    Mountaineer fans make Jeff Orr look good

    After the Harris haymaker I was pointed to this article about the student section there -

    Re: Mountaineer fans look Jeff Orr look good

    They're definitely not the only school that does something like that. I don't think there's necessarily anything wrong with it, other than the fact it's got to be embarrassing that your fans are so inept they have to be told how and when to cheer.

    Duke does this as well.

    Step 1 in Loss: Go after student section sportsmanship, general campus appearance and regional denigration.

    Re: Mountaineer fans make Jeff Orr look good

    This does explain why DK was booed from the very start of the game.

    Re: Mountaineer fans make Jeff Orr look good

    I said this in another thread, but their fans don't cheer for their team. They just harass the other team. If you watched our game and the KSU vs KU game, it shows what a crowd should be like.

    Re: Mountaineer fans make Jeff Orr look good

    to compare this with Jeff Orr is ridiculous. I have a hard time picturing what makes Jeff Orr look good right now.

    A lot of schools publish sheets for the student section and I don't see anything wrong with what WVU did here with the possible exception of including Twitter addresses as that really doesn't pertain to the game itself.

    Re: Mountaineer fans make Jeff Orr look good

    Watching the game on TV last night I told my friend it remind me of an old WWF wresting arena. I was wondering when Bulldog Bob Brown or Hacksaw Jim Duggan were going to make an appearance!

    Re: Mountaineer fans make Jeff Orr look good

    Sure seemed like their crowd got under our guys' skin. Too many guys trying to do way too much last night. Kane looked like they definitely got to him


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Mountaineer fans make Jeff Orr look good

    I hate that article from the Daily. Acts as if we are all high horse about everything, when in fact we have already chanted things like "F McGary" this year... Give me a break.

    Just so you know, I have no problem with WV doing what they did, and I didn't have any problem with the F McGary chant. Calling them out on it seems hypocritical and childish. "Wahh wahhh we lost!"

    Re: Mountaineer fans make Jeff Orr look good

    The school obviously encourages their crowd to verbally attack college kids. It's no wonder their player followed it up with a punch to Monte's face at the end of the game.

    They pick one player a game to boo during a game. Kane was their target. This is the new way of communistic sportsmanship spreading in this country where all work together as one.
