Billy Sims was a Sooner that should have been a Longhorn, he grew up in Texas for Pete’s sake.

While playing for Barry Switzer’s Oklahoma squad, Sims set the school’s total yardage record in 1978, which wasn’t broken until another Longhorn nemesis Adrian Peterson set it in 2004.

A two-time First-Team All-Big Eight and two-time unanimous All-American, Sims was a pest for the Texas Longhorns.

Sims has since been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame and was undeniably a phenomenal player for the Sooners (and in the NFL).

He’s easy to hate cause he was hard to beat. Over five years at Oklahoma, Sims amassed 3,820 rushing yards for an astonishing 48 touchdowns, much to the chagrin of Texas fans everywhere.
