What's the Serbian word for "Buckeyes?"

And you thought Columbus was bad? Below is a clip of a free-for-all (including lit and thrown flares -- yes, FLARES!) before a Serbia-Greece basketball game in Belgrade Tuesday.

Aftewards, Karenislav A. Holbrooksovic, president of THE Serbian State University, said she thinks they have turned the corner regarding fan behavior at ULEB Cup basketball games.



Here's a Reuters clip/news story of the event as well.

You've got to be shitting me. I just spent the last 16 hours of my life studying for a Slavic literature exam that's tomorrow. You know what we learned in there, among other things? Serbs don't like Greece. And for that matter, they all fucking hate each other. It makes Michigan-Ohio State look like pre-schoolers. And they have really sweet names like Mladic and Izetbegovic.

I logged on the blog to get away from that shit, and the top story is about Serbia. You guys fucking suck. Not really, but I think you understand my bitterness.

Slavic lit exam? Daaaamn. E, that sounds like too much homework. May I recommend Intro to Psych? Leaves much more time for other collegiate activities.

Great we gave the $uckeyes more ideas for the next time they riot. With their basketball program doing well we could see this soon on local and national television.

MC ... O$U garb in library ... you wouldn't by chance be sporting a buckstache and checking out kiddie porn as well?

I may have found some fans worse than Buckeye's or Serbs (I know, I know...). a group of UCLA fans attack USC fan and he loses an eye before the big game at the Rose Bowl, when he is walking to the bathroom before the game. That's just not right! I'm sure USC fans won't have that trouble with Michigan fans at the Rose Bowl next month.

Scott said...

Dude, that kind of stuff happens everywhere. Why are you picking on the Serbs? It would be the same thing at Crisler if Michigan played a game like that.

(If figured someone should give the standard 'behavior post' reply.)

Andy said...

I'm sure the Serbs get treated much worse when they visit Athens.

BTW, the song playing in the background is the serbian favorite:
"We don't give a damn about the whole country of greece...."

TitleIX said...

Andy, you CRACK me up!

BosnianGuy said...

in case anyone was wondering the title on the video reads unmonitered material lol. Another fyi this is nothing new to the balkans like eric s. said there is plenty of hate in that region. Croatia is far worse then the serbs and the serbian soccer team had to get a police escort to their match in Bosnia over fear of Bosnians seeking revenge. This is like another day in the office.

As far as names Dragan has to be my favorite.

Howard21 said...

We used to have to get police escorts in H.S. when we would play games on the reservation. My dad had his bus rocked and a girl got jumped in a bathroom when he would play on the rez. the natives take their h.s. hoops seriously in montana.

LOL, Andy, Scott!

Andy said...

Let me guess....

mužjak-središte = Fuck Michigan

WhiteDawg said...

You know you all talk about Florida bitching about the BCS before they were selected. How about the state of Michigan stop bitching. This is just funny....

See if you win all your games it doesn't matter.

Eric, you moron. Greeks and Serbs are allies, they see each other as orthodox brothers. The shitty education of scUM shows.

matsut said...

You guys are fuckers for titling you post the way you did.

Naw, just kidding...that's actually really funny...except nobody's LOST A FUCKING EYE in Columbus because they were a Michigan fan, powdered donuts notwithstanding.

Yost said...

LOL, M.

BosnianGuy said...

anon 8:32 being born in Bosnia in that region of the world I can tell you that most of the countries despise each other. Hell we can't go 50 years without a war. Now I'm only 15 but listening to stories from my elders I can tell you that everyone is a rival and religion isn't a strong enough bond to keep supporters from doing this to each other.

BosnianGuy said...

mužjak-središte

mužjak means a male animal such as a lion as opposed to a lioness and središte means the center or sweet spot. For example if someone was making fun of you and it his were it hurt, you would say he hit you in the središte.

I live in Poland and have been at 2 soccer games in which fans did the same thing. Sports fans in Europe are far more passionate. At one riot, the home team fans attacked the winning team as they were celebrating there victory, right in front of me and a few friends. Its insane... Luckily in the U.S we do not have situations like this....yjo
