Whine and Cheese Party
- As if I could top my 100% score on predicting the season so far, we now turn our attention to the aftermath. Before I do, let me first say that the following observations do not apply to every Husker fan I’ve met this week. A decent number of them have taken their beating this week like adults and are well aware of their team’s shortcomings. Many of them have taken their medicine, and are now looking for ways to rebuild amid the swirling toilet of a season they find their favorite team in.
However, the fruits of my labor are no more evident than the whiney, tantrum-filled, tear stained replies in my comments section from Sunday’s entry. Instead of discussing the games, instead of bragging on your Rival stars, tradition, TV coverage and upcoming recruits, here is what you have been reduced to:
“You’re so arrogant, you’ve become what you hate.”
“You had a typo in your comments section”
"I'm never coming back"
“Your team has never won anything”
"You don't have 1/2 the class of Husker fans"
“You use your prepositional phrases in stupid and unimaginative ways”
“The music you listen to sucks”
On and on and on and on and on.
At what point do you look at yourself in the mirror, and realize what you are doing and saying? At what point do you just throw your hands up and say, “you win”? At what point do you figure out that you are playing right into the hands of your enemies by burying your precious reputation further and further while whining and crying like 5 year old girls?
Take this from a guy who is VERY used to defending a bad team. When you are pondering how to fight back after a HORRIBLE performance like that, it’s best to just stop. Fight the urge to say something stupid, because most likely you’re just going to make things worse. This is especially the case for you, since many other fans of other teams stop by here, just to see what idiotic things you’ll say.
- Here’s another piece of advice for you: If you plan on going to an away game to watch your team, and you act like a complete prick…expect the retribution to be rather harsh. I saw numerous examples of drunken behavior toward opposing fans on Saturday, and it was pretty much a 50/50 split on what color shirt they were wearing. Regardless, don’t you find it ironic that EVERY time you lose a road game, the opposing fans are “animals”, “rude” or my favorite “classless”.
Your demeanor and arrogance during the past forty years has oozed pompous elitism. Did you think for ONE SECOND that this would continue when opposing fans now have the upper hand in terms of how bad your team is? Why is this so shocking? You want to see “classless”…go to any NFL stadium in the country and you will see 100x worse than what I witnessed Saturday. You hayseeds are so far away from reality, that your reaction is a knee-jerk script every single time something like this happens. It’s lame, and you end up looking like a giant bunch of hypocritical pansy asses when you do it.
Last time I went to a game in Lincoln, one of the Classiest Fans in the Nation hit me in the back with a Runza. Trust me, it goes both ways. Besides, do you get some sort of trophy by being "classy"? Just curious.
- I love how beating a crappy Wake Forest or Nevada team brings out the compliments of how “tough” of an opponent was. However, when a damn good Missouri team absolutely ass-pounds the Huskers on National TV, not a word is mentioned by anyone as to their dominance. (I’m surprised Rich Kaipust even had the Tigers on his top 25 ballot.) No mention of the weapons that Chase Daniel used to carve up your defense like a pot roast dinner at Golden Corral. No mention of the fact that Gary Pinkel…the same guy you mocked for years…made the GRF™ look like a complete idiot. Nothing. It's all something your own coaches did or did not do. (I even saw one guy who blamed himself for not wearing his lucky Johnny Rogers jersey)
I’m not fishing for praise of my favorite team, nor would I expect it from you. However, it is simply my observation that you people are more likely to blame the color of your socks for your failure than the fact that you got whipped by the better team.
- Sorry the Okie State background is not ready yet. Justin in Reno is a bit behind and I figured you’d probably want to see the Tiger logo on the blog for a few more days anyway. Don’t worry…we’ll get back into the rotation within a few days.
WEEK 6 POWER POLL
1) Missouri (5-0) at Oklahoma:
The Tigers have been in this situation before. However, they’ve rarely looked this good in getting there. I doubt they’ll be able to beat OU in Norman, but if they do…prepare to hear ridiculous things like the word “Mizzou” and “BCS bid” in the same sentence.
2) Colorado (4-2) at Kansas State:
Beating Oklahoma at home was big. Beating Kansas State would give the Buffs a key road victory that would solidify their challenge for the North.
3) Kansas (5-0) vs. Baylor:
The Squaks have yet to leave the state, beat a mediocre K-State team and have the 95th ranked SOS in the nation. Their opponents have a combined 10-18 record, and I don’t think Baylor is going to help that much.
4) Kansas State (3-2) vs. Colorado:
Which KSU team will show up Saturday night vs. the Buffs? You gotta think the loser of this one gets pushed to the back of the bus with Iowa State and Nebraska.
5) Nebraska (4-2) vs. Oklahoma State:
The Husker death spiral continues. I really don’t know how things could get worse for NU, but I guess we will find out. Will the Huskers actually score a TD? I heard the Okie State defense is better than #97th in the country.
6) Iowa State (1-5) vs. Texas:
Texas has a knack for playing down to competition. Now that they’re sitting toward the bottom of the South, it wouldn’t be shocking if they sleepwalk through the game in Ames. The Clones have little to lose, which makes them dangerous.
1) Oklahoma (5-1) vs. Missouri:
There is no reason the Sooners won’t be able to run all over Mizzou on Saturday. However, the Sooners have given up 21 or more points in each of the last 3 games. Good thing Missouri can’t score.
2) Texas Tech (5-1) vs. Texas A&M:
Things suddenly get much tougher for Mike Leach’s team. Their offense can score on anybody, but the days of Rice, SMU and Northwestern State are gone.
3) Texas A&M (5-1) at Texas Tech:
Coach Fran continues to hang on by a thread, as the Aggies face a huge test in Lubbock. The winner of this one will most likely face off with OU later on in the year for a trip to San Antonio.
4) Texas (4-2) at Iowa State:
Has there been a bigger disappointment this year than the Longhorns? Weren’t the Huskers a good enough example as to why Rivals rankings don’t mean squat? Luckily for UT, the Big 12’s three worst teams await in Iowa State, Baylor and Nebraska.
5) Oklahoma State (3-3) at Nebraska:
How good would the pokes be if they had a defense? A huge opportunity awaits in Lincoln, while Callahan and Cosgrove are still employed.
6) Baylor ( 3-3) at Kansas:
Anybody think the Jayhawks are due for a letdown after playing their 2nd biggest rivals last week? Baylor has the 2nd worst defense in the league (behind Nebraska), but something tells me they’ll give KU more of a game than people think.
