NORMAN, Okla. – An Ohio State fan has some very kind words for Sooner fans.

An unidentified fan sent the Norman Transcript an open letter, thanking the Sooner community for their generous hospitality.

The Ohio State fan said that during their trip to Norman, Sooner fans were “kind, gracious, and generous in extending a warm welcome.”

To the Oklahoma Sooner Family:

I’m not able to speak on behalf of everyone from Buckeye Nation but, I personally can’t say enough about the kind and generous hospitality extended to me and my friends during our recent trip to Norman for the Oklahoma versus Ohio State game. Your fans are passionate about their team, demonstrate a depth of knowledge about CFB, and embrace the traditions of our two storied programs with class. Before, during and after the game everyone was kind, gracious, and generous in extending a warm welcome.

In my 40 years as a tOSU season ticket holder, having traveled to over 30 away game venues, I can honestly say that y’all set the bar mighty high. I only hope that Buckeye Nation is able to return the favor in kind when y’all travel to Columbus next fall.

Thank you for such a memorable trip and best of luck to the Sooners the remainder of your season, and their pursuit of a! Big 12 championship.

Boomer Sooner and Go Bucks!
