Brian Bosworth College
VICE Sports: What does it mean for you, getting inducted into the Hall of Fame?
Brian Bosworth: It’s been a long time coming. During the years that it didn’t come, it was frustrating. I had kind of anxiety and anger and frustration over [the question] Why can’t I get in? Why can’t I get in? I didn’t take the time to understand where I was. The award itself is more than just honoring your accomplishments on the field; I think it is also a true testament of your character, what you do and who you are off the field.
Were you told why the induction didn’t come earlier?
Brian Bosworth: There were a lot of great players that went in that deserved to get in there before. At the end of the day, it’s really God’s will. I went in when I was supposed to go in. I don’t question the timing of it. I just appreciate that I got a chance to get in during the time when [former Oklahoma coach Barry Switzer] was still alive, so I could share that and give him the honor.
Is it better for you to watch games alone or with some friends at home than at the stadium?
Brian Bosworth: Yeah. I can yell and scream. When I’m going to the games up in Norman, I have a partner who has a suite, a box, so that I can watch it up in the suite. Every now and then, I’ll go down and watch the game on the football field and hang out with the guys. That adrenaline rush starts to happen again. You just get so into the game.
When you were suspended for the 1987 Orange Bowl and wore the T-shirt referring to the NCAA as National Communists Against Athletes, is that something you look back on and are proud that you took a stand against the NCAA?
Brian Bosworth: It wasn’t so much that. I just was a young kid. I made a poor decision and did it in the wrong time in the wrong format. Back in those days, it was just all about me. I didn’t think the thing through. That was probably one of the biggest regrets, because I hurt my team, I hurt my coach, I hurt our university by taking a moment that is really about sharing the success of who we are and what we’re doing and representing them in the way that they should have been represented.
Are you happy you played football?
Brian Bosworth: Oh, yeah. No question. It was the gift that God gave me. I got to do something that I truly loved and I got to do it at a place that I truly wanted to be at. I had great
Are you still acting?
Brian Bosworth: When a role comes up that I feel is a good role. I don’t have to do those, which is great. I can now choose things that I want to do. I have a great relationship with my wife. My son is a junior in high school, so I’m fighting through those years that you have to go through with your son to make sure that he has all he needs, all the tools that he’s going to need to get to that next level.
