Non-diehard OSU fans need to flock to the game

STILLWATER — This plea is for the fair-weathered Oklahoma State fans, the tire-kickers, the ones battling college football's version of ADD.

Thousands of tickets remain for today's 6 p.m. game between Houston and OSU at Boone Pickens Stadium, and we suggest you buy them.

The 35,000 or so diehard fans will be there, screaming their orange lungs out when the beloved Cowboys debut inside their dream stadium.

These are the fans who never waver, who show up no matter who the opponent, no matter what the weather, no matter what their team's won-loss record.

Take a bow, OSU diehards.

Majestic Boone Pickens Stadium now offers a seating capacity 60,000, which is 9,000 more seats than it's ever offered before.

That leaves 25,000 seats for the less committed, those fans who waver, depending on the opponent, the weather and their team's record.

With the stadium's horseshoe configuration now nestled close to Gallagher-Iba Arena, there's no place for crowd noise to go but directly back in your face.

Boone Pickens Stadium potentially could become the loudest outdoor arena in the Big 12, perhaps in all of college football.
