Why do you guys hate us Buckeye fans so much?

Why do you guys hate us Buckeye fans so much? 


Honestly, Cincinatti hating us is somewhat of a shock to me. Is it because we are the capital city? Is it because you guys want to not stand in our shadow as the premier college university of the state? Honestly, I have no clue why an Ohio school would hate us so much. We do not think about you guys at all as far as a rivalry goes. I mean Michigan, MSU, Wisky, maybe even Illinois...yeah, but never have we ever been concerned with UC. Hell, most Buckeye fans I know here in Columbus cheer on Cincy during the regular season in basketball and football if we arent watching the Buckeye games. Wouldn't you guys want Ohio State to go on a run so OHIO can win a title?

Seriously, Im confused. Where does the hate from Cincy come from?

Don't think they (we) hate you at all.  Don't think we think about you much at all.  But posters who insert comments like the one above will certainly cause posters like me, whether you're from OSU or Duke or LittleSistersofthePoor to call you a jacka$$.  Sheer arrogance on your part...without good reason.

Good game, your team was better.  I won't be rooting for you or against you necessarily (it will depend mostly on who you play) because I really never think about OSU unless we play you or someone posts stupid stuff.

Re: Why do you guys hate us Buckeye fans so much? 


What I posted was not bad at all unless someone has an inferiority complex. When you ask about Ohio football or basketball, 99% of Americans will say "Ohio State." That comment was not demeaning to UC fans, it's just the plain truth. The only reason why I could see UC having a reason to hate us is wanting to separate themselves as a different program with it's own accomplishment. I honestly, have no clue why there is so much hate for Ohio State in UC forums I have seen in the last 48 hours or so.

Seriously, it's like some sort of rivalry we never knew existed. Shouldn't Ohio teams be cheering each other on, and not hating each other?

The attitude displayed in the bolded sentence is one reason why.   The second reason is that Cincinnati is not like the rest of the state.   We are a regional city that has two other states in our metro area.  Cincinnati has very little in common culturally with Columbus or the rest of the state.   Most people from Cincinnati could care less if some other school in Ohio wins the tournament.

What exactly is a "college university"?  Should OSU be changed to THE Ohio State College University?

You mean like the 2 National Championships we've won? UC doesn't need to fawn over OSU and the fact that you think we should means you probably went to a MAC school. Most of the comments from my friends are wishing OSU well in the tournament, but it'd not such a big deal to us if it doesn't happen. It's the ignorant OSU trolls on our board that we don't appreciate.

Re: Why do you guys hate us Buckeye fans so much? 


See this is exactly what i am talking about. Ok so you have 2 national titles in basketball. Good for you. I think thats great that an ohio team other than ohio state has won a national title because that looks good for ohio. Still, theres actual resentment coming from uc fans. Is it because you want to be defined APART from ohio state? I mean honestly uc is never on ohio state fans radar, yet i can post TONS of "i hate osu" posts from various forums. Why? What wrong have we done to uc?

Re: Why do you guys hate us Buckeye fans so much? 


Read carefully...WE DON'T CARE.  OSU is no different to us than any other school in or out of the state.  I don't like them.  I don't hate them.  I don't think about them except in weeks like this week.  Never have, doubt I ever will.

I don't watch your games to root for you or against you.  I don't look for your name in the polls.  I don't check Big10 standings for your record.  I barely know if you beat or lost to Michigan.  I DON'T CARE.

I post 'in your face' stuff to OSU posters when they post 'in your face' posts to us first.  I don't go to your message boards because I DON'T CARE.  No 'defining' or 'separation' needed because its already there.

You cannot make a 1-paragraph post without revealing your own arrogance on the topic...an arrogance that is not well founded...an arrogance that screams, 'Look at me!'.  So again, please read...I DON'T CARE or THINK about OSU.

Ok, I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that you're ignorant instead of the normal troll. We are the University of Cincinnati. We are not affiliated with Ohio State. We are proud of the accomplishments of our school; both academically and athletically. We have some of the finest programs in the nation; both academically and athletically. We cheer for our school, period. Ohio State may have the run of the rest of the state, but Cincinnati is proud to support the University of Cincinnati.

