    I will never again complain about CU students/fans rushing the field again.

    I was probably the only person here who watched the UW/WSU game, but WSU actually rushed the field after beating a team that had not won a game all year.

    Now I realize it is the Apple Cup and you have the whole in-state 101 year rivalry thing going on, but seriously?

    Cal students also rushed the field after beating Stanford.

    Who cares? It's fun to rush the field. There's nothing wrong with it. Bluehairs passing judgment are obsolete. Just look at the election results.

    Cue Bob Dylan.

    I don't have blue hair.

    It definitely made me laugh though.

    On here or in your household? ;)

    Is UW really the only winless team in D1A?

    They probably rushed the field more as a joke seeing as these teams went into the game with 1 win combined, with that 1 win coming over Portland State.

    What channel was the game on? The masochism channel?

    I wonder if DD would´ve watched had he been home.

    Fox sports. He would have watched. It did turn out to be a good game as it went into double OT. The UW kicker is just about as bad as ours.

    Anyone notice how OU students blew away the #2 team in the country and still didn't rush the field? Those OU fans are such blue hairs.

    I honestly do not understand why the west side is so hung up on the rush-the-field issue. If the students are fired up enough to run onto the field, fine. I'm sure the students (and student-athletes) enjoy it.

    I know one of my most memorable moments at my time at cu was running around folsom like a crazed lunatic. I yelled my ass of every ****ing game and I deserved to celebrate. So did these kids - no point in bringing them down, as far as I can see.

    The west side is weak. They sit on their hands and grumble when we aren't performing up to expectations, and when we are, they are worried about the other side of the stadium because they are reacting to success.

    The act of rushing the field is in direct relationship to the expectations of the fan base.

    It looks amaturish when a player on a losing team scores a TD in trash time and does some excessive endzone celebration. It's kind of the same thing.

    If you have ever rushed the field when CU was a top 10 team, then it is a sad reminder of past glory to see fans being elated with any upset of a top ranked team by an unranked Buff squad. To put it an other way, once you've dated a 10, it's hard to get excited about going out with someone "who has a great personality."

    I think rushing the field is like an end zone celebration - it makes the fans or players look like they've never won before - makes them look desperate. Classy fans don't do it IMO - they have won before - they will win again and they don't need to prove it.

    **** that ****. Since the ****ers are the definition of 'classy' I want to be as far from that as ****ing possible. Count me in the group that sees nothing wrong with rushing the field.

    it looked like they had security around the stadium on the field to prevent it. i know at auburn and UGA they have designed the hedge around the field and implemented security so that no one can rush the field. i have never seen anybody try at either stadium. i do not believe it is because they are too classy or been there before, but rather they are afraid of being arrested.

    Exactly, and the security guards are not the reason fans don't rush the field. There's security at CU games, too. If the fans want to rush, security isn't going to stop them.

    Don't get me wrong, I think there is a time and place for rushing the field, but it's not for practically every win like we've seen the last few years in Boulder.

    all sooner sports are VERY accessible to the average fan. the need to rush a field might be tempered because of that. skids, have you seen the ou digs or wandered their tent city of tailgating? gone inside the soonerclub tailgate?

    i don't think it is class stopping hijinks - they were slapping high fives and interested in celebrating as any other fanbase. it is that they know they don't have to rush the field to be a part of it.

    just my two cents, from having gotten involved in oklahoma gameday through marriage.

    why should they have rushed the field.... it would have been a totally classless move on their part if they had..... they and the rest of the fans, along with the Sooner defense did their part when Tech had the ball on offense....

    Agreed. I could have seen them rushing the field if they had won on a last second td or fg, but not a blow out.

    Good post. Rushing the field excessively is pathetic. The win vs. WVU??? Maybe if they were undefeated and still ranked in the top 8, but they had just lost to East Carolina.

    It's good to see the student section fired up (when they decide to show up), but don't mistake restraint for lack of excitement. As stated above, it wasn't that long ago that we were the top 10 team people were gunning for.

    This isn't about classiness. This program hasn't secured bowl eligibility and we're talking about rushing the field?:wow:

    Rushing the field at every opportunity is one step down the Primrose path of advocating public masturbation, or perhaps some extreme combination of the two.
    :devil:

    Howzabout a display a little decency mixed in with a pinch of self-control and self-respect?

    For me, decency and self-control are incompatible with self-respect.

    Social conventions are a drag, and restraint for the sake of "being cool" ultimately leads (to the surprise of many) to mini-van ownership.

    The thing about rushing the field is that the "rush" is so short-lived.

    You rush the field.. then

    ..there you are, on the field.

    You can high five and hug just as many people in the stands as you can on the field out there, and you stand a better chance of knowing who they are in the stands.
