Sore Losers = Oklahoma Sooners

NORMAN, Okla. -- University of Oklahoma president David Boren sent a letter to Big 12 Commissioner Kevin Weiberg on Monday, asking him to push for the Sooners' game against Oregon to be eliminated from the record books and have the Pac-10 officials involved in the game suspended for the remainder of the season.

I know David Boren, the University of Oklahoma president, is a former Democratic Senator from Oklahoma which may explain his actions. He is following his role model Al Gore another sore looser. I used to have a lot of respect for the Sooners and their fans but no more. I was at the game and have watched the replay on TV and for every mistake by the refs that favored Oregon I can point to a mistake that helped Oklahoma.

For example where the play clock expired before Oklahoma snapped the ball, along with the mistake on properly marking the ball giving Oklahoma an undeserved first down, not to mention the most blatant offensive pass interference penalty I think I have ever seen that was not called aginst Oklahoma..

As an Oregon fan said, "Win with class, lose with class. Don't act like you're special just because you're Oklahoma."
