    I cant decide if i want to root for CSU against mizzery.

    For:
    We beat CSU so it undoubtedly establishes our superiority over Mizzery if the blow them out.
    MIzzery is from the SEC
    West coast teams don't get their due
    I kind of like Eustachey
    SEC=ESPN=Bad

    Against:
    They are CSU

    It only makes CU look good for the next 12 hours. We need to win tomorrow to look good, and to help the PAC12 establish that it's indeed an underrated conference this year.

    I am nervous about that, we were the only Pac-12 team to win a tourney game last year, I don't want to be the only one who doesn't win one this year.

    Stay with the "it's CSU" sentiment. **** them.

    I picked the Lammies, mostly because Louisville stands a much better of delivering the massive dose of shut the **** up humiliation their fanbase needs to receive on a regular basis than Mizzou does. Aside from the obvious, my biggest issue in rooting for them is that I find I am enjoying the Mountain West's oh-fer they've got going so far. A 5-0 Pac-12 start and 0-5 MWC showing would be fun (although my bracket would be ****ed if UNM goes down, since I have them in the Final 4...)

    Yeah... I like seeing the MWC failing. Best conference in the country my ass. Pac12>MWC and always will be. Little brother conference.

    They're a good team and they're rolling right now - but i expect them to get smacked against Louisville

    I seriously don't understand how any Buff could root for Mizzou against anyone ... even CSU ... given the history between us and them in both football and basketball ... and what their guv said about us upon our exit from the Big XII.

    just sayin'

    I picked Mizzou, other than that, I'd want CSU to win. When state of Colorado basketball is strong, it's better for everyone.

    Hmmm. Rooting against CSU. If they win a game, and we go one and done, they will be insufferable--just like we were last year. Sure we beat them head-to-head this year, but it won't matter.

    If I knew for sure we would win ours, I would root for CSU.

    At the end of the day, I'm pretty sure the result isn't dependent on how I root. Which is bull****, in my opinion.

    CSU, easily.

    It's better for the state of hoops in Colorado if we have at least two teams that have some success.

    Okay. There's something else.

    I was an out-of-state student, so I don't really get the whole CSU thing.

    But I see these CSU fans brimming with animosity toward CU that exceed the threshold of civility. I had to deal with it following the RMS this year. Not one, "good game" but instead literally hundreds of fans spewing **** in my direction. AFTER the game. I expect some fans to behave that way--certainly the students--but it was all of them.

    Meanwhile, CU fans seem to generally root for CSU and seem to feel a little brotherly affection for them. I don't get it. Those guys routinely behave like assholes toward CU. I don't feel the need to root for them for the benefit of the state.

    I usually pull for the MWC teams since my wife went to UNM but I can't get myself to pull for CSU.

    Also, a report from someone at the game:

    Mark Ennis ‏@Mengus22 3m Bad omen: the Colorado State Ram mascot just ate it as the team came back onto the court.

    We need a video of this...

    3) Little brother fan base

    You want to cheer for Front Range basketball? Fine, root for the Zoomies and Pios, I do. But the sheep and their insufferable fans can kiss my ass and lack my hole before I EVER consider rooting for them.

    I hate both teams but a Lammies win would help our RPI. That's how I've decided the last 5 months why change now.:lol:
