They can't be avoided. There you are pulling up an ESPN article, you want to see what people are saying. You know you shouldn't, but you can't help yourself. You click on the "5000+" comments and you know what is coming: pure irrational hatred. Borne of jealousy. All because their team isn't in the position that GU is in.
It doesn't matter who you've played and beaten. It doesn't matter if the only teams that beat you also beat Indiana. All that matters you aren't in a BCS conference. "If GU were in the BIG, they would have 15 loses" Just complete hatred from a gaggle of morons.
Facts don't matter. Somehow all that matters is that you lost as a #2 seed in 2004. Not to a #15 like the almighty Duke, or Mizzou. No you have had the audacity to lose, four times in 15 years, to teams in the NCAA tournament who had worse seeds than you. What gall!
Your rational side knows they have nothing better do do in their lives. They have to hate. They don't use logic. Nonetheless, it gnaws at you.
So here I sit, Friday afternoon, unable to work because I'm filled with anger. The haters are winning. I only remind myself, haters gonna hate.
