Football backlash inappropriate

Recently, I have been more than disappointed with the attitudes of students on campus over the UA versus ASU (football) game. I am someone who is a very big football fan and have supported the Wildcats through thick and thin, which is something that all students should do. After the game on Thursday, I was not too disappointed with the score of the game, but rather how UA students chose to act. On Facebook, I received numerous invitations to groups entitled “”Zendejas blows, my grandma can kick better than you”” and “”Betty White can kick better than Alex Zendejas”” — these are just a few examples of the ridiculous groups that were made.

As cliché as this may sound, there is no “”I”” in team, and we should not put the blame of the game on one individual. Despite my sadness about the loss to ASU, it made me entirely disappointed to see how students reacted to the game and the lack of sportsmanship and support that students showed. Next time, students should remember the good things that players did during games instead of the negative things.
