    I think he could get his point across in a 1:30 clip rather than saying the same thing over and over for almost 8 minutes.

    I didn't really think we should have rushed the field after the 2009 Colorado game. We played sloppy at the end and were favorites coming into the game.

    If students want to rush the field more power to them. Its not like the old adage really applies to us, "Act like you have been there " cause we really havent. So when we get a big win at home tear it up students.

    After beating a significantly higher ranked opponent, or after clinching some sort of championship....otherwise, stay in the stands.

    I will, however, celebrate after every single Cyclone victory, regardless of opponent or significance. I'll just do it outside of the stadium/at home.

    Re: What is your philosophy on rushing the court/field after a win?

    Rushing the court is a good time and memory for the fans and the players. Its a good thing after a big win.

    So often people are scared to have fun and cut loose anymore. The players like it, the fans like it, its fun and a great scene after a big win.

    I can remember drunkenly rushing the field at Jack Trice a couple times and down at Phoenix at the 1st Insight Bowl win. Good time for all (except a dude I knew from class who broke his wrist falling.

    Re: What is your philosophy on rushing the court/field after a win?

    I refused to rush the field after the 09 Colorado game. Winning a game we were supposed to win and just because it made us bowl eligible didn't qualify it for me.

    Beating top ranked teams and important games like Mac's last game as well as beating Iowa, clinching conference championships are things that might qualify it for me.

    I'm still depressed that after 4 years I haven't had a good reason to rush Hilton's court. ..

    Re: What is your philosophy on rushing the court/field after a win?

    I rushed Jack Trice Field twice. So here is my philosophy/advice:

    1992 Upset of Nebraska Football

    If you are drunk and try to run and jump for the goal post, don't miss it and fall down when there is a herd of drunk people stampeding behind you.

    1993 Upset of Kansas State Football

    If you are rushing toward the north goal post and there is a dozen cops around the goal post, don't out run the crowd of stampeding students. The cops will tackle and pile on top of you and you will get arrested. The stampeding fans will see this and go after the south goal post. I don't know who the kid was that cops tackled and piled on top of, but it was hilarious
    Nebraska Is Whirled by a Cyclone

    AMES, Iowa, Nov. 14 Iowa State today stunned Nebraska, the No. 1 team in The New York Times's computer ranking, by beating the Cornhuskers at their own game. The Cyclones controlled the line of scrimmage and ran, ran, ran for a 19-10 upset.

    Led by quarterback Marv Seiler, Iowa State posted some Nebraska-like rushing statistics for its first victory over the Cornhuskers since 1977.
    Nebraska (7-2, 4-1) led the nation in rushing (351.1 yards a game) and scoring (43.3) and was coming off routs of 52-7 over Colorado and 49-7 over Kansas, both nationally ranked.
    Ranked No. 7 in the Associated Press poll, the Cornhuskers were being compared to some of the past great Nebraska teams.
    "You're never any better than your last game," Nebraska Coach Tom Osborne said. "People were starting to say a lot of nice things about us, but we could fix that in a week's time and I'm afraid we have.
    "I think the big difference was that they played with a lot of emotion and it looked like our tank was a little bit dry today. We played two emotional games in a row against Colorado and Kansas. We talked a lot about it this week, about the dangers of the situation, and I don't know really how much sunk in."
    Seiler, a fifth-year senior making his first start, ran 24 times for 144 yards as the Cyclones (4-6 over all, 2-4 Big Eight) rushed for 373 yards. Seiler's big day included a 78-yard run that set up Iowa State's only touchdown.


    Iowa St. 27, Kansas St. 23
    Freshman quarterback Todd Doxzon directed three fourth-quarter scoring drives that rallied Iowa State to an upset of Kansas State, No. 15 with The Times and No. 18 with The A.P. Kansas State (6-2-1, 2-2-1) was coming off its first victory over Oklahoma in 23 years and appeared to be in control against Iowa State after taking a 17-6 lead on Chad May's 2-yard touchdown run with 4:14 left in the third quarter.

    Re: What is your philosophy on rushing the court/field after a win?

    My philosophy is: If you feel compelled to rush the field and enough other people feel the same way...it should be done. There is a reason you feel that way, be it big win, love for the team, exciting ending, or just because you are alive and damn glad to be there for the win and others are too. I say, there is never too much rushing the field, and there are worse things to be known for than the school whose fans rush the field too much.

    I could care less about it one way or another.

    i like to do it, the players seem to like it when we do it, and it's nice to be able to celebrate with them. i don't know them personally, but it feels good to be able to give high fives and congratulations to complete strangers.

    Specious - what this guy's point is.

    His opinion infers that with success comes a responsibility, no, an obligation to be "above it all" and eschew displays of unbridled joy. As Sherman Potter would say, Cow Cookies! What he advocates is snobbish, and snobs don't look good in any setting. If I experience that euphoria that loyal fans sometimes do when their team succeeds - before I express it with thousands of my fellow fans, I need to consider whether I have some BS responsibility to "act like I have been there before"? HORSEFEATHERS! Analyze this!

    If fans want to celebrate a win by rushing the field\court, then great, more power to them. Especially in football, *every* win is a big win, when you only have 12 regular season games. Hell, if a school wanted to do this after *every* game, i cant say id have anything against them for it. Its a game, have some fun.

    I just saw a headline that some team (forget who it was) was fined by either their conference or the NCAA for allowing fans on the court after a big upset. Someone else probably has real details and not my rambling about a headline I saw scroll past while not paying attention.
