Lots of fights over school loyalty and all. I still have my "Beat Texas" shirt that I use to wear
    Dont forget that 1/2 of the stadium is Texas fans and the other 1/2 is OU fans.
    As if all that wasnt enough they went and added another 15,000 seats to completely ring the upper deck bringing the total to 92,000.

    If you ever go to the Cotton Bowl, you have to ride the Texas Star.

    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    While the Academys were chosen as best game day experience.....The Army v Navy game experience is unquestionably the best.

    I've been going to that game since 1973, and I can tell you the atmosphere is ELECTRIC!

    For the vast majority of fans its a weekend event. For college kids, its one huge party. Here's one story thats pretty funny with a wrestling angle.

    Back in the early 80s I and some buddies were in Dallas for the game at a place called Up Your Alley, which was a college bar catering to the SMU crowd. But on this Friday night before the game it was full of Sooners and Longhorns. This was truly one of the rowdiest bars I have been in and they did all they could to get the customers to drink as much as possible. In addition to a loud band, there was for lack of a better term an "Instigator In Charge" who had a microphone and basically baited the crowd by going table to table and egging them on by challenging their manhjood or whatever to get the them going.

    About half way through the evening, this Instigator In Charge announces "I WANT THE BIGGEST AND BADDEST SOONER AND I WANT THE BIGGEST AND BADDEST LONGHORN RIGHT UP HERE ON THIS STAGE". Nobody knew what was up or why, and the crowd kinda hushed as people looked around to see who would go up. There was a lot of people challenging each other and what not, until after a few minutes some guy in burnt orange walked up to the stage. He was about 6'4" and 220# and the Texas crowd went ape s**t! They knew whatever contest was about to occur, THEY had the sure winner. Then, from the back, up runs lil Andre Metzger, all of about 5'7" and 155# give or take a biscuit or two... or 10.... and the OU crowd, especially yours truly, goes ape s**t! (For those that dont know or dont remember Metzger was a 2x NCAA champ @ 142 for Oklahoma in the early 80s).

    The contrast couldnt have been more striking. Here was Big Tex, huge and imposing in starched Wranglers and pointy cowboy boots lookin' like a walkin'-talkin' Marlboro Man smiling confidently as he towered over lil mop-haired Andre, at whom the Texans were all laughing derisively. Sadly, I doubt many on the OU side had any idea of who they sent up and secretly wondered why he was up there and they no doubt wondered if he was going to get us all humiliated. The Instigator In Charge looked at lil Andre, then Big Tex, then back at Metz and just shook his head as if to say, "this isnt even fair".

    Then the Instigator called up one of the waitresses to the stage. She was carrying a tray with two tall ice tea glasses of what we werent sure yet. The crowd got VERY quiet. He hands a glass to each guy and announces "OK boys, its up to you now. I want to see which of you is MAN enough to DOWN these glasses of.... tequila!" Big Tex looks at the glass like its full of tequila and Metz looks at it likes its water after a weigh in.

    The crowd CHEERS! Then they start chanting OU, OU, OU, and TEXAS, TEXAS, TEXAS! Then when the Instagator yells "Drink up" they hoist the glasses!

    Big Tex got about 2 gulps down and then just shook his head in SHAME!

    Metzger, God Bless that boy, CHUGGED that whole damned glass, wiped his mouth and shoved his index finger into the sky! WE'RE NUMBER 1! We SOONERS went WILD! It was like watching a 99 yard interception return for a touchdown to win the game! It was pandemonium!




    .....Post script... A few days later I saw one of Andre's buddies on campus and asked how he fared after that glorious triumph. Poor Andre it seems, and luckily for him no doubt, re-tasted that vile tequila and was so hungover he missed the game and was still hurting even on SUNDAY!

    oh, i know it man. I've been to the game since 2000. Yeah, not as long as you.
    But I've only been alive since 1993
    The atmosphere is incredible and I always love walking around with my OU shirt and face paint
    while my dad has his Texas gear on and seein the different reactions from people.
    It's truly unexplainable the experience you go through at the game as a fan of one or the other.
    If you're a Texas Tech fan, you better forget about going to Red River
