...and the attendance started dwindling even more toward the end of the game... :smile:
I don't like longhorn fans at all. I have many close friends, including my business partner, who are UT grads and although they are generally very nice fans on the surface they are universally smug and have an entitled attitude (both fans and the team have this mentality). There are many fans who honestly feel like they are supposed to compete for national championships every year; Hell, even Mack Brown said, "At texas we can compete for a national championship every year." And their fanbase has entepreted that as "We should compete..." and they believes it 100%. They believe it so blindly that if you are not also perceived in the category of "national championship contender" then you do not exist. It's definitely an upper class, I'm above you but it's only proper to be polite mentality. I know season ticket holders that only go to games if the opponent is a top 10 team (or called the sooners) because they don't even consider it a contest otherwise and have said they'll pass on any bowl game unless it's a BCS.
I'll agree that you don't get a lot of the typical rude fan behavior (at least not yet, wait till they have a couple of down years in a row) that you get with most fanbases and that makes them seem like great fans on the surface, but talk to a horn fan long enough and their smug, entitled attitude come shining through.
CyPhilis can suck it- he went there and said we were lame and wanted to hang out with the shagsters- this was during the uconn-isu thread with Al (i think it was Al).
While it was probably a joke, it kinda makes us look like the eager to please freshman girl at her first frat house party.
A lot of it is a generational gap in humor taste. Many people on this board would find shaggybevo to be classless. I think it's hilarious.
Can you imagine the MS Paint stuff being accepted around here? You'd get lots of uptight folks talking about how classless it makes ISU look, blah blah blah.
Yeah, Yeah, Al. That's why I lurk there too. I do enjoy your posts there.
There needs to be an "Anything Goes" forum on this site with no restrictions because don't get me wrong, I LOVE CF but, Shaggy Bevo > CF...
I would think that the filter applies across the board. But given that Mr. Janny is all-knowing, I am sure he can make it happen. :cool:
