    Besides a meteor, of course.

    Personally, I'm rooting for OU, just so they can lose in hilarious fashion to UCONN in the Fiesta Bowl.

    As another poster said: "I root for OU to lose every game, in every sport, every year."

    We have a wounded program, OU winning the Big12 twists the dagger further. Nebraska winning doesn't hurt us at all. In fact, it makes Texas look better.

    I couldn't care less about Nebraska's failed relationship with the Big12 or the reasons for them leaving. They are but a memory. A memory we own.

    What team directly competes for the recruits we do? Who wants to continue to successfully steal Texas HS players? Big12 OU or Big10 Nebraska?

    Did you enjoying Stoops smirking in the Big12 Preseason Media Conference this August boasting that the last time he looked, he had 7 Big12 Championship trophies? We have to deal with that weasel for years to come. Pellini and Huskers? We won't even notice that they exist after Saturday.

    OU winning hurts us. Rooting for OU to beat Nebraska is foolhardy.

    Us going 5-7 hurts us. OU winng that game will have zero impact, in my opinion.

    Hoping ou kicks a FG with 1 second left so I can watch the Pelini's heads explode.

    I'd rather NU win it, don't want OU with another one. We already own the Huskers so a final Big XII title for them will never give them smack rights on Texas.

    It's like kicking your dorky neighbor's *** repeatedly over the years, and then on the day his family is moving out of town he sneaks into your kitchen and swipes a twinkie from your pantry.

    Let him enjoy the twinkie. He may not see another one soon.

    As much as I dislike OU, at least they aren't taking their ball and going home like NU. So, I am rooting against that likeable fellow Pellini.

    I'm used to OU wining the Big 12, so one more won't devastate me. But to see Nebraska win one on their way out would just piss me off.

    People I NEVER want to see win. All are classless pieces of ****, who coach dirty football. with the exception of Osborne, who is just a sanctimoneous (sp) piece of crap, who cheated his *** off.

    I hope BlowU blows them out of JerryWorld.

    Frank Beamer is a great coach and has always behaved himself. He created a consistently winning program where there was nothing before.

    As for OU/Nebraska, I would love to see Pelini explode again, so I hope the officiating is really bad. As for OU, they have been one of the preeminent programs in the country for the last 65 years and that is not going to change, regardless of what happens in this game.

    Besides, I have been to Oklahoma on business a few times and like the place. The school is getting better and they are pursuing a path that may put Boone the Pirate Pickens in his final resting place with considerable discomfort and a feeling of failure. And that is good.

    Boomer Sooner for a week anyway.

    Not really rooting for anyone but I am use to OU winning the stinking Big 12 seems like almost every damn year. All they have to do is stop Nebraska's running game like Texas did, with their speed i dont see that as a problem.

    Don't want ou having any momentum. neb is just a team that chose not to invite us to the parties any more. Can't root for either, but probably better for us if neb wins and better for B12 if ou wins. I'll let my wife decide

    Nebraska won't be poaching recruits like OU would try to given their departure. Also, it would be funny to see the Pelini's all gaga yet knowing they cannot beat us.

    As much as I don't want OU to win anything, I don't want Nebraska to ride off into the sunset of the Big Ten with an untouchable, indefensible Big 12 Championship, so I'll show a little conference pride this time and prefer (not root for) the Sooners to win. If Nebraska wasn't leaving the conference and if hadn't been crying foul so much over last year's championship game, I'd be rooting for the Huskers big time.

    But that meteor sounds really good. You get to kill three birds with one stone: OU, Pelini, and Jerry's Death Star.

    Simple philosophy: Never root for OU unless it helps Texas and even then you never know (see TT in 2008) if what you are doing wont so upset the cosmic balance that it will bite you in the butt.

    So on Saturday its Go Big Red on you Huskers.

    A horde of bison-riding ninjas to storm in and loot and pillage everything in the stadium.

    Honestly, I don't care. I couldn't care any less. I won't even be watching.

    I want ou to lose every game, in every sport, every year, no matter what. I've learned my lesson the hard way.

    I don't care about Nebraska, I hate ou.

    I really don't care one way or the other. That being said, I could stomach a Corn win more than I could an OU win. Lesser of two evils.

    If NU wins, it will continue the trend of Mack beating the eventual Big 12 champ in the regular season.

    98 A&M
    99 NU
    01 CU
    03 KSU
    06 ou
    08 ou
    10 NU ??

    But, ou has to much and NU, not so much. ou by 24.
