You know this is him too, right? That's at least 3 active now.
Columbus to Houston to... Waco? Not happening.
I concur with your assessment and submit that he is also actively commenting as UbuntuBuckuntu.
I believe in some cases, not sure if it applies here, that a recruit wants to delay the repercussions of announcing for someone other than the local team. In other words, why put up with months of being called a traitor when you can delay it until nearly the last minute?
That's pretty much the distinction; drunken college students especially, plus other lushes in Madison on game day are exactly as you described. I avoided wearing my Buckeyes gear on the west (campus) side Saturdays last season and had zero issues on the east side. I believe the insane alcohol consumption plays a role in the behavioral difference. Other places may have their fair share of drinkers, but no where in the US threatens to top Wisconsin. Madison has ~ 250k people, and is generally one of the friendliest places I've been, certainly in the US.
Dice Clay made a career out of it too.
Clearly my mad skills have elevated Madison to unprecedented heights.
Boston and Mass-holes in general are well deserving of their ranking. Heading to the LA area today, another glorious place to be on the road...
