What is the rivalry with OK and NB?

I saw a bumper sticker on a car once that said something like:
If NB was hell and I owned OK, I would rent out OK and live in hell.


Or something like that. Anybody down that way must know what I am referring to.

When Nebraska and Oklahoma were both in the Big 8, then Big 12 conference they had a great football rivalry. I sure miss those days, some great football was played between Tom Osborne and Barry Switzer teams.

College football!

OU Sooners and University of Nebraska Cornhuskers. A football rivalry that lasted almost 100 years while the two schools were in the same conference.

As far as the “Oklahoma is OK” on the car tags, that started in 1967, and it was sort of a shout-out to the play “Oklahoma!” and its theme song, although the correct phrase from the song is Oklahoma, OK!”

If I remember right, the phrase on the car tags was eventually changed to “Oklahoma, OK!” to match the song, but then it disappeared altogether at some point and was replaced with “Native America”.

While “Oklahoma is OK” was never the state motto, it is or at least was the state slogan. The state motto is “Labor Omnia Vincit”, which means "Labour Conquers All Things" (yawn).

I worked for a while at the New London Sub Base and had a sailor say to me one hot day, "I'm not scared of going to hell, I spent a summer in Oklahoma."

We visited Tulsa in May and thought it was great. Don't know about Aug.

I almost forgot, I still have my last old Oklahoma tag hung up out in the garage. That was a long time ago.

I guess the old memory-bone still works once in a while!

Oh, and Tulsa in August? It’s hot, hot, hot.

100+ and high humidity is not uncommon.

Say what?

The abbreviation NB stands for New Brunswick. Canada.

Nebraska's abbreviation is NE.

I saw that. The Texas motto is "Friendship". Pretty lame, in my opinion. I thought it was "The Lone Star State" but I guess that's something else.
