I have lived in Louisville for 15 years now, and it disgusts me that such a nice city has soo many awful kentucky fans! We all know how obnoxious, arrogant and ego-centric they are, but why do they hate us? I know they have more bb championships and wins than we do, but its not like we are a threat to dismantle their whole program! Maybe some of our fans are obnoxious too, but I haven't met one single person who has a bigger head than ky fans.
Also on another note, if uk represents the state of ky....shouldn't it be the same for UL to represent the whole city? Why does the city open its doors up for uk fans? I go to bars or restaurants and the ky game is on; I go to the mall and theres ky t-shirts for sale in the main atrium; I drive down bardstown rd deep into the highlands and theres ky flags in peoples yards; I drive on the Watterson towards Freedom Hall and theres ky billboards! WHAT IS WRONG HERE???? It only makes sense if you live in Louisville then you should support the home team. I feel its a smack in the face for UL fans not to mention UL students all around the city who have to see ky crap! Some people argue that there are UL fans in Lexington....not nearly as much as there are uk fans here. Also, some people argue that uk represents all of the state and there fore including the city of Louisville. Does anybody else know of any other city or college town that has a great number of fans supporting a rival team within the confines of that city or town? I mean I have lived in Richmond where we get local Lexington channels, and not once did they ever mention UL or show a UL game for that matter!
I wonder what it would take to completely rid the city of ky fans....hopefully that day comes soon!
