I was just wondering if anyone had issues with the Cal fan base? I know I surprisingly had two things pop up, one with students being students and one with an old belligerent man.
As we got off the BART, I was walking with my 10 year old, older aunt and uncle and wife and there were two Cal college age looking students walking right behind us. They began talking loudly how they wanted to "find a Buckeye fan so they could murder someone...I mean we are literally going to f---ing murder a Buckeye fan today and get away with it." My son just looked up at me and we all turned down a different street and they went another way. Just inappropriate but didn't acknowledge them because it was kids being kids.
The second incident was a belligerent Cal fan behind us in the stands. He decided he was going to yell at the top of his lungs until my wife sat down in front of him, instead of you know...asking. Eventually my wife caught on and explained to him that there was thousands of people standing in front of her and if she sat down she wouldn't be able to see the game. He decided to begin yelling at my wife which prompted a pretty heated confrontation from me until his family moved him. They explained he was on medicines. The family (about 7 of them total) were all real nice people and we talked throughout the game it was just the crazy old dad who had problems.
So just two experiences and none of them were major but I'm just curious if anyone else had issues. As someone who is pretty quiet and travels to a lot of big OSU games I'd have to say the fan "experience" of Cal was just slightly below the Arkansas fan base at the Sugar Bowl but still way below the Miami fans down in south Florida.
