With 13:43 left to go in the game and after the Texas Tech Red Raiders cashed in a touchdown to go up 34-6 when "House of Pain" song "Jump Around" hit the loudspeakers.

OU fans may remember the song from last year's 65-21 victory over Texas Tech in Norman. It was the song that the continuously blazed throughout the stadium as the Sooners shellacked Tech to cement a birth in the Big 12 Championship Game.

It was by far one of the most spirited performances by the OU fans in the Bob Stoops era and he would even go as far as awarding the game ball to the OU fans after the contest ended.

But even Tech coach Mike Leach thought that his team's celebration was at the very least ill timed.

"Maybe at the end (of the game)," Leach said when asked if he felt like jumping around like everyone else.

So what did the Stoops think about the entire Texas Tech team, and even the coaching staff, celebrating their victory on Saturday, well before the game ended?

"It doesn't matter," Stoops stated.

For right now the Sooners will be more worried about taking care of Oklahoma State next weekend and sending their seniors out with a victory.

But come 11-12-2010 it may matter a lot....
