"I'd like to say 'thank you' to my family for being here and all of my friends," were Landrigan's final words, according to Marson. He concluded with "Boomer Sooner," a cheer often used by University of Oklahoma fans.

Boomer Sooner as your last words? That's a little strange, to say the least. It shows how deep college football runs in this country. I'm not sure that you get the same fanaticism in the NFL as you do in college. People feel more personally connected to the school and the team than they do in the pros.

Anyway, strange last words to say the least.
