I had booked a trip to Miami after PSU beat OSU. My wife and I went without tickets. We arrived Wednesday afternoon and found the festivities. We ran into a large group of Oklahoma fans. I inquired about tickets to the game. When I told them we were from Penn State we were greeted with compliments of respect for Penn State and Coach Paterno. The guy we spoke to located tickets from their touchdown club within minutes. The guy with the tickets sold them to us for face value knowing he could have gotten at least $400 a piece for them. Again they were quite complimentary of our program. On the day of the game we arrived at Dolphins stadium around 530 pm. I wore my Happy Valley shirt to the game. I was insulted numerous times by the Florida fans. I watched Gator fans heavily insult the Oklahoma fans everywhere we went. I did not witness this from the Oklahoma fans. We sat in the Oklahoma upper end zone. Again we were greeted warmly by the Sooners but regularly attacked by Gators. We had a great time being there. The excitement level was near what I had hoped it would be. The game was exciting. The crowd was loud. I want to share the fact that Oklahoma fans treated us just as I would have expected Penn State to treat another teams fans. On the other hand, Florida fans were nasty, obnoxious, and actually in a way ungreatful to be in the National Championship Game. It is a shame that Oklahoma could not execute well enough to win becasue they were certainly the most deserving. It's a long way away, but I hope we can be in the game next year. Go State!!!
