good article. the first part was a little harsh but i don’t think he intended it that way, i think he was meaning it doesnt say as much to say “I’m a 49er” because of the lack of school spirit.
The worst part for me is that the diehard fans that are around here (yeah, including me) haven’t really formed up to create an alliance to STOP the IDIOTS walking around wearing crap from other schools that they didn’t get into or that their parents went into or that they like one team from that school because they don’t lose a lot. ITS RIDICULOUS.
Regardless of who wears what at basketball games, our STUDENTS should not EVER be seen wearing that stuff at an athletic event or around campus. If you don’t have enough money to buy Charlotte stuff or to have a week’s worth of other clothes, you shouldn’t be in college. If you’re damned stupid enough to wear stuff from the school you didn’t get into, you shouldn’t be in college.
I should further admit that including my three roommates, my girlfriend and I, Charlotte was all of our first choice. I got into Wake, UNCG, and Charlotte. My girlfriend got into App, UNCG, UNC-CH, and Charlotte, and I’m not too sure about my roommates, they might have only applied to Charlotte.
One of my roommates grew up a Wake fan for his entire life. Football games when they were horrible, Wake bball games no matter how good they were they always had season tickets, his dad just went to Cameron to watch Wake get it handed to them, so on, so forth. I LIVE with the guy…I have NEVER seen him wear anything WF. That’s how it should be.
So I propose that we create a UNITED FRONT that promotes ASS KICKERY of those dumbasses.
There is a student, or a few students, that wear Chapel Hill stuff to Charlotte bball games sometime, and although us around here do heckle them, sometimes it’s not to the point of success. If at least not around campus, we HAVE to make sure students KNOW not to pull that at a game.
