    is Dr. Pepper's new ad campaign.
    Revolves around a town supporting their team and hating" State"
    Brian Bosworth is the Sheriff, Eddie George is the Dr. Les Miles is the storeclerk.
    I have seen 3 today and they are funny.
    It apparently will build until the playoffs.

    The one with the soccer magazine under the bed and mom telling the kid that it was ok to experiment had me cracking up for some reason...

    Of course I like Dr. Pepper. I'll look for this commercial ***

    *** the ad better be good if it wants me to think favorably of their product with Brian Bosworth in any role. There was a time in my past when I had a RED HOT HATE for that jackass !

    You have obviously mellowed in your old age. I have not. It is interesting to me that Scott Hill still can't understand why I don't like Bosworth and don't want to be around him.

    I think "Snuffy" Smith & Barry got Bosworth that gig.

    Mellowed some yes but prolly more him being out of the limelight and not newsworthy to anyone anymore. However, I would still not want to be around him for any reason...

    Mid year opinion. I am on the record, I think, as liking Larry the prior Dr. Pepper ad campaign.

    So I tried not to over react when they announced the change. Thing is, it was supposed to be an ever evolving story.

    If I see the soccer “gateway ad” again, I think it will for the 1000th time. Yeah, it was amusing for the first 50 times. Not any more.

    #BringBackLarry!

    Or at least give him a cameo lol

    I have history with Brian Bosworth. Suffice it to say, I hope he burns in hell.

    While Scott was a QB at LD Bell, to my knowledge he never played QB at Oklahoma. He was, however, a great safety with lots of football smarts, unlike Roy Williams. Scott also was a recruiting guru, who I give credit for a lot of Barry's recruiting success. Ironically, it was DKR's major screw up in recruiting Scott that shaped Scott's philosophy and recruiting technique and which made him a successful recruiter

    I don’t know the story of DKR’s screw-up.

    Hill’s mother was the registrar at my high school. Every autumn Monday during the announcements, she would always tell us how the Sooners did. She would really lay it in thick the Monday after the Texas game. I sure thought she talked about her son being QB.

    Sabre - would you mind sharing the story of the DKR "screw up" of recruiting Hill and how he wound up at blow-u?

    Regarding Scott Hill:

    We in the marching band at Euless Trinity wrote our own words to the LD Bell fight song. The second line is, “Hill is a son of a *****”.

    Let me know if you’d like to know the rest.

    And BTW, (What’s that smell?) LD Bell stole their fight song from the Baltimore Colts.

    I almost cried I was laughing so hard at that one, the part where she talks about other sodas and the son says wait there are other sodas was hilarious.

    I don’t know anything about a “biscuit“. In 1980, I was a cub reporter covering the MacArthur Cardinals for the Irving Daily News. MacArthur’s defensive ends consisted of a senior who had never started a varsity game and Bosworth, who was a freshman. So in my season preview story, I wrote, rightfully so, that MacArthur was inexperienced at defensive end.

    Well, apparently this pissed Bosworth off. He put the word out in town that he was going to “get me”. I was told by a MacArthur family whom I liked and trusted that I needed to watch my back because Bosworth was serious.

    He was and always will be a POS. I lived through the Boz years. What a turd. Funny how many posters seem to think, as time has passed, that he's a really okay kind of guy. BS.

    I don’t wish him dead, but if I learned that he had gone to the “great beyond”, I wouldn’t feel bad about it.

    OK, but don't blame me. You asked for it. Be sure you sing it to the tune of the Baltimore Colts Marching Song:

    Bell sucks green donkey dicks,
    Hill is a son of a *****,
    Bell sucks green donkey dicks,
    We’d like to **** their drill team, too!
    ****! ****! ****!
    When we take them out to lunch
    They like to munch and hunch
    Those big, long, green donkey dicks—
    Fuckin’ suckin’ sweet Bell High!

    The latest Fansville commercial with the woman giving birth to a Tech fan is the best one so far IMO.

    My only interaction with Bosworth came in the 80s when he was with OU. My frat used to make t-shirts for each UT-OU game, and in '86 (I think) ours said "Eat Me, Boz!" on the back. Bosworth saw mine and called me over (this was during the game, mind you) and told me he loved it and wanted to buy it from me. I turned him down as I had no other shirt to wear, but I thought it was cool that he embraced his image that way and was just fine with the shirts.

    Yes, very fitting that a POS would embrace his POS behavior and demeanor causing some frat guys to say to him to eat them.
