Boomer Sooner



'Twas the night before the BCS and all through the land,not a Gator was stirring, not even the band.

Their Jockeys were hung by the locker with care, in hopes that the Sooners soon would be there.

Tebow was nestled all snug in his bed, while visions of glory danced in his head.

And Meyer in his kerchief full of Florida pride, and Bob and the Sooners ready to ride.

When down in Miami there arose such a clatter, Harvin sprang from his bed to see what was the matter.

He realized the Option was gone in a flash, and Tebow's dreams of running had just been dashed.

The Gator running backs trembled as they watched the show, A Crimson and Cream luster set the horizon aglow.

When what to their wondering eyes should they find, but a miniature Schooner, seven National Titles behind.

With a wizened old driver, skilled in leading his troops, they knew in a moment it must be Bob Stoops.

More rapid than Texas his players they came, and he whistled and shouted and called them by name.

"On Bradford , on Gresham, now Madu and Murray! On Chris Brown! On Iglesias! On Stevens and Curry!

To the top of the BCS! To the top of it all!

Now dash their hopes! Dash their dreams! Dash away all!"

And then in a twinkling, the Gators fought back a scream, and Tim Tebow saw the last of his Heisman trophy dream.

The defense drew in their breath and looked all around, and realized that their "savior Meyer" was nowhere to be found.

Bob's eyes how they twinkled, his coaches how merry! As they carried on the legacy left them by Bud and Barry.

Tim's sad little face and a fear in his belly, he shook on the field as his knees turned to jelly.

He spoke not a word, and the ball they couldn't carry, Stoops filled up the scoreboard and then turned to Barry.

And laying his hand on the shoulder of his friend, he gave Switzer a nod and said, "Like Missouri again."

Bob sprang to the Schooner, to his team gave a shout, to the BCS they flew and left Florida down and out.

And we heard him exclaim as he drove out of sight,
"Boomer Sooner to All and to All a Good Night!"


PS, I have to admit, I am not a huge sports fan. I merely went to the games purely as a social event. But no matter where I will ever live, I am always a Sooner at heart! Go OU!
edited to add: I did NOT write this. My friend Ashlee sent this to me. She is an OU alum as well, she even cheered there!

basically it comes down to the two groups of people of the land run in 1895.
