I HATE to do this, but it needs to be said...

Cane Broome is the biggest head case on earth. Just stfu and play basketball. So tired of hearing about him being frustrated, unhappy, mishandled, etc. Quit bitching. Play basketball. Every week it's something new with this dude.

Yeah Jacob is gone and won't be coming back. I had some conversations with him and he thought some of the arguments were getting silly and he couldn't do it anymore.


he was always super passionate and i think that got him in the end.
Pretty funny to throw that big of a fit over a message board though. I mean he did give me a lifetime ban for disagreeing with him once so i canít say Iím sad

The Nevada loss killed a lot of Bearcats souls.



It didn't kill mine, however I did stop taking basketball nearly as serious as I did.

When UC lost, it would ruin my weekend. I'd borderline be a bad husband and father just because a team I cheer for lost.


It was ridiculous.


I've since dialed it way back.


People watch sports for fun, for it to be a break from every day life and shit that actually matters. I've already told myself that if being a fan is no longer fun and that if I get more emotion from losing then I do winning, then its time to cancel the season tickets and find another hobby.

That also said, I personally find it more entertaining to have online message board fights with people who cheer for our opponents rather than fight with my own fan base. I've spent a lot of time on an AAC board. The shit talking there is elite.


At least Jacob didn't lose his fandom, instead just his desire to talk sports on a message board

Couldn't agree more. Ya have to take a step back sometimes and not treat being a fan as life or death. It's cool to enjoy it, be passionate and get into it but if they lose a game still be able to move on from it. It too would ruin my day and affect others around me. Also I would feel as if Id get it arguments with friends if there were any negative comments about UC being that some of them are more casual fans and I was too biased. It just wasn't worth it anymore. Just trying to enjoy it the best I can, be a great fan but don't let it become a negative thing in my life. I'm still working on it honestly.

It's nice to come on here and talk basketball and if some of the conversations gets too serious then oh well just need to be able to take a step back and take a break if that happens.

I do love UC basketball and the shape it's in. Scheduling has gotten fun, I do wish we could see an uptick in recruiting and I do wish we could go on a little run come March. But I must say, nothing is worse (personally as a college basketball fan) than not seeing your name on the bracket during selection Sunday and even if it's been a lot of first weekend exits, at least we are in the tourney every year. This is just my opinion.

If it took the Nevada loss to kill your soul you weren't around for the late 90's/early 2000's. Jerrod West and Jason Kapono killed my soul a long time ago but Ive since built a callus and cheer on UC with a great appreciation of the program as a whole.
