As a middle/high school band director and an OU fan, I'd like to thank your press box twice for that classy move.

Don't get me started on the trend of playing ads/obnoxiously loud music at college games instead of letting the band play. Let's just pay the players and call it the NFL.

You just like the song because it's something your middle school band can also play.

You're proud of a fight song you purloined from another university? Typical of your ilk.

Bitterness is toxic to the soul. But I certainly understand.....

"On October 15, 1983 the University of Oklahoma football team visited Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma. The Sooner squad played poorly at first, and within 10 minutes Oklahoma State was winning by a score of 20-3. A policeman escorted Gene Thrailkill, the Oklahoma band director, off the field for not having a sideline pass. Before he was forced to leave, Thrailkill shouted to the band members, "I want you to start playing and don't stop 'til the team's ahead!" The band complied, and played "Boomer Sooner" non-stop roughly 300 times. The team responded by scoring 15 unanswered points against Oklahoma State. After an OSU fumble with 1:17 left in the game, Oklahoma scored a field goal to win 21-20. OU coach Barry Switzer awarded the game ball to the band (known as "The Pride of Oklahoma") for the non-stop effort and labeled it "The Day The Pride Won"."
