Former OU football coach Barry Switzer’s video got the biggest laugh of the day.

“I want to wish you a happy 90th birthday,” Switzer said to Pickens. “I know it’s a big day for you, and I want to be a part of it. I have always said I wish you had been a Sooner. We have a geology school (at OU). It’s a little closer than going on to Stillwater another 80 miles.

“I know they named a stadium after you up there, but just think about it. If you had been a Sooner, you would have had the greatest rushing team in college football named after you: the wishBoone. How about that? Instead of the wishbone, it would have been the wishBoone. Happy birthday, big boy. Have a good one. Take care.”
