I Root For: Ohio State

RE: Teams You Pull For Besides Your Favorite
My primary school is Ohio State

Secondary school would have to be Nebraska. Not a long time B1G rival to OSU and a school that if they could return to even 50% of what they were in the 90s would really help the B1G from a competition standpoint.

Outside of primary and secondary, I typically root for all B1G out of conference, and generally root for anyone playing any SEC school. This is derived from all the times the SEC schools have beat my Buckeyes (looking at you Florida, LSU, Alabama, Georgia). Also, you always want the best to lose and the SEC has been the best for the betterment of the last 20 years. I got sick writing that...

This topic harkens me of the emotional first meeting between then US Ambassador to Great Britain John Adams and King George III shortly after the American Revolution. When asked by King George if the rumors are true Adams is not fond of France, the response is “I have not attachment to any country but my own.” After a brief pause the King responds “An honest man would have no other.”

This is my answer to the the question.

1. Washington — I can see the UW campus from my driveway.
2. USF and UConn, they came out with the shortest end of the stick in realignment.
3. Louisville, we had some great battles with them in the Big East
4. Oregon State/Washington State, I hope everything works out for them
5. Air Force, my dad was a recruiter for the Air Force Academy
6. St. John’s University, my mom is an alum and I was fortunate enough to grow up in NYC during the Mullin/Mark Jackson hay day

I Root For: EKU & U of L
Location: Louisville

RE: Teams You Pull For Besides Your Favorite
Other than the two listed in my profile (Eastern Kentucky & Louisville):

1. Purdue-I already had strong family connections there on my own, but then I got married, and my sister-in-law works there.

2. Bellarmine-It's weird because they share a conference with EKU now, but my dad is one of six kids, and five of them have a bachelors from BU. I grew up playing the par 3 golf course they used to have on their campus as well, and I went to their basketball camp a couple of times as kid.

3. Auburn-My best friend from high school went there for two years before transferring home to Louisville. His mom went there too, and he's still a big Auburn fan despite transferring out. As a Louisville fan, I also have an affinity for any program that kind of plays the "second banana" role within its state.

4. WKU-not that I actively root for them, but I married a Hilltopper. I can't hate the way I once did. :)

5. Indiana University Southeast-I have my master's from this New Albany based IU campus. I don't follow their team super actively, but they are a member of the River State's Conference of the NAIA (along with two other IU campuses).

6. Berea College-a member of my graduating class that was a walk-on player at EKU is now the head coach at this D3 school. They also are the other institution of higher learning in the same county where EKU is located (Madison County).

7. Spalding University-Louisville's other Catholic University besides Bellarmine. They are D3 as well.

1. Louisville - My university, I send my children, grandchildren and my money there

2. Notre Dame - Irish heritage. Grew up in very Catholic neighborhood

3. Memphis - I root for the Tigers because I remember how hard it is for “city” schools to get a fair shake in college athletics today. Great fans

Miami?!?! - I have really conflicting feelings with Miami, and so honestly I don’t know what to say. Both my parents are from Miami (my dad is from coral gables). Half my family are Miami fans, my wife’s from Miami and her whole family are Miami grads and fans, and then on the other side, my dad hates Miami and I’m an FSU fan. It’s weird. I don’t like them… but then I also do in certain ways? I have no idea. Maybe a Miami fan can explain my own feelings to me!

Great explanation ... and yet I still have no idea how these "conflicting feelings" are even possible much less compatible. You should probably seek professional help or just follow your better impulses and become a Canes fan full-time 03-wink

1. Miami: One older brother is a Gator. The other is a Nole. Enough said, lol

2. Whoever is playing UF or FSU in any sport

2A. Big East and A-10 men's basketball

3. Non-power conference schools against power conference schools not named Miami

I've also followed programs where my nephew has coached, but that was more a case of wanting the team do well because he was there as opposed to being a fan of the school
