    Okie State pregame intro question

    I wasn't at the game last week... were Okie State fans advised to take cover before the game? In light of the recent plane crash, I assume the Athletic Dept. used some discretion and amended the usual pregame intro, but you never know.

    No, it was the normal intro. Weather wasnt even a factor in the crash, so i dont know why a storm warning should be 'amended' for them.

    Yeah maybe if those coaches were killed by a tornado it would be advisable to alter the intro, but I don't see any reason to for a plane crash.

    I can see the OP's point, but I don't believe it was a real problem. It was part of the 'moving on like normal' thing that the football game was supposed to provide.

    They watched it in stride. The moment of silensce tribute was just before that. All done in good taste. Their band was trying to play them into victory at the end of the fourth quarter but it did not work. They had more O-Sue fans than some of the other Big 12 teams did this year. They were just upset that their team flamed out when Knott tipped the pass to Superman.

    You're totally right... a message clearly stating Okie State fans should take cover because of IMPENDING DANGER is not a big deal. What was I thinking?

    Re: Okie State pregame intro question

    I see your point, but what good will it do to complain about it now?

    I imagine that we would have heard an apology come from the AD if OSU fans had complained.

    your reading too much into it, I guarantee the OSU fans thought nothing of it.
