For the same reason people hate the Redwings, Yankees, Lakers, Patriots... hell even the Ducks. Pure, ridiculous, irrational jealousy.
no...i hate the ducks because they were created to sell more of a stupid ass movie that people think is true life. that movie set back hockey 20 years. when people find out i like hockey they say, "hey do the mighty ducks still play?!?! those actors are getting old,how are they. isn't that goldberg a good goalie or whatever they're called?" seriously no joke. plus their fans suck, the arena sucks, the parking sucks, all of orange county sucks! even the angels suck! *no offense to my brotha from anotha motha toocool, or any o.c. kings fans*
I promise you that I was more critical of that team than anyone who isn't a fan. I honestly didn't think they deserved a bowl when they lost to Stanford, I knew they didn't deserve a shot at the Championship when they lost to Oregon State, and I don't consider the year LSU won the National Championship as a shared one.
Huge props for being objective enough to acknowlede this despite the NCAA's inexplicable endorsement of a shared championship that year. I think the majority of college football fans see it that ways as well, being that there were three one-loss teams that year and a system in place which to decide the title. Flawed though it may be, it was the agreed upon system.
