in the deep recesses of your mind can you remember a hog that was put under the gun by fans like brandon allen?
in any sport.

NO 


Some have been booed I guess.  But it was the coaches that got the blame for losing. 

The torching of a truck is a cowardly act as well as criminal.Certainly hope it had nothing to do with football.

With all the camera's around school, you think one picked up something or someone saw something.

Peanut Adams. I believe he was the starting QB before Grovey, and I remember being at the game where the fans started booing him and chanting for Grovey. So he wasn't liked that much either. That was before the internet, so I think he was just about even with Allen in fans eyes, just you didn't here that much about it because there wasn't anything like this to voice opinions.

Edit: It wasn't Adams, it was whoever the QB before Grovey was. Tried to find the name, but can't.

I don't know if you saw my comment last night, but after CBB's statement about the incident, I don't believe it was a vandalization aimed at Allen. There (according to CBB) were several incidents over the weekend. The very first statement I saw yesterday said there were three on Sunday night, but since Allen's truck was involved, and another truck that looked like it, people assumed it was targeting. Remember my comments a few days ago, that AR media makes it in favor of what they can sell. Journalistic integrity remember.

I can't remember his name, there was a kicker that missed some key kicks. There were a lot of brutal jokes.

That could be it, I was only 13-14 at the time, but I remember the crowd boing and chanting for Grovey until he came in, and I don't remember Grovey ever going back out until after his Sr year

Re: oldtimers answer this 


Rzrback32 the field goal kicker was Greg Horne.  He invoked the ire of many.  He was the butt of many jokes.  Many were very cruel.

It's hard to compare eras. In pre-internet days many were booed or excoriated but since there was no internet in those days you really didn't know anything about it.

It seems that every year a player becomes the butt boy de jour.  Ronnie Wingo is an example.

To me the worst was Michael Sanchez.  The level of abuse he got was unprecedented in my book.  This really made me sad since I knew what a phenomenal person he was and the level of pain he played with.

Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about

Re: oldtimers answer this 


The worst single game experience I recall seeing was for Robert Johnson, who started the USC game. As you might recall, we fumbled that one away, and some normally sure hands dropped several passes.

The crowd was a little over anxious for Mitch Mustain (we didn't start true freshman then either).  A few ill behaved folks even began taunting the poor boy's mother with some ugly words.

The crowd didn't mean for it to come off like it did, but when Mustain came in, the reaction was such that you couldn't help but feel for the kid...if you cared about that sort of thing.

It was sort of like when the convention audience cheered as Clinton finished his nominating speech for Dukakis with "in conclusion...."

I think they  named some kind of award for him because he made a successful adjustment to the receiver position after a rough start at QB.  I seem to recall him catching a few big catches at the end of his career, which led to warm applause by the crowd.

As the end drew near fro HDN, I recall grey haired grandma's hurling such abusive epithets at Casey Dick that I felt the need to hurl them back.  I'm not sure who was more embarrassing.

I think we can do without this.  If you remember a hog being booed or "put under the gun" in the sense of the question just forget about it.

The acquisition of wealth is a good thing.  It is virtuous to be inspired by the profit motive and selfishness.  The love of money is virtuous.  It is good to have no faith. Mysticism and self-sacrifice are enemies of the rational man.

I doubt Hog fans are any worse than the rest, but you know what they say about those who forget their history.

Jason Allen.

Interestingly, in 1992, when Lunney was the hero against Tennessee,  Lunney completed 32% of his passes. Allen completed 51%.

Exactly, you ignore history and it's at your own risk.
