Accept the challenge. And even though I loathe Michigan, I hate it when any B10 team loses to non-conference opponents. I root for the B10 almost as much as OSU - mostly during the bowl season though. Because you're only as strong as your conference. I may get flamed for that, but it's true. But as for Guiliani sp? And the logic behind whose team is in which league seems illogical although someone can correct me on this if I'm wrong.
To answer the question: Most Florida fans look at me with bemusement. Even my wife: During the most recent basketball tournament championship game, she actually reminded me that I can't possibly appreciate this win in the same way she does. She didn't put it like that, but that was the gist of the discussion.
Who wouldn't want to be? And I say that with love and respect, obviously. Verbal- as the biggest gator homer on here i am all for Dan's allegiance to my team. He slurps them with the best of them. Also you can never root for your rival unless it makes things better for your team. It is tough but the only way sometimes to the top of the polls is to beat a top ten team which means you have to root for a conference rival to do well up til you play them.
Now FSU isn't as bad since they arent in our conference. Alright, after all this time I've never been compelled to really post a comment, but this post got me..

First, as for the notion of one's father being a large influence, while that may be true for a lot of people perhaps even 'most' people it was basically a non-factor for me and my brothers - our father even though he grew up in the South Bronx was never a sports fan. He only got interested in sports as we were kids and played in them - he'd come to all our games, but that was the extent of his interest in sports.
Whenever we'd scrape a couple bucks together we'd hop on the subway to go sit in the bleachers during the summer. We also became Giants fans, as most people in our neighborhood and family were. There's a very good chance if we had lived about five blocks to the south by Jersey City, we'd have become Jets fans - that was that neighborhood's team. You basically didn't live in our neighborhood and not root for the Irish, it was that simple.
It's hard to describe the sense of what it was all about to people who didn't grow up in that environment, but yes, being Irish Catholic played a huge role in why ND was, and still is, so beloved by everyone I grew up with. That strong allegiance, coupled with the fact that there was really no other big football school in the area no one then took Rutgers seriously - the big joke was which high schools - St. Peter's Prep mine , Bergen Catholic, etc, could beat them each year and that I also went to college at a school that not only was DIII, but it didn't even have a football team anyway.
The only thing that Dan says here that has always rubbed me the wrong way was his complete appearance of hatred of ND - he's never explained why he feels that way Anyway, to each their own I say.. I don't really agree with Dan's choice to become a Florida fan - it stinks of front-runner more than anything to me - but it doesn't make me mad, I just feel sorry for him.
Then I grew up and realized Dan the thing that bugs me about you liking the Gators is the homerism you show towards them. I know it has been mentioned but anything bad happens in football or basketball you look the other way. When Donovan waffled on his commitment to the Magic I do not recall you making a big stink about it. I do recall you raking Coach K over the coals for talking to the Lakers 3 years ago. I grew up in Ohio but did not root for any of the Ohio teams except the Browns.
My Dad grew up in Connecticut and rooted for the Red Sox and he passed that to my brother and me. He went to Duke grad school and loves the basketball team which I inherited, my brother went another way. I loved the option and Tom Osborne and when it came time to choose schools I choose Nebraska.
Football games - London Forum
I went to school there from ' and witnessed the greatest college football team ever in Re: the "Front-Runner" comment. Does it factor in that I picked the team up in -- cripes, it was the dawn of the Zook Era for god's sake -- and, in basketball, I suffered through annual NCAA Tournament flame-outs, right up until the two titles. They were a winning team football but hardly at the level of the reigning powers of the time though in '01, they were one hurricane-rescheduled game against Tennessee -- turned into a crushing loss -- from competing for a national title.
People seem to think I picked up Florida in '06 or '07, when they started winning titles. It happened before that, as mentioned in the essay. I continue to be addicted to the title-or-bust expectations, but at some point for basketball, immediately and for football, certainly not this season they won't win titles and this won't seem as awkward as it does now. Of course, Florida will win the football national title in Yes, I say that as a fan, but I will have higher expectations for next season's team than I will likely have for any team -- past or future -- in my life.
