Perhaps hans could clear that up for you.
Hans, could you tell the man why you're a State fan?

Why anyone would want to be a state kollege fan is more puzzling to me.

If I were a packnopride member, I would be ashamed of the sheet they are posting on their redraginghaterboard. Their leader seems to be Dr.Yow. I guess she approves of their behavior. I'm just waiting to see what they do next.

Why any kerlina fan would claim to be an NCSU fan is beyond me.

Boo Hoo Hoo. This ain't nursery school. Maybe someone should offer Leslie a pacifier as a show of support. If these bozos can't handle a little criticism when they're stinking it up, then they're in the wrong business. The dude's points about always blaming the ref sand acting like State is better than everyone else (why anyone would do that is beyond me) are spot on, though.

Much of this is dead on. Especially the part about underestimating any team. This is particularly true with respect to conference play. I did not see the " make fun of wake forest" thread, but would certainly agree that the attitude behind it, if shared by the State team, was a recipe for disaster. Similarly, "blaming the refs" in any wholesale way is counter-productive... There will always be questionable calls... even flat-out, blatently blown calls. But mature teams adjust where necessary to reffing styles, and don't spend much time thinking about the call that should or should not have been made.
Having said all that, this post is "reasonable" in large part because of the underlying premise that this team is imperfect, and will lose at least some games in spite of effort. Every loss does not necessitate either excusez or blame.
Finally.... items 2) and 3) as well as the second sentence beneath run directly counter to any notion that the OP is "hans-esque". The OP is clearly a fan, and argues directly against trashing players and for "offer(ing)
our coaches and team our support".
These are clearly not "hans-isms".

It's your superbowl, Dr. Yow.
