I saw 7 point favorites, but it was still a big win for us to stay relevant. Not to mention a much needed win over a top 10 opponent who had plenty of help from the refs so all that frustration was released with some excessive celebration. They already threw the flag, that shouldn't have been thrown for excessively celebration, so might as well excessively celebrate and earn it by storming the field.Were we 5.5 point favorites?
And to be honest not sure how many people really pay attention to the point spread. So beating a top 10 team was and still is a big deal, no matter what Vegas says.Not the best look given we were favored, but oh well. I know the times that I've rushed the field, it was a cool experience and something that I'll always remember. I have no problem with people wanting to experience that for themselves.
I think the rope is to help the other team have a clear path to the locker rooms. Then once they are past they open things up. In theory I think that was one of the protocols that was supposedly put into place to get the opposing teams out of harms way.I was laughing at the security people holding the rope. I’m like, “yeah, that’s really gonna stop them!”
Yeah but did they start a thread about rushing the field being stupid? If so, they might have had it coming. I'm kidding of course violence is never the answer, but a band that tries to push their way through a bunch of opposing fans mostly drunk are probably going to get some things said to them. Granted violence shouldn't be a line that is crossed.Another fun fact the Iowa marching band actually also got roundhouse kicked in the face by a fan during this field rush.
