IN THE STANDS AT High

Last night I witnessed one of
the most disgusting acts I've ever seen in my life. I'm standing
in Section 111 Row 27 and I hear the girls across from us in
110 start screaming. Some guy pulled out his [deleted]
and started pissing all over the rows in front of him as his
friends stood and cheered him on.
Now I don't normally read into
what my fellow students do at the games, but I've never seen
anything so ugly. It is [deleted] like this that give
RU fans a bad rap. We are known for cursing the Naval Academy,
flipping off cameras, pissing on students, and starting fights.
Last night was embarrassing from a fan standpoint, perhaps an
I'll share my student story from
last night. 4th quarter and probably about 8 or 9 minutes left
in the game. A UNC student in my section (115) walked through
every row to pick up the American flags dumped on the ground
by RU students. I commended him on it and he stated that it was
a disgrace that the flags were just thrown on the ground.
About 5 minutes later this student
and his five friends standing in the middle of an empty 115 had
a drink thrown on them by a Rutgers student. The drink was in
a cup and just got the arm of one of the guys wet. Two minutes
later another drink (in an open bottle this time) was thrown
on them and hit one of the girls in the group. Someone in the
UNC group confronted the drink thrower. Security rushed down
and grabbed two of the UNC guys and escorted them out of the
stadium. Other RU students saw this and started yelling "asshole"
at these guys.

When you combine this story with
the pissing one, I personally am completely ashamed to have attended
this university and being associated with it in any way. This
is mind-boggling, embarrassing, pathetic and just disgusting.
Rutgers is hitting new lows across the board this season.
My wife and I watched a drunk
student in the lower rows of Sect. 123 throw up on the row in
front of him. Everyone scattered and then covered up the vomit
with give-away white towels. The student left a little bit later.
Last night was pretty bad all
around. I remember someone throwing a hot dog from above us.
My friend and I had ketchup on us, other students throwing gatorades
and drinks, towels, etc all around the student section. It's
like this almost every game.
I doubt that most people on this
board won't admit it, but we have a lot of incredibly lowlife
students at Rutgers.
Walking to and from games, and
around the stadium, I've seen countless examples of trashy behavior.
Maybe it's time to start interviewing
prospective students, so as to possibly screen out some of these
I've said it many times on this
board. I'd much rather have the fans who sat with me in the student
section back in 2001 than the ones today. It's almost as if these
latest ones exclusively picked Rutgers for the football alone.

I agree. The decline of the student
section began during the 2006 season, when I was a senior. That's
when we started to hear the first FUCK YOU (insert school here)
chants, and we began to realize that most of them don't come
to watch a football game. Guess that's the kind of student you
start getting after you've been nationally ranked for a couple
From a UNC alumnus:
I'm a guest here and will act
accordingly. However, I will say that having visited venues all
over the country to watch the Heels play football, basketball,
and baseball, I've never encountered students as bad as those
I saw on Thursday night.
I'm sorry to be so blunt on your
board as it isn't my nature, but it was really a poor reflection
on your university. As for the notion that it happens everywhere
there is a big student following, that simply is not the case.
UNC is far from being competitive in football, but we routinely
fill 17,000 student seats in Kenan. We don't have those sorts
