Sorry if this has been posted before, but I got it in an email today. Kind of funny, but probably written by an OU fanatic...
The Big 12 compared to the Middle East
TEXAS: Iran. Somewhat of a controlling power in the region but it will all come crashing down because they have a highly functioning " Coach February " as a leader.
KANSAS: Kuwait. Tons of riches and unrealized potential, but still vulnerable to Iran.
NEBRASKA: Iraq. A wealth of history but the country as a whole is going in the tank and they will internally take themselves out before it's all over.
OKLAHOMA: Saudi Arabia. A prOUd kingdom, once torn up by fighting but known for historic past and prosperOUs future, surrounded by Iran and Iraq, with fanatics in Al-Qaeda (see below) who'll stop at nothing to bring them down.
MISSOURI: Syria. Evil schmers who will stoop to whatever level they need to win. No real history to speak of but thinks they are the cradle of civilization.
OKLAHOMA STATE: Al Qaeda. No real country, just a movement of disgruntled fanatics who live to smear the hope of those more fortunate. No other goal in life than to bring down the House of Saudi Arabia. A thorn in the side to that country in the late 90's and early 2000 years is the crowning achievement in their history. Signing day was a major setback to the movement. They are fanatically loyal to their new leader.
KANSAS STATE: Palestinian territories. No one really cares or worries about them unless they can be of some use (i.e. winning once in a while against Iran that causes a bit of a shake up in rankings).
IOWA STATE: Qatar. Where is Qatar ? Is it in our area ?
TEXAS A&M: Afghanistan. Not much going for it other than the crazy traditions and game rituals.
BAYLOR: Israel. None of the others understand why they're in the area. Just leave them alone for Holtz's sake. What did they ever do to you.
COLORADO: Morocco. Not really part of the Middle East. Has other things to do than fuss (or play football). Rumor is you can always go there for a good time.
TEXAS TECH: Libya. Has a charismatic leader in a land of nothingness who will rattle his sword but knows he doesn't have a whole heck of a lot to back it up. Pulls the occasional surprise and cries " Victory ! "
"Don't worry Boss...they can't do nothin' 'til they're through sparklin'..."
