As I left mustang stadium on Saturday night, I felt a little ashamed to call myself a Mustang. Throughout the entire game, I heard the guy in front of me yelling “rip his f–ing head off” and others yelling “Davis you suck, go home Davis!”

I ask myself, is this what we want others to think of when they hear Cal Poly football? Sitting around me were kids as young as 6 and parents as old as 75, and throughout the entire game they were subject to the unsportsmanlike conduct of numerous college kids. It’s one thing to cheer your team on, but to curse and yell at the other team just makes you sound immature. So next time you’re at a football game think of the 6 year old boy who is watching and listening to what you say.
