A recent thread has now drawn over 100 responses. I've noticed recently that threads of this length seem to go through stages. Stage One: Contrary positions are expressed Stage Two: Complaints about the contrary positions are expressed Stage Three: The contrary positions are hyperbolized for greater complaints Be that as it may, what disappointed me about a certain thread was the response from triaddukefan (what does that handle mean, by the way?). I tossed out for potential discussion the smackdown of Maryland by Duke this coming year (for those who might have missed it, the egregious thread was started by a Maryland fan). I was anticipating that our resident Dookie would run with it. In a thread that passed the point of politeness and rationality I threw a lob ball for any Terp hater to hit for a home run. Instead, he (she?) gets all rational and argues with the wording smackdown. Forget Stage Two here, I'm jumping to Stage Three. Triaddukefan, you are an embarrassment to your kind. For your sake I hope CamCrazy did not see your tepid response. I get that you are a visitor here; I get that visitors need to go the extra mile on politeness and rationality .... but that only applies to when YOU ARE DISCUSSING UCONN!!! When we bring up a hated rival here get a little backbone and take the gloves off for crying out loud! Pathetic man. Just pathetic.
