    OT: The ignorance of Tennessee's fans

    First Post Banner
    Well the first few fans on Aztectalk that came on were classy and sticked but then out of no where racist hicks came on and it got really ugly.

    And lots of people were discounting our win over you guys twice saying UNM is a wish-washy team and couldn't compete in the SECEmotWOW

    Ignorance and Tennessee tend to go hand-in-hand. They still believe they can win the civil war.

    We will see what those ignorant clowns have to say when SDSU and UNM are both on their way to the sweet 16 and they are on their way to visit the other half of their team in the slammer.

    Would love to see SDSU beat UT and turn that smirk of Bruce Pearl's Rightside-up. As far as SEC fans go and more specifically UT and Kentuclky fans they think no one is as good as they are.

    love this time of year. all that matters is right on the court. messageboard talk is fun and all but it could be done without for a few weeks ;) (the visiting of other rival boards in general can be nerve racking)

    I'm sure RedPitSea was referring to Kawhi Leonard --- THE freshman of the year who was outstanding in Las Vegas. Watching him against UNLV was like watching a surgeon go to work. He was awesome. I'll be rooting for him against Tennessee and every other team SDSU plays UNTIL the Lobos meet up with the Aztecs again.

    Go Lobos!
    Go Aztecs!
    Go Rebels!
    and yes, even, as hard as it is to say, much less write: Go Cougars!

    Let's show the country what the MWC is all about.

    I've had the misfortune of going to Knoxville a couple of times on business. The University of Tennessee has some great athletic facilities, but there are definitely a lot of people down there who are still fighting the civil war even if in their own minds.

    Chris Perez Sr. (Father of Chris Perez Jr., who will be a walk on for the Lobos this fall) has been working in Tennessee for the last year. The home office is in Nashville. He was supposed to be able to work remotely from California for most of the time but they chained him to a desk and won't let him leave the office. So on top of living away from his family for the past year all he hears all day from his co-workers is how great Vandy and Tennessee are. He tried to ask his corporate sponsors if they could score him some MWC tourney passes for us and none of them knew what he was talking about. They did however offer him some SEC tourney passes. They do not want to acknowledge that any basketball is played West of the Mississippi. I will be pulling for the Aztecs to blow the Volunteers out and I know Chris's Dad will as well.

    I grew up in Knoxville and lived there until I was about 20. East Tennessee is a very beautiful place with lots of great people, however, there are lots of redneck d-bags like the ones you described who just love to F up and ruin things for everybody else. The racist/redneck population in Tennessee, and my love for New Mexico, are the primary reasons that I will never live there again (in addition to the oppressive humidity which comes in a distant third). I come from a prominent hick lineage, and growing up I was thoroughly exposed to the kind of ignorant, racist attitudes you described. It sucks that these are the folks that are representing for Tennessee, but their numbers are so large its bound to happen - its one of the bad things about anonymous postings on the internet.

    To follow on lobo46's post, fans who follow the SEC really don't think anything of importance goes on outside of that conference. More broadly, lots of people I know in Tennessee don't think anything of importance goes on outside the southeast, period. To these folks, UNM and SDSU are obscure universities - I can hear it now - "Who? They play basketball there? I wonder how badly our Vols will crush them?" I guarantee most have never heard of the Pit. I've been in New Mexico for almost 15 years and some of my family members (in Tennessee) still think I'm in Arizona. Some were disappointed because they thought I was moving to Mexico. Some still think I'm in Mexico.

    I think the chances are very high, next years SDSU team will be by far the most talented of the Fisher era, so very good chance he will go out with a bang, on top of this there are some saying he could be a late lottery pick if he came out this year, but he has already stated he is coming back

    For as obscure they are, UNI fans are surprisingly arrogant. We've flamed with them pretty much from the start. Although they have a solid team, their fanbase thoroughly believes their team and the MVC is superior to the MWC, and the best of the MWC. In their eyes, we're no contest, and the battles we've fought against each other are overrated. They also believe they got jobbed with a nine-seed.

    I think everyone is going to find out just how tough the MWC is.

    The running joke at Rebel-Net is how many variations we can come up with for the University of Northern Iowa in passive conversation, i.e. Northern Idaho's defensive percentages are tough to beat, etc. Total comedy.

    If SDSU can play with the focus they had in the tourney, their talent can take them a long ways. Next year, MWC should be in the top 4 power conferencew with the studs UNM, SDSU, and UNLV return and bring in.

    SDSU should be able to handle Tennessee. SDSU has the athletes to compete with any team in the tourney. Key for them is for thier guards to stay out of foul trouble, protect the ball and hit some 3's. I hope Kawhi doesn't think he is a 3pt bomber now that he hit 3 of them against the lobos. He is more dangerous hanging out around the basket.

    I saw their board, what a bunch of tools. Like beating Iowa and Iowa State is a feather in anyone's cap. It must be in the water back there because there seems to be an overwhelming exaggeration of self-importance in the entire state. Kick their ass.

    Go MWC!

    Tennessee fans are some of the worst in the country.

    People in Alabama look down on them, so that ought to tell you something...

    Dude, I went and checked out NIU's website... I had to do a double-take! I thought you guys were already playing Kansas from the arrogance those guys displayed. They're already talking about beating Kansas. There was NO respect for UNLV, and they discounted your win in Albuquerque and Alford to the point where I think this is where most, if not all, the Iowa bandwagoners ended up. I got off the board mad, and I want UNLV to kick the living crap out of these idiots now.

    Please, kill these guys. Really.

    Dominique played against Kawhi last year in high school. The first game we played he tried to shoot 3's the entire game and we won. The next game he played nothing but the post and we lost to them. He does have a track record of shooting more three's than he should especially if he is coming off a good shooting game. I am sure Fisher will keep him pointed in the right direction.
