Top 4 Ways To Spot A Griz Fan For Brawl Of The Wild In Bozeman
It's finally here; it's Cat/Griz week and the Brawl of the Wild happens this Saturday at Bobcat Stadium. As an added bonus, we now know that ESPN College GameDay will be present as well.
This will be the 121st meeting between the two rivals, and there is a whole lot on the line. The Bobcats are looking for at least a share of the Big Conference Title as they look to go undefeated in Conference play. The Cats' only loss of the season was a road game against Pac-12 team Oregon State earlier this year.
The Griz have bounced back in the last couple of outings after losing 3 games in a row, all to Conference opponents. They're also in possession of the Great Divide trophy after beating the Cats last year in Missoula.
There will be lots of Griz fans in town this weekend, and if you're not careful, you might find yourself in an uncomfortable position. So, for your sake, I've come up with a list of ways to spot a Griz fan, so you can avoid them.
They Travel in Packs
You will rarely see them alone. So, if you find yourself out and about and there are a group of people that are dressed in some sort of goofy maroon and silver outfit, chances are they're Griz fans. If you engage in conversation with them and they don't make a lot of sense, then you know for sure.
They Aren't Very Good at Math
Here's a warning to all of our local workers in the service industry in Bozeman. If you serve a bunch of Griz fans, and it seems like they're not very good tippers, keep in mind that might not be the case. With a graduation rate that is almost 20 percent higher at Montana State than at the University of Montana, we're just better at math here in Bozeman.
They Wear Offensive Clothing
Not known as snappy dressers, you will see many of them wearing clothes that are just downright offensive. Be prepared to hide your children's eyes if you encounter a group of them, as you will no doubt see many of them wearing articles with the letters FTC.
If you are surrounded by Griz fans and there is an odd smell in the air, don't be alarmed, that is entirely normal. What you are actually smelling is the stench of arrogance, and it is very common among fans of the University of Montana. My recommendation is a hot shower soon after the encounter, and you should be fine.
In all honestly, this might be the biggest game in the history of this storied rival. It's the biggest game of the year for Montanans, plus the most popular college football show on the planet will be here to talk about it.
If you're a fan of Bobcat football, this is Christmas come early.
