Again I ask, “So what?!” If hanging a banner brings some joy to members of the program and their loyal fans, who is that hurting? Can’t we relax our sphincters for a little while and recognize that everyone is just doing their best to find ways to manage the madness of the world these days?
Yes, it's a big so what. I mean, it's their banner, their team, their players and mostly their coach that wanted to do this.
However, I really don't believe anyone here has a tight sphincter (love that word) about the banner.
For me, it's just looking at it for what it is, a tribute to being first in two polls when the season ended. Good for them. But there is a No. 1 when the regular season ends every year. And there is a No. 1 when the conference tournaments end every year. Putting up a banner because there wasn't a Tournament to crown a true champion seems a little self serving. But again, it's their banner.
Look, message boards are supposed to be for discussion. How boring would this thread be if everyone replying like you did to my original post with a "so what".
It would have been a little more palatable if the banner didn't say "unanimous" when there were 10 voters who voted for Oregon.
