Bedlam! In! Stillwater!
— Gabriel Malor

America's best-named college rivalry is back tonight. My beloved No. 3 Oklahoma State Cowboys face the line-jumpers from Norman---those degenerate ball-suckers---the No. 13 Oklahoma Sooners for the Big 12 conference title. A substantial enough win here could also send the Cowboys to the BCS championship game.

The story of Bedlam:

In the Year of our Lord 1900, Oklahoma A&M veterinary medicine professor Dr. L.L. Lewis brought together a group of students to participate in the first Oklahoma Territory Track and Field Meet. Held on May 4, 1900, the event included Alva Normal College, Central Normal of Edmond, Kingfisher College, and the Old Enemy, Oklahoma University.

The prize of the tournament was a silver cup donated by a local jeweler named Douglas. A&M won the meet and returned to Stillwater with the traveling trophy.

In 1901, A&M won again, and a third consecutive win would mean permanent retirement of the Douglas Cup in Stillwater. The third meet was held on May 23, 1902, with the Aggies winning the most points. Oklahoma, sore at their drubbing, filed a protest based on the pole vault competition not having been completed due to darkness. Nevertheless, A&M claimed the Douglas Cup and returned victorious to Stillwater.

The next day the Sooners held their own pole vault competition and declared themselves the victor of the tournament. Several weeks later, the Douglas Cup was stolen from its place in a glass case at the A&M chemistry lab. Suspecting that Sooners had taken the Cup, a group of A&M students made a daring raid to Norman. They retrieved the Cup and buried it under Old Central for safekeeping.

Ten years later, when excavation was being done for Gundersen Hall, the trophy was found. Today the Douglas Cup resides safely in OSU's Heritage Hall.

Bedlam football starts in Stillwater in an hour. You can get the game on ABC.

4 Unranked ISU BEAT then #2 OSU. ISU had never beaten a team ranked higher than #7. Alabama's only loss was to LSU (and they beat themselves). OSU does not deserve a shot at the National Championship.

21 Gabriel, I'll be pulling for the Sooners, of course.  History is on my side, statistically, but the cowchokes got themselves some good players this year.  To other non-Oklahomans on here, the very term Sooner designated a land run participant who left before the gun, a cheater so to speak.  Everywhere outside Stillwater, it is considered a term of endearment.  My granddad, an OU alum, always referred to the Stillwater team as the Aggies.

46 Tell you what:  People can talk shit about LSU's offense all they want, but that is one nasty D they've got going there.  Kicking game is rock solid, too (in fact, all of their special teams are bad ass; I swear it sometimes seems there's more than one #7 on the field on some plays).  You can win it all with just those phases of the game.  Look at the PPG they generate even though they can't pass to save their lives.

Oh, and the Big 12, the Big 10, and the PAC 37 or whatever the fuck they're up to now all blow.  Title game should definitely be LSU-Alabama.

OSU's cowgirl is quite nice though.

Yeah, they're really good, but didn't even win their division much less their conference.  OSU could very well leapfrog them if they give OU a beatdown.

Also agree on the Jarrett Lee thing - dude was dealt a pretty tough hand and took it like a man.  Gotta respect him keeping his head up.

It's lame.
Gingrich was on first, and didn't step on his private parts.
Invoked "Jeffersonian" solutions, and said Washington was the best president, wants to return education back to citizens (not the states, primarily).

Santorum is on now.  I get stressed out listening to him.  Which is why I'm responding, he's in the background.

FWIW, I'm pretty much done here too. The GOP field is a joke and so is much of the commentary I've read here.

The so-called brainiacs have twisted each and every way in order to defend their logic and it's become tiresome.

Try backing a candidate that's not popular and you will probably be met with cat-calls.

Very unfortunate.

Rivalries are cool.

Moving on and apropos of nada mucho, I saw Stevie Ray Vaughn play San Fran's Warfield Theater in 1984 and at one point during the show he laid his famed worn-out guitar with the rainbow initials flat on the stage, put one boot on each side and started yanking up and down on the strings as if he were skinning a live wildcat with a rusty knife...and the sound was actually melodic!

So...yeah. We now return you to Stillwater.

192 How 'bout this, Tide fans? OK State didn't play LSU - so we don't know who would win. Alabama didn't play ISU - so we don't know who would win. So, let's have OK State play LSU, and Alabama play ISU. If OSU and Alabama both win, then they're co-champs. If LSU wins, they're the champs. After all, then they would have then beaten both Alabama and OSU. Why should they have to beat either one of them twice? If ISU kicks 'Bama's butt, then, well, welcome to the Big 12....

Wouldn't be fair. Everyone knows the refs always cheat in favor of ISU. That's why they have such a fine record.

195 We kicked gooner ass!! If Alabama makes #2, it's perfectly logical. If OSU makes #2, ecstasy!!

196 The way the OSU fans behaved after the game proves they don't have the maturity to go to any bowl game nor do they have the right to inflict their savagery on any bowl town.

The State Capital got to be Oklahoma City in much the same way. The railroads stuffed the ballot boxes during the special ballot on whether to move the capital to a different city.  The folks in Guthrie, the old capital, did not want to give it up.

So, the railroaders took to horse and promptly stole the State Seal and brought it to Oklahoma City where it now resides. Or at least that's the Okie version of it.

198 It was a great game -- Congratulations, Cowboys! -- and I hope OSU gets the chance to play LSU for the national title.    But I confess I'm selfish and the thought of another 9-6 triple overtime game puts me to sleep.

199 So, when OWS types are better behaved than OK State fans ...

201 Great Game OSU.  OSU deserves to be in the NC game against LSU.  But and there is one BUT.  OSU fans and Stillwater showed little class and lots of "breads and circus" mentality after the game.  13 injured 2 critically due to the celebration of winning a game. A game. Am I the only college football fan in total shock at the way OSU fans, alumni and students carried themselves after the game? Absolute immaturity on display.  So it was OSU's first title of any type in football and the worst loss by OU since 1945, this does not absolve the after game antics by OSU students, fans, alums...OSU won a game yet 13 were injured 2 critically due to the celebrations, sounds like something one would expect in Compton not Stillwater.  OSU should be ashame.  It's just a game and college football fans everywhere deserve better.
