This is not cool. there’s no place in calling up opposing players.

Agreed. Not cool. Unfortunately, it’s one of the downsides of this new world of instant electronic personal communication and the lack of privacy (and personal dignity, IMO) that comes with it.


#3

Not cool at all. At least, according to the player, it wasn’t anything vulgar or offensive.


#4

Yeah good move to harass a player on a team that we’ve beaten once in God knows how many times.

That would equate to Indiana Football fans callin McGloin.


#5

And the saddest part is these fans who are doing it, think it’s funny.

Grow up Lar. ;D


#6

Uh. We beat them twice last year.

Best prank ever might have been the Cal students who used instant messaging to flirt with USC basketball player Gabe Pruitt. They carried on a week long prank posing as a UCLA coed interested in arranging a date back in LA after USC’s game at Cal. When the kid lined up for a free throw, the student body started chanting “Victoria, Victoria”, his supposed date’s name, along with her phone number. Pruit was shocked and bricked both free throws. He also wound up shooting only 3-13 from the field and Cal won easily.

Now that was funny. The PSU fans’ harassment, not so funny.

Forgot about the Tourney Win. DOH! As Emily Litella used to say on SNL “Never Mind”

That is pretty funny, and it was seemingly effective. I don’t think we can really gauge how funny the PSU fans’ harrassment was, though, since we didn’t really get to hear any of the details, other than that one of the comments was a “Boxers or Briefs?” comment, which is definitely not funny. It might have been effective, though, seeing how he only had 3 points and 3 boards in 33 minutes of action.

On a side note, are people still asking the boxers vs. briefs questions? Seems very 90’s. Of course, I’m a guy who occasionally like to give a good “Whaaaaazzzzuuupppppp?”, so perhaps I don’t have room to talk ;D

Now, back to Bruesewitz - if there are any PSU students in this forum that participated in the prank, or “know people that participated the prank”, please clue us in to some of the details of the calls and texts, so that we may accurately gauge the comedic value. Most of us probably agree that it was a juvenile stunt, but if it was all in good fun, then maybe we can let it slide this one time.

As long as they don’t say anything over the line, I don’t mind it before the game. If it’s playful and fun, it’s fine, but after the game it should be over. This happens all the time and isn’t that big of a deal IF they don’t cross the line
