    I am not a litigation type of person, but wrongs need to be corrected and damaged individuals made whole. The people forced to leave the game for attempting to report the incident are very important. Further action from them may be very helpful in assuring an incident like this doesn't happen again soon.

    I think Cy does deserve compensation for the medical costs and pain inflicted. However, this is an individual's choice.

    A way to keep this in the public, and perhaps gain UCONN acknowledgement, is for the individuals "escorted" out of the stadium to sue for damages. They were only doing what I see as civil duty. For that they lost the value of their ticket, expenses to get to the game, and any "enjoyment" they get from attending sporting events. I think that UCONN, their rent-a-cops, and any individuals known to be responsible could be sued.

    i hope cy gets well, uconn publicly apologizes for kicking out fans reporting the incident, letting the fan responsible stay, and providing a generally unsafe environment along with some fines to the university as well would probably be enough maybe. I lived in Connecticut and those people are jerks, just how they are being an excuse for humans.

    long live the big 12 and go state

    One of my staffers and his fiancé flew out to the game. The fiancé saw Cy get pushed and fall down what they estimated to be about a 4' drop. He turned and saw Cy under the steps clutching his arm. Security came over and he thinks they wrote some kind of ticket to the offending 'fan' (I'm using that term loosely here) and he was allowed to stay in the game. From his standpoint security appeared to be less than excited or desiring to really do anything. Afterwards, UCONN fans mocked Cyclone fans over the mascot situation.

    On the way out of the game the people I know were verbally assaulted about classy things like threatened rape. He gave other examples of unacceptable behavior at the game too.

    Forgive me for not knowing this, but do we have UCONN on future schedules? If so, this needs to change!

    No ****! Classless fans if you ask me. Making fun of us after that game too? The only thing that was for funny for UCONN last night is that they lost to us when we had 3 TO's and only 3 yards in the 1st quarter. What a bunch of idiots.

    Not currently, but who knows, might be playing them every year pretty soon. At least we have a good start for a rivalry game.

    I would disagree with this. I have a bunch of teacher friends out there that are season ticket holders. Great people. As a matter of fact they enjoyed tailgating with us so much when we went there they now fly to Iowa once a year to tailgate for a football game WEARING ISU gear! They were here for the Iowa game this year and sat on the hillside.

    I hope you recover quickly.

    Some good orthopedic surgeons in Omaha. (Dr. Miller is who fixed my mom up after a broken arm.)

    Hopefully you have a speedy recovery! Also hopefully the person/people who pushed you get sued and some jail time.

    Are we sure it wasn't a crazed Old Dominion fan still upset about the REAL results from the cap one mascot challenge?

    But in all seriousness, our thoughts are with you man, hope all goes well! Cyclone Nation is behind you

    I'm not a lawyer, nor have I ever played one on TV. I know very little about the law, but take my expert legal advice.

    Sue. His. ***.



    Thoughts and prayers to you on a speedy recovery!
