The rivalry between Oklahoma and Oklahoma State on the football field isn't something that's going to die any time soon, but it seems that some members of the schools are finding ways to get along with one another off of the field. All it takes is one common bond, and it seems that bond is hating Texas.

Two people who definitely seem to share this bond are former Oklahoma head coach Barry Switzer and the Godfather of Oklahoma State athletics, T. Boone Pickens. Both were at a luncheon on Wednesday, and while there Pickens shared an email he received from Switzer after Oklahoma's 55-17 victory over Texas earlier this season.

In the email Switzer told Pickens to make sure that Oklahoma State didn't beat Texas "as bad as the Sooners did because we want to keep Mack Brown as coach — we want somebody that both of us can beat."

Switzer, never exactly a shy person, encouraged Pickens to tell the story. The next week Oklahoma State beat Texas 38-26 and Mack Brown hasn't been fired as of yet.

So it seems Switzer's master plan is working.

And cue the University of $EC fans. Sell-out bitches just wish they had an ounce of integrity as the great University of Texas.

I'm not an OU or OSU fan but this is hilarious. OU has 1 coach with as many NC's as Mack and 2 others with 3 times as many. What Barry said was funny; too bad the Texas fans all had humorectomies before they were old enough to post.

Idiots!

OSU has only beaten the Horns 2x in Mack's 12 years.  So figure T Boone will take that record.  Barry is even worse.  OU was criminal under his leadership and he tried to bring it to the Cowboys.  He couldn't screw that up but sure tried.

Mack Brown's record at UT is second to none in college football

Lost anything I may have had for Brown when he whined and whined after the beat down Bama gave his Horns in the BCS game. Guess they didn't think tackling hard was prohibited against their spoiled kids. Good job Texas, you killed the SWC and now the Big 12.

It does'nt matter whos the coach at Texas. Their record against OU 59-42-5 and against OK-State 22-4. So it does'nt matter who is the coach they
both have losing records against Texas. So if you like losing play Texas and see what happens.They should feel lucky to be able to play such an enriched program.And lets not forget who showed OU how to run a wishbone offense.Hook'em

Oh how soon the Texas faithful forget. McBrown IS THE CLASSLESS clown.

Who was the coach that threw his conference mate under the bus in in a failed attempt  to worm his way into the NC Game in 2008?

Who spent an entire week bad-mouthing OU on ESPN?

Who was such a snake he was interviewed while OU was playing and kept pointing out how much better Texas was?

Who SHOULD have waited until the SEC Championship Game to run his mouth, especially when 'Bama was leading UF in the second half? With ESPNs help he just might have gotten an OU/UT re-match. BUT, not a word the entire week leading up to the SEC Championship Game which proved his ONLY motive was to bad-mouth Oklahoma.

Well the little-weasel got what he deserved last year and is getting it again this year. I only hope aTm sticks up his sorry rear with a "Red Hot Poker"...maybe he can blame his assistant coaches???? 

GEAUX TIGERS...

HEY, HOLESTAMPEDE......how many titles has Slim Pickens money bought you Texass and OU's other bitch, the cowgirls????

OU OWNS THE Big 12 and we will again this year after taking care of that team that pretends to have a rivalry with us.   Isn't the definition of a rivalry when both teams win tough games?   What's OSU's record against us......17-86?????

OU IS THE BIG12 when it comes to football!

T. Boone wrote the University of Texas a gigantic check.  (100 million total)

Then he wrote Oklahoma State a gigantic check as well. (400 million total)

Keep working the banquet circuit Switzer, maybe enough jokes will get Oklahoma their first penny. 

OU gets  to email jokes and nothing more from T. Boone.  (zero dollars total)

Texas gets a check with lots and lots of zeroes. 

The T. boone hatred (100 million) of Texas is so obvious.
