07:26 AM ET 10.22 | Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops has returned to a familiar theme. [Stoops] has once again called out his home crowd in advance of an important home game against Texas Tech. Before the Sooners' November 2008 game against the Red Raiders, Stoops said Oklahoma fans weren't "overly ruckus," and the crowd responded by creating a loud, crazy atmosphere. ... Oklahoma again faces a top-10, unbeaten Texas Tech team this Saturday, and Stoops was asked about the crowd at his Monday news conference. "It'd be awesome if we could recreate that atmosphere, and everybody jump in and do their best to try to affect the game, and, you know, build some excitement and all," Stoops said. "We've gotta do our part. It's a lot easier to be excited when you're playing well. We've gotta hopefully give them some things to cheer about."

the jump thing is what big game is referring to, a you tube sensation since copied elsewhere and grown stale.....but certain undercover obnoxious red raider fans will again hijack the sooner radio sideline interviews......with their incessant, loud, monotone red raider chants that will visibly iirritate the sooner intervierer and interviewee....a youtube classic.....tt 42, ou 24....

Sop spending so much time worrying aboutwhat other people do, and worry about putting a good product on the field. Worrying about other teams is exactly what sunk the Devil, Phil Fulmer.

Zero U ......................... 42
Sand Aggy ................... 38

Their OL is 25 lbs/player heavier than Sand Aggy's DL. Zero U won't have to throw any passes until they face 10 guys in the box. 8-9 guys in the box, they can still average 5 yards per run.

And Sand Aggy's D is just overall poor. Worse'n ours.

Maybe it's 35-31; still Zero U by 4.

Bitterness will flavor all you sup until you release its hold on you. Phlab Phil is gone from CFB coaching. Let it go, Bammer. Let it go.

You discount the opportunities for OU to frack it up and aid the TTech total.

"Hey Bob.. over here.. let me give you some advice. Look, all your fans are f'n fair weathered fans who don't have a f'n loyal bone in their f'n body. They don't know how to be excited because they are too f'n stupid. What you gotta do it tell them they can kiss your f'n **** for all you care and then remind them that you love them." Your former friend Bo.

Sand Aggie's d is better this year. I'm not a Tubberville fan but he left the defense in much better shape than he found it.

Still think the land thieves win.

so did the meeting sound like this?:
"So why are we sucking so much?"
"It's the fans"
"exactly what I was thinking, I'll have a talk with them, great meeting fellas"
