Okay - I need to vent, and this seems like a good place to do so. There is this guy I know who is a Creighton fan (and since my HuskerMax account does not hide me behind a cloak of anonymity, I'm going to avoid being too specific about who this fan is and how I know him), who is typically a good person that I really like, and have liked for as long as I've known him. This particular Jay fan is (rightfully) enjoying being apart of another good season of CU hoops. Good for him and good for CU - Altman build a good program, they have a good coach in McDermott, and little McDermott is a heckuva player.
The thing that is annoying me is a Facebook comment this particular Jay fan made in celebration of CU's win tonight: "Nebraskan by birth...Bluejay by choice."
Statements like that drive me up a wall - especially when the people who make them "choose" to be something other than Bluejays during the fall. I have a real distaste for the "diehard" Creighton basketball (and/or baseball) fans who spend August through January rooting for the Huskers. Be the biggest and bluest Creighton fan you want to be, but when you back the Big Red during football season, you come across to me like a person who cherry-picks their teams based upon their success which is weak and annoying. I'd rather suffer through another 15 years of horrible Nebraska basketball than be the type of fan whose loyalties are based upon convenience and success.
And yes, I would still feel this way if Nebraska were 20-8, and a lock for the NCAAs.
