To all those who went to UNC...

I think it's acceptable if you had a close family member go to school.

I half heartedly will cheer for GT and Auburn because my brothers went there. I'd certainly be happy if/when either win a national championship.

I would never deny someone the right to be a casual fan of a team through association. My dad, grandpa, uncles went to Michigan State so I was cheering for them to win last night. Notice how I use them instead of we though

I don't care if someone says we and he or she never went to that school. As long as they say we when that team is struggling.

I'd also give a pass to fans that are actually from Chapel Hill.

lol I'm doing my undergrad at UNCC and I've seen so many people here wearing UNC shirts today. Motha fukka, they REJECTED your ass. That's why you're here. That's like getting a tattoo of the name of your ex who cheated on you with a better-looking guy. SHE REJECTED YOU TOO.

The funny thing is that all of those shirts will be gone for football season. But thats how non-graduates roll...they latch on to the national success and jump off the bandwagon as soon as it isn't where they want it to be. One of the perks of not actually going to school there...

Agreed..growing up/living in a city gives you a right to root for a team. Growing up in NC however does not because there are 4 ACC teams from this state to root for and those that chose UNC without an aforementioned affiliation did so because of prestige..

As if going to the school has any effect on whether the team wins or not. LOL

Not necessarily - there are those who have absolutely no desire whatsoever to attend UNC-Chapel Hill or NC State for that matter. Some got offers and even got scholarships and chose someplace else anyway.

Those shirts will undoubtedly be replaced during football season by either Southern Cal, one of the Florida schools, or Ohio State shirts.

Truth.

Have to disagree with your last statement. If you live in NC or from NC you have the right to root for UNC. Now if you are not from NC or went to UNC you have no claim to root for them. If you moved from somewhere else you shouldnt root for them.

Then there are those (me) who were making more money right out of high school than the degree they wanted would have made them anyway, so there was no need to go in dept to pay for college.

Anybody that don't like me being a Tar Heel fan might as well just get the hell over it.:D

Anybody can pull for whoever they want.

But when you start talking smack on behalf of "your" team, refer to them as "we", etc, and you never even attended the school, that's the line IMO.
