In the offseason, The Athletic’s Stewart Mandel left Oklahoma off his own way-too-early Top 25 and Sooner fans lost their collective minds. It was a meaningless piece of content in the grand scheme of things; just something to keep the college football content flowing in the offseason. But it was viewed as a massive slight by a Sooner fanbase that had convinced itself it was better off with Brent Venables than with Lincoln Riley.

Oklahoma fans spent most of the offseason in the mentions of any and all USC-related social media accounts cracking jokes at the expense of Riley and yelling into the void that OU was in a better spot.

Well, at the end of the third quarter on Saturday, in the team’s biggest game of the season, Oklahoma was in the worst of spots. It trailed hated rival Texas 42-0. The Sooners got the doors blown off for their third straight loss to begin Big 12 play. Message boards in Oklahoma were calling for the heads of every coach on staff.

And the ABC camera crew found one Oklahoma fan in particular in the crowd wearing a hoodie with Riley’s face on it above the word “traitor.”

As you can expect, the internet had fun with that one.

A number of folks in the college football media space — and even former Texas star Kevin Durant — were in awe of Oklahoma throughout the game, confused as to how poorly coached the team has looked in recent weeks.

And, of course, Riley came out looking pretty good.
