All fan bases are filled with Eeyoreitis. Why C. Trent thought it was appropriate to point that out when he did is still little more than a self righteous grandstanding from where I sit.
There is a difference between not winning the big one and the things I laid out above. Our teams couldn't win anything and then when they were finally good enough to actually get a real shot at it we wound up being no hit, our ACE throwing 7 pitches before being injured, the best player in college basketball breaking his leg in the last game before the tournament and our Pro-bowl QB tearing his ACL on the first play of the game.
