University of Oklahoma
Has anybody figured out yet why the University of Oklahoma goes by "OU" instead of "UO"? Just curious... Is it because it is easier to say? Is there a story behind it? Are they just crappy spellers?

I'm pretty sure it's "University of Oklahoma". Anybody else agree with "Oklahoma University"?

I know some OU grads. They swear they learned their vowels (in third grade) - "EI EI O". So that can't be it...

It must be an Oklahoma thing because the University of Tulsa goes by "TU". Go figure. I guess UT was taken by Texas and Tenn.

I have had asked several OU fans this same question. They really don't have a true answer to why. Most of them just say they have been saying that forever.

and when I lived in Colorado none of the Buff fans had an answer either. it is alot easier to say OU and CU than it is UO and UC.
