OU definitely has a better squad but judging by our season start (post benching Gilbert), I'm excited to see how we do.

Being a life long OU fanatic my entire life, it pains me to say this, but I think Texas has a decent chance of pulling off an upset this year. I have watched almost every UT game this year and once they benched Gilbert, the entire attitude of the team changed. It'll be a close game as most have been over the decades. The Longhorns will be up for this one......and we all know how well "Big Game Bob" prepares his team for big games.......

Well, guess I could have given lots of points--my Sooners stomped a mudhole in the Horns. Will be interesting to see what happens in the OSU vs Texas game this weekend.

Boomer Sooner!

What does Boomer Sooner mean? In fact, what in the world is a Sooner?
If you really want to know, it refers to the Oklahoma Land Rush. Everyone was lined up to run out and stake out their claim on the land at a specific time, when the cannon went off. Those who waited were referred to as "Boomers" and those that snuck out early and planted their flags, before the cannon went off and sooner than those who followed the rules, were referred to as "Sooners"

That's actually interesting, and yes, it was a serious question. Longhorn is easy to figure out... Sooner Boomer sounded like that gibberish at the beginning of A&M's fight song, lol.

So actually OU's mascot could also be "land thieves," but I think Sooners is a little more catchy.

It is better than Nebraska's original nickname--the bug eaters.

The ponies who pull the schooner after a score are named Boomer and Sooner. What is the name of the guy in the horse outfit who runs around the field? ( The mascot, not the name of the guy in the suit )
