    Lessons from OSU

    I had a great time this weekend in Stillwater with fellow Storm Chasers! While there it became pretty apparent that there are some lessons we can learn from OSU.

    While we don't have a monster benefactor like T Boone, the most important thing they learned is that once they dropped the money on the stadium the money came rolling in! The alumni finally had something they could be proud of! And once they had that season ticket sales and suite sales skyrocketed! Their suites are beautiful.

    The comments repeated over and over is that it was like somebody flipped a switch on the program. The stadium got renovated and recruits couldn't wait to join the program "and we got better". "Our student enrollment got better, alumni donations got better, and our teams got better."

    I do think they need to cut whatever that stupid song is that they sing after a score. They all stop cheering to sing, and when they're done singing they don't go back to cheering. It sucks the energy from their score! If we ever start scoring we need to make sure there are no stupid songs!

    It's fun to see good people succeed. They're no Cyclones, but they're damn close.


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Most of the OSU fans I have meet have been pretty nice, a couple were still a little sore about last year, but we did ruin their perfect season, so I can get that. They were out for revenge on Saturday and the Clones sure didn't put up a very good fight.

    I was only able to hear the radio broadcast but the noise from those "Cow Pokes Sticks" the students beat with was very annoying. It wasn't as bad when I saw the TV broadcast but on radio you could hear it all too well.

    What was the deal on the final kneel down that OSU did? They all dove at our guys legs, looked cheap but I'm not sure what happened.

    I noticed that too. Their entire OL basically cut blocked our DL.
