Comments: Bou's Recap: Gators vs. Razorbacks

There is nothing like a good (read:close)college game. The NFL has nothing on them.

My first college FB game was at the Orange Bowl between UM and FSU....it was the famous "wide right" game in 1991 and I thought the stadium was going to fall apart around our ears. They let 10,000 more people into the stadium than had tickets it seemed. CRAZY, FABULOUS first game to see!

And you experienced the 12th player phenomenom yesterday. The fans can be that player. Glad you had so much fun. ;)

There are some games that are just so much fun to be at. Wide right and wide left would have been two of those games in the early 90s! Also, the infamous Hail Mary pass with Doug Flutie with Boston College against Miami... I was watching that on TV and I so would have loved to have been in those stands!

And... we got a txt this morning from a client/friend of my husband's saying, "Were you all at the game?" Evidently we were all over TV when Tebow and made this great drive and was all pumped up... right before another fumble.

And I know the key now... to be on TV, you want to be in the endzones. We were 4th row in the N endzone. The sides of the stadiums are filled with both teams, the staff, cheerleaders, etc. The endzones are free of anything. So the endzone people were constantly on the Jumbotron and evidently my family was on TV.

Classic sign held by a very beautiful young Gator Fan: "I'll dump my boyfriend for Tim Tebow". I hope it made the television. It was classic.

Indeed, the Texas Aggies had it figured out years ago: the 12th man.

The intensity is something for sure! I have never been to an OU game with my hubby - can't even imagine. More ramped up that he is at home?? He'll have a stroke for sure...

And OU lost to TX saturday - not a good day at my house... :(

Two HUGE blown calls towards the end of the game. I had my jaw dropped along with the commentators.

Yeah, I heard about those two bad calls later. Being in the stands, we couldn't hear the commentators.

I was doing some reading since and I don't think the bad calls cost them the game. They still had TONS of mistakes. But the bad calls didn't help.

That game should have ended a tie game. They both sucked.

At one point, our offense was finally jamming, but the defense fell apart. I said to the guy next to me, "I guess we're not allowed to have both this game are we?"
