Regarding your article “Gorlok spirit: I can’t hear it” in the March 7 issue, I just wanted to say that I absolutely LOVED this article! Being an athlete here myself, I found myself saying “Yes, yes yes!” to everything in this article. Not only is it embarrassing to have opposing fans beat us in cheering (not only in basketball) but it shows the school has little care for their athletic teams.
With nearly every team winning championships in some way every year and we still can’t even have an Athletics tab on the main page of our website is pathetic. It amazes me how many times I hear people ask, “Do we even have sports teams here?” Hello, do you not see us walking around in our gear everyday and see the big gym with trophies where you eat?!
Once again, I just wanted to say, “Thank You” to Andy Arb for writing this article. It hit home for me and am glad someone else recognizes this and felt
it enough to write about it.
