This. That is their biggest issue.The hatred is ridiculous. I was a Marquette fan long before I attended VCU (why I still read the boards) but the fan base has a massively inflated view of the program.
I mean the comment I quoted above is ludicrous. Would Dayton be competing for first place? Prob not. Nova is such a tough out in the regular season. Xavier has a lock on at least 2nd place. After that, I'd put Dayton up with the Providence, SH and Butler group...and anybody honest about it would say the say thing.
I read a lot of their message boards...the BE that is. I get all the fans love the round robin 10 team lineup. I would too...it makes sense; FROM A FAN PERSPECTIVE. It's perfect, no doubt. But that may not be what the AD's, Presidents, schools are thinking at the same time.
after reading even further, their fan base is so wrong on so many of their Dayton "facts" I wouldn't even know where to start. It's like if you say it over there, well, it must be true.
The list of teams that most of them want IF their is expansion is NEVER going to happen....it's almost like Marq fans have never heard of this sport called "football"??
