... i'm surprised by the negative reaction to the OP. As if you haven't insulted opposing 19-year-old amateur athletes? There is a certain emu and OSU QB who would beg to differ.
While I agree that we should always root for him because he is on our team, I can say that I don't like the way he interacts with the media and he does come off as insincere. Strike it up to immaturity, but it doesn't mean I have to like it. The OP should be entitled to his opinion without people making hypocritical statements about how we shouldn’t negatively speak of “unpaid” athletes. If you don’t think we should insult unpaid athletes, hold to that rule for all teams not just UM. If you think we shouldn’t be critical of our own team than you should just state you are circling the wagons and are refusing to listen to alternative viewpoints.
