They sent samples to Tulane, Texas and Oklahoma to be analized in the Geology Departments. It seems one of the Houston Space lab people graduated from UT Austin, and as a joke, slipped a Cow Pie in the Box going to Oklahoma.
They never heard anything back from Oklahoma about it...but about a year later, at the International Space Confrence in Houston, the Oklahoma delagation presented evidence that the Cow really did jump over the Moon!
I graduated college in OKC...Never went to a school that had a decent football team...SHSU, SWOSU, and SNU...are my alma-maters (sp?)...I want to root for OU because of all the Ol' school days...but for college teams...most the time... I don't follow...except...I ain't no Longhorn fan...for sure!
