Yet another OT loss for the Huskies has once again lead to calls for No Tee OT to be abandoned.
The reason behind these calls is the Huskies abysmal record in OT since this tradition started. No one knows for sure, but it doesn’t seem like the Huskies have ever won during No Tee OT. But even if they haven’t, that is no reason to get rid of it.
No Tee OT is completely unique and original. No other school has anything like it. And while not everyone takes their shirt off, it does get everyone fired up for overtime. And as fans, that’s our only responsibility: to be loud and support the team during the final 5 minutes.
Call me crazy but I don’t think a bunch of people in the balcony with their shirts off is the reason the Huskies can’t win in OT. I have yet to hear a player or coach come out after a loss and blame it on No Tee OT. NU was going to lose these games regardless of if people were wearing shirts or not.
No Tee OT is a cool tradition that no one else has. And as long as it continues to get people excited for overtime, it should stay. Blame the failures on the players and coaching staffs. Not the fans.
