If you read my post, I said I was embarrassed at both fanbases for posting like that on another teams site that has nothing to do with our rivalry. And as far as RR is legit? Andrew Sr or nobody else down there have no clue who this guy is that claims to have all this knowledge and they flat out say anybody claiming they set up anything for them on the VT visit besides the coaches is a "LIAR"!!

WAHOO 4 LIFE!!
Idiots can have a great 4th too. Am i right?
LOL we actually won that game.
Says another random 247 poster that may be lying as well. Who knows who is telling the truth? Its all games on here. You say you talked with Andrew Sr. Did you? Or did you hear it from another guy who knows another guy? You see that a lot on your board. Guys that claim to be guru's but are 3 persons removed from the info.
So far this is what we know.........roadrunner made claims that turned out to be totally wrong. VT has another poster caught red handed trying to influence Nnadi. He has not been heard from since. Of course UVA has that dumbass tugard, but, Jamie has banned him from posting.
RoadRunner? LOL. That is all.
Were you lying when you said, "Jamie Oakes said Stroman was a silent commit"?
Damn Ahmad, hitting your teammate with a beer bottle. Not a good week for former UVA players.
JO never said Stroman was a silent commit. He never said anything to that effect. I think Stroman is a UVA lean and the sooner he decides, the better it is for UVA.
Serious question for my Hoo friends:
Does it bother you at all how demeaning and condescending a great sector of your fanbase is with respect to the culture and livelihoods of people that make their way as farmers, agriculturalists etc? I'm not a farmer, not an agriculturalist, etc, and I don't work in a field that's anywhere remotely related to it, so I don't take it personally, but I do have friends and family that do both. I've spent a day or two around farms, and I like to hunt and fish as much as the next guy who's testicles have dropped, but I'm also educated; my wife and I each holding both undergraduate and advance degrees from Virginia Tech. I enjoy many of the finer things in life as well, which is neither here nor there; it's just some background on me.
It's just that I have great respect for those people and not a day goes by that I don't see a post on one of your boards with attempted insults toward Virginia Tech by calling us "cattle herders" or "goat farmers" or making fun of the agricultural history of the school. Are those types of UVA fans so damn stupid that they don't realize they are also insulting MANY of their own?
I'm not looking for sympathy, pity, or even tolerance from UVa fans, just acknowledgement that the same words your fans use to describe VT fans are also insulting MANY members of your own fan base. And that makes me wonder why anyone from a blue collar background, that's a graduate of the UVa would tolerate those remarks, and why ANY person that's from a blue collar background and NOT a graduate of UVa would want to be a part of a fanbase that doesn't respect them and goes out of it's way to demean and degrade them.

One thing is for sure, if society in general ever breaks down, those farmers and agriculturalists will have it made. Couple that with VT's acumen for bass fishing and VT grads will never run out of food.
If any of us talk about UVA or JO the way Hogan talks about VT and the Scoop admins, we all would be banned..

As someone that doesn't fit the "norm" of a UVA fan, I've learned just to ignore it. I don't come from money and most of my family is rural. I don't really fit the dress of the stereotypical UVA fan. I don't wear Polos or anything like that. I've gotten some dirty looks from my fellow UVA fans at games before. I just don't bother myself with it. Negativity is everywhere. I just ignore the assholes and go on with my life. I don't think it's worth the effort to try and change someone's opinion when they have an agenda. Those UVA fans that might give me a dirty look have an agenda in their mind. They see the world a certain way and I couldn't care less about them.
UVA fans aren't any worse than other fans. I've been called fag, queer, sissy, etc by many VT fans. You just have to ignore the idiots. It doesn't matter what fanbase you talk about they are there. In my experience, the typical UVA fan isn't the rich douchebag that most people think of. We do have those and they tend to be the more outspoken but they don't necessarily represent the entire UVA fanbase.
Edit: And to add on to what I said. I'm not into the childish name calling and mud slinging that goes on at either board. It's quite stupid if you ask me. I don't understand why a bunch of grown ass men decide to personally attack others over a game that is played by young kids in college. At the end of the day, we are all humans and this is just a game. I don't take anything personally and I wish we would all keep in mind that this is supposed to be about fun.

I think it's probably just taking a characteristic of a rival and using it as an insult.
I'm sure there are snobs in every fanbase who actually do look down on blue collar workers, but in terms of doing it on sports message boards/at football games, I think it's more just "anti-VT" than an actual bias against agriculture.
I mean, look at similar classist jokes made by your fan base. Do all hokie fans actually hate wine? Do they actually think what someone wears to a football game matters? Are they as prejudiced towards homosexuals that the recycled 216 jokes are meant to actually say "All of you are gay, and that's a lower class of person."
Well, maybe they do. I don't know. But any of that would be just as ridiculous to me as actually belittling farmers.
I fucking love wine. Your Bottle is in the mail BTW..
Damn cream puff.
geography of wine taught by Boyer is an awesome class...........
worked in the industry for years through college and after.
looking forward to a toast to Andrew Brown and internet football rivalries
I was in one of the first cohorts of that class when it was around 35 students. It was a hoot. Now it's grown to like 600 or something.
These were a few of the things he made clear on day 1.
We will drink wine in this class.
We will not spit out the wine.
If you wish to spit out your wine, take the "Wines & Vines" class across campus.
I will not be asking if you're 21, I'm assuming you all are.
The #1 wine in the world is the one you like.
He literally de-snobbed wine for me and taught us a great deal in the process. His methods drive some people crazy, but they are effective. We rarely had a spare seat in the room - ie. nobody ever skipped class.

Never took a wine class at UVA, but that class you took at VT sounded like it was a lot of fun. I'm not a wine fan myself I'd much rather have a stiff mixed drink but to each his own, I know a lot of people that love wine including my mom and dad that claim different wines for different types of foods will enhance the meal.
Hello, Virginia and Virginia Tech fans. I'm a bored Michigan fan. So ask me some questions. If you want to know how we perceive things or things about Michigan in general, fire away! And if you don't wanna do that in the UVA-VT thread, feel free to tell me to drop it.
