Perspective from a 20-year N.C. resident

I can't tell you how much this win means to me personally.

I know you will all pooh pooh the following statement, but I know it to be true with all my heart: Carolina basketball fans are THE most obnoxious fans in all of college sports.

I can't stand the Gators because I'm a Nole. And yes, the have their own special brand of obnoxiousness.

But I moved here right out of college and for the last 20 years have developed a disdain for these people that rivals my dislike for the Gators and Canes.

And this hasn't happened because they are my favorite team's rival. It's because they are SO obnoxious and arrogant and stuck up that I have gravitated towards hatred despite myself.

The hilarious thing is that so many people walk around with that awful baby blue garb on that have never even SET FOOT on the campus itself. Many of them don't own a HIGH SCHOOL diploma, yet they live and die with the school's basketball fortunes as if they were the coach's wife.

So, for the past hour, here in a small town just outside Shelby, my kids and their FSU convert friends have been out on a street corner, waving our FSU fans, doing the chop and screaming the war chant at the top of their lungs.

The N.C. State/Duke/Clemson/Wake fans who have been driving by have been honking and smiling and waving.

The Carolina fans don't make eye contact.

It's not my style to talk trash. But today ...

They can suck it!
