The Sidewalker Menace
You can typically tell a graduate by their cool demeanor, unwavering loyalty, and the respect that they have for others, all of these borne from the security they have in their person, as a graduate. Then there’s the other type of “fan”. Let’s take a moment to address this plague that affects all of our schools.

That embarrassing fan who makes an arse of himself in public while proudly brandishing your school’s hat and t-shirt he bought from Wally World but couldn’t find his way around campus if he ever wandered on to its grounds.

That drunkard who verbally accosts and harasses visiting fans of opposing teams at tailgate in your alma mater’s name.

The idiot who trolls incessitently on the Rant despite never having spent a semester at your school.

We all have them, even Vandy, do you think the Whistlers actually went there?

No.

Let’s unite to face this common foe by naming and shaming them.

I’ll start; CNB.

Also, a warning in advance, if this thread triggers you then you’re a confirmed sidewalker.

Oh please, some of the worst fans are alumni of the actual school.

re: The Sidewalker Menace
I have three alma maters (sp?). AU, Utah, UF.

I've never had a bad experience attending games at opposing schools. Not once. I often question whether all these visiting fans stories are made-up or exaggerated. This is a sample size of one (me) so certainly not statistically significant. Carry on.

(edit) Sidewalk fans, a small portion of them, absolutely suck.

I joke about the smell at Auburn, but honestly when I attended games at JHS, they were always friendly. The one game I got to go to LSU, everyone I met was hospitable. Saw lots of opposing fans tailgating with Bama fans at BDS.

Problem is that "everyone was nice and friendly" rarely gets repeated or views. Everyone and their grandmother will upvote the "All fans of (insert school here) are terrible because I got hit in the head after doing (insert random event here) 75 miles from their campus!!"

re: The Sidewalker Menace
Worst visiting fan experience I EVER HAD was at a Ute game. When I told them I wasn’t Mormon they slashed the tires on my Chevy S-10 and tried to give me wedgies while shouting “Normal Underwear! This man wears Normal Underwear!”

They then stomped on my chewing tobacco and threw my coffee in my face. Also coudn’t find anywhere in Utah to buy a beer.

0/10 trip.

Would not recommend.

I have LSU alumni in my family. I went to a game Alabama game in Baton Rouge with some of my family and their friends. It was a night game, and Alabama won. On the way back to the car, I over heard an argument about me. They were refusing to allow me back in the car. So it happens......

LSU is the flagship school of Louisiana. It belongs to the whole state. Not just alumni.

Ute games are very SEC-like IMO. A rowdy good time. Something like 75 consecutive sell-outs, and a stadium expansion on the way. It doesn't suck that I can walk to our tailgate and Rice-Eccles from my house either!

re: The Sidewalker Menace
Please we Gamecock fans have IBG who constantly brags that he isn't a sidewalk fan. I guess with no other accomplishments you have to hang on to something.

I know sidewalk fans that have done more for our school than graduates have.

All I care about is y'all paying your student loans off.

That's just unbelieveable to me. I don't mean I don't believe you, but that other adults would act this way is the unbelievable part.

AU is a top 10-15 program. We average roughly 8 wins per season, better than most programs. We'll lose 60%-65% of the time to Alabama, and 50% of the time to UGA. I like burbon at football games and eyeing all the fine-ass women. SEC! And PAC-12!

Probably that the notion people get their personality traits based on if they went to a school or not is pretty absurd.

People do that with military people too, as if they are all a like. In reality, it's just a mixture of regular people.

re: The Sidewalker Menace
I'm a Sidewalker, frick you very much. Proud of it. Now let me get your arrogant arse set straight.

Do you know what happens if we all disappeared overnight like it appears you would like? Your sports programs go away. Those hats and t shirts many of us buy bring in a hell of a lot of dollars. Without us, those big TV dollars also vanish. Poof, bitch.

Do you really think all the stadiums fill up every Saturday? Many of you can make that claim, but they won't. NCAA Football quickly becomes Club Football, which it sounds like what you want.

I love to see the tailgaters, the Alums having a great time, it's their school, hell they deserve it. But we like to enjoy it too. People like you want to frick it up.

Which is why USCe Football sucks today tomorrow and likely forevermore.

By the way, I don't drink.

I hate people that think because they went to a school it makes them a better fan.

I was in the Navy and military personnel are better than non military!!!
