First of all, you and one other player can't "get the whole table pushing every hand" no matter what you do. Everyone would have to have a predisposition to risky pushing, and not a lot of good players are willing to do that.
Second of all, the first time the two of you both push, one of you is knocked out of the tournament. So then what? If the remaining person just continues to push every hand, he'll eventually lose or get trapped and then he's out too.
Third of all, if you worked out this plan ahead of time, it might be considered colluding, except for the fact that it is so destined to fail that I don't think anyone would really mind.
It's an interesting idea, but I think if you work it through you will see that it can't really go that far. Which is why you probably never see good poker players play like that.
Just my opinion on the idea. Others may think differently.
