Oklahomers

Stoops and his pride made waves recently in an interview during a Sooner Caravan stop in Tulsa, when he admirably (if not futilely) defended his conference against the big, bad SEC — winner of seven consecutive BCS national championships.

“So they’ve had the best team in college football,” he said. “They haven’t had the whole conference. Because, again, half of ’em haven’t done much at all.”

The man does have a point, yet the rest of college football nation shan’t ever question the SEC’s media-anointed superiority.

Unless, of course, you live in Oklahoma.

A recent ESPN.com poll
asked, “Which conference is stronger overall in football?” The
overwhelming majority — 83 percent, in fact — said the SEC.

When broken down by state, 49 of 50 agreed.

The
one exception? None other than the Sooner State itself. Fifty-three
percent of Oklahomans echoed the sentiments of their patron saint and
all-around thinker, free- Stoops.
