    Wow, that was a great game.

    But hey, please don't storm the field before the game is over.

    Also, please don't storm the field a second time before the game is over.

    Thanks,
    NCAA fans every where.

    PS Crabtree is a beast.

    I'm surprised they didn't clear the field. People were piled up all the way to the endzone. The officials should have emptied the stadium, then proceeded with the final second.

    Besides, doesn't rushing the field lose it's excitement when it's done a second & third time?

    The biggest game in the history of their school...let them enjoy it! Why would they act like they have been there before when they haven't? Wouldn't they have done it at one point before if they had done it before? After a game like that going down to the final second with a score like that vs. a team like on PrimeTime with a school and town that never gets any love? I wouldn't mind if they did it after every touchdown like the Dawgs team celebration last year vs. Florida. Jeezzz....heaven forbid fans, students, and Alumni in Lubbock get to celebrate anything. Please in an orderly fashion file out of the stadium in a single file line....This is what makes college football different from most other sports the energy and the excitement thats to be had under the lights....

    Off my soap box...:kingkong:

    LOL.

    Rushing the field before the game is even over?

    Nevermind acting like they have been there before (since they haven't), can they just please at least act like they have a brain?

    I'm all for rushing the field.....AFTER the game.

    Come on folks, give 'em a break. It was 1 sec left, the game was essentially over & after watching that play in real time, i too initially thought time had run out after it seemingly took him forever to break that tackle & tip-toe down the sideline.

    If the game were in Austin & the shoe was on the other foot, i'm confident in assuming that some UT fans would've done the same thing .........................maybe they wouldn't have done it again after the extra point, but surely after the TD.

    When I stormed the field in the Shoe in 2002 after beating Michigan, I waited until time was out :)

    Good for you, but you can never account for the drunken retards & what they might do...

    Honestly, I doubt UT fans would even rush the field in that situation.

    I know it gets on other fans' nerves, but we can be a cocky group. We expect to beat Tech every year & even in a game as close and entertaining as that one, I don't think you would see UT fans rushing the field.

    I could be wrong though...

    Dear Tech fans,

    I was wrong about your team.

    I felt like Texas was still the best team in the Big XII even after ya'll beat us.

    We are the second best team.

    Your offense is unstopable and your defense is the most underrated unit in the conference.

    Hope you beat the snot out of OU and clear the way for us to make the Fiesta Bowl.

    Good luck.

    Wait - don't we want OU to win that game so Texas can pass Tech in the BCS?

    Yes.

    But cheering for OU is very hard to do.

    Well yeah but if it means our ONLY shot at a national title? It must be done.

    Plus - it's not like they're playing a team we like. Won't be hard to root against Tech and their poor, poor Lubbock-imprisoned fans.

    If Oklahoma beats Texas Tech, it's possible that OU jumps ahead of Texas in the BCS standings. At that point, it's the BCS standings that decide who goes to the Big 12 Championship game and it could be Oklahoma. And if they win that game, they could go to the National Championship game as well.

    Right, but we have NO shot to make the title game if Tech beats OU in that game and wins out, even if UT wins out - right?

    thanks for this post. as i've said elsewhere, the big 12 south is pure nasty and tech is the only team that has survived to 10-0. whatever your reservations about tech and their history (i'm first to admit my doubts), and how unlikely it is that they'll continue their gauntlet to beat OK, tech's earned respect as a complete team and has worked their way to the top tier as a team and not a gimmick.

    As long as Texas wins out, OU will not be able to pass them in the BCS.

    If TCU had not lost, then maybe.

    But every time OU wins, Texas gets a boost in the computers. The human voters would probably have to drop Texas in the polls for it to happen. I don't think they will get a chance to.

    Thank you. I have the feeling we are going to need all the luck we can get in Norman.

    I'm sorry, have you ever been to a game in Columbus?

    What's the difference between a Buckeye fan and a Texas fan?

    At least the Buckeye fan is only rude when he's drunk (which is Thursday PM through Sunday afternoon, weekly) (runs and hides).
