Agreed unsung. Make no mistake. I can't stand Gary Williams, but it is the same way I can't stand Bobby Knight, I just don't like him. It has nothing to do with the fact he is coaching a local team. When I was an alum working in DC most of my coworkers who went to Maryland supported GW more and new more about the program that did many of the GW "fans" I knew, sadly enough.
Even this year after we beat them, many people on their board were rooting for us to beat their fellow ACC team in NC. It's those elitist snobs/cowards (take your pick) on that metro-less hill that should be our biggest crosstown rival.
