How can any of you root for an AAC teams? Any time a school does well in this conference it moves them closer to a P5 invite. Gone are the days of rooting for conference mates. I enjoyed that when we were in the BE but until we get into a P5 conference it's every school for themselves. For all we know this win catapults Memphis into the B12 and leaves us stuck in crap.....honestly, I just can't hope any of our conference mates do well. If we were guaranteed to all be in this dumpster fire for awhile Id cheer or feel good for their win, not the hideous brawl. However, with rumors swirling, I'm kinda bummed they won.
That's the kind of unsportsmanlike attitude that helped keep us out of the ACC . Go ahead ....keep it up, lets see how fast the Huskies get invited anywhere. If your part of a group, you band together, you work togfether. All for one and one for all....until you find a way out of it. But... in the mean time you represent like you were where you want to be. That's the high road. That's what gets respect.
As far as the brawl...what a shame. Memphis has a golden opportunity to get respect not only for themselves but for the league and they blow it regardless of what BYU said or did.
Memphis dude - I understand that it's chest-thumping time for you, your fanbase and school. Your turnaround from 2013 to 2014 was truly remarkable and a feat that we all hope UCONN can replicate from 2014 to 2015. Congratulations on that. But what we're talking about here is a disgusting, embarrassing fight that has no place in any sporting event. BYU showed just how poor of a loser they are and Memphis showed just how poor of a winner they are. There is absolutely no other way to summarize what happened.
It really does suck that the fight completely overshadowed what was a thrilling game. When I turn on any sports show, the fight is the highlight that is predominantly shown. Not much/any of the game action. And that is truly sad.
Where can I find a 2008 final four shirt to buy?
BYU was very chippy , late hitting when we played them. Some were actually saying that they play dirty. I thought so. Sad for a religious school.
Is that because of the way mendenhall coaches? Glad we didn't have to spend a week with that team.
I cannot ever imagine chest thumping over a share of an AAC title or a Miami Beach Bowl win. Add in the embarrassing fight and it's just impossible to understand this guy's mindset.
Tought words from a fan of the worst team in the league.
When we win the AAC, I'll be thrilled.
I know, right! It was freaking awesome!!!
10-3...AAC Champs...Miami Beach Bowl Champs...Post-Game Fight Champs!!! (click link below for clip)
There is a distinct difference between being happy about winning the league and going over to some other team's board to thump your chest after the team embarrassed your school. I know that you enjoy going to other team's boards but I'm not that lonely.
That's the kind of unsportsmanlike attitude that helped keep us out of the ACC . .
The same kinds of things can be said about Army and Navy football. you better watch your legs when you're playing the academies, because they're coming for them on offense and defense. I'ts not dirty football, but it's dangerous football, and players get hurt. As independants, they don't have conference rules committee's to deal with.
My memory may not be entirely clear; but, I seem to recall the game UConn played at army (and won) in the early 200's when an Army player swung way around the pack on a kick-off and blew-up UConn's kicker behind after the play was over while the kicker was jogging to the sidelines. No penalty though as no one saw it except for the folks in the end zone where I was sitting.
