The biggest game of your school’s season. Your arch rival that you love to hate and you can be there and watch your team win. An opportunity for your team to make significant noise in the landscape of college football. A great opportunity to win the Big Twelve Conference football championship. What more would a football fanatic want?
Oklahoma State University gave back (to Oklahoma) one thousand tickets allotted them to sell to Poke Nation for them to see their Cowboys play the Sooners in Norman this December. The OSU athletic department was not able to sell those ducats to their supporters. Embarrassing in the least, this non-support by this fan base is not only surprising but an indicator that all is not well in Stillwater and it’s football venture.
Possible reasons for the lack of support:
Cowboy fans do not want to be in the stadium to see their Pokes to get blown out
Cowboy fans do not want to pay the $115 ticket price (for various reasons)
Cowboy fans can not stand to sit in the stadium in Norman with Sooner fans
Cowboy fans have a lack of interest (the base is weak)
You tell me……..this is really bad
As a Bedlam man in having my sons attend both OU and OSU, this lack of a supporting fan base is puzzling. I will be there to watch the game live, with my OSU son sitting next to me. As I would not miss the game, a red card for OSU’s supporters for this stink. You want to be considered a big time program playing for conference and national honors? Not right now Poke fans. And I wonder what Head Coach Mike Gundy thinks of his fans. LSU, Texas, etc……You know what I mean sports fans.
