My fellow blogger and good friend Adam Rittenberg is stirring it up over at his Big Ten blog after Oklahoma jumped past Ohio State in the most recent Associated Press poll.
Rittenberg raises some interesting points about the comparison between the Sooners and the Buckeyes in a post on his blog today.
Both programs have won national championships in this decade, but have had more embarrassment in BCS bowl games recently.
I'm not going to takes sides in his argument, other than to say he makes some interesting points.
And he might have a better appreciation for all things Sooner if he spent some time at Campus Corner in Norman and maybe stopped somewhere in the state for an onion-fried burger. That might help his gain a better understanding for the Sooners' program.
