Just watched Texas Tech defeat Washington and, like the Wisconsin/Duke game last night, the students stormed the floor. This practice, encouraged by Dickie V until the crowd ran him over one night, is dangerous and should absolutely be stopped immediately. The players get engulfed by the mob and could be injured. An opposing player who might have invoked the anger of the fans could be assaulted. It smacks of the out of control soccer fans who riot in the stands in third world countries. Nip it, nip in the bud!!! Adolph Rupp would have had anyone who stepped on his court publicly flogged.
My hat is off to Pat Knight. Near the end of the Texas Tech upset, the crowd started chanting "overrated". He screamed at them to stop. It is the most stupid of all cheers. While it may demean the opponent, it absolutely diminishes the accomplishment of your own team. Cheer underrated instead.
My last pet peeve is people who feel compelled to post their pet peeves! Excuse me now, I have to go get a life.
