RE: Hans, what will it take
Why is it that our conference cousins due west are constantly telling us State fans we need to stop worrying about UNC and their athletic superiority, yet all we are hearing on this thread is their concern about our football coach, schedule, won-lost records, etc., etc., etc.- Posted by tommybrownnc
It seems to me that the more our program seems to be passing theirs, the more they must find something, anything, to try and put us/our football program down. Now that we seem to be a little better than them in football, football is less important/relevant as a sport. How does the sport that, money-wise, is king, suddenly is portrayed as mediocre, at best?
It's "The Carolina Way".
If you lose at it, it doesn't matter or is "irrelevant". Hence the snide remarks about State fans "only" caring about beating UNC, never mind the fact that most of the time when we're posting among ourselves about State football we're not even mentioning UNC. It's only when they interject themselves into the conversation that we mention UNC at all. Of course, you always have the off-the-deep-end fools that like to make fun of State fans for talking about going to the Fiesta Bowl last season (swear to God, I never saw one single State fan mention the Fiesta Bowl, it was only UNC fans) in an apparent effort to deflect attention away from their own, more mediocre football program.
I guess if you beat your chest about how great you are, how great your team is, how great of a collection of prospective professional players you have, how great your coach is, and what they're going to do only to see those great prospects fail to beat their non-rival school five years running while simultaneously sullying your previously virginal academic reputation and losing your coaching staff over academic and improper benefit issues, the only thing you can do with any degree of metronomic regularity at all is to try and pee on the non-rival for anything you can think of, either real or perceived.
I have arrove at the conclusion that envy must not really be green, but instead powder blue. They should know, however, they need to be careful when trying to pee on us farmers, what with all the electric fences we all have around our pastures nowadays. They've been warned.
