"Home of the Sooners" on the way out

Coach Bob Stoops is asking Oklahoma fans to break a new tradition and sing the proper words at the end of the national anthem when Air Force plays at Owen Field on Saturday.
Many fans have taken to shouting "home of the Sooners" instead
of "home of the brave" at the conclusion of the song.
Stoops issued a challenge Tuesday that "hopefully with our
people being here and Air Force coming here, we'll surely be loud
in singing 'home of the brave' and nothing else."
Stoops says he has great respect for the service academies and
for the commitment and sacrifice of their students.

    I will take my hat off to any Sooner fan if they really do this. I think that would be great.

    I think that Coach Stoops should be praised for this. I know that Sooner fans all over the world would be and should be proud to sing "Home of the Brave"!!
