Kind of ridiculous if you ask me. One thing to say "we" when you are talking Florida football. A whole different thing when you begin to claim a whole conference.

I find the tag along interesting. I compare it to NFL. Now according to the SEC boosters if the Broncos (my team) aren't in the running I should root for the Raiders or the Chargers.

I have enough Kansas/Missouri relatives that I could cheer for the Chiefs. But the Raiders? The Chargers? NFW.

But that is what rivalry is about, not kissing the ass of your "enemy."

Let me put it another (regional) way. If cu were playing BYU in the National Championship game I wouldn't watch. I wouldn't cheer as "my region" was finally getting its due.

Hell, I'd probably look at moving to Australia.

but judging by the peeps here, SEC fans don't understand rivalry.

Hold it a minute! I thought the only team NS liked from Florida was FAU. No?

He said if an SEC team wins the Championship its much like Florida winning the Championship.

Well, I see your point Jurgen but...

I've ALWAYS rooted for SEC schools when they play out of conference. I was brought up that way by my Dad. I don't know exactly why it started but the logic was if the conference team won it would be a benefit to the whole conference. I despise Florida and Auburn but I pulled for both schools as if I was an alumn when they played for the title against other conferences. I rooted for Auburn over Clemson and 'Bama over Michigan in the first week this year and so on. However, I do not pull for Georgia Tech, FSU or any of the other conferences schools even if they're in the south. So it's not exactly a regional thing. The same logic does NOT apply to professional sports for me. I root against the other teams in the NL East in favor of my Braves. The other SEC schools are like brothers in my eyes. If brothers are fighting it get's vicious but if you fight someone that has brothers you'll have to fight them all. It doesn't make total sense but there's a sense of SEC pride that predates the 6 straight titles, I promise.

I'll go one step further. In 2010 I was certain that Auburn cheated to get Cam Newton and I was so disgusted with the dirty play of Nick Fairley that I would've hit him with my truck (the only fair fight). I felt like their whole season should be erased and the program should get the death penalty. I still pulled for Auburn over Oregon. I wanted the SEC to win on the field. Crazy huh?

Breaking news: ND to join ACC. Both parties still irrelevant.

So instead you went to NOLA and got yourself a VooDoo doll and have been creating havoc since? Nice job by they way, they suck now.
