was the was the response to my wife saying that we were struggling, but not as much as UVA.
No intent to start an argument, just a conversation with people that she knew from the gym.
The response from some of the "french" fan members to going down the toilet, they were losing with "class" unlike VT, knowing that our son plays for VT. It seems as excuse to be rude.
The comeback is always the same, we are socially way above VT fans & players ??
Let's count the personal fouls & penalty yards against these guys.
Where we live, you can't get away from these people, as if they are brainwashed, really baffling. Maybe a social skills class would help, or a

Losing with class is still losing
There are certain schools that just seem to have that false sense of moral superiority. Despite arrests, scandals, or any other missteps their sh*t doesn't stink. I hear a lot of that same BS now that I live in Chapel Hill...
It's really a shame that the media is unfairly bashing UNC and making up lies about their school

Roundhouse kick ===========> throat.. With class... I wonder if they think London's sideline demeanor is "all class"... The funny thing is, the people that say that sort of thing are devoid of class, but they dont see it...
Yeah, don't really get that one, clearly making things up to feel better. What are they actually doing when they 'lose with class?'. Are they sending thank you cards to the opposing team afterwards? Running up to the winning QB and saying 'Cheerio QB, good game your team is really superior to ours in all possible facets?'
Conversely, what is VT doing that is classless? Haven't really been hearing anything from the players but that they have to get better. Haven't seen an inordinate number of personal fouls/penalties against us (except for a large number of very questionable calls)
Yup, that blowhard fan just showed how much more 'class' they have.
easy to lose with class when no one is at the games to witness the losing.
The group of thugs Mike London is bringing in can't even spell "class"
Did you hear Hoo got arrested? Thomas Jefferson would be proud!
Count the personal fouls, penalty yards, and gang signs flashed by their players. Class? London through that out to window when he went racial on the recruiting trail.
Their fans are hilarious. The core and overwhelming majority of their students are rich kids given every advantage in life. They've created a culture with zero humility and all the arrogance and elitism you'd expect from a 20 year old brat coming from 4th generation money.
Of course there are exceptions. I give credit that it is a very highly ranked school. But at the end of the day, their grads make the same as our grads in the real world.
I have a couple friends that went on athletic scholarships (not football) and they will both say they are grateful for the education but they had nothing in common with their classmates.
The funniest part is how it has rubbed off on fans who didn't even go there. If they knew how much the students there mocked and basically disliked them, it would break their wannabe elitist hearts. There are also fans who just grew up loving UVA and don't care about that. Great people and tough break the school they root for is UVA. But a lot of their fanbase has adopted the arrogance and its an odd thing really.
I'll take the good guys in maroon and orange known to have some of the friendliest fans and tailgates in the country. No question who has more fun.
Lets not forget Chase Minnifield's sucker punch on Dukes QB last year.
Didn't wake's coach Grobe call their 2010 team the most unprofessional group he's ever coached against?
On a side note, I miss the days of 'no class' at VT. That was basically code for UVA fans saying 'we're scared sh*tless were gonna get our bell rung today'. Our class is improving as our intimidation lowers. I don't like that relationship.
Losing with ASS CLowns = Losing with CLASS, if you spin it the right way.
Simply use to losing
Losing with class is just another way of saying "we are losers...might as well get use to it and accept it...it is what it is".....we on the other hand are not use to losing...do not like losing and will be foul until we resolve the problem and stop this nonsense of losing.....
^ This cracks me up, good thing I wasn't drinking my coffee yet!
We are in a conference full of them.
Middleguard: i am going to a family reunion in natural bridge this weekend and quite a few of the french will be there. I will let you know how our conversations go. :)
Twitter: @bc10wjvt or @TheNorthEndzone
...and they have certainly perfected how to lose.
Not all of us are excited about the types of "characters" London seems to be going after. I'm getting sick and tired of the stupid cheap shot penalties and London and Dex doing nothing about it.
I want London to start being a COACH and stop trying to be their buddy.
My sister and her family live on a farm in Natural Bridge.
