ou fans

Posted on 1/3/2005 to Sports

I was watching one of the many College Gameday segments that's been on the last few days, and saw a shot from Miami. It was a horde of ou fans, with a number of them with their horns down.

Their team is in the national title game against USC, and yet they still do the horns down? Is this just because they have no sign of their own so they adopt a modified version of their hated rivals sign?  Or is it because even after 5 straight wins against Texas (mind you, Texas still leads the overall series by double digits), they still feel like they're fans of a second rate school, and are absolutely obsessed with Texas? It's almost cute, kind of like a little brother who is always trying to get the attention of their big brother.

I'd think that they'd be thinking of how close they are to a national title, and focusing their energy on the opponent still standing in their way.

I can never root for ou. Even last year, when a win by ou in the Big 12 Title Game would've likely put Texas in it's first BCS game, I found myself rooting for Kansas State. This season, I found myself being ok with not rooting for anyone in the title game, and just hoping for a good game, while wishing the best for all Big 12 schools. However, after seeing the idiot ou fans, I think that I might have to pull for USC.

Elliptical Cross Trainers

I am thinking of getting an elliptical cross trainer. Recommendations? Thinks to look out for?

Currently, I am looking at one of the models from Octane Fitness. Anyone else out there have experience with their products?
