Well, that's the balancing act of fandom. We wouldn't care about ordinary students going elsewhere, but these aren't ordinary students. I think it's okay to be disappointed that our favorite team isn't getting a player who could help contribute to their future success. I understand the "these are just kids" brigade, but at the end of the day, sports fandom, especially in the university setting, is fairly illogical anyway. So I'm disappointed Race is going elsewhere. I'll be very happy that Jarvis is coming. Frankly, Jarvis's star seems more on the rise anyway, and I think he fits our system. But once Jarvis, Jamir Harris, or any other person puts on that maroon and gold, I support them and want them to succeed. And once Race Thompson puts on the crimson, or any other Minnesota kid puts on the uniform of another school, I oppose them and want them to fail (purely in a basketballing sense). That's the nature of it. It's a zero sum game. In order for my team to succeed, the other must fail.
Its one thing to be disappointed to not get a kid you wanted to play for your school. Its another thing entirely to question their upbringing because they didn't do what you wanted them to do. That is idiotic, irrational and pathetic and those that do are saying way more about their own character than the parenting skills of the Thompsons
