New OU video board looks great

OU-Chattanooga is only a few minutes from kickoff. OU’s new video board looks spectacular. Great picture. Large print. Cool graphics.

However, the new intro video has gone away from the “There’s Only One Oklahoma” of recent years. The new video is solid, and Barry Switzer says, “There’s only one Oklahoma” at the end. But the previous theme of old Sooners introducing current Sooners, and current Sooners introducing old Sooners — “There’s only one Keith Jackson,” Jermaine Gresham might say; “There’s only one Jermaine Gresham,” Jackson might say — has been scrapped. Which is a shame.

The new theme: “It’s Time” is OK but not nearly as cool as “There’s Only One Oklahoma.”:

Other observations: the new video spelled Gresham’s first name “Germaine.” Chattanooga is wearing gold jerseys, making this one of the few games in OU history in which neither team is wearing white. The fans booed the Mocs when they came onto the field, which is disappointing. Chattanooga did OU a big favor by agreeing to play.