But I digress Anyone else like me, and picked their favorite team, in spite of their dad? I'm a huge Red Sox fan and I credit that largely to my absolute hatred of the Yankees, my dad's favorite team. On top of everyone here loving the Red Sox, the Yankees hatred really captured my black heart. Unfortunately, when I came to Boston the Patriots began to be great, so I still can't fully embrace them as my own, since I haven't endured any of the hard times with the team.
intranet.playzone.cz/profiles I should add that I grew up in the OC, so I never really had a football team, although I believe there are pictures of me when I was 3 with a Jim Everett T-shirt, but I think that might've been the last time I had much of a football loyalty before I came to Boston. Okay, since everyone is chiming in, fascinating topic btw, Dan I might as well too.
First of all, my teams all lifelong devotions are as follows: 1. Penn State I grew up 45 miles from the campus and starting going to games when I was 6. I've since obtained 2 degrees from PSU 2 The Steelers who my dad hates, he's an Eagles fan which has led to countless good natured arguments between us. The Red Sox again a heavy influence from my father. I was raised on stories of Ted Williams, who my father will argue to the death was the greatest hitter ever, and Yaz.
We've attended games to see the Sox in 7 different stadiums. The 76ers Due mostly to geography, but boy do they make it tougher to be a fan with every passing year. As for other sports, I have a passing interest in the Penquins mostly geography again but that is about it. I have a 12 year old son who I've passed down my interest in these teams to, as my father did for me. I've had the better of it in football while I practically have to hide in basketball season.
She has tried hard to turn my son against PSU but has been unsuccessful to this point you can't beat the gameday atmosphere at PSU. When we go to College Park, I take a ton of abuse from her Maryland friends and that is expected. It is also part of the fun. As for your Gator fandom, Dan, I've ripped you as much as anybody about it because it seems to hollow to those of us who have lived and died with the good and bad times of our teams.
Being a fan means staying with your guys no matter what. Especially when it's hard to do so, it makes the good times so much better. When you pick up a team because of your spouse it just seems so devoid of any meaning. What really irks me I suppose is your abandonment of N'western. How Dan can you do that? You said how much meant to you. What if they have a season like that next year? What will you do? I'm sorry Dan, nothing personal at all, but to me and I suspect many others here that is pathetic. You cannot abandon your alma mater no matter what unless they are D-2, or D-3, or something along those lines.
Then you can root for another D-1 team, but you better dare not root for another school within their classification. A great part of your development as a person takes place in college. You become part of the place and it becomes part of you. The beauty of being a fan especially of your school is their are usually ups and downs. That is when you are really a fan, Dan. When you can live through and truely appreciate those times. Oh, and Dan, if you were a little more objective where the Gators are concerned in your writing, it wouldn't hurt with us.
Saying things like "Reggie Nelson is the greatest defensive player I've ever seen, and "the Gators are the best college basketball team of the last 25 years" are so over the top that we just shake our collective heads, and can't possible take you seriously. Not only about UF but it extends to other things. I kill PSU hoops and to a lesser extent football all the time.
You see, when you call someone on another team you don't like a doucebag see J. Redick, Brady Quinn, and the Duke Lacrosse players and try to defend the idiotic behavior of Joakim Noah, it makes any argument you make little less convincing. Just trying to help Dan. I agree with Chris, Dan. As a Northwestern fan and alum, my big problem is your abandonment of NU for all-encompassing UF fandom. I've never seen anything like that season at NU, and the effect it had on my life I mean, some of my best and greatest memories of college are that year, with my friends, watching those games.
That is arguably one of the top 5 most miraculous, great seasons in college football history! The beauty of college fandom as opposed to other sports is that you can, to a certain degree, have multiple rooting interests. You would be perfectly appropriate calling yourself an NU and UF fan, because you have ties to both schools. Because college teams except when they're in the same conference, which would be fan bigamy rarely play each other, you CAN root for multiple teams The point, Dan, is you threw away one of the greatest seasons of all time NU's season and all the memories it gave to you for UF.
If you can sleep with that decision and, technically and literally, you do , that's your business. I grew up with a mom who loved sports His parents were the ones who lived 15 minutes from South Bend so that is the closest connection to him that I got in terms of fandom. We went to ND all the time when we visited them.
I was a Cowboys fan in warped by a best friend in elementary school and looooved Tony Dorsett. I still cheer them on and watch for their score on the scroll every week. I know they don't have a snowball's chance when they play Ohio State, so I remain neutral. I root for Rutgers because my cousins went there. I root against the Yankees because I don't like them. I liked Penn State before they joined the Big 10, so I follow them, and my friend lives in Happy Valley now so I have a tie to get there. My husband and I both bleed scarlet and gray.
