BlowU (University of Oklahoma or OU nickname)

Football teams from the University of Texas and the University of Oklahoma (“OU”) play each year in the “Red River Rivalry” game. “BlowU” (or “blOwU”) is a popular derogatory “OU” nickname, cited in print since at least 2003.
Wikipedia: University of Oklahoma
The University of Oklahoma (OU) is a coeducational public research university located in Norman, Oklahoma. Founded in 1890, it existed in Oklahoma Territory near Indian Territory for 17 years before the two became the state of Oklahoma. As of 2007 the university had 29,931 students enrolled, most located at its main campus in Norman. Employing nearly 3,000 faculty members, the school offers 152 baccalaureate programs, 160 master’s programs, 75 doctorate programs, and 20 majors at the first professional level. David Boren, a former U.S. Senator and Oklahoma Governor, has served as President of the University of Oklahoma since 1994.
The school is ranked first per capita among public universities in enrollment of National Merit Scholars and among the top ten in the graduation of Rhodes Scholars. PC Magazine and the Princeton Review rated it one of the “20 Most Wired Colleges” in both 2006[9] and 2008, while the Carnegie Foundation classifies it as a research university with “very high research activity.” Located on its Norman campus are two prominent museums, the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, specializing in French Impressionism and Native American artwork, and the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History, specializing in the natural history of Oklahoma.
The school, well known for its athletic programs, has won 7 NCAA Division I National Football Championships. Its baseball team has won 2 NCAA national championships and the women’s softball team won the national championship in 2000. The gymnastics teams have won four national championships since 2002 and its football program has the best winning percentage of any Division I-FBS team since the introduction of the AP Poll in 1936, playing in four BCS national championship games since the inception of the BCS system in 1998.

texas tech = ITT Tech, Tortilla Tech
UT= t.u., that OTHER school in Austin, or teasip U, in reference to the fact that kids with money, i.e. the ones that would sip tea go there.
i like to refer to Southwest Texas as UT-San Marcos, cuz all the kids that go there really want to be Longhorns but couldn’t cut it.
There’s a junior college in Bryan about 10 min from A&M called Blinn that we call Blinndergarden or Blinn-the school for dysfunctional Aggies.
we used to call UTSA oootsa!
The ‘sips like to call OU, blOwU, now, i don’t have a problem with the Sooners, probably cuz A&M hasn’t been owned like the ‘sips have.

Texas 21 BlowU 17
I had a dream two nights ago about the upcoming game. The first play was a big run up the middle by BlowU. I thought…oh no…here we go again.
What is going on with blowU?

They only have 4 defensive players committed, including 1 JUCO. Only 4 Texans, too, and none on defense. They managed to take 5 WRs, 3 TEs, and 2 RBs. This is how Jerry Jones would put together a recruiting class.
