I'm a die hard OU fan and former OU student during the heyday of the wishbone.  Billy Sims played and won the heisman trophy when I was at OU.  I love OU football and have been doing this page for about 18 years.  I do the video editing and production.  Glad you stopped by!  Leave some comments and help me make this a great place for OU fans to visit Smile
