    Texas fans

    This was my first time at DKR Memorial stadium and even if we had lost I wouldn't had fun. Their fans were so nice to us during the game and when we left so many fans said "thank you for coming" and "great win'". They really do have classy fans.

    Re: Texas fans

    But I want to think of Texas fans as greedy money grubbers only interested in ruining the Big XII :(


    For "I", for "S", forever!
    For Iowa State all the way.
    Let's go! To show them what the gang's all here for,
    Go! To show them how the Cyclones cheer.
    For "I", for "S", forever!
    For Iowa State do it right!
    It's time to climb up on the vict'ry wagon,
    Fight! Iowa State, Fight! Fight!

    Re: Texas fans

    Yeah, I've had good experiences with Texas fans.

    Kinda takes some of the edge off beating them today.

    So... we won and you still didn't have fun there? Why is this post an homage to how classy their fans are? I'm so confused!

    Re: Texas fans

    I think Flag Guy and Superfan's last visit to Austin says everything you need to know about Texas fans at the stadium -- nothing but class all the way around.


    Go Sssssssssyclones!

    Re: Texas fans

    Agree with the OP. Their fans were excellent. The guys sitting next to us shook our hands when they left and congratulated us. Everyone on the street would yell hook em horns and then stop and say thanks for coming to Austin. Random cars would stop on the road as we walked back to hotel and said congrats.

    But yes, both Texas and A&M fans are classy folks. We hit 6th St. last night and had lots of people welcoming us to Austin and thanking us for coming. I heard ONE "Iowa State sucks!" last night. One negative comment in 2 trips. Today after the win it was all people congratulating us and commenting on how well the team played.

    Almost home. Now I can, as someone commented as the clock hit zero, "sacrifice my liver to the football gods."

    Re: Texas fans

    Texas fans are good folks. Very classy all around (like A&M). Only jerk was some guy that said "enjoy it now because it's never happening again" as we were going ape **** in DKR.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    We went ape**** and finished singing the Fight Song after the first TD and some guy told us (half jokingly) "It was a courtesy touchdown".

    I sit in an office with 6 UT alums. I am going to have the biggest grin on my face Monday morning. Might have to get that ticket stub framed.

    One experience today : Drunk college aged Texas fan went off on a bad call saying Iowa State paid the refs off. Rest of the UT fans and us had a good laugh at that.
