As I've said many times before, the Pac-10 comes first. So I can even get it up for a Sun Devil or Trojan, when there aren't any more attractive options. When the opponent is Oklahoma, though, I don't care what team I'm rooting for. Take the worst political tendencies of the South and fuse them with the worst political tendencies of the West, then throw in a landscape that's flat, formless and either too hot or too cold? No thanks. I've known some very cool people from the Sooner state -- Keith Sadler, for example -- and respect the Flaming Lips' loyalty to their place of origin. But that doesn't stop me from reveling right now.
