Looks like it’s about that time, sports fans.

Time to put football behind us and jump on the red hot bandwagon of the No. 2-ranked Oklahoma Sooners basketball team.

Now that signing day’s hype is behind us and Sam Bradford is successfully hidden in a secret lair on campus until next season, you can feel secure that football will be there in the fall.

So, why not join Mr. Monday in letting everyone know that you knew all along that the Sooner hoopsters would be this good.

But there are some guidelines when it comes to easing your way at the front of the cheering crowd, while not looking too obvious.

Subtlety, people, which of course is Mr. Monday’s strong suit.

Bandwagon Rule No. 1: Act like you’ve always been there.

Mr. Monday, of course, knew Blake Griffin was going to be good since he was a taking Algebra I at Oklahoma Christian School.

He also reminds Mr. Monday of Alvan Adams and Wayman Tisdale all rolled into one.

Bandwagon jumpers can camouflage themselves by name dropping from old teams and old players. Saying "he reminds me a lot of ...” is a great face saver at your OU basketball pep rally. Let your friends fill in the rest.

Bandwagon Rule No. 2: Complain about the team.
