As for arguing with UK fans. Dont do it. Its like taking to the wall. They believe their program is above all programs (like Notre Dame fan or Yankee fan). They know the stuff with Cal. They said it and believed it when he was at Memphis. But they are extremely loyal to their coaches. Its the way it is. Its true what they say...the recycled stuff they say about Cal (he has no violations). But just use some common sense (which isnt to common anymore). Hes had 2 college jobs before UK. Both schools lost final 4 appearances. But yet he is not dirty? Ummm ok.
Now, lets just all hope for a reds world series.
I agree. And like I've always said, UK fans' passion comes down to a lack of hobbies. College basketball's "best" fans are in Lexington, Durham, Lawrence, Chapel Hill and Lansing. The school with the most titles and of whom recently went to 3 straight final 4's - UCLA, has a lack luster fan base because L.A. has plenty to offer.
The most passionate NFL fans? Green Bay. I rest my case.
