Oh no doubt. One of my best buds is an ODU grad. During the peak of the CAA days he and his band of subnormal, miscreant friends would head up every March for tourney weekend. Dudes were an absolute riot.I'll guarantee you every die hard game VCU fan that became a fan prior to 2011 has a rivalry story to tell regarding the VCU/fodu rivalry.
One year, everyone took off work on pillow fight Friday just to go see Northeastern play in the early game. One dude managed to get completely hammered by 10am, then bought great seats near the court with the sole intention of pissing off JJ Barea. We were all down there, and I tell you what this was ball busting level red. There couldn’t have been more than 100 people there and here is this sloppy guy verbally hammering this guy nonstop. Barea was so confused. At one point the whole arena became silent and everyone stopped to look over. I mean refs, coaches, everyone.
He was eventually ushered out but it was classic while it lasted.
I like to give ODU a hard time, but I tell you what, there was nobody crazier and more fun to watch hoops with than those idiots.
