We've been told for years that the reason Arkansas State fans were horrible people is because we cheered for the Razorbacks and UCA to lose.

For many of us, we'd honestly hope and prefer everyone rooted for us to get our brains beat in. We'd rather be hated and vilified than universally loved.

It's not an either-or. It seems like everyone here wants us to lose conference games, but in the Go Daddy Bowl thread or the UGA game thread it seemed like everyone was giving us moral support.

I think Wolf Bird might be pulling for App to lose out of saltiness like the posters on the StAte board that are complaining about the "love" App gets for the 11-2 season.

StAte might've played a tougher non-conference schedule last year but that team that got blown out at Toledo last year might not have beaten ODU in Norfolk and the team that got blasted by La Tech probably wouldn't beat Ohio, so I don't see why you have the resentment there for not having it together for non-conference games.

Personally, I think you root for App in this game. If it gets to the point where the same team from a G5 conference is beating Power 5 teams sure it only benefits that team and not the conference, but we aren't there yet as App has not done that well in P5 games at all since they beat Michigan.

Just my 2 cents.

That's certainly a part of it. The biggest beef you'll see on our board is that our win over App last year is almost completely forgotten.

The issue I have is that most of that is our own doing...not media randomly deciding to take it away from us. If we had won either the Toledo or Mizzou game last year and beaten Tech in the bowl, we're likely getting a lot of the same coverage.

We're used to being slighted, so anything that even looks remotely like that happening again is going to be picked up on by our fans. Admittedly, the way Benson handled the trophy snafu last year is not helping. The perception in Jonesboro is that the Conference office wants us to fail. None of that is App's fault, but that's still playing a big role.
