Suck it up, dude.
Uncomfortable situation at the basketball game
That ten year old kid totally made you his bitch. Since you probably aren't going to see him again, now you just have to live with it.
For the rest of his life.
Those kids were fathered by Hope.
This is the saddest part! I got owned by a little kid in an oversized Purdue basketball jersey.
I won't hit kids, but I will dish out wedgies with reckless abandon
You definitely have no problem with kicking a woman in her whispering eye.
Whispering eye... whispering... huh
You mean like a queef?
Don't want to make light of your situation, but that kind of behavior is normal and not nearly as bad as it can get.
After all, your life must suck if you're a Purdue fan.
All those purdue fans were so annoying today
I grew up in Indiana, and happily left to go to Michigan. I never had a problem with Purdue and even kind of liked them growing up. But, ever since their basketball program has come out of nowhere the last 10ish years (someone should actually look into that), they have developed a pretty bandwagonish fan base and tend to be very douchey now. They are now apparently a basketball school which is strange to hear as a child of the 90s. So that's my rant of the day, and to sum up: Purdue "fans" are very annoying.
Any school that taught John Wooden how to play the game of basketball automatically gets +100 in the "tradition" department.
I didn't neg you FWIW. The "out of nowhere" reference was a really poor attempt at SMU humor. I loved Coach Keady growing up mostly because he was the anit- Bobby Knight. But they were a self-proclaimed football school even when Keady was there. So in the sense they have been Indiana's perennial basketball national superpower for the last 10 years, yes, they came out of nowhere.
EDIT: This is really more of just a complaint to their fandom not their program. Didn't mean to offend anybody.
Why are people negging this? There's nothing neg-worthy in this post.
i believe purdue is the winningest program in big 10 history. and keady has more big 10 titles than bobby knight.
Actually Knight has 11 and Keady has 6. Purdue has fewer wins than IU and Illinois (below Notre Dame too). They are top 20 though, still a dominant bball program. I would love that history.
That is 100% correct +1 to you. But not the winningest program as umchicago suggested. Like I said, nothing but respect for their program.
If not quite elite. The place they struggle vs. the rest of the Big Ten's best is in National Titles. Keady could kick anyone's ass in the regular season, but never could quite get that push for Final Four greatness. So, hair bad, but coaching great.
I always thought he was doing it with less talent. He was up against Knight's Indiana when they we're a power, and got the best of the Midwest. Heck, he didn't usually have as good talent as the Illinois, Michigan, MSU type teams. But he regularly beat them (including Knight) by outcoaching them. The Tournament is just a time for talent to take over. Still is. And outside of the Glenn Robinson years there wasn't a lot of top level NBA talent going through Purdue. They would overachieve where others would regularly underachieve. Coaching.
me for believing a purdue friend. i think he also said that purdue has a winning record against every opponent. now i'm not so sure.
Ya Purdue basketball stats aren't really things people know off the top of their heads. I had to look all of that up. I had nothing else to do.
Focus your energy on fretting over Anthony Zettel. Is it 7:30 yet?
It's ok, theyre Boilermakers. Life for them pretty much sucks anyways, they probably cried in the car on the way home.
I almost cried watching the Purdue game, not for the obvious reasons. That stadium was the most depressing thing I've ever seen
People are seriously negging this?
As Dr. Phil says, "Get over it!"
The part of the thread where Wolverine318 threw a temper tantrum appears to have been deleted. If you had seen it, perhaps you would realize why this rather harmless comment received some negs.
Got it, thanks for the heads up.
Don't play the martyr. Your replies to Geaux Blue were as bad as his shots at you. Even if you don't intend to, your comments come off as bragging. You start comments with, "I run ultra-marathons," "I'm a GSI," "I sit in the student section." You have every right to defend your Purdue education, but doing it the manner in which you choose to do so is going to get a reaction from people. Did you really think there wasn't going to be some brushback when you start bragging about your Purdue degree in a thread about today's basketball game? You aren't that delusional are you?
Please, you aren't the victim. You're an adult, this is the internet, you can't really think that. You are as guilty as Geaux Blue and I of immature personal attacks (and of course several others). Take a look at some of your comments if you need a refresher. To act otherwise is completely ridiculous.
Note - I'm not going to continue this e-slapfight, because the argument was already deleted once.
Are you aware that you have over 13,000 points? There are only about 25 people with more points than you.
this has become a martyr crusade for him bc i questioned the quality of his posting as of late. nobody has said anything bad about him or made a personal attack but he thinks the world's out to get him.