Hey buddy the feeling is mutual, Ohio State isn't on our radar either.  Look through this board and look for posts about OSU.  You might find 1 in every 1000. 

It's like you're assuming all we do is talk about OSU because we are from Ohio and that is what fans of MAC schools do.  Outside of this week we haven't talked about OSU at all except when you guys hired Kerry Coombs away from us and that's because it had a direct effect on us.

I hate OSU because it seems that they think they are above being hated.

Also topics started on our board by Buckeye fans with titles such as Win vs Fl State and 'Cats get game vs Big Bad Buckeyes don't help much either.

Re: Why do you guys hate us Buckeye fans so much? 


First off, buckeye fans "do not think we are above the hatred." I am sure we have soke bad fans but its no worse than auburn fans stabbing bama fans to death, florida fans calling in bomb threats on a towtruck driver who towed a star florida players car, or psu fans defending paterno and insulting the kids who got molested. Unless you have a poll or hard proof, you cant just claim a whole fanbase thinks one way or another. People did that same thing to minorities (and still do). Thats called generalizing. Second, just for reference, take a look at this forum

forums.bearcatnews.com/

I have no clue why bearcat fans hate us so much when we constantly root for their success just like we would for tue cavs, the browns or the bengals.

I posted the below comment earlier this week, and your comments here just show how dead on it is. Most Cincinnati fans dont hate Ohio State, and really dont even think about your school. We had a big game, so naturally both fan bases traded jabs. The game is over and we're moving on with our lives, but you still feel the need to stop by to make arrogant comments.

 "All the Ohio State fans I’ve heard from have such an arrogance about them, it’s disgusting. I've heard multiple comments this week along the lines of "OSU would have nothing to gain by playing UC." and "People in Cincinnati talk about Ohio State all the time, and people in Columbus don’t talk about UC because we don’t talk about inferior programs." I really think that they believe that Columbus is the center of the Football/Basketball world and all other schools should be lucky to even be in the same arena as them.

 

Personally, I don’t talk about Ohio State or even think about them for that matter unless we have a game coming up against them or if their game directly affects UC. If playing OSU every year means that we'll have to put up with this on an annual basis, I'd rather not play them and let them continue to live in their delusional little worlds."

OK, you have about one post to clean up your act. This is very thinly veiled flaming. The arrogance is obvious.

Wasn't it you that started this thread inferring that all Bearcat fans hate Buckeye fans?

Re: Why do you guys hate us Buckeye fans so much? 


I made NO arrogant comments. Tell me exactly what I said that seems so arrogant? I told the complete truth. When you think of Ohio college athletics, you think of Ohio State no matter which sport. The same is for California and USC, Texas and the Longhorns, Oklahoma and the Sooners and Michigan and the Wolverines.

I find it telling that Bearcats seems to think this is arrogance when the average person not living in ciny would agree. I think. Most of you know this is true. Ask the average person who they think of for Ohio sports and they would say "Ohio State." I am confused as to how this is arrogance.

Nope. I didn't say "all bearcat fans." I said "you guys," and then I elaborated on several forums and message boards I have read within the last 48 hours. I believe it was in my second or third post in this topic.biggrin

It's "very thinly veiled flaming" because you may not like what I am saying. I haven't offended anyone, nor have I said anything that is unreasonable.

Re: Why do you guys hate us Buckeye fans so much? 


After all the dust has settled here and on Facebook, we watched a pretty good game.  It was great talking to you all yesterday.

I am proud to be a Buckeye, and I am just as proud to be from Cincinnati.  Columbus, although it is flat as a pancake, is a  great city.  I spent the best four years of my life there.  I have been a fan my whole life. It is a gorwing city with a lot of character.  Short North, German Village, Downtown.  You can't go wrong

Cincinnati is the Chicago before there was Chicago.  A city with a lot of pride and tradition.  It's sense of community is second to none.  Church festivals, Friday night football, and Oktoberfest...I can't get enough.  There is no shortage of places to go and things to do.

Both cities have great schools with great sports traditions. 2 National titles are great.  I think 10 Final Fours are great too.  Hopefully we can bring home another one.  I guess what I am trying to say through all of this is can't we band together to bash UK AND UM FANS?wink

Aside from all this can anyone give us the skinny on 'Cuse?  Besides that they play a zone?
