Default Re: Of a Sequined Hat and Ears to Yank

Re: the PC culture. That's not a comment on the current status quo. Rather, it has much to do with the less "wholesome" traditions that were eliminated by Presidents past. I think Banowsky ended "Green Acres". "Happy Trails" went away sometime in the '90s, so that was probably Boren. Both Boren and Joe took away some of the pep from the Sooner Showmen. Heck, when TD left the poor folks in the band were required to wear to show in khakis, vest, dress shirt AND tie.

Losing TD felt like the last straw. It felt like they were eliminating everything that had grown organically with the fanbase regarding OU Basketball.
