Feels like we're generalizing here. Some old time Nubs are decent.


Not blaming your post - you nailed it with the arrogance, entitlement thing. But that might apply to everyone born after about Vietnam.

The old folks remember when they had to piece together a winning team under Devaney and then Osborn. (I have personal tales from my in-laws of steroid cheating under Osborn, while they were crushing us, but that is for another day)

Point is, they built it, the fans really had something to rally around, and it was great for them.

Same thing for CU. We have folks who lived through the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, who saw our path. Some saw how hard that was, all the Bill Mac weirdness, Barnett's era ("she kicked like a girl!"), and suffered through it.

We are the old guard but I hate to say it, not that far off from the Nubs that Rub.
