Me Losing My Mind Following Vandals on Twitter

I need to stop following Vandal fans. I almost had an aneurysm...

It's Saturday. I'm relaxing at home, watching football and some good games going on.  And I'm also tweeting my thoughts, etc.

So here's what Andy Hutchins had to say after the stunning Jacksonville State upset of Ole Miss.:

Ok. Fine. Cool. I am ok with this. I saw the second OT on ESPN because they decided to air it.  It was an epic TD and subsequent two point conversion (I thought there were going to do trickeration, ala Boise State).  Anyway, that quote is, I feel, correct.  But then this:

My first thought was, "No, no, no, no!!!".  Having the cajones to go for two is one thing, fine, but what?! Was UI even an underdog in the Humanitarian Bowl?  And, no, I could look it up, but I won't. I flat out refuse to do that.  If anything, they were not the underdogs in that game.

Then this:

Again, I'm losing it at this point because this is not, as they so eloquently state it, #StuffRobbAkeySays.

And then, of course, he follows it up with:

No. No. No. Sure, I'm cool with "Fortune favors the bold" but, not especially for the "tribe up north".  Not the ones that do an onside kick on FCS team North Dakota to open a half.  When they're up by 17 and haven't allowed a score. The ONLY bold move the Vandals have performed was a two point scramble in a game that was more of a pillow fight than anything.  Please, anyone, show me a game or situation that justifies this reponse!!

If anything, it's "Fortune follows the bold or Coach Pete".

Anyway, I apparently have too much emotional investment in this because this irked me waaaay too much. Ugh.
