Well, I'm back. After an offseason that saw me swear to never update again, due to a real life event depicting the power of the internet in the hands of batshit insane people, I have decided to break my silence. On what, you are probably (not) asking yourself?
Why, none other than the comments made by Boise State President Bob Kustra regarding the University of Idaho!
Well, to start with, I'm not going to type them out here. You can easily find them, as outside of Oregon losing their entire starting lineup for the next three years due to criminal activity, it has been a slow offseason. Suffice to say, the title of this entry made an appearance in his comments, in regards to the University of Idaho fanbase.
Hey, Whiny Bob! Guess what? To make things easy for you, I am going to make a list of all the rivalries in the history of college football that have seen fans be "mean and nasty" to their opponents.
Oh, I'm not actually going to make that list. You want to know why, faithful reader? I'll let you in on a little secret that Crybobby doesn't want you to know....
Literally EVERY SINGLE RIVALRY EVER has fans like that.
Yes, it's true. Despite What About Bob's insistence that the nationwide rivalries (side note: read his comments again, I'll wait. Focus on what rivalries he talks about, and figure out why it is so funny that he said nationwide. Give up? Theyre all Big-12) he has seen are nothing like this, I promise you that any fan of any team ever will agree that that is how rivalries work.
Now, it isn't all bad. Every single Boise State alumni/student/professor that I have had contact with since Kryin' Kustra's remarks were made public has disagreed with him overwhelmingly. This includes his quarterback Horseface Moore saying on the local news that he thinks it should continue.
Of course, Whiny McWhinesalot's biggest gripe was that U of I fans mock BSU's academics. This is interesting to me. Because, during my graduation from BSU (that's right angryfootballfans, I actually graduated from that school), the Petulant President himself gave a speech. Now, usually at college graduations, when the head honcho talks, they focus on academics.
Rude Robert, however, mentioned academics a whopping 0 times. This is because he had to fit in his 4 references to the football team and the Fiesta Bowl. I mean, this does make sense, because the total number of football players (recognizable ones, anyway) that were graduating was far larger than the numbers of non football players. Assuming, of course, that the one player graduating was literally the only graduate. But I have a sheet of paper not two feet from me that proves otherwise. And some of you might think "Well, there is no way he actually counted those references," my response to you is that you don't know me very well.
Hey Kustra (and you can tell I'm serious because I'm using your real name here), I'm going to offer some free advice. When you yourself are basically disregarding academics, it looks absurd when you whine about someone else making fun of them. Maybe next time you could talk about something besides football. But then, I guess that would require your school to give money to something besides football, and we all know that isn't happening.
I could go on for hours (and I have with several people in real life), but instead, I'm just going to make a quick point here, since I'm running out of clever nicknames for President Tears.
The hypocrisy inherent in bitching for years about "All these schools aren't scheduling us because they say they have nothing to gain" and then turning around and refusing to play your in-state rival like a three year old not wanting to take a nap is hilarious.
Of course, I guess I shouldn't complain too much, since Kustra throwing away what goodwill people felt towards BSU (and if you don't believe this, you haven't read any o the myriad espn/SI articles about this) makes my job a whole lot more entertaining.
Anyway, that's all I'm going to say on this matter. Soon, I will have a season preview up, complete with some conference and bowl game predictions! Look forward to it, angryfootballfans!
