If the realists and the pumpers ever left the safety of their computers and got in a huge brawl at the OUinsider recruiting luncheon....who would win and why?
Realists? Your realists = whinners
A mortally flawed assumption on its face really- People who are consistently negative in the face of constant evidence to their detriment are NOT "realists." Nice try.

I am just going by what they are calling themselves...not trying anything. I was just making fun of the people who have decided to "name" themselves in their ridiculous arguments that we all have had to endure over the years with more intensity lately....
Is there really any question? The Sunshine Pumpers of course
Gloomers are nothing more than whining, curb dwelling, slime sucking, braindead, haters of the tradition of OU FOOTBALL. They do anything they can to create negativity about the program. If the gloomers were a part of a team, they would be run off more quickly than a jack rabbit can dodge a car on a freeway.
"can't we all just get along?"
Really? I'm not sure that the people you are referring to as "pumpers" refer to themselves as such....
Im in the middle, so I will just hit whoever gets close.
There is nothing more dangerous in this world than a man with nothing to lose.
Ok I will remember that...and that the realists aren't actually realists because everyone is a realist...thanks. I should have phrased it as what the two sides call each other. I will work on my accuracy next time I am making light of the people who make the board so much more fun....

...........for those who would be involved, don't turn your back on jpr no matter which side you're on.......
Ha. I feel the same. Probably closer to the "pumper" range of the spectrum though but think its silly to classify myself in either group. Just love the Sooners, go to the games, and get frustrated at losing.

BOTH sides would refer to themselves as realists (because by definition they speak to their own reality and value assumptions. The problem is that these assumptions do not match. And they are (and should be) both offended by being "labeled" either way, because the intent of the label is to somehow downplay the importance of the persons comment because it comes from a "insert Label here".... folks have differing opinions, they can be frustrating, and repetitive, doesn't make them any more or less valid.
I've seen the pumpers. My money is on the realists.
I predict that you would be the first to get knocked the fugg out.
I know what u are saying. Like the little bauld guy on Johnny be good. During the fight at the end of the movie he just stood in one spot and kneed anyone that got near him in the nuts. Ron Burgandy would be proud.
A lot of older members go to the luncheon. I'm 43 and a big guy and love a good melee, but I'll get on whatever side Bone is on.
The realists would win. Because sunshine pumpers wouldn't care if they got a$$ kicked
On this board you must agree with everyone or you're wrong.
Exactly! Pumpers were the band geeks in HS.
No racist..you'd go after the white people. Because they still owe you, right?
Actually it's more likely that the "realists" would give up before the fight ever started after deciding how gloomy things are.
