Longhorns getting their fill of 'Boomer Sooner'
Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin
AUSTIN, Texas -- Maybe the Texas coaches are using a little psychological ploy to get the Longhorns ready for Saturday's game at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas against bitter rival Oklahoma.
Throughout the week, Texas coaches have arranged to bombard the Longhorns in their locker room with a continued loop of "Boomer Sooner," the Oklahoma school fight song.
"I think it's kind of funny they make everybody sick of 'Boomer Sooner,'" Texas senior wide receiver Jordan Shipley said. "It's one of the things they do every year, play the fight songs of the other teams so you get sick of it. It kind of adds to getting ready to play every game."
