Sims Weighs In On National Anthem Controversy

Sooner great and former Heisman Trophy winner Billy Sims weighed in on the controversy surrounding OU fans ending the national anthem with "Sooners", instead of "brave."

From The Oklahoman..
Sims said he doesn't mind OU fans yelling "Sooners" at the end of the national anthem. "To me, what's the big deal?" he said. "You know, 'home of the Sooners,' that's the state of Oklahoma. That's the way I look at it."

Sims said there will always be people who disagree with the fans' practice.

"It is what it is, so we'll see what happens (Saturday)," he said.
