Re: Clint Hurtt on "Administrative Leave" from the University of Louisville
Western cares because Louisville fans are irritating in their superiority complex (much like Kentucky fans) and the teams have a recent history of going after some of the same players.
Many WKU fans feel they play by the rules (or at least closer to the rules) while other teams within the commonwealth ignore them with no repercussions. And that's frustrating.
Louisville fans also feel like, if Hurtt hadn't come to Louisville, they'd still be a second-division Big East team-- which could have made Western's meteoric rise from Division II to Division I doormat to bowl team the larger story that they believe it deserves it to be.
