Another astoundingly delusional thread that is a perfect example of why their fanbase is the most obnoxious & clueless of all time. Enjoy...
Yeh, I am so jealous of them, even though I have never lived in Louisville and live in a UK stronghold , when it comes to fans, yet continue to be a life long Louisville fan. There are reasons I hate UK that have nothing to do with championships. The fact is a huge majority of their fan base is so obnoxious when it comes to sports on top of the fact that they are huge cheaters. It is not jealousy, it is disgust, plain pure and simple. If we were that jealous, why not just switch over to be a sUcK fan? I could never , with a clear conscience, support those cheats or be a part of that obnoxious bunch of fans.
I LOVE when they post that, which happens often; it means FEAR with them. They always post arrogance like that when they are psychologically trying to convince themselves we aren't to be feared..........when that's exactly what is enveloping their moronic little brains. Stupid fools never can realize their own words/thoughts betray them. LOL
They are fearful of the fact that we are poised to beat them in both major sports this year AND possibly win the 2013 title.
Plus we don't have to cheat to do it, not that cheating ever bothered them.
Our fan base could exist and function normally without Louisville basketball. Their fanbase would die of starvation from a lack of Kentucky basketball. It's all a majority of them live for.
At Target some time last year I saw a family (mother, father, son) dressed head to toe in all UK gear and leave in a truck with UK flags on both sides and a UK sticker on the door. I'm willing to bet they don't own anything else in their wardrobe.

I gotta call false on your first remark.
UofL Basketball is a top 10 program with top 3 facilities and top 3 fanbase.
I saw the thread you are referencing.
Yep, our fanbase pretty much is second to none with regard to delusion and obnoxiousness.
You guys do realize they are all referring to one sport...baseball umm I think we raped twice? Football...we won last year right? Soccer...uhh well we weren't #1 for nothing...track...bitch please...swimming...we had Olympians, did they? We could go on, but yeh were really jealous because we lost in one of the many sports our school has to offer, damnit why am I a u of l fan again???
And I will take being one of the 4th best teams in the country all day everyday...yeh I am proud to a fan, no jealousy here, just pity, and btw, we lost to the NCAA baseball champs, I don't think they did
Not me they're speaking of. I really couldn't care less about those slap dicks over in little old Lessington. No life losers.
i'll never understand their desperate need to think people are "jealous" of them or their basketball program. they seem to think that everyone either loves uk above all else, or is jealous of them. in their minds, every person on this earth does nothing but think about uk in one way or the other.
simply put, their brains function in a way that i cannot comprehend. and i'm glad.
"He was a cruel man, but fair."
Sorry Cedar but that's the way I see it. I have a Facebook friend (who I love dearly she's a sweetheart) but she said "I couldn't survive without UK basketball, then said it's not just sports it's a way of life and without it I would be depressed" And she's not one of the extreme examples. For a majority of sports fan their team is their life.
Yes we are a top 10 programs but I don't see a wide majority of our fans who live vicariously through their team.
you took the words right out of my mouth
Yup, I am jealous. I am jealous of their racist history, their cheating ways, their sub-par football, their virtually non-existent other sports like track and field, swimming, volleyball, etc. I am also jealous of their arena with the bleacher seating, not being able to rush the field after a loss and because their AD is head & shoulders above Tom.
Yup, i am jealous of all that.
The difference between U of L fans and UK fans: U of L fans have lives.
We don't sit here and worry about who won what in 1950 to figure out something to brag about before we were even born. We respect history, but don't relish in it (or in UK's case, make T-shirts about it.)
We watch sports for the thrill of the game, and offseason is a time to get excited for the next season, but at the same time - enjoy life and have other sports to root for, be it pro, baseball, MMA, whatever. In UK fan land "offseason" is key word for "season of stalking recruits on Twitter."
They're hopelessly oblivious as to why every other fanbase in the country thinks they're a joke, and "The Cats Pause imploding" has become a college message board meme of their insanity. This is another good example of it.
I genuinely don't care about UK, but I do find it comical when I hear the city of Louisville bashing. Apparently this place is like hell compared to the meth-trailer riddled waste that is the rest of the state.
I had friends that went to UK that bashed the city of Louisville constantly. "Louisville is the ghetto." "Louisville sucks." Comically, a large majority of them moved to Louisville after graduating from UK because, surprise, Louisville has this thing called "JOBS." There's these entities called "COMPANIES" in Louisville that pay educated people to show up and provide work product. Just can't find those "JOBS" anywhere else in the beautiful meth-lands...
Now, those same people live in the highlands and drive their cars with 'Keep Louisville Weird' bumper stickers on them up to the locally owned bar/restuarant on bardstown road to have a good, reasonably priced meal and drink a local microbrew.
"...meth-trailer riddled waste that is the rest of the state."
You obviously don't know a whole lot about the rest of the state, do you?
(Louisville is an awesome city)
I became a UofL fan because I grew up in the 70's and 80's and even at that age I was able to appreciate what Crum and the program accomplished in spite of the fact that they were operating in a state that was OPENLY hostile to the program. My father always said that uk's antagonistic and condescending approach to UofL would harm both, and he was correct, the center of college basketball shifted to tobacco road at a critical time when espn was coming into prominence. I cheer for UofL because I live and work in Louisville, the University is the University of the city that funds this state. It is also the older institution, the only reason uk exists is because the good ole boys didn't like the fact that the states premiere university was in the city that they all despised because it was wealthy and modern and they were poor and backwards.

Jealous of what exactly??? If nobody respects your program then what is the point? Everybody who is not a UK fan is well aware of how they operate. Just look at all the coaches polls being released by CBS that have to do with cheating. Coaches are aware and opposing fans are aware. UK fans are such losers that the main thing they're happy about is having a few new t-shirts to wear. It's like a drug dealer proud of being rich even if it is blood money.
I for one am jealous of the typical UK fan's ability to eloquently turn a phrase:
"uk has the players that makes the pros"
This guy is one of the dumbest UK fans to ever grace the smack board. Good to see he hasn't changed a bit:

They just wanna be different. They probably grew up around so many UK fans that they decided to root for the other team
just to piss the UK fans off, because they got tired of listening to all things UK all of the time. It's like people in LA rooting
for the Clippers instead of the Lakers. Hell a good majority of UL fans in Louisville aren't even from Louisville or KY. They're
transplants from other states, who found jobs in Louisville and decided to root for the home team.
And how many UK fans have any connection to that school?
Sadly, yes I do know quite a bit about the rest of the state. Grew up in the "rest of the state." Lived in western kentucky and eastern kentucky. Sorry I forgot to mention the pill mills, supplemental security income, and occasionally functioning coal mines. Sure, there are some cities that aren't total waste lands, but have you ever been to eastern kentucky?
Born in Pikeville and raised in Elkhorn City, Ky which is 6 miles from the Virginia line. Mother draws retirement from UMWA after 20 years working underground.
Pill mills and SSI is all over the state which I am assuming you are aware since you have lived all over the state.
Heck, I can leave my home (E-Town) and be on Dixie in 10 minutes and show you places between here and Louisville that rival any areas in this state with regard to what I assume you mean by "waste lands".
I am assuming you are aware seeing as you know so much about the state. Pardon me for misunderstanding you because I thought you meant poverty, pill mills and SSI only occured in other places.
I suppose I could cover this in depth but a simple 'screw em' seems adequate to me.
Right! It's so freakin weird that they always try to turn our smack around on us, when it clearly doesn't apply. I don't know a single "transplant" UofL fan, they all either went to the school, or live in this city. The logic doesn't even work, did a bunch of transplants buoy the university to one of the most profitable athletic programs? So stupid.
Poverty does occur in Louisville, I'm not denying that. But the poverty rate in many other parts of the state are ridiculous. I was merely commenting on the irony of calling Louisville the ghetto or saying that it is a hell-hole of epic proportions.
This quote, for example from the posting by a UK fan: "Anyone who as been to the ghetto called Louisville would know the answer. Those people have nothing to live for without the jealousy."
Really? The ghetto of Louisville? Where else in the state is better is the point I am trying to make. Sure, Lexington isn't a meth-trailer littered wasteland, but if Louisville is the ghetto, what does that make the rest of the state? If Louisville is the ghetto, is not the rest of the state a meth-trailer riddled waste-land?
I lived in McCreary County, let's just say it helped form my opinions on UK fans bashing the city of Louisville as the ghetto while living in a shack on the side of a hill collecting SSI and going into the daniel boone national forest to cook meth.
