    See that’s what amazes me. There are lots of us linivg in Fayetteville who don’t give a rip about Hogs football or any other college football team for that matter. Doesn’t it strike you as a little silly to think that the entire population of Fayetteville gets excited about football? I don’t have a problem with fans being devoted and crazy for their team. If that’s what you enjoy then absolutely more power to you, honestly and sincerely. Those of us who don’t share your enthusiasm shouldn’t be discounted or seen as second class citizens because we don’t agree or see the draw. And I still stand by the fact that the coach is a class A jerk. I don’t get that from watching ESPN because I don’t watch sports on tv or read about them in the paper. I get it from friends in the press and even more from friends employed at the UA. These folks have a clearer vantage point that most of the general population in Fayetteville. I will correct my statement about the athletes though. Burgerboy is probably correct in that most of them are good young men with a few elitist punks who tend to color the rest of them in a poor light.
