Thats good. Someone else mentioned that little red is no longer a mascot for Nebraska because of liberals. What happened with him? I take it he was the guy dressed in red overalls?

Little Red was the mascot at OU, until about 1972. Little Red was always chosen from the American Indian population of the university for his traditional dancing skill. Nothing and no one did a better job of motivating the fans than Little Red, with music from the band.

Little Red was put out of business by political correctness and an accommodating court order in 1972, I believe. Needless to say, all OU fans were hurt by this, especially the little kids who rightfully thought Little Red was too cool.
