08:20 AM ET 03.09 | In 2011, Bob Stoops has taken the first shot. The Sooners volleyed the opening salvos against their instate rivals, perhaps a harbinger of just how fun Bedlam could become this season. Walking past reporters after Oklahoma's pro day Tuesday, Sooner coach Bob Stoops quipped, "You see we got another [Big 12] championship banner up? It's not a South Division one, either." The remark was a perceived jab at Oklahoma State (and/or possibly Texas). OSU recently ordered Big 12 South championship rings for its players, even though the Cowboys didn't represent the South in the Big 12 Championship. Quarterback Brandon Weeden posted a picture of the ring on his Twitter page last week.

Anyone know why Okie Lite ordered rings? More of the "everyone gets a prize" mentality?

Why the dig? - the Stillwater tatt parlors lobbied for the rings.

The need for an tOSU thread is there, but then again probably none of them would comment, but I bet they would all be looking and reading them quietly.

I think some of them will face the music. There are some objective bucknuts.
