I feel so old. Oh well, grandpa's are supposed to be old. :lol:

The CR seems so long ago. I miss my Road Dawg Willis. I Remember everyone thinking me and Mike would come back from our first duo road trip absolutely hating each other. :lol: But ended up going on trip after trip together until just a few weeks before he died. Still have the pic we took at the OU-KU game at Arrowhead on my desk at work. I think I still smell like cigarettes from sitting in the Riverboat casino watching Mike play those silly nickel slots all night. Drove all the way up to Cripple Creek the night before the AF game so he could play slots....;) His constant wardrobe changes that looked exactly like what he was wearing before.

What I would give to be annoyed by his habits again.

Miss ya Road Dawg! You're probably watching, but you would love Baker Mayfield man.

No it was not old Boomer. It was Rocky. Boomer has
left us also. Now I have Bella, & she is a sweet hart.
You know me & these Lab,s.I have Boomers ashes sitting over my mantle. Marsha made a deal with a picture of him & his
collar enclosed & hanging on our wall. I still tear up
when I think of that ole guy.

...AJ,...considering a get together of the old CR membership at this year's OU Spring "game", I use the term loosely because last years flag football exhibition was a joke.

But, if I can get enough interest by people responding to this thread would love to reunite with any of the CR or SWARM this Spring.

Propose meeting on the north side of the stadium before the so called "Spring Game."

Leave your grudges at home. If you can't, don't show!

If you want to reminisce, maybe renew old friendships or friendly acquaintances and gather as "old school" Sooner fans, you're welcome. Any Sooner Times MB members are encouraged to attend. Please, take the time, make the effort. I'll be there. Hope to see you. 2017 promises to be something big for the Oklahoma Sooners. That's something we can all agree on and use to forget any past disagreements and heal any misunderstandings.

SPRING 2017, NORTH SIDE OF THE STADIUM BEFORE THE "GAME."

CR, SWARM, SOONER TIMES MEMBERS. Let's do it!

I'm always at the Spring Game. I think it was last year or the year before that I ran into you and Donnie. I'll be there.

I don't have any grudges with anyone, not really sure why others had grudges at all. It was very confusing at the end.

I could use some Atomic Buffalo Turds Fly.

...has a date been set for the Spring "Game"?

I use the term lightly, because last year's Spring "Game" wasn't even close to a scrimmage. If memory serves I stated here that I would not be back because of the "flag football" aspect displayed last Spring.

In fact, I would not be returning except for this mini reunion of some old friends in the Crimson Reign.

I think this whole fiasco should be discontinued, but know that won't happen because of the DOLLARS involved. Even @ $5 bucks a head and with all the concession sales it represents a sizable payday for the University.

Unfortunately, that's all it is.

...looks like we've got 9 or 10 former CR members committed to gathering on the North side of the stadium before the Spring Prom, er, I mean Game. Might be more. Look forward to it. A genuine piece of Sooner fan history re-visited. Grateful for the SOONER TIMES allowing a chance for some of us to re-connect on the best Sooner MB. IMHO! I'll try & get someone to post photos. Appreciate your interest. Thanks for remembering us.

...the Crimson Reign was formed in 2000, the year Bob Stoops won his Natl Title. We were aggressive and moved quickly setting up a Tailgate Club.

We had a pretty damn good MB, but it was in the wild west days of the internet, and while there was a lot of good discussion and some cutting edge info, it was a little coarse and combative. Our former friends in the SWARM trolled it relentlessly.

Brent Venables, Bobby Jack Wright, Chuck Long, Jack Spates were some of the Oklahoma Coaches who made personal appearances to address our club.

We had some cool road trip tailgates that first year. The one at College Station was particularly memorable for me personally. When Torrance Marshall made the interception late to save OUr unbeaten season, I marched onto their "SACRED FIELD" with my coolie hat and both hands extended overhead with #1 fingers. The Cadets were not happy with me! Thought I might have to fight my out of there. Spy told me he saw it on an ESPN highlight.

We organized a couple of Bus Trips, one to Lubbock and one to Lawrence. One of the buses broke down on the return trip from Kansas, and some didn't get back to their vehicles parked at CrossRoads Mall until the wee hours of Sunday morning.

So many memories. The Crimson Reign definitely had its day in the sun. We were infamous and made a real impact, however brief.

Hoping to see some old friends a week from tomorrow. Want to shake your hands. Have a beer with you. Laugh with you, and remember when.

If anybody out there knows any of the old membership, please let them know we're going to meet and reminisce next Saturday on the north side of the stadium.

Look forward to it.

...to my disappointment, Fly won't be able to join us this Saturday. He's having surgery tomorrow. Some serious skin cancer removal. He's a private guy and probably be mad at me for divulging this, but I'll risk his chagrin for an opportunity to invite those of the Christian persuasion to remember him in your prayers.

The effectual, fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

He's a dear friend of mine. I love him & Marsha. He & I were the two most responsible for the enigma that was the Crimson Reign. If you share my affection for him, I'd personally thank you for mentioning him to the Big Guy upstairs next time you hit your knees.

Best wishes, old friend!
