Just pointing out the similarities between the trolls! It's cold outside shouldn't you be tucked safely under your bridge? FYI, I post what I want to post and it has nothing to do with "bait". You on the other hand. I love the comment about you reading. That's hilarious! You reading...now that would truly be something to see!

Who do you root for if your teams not playing? Do you always root for teams in your conference against any other team? How about arch rivals? As a USC fan my hopes for each season start out with National Champion expectations, barring that a Rose Bowl bid, if they don't make that I have little interest in any of the other hundred or so bowl games, most are meaningless. The next most important thing for me is to beat UCLA and Notre Dame. This year was a total bust so I'll watch other teams play in some of the prestige bowls, Cotton, Orange, etc. Now I hate UCLA and Notre Dame, but I respect them and will root for them in a bowl game, as I will for Stanford, Washington or Arizona State, but Oregon bugs me so much I'll root against them. Non of this is logical, but I guess that's why we are all so different, it's all individual.
How about you guys, what's your preference?
I will always root for my Horns..I like watching the Aggies play just so I can talk to my brother about it later...Never been a conference homer, for example the Oklahoma vs Alabama game, I just want to see a good game,same goes for the FSU vs Auburn game....always enjoy watching Notre Dame getting their tails kicked..I like certain coaches and might pull for them in certain games (Meyer, Muschamp,Harsin,Mora Jr. Sarkesian,Saban)
though i duck hunt alone a couple of days a year i don't enjoy quiet, solitary hunting. deer hunting is just not my cup of tea. i like a ten man duck blind, a wagon full of quail hunters or a big pheasant drive with blockers. when a person says, "i was a member of john's hunting party!", it is my hope they mean it literally. i like to shock people by serving 8 hot breakfasts cooked on stove on a dog stand in a timber hole and never miss a volley while doing it! that said i was impressed by the very big deer and limit of big ducks you posted the pic of. i have killed deer while duck hunting, but never one with antlers.
i am a conference homer. pulling for sec teams is my norm. my last week of pics had auburn over mizzou. my intension was to pull for auburn. but once the game started i was all mizzou, it just didn't feel right. i will pull for auburn over fsu......i think?
i like to see the traditional powers(from my youth) do well. i like to see strong seasons by the likes of southern cal, oklahoma, nebraska, texas, ohio state, michigan and even notre dame. i had an uncle who would take me to knoxville to tennessee games a couple of times a year as a kid. as a result i am a closet vol fan.
I usually like to see my conference win. Why not?
Winning helps the Conference and makes the gauntlet tougher.
The tougher the gauntlet is to get thru, the better the team is if it makes it through.
Thus the success of the SEC Teams in the Big Game against other OOC Teams.
I could watch Ohio St, Oregon, Notre Dame, Oklahoma & USC lose every Saturday,
never turn the channel and enjoy every snap of it.
When it comes to THIS year's BCSNCG. I'm torn.
I don't much care for the 8 in a row, b/c I don't much care for Auburn.
I do like Jimbo and liked watching the Noles' growing up too.
I'm not sure I'll root for FSU, but I wouldn't be upset if they won.
I could watch the Cowboys, Patriots, Jets, Panthers and Titans lose every game too and love it.
However, at times I find myself at odds with that.
We clearly watch these kids from High-School Recruits,
through College and then finally to the big stage of the NFL.
So I liked to watch Games with my phone or tablet in hand
so I can keep track of WHO from LSU is playing in whatever game I'm watching.
Considering the LSU players on some of these teams, there is a conflict of interest at times
I like the Seahawks, b/c I like Lynch and Carroll. Thomas and Sherman are lights out too. I like Defensive Teams.
I also watch a good bit of Wilson in College too. Now waiting to see if Simon and Ware will get a shot to play next year maybe?
I like a lot of other NFL teams too. It usual has to do with the Players though.
LSU not playing in a major bowl this season has me excited about the New Orleans Bowl. UL Ragin Cajun vs the Tulane Green Wave led by Nick Montana. Both programs are headed in the right direction and the Superdome will be soldout. Dec 21st in N O is going to be one gigantic tailgate party!
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

FTR : I was a big Gene Chizik fan too, because he built one heck of a championship defense while at UT, he lost the team at Auburn but recruited many of the kids currently on the team, it aint all Malzahn
