They need to spice it up.

I would go for it if instead of showing sports and that gross burnt orange color all the time, they showed the cheerleaders in bikinis (or JUST the chaps!) 24/7.

Now THAT would get some viewership including this ol' Okie!

It is in Austin on Grande Network, also on Verizon Fios

People don't want to carry it because ESPN is charging too much for it, they need to lower the price

The Sooners will enjoy and keep the better football tradition.

Back to the "brand" argument.....all everyone else sees is "deflect, deflect, deflect . . ."

You keep paying your coaches more and we'll keep the better football tradition. I prefer this arrangement.

Scoreboard still says.....
55-17
38-26 (How was "Okie Memorial Stadium?")

Us Okies got no money but we can sure play some football!
You ain't got many okie players either.

OSU has 67 Texans on their roster, 32 okies.
BlowU has 59 Texans, and also only 32 okies.

UT at Norman, UT at Stillwater. lol

And yes, please keep your Top Ten Dirtiest College Football tradition. It goes with "Sooner" so well!

It'll develop, just as it took time for ESPN and it's later offshoot channels to be picked up around the country.

That's probably why Texas is insisting on holding the Dinky Dozen together for 6 more years.

Put her on y'all's new KOUSUX channel, and I'll definitely tune in:

Apparently, they were wise enough to go to the most tradition-laden program in college football and NOT get pounded 55-17 or even by Oklahoma State 38-26!

Now we're talking! As much as I hate the whole concept of the LHN I would even tune in if they showed that!...lol.

At least we got mudholed by mostly Texans, since the okies can't muster enough of their own homegrown talent.

Y'all are very welcome.

But that pic proves Oklahoma definitely does have some of it's own talent.
