New Poll Reveals Majority Of Oklahomans Root For Teams From Oklahoma

9:41 AM EDT on September 1, 2011

So the University of Oklahoma apparently commissioned a poll this spring to determine what college team Oklahomans cheer for. The results were released this morning and lit up twitter, with OU flacks highlighting the fact that about 3/4ths of Oklahomans cheer for the Sooners.

I think I can speak for all OU fans when I say, "SUCK IT OSU! WE WIN! THERE ARE MORE OF US THAN YOU! KNEEL BEFORE OUR GREAT NUMBERS! WE COMPRISE 77% OF THE PEOPLE IN THIS STATE BASED ON A STUDY OF 650 ADULTS WITH A MARGIN OF ERROR OF 3.8%!!! BOOMER!" Someone needs to put that on a sign, baby.

Continued after the jump.

Anyway, I'm not really clear as to why this is supposed to be interesting. Rooting for a particular team is not in itself inherently virtuous, and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out there are clearly more OU fans than OSU fans. Nonetheless, The Oklahoman's Mike Sherman is fascinated (sort of, I think that's an ironic headline) by this, and other things, like the fact that OU fans sometimes root for OSU and OU fans are more likely to use Facebook than Twitter and OU fans are more likely to use a smartphone than to get online and oh man is this silly stuff.

I thought it would be a good idea to add some more questions that should have been asked in this poll, but were not. Here they are:

--- Do OSU's new football uniforms look more like something from an energy drink commercial or something from a futuristic action film?

--- Is Ronnell Lewis eligible yet? How about now? Is he eligible yet? PLEASE tell me if Ronnell Lewis is eligible yet? I'm freaking out here, man!

--- Would you dare to offend Mike Gundy's wife by wearing an opposing team's shirt at his house?

--- Would you say you are VERY WORRIED or EXTREMELY WORRIED about Landry Jones' upcoming wedding affecting his play?

--- Anybody have any "I'm A MAN! I'm FORTY" jokes that haven't been used a million times already?

--- Hey, remember that show "Where In The World Is Carmen San Diego?" Whatever happened to that?

--- How many sheep have you had sex with in the last month? (This is not an OSU joke. I'm just really into beastiality.)

--- Anyone here actually a Tulsa fan?

--- Of all your gray hairs, how many of them came from OU's kicking game last year?
