Sooner Letter Slams Texas' Math Skills, Fails Miserably

The Red River Rivalry in Dallas, Texas. The only neutral site game in college football worth a shit in the regular season.

In the spirit of the University of Texas’ friendly rivalry with the University of Oklahoma, the editorial boards of The Daily Texan and The Oklahoma Daily have exchanged editorials. The Red River Rivalry, played every October in the neutral meeting ground of Dallas, is a time-honored tradition that brings out both the best and, some would say, worst in Texas and Oklahoma football fans. In anticipation of Saturday’s game, both editorials are running in Austin and Norman today. 

From the Daily Texan:

Hey Texas, how’s it going?

We just want to say before we get into this, from the bottom of our hearts — thank you. Really. Your ultimate fail of a season is providing us so much entertainment. Whether it’s watching you cheat your way through the Iowa State game or trying to understand your strange belief that you can actually win the Big 12, you never cease to amaze us.

But really, we have to give it up to you. You’ve beaten two of the worst teams in the Big 12. That’s an accomplishment. It takes work to be as bad as you guys have been this season. And for once, hard work in Texas is paying off!

It’s almost as impressive as your ability to dwindle all the talent around you.

And here's the attempted money shot, in full:

Math might be a little hard for you right now, so we’ll break it down for you. If you guys were to double your national championships, you would still be short of Oklahoma’s seven. It’s all right. If it weren’t for bad teams like you, good programs like ours wouldn’t have anyone to entertain us when we’re bored.

C'mon, staff of The Oklahoma Daily! Y'all are college students, and as such, are supposed to be well versed in the wonders of Wikipedia. Texas has four national titles. Don't worry though, you guys are probably going to drill Texas on Saturday.

If you jiggle your monitor, does that make a jiggly gif?

I was hoping you'd break this out when I saw the subtitle in the Buckshots! I love Chevy Chase.

I was just hoping no one would beat me to the punch. It's so fitting!
And man, Chevy's stuff on funny.

You may be right.  All these years...  *smh*

Well, Texas shouldn't be able to claim that 1970 National Championship.  That should belong only to Nebraska and The Ohio State University.

If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.  ~ Bruce Lee

LMAO oh man.  The rest of this is pretty funny (though I don't consider benefiting off of bad calls cheating unless you paid the refs to make said bad calls).
Now children, what's 4 times 2?

If Ohio State and UM did this during Hate Week, the editorial in Ann Arbor would say,

Yeah, Sooners could have scored double what they did and still would not have won.
