And yeah, I know that you're actually Irish but to have ZERO feelings for LSU, a football powerhouse while LIVING in the deep south. Strange.

Zero rooting interest for LSU. None. My feelings for LSU are all entirely negative.
I live eight miles from LSU's campus, but never go to any LSU sporting events.
I am a serious non-fan of the SEC. So, I have no interest in following SEC athletics, at all.

My two sons graduated from LSU's School of Engineering. Neither are LSU fans.

But why though? Why are your feelings "entirely negative"? Why go to school there if you feel that way? Hell, why live there?

I'm just trying to understand. I grew up an NCSU fan. Many family members were alumni, boosters, season ticket holders, etc. I can't tell you how many NCSU events I attended. I dropped them like a bad habit.


I didn't like attending LSU Law School. They had a 50% attrition rate (designed that way, on purpose) when I attended. They intentionally went out of their way to make life hell for law students. They did not hide how much they enjoyed it.

So, dislike for LSU began while I was a student.

Now, that all has allegedly changed. But as I told the chancellor when he spoke at my law firm about the horribly low law grad donation rate (the last figure I saw for my graduating class was only 1% donated, I never have), those changes came thirty years too late as far as I was concerned.

So, being a law school alumnus never engendered any loyalty towards LSU for me. Quite the opposite, in fact.

The only time I return there is for a Recent Developments Continuing Legal Education Class each September so I can meet the Supreme Court requirements to keep my law license. I avoid the place otherwise.

As far as LSU athletics, the fans entirely turned me off. I came here with the idea that LSU would be my "second team".

That lasted for two games into the 1983 football season. The constant "we are the best at everything, you never saw real football until you came here. We have the best fight song, stadium, fans, band, etc" was too much.

I witnessed much poor LSU fan behavior against opposing fans as well.

Thirty four years of being in Baton Rouge surrounded by Tiger fans have just cemented my dislike for LSU further. The culture is not for me.

I live in Baton Rouge only because that is where I got a job, raised kids, made partner, etc... I have no affection for the place.

This is just where I ended up because of cheap law school tuition and a job after graduation. I had never been here before my first day of class at LSU Law School, so I had no feelings one way or another for Baton Rouge or Louisiana.

Interesting. Means to an ends so to speak. Thanks. That's kind of how I ended up at ECU. More of my classes transferred there than to NCSU but I took a liking to the football and "underdog" culture there.

Me too. But I left with a great appreciation of ECU football and the campus and stadium and college football culture. It's legit. Small town college feel as opposed to a big city college that isn't the flagship of the state and its own students don't even support it.

Hahahaha....UAB and Bamer is a heck of a football rivalry game! They've played at least once I think...

nope not once

It was Auburn that played them in 1996. 29-0 Auburn.

Well that settles it... add UCONN vs Auburn to the list.

Interesting a Syracuse homer would bring UConn up in Alabama football bickering right? Always on your mind right?

So with NSMOrange's influence I'll say Syracuse-UConn

The Mike Bobinski Memorial Catharsis Bowl. Tell Paul Johnson to run the score up every year Bobinski is still AD at Purdue.

I think you already did say SU vs UConn. If it wasn't you, it was another UConn fan. In fact, if I remember correctly, my post was prompted by that post and a post from a Pitt poster mentioning that UConn fans are bent on creating rivalries w/ every northeastern team w a pulse. If I remember correctly, his post was 3-4 above mine.

So to answer your question directly, UConn is always on my mind while I'm reading about UConn. Context is everything.

EDIT: See posts #52, #53, and then my OP (#56).
