    "I think it's absolutely absurd," Harmon said.

    Others, such as Ashanti Colbert, said they will buy the Oklahoma-branded plates.

    "My dad is a big Sooner fan, and that's my home state, so I have to represent," she said.

    The DMV board will vote on the plates next week. If approved, the OU plates would cost between $55 and $195.
