There have been plenty of great college football head coaches who have described their team's approach and preparation to facing each opponent as going to war, and with the unparalleled intensity and rabid fandom you're sure to find abundantly in the nation's biggest rivalry games, it's not hard to see why.
Few sports fans are as loyal and passionate as those in college football. With the dedication to their teams and the passion in heated rivalries, there's a reason fan bases are often referred to as "nations".
With that kind of pride rampant throughout the most competitive college football programs, sometimes it feels like a flag is the only thing missing from these being real nations.
That being said, Reddit user u/toms47 made this leap by designing college football flags that could represent the 10 Big XII universities on the gridiron, all of which are inspired by defining and iconic traits behind each school and its respective home.
Sooners Flag Concept
If you're a Sooners fan, you have to love seeing the football program's iconic Sooner Schooner represented as the sole centerpiece of attention and inspiration in this flag design. It's a sharp, simplistic look that embodies one of Oklahoma's rowdiest traditions: letting Boomer & Sooner tow the Schooner out onto the field before football games.
Barring any potential scheduling delays brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Sooners are still set to return to battle Saturday, Sept. 5, eyeing a 2020 season-opening matchup against the Missouri State Bears at home in Norman.
