Anyway, Tyler's tone echoes most everyone that I know of and have talked to on this subject. I go to as many away games as I am able to. I learned many things about my mother walking out of Williams-Brice a couple months ago. Although I still don't believe those things to be true, I wasn't surprised that a close, emotional game that followed an extra hour or so of USCjr students
It pissed me off, almost as much as the game itself did. But I eventually got over it.
Like Tyler, and hopefully many of you reading this, what I will never get over is seeing my fellow Dawg fans treat an opposing fan rudely. Yes, I'm aware that I just said I expect opposing fans to do and say such things to me when I'm in their stadium but not us. Not here. We should have a different standard. As he says, it's shameful UGA has rude fans, but like any other school with a tackle football team that plays outside of a dry county, we have them. It's our duty to step up and correct the behavior whenever necessary. Do whatever we can to keep a clean and welcoming house.
The first thing I did upon reaching my seats Saturday evening was find any Auburn fans within a close proximity. I didn't do that to single them out and make them feel unwelcome. And I certainly didn't immediately judge whether I would be able to propel the DNA in my mouth far enough to reach them. I found them so that I could make sure they behaved themselves while visiting my section. And more importantly, so that I could make sure they weren't treated in a way that would embarrass me, my family, and my alma mater.
