    Cox's punt return is pretty sweet. looks like a block in the back on their #9 to me, though.

    we rush for less than 20 yards. terrible.

    OSU has the #12 team in the country and a lot of empty seats....

    Empty seats seems to be their bane. There was a lot of talk before the fall about how they approached selling season tickets, packages, etc. They sell very few individual game tickets. If I remember right, there were fans from other teams (Ga, Tx, etc) who were expected to buy the season tix just to see that particular game.

    I was screeming for a block in the back call all night... They seemed to not want to call that penalty on them.

    On the radio they said that since there was no major metro-plex, the fans had to come in from rural areas. The Thursday night game was really tough in the regard, and that OSU was going to avoid such games in the future. OSU only expected 40k out of the 60k seats to be filled.

    see, i don't know about that. i have an uncle who lives in Edmond, OK. north suburb of OKC. and he's a Poke and donor and goes to the hoops games....and he says he can get to Gallagher-IBA in 40 minutes from driveway to parking garage in Stillwater. that's not much diff than south Denver to Boulder. Tulsa is less than 50 minutes away.

    They had about 5 clips that I saw during the special teams play in the game that were obvious. They didnt call them when they were flat obvious. It wasnt like they werent at the point of attack cause most of them were. Did we have Nebraska fans as refs or what?

    Long before that one went back I was looking for that flag. When it did go into the end zone, I thought 'no big deal, it's gotta come back'.

    That illegal block/hold prevented the tackle.

    Otherwise, I didn't have a lot of complaints with the officiating.

    There was no doubt on those clips, yet I didnt see one flag. its like my coach used to say, "dont hit unless u see the front." Tap that ass but make sure its from the front. ok state clipped all night and it was obvious. Other words its was a joke and dont give me crap about officials being honorable.

    OSU doesn't want opposing teams fans (mainly happens on years when OU is on the home schedule) coming in and buying up all the seats, so they don't like to sell individual game tickets. Many times they have REQUIRED purchase of the
    entire season package just to get tickets to a
    game.

    Last night they announced that more than 50,000 tickets had been sold, but attendance
    was in the 40,000 range. That has ALWAYS been a problem at OSU.
