This Sounds like it could be funny. Couldn’t make the game my daughter had croup. Could you describe it?

There's been several really funny videos this season but this one was BY FAR the most clever. I bet most of the OU fans there didn't even get it...

OU band plays Boomer Sooner, the video board shows Shazam thinking. It pulls up "Boola Boola" by the Yale band.
That’s hilarious! My 17 yr old absent-mindedly began whistling that song the other day (stuck in his head). I told him to stop and then reminded him we don’t sing (or whistle) the Yale fight song in our home. He got it right away.

Has OU and Yale ever played each other in a sport where a marching/pep band is present? Seems like that could get rather awkward...

Boola Boola is not actually Yale's fight song. Internet research says they have one called Bulldog and one called Down the Field that they play. Plus, only part of Boomer Sooner sounds like the Boola Boola song

It's literally on their bands fight songs page...

And you're right, the 2nd part isn't from Boola Boola, it's from a UNC fight song...

Correct that its an old Yale fight song. According to Yale people its never played anymore. Bulldog is their main song. So I doubt there would be any confusion if we played. They actually took it from someone themselves.

Just in August Boomer Sooner was ranked the #2 best fight song in all the land :)

Let's review, the 2nd most penalized football program by the NCAA, with a mascot of people who broke the law and stole land, a stolen fight song and the university is currently not even listed in the US News ranking of Universities because they got caught presenting bogus numbers.

Maybe #2 in regards to how many times it's played...
