I'm a big 12 guy. Until this year I cheered for nebbie and cu. Now that they are leaving I hope they lose every game. I cheered for Iowa (I don't want to play them a week after an upset and I prefer they have that #9 in front because I want us to take it away) and I cheered for Utah as they could make the top 25 before we meet them. I'm embracing the schedule this year. We are either going to put up or shut up. Go state!
I have found reason to dislike pretty much every team in the conference, so I almost always cheer against them. I used to cheer for Tech but I won't anymore since Leach is gone. Occasionally I'll cheer for one because I don't like the other team, or in a bowl game or the NCAA tournament. The two schools I won't cheer for under any circumstance are NU and K-State.
I do not cheer for Big 12 teams, and I don't feel bad about it. Don't buy the whole "perception" aspect because it is proved meaningless time and time again, unless you are in the top 10.
...as far as I'm concerned, they are all the enemy.
Agree with you on this. If we are ever consistently good, I might root for other conference opponents to do well out of conference because it would help our perception. Otherwise, I want them all to lose every game. This conference hasn't done much for us, not sure why we would root for them.
I have always rooted for the Big XII teams. But after this summer it is going to be tough to cheer for the Texas LongEgos.
I would like to see Nebby win all their nonconference games and lose all the in conference games, For CU I've always cheered against them vs CSU but generally for them the rest of the non conference and usually cheer for them against Nebby. This year I would like to see them hang an L on the Cornhusslers.
I would cheer for KSU generally all the time because we share a common historical perspective.
I won't cheer for UCLA in Basketball ever - well, MAYBE if they were playing EIU.
I used to always cheer for the Pac 10 team in the Rose Bowl back when it was them .vs. Big Ten.
No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.
