Those fans should be shunned. At least until they realize the foolishness of their ways.
I didn't say they were reasonable. The problem is that many of them are high-level boosters--not the kind who simply have nice seats in Rupp.
I am talking about the types that get practice facilities named after them.
BCG refuses to pander to them. Some might let you go around acting like the Lone Ranger when you are winning 85% of your games. Bobby Knight pulled it off for decades.
But it is entirely different to have two first-team All-SEC players, display mediocrity against a weak schedule, and then continue acting surly towards the gentlemen who are funding your entire existence...
Unfortunately, in major collegiate sports, that is tantamount to signing your own death certificate.
