Everyone knows that the Red River Rivalry runs deep. It goes back over 100 years and the hate between Texas and Oklahoma is as strong as ever when it comes to sports. No matter if it is on the gridiron, hardwood, or the baseball diamond, these two schools flat out hate one another.
Oklahoma has obviously had more success in football over the last decade, yet head coach Lincoln Riley took a nice little cross-sport jab at the Longhorns following their 53-52 loss to Abilene Christian in the NCAA tournament on Saturday night.
Maybe Lincoln was knocking a few back enjoying the burnt orange tears or maybe he just needed a good laugh. Either way, it was funny.
Who knows, maybe Lincoln will send Abilene Christian head coach Joe Golding a nice cigar and a bottle of champagne for taking out their rival for him.
But you know who probably wasn’t laughing at this tweet on Saturday night? New Texas football coach Steve Sarkisian. And my guess is that he had a few angry boosters text him this tweet with some expletives.
The heat just got turned up even more for this gridiron match up which is still six months away.
But the bulletin board material has already begun! And we’re all here for more of that.
