07:43 AM ET 11.20 | It's Bedlam week in Oklahoma, a state even the Oklahoma State Cowboys admit mostly belongs to the Sooners. And [Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Todd Monken's] opinion on OU and the rivalry, as always, was entertaining. "The bottom line is we live in the Sooner state, and that alone [ticks] you off quite a bit," Monken said. "They are the team down the road that's traditionally put itself in position to win championships. That [ticks] you off, because you want to be that team. And the reality is you have to listen to it year-round how great it is down there. So the reality is, you want to be the champ, you got to beat the champ. That's what you do. That's the way it is. You got to go in there and play physical, outplay them and outcoach them."

On average they do that about once a decade! Don't see it this year as we had to play in Stoolwater two years running and its SR day. Look for Landry and his corps of wideouts to TORCH the cowgirls! 57-33

Hmmmm, this is the first time I've seen any indication that Okie Lite doesn't like the fact that they are not considered the biggest rival to THEIR instate biggest rival. Sure it's been there, I've just never seen it. What say ccg, D2? Who do the land thieves consider their biggest rival?

Sounds a little familiar to another school that resented the fact that THEIR biggest in state rival did not consider them so.

Jerry Jones is gonna sue you for referring to the mascot of his Dallas professional football team without his permission.

Our rival is TEXAS, not okie lite, they are not and never have been a rival. The rivalry was initiated by the conference and TV to replace the loss of our other rival Nebraska after they split the conference and the Shuckers and us no longer played after Thanksgiving! We are 82-14-7 against osux lifetime, that DOES NOT make one our rival!

Just channeling my inner Mother Goose. ;)

There once was a man named Sweeny
Who spilled Gin all over his weenie
He thought he'd be couth
And added Vermouth
Then slipped his girlfriend a martini
