Saw this on facebook. Anyone know anything more about this?

This is my son, an OSU Equipment Manager. OU has a decades "old" tradition of catching the opponents kicker football, then tossing it out of the stadium. I've witnessed it, if you've been to a game you've seen it. My son was booed last night by OU fans on the jumbotron for retrieving the OSU football, then quite frankly 5 grown adult men (OU fans)... tried to steal the football out of the hands of DJ. They lost that battle, and DJ came back with the ball, but has a broken rib and several others bruised, before he really new what happened. Thank you to the other managers than ran to his side. This job goes back decades of equipment managers for OSU and any college for that matter that plays there. Back to when my husband was an Equipment Manager at OSU.

OU fans: if you where there and booed my son, unfriend me, if you were there and saw this, message me. If you agree this should stop then share this post. When a young OSU student doing his job gets hurt over a football tradition that quite frankly seems childish, it's time for change.

Why can’t they use nets like other stadium to catch the ball? I assume it has to with w age and setup of the stadium.

Hey Rob and Andy? You’re neglecting a thread you did a lot of talking in.

Of course you don't address the behavior of the sh!t bag goons that attacked our equipment manager. I'd expect no less hypocrisy out of you after your cried for years and years about the cheerleader phantom trip and the alleged turkey leg toss.

They like visiting teams co-mingling with their trash fans. That way the other team knows who they're mething with.

Believe it or not, I’m not THAT fan. While funny, I always thought the throw the football out of the stadium thing was pretty stupid.

I don’t yell Boomer Sooner in public. I’ve honestly only done it in the confines of the Cotton Bowl. Threw a Texas Sucks at the end for good measure too.

Watch the video, genius. You literally see the ball sail past the exact same Allstate hands that are in every stadium.

Watch it again yourself ,idiot. The net is purposefully not raised all the way...the same way it is not for all opponent kicks on that end.
