You own it - you better never let it go

[throwback players] [throwback cheerleaders] [throwback coaches]

OU defeated North Texas 37-3 in its season opener last night. It was in front of a record crowd of 83,073 after the stadium expansion -- the most to ever witness a sporting event in the state of Oklahoma. The players took the field in throwback uniforms honoring the Bud Wilkinson teams of the late 1950s, the cheerleaders wore uniforms honoring teams from the 1940s, and the coaches wore outfits honoring the Barry Switzer teams of the 1970s and 1980s. OU opened the season No. 1 for the first time since Switzer's 1987 squad had the honors. Next week...Bama at Bama!

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

who're the sooners again? ;-)

Great job last night. OU even covered the spread! (drats!!) I *love* the uniforms but the cheerleaders...nah. I still contend that they should wear throwbacks every year at homecoming to honor a different class each year.

1-0...here we go.

And I'd be remiss without pointing out the ass-whoopin' my 'Noles handed out last night!! Go 'Noles!

I never noticed it before I started reading your stuff, but I see about 2-3 OU stickers on cars a week now, and I'm in GA. :)

Found your site by typing "Sooner Blog" at Google. Great game last night! Hopefully the beginning of a fun season.

You know I am Brazilian, so I don't know too much about American football, although I really try to understand it. Anyway, your love for this sport is so big that, now, I want to learn about it, because I think that I might really enjoy it too. I've talked to my husband (crazy for the Bills - yeah... he is from Buffalo) and he told me that he is going to teach me about the game (I mean, more than just the basics). :)

Gotta ask, why does the coach have troopers following him?

Oh, and I think I like those cheerleader outfits better than most current ones. They're quite cute!

Thank goodness the coaches just went with the Switzer-era polos, and not the Switzer-era haircuts....

OU must have really good PR.
For my money #1 should be the team that is currently National Champ.

Yeah, PR. That's it... Why didn't I think of that?