Again, proof of your personal attacks. You aren't any better than the rest of us. If you're going to level personal attacks, be ready to have them thrown right back at you. If you want to cry about it, be my guest.
i was driving home when i got the emails that my comments had been deleted. i pointed out rather plainly you had gotten into the name-calling and rudeness whereas i merely pointed out the same that's being pointed out by another poster: you always have to defend the greatness of your student section (as if it could never have been better before you and your fellow students), you constantly mention going to purdue, you wear your GSI status on your sleeve and you post the same Fail pics, sometimes 10 times in a row, to gain points. where is there a lie? you can go into your posting history and see it's true.
and i would hardly call anyone who negged you my butt buddy. half of those people have called me out on my shit. the difference is i've actually acknowledged truth in what people have ripped me for and worked on it (i.e. being too sarcastic, shitty).
i haven't said one personal or rude thing in this.
I called out a double standard that exists towards non m undergrad alums that is present on this site.
??? Does anyone on this site have a clue whether someone went to Michigan or not? [Scours Michigan undergrad yearbook] - Dear Lord, I don't see anyone named "Wolverine318" anywhere! He's an impostor!
After reading the topic I thought you were going to say RichRod and David Brandon were given seats near each other.
And one of our fans were doing the same thing, the board would be giving him a medal. Doesn't sound like he was profane from your description. So put the hate in a back pocket of your mind and save it for when we're good again.
The 10 year old hurt your feelings, huh?
and suggest that not pushing a kid down the steps at Crisler was a good idea. You got that part exactly right.
Are you like a lawyer or sumthin'?
I ain't passed the bar but I know a little bit
Enough that you won't ILL Legely search my shit
well I never!
Probably should have told the kid that Santa isn't real
Especially with the "GetTapZooChristmas" ad right below it on the App.
You know what! There is no Easter Bunny. Over there, that's just a guy in a suit
You picked a dangerous mall to host a game show in. I hear the Easter Bunny was accosted this morning.
santa doesn't bring presents to adopted children....
it'll stay in their heads forever.....
that your not an asshole. that should be enough...
I'm just going to go ahead and guess that you've never pushed a ten year old kid down a flight of stairs. It definitely beats the mild satisfaction of knowing you are a decent human being.
If they haven't heard of the pleasure of knocking down an obnoxious rugrat.
I've only ever mentioned hypothetical child-fan beatings. Law school taught me better than to admit that shit all over the internets.
Better yet, a monster pos-bang. Max Cannon, the author of the cartoon strip Red Meat, would be so proud.
said, "Is you dad always an @sshole?" in front of the dad. I have done that several times before and it leaves everyone speechless.
Should have leaned over and whispered in the kids ear that you were his father.
I loved when you caught that TD against Virginia. That was the first game I went to.
The worst thing you can do is give an opposing fan the satisfaction that he got on your nerves...you conducted yourself like a true Michigan fan, with class.
We lose, you're a sore loser. We win, you're rubbing their nose in it. You gave the kid a shining example of how class acts behave. Acting in true Michigan Spirit requires that you not stoop to their level. I say Bravo! and hold your head high.
I would have just handed the kids candy (good candy, none of the generic stuff you inevitably wind up with on Halloween from the houses that just leave the bucket outside the front door so they can avoid the eleven seconds it would take to have real human interaction) and promised them more in my windowless van. Then, I would talk to them about Dora the Explorer or whatever's popular nowadays to gain their trust. Afterward, I would only need to...you know what, nevermind. You probably handled it better.
I thought all kids preferred a bag full of pennies?
Only if you have some 50-cent rolls for them to fill up with the pennies.
where the 10 yr old opened a beer using your teeth and stole your girlfriend
That's what you should have asked this man and his family?
I'm confused does this thread have any coaching change info in it?
You can more easily use him to trip the big dufass. you missed a great opportunity to demonstrate the value of leverage to the little [email protected]
I could hear the same guy behind me the whole game. His comments weren't that bad. Most comments were very old, overused and unoriginal. Just wait until next year when Purdue loses both JJ and Moore. The same guy will be keeping his mouth shut.
I find the fans of basketball schools to be really weird,
This is the first year since 2005 that I haven't had season tickets, so I was up in the Gold yesterday for the first time since the 2005-06 season. I thought the atmosphere was on par with 05-06, which was easily the most racuous season I've been at Crisler (save the Duke game). When we started to struggle the crowd got loud to support the team and when we made that run it was pretty electric. Unfortunately, it's tough to have a great atmosphere with a second half like the one we saw...
