Bumped - P
This game was incredible and me and my friends managed to snag some front row seats on the goal line in the student section. So many crazy things happened during the game, it was such an amazing experience being a part of such an electrifying crowd. This is the most excited I've seen the Coliseum in my four years of attending game, I know that isn't an incredibly long streak to most fans but I didn't exactly grow up watching football(let alone SC football).
The crowd was in the game from kickoff till the fumble in the endzone in triple OT. Cheering "U S C" so loud the Cardinal were called for a delay of game. There were many times where I thought we had the game, but Stanford just kept coming.
Coming out of the gates in the beginning of the 3rd was Curtis McNeal, ready to go, scoring a touchdown on the 3rd(?) play of the first drive in the second half. A 61 yard touchdown! I think that is our longest running TD of the year. Even after the game, a LARGE amount of students and other fans stayed behind, speechless, attempting to come to grips with what had just transpired. Soothed only by the AMAZING Trojan marching band, swaying our moods from heartbroken to hopeful for our next games, Dr. Bartner is truly inspirational.
While I came into this match feeling like I personally needed a win because of various things in my life as a senior, I definitely came out with a better understanding of what it is like to truly "Fight On!"
While many of you may have found the loss disappointing, I am proud of the team, each and everyone.
Would anyone care to share their thoughts on the game, the student section today, or just anything in general?
