Oh, and Texas has a couple as well...

Dear Buckeye fans,

We gave you shit (and rightfully so) due to your treatment of Texas fans when they came to Columbus last year. But while we heard Buckeyes were treated very well in Austin last month, just as I pointed out in the post above that Michigan has its share of less-than-classy fans, so too do the Longhorns as evidenced by the video below.




Yes, it's just a "prank," but this is how things get out of hand. Most of all, it's not how fans should treat visitors to their town and stadium. Period.

I can assure you, that is 1% of the population. Bad form.

Unless it was ou. Then we'd get into drunken fights about actually winning.

Honestly, I fucking hate those inflatable Brutus Buckeye's. I would of done the same thing to my own.

I'm with Brickeye.

Nobody was hurt, and 7 foot inflated nuts are in poor taste.

so tackling an inflatable dummy mascot = throwing beer bottles at people and burning couches. yes I see this logic.

And the guy who posted the vid is 46 years old... 46... real mature. I bet he shot the vid too.

Dude those guys are so fucking cool...Rah Rah Texas....They tackled a stationary gay Ohio state mascot.

Maybe Mack Brown should recruit those guys....they at least tackled the guy...unlike the game.

I saw the same thing happen at Happy Valley in 03, you can't stop a few asshole drunken fans, most of the fans around the tailgate with the inflatable Buckeye were apologizing, it sucks when a few make the rest look bad.

It would be even funnier if someone painted a Buckstache on one of those things. Maybe to meet Yost's requirements for said 'stache, they could hand Brutus a gun, a roll lint remover, and let him "borrow" someone's car.

I was a buckeye fan who went to Texas and had a 19 year old punk put out his cigarette on my uncles shoes. My uncle is 65 years old. I also witnessed beer bottles being chucked after the game. I dont have youtube video, but yeah its sad.

you are so full of shit. Buckeye fans have said nothing but good things about their visit to Austin.

Did he tell you how old he was before he did it?

DKR is a dry stadium, moron.

Yeah, nobody ever, EVER has beer bottles on the grounds of a dry stadium. You people are all fucking idiots if you fail to recognize that this shit happens everywhere.

"you are so full of shit. Buckeye fans have said nothing but good things about their visit to Austin."

Holy shit, you talked to all of them? Nice going! That's pretty damned amazing, in my book. I'm sure there were plenty of Buckeye fans going back to Ohio thinking "What the fuck is wrong with this state?" And, again, if you argue with that, you're a fucking idiot. Period.

I dunno whats more pathetic, the fact that this fag made up some shit about beer bottles being thrown at DKR, or that he said he "doesn't have youtube". sounds like a troll to me.


oh and btw, not only is DKR dry, but bottles aren't allowed in the parking lots where everyone tailgates

IT WASN'T AT THE STADIUM...IDIOT. it was on W. 6th the night before!!!!! and I was there for the whole weekend. There's U-Tube video of bullsh%t that went down in Texas. I am not calling it a bad experience. What I am saying is that because the "general Consensus" was that Texas Fans were overtly nice to us is a generalization. I pointed out an unfortunate situation and it was an isolated one. I will never make huge generalizations about a school. Im simply explaining what happened to me. DId it make it in the papers??? No, Did I want it to??? No. Im just saying...it happens everywhere. Texas fans were nice, but unfortunate things take place and its all alcohol related.

By after the Game I went AFTER THE GAME. Not in the stadium...MORON!!!!!!! The party scene is where all this took place. DRUNK KIDS!! Calling someone a Fag in a blog is very innapropriate. Of course, to make the circle of rash generalizations complete, you must not be a "REAL FAN"

I wrote a one paragraph excerpt and you took my statements all over the place. First I was "in the stadium", then I was "in the parking lot". I was at the bars on W. 6th MORONS. Get a life...
