  • ANGELO @ WTAMU GAME THREAD

    Well......been waiting for this game....as I do each year. Great rivalry!!!! You can feel it in the air.

    Last year these two teams split games 1-1. Not much has changed. Angelo lost two key players since then. Not sure what WTAMU lost.

    I am expecting a real slobber-knocker. I don't care what either team has done thus far, because when these two meet, it can go either way.

    After last week's boring azz games, I am excited for a REAL knock down drag out!

    This is a joke - right?

    ASU by 21

    After Saturday, Wt can turn its attention to Basketball and FootBall will still be the least successful team on campus.

      No, not a joke at all. Am I delusional??

      But let me say this. Many, not all, WT fans SUCK. They only show loyalty IF their team wins. I would rather not have fans, if they are like that. Acting like entitled, spoiled azz brats. Gat [email protected]

      So go start your BB, VB, SB threads. Why even bother being on D2 FOOTBALL messageboard???

      I am so glad I am a DIE HARD fan of ALL MY sports teams, amateur & pro, WIN, LOSE, OR DRAW.

      GEEZ!!!

        Say what you want, but I’m not going to support a losing program. Especially at WT, where almost every other sport is winning. WT has dropped the ball on football, to be nice. F your win, lose or draw.

            Don't get me wrong, I'll be there pulling for the team. I have season tickets for ALL sports. The constant disappointment of Football is hard to take. Other
            sports are competitive, why not football?? It's not like Wt doesn't have the resources. When you have a program that's been putting a team on the field for over
            100 years being at or below .500 is not acceptable. Many times I vent my disappointment on this message board simply because it's easy to do.

              I don’t think I’ve ever written this, but… I 100% agree with Pops. The dark times are when the biggest fans show up. Fair weather fans are fine and necessary, but suffering through bad seasons is part of the process.

              Lion football B.C. was bad. I remember sitting in the rain at the Cotton Bowl against ranked ACU with a 1 or 2 win Lion team. Lions went to overtime and promptly lost on a pick 6. I was around for the newspaper scandal billed as the best team building exercise on a then winless team. In 2013 (I think) the Lions were down in the LSC Championship by 23 to Angelo with a playoff bid on the line. Lions came back to score a TD with seconds to spare down 8; there was maybe 10 people in the stands due to sleet, and the Lions could not convert the 2 point conversion. The next year TAMUC made playoffs and played in a blizzard (a real one) at Ferris State. The halftime lead went away real quick as the 50 of us in attendance suffered in that cold.

              But I was also in KC for every festivity including the Lions National Championship. The suck is worth it.

                  100%. Losing shows the true character of not just players but of fans as well. Been through plenty of really bad teams in my time of my dad being at Fresno State, Air Force, and finally CSU Pueblo. It made that 2014 season that much sweeter for him and the entire family.

                    Let me be clear. I’ve been going to Buff football games since the early 70’s. Good years and bad years. But when the school has the resources WT has, fans have a right to voice their displeasure with the year to year mediocrity of the football program, when so many of the other sports at WT are successful. It sounds great to say one supports the team win, lose, or draw (and for 45 years I have), but at some point there should be accountability for poor results. The history of WT football reveals a lot. The top two winningest coaches were both fired and replaced by disappointing hires. Dropped D1 for D2, then eliminated the program entirely for a year, resumed without scholarships, finally made it back to the LSC. We now see many LSC schools bolting for D1 while we schedule NAIA teams and perform poorly on the field. It is frustrating. Why does the university have such a difficult time maintaining a successful football program, given their resources and overall success with the vast majority of their other athletic programs?

                      Problem with that statement is that WT still dominates the LSC message board win, lose, or draw. I will still watch WT, UT, Dallas Cowboys, and hell even my high school alma mater when they are crappy. To me its not being a fair weather fan if you express disappointment in the team.

                      To their credit there are a good number of Kingsville posters still on here and their program has been in the dumps for years.

                        Oh, I agree. It's the 2-4 weeks into football season and those fans jump ship and only talk about their winning women's sports. HOWEVER, if WT football is winning, those SAME few talk so much sh!t on the board. Do you want to be in a fox hole with that kind of person? Me neither.

                        Listen, I am a life long (from the age of 5) Dallas Cowboys fan I KNOW what it's like to have a team NOT win. It's tough knowing we are the RICHEST and most popular sports organization in THE WORLD and can't get a Ship in 26 YEARS. But EVERY season; EVERY game day, I am there....full blown like we are the champions..WIN, LOSE, or DRAW I am there with FULL support. Even in a 0-16 season, I am THERE. And I talk Cowboys 24/7 365.

                        I too am like that with other teams I support.

                        Maybe it's the Marine in me. Semper Fi, Do or Die.

                          Maybe I am! Because, I truly believe WT is showing up and could very well win this one. If that belief is delusional, then so be it.

                            One other point about loyal fans......I will NEVER FORGET when LionFan was the ONLY consistent TAMUC poster on this board. And I am talking when TAMUC was the whipping post for [email protected] near every team. He was beat up and bullied....but took every bit of it. His loyalty is/was impressive. And although back in the day I was an azz to him, I ALWAYS respected him. I must admit, that I was so [email protected] happy for him when TAMUC finally won a Ship.

                              I can meet you half way on this. WT will show up.
