‘Bedlam, Followed by Class’

Bedlam is the most heated game in Oklahoma. Two teams that hate each other face off, playing for yearly bragging rights and the pride that goes with them.

After hours of hitting OSU players in this year’s Bedlam game, Chris Messner (right) showed us the perfect example of a good sport.

This is an excerpt from an article by John Rohde in today’s Oklahoman:

A few minutes after the game, [OSU receiver D’Juan] Woods was alone at the 27-yard line on the west side, down on both knees, face buried in his hands. OU senior offensive tackle Chris Messner, who went unbeaten in Bedlam, boldly
walked over to Woods and helped him to his feet.Messner had made it a point to visit the Cowboys sideline afterward to offer a handshake to anyone willing to accept. Messner was there to offer a gesture, not to gloat. Plenty of other Sooners did the same. Bedlam, followed by class. A nice touch.
