Chomp! Chomp!

In a land far far away (from Florida), there is another land where they have cowboys, dust, and jokes about Texas not falling into the ocean because of Suckage.

This land would be called… Oklahoma.

And in this land there is a Kingdom, comprised of one King, one Queen, two princesses and two princes, who are HUGE… SOONER fans. The Sooners and a Conference called the Big 12, in their eyes are the fairest in the land.

‘Tis fine to be a Sooner fan and to love the Big 12 Conference, but there are other lands…

Like the Land of the Gators and the SEC, the SEC where the teams eat their young early in the season, ensuring that they rarely get their fair due.

And in a short time, said Gators and Sooners will mix it up on the old grid iron to determine, truly which one is the greatest in ALL THE LANDS.

And I, Bou, of Boudicca’s Voice and the Great State of Florida and the SEC, the best damn conference of all conferences, am challenging JayzaPiper of Food ‘n Drink and Oklahoma and the Big 12, to a little bet.

The loser?

The loser must post on their blog all that is right with the winning team and pile big praises upon the winning team’s conference. There is no such thing as doing the losing post ‘too big’.

An Ode would truly be appropriate, if one can be written. I would like to see myself writing one, should I lose, however, much to the likeness of Calvin having to recite four verses of Ode to Tigers to Hobbes…begrudgingly . (Since I have zero creativity in the writing department, any advanced assistance in this department would be greatly appreciated…)

The winner will link to the losing post, so that all can bask in their glory.


To JayzaPiper of the Kingdom in Oklahoma, where the Sooners rule in the Big 12, from the House of Boudicca… I say…

As a true Texas fan, I loudly type - BEAT THE HELL OUT OF OU!!!

And leave the Conferences out - OU still sucks.

(eye roll) nice...nothin like a t-sip to spoil some fun, i'm not your typical Sooner, i'm fairly objective...i took the crimson glasses off a long time ago, and as much as i've grown to like your team and coach, that burnt orange fanbase still has some growin' to do. much as you'd like to be us and in try to show that Big 11 school the door and shove them on their way out.

Now, that i've taken care of the house cleanin'...

" names Sooner
an it might be a sin
but i'll take yer bet
and yer gonna regret
cuz we're the best thats ever been."

Oh i know, i know...we're just a bunch of hayseed suckin', overall wearin', tumbleweed herdin', teepee shootin, toothless, inbred trailer trash up here in the Sooner Nation...and our conference is extremely overratted, cuz we don't beat the livin' snot outta each other week in and week out like the Olympian SEC does. Its really shocking that we can even find the field...let alone the end zone.

You eat your young? i seem to remember back in September when Ole Miss came to town and didn't seem to go down right, in fact, they didn't go all. Gator puke. What's that? Ole Miss was unranked? Man, that SEC must be wicked tough! What with you guys rolling LSU, Georgia, Spurriers new love, and will we ever survive. What with us losing to then #5 and now #3...and we've only gotten worse since then. We are completely outmatched in this every position...i worry that we should even show up...kinda like last time we went to Florida and played a team we were completely inferior to...hell...we had to GIVE them 2 points just out of respect to Bobby. Took some pretty nice hardware out of the state that day...but we were utterly overmatched...just like this coming Jan. 8. But soft! How shouldst we ever win a bowl game again! And how so against such a formidable foe! Woe...Woe...i am in great peril of heart...

"Hitch up the wagon Maw! I see sum Gatuhs that need wheel marks acrost'em...yep...better pack a lunch...this'un make take awhile."

Teepee shootin'? Bwahahahaha!

In the SEC, it matters not whether a team is ranked. A team can be falling apart, and when its playing another SEC team, all bets are off. Any team could find the inner strength from within and beat any other team... with maybe the exception of TN this year. Good Lord, that was just a train wreck.

So let us see, let us see!

I had to come outta lurkdom for this. Go Gators!!!

I'm not a gator fan. But I just LOVE to watch OU lose. Comes from 11 years of living in Tulsa amongst the red/white fans: rednecks and white trash.

Kickin' Ass and we don't care about your names...

Sorry blog momma- I gotta go with my home state on this one.

I don't have a dog in this fight (Gig'em Aggies), but seems to me that "Sooner" or later you'll end up writing that Ode to OU and the Big 12, so you might as well start you composition now to avoid cramming later.

Florida ain't got a prayer.

I've posted a rough draft for your review.

Posted by: Bob at December 28, 2008 09:33 PM

Yep we lost at home to Ole Miss, we turned the frickin ball over 5 times and they got by on 1 blocked extra point.

Florida will make a mockery of Okie-homer, just like we did to OSU, (over-rated state university).

The Big 12 can play offense, but has never faced the speed of the Florida D!

GO GATORS!!!!!!!!!!

Y'all have to go over and read Bob's ode he wrote for me. Its frickin' funny.

But, what PT said... we'll see what the Sooners think when they come up against our big D. The Sooners have been a touchdown machine, but lets what see what happens when they come across the Gator Defense.

And our Offense ain't too shabby. The Sooners better be ready to try to shut us down.

An "objective Sooner fan" would understand that OU shouldn't be playing in Miami, just like an "objective Sooner fan" would understand that a Big 12 "Championship" game between two teams that both lost to Texas by double digits was a farce.

OU didn't have to play a true road game against either of the other two best teams in the South. Tech got plowed on the road and that takes them out of the conversation. Texas lost on the last play on the road. OU lost by 10 *at a neutral site.*

OU thrives when its offense can put enough pressure on the other teaam to make them press and make mistakes because they are afraid of getting too far behind and then OU steamrolls them.

The one time that the other team didn't collapse and kept punching back, OU folded like the gutless wannabe bullies they are and got outscored 25-7 to end the game (with the seven coming on a drive extended by a ludicrous running into the kicker penalty).

Florida will not collapse. Florida will keep punching back. OU will fold.

Go Gators!
