    No. CU only. I could care less about every other school, except for DU in hockey.

    Since :rip:cornholio:rip: and Cu are parting ways, it will now be whoever is playing Nutered Dame. Also, really like the Zoomies.

    Maryland, but that is mostly basketball since I grew up watching Gary. I could care less about other football programs

    Last year my roommate from college was one of Rutgers's assistant coaches, so I would say I rooted for them at the time

    I'm a grad student at Florida now, so #2 for me would be the Gators...CU will always be #1 for me though

    ...and I also root for DU in hockey since CU doesnt have an NCAA hockey team yet...

    Nah. There isn't another team I'd go out of my way to watch if they were televised. I do pull for the local DII teams though.

    Is it too late for me to get on the South Carolina bandwagon? I hear good things about them.

    Born and raised in Greeley and attended CU for a couple of years, so CU is in my blood. But graduated from ASU as a commuter student, so they are a distant 2nd. My ears perk up every time I hear about the Scottsdale CC Artichokes. :)

    1. CU by a mile
    2. Whoever's playing NU, USC, Notre Dame, Michigan, Tennessee
    3. Close games. I love watching college games to see passion, and good (or horrendous) plays, big hits, big miscues etc. I enjoy it and frankly want whoever is losing to come back and make a play to win, but I'm equally happy when the winning team makes some plays to hold off the other team.
    4. Penn State (where I'm from), Georgia (where my parents currently live), Florida (When the ol' ball coach was there, still have a soft spot for a team that won't take a knee, ghandi didn't)

    This. Also, I have a special place in my heart for Illinois. Although the Illini are a distant second to my Buffs, I attended my very first game in Champaign when I was little and seeing the Chief was really cool.

    Used to be SMU when I was a kid. Now I really dont think I have one. Although, there are some teams I enjoy watching like Bama and a few others.

    I grew up an SMU fan as well, Luke. My parents met at SMU. If it weren't for SMU, I would not exist. :lol:

    When I was a kid I was a USC fan and over time I watched them with interest but that has waned over the years. Really now it is CU and then not much interest.

    Having graduated from HS in Dallas, kinda pulled for UT but NO MORE!

    I'd definitely have to say Hawai'i after having season tickets for the undefeated 2007 season with Colt Brennan. They have a lot of fun with football in the islands and the game day experience, while different, was really cool.
    Hoping I win the lottery in the next couple months so I can go to the game in HNL next year.

    :lol: I had to think about that one for a second!

    Since we were Methodists, there was one game where Methodist churches from all over the state took kids to the game. I road from San Angelo to The Cotton Bowl on a bus with a bunch of kids. I was around 8. The game was SMU vs Navy. Some guy named Roger Staubauch was the Navy QB. I was also a pretty big Navy fan growing up since my old man and grandpa were in the Navy. My old man turned down a chance to go to the Naval Academy. My old man was also a high school teamate and friend of Doak Walker.

    My dad was a Purdue alum, I wouldn't call them my second favorite, but I do root for them to win.
