This week we're back to profiling a school that is oddly referred to by its inverse initials. I couldn't tell you why the University of Oklahoma is shortened to the colloquial "OU", but it's kind of fitting since it's the flagship university of such a backward state anyway.
The university was founded in 1890 on 407 acres donated to the state from the residents of Norman. Today, OU has a total enrollment of 30,303 and ranks 101st on US News & World Report's list of best colleges in America. It is one of the few Big 12 schools that can compete with TCU in terms of endowment funds, but OU's $1.2 billion is obviously not nearly as big as TCU's when you look at it proportionally to enrollment.
Here are a few videos to get your better acquainted with our new friends north of the Red, and Sir Wesley ought to be profiling their football program later today:
...and this one, which wouldn't let me embed but you need to watch.
