Don't try and change the subject.
When I was playing, I preferred the day games as well.
Night games consume your entire day. Do not think that a player or coach just goes about life as normal on game day when the kick off is at night.
When I was playing, night games (7:30 or later) my day went like this:
Wake up eat breakfast at Student Union or Cafeteria. 8AM
Team meeting at 10 AM
"Voluntary film study" at 11
Lunch with team at Noon
Free Time after lunch to 4 PM
Position meeting at 4 PM
Position films at 5 PM
Getting game face on at 6 PM
Warmups start at 630 PM
Team Pregame meeting 7:00
Coin Toss 7:15
Kick off 7:30
Game over by 10 PM
By the time you got done with everything, you got to spend a whopping 3 hours with your family and friends that traveled to see you. and to see you play.
It is a very long day and it is actually very draining too.
If I was a coach, I would not want to be playing night games simply because TV says too!
1. OU was never interested in joining the SEC!
2. The only way we would move is if OSU came along. It wasn't a favor to OSU...but was a way to keep the in-state rivalry...and to keep the Oklahoma government happy.
3. What gifts did OU give OSU?
4. You should probably just shut up and stop making yourself look like a fool.
Prime time games are great exposure. But Oklahoma doesn't need that exposure. I'd say a couple prime time games are good, but as many as we played last year? No thanks. It's too easy to get knocked off that pedestal once you're put on it. I'd love some more "under the radar" games.
Well my first post was somewhat in jest, but I always get a kick of this pretty standard response.
Yet OSU is the one run by ONE donor because apparently the alumni base for years was unable to donate enough of money to pay its own way to run a BCS conf ath dept.
Maybe the rest of you should start mowing some yards and delivering some pizzas and stop sponging off T Boone
It was a joke. Bedlam & Flame board. I thought the last sentence would give it away.
Maybe any "Sooner" with 3000 posts on an OSU board needs to take his own advice and shut up and get life. Oh and quit brown nosing
I knew your answer was tongue in cheek and pretty observant about the 3k posts. I'll say crazy is a little more palatable for an okie u poster than a bunch we've had here. Brown nosing...now that was funny.
Looks like you already forgot about your buddy telling you to stop digging your hole.
One donor? Please, tell me more how the world works.
Boone is the one mostly in the news and everyone takes that to mean he's the only one and that no other college in the nation, besides Oregon, has donors. Typical, uninformed view. And when people go spouting off about such inaccuracies on message boards, it really shows what kind of person they are.
Stop sponging off a donor? Is that what you all do at OU?
My guess is that a very minute amount of okie u donations come from your pizza delivery people and yard jockeys. And for the record titan, you and yours been "sponging" off the gaylord teat for a hell of a lot longer than Boone's been supporting OSU...just sayin.
The Gaylord family gave OU over $50 million in the course of three decades.
Boone gave over $400 million just in the last decade.
Bit of a difference. If Oklahoma is sponging off a teat, then Okie State bit off the entire udder and devoured the digestive tract.
Maybe you should consider what that kinda money would buy all those years ago...bought okie u a football team. About what I'd consider from a 5 year old and by the way, you're about 30 mil off.
Christy Gaylord Everest
School ties: Attended University of Oklahoma and Colorado College
Reported wealth: N/A
How made money: Third-generation boss of the family-owned Oklahoma Publishing Co., which owns Oklahoma City's Daily Oklahoman.
How much donated: Gaylord family has donated nearly $80 million to OU, including $18 million to athletics.
$18 million to athletics!!!!! No way!!!!
T Boone only gave $265 million solely to athletics.
Guess old lady Gaylord better crack open another piggy bank...
He did say over 50 million.
When you step foot on the OU campus and gain your degree or advancements through them, then talk to me.
Boone has given to oSu over $3 million.
Thats his average toilet paper roll also.
