You honored VT and the VT fans began cheering/chanting afterwards and that upset you? No one in the VT section could really hear what was happening after that because of the cheering in our section. Things quieted down pretty quickly once your Alma Mater got going and it wasn't a big deal at all. My guess is that your viewpoint of the situation changed dramatically after VT won the game handily.

Everyone around me agreed, it was the most classless thing we've ever witnessed by away fans at Death Valley (and we are visited every other year by USCe, so that's saying somthing).
Based on this thread, looks like this is more of a trend than a one time deal, which is what I originally chalked it up to. Try to have a little class this year if you plan on visiting Death Valley.
