And that should lock this thread. A little harsh on the Brutha even for your surly self
You obviously don't know brutha
On this board you must agree with everyone or you're wrong.
No the realists would expect to win. The sp's wouldn't care.

the pumpers would continue to claim victory even when they are getting pummeled.
since i'm in the middle , i think i can view this objectively
if it comes down to a spelling bee then i'll go with the pumpers
if it's an all out brawl i'd have to go with the realists
I don't know who would win but I don't find anything more annoying than the so called "sunshine pumper" who does nothing more than snipe at anybody who posts even mild criticism leveled at the coaches or players. Basically the type of poster who rarely posts anything other than these sniping posts.
There are several other characteristics of this type of poster. First, they will gladly throw the players under the bus to defend the coaches. The generic post is something like "Coach X wasn't out there fumbling the ball, throwing interceptions, etc).
Secondly, these types are happy to rip other teams and coaches with the same types of criticisms that the gloomer doomers might level at our own team. Ironically these sunshine pumpers have the same mentality and thought processes of the pumper types of the very team they are criticizing.
It really seems that the harshest of the gloomer doomers live for criticizing the program while the worst of the pumpers seem to be completely obsessed with criticizing the gloomer doomers.
Best post of the thread
So why do I read so many posts from "realists" stating things like "this team will never win another NC with this coaching staff", or "Bob can't win (bowl/big/road/home) games anymore", or after game 1 of this year "this team will be lucky to finish in the top half of the conference".
Doesn't much sound like expecting to win if you ask me.
Crazy thread, but great post.
I'm a real adult fan, not like all you other spoiled babies. You don't know anything about me, but I can make wild accusations about you.
I was wondering if the Pumpers are related to the OSU Sheep Humpers?
I'm with you bruthman. There are definitely a few idiots on the extremes who I'd like to smack if they got too close to the middle ground.
Pretty sure that anyone that sits around and piss and moans about every little thing is a puss and would run and hide when the sh!t hits the fan. The realist's, the ones that tell it like it really is...lmao
OOOOOOOH, more internet toughness. You gotta love it.
Just a response to a post that was intended to belittle positive posters! I said nothing threatening or challenged anybody to a fight so were do you get this Internet toughness from? Pretty sure my response was not in regards to anything you said until now so maybe you should read all the posts before you go off half cocked...You need to be aiming this kind of talk at your buddy BYORK.
This is the best post of the thread.
Realists they are not. They are gloomers/doomers. Heads in @$$&$. They only know negativity. Realists???? Give me a freakin' break. They are also whorns that try to create problems on OUr SOONER SITES.
Nice try pumper!
"Slime sucking"? "Brain dead"? I don't recall ever seeing anyone insult you. Yet you insist upon hurling insults at anyone who dares to voice an opinion different than yours. I recall less than a week ago reading your vow to rid this board of anyone who disagrees with your opinion. What's next? You want to rid the world of Jews and blacks as well?
Administrators, I've asked you to assess this poster as to his treatment of others on this board and what, if anything, he has to offer regarding any positive discussion actually pertaining to sports. What is your conclusion? I see repeated antagonizing remarks and insults that contribute nothing towards constructive conversation or debate regarding football and other OU sports and that ultimately serve only to further polarize the members of this board. Do you agree with my position? If so, can you have this poster removed?
You have 43 posts to your name. "OUr Sooner Sites"? Really?
Once again, do you have anything constructive to offer regarding actual football talk? Or do you just sit around and insult other people on the Internet? Do you even see the incredible irony in your comments (all 43 of them thus far)? You disdain others who you say insult our coaches and players by in turn insulting those people offering their opinions. How does that make you any different? Can you explain yourself and your thought processes in a logical and rational manner?
Also, can you say anything about actual football? Anything? All you do is complain and insult people! How are you any different than those people who you are continually criticizing? My God, man! The horse is dead! Let it die. Let it die...
What exactly are you doing drone? You really need to go back to your whorn site and sing the praises of Mack Brown. You have blown your cover gloomier
