    Students: If we win.....

    ....please don't rush the field. I was thinking about this today, and if we were to pull the upset, I could see the student section rushing the field. Winning this game would be nice, but its not like Iowa is ranked, and by rushing we would give them plenty of fuel for thier "super bowl" argument. Even if we were 2-0, I don't think rushing the field this year is appropriate. Before you all hate on me, I DO agree that rushing the field 2 years ago was appropriate (Iowa was ranked 8th).

    I think we need rules for rushing the field:
    -Beat a top 10 team when you are unranked
    -Winning/clinching a conference title
    Feel free to add more.

    I would add another rule.

    -Beating a RIVAL (especially one that is "better" than you)

    If we win, you can bet we will rush the field because no one is expecting us to win. We need to show our team that we are excited about winning games.... IMO it's one way to help celebrate with the players.

    Re: Students: If we win.....

    I can guarantee that when we win, the field will get flooded by students. Why? Because the students that will want to rush will vastly outnumber the students that wouldn't. I see no reason to rush the field, but if I have a wall of 3,000 people behind me shoving me forward, I can either get trampled or jump to the field.

    Agreed. From where I stand (literally), if people are rushing, it's either go or die. They're not going to stop. And there are going to be enough people who are intoximicated who want to rush if we win.

    Re: Students: If we win.....

    Rushing is OK. What bugs me is the people who get into the "OVERRATED" chant.
    Um, don't you realize that you're knocking you're on team?

    While I'm not a big fan of it, I do enjoy seeing things like this...

    As long as it is not like the fans who rush the field before the game is over and have to run back to the stands, multiple times. Like the Clemson faithful.

    True.

    There isn't even a counter-argument to this.
