Bomar Is Gone, but Not Forgotten

Sooner or later, it had to happen. Oklahoma's schedule blends the old — Brian Bosworth and Billy Sims — with the new — Adrian Peterson and, hey ... is that Rhett Bomar? By gosh, it is! The hard-working car dealership employee himself! As if the Sooners weren't a preseason laughingstock already, there's the booted quarterback front and slightly center in the 2006 poster. This could be a collector's item, especially if you live in, oh, say Austin or Stillwater. And take note of this: two weeks ago we went to the official Sooner site to see about acquiring the poster. The instructions were to simple enough, but we never got around to it. Then after reader Trey fired a copy our way and we saw old No. 7, we decided that acquiring the poster was a must! Well guess what? This limited edition beauty is not available. We suspect the only place you can find one is in the dumpster behind the OU marketing department. If anybody actually has a copy and can provide us with a cleaner image for the site, please fire it our way. The address: dawizofodds (at) Posters featured thus far: Toledo, Vanderbilt-Tennessee, Washington State-Washington, Brigham Young-West Virginia-Northern Illinois, Oklahoma State, Northwestern, Louisiana State, UCLA, Ohio State, Mississippi State, Auburn, South Carolina, Arkansas, Florida State, Florida, Iowa State and USC.
