    Georgia And Oklahoma Commonalities

    1. In the 1980s, the two schools broke the NCAAs hold on TV rights giving them to the individual conferences.

    2. Both schools participate in the only neutral yearly rivalry games, Red River Shootout and The World’s Largest Outdoor ****tail Party.

    3. Speaking of those two names, they were taken away due to our PC culture but are still referred to by fans.

    4. Both have to travel to the home state of said rival Texas/Florida.

    5. Both schools hate orange. Texas/OSU for OU and Florida/Tennessee/Auburn/Clemson for Georgia.

    6. Both schools have an annoying little brother school that they pound yearly, OSU and GT. Even got a GT clown posting here. Wonder if any OSU fans have stopped by the Georgia board.

    7. Both fanbases are largely conservative.

    8. Both teams went through a decade of shit in the 90s.

    9. Both teams have live mascots, Boomer/Sooner and Uga.

    10. Both teams are considered blue blood college football programs.

    Kirby is in his 2nd year. What is a boomer sooner? Ive been wondering this but never looked it up. No, no OSU fans have been by that I've seen. And that wrambling wreck guy just wants to live his dreams thru OU. I guess if their AD and fans ever got the balls, theyd let go of that triple option dipshit. It worked in the 60s but not today.

    During the Oklahoma land rush, Boomers were those who waiting for the gun to go off to begin, and Sooners were those who started ahead of the gun.'

    Sooners are the land thieves.

    P.S. Your welcome.

    Boomers were those that came to Oklahoma legally during the land rush. Sooners took the land early, usually by night. Thus the name of this site.

    Wait a minute. That's just us.
    Georgia has 30 bowl wins to OU’s 29 and Georgia is still Top 15 in all-time wins. Pretty damn good. UGA has 2 National Championships, 3 others they could claim and two Heisman winners, one widely considered to be the best RB of all-time.

    Yea it was less than exciting, but Ill give him that one. He came in and had to overhaul the program. The players have developed tremendously under him though. I never saw this season coming, but Ill take it lol. Already done more than Richt did in 15 years. Wasnt Riley promoted from within?

    I didn't say Georgia wasn't a good program. I wasn't even taking a shot at your thread. I've just heard a lot in the media that this is a matchup of two of college football's all time great program. I just wanted to push back against that narrative because Georgia isn't on our level historically.

    When I wear anything with the G on it, I still sometimes get asked if it’s the Packers. It’s worse in OKC metro sometimes because Guthrie High School uses that G too. I’ve made the mistake myself and was told the G was for Guthrie. Anywhere in the SEC/ACC states they know the difference.


    In 1964, Vince Dooley saw the G logo that the Packers just rolled out and asked for permission to use it.

    The oh-so-forgettable movie with Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman called Far and Away depicts the land run in Oklahoma. In 1889, land in Oklahoma was opened up for settlement to anyone able to "stake a claim". Sooners had their land picked out and "jumped the gun". Boomers waited until the gun was fired to tear off and stake a claim to land. Landthieves is named for the Sooners...who steal ground 10 yards at a time .

    I love that part of the country, N Georgia, The Smokies, and Asheville, N carolina. That is some beautiful country, especially in the fall, no wonder the Cherokees loved that area.

    Yes, Riley was OU's offensive coordinator...in his first year as coordinator, we made it to playoffs. This is his third year on-staff. Bob Stoops saw his head coaching potential, and in the craziest, most unselfish move I've ever seen, retired in June to ensure that the entire staff stayed together (not enough time to put together a new one) and handed the keys to the Ferrari over to Lincoln Riley. He could've stuck around for one more shot at a national championship to go out on, but wanted OU to have continuity, skilled players and keep Riley, who is honestly an offensive genius.

    They rip off everything. For a bunch of liberal arts majors, they've got all the creativity of a pile of dog crap. Hell, even their stupid fight song is a rip off of the Yankee "Battle Hymn of the Republic". Stupid mutts can't get anything right, including my ****ed order at the drive-thru.

    ...until 1988. Herschel Walker was a beast, but almost every objective and unbiased observer would concede that Barry Sanders is the greatest college running back of all time. Now he doesn’t boast the greatest college “career,” but he needed only one season to show that he was the greatest to ever carry the pigskin. Barry set records in 1988 that will likely never be broken.

    As far as the NFL is concerned, it’s no coincidence that Walker’s last All-Pro selection occurred in 1988, Sanders’ final year as an amateur. Barry Sanders made the All-Pro team (either first or second team) during every year of his short career, and he was the league’s rushing leader in four seasons despite the fact that he played behind an average line and with an almost non-existent passing attack. Barry Sanders, although not the most decorated, is the greatest running back of all time at the college level (and NFL level, in my opinion). I would’ve loved to see what Sanders could’ve done with the 90’s-era Cowboys dynasty.

    It’s not safe to be an oSu fan right now. They lost to OU. They’re likely posing as new UGA fans on your board. Beware of suspicious “Dawg” fans talking about you having the most powerful offense in the world or how good your farm animals look.

    I lived in Collegedale, Tennessee for some years. Traveled to the Smokies often. That area of the US is beautiful country. Too bad it's infested with hillbillies.

    Not the same but parts of eastern OK/western AR do resemble the southern Appalachians. Some even call the Ouachita Mtns the "Little Smokies"

    If you consider about 20-25 schools blue bloods then sure. I think most draw the line at about 8.

    Hilarious how the Dust Bowl is the perception of Oklahoma. Not even close. Would argue the only “dusty” area of the state is the panhandle.

    The Oklahoma land rush started in 1889. My family moved from Banks County, Georgia to get in on the action. My grandfather was born in the same year (1889,) eventually settling in Leflore County, OK.

    Lmao we know better than "most powerful offense". Maybe efficient and effective but not explosive.

    Well the Little Sahara (the area I think you're referring to) and any damn area next to a gravel road by an oilfield lease that's well traveled.

    Still remember watching and hearing all about Walker in the national press. Guy was awesome.
    But at the same time was thinking "This freshman we have here, Marcus Dupree, is gonna be better".

    Damn cheeseburgers and pizza ruined all that.

    Like Switzer said, Dupree lacked mental toughness which Herschel had a ton of. Herschel was picked on as a kid due to his accent and size. It fueled him, unlike Dupree. Dupree also had that lowlife pastor who is sitting in jail right now in his ear.

    Actually the Black Mesa area in the Panhandle is a ruggedly beautiful place much like NM or AZ, also the highest point in the state.

    Georgia is not one of the blue bloods of college football. Most every list I've ever seen does not include Georgia. Georgia is a blue blood only in the eyes of their fans.

    To each their own then. Top 15 in all-time wins, #2 in SEC Championships, 2 MNCs, 2 Heisman winners, and 30 bowl wins is blue blood to me along with the atmosphere in Athens.


    If Georgia isn’t then a school like Nebraska who is still way up in win totals shouldn’t be either. Nebraska is irrelevant.

    I didn't bold it, but I was referring to the "dusty" part. Anyone who has spent time in Oklahoma around those gravel roads to oilfield locations knows exactly what I'm referring to - not saying you didn't, just going over the part about Oklahoma being not dusty.

    I agree that Georgia is very unoriginal, in almost every way. Their mascot, a bulldog, is as unoriginal as it gets. They're not even the only bulldogs in their own conference. They stole their "G" from Green Bay. No identity of their own.

    Georgia has 2 MNC, 3 others they could claim. If Nebraska is still a “blue blood” then that moniker no longer means much. Nebraska isn’t shit and damn near zero recruits would pick them over Georgia now.
