However, there were far too many Gator fans that found it necessary to shove it in our faces walking back to the car, in the car leaving, and the next morning at the airport. There was the fan outside the stadium that came up to me and yelled "It must suck!!!" at the top of her lungs in my face, there was the two fans that came up and started harassing my friends and I when walking back to the car, there was the fan that saw us in the car and gave us a full moon, the many fans that gave us hearty "F the Buckeyes" in our faces, and the cherry on top was the lady that walked over to where people were waiting to board our flight back (all quiet Bucks fans including quite a few player parents) and she started singing the Gator cheering song at the top of her lungs (in the airport!). Unfortunately, as has been the case of opponent fans judging OSU fans, the few will be remembered that were idiots. Those idiots totally ruined my perception of Gator fans...one that was 100% positive as I had nothing but good experiences talking to fans before the game. It seemed to me that once they won, every Gator fan I talked to suddenly found it necessary to shove it down my throat. Keep in mind myself and 4 other friends had already gotten together about how we would respond to what we anticipated to be a crowd of idiots (we were right). We all stuck together, said nothing to anyone that heckled us, and kept looking ahead. In short, we did nothing to provoke them.
I'll share more experiences from the game as they come up in discussion (crunched for time right now). In short, it was an amazing experience (despite the game itself) and one that I would recommend to anyone if they are given the chance. It's very rare to get to witness a game that hyped in person and all of the events leading up to the game were fun and unbelievable. I'll mostly remember the plane ride from Dallas to Phoenix (at least 80% of the entire flight was wearing Bucks clothing), the pep rally Sunday afternoon (37,000 Bucks fans showed up), walking around visiting the Bucks hotel (nicest I have ever seen anywhere, unbelievable), Mill Ave resembling High St on Sunday (Buckeye fans everywhere) and doing the stadium O-H-I-O chant before the game in the stadium. That and the buzz in the stadium were unbelievable, spine tingling moments that topped even the Michigan game from 2 months ago. I'll definately try to put up a few of my many pictures if I get more time later.
