) as that is a title that can be shared with the said illiterate Mr. Manley.
"So easy a caveman can do it" should apply to Poke State's degree programs as well as discount automobile insurance.

Welcome back to Sooner Land my friends!!
Gotta love this time of year...only better is late fall!! I recall OSU when a guy named Jimmy Johnson (aka, U of M, Dallas Cowboys), coached and we had Barry. We would have it out over these same issues way back then. Nothing really changes, only the names.
And talk about change, wow, no respect for Boise, out the gate at 23rd in the preseason poll. OU again getting the love at #8, thats without even knowing who is going to QB yet. Tradition is a beautiful thing boys!
It really does not matter who gets the job, they surrounding talent is so deep on all sides anyway. If we can get by OSU late in the year, we be bowling for the marbles in January!!

Long time and many possible inuries until then, but it looks really, really good right now!

Go Sooners!
