let's get it on

I've been to a lot of football games in my life. But the atmosphere around this game is like nothing else. It's not like OU weekend, because there isn't the visceral hatred of the other side, and I haven't seen any cussing grandmas ... yet. It's not like the Rose Bowl in January - no game is ever going to compare to that and no atmosphere will ever be as charged as it was in Pasadena on January 4.

But this weekend's OSU game is big. Huge. People have been tailgating since Wednesday. Game Day Live was setting up (at the other end) in Mike Meyers stadium this afternoon. Traffic around campus is already insane. There are people in red walking around our city like they have any business being here. I can't wait for tomorrow. And I hope the game lives up to the hype!
