Much of my animosity towards Can't comes from their basketball program, especially while it was under Jim Christian. Dirty players (Singletary was the worst, but he was absolutely not the only one) and players with extensive criminal records filled the roster. Players would routinely get arrested, and their only punishment would be to sit out a practice, not even an actual game. But if you ever tried to bring it up, you were just jealous or hating on them.
The same game that Singletary was finally caught punching a player (opposing players were always mysteriously crumpling up on the opposite end of the court from the action - and the referees' eyes - in games in which he was playing), Can't's student section threw stuff, including a box of donuts, at Akron's players as they headed toward the locker room for half time. No technical from the refs, nobody kicked out of the section, Can't officials just ignored it.
I hate how orange the lighting in the MAC Center is. It's easily the worst I've ever seen, anywhere.
I hate how they claim that p*ss-yellow on their uniforms and logo is actually gold.
I hate how their stupid mascot and his stupid teeth.
I hate how they pretend to do important technological research, but when asked about it, can't name one thing they've contributed to since one of their professors invented LCDs forty years ago.
I hate how they convinced the state of Ohio to grant them the status of a "historic residential" university, despite the fact that Akron was established forty years earlier (1870, compared to 1910), and has more residential students living on or adjacent to the main campus.
I hate how they claim to be the second-largest university in Ohio, but only if you count the extra 20,000 students that use their myriad branch campuses as a substitute for community college.
