They were the absolute worst fans I have ever experienced...

...and I am not talking about being loud or obnoxious at the stadium. I like to walk around pre-game, and visit with opposing fans. I have done so in college park, blacksburg, chapel hill, and at many bowl games. I have found the vast majority of opposing fans to be friendly and cool, and there is always some good natured back-and-forth. The WVU fans at the CTB were a bizarre combination of over-the-top ugly taunts, physical threats, and blinding stupidity, mixed with a whiny, everyone-is-mean-to-us, victimhood fixation that I had never seen before, and hope to never experience again. I remember standing in line for the men's room at halftime, and watching some very large and very angry WVU fans walking up and down the line, trying to pick a fight with anyone wearing UVA gear, including some elderly guys. An old WVU fan in front of me was shaking his head, and said something like 'this is why people hate us.' I just nodded and said 'yeah.'
