"I AND MY BROTHER AGAINST MY COUSIN, I AND MY COUSIN AGAINST THE WORLD"

I always liked that line - sports, politics, life in general. I could never see rooting against our own arch-rivals when they go up against whoever from wherever else in the country/world.

Specifically now, I'm referring to the Big Ten - basketball in this case. My Badgers are off to a great start. I lost my voice yelling at the TV about the God damned officials trying to steal the game from them - that mugging over the back of Gasser with a minute to go the worst of it. However, I was just about as happy to see Michigan State which I hate, and Izzo who I worse than hate beat #1 overrated Kentucky.

GO BADGERS! Go Big Ten!

Down with the OVERRATED S.E.C and A.C.C in football and basketball.

Jackson and our press break more than the officials lead to the Gators coming back.. my kids JV team run a more effective press package.. leave Jackson get hung out in the trap without help was the start. Jackson taking his damn time and basically walking into the traps was another.

Yes.. even though I hope we can knock them off, it was good for the Big Ten to feast a bit on the SEC in Basketball.. now if we can catch them in the pigskin. Badgers have a shot at putting the landscape on notice next season vs LSU in Houston could be a start.

Bama and LSU in 2016 at Lambeau as well.. lets dance.

Someone else once said "they enemy of your enemy is your friend" If a team is my arch rival I will root against them at all times (unless a victory by them helps my team of course)

Then again Howard Taylor (whoever the heck he is ) said "The enemy of my enemy is my enemy's enemy. No more. No less." so you got that to think about as well.



I fully respect your right to have your opinion but that doesn't mean I agree with it or respect you for having it.

When it comes to college sports, and football in particular, it helps for your conference to do well. So I general, albeit begrudgingly cheer for rival Big Ten teams when they play out of conference. Except Ohio State. Fuck them. There I'll cut off my noise to spite my face.

When it comes to the NFL, I hope the Bears go 14-2 with their only two losses to the Pack, be on the cusp of ending their 27 year drought (long may it continue), build up their wildest dreams and hopes; only for the Packers to deliver the fatal, devestating blow to their playoff lives. The fall hurts much more from the top, and I'm willing to deal with their bullishness during the season (and I live in chicago) only to see them so completely and utterly crushed at the end of the year.

I can see the benefit in the college game but since I don't really care about it I don't really think about it in that way. If I don't like team I done' like them and I want them to lose.

I do think you may need to be careful with your feelings towards the Bears however. If those thoughts ever made it into an official psychological evaluation you may be in for a rather startling diagnosis. Its borderline sadistic to say the least...and I like it.
