About Grant Johnston:
Conference: Local Meteorologists
Who he is: Back-up weatherman at KFOR
Biggest Strength: Living life according to the gospels of Jesus Christ.
Biggest Weakness: Made a personal website about that chosen life. It's kind of creepy.
Fun Fact: Grant has apparently shut down said website. It could be that the thing hijacked browsers and made small children pee themselves. Or it could be another case of Patrick getting public figures to create stronger barriers between themselves and the public. You decide.
(3) Wayne Coyne vs (14) Byron Houston
About Wayne Coyne:
Conference: Amazing Oklahoma Musicians
Who he is: Lead singer of the Flaming Lips
Biggest Strength: Writing odd-ball tunes about the beauty of life, death and robot Jesus statues playing checkers on Mars.
Fun Fact: Although he didn't graduate from high school, he gave the 2006 commencement speech for the artsy Classen High School. In it, he talks about selling pot and a "urine bath" from a young Mexican boy. It's worth a listen.
About Byron Houston:
Conference: The Carl Monday XII
Who he is: Former OSU and NBA basketball player.
Biggest Strength: Basketball ability, virility.
Biggest Weakness: Loves himself a bit too much. No, really. Loves himself a bit too much.

(7) Linda Cavanaugh vs. (10) Lance Cargill
About Linda Cavanaugh:
Conference: Senior Citizens of the Oklahoma City Media
Who she is: Longtime evening anchor for KFOR Channel 4.
Biggest Strength: Uhm...call me crazy, but I would have to say it's her daughter Ann Cavanaugh.
Biggest Weakness: See's been around way too long. And for some reason, the whole "Strangers in Their Own Land" now kind of seems cheesy.
Fun Fact: She and Mike McCarville are the only people still living who reported from the original land run in 1889.
About Lance Cargill:
Conference: PHoO (Political Hacks of Oklahoma)
Who he is: Disgraced Speaker of the House
Biggest Strength: Soliciting Ideas
Biggest Weakness: Paying taxes

(2) Bob Stoops vs. (15) Jamelle Holieway
About Bob Stoops:
Conference: The Bud, Barry and Bob 3

Who he is: The gold standard for option quarterbacks
Biggest Strength: The triple-option
Biggest Weakness: Getting people to recognize him
Fun Fact: Holieway became OU's starting quarterback after an injury to the original starter. His play that led to a subsequent national championship caused the displaced quarterback to transfer. And if you think Jamelle has problems getting recognized, you should see the problems Troy Aikman has now.
