"I think it’s dumb. I’d rather have the stadium full.”

— Ryan Johnson, Edmond


"One of our OU friends from Tulsa said Mike Holder hates OU so much he won’t sell the tickets to anybody. I said, ‘No, he loves OSU so much he won’t sell them.’ I’m not worried about empty seats. I’d rather see empty seats than red.”

— Jerry Greer, Tulsa

"I like it. I think it’s very smart. I don’t want half of our stadium to be red. If we wanted a neutral field, we should play in Dallas. The seats are orange when they’re empty.”

— Jim Parker, Choctaw

"I understand what he’s trying to do, and it’s been successful selling season tickets. But if the stadium isn’t full on Bedlam, that’s crazy. I’d rather have the place full.”

— Jonathan Key, Bartlesville

"I’m an OU football fan (and OSU basketball fan), and I think it’s great. The home field advantage plays a big part. That’s why you have to go to somebody else’s stadium every other year.”

— Crane Fowler, Ponca City
