Mic: WAC Right To Whack BSU Coach

Mic Armon (re: WAC slaps trash-talking BSU coach): The cross country coach from BSU must have attended a different WAC championship then I did. I was at the meet and I will admit that it was one of the more well-attended and loud X-C meets that I have ever been at (and I have been to a few). But the Idaho fans were more then respectful for all of the teams, even to the point of cheering when the BSU men’s team was announced as the champions. BSU ran a very good race and had a couple of their guys have huge PR’s, but U of I had a great year and the Vandal Ladies are WAC champs. As a very proud Dad of a Vandal X-C runner, I am certain that I would never want my son to run for a coach that can only feel good about his program by belittling others.

Question: Have your children ever had been athletic coaches?

WAC Slaps Trash-Talking BSU Coach

Cross country might not seem like a sport filled with trash talk, but even it has given us a bit more fodder during the buildup to Friday’s Idaho-Boise State football game. Broncos cross country coach Brad Wick had this to say after the recent WAC meet at Moscow, in which his men’s team won the title: “Even though their team (Idaho) wasn’t our rival in the meet, it feels good to go there because their fans have very poor sportsmanship, so it feels extra good to get the WAC championship on their turf.” The quote appeared in the BSU student newspaper, the Arbiter. Here’s a link to the story. Perhaps these comments would have gone unnoticed, but on Wednesday morning, the WAC issued a reprimand of Wick/Matt Baney, Idaho Vandals blog. More here.

Question: Anyone have a good one-liner to toss in the thread below to trash talk one of the rivals involved in this week’s big game between visiting Boise State and Idaho?
