Oklahoma's football program announced some major spring game news on Tuesday. A lot of Sooners fans are not happy about it.

OU revealed on Tuesday that Trace Adkins will be performing live inside the stadium before kickoff. The Sooners had been hyping up a mystery musical act for this year's game. The reveal of Adkins didn't seem to deliver.

Here are the details, from OU:

"The University of Oklahoma Athletics Department has announced several details surrounding the April 14 spring football game, including a pregame concert inside Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium by country music star Trace Adkins.

Adkins, who has sold more than 11 million albums, won three Academy of Country Music Awards and has a long track record of supporting U.S. troops and veterans (he has served as a spokesman for the Wounded Warrior Project and participated in 12 USO tours), will start his concert set at 12:30 p.m. in the stadium's north end zone stands. The spring game is scheduled to kick off at approximately 1:15 p.m."

And here are some of the reactions from Oklahoma fans:
