Colorado is making fun of us

The thing is, we've been to the NCAAs a lot more than they have recently, and won a lot more games. They've never really been a successful basketball program. Who do they think they are, Kansas? We need to go to Boulder and shut their Rocky Mountain pieholes.

Take it easy WG! The first sentence says this is satire. Take it for what it is...a joke and have a couple of laughs.

I won''t laugh because I don't think it's funny. But I can accept that it was a joke, or at least an attempt at one. The thing that bothers me is the fact that they would produce this satire means that they probably don't really take us seriously. I want our program to be one that other teams are scared of. I want people to say "uh oh" when they see Wofford on their schedule, not produce "comedy" about us. I bet they'd never do this for Davidson.

Eh, Davidson has been to the Elite 8 and we haven't won a tourney game yet, let alone several, so I'm not too surprised at the admittedly satirical response. We're a small school with an unusual mascot in a city most people haven't heard of- it kinda lends itself to jokes like this. As our team develops and if we can become a consistent mid-major power, the jokes will go away and the respect for our program will grow. I think the opening of our new stadium will give our program that much more credibility in the eyes of the media, opposing fans and, most importantly, future recruits.

Run of the mill satire. Nothing special. I would have expected better from a school with a mascot named Ralphie. You'll shoot your eye out...

Eric Garcia, from Aurora in Colorado, figured prominently in this satire. Perhaps the Buffaloes are angry that they missed on him and he's ended up having a great career for us.

Tickets should be easy to come by. Will anyone even be at that game or too busy smoking weed and eating Doritos?
