    Re: University of Kentucky Men's Basketball -- 7th Edition

    For the record, UK stormed the field and tore down the goalposts after beating Tennessee in football earlier this year.

    And that was worth it. Can't blame Indiana fans (or anybody else who's had to deal with mediocrity).

    I've never been a snob about these things as we discussed earlier in the summer. In general, I'm for rushing the court for the biggest home win of the year. There's little doubt that beating the archrival, ranked number 1 coming into the game, on the last second shot will qualify as biggest win of the year. Even if tOSU gets to be #1 by the time IU plays them, it's still not as big of a win because there isnt' the historical rivalry with the Buckeyes that you have with Kentucky.

    Whether UNC, or Kentucky would or wouldn't shouldn't really have any concern to IU students or tOSU students or Vanderbilt students. It's a fun experience for everyone involved, and if your school is too cool for that, ce la vie.

    Worst fans Ive ever dealt with trying to leave. Had people come up to me and shove me while screaming F*** YOU AND F*** KENTUCKY.

    I will never ever root for anything good to happen in that state ever again. Louisville fans were 100x better.

    And they hang banners for PRESEASON NIT CHAMPIONSHIPS

    Waaaa. Oh you're not going to root for anything good to happen to Indiana ever again? I guess I better get my helmet.

    We've all had bad experiences with fans in other places. You think no one's ever been given a hard time at UK?

    I'm sorry that it happened but there are jerks in every crowd.

    No doubt. It comes with the territory going into a hostile environment.

    Of course, I live in a state that the state's flagship school throws rocks at busses of their in-state rival and distributes t-shirts making fun of a horriffic plane crash that scarred that rival. You really don't have much to complain about.

    EDIT NOTE: I just found this story from KSR.

    http://kentuckysportsradio.com/?p=102294

    As we enjoyed cheap domestic drafts, IU fan, after IU student, after IU alum berated us with “Kentucky f*ggots,” “Leave hillbillies,” “F*** Kentucky,” and “You are not welcome here.” Man and woman, boy and girl. If we were keeping statistics it would not be hyperbole to state we heard something along these lines once every 10 minutes, and we estimated that 1 in 7 Hoosiers we came across the entire day verbally assaulted us. It was the most uncomfortable I have ever been in an American town. Frankly, it didn’t even feel American. We couldn’t fathom the abuse we were taking nor where it was stemming from. It was that vitriolic.

    Yeah that's what I said. That's nearly well as ignorant as the people you encountered....well maybe not nearly but you get the point.

    All I'm saying is you could probably get stories like that at most rivalry games in the US. Is it right? Of course not but there are idiots that root for every team. And I have to believe that that story is slightly exaggerated.

    I used to live between Lexington and Louisville. My wife is Mexican, there were jerks wearing UK gear that made some less than PC comments. You know what that says to me about UK fans? Jack crap.

    Re: University of Kentucky Men's Basketball -- 7th Edition

    I had been wanting to ask you about your experience at the game 5timewschamps. It sounds like your experience was pretty typical of how UK fans were treated... pathetic behavior by IU fans. Sounds like it was primarily the under 30 and students...

    Thread with other first-hand accounts.

    I'm glad I wasn't at the game, if someone had shoved me or spit on me I'd be in an Indiana jail right now.

    Sorry to hear that happened to you. Often times fans let their emotions get the best of them.

    I agree with you on the rushing the court stuff. Players have been injured just not high enough profile players that would cause a knee jerk reaction.

    Any school in America would have rushed the court in that situation. Being unranked and beating #1.

    What game has been bigger over the past 20 years?

    This win is a crowning achievement for Crean, who, I'm sure, was feeling the heat from three consecutive really crappy seasons.

    It's a reminder to the IU fans that they should belong in the upper pantheon of the NCAA and to not accept mediocrity.

    It's a sign to potential recruits that IU is the type of program they might want to consider.

    The only win that comes close would be Mike Davis' Regional Finals game to put them in the Final Four. However, rightly or wrongly, IU was considered, at that time, as one of the top four programs in basketball history, with North Carolina, Kentucky, and UCLA.

    Before the Kentucky win, IU might have been mentioned seventh, behind those four, Duke, and Kansas.

    It's a generational win.

    Beating Duke in the Sweet 16 in 2002.

    Every win in the NCAA tourney > any win in December.

    This win is nice, but it doesn't mean much if they end up 18-12 or so. And Hoosier fans, this could happen. I don't think it will, but it could.

    Two friends of mine (U of L grads) will never go to Rupp because they got the same treatment there as you guys outlined above. Like Razor said, it happens everywhere. Sad but true.

    Alcohol surprisingly doesn't seem to make them act any better.
