I was happy to see JTS do a moment of silence and give the opposing fans their time to reflect. It if were any other university playing OSU that day, I would expect them to do the same.
That was truly one of the great moments in Jack Trice Stadium history in my opinion. If my memory serves me right, all 52,000 were so silent you could hear a pin drop. Glad to see every Cyclone fan show appropriate respect.
I don't read it as those quotes were excuses. It's a second tragedy with a plane crash for okie state. Players take their cues from the coaches and to say it had no effect on the game, I doubt very much. Very sad day for them. I remember the night Chris Street died vividly, we were told at high school basketball practice and it had an impact on every player in the team . Still one of the greatest wins in cyclone football history but I think questioning the emotional impact on the okie state is unnecessary.
