True. The Sooners are our "pro" team. No need for anything/anyone else.

Yeh, the difference is the Sooners (along with Bama and Columbus....and to a much lesser extent the Horns) actually have the tradition in college football to back it up.

... and TCU, Ohio St., and LSU don't?

The Sooners have more titles, sure. But that doesn't mean the others don't have a rich tradition.

Touristy areas don't always work for pro sports...since people in those places more than likely are transplants and still have loyalties to the teams they followed before moving. This is the reason that pro sports in Florida get such lukewarm support, especially the Rays and Marlins, and even the Bucs only draw when they're winning...because most people down there are transplants from the northeast and tend to follow NY/Boston/Philly teams.

either L.A. or San Antonio, people say that California already has 3 NFL teams which ties for the most NFL teams in a state and thats why L.A. should not get an NFL team because it would be California's 4th NFL team, but I live in Orange County, I don't enjoy having to commute all the way down to San Diego for an NFL game every year, it is still like 100 miles away, and Oakland and San Francisco are 500 or 600 miles up North, and California has the biggest population in America, so it can have a 4th NFL team, we have 5 MLB teams in the State, 4 NBA teams, 3 NHL teams, so why not 4 NFL teams? The NFL is the most dominant and most popular out of all the Big 4 Professional Sports Leagues in North America(NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL) and it does not make sense as to why there is no NFL team in the Nation's second-largest Media-Market, Metropolitan area, which includes both Orange County and L.A., the vast majority of people say that L.A.-Orange County will not support an NFL team, how come? why not?

Because L.A. had THREE teams and they all left.

And I wouldn't exactly say vast majority, but there are alot of people saying so. Obviously, the NFL has survived without a team in the L.A. market, but it's inevitable that it will get another.

Let me rephrase: The Horns, Frogs, Buckeyes, and Tigers all have rich tradition.

OU just has rich(er) tradition.
