/> One of the best ways to disguise your front-runner tendencies is to act like a cranky old-timer.

You might secretly know nothing about the Sooners aside from Blake Griffin’s name, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be unhappy with their performance.

Try this — whenever someone around the water cooler mentions OU hoops, just look at the floor, shake your head and say, "They’re good, but I don’t know ...”

Being disgruntled hides the fact that you have no idea what you’re talking about.

This is also known as the "How to be a Sports Radio Host Rule.”

Bandwagon Rule No. 3: Focus on the future.

Stick with that, and you’re solid.

There, you bandwagoneers, cap all of this off with an OU cap, and you’ll be safe from curious longtime fans. You’ll be able to follow the Sooners all the way through their long run in the postseason.
