    Is This When I Generalize About UW Fans?

    We saw a lot of people , including some on BGP, make sweeping generalizations about UK fans after online comments were made about a UC player.

    Should I make similar conclusions about tbe majority of Badger fans?

    Wisconsin fans hurl insults at Maryland recruit Diamond Stone - The Washington Post
    Every single fanbase has people like that. I never understood why UK fans always get pointed out. Simply look at the things UL fans on here and Twitter said about UK and UK fans when talking about Harrell or the same about UC fans toward UK and UK fans.

    Its ts entertaining when fanbases talk about how classless BBN is yet they in the very same post when talking about how bad BBN is are actually doing what they get on BBN for.

    WI has classless fans just as much as anyone else's fanbase does.

    The same "one-and-done" Diamond Stone that UW recruited hard.

    Agree on everybody having idiot fans. UK has more idiot fans because they have more fans, pure and simple. 18 percent of a million is a lot more than 18 percent of a thousand.

    The concept of cheering for your own team is becoming less and less existent.

    People are not at their best on the internet. Sad truth.

    The very argument I always make. Made it today to a coworker in fact.

    The number of times I've been sitting at Cardinal Stadium during a football game and thought "I can't believe I'm cheering for the same team as that dude" is startling.

    To paraphrase George Carlin: sports fans are like any other large group of people; a few winners... a whole lot of losers.

    I'm not hung up on ACT scores as much as others. ACT tests can be really tough on kids who are dyslexic or simply not fast readers. Those kids may be among the smartest in their class but bomb on timed tests like the ACT. I personally know someone who got a 17 on her ACT the first time she took it and it was because she didn't have time to finish a couple sections in time. She was on the Deans list every semester in college and graduated near the top of her class and is a astro physicist.

    ACT scores don't bother me at all.
