After a big win over the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the 2006 Big 12 Championship game, the cameras found Oklahoma Sooners WR Malcolm Kelly. It’s a good thing they did, because what they captured would catch fire in the early days of YouTube.
Since then, the Longview, Texas native’s words have echoed through Campus Corner bars and OU Alumni watch parties, and it’s actually reached the point that college football fans across the country associate it with the OU football program.
That appeared to culminate following Wednesday evening’s Cotton Bowl win over the Florida Gators, as the OU football players (who were small children when he did this) belted out Kelly’s bars and gained some serious attention in the college football world.
