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?
Maybe I’m out of step with society, but I don’t care much for the trash talking that goes on in sports. It doesn’t strike me as something that fits with the ideals of sportsmanship and fair play. You can imagine how disgusted I was at my daughter’s recent soccer game to hear 4 or 5 members of the opposing team talking trash throughout the second half of the match. They had taken a lead of 5-1 and apparently felt comfortable enough to start in with the insults and name-calling. Yelling at the goalie, “You’re the worst goalie ever,” and “We can score on you all day long.” Taunting the forwards, “I’m going to do cartwheels and you still can’t score on us.” Stealing the ball away from a midfielder with a nasty, “You suck”/Idaho Dad, A Family Runs Through It.
