Default Real Ones Will Know

Well, since we have our second straight week without a mid-week game, I thought it would be fun to play this game...



Here's mine:

I am guessing that is the infamous game when B Knight went ballistic because the clock didn't start on time. I believe OU got an extra second or 2

Hollis was before the Thunder and the games were actually attended although not as well as they were in the early Tubbs years.
The local radio guys now will talk about a game for a minute and then move back to the NBA. The main guys in town don't even go to the games. I remember when Eschbach chose to cover Billy instead of going to the Citrus Bowl when Switzer was coaching. It was the Clemson game that Jamelle was shaving points.

The local media is so putrid. What does it take to get some talk about the top 10 hoops program?

1. I can remember sitting in my car and listening to WWLS feature three solid segments in a row on that night's game with the Aggies. It was 2004, and Eddie's best team was coming to Norman. I was waiting on my gf (now wife) to get out of class.

I can't remember the last time Al or Jim came to a hoops game. Might've been Kansas 2016. Eschbach goes on vacation now instead of covering the football bowl game. Times have REALLY changed.

Jamelle and the Citrus Bowl. That's always been the darkest of the late-80s Switzer rumors. A bunch of the assistants went on a coke bender in Orlando. Jammin' was always subject to rumors because he failed to hand the ball to Lydell Carr at the 1.

2003. We beat them three times that season, and all the games were really close. The General had a point. There was some nefarious dealings with the clock in Norman. It was more than just a couple of seconds. Hollis hit the shot over Kasib Powell (I think that was his name). Andre Emmett and Martin Zeno. They had a hell of a backcourt. Zeno may have been a couple of years later. Can't rememeber.

RMK's first four teams in Lubbock were really good. Sweet 16 in 2005. Got Pittsnogle'd in ABQ in the Sweet 16.

Hi, Crawfish!

That's the 1985 Midwest Regional Semifinal at Reunion Arena in Dallas. Good guys in OT.

Tisdale vs. Karl Malone was an incredible battle. At the time, it felt like that last shot bounced for an hour before going in.

Arizona never bothered me because we're 3-0 against them in March. Kansas had so much luck going for them in '88, I don't think anyone was going to beat them. Even KU fans admitted for several years that they had to pay back the college basketball gods for that title. They got karma #1 handed to them in 1997 when KU was clearly the best team in America even though Arizona took them down in the Sweet 16. I remember watching that game thinking there was no way a team that good could lose that early. '84 NC and '97 KU were the best teams in my lifetime to not make the Elite Eight.

Sooners played La Tech and Karl Malone twice that season. In the NCAA obviously but also in the All-College at the Myriad.....84-72 OU wins.

I typed "OKLAHOMA ARIZONA 1988" into Google and it's one of the first images to pop up. It's from the Tucson paper.

I didn't care for them in '88 even before we played them, after hearing about how they self-promoted their "St. Lute and His Leaping Apostles" nonsense. I have relatives in the Seattle area with UW ties, and they were telling about how smug and arrogant that program became within the Pac-12 ranks. They had these dancing buffoons at the end of their bench called "The Gumbies" - and the national media started loving them. When OU's guys invented the late-game victory shuffle, the same media types ripped us for being showboats.

I moved to Albuquerque that summer ('88) and read some stories about their loss to us and the shocker to UNM and the Pit on Jan. 2. Let's just say they weren't too big on giving credit where credit was due. It was especially absurd about how they almost seemed like the Lobos should have apologized to them for winning.

They had a local writer in Tucson who took shots at OU back then, especially in '89 when OU played football out there (and lost, unfortunately). That whole week was filled with garbage about how trashy OU was, and it also included a blatant lie about a game the same writer covered in Norman in '74 when OU played Utah State and won, 72-3. The clown actually said OU ran it up, when the truth was that Switzer had his starters out of the game quickly after halftime. They also played up the OU-UofA non-conference rematch at the LNC (Stacey and Mookie's senior year) as a battle of their good to OU's evil.

Arizona really had a bad attitude towards the state of New Mexico, sort of like how UT people look down on the entire state of Oklahoma. It was especially obnoxious when Lute (or Loot, as I call him) was their coach and they had that entitled, KU-like attitude. It does make me proud that St. Loot had a losing record against OU, despite being one of the ESPN golden boys of college coaching.
