Interesting choices.

Personally, I can find individual athletes pretty easy to like, even if they're not playing on one of my "favorite" teams. It's fans and coaches I dislike. Too, I find specific approaches (Duke's penchant for flopping, Cub management acceptance of losing for 100 years, St. Louis holier-than-thou attitudes, Pittsburgh's willingness to play dirty in football) difficult. They definitely color my perception of those teams.

For example, for the first time in 20 years, I'm having a hard time really disliking Jim Calhoun. I'll likely not like him later, as he's pretty easy to dislike-- he's irascible, arrogant, sarcastic, and a cheater and liar. But he's hurt. So... yeah. He gets a bit of a pass.

On the flip side, I used to like OSU quite a bit in both basketball and football. But, in light of recent allegations and the actions of their fans, I find it hard to root for them in any sport. I also really liked Xavier (and went to 25 or so games over a five-year period, including three A-10 Tourneys). But the interview after the UC fight pretty much ruined my feel for the Musketeers. (I never liked Cincinnati, so that was easy. As a child, I remember Tony Yates taking the air out of the ball in 1984 when playing Kentucky-- my favorite team at the time. The final score-- 24-11-- made me hate UC.)

Odd how that works, I think.

Where to begin:

MLB:
Favorite: Reds
Least Favorite: Cardinals, Cubs, Braves, Red Sox

I actually respect the Yankees. They have the money, but they have the mystique and tradition to make up for it. The Red Sox complain about the Yankees, but spend the second most in payroll far above the third highest team.

NFL:
Favorite: Bengals
Least Favorite: Ravens, Steelers, Patriots
Least Favorite Players: The Mannings

Of all of my teams, the Bengals I would probably switch. That being said, I can't jump on the Colts bandwagon because of the Mannings. With the Bengals success, I'm back in the fold for now.

NBA:
Favorite: Celtics, any team with a UK player making a sizable contribution
Least Favorite: Lakers

I don't really follow the NBA, but the Celtics I grew up loving for some reason. Also liked the Bulls when MJ played but quit following thereafter. Never did like the Lakers.

NCAA:
Favorite: Kentucky, Marshall
Least Favorite: Ohio State, West Virginia, Louisville, Duke (in basketball)

I've lived in West Virginia for almost nine years and while I do respect most of the WVU posters on this forum, most of the fans are downright conspiracy theorists with an "it's us against the world" mentality. It's never WVU's fault if they lose a game and everybody from the refs to ESPN is to blame.

Louisville is obvious. Duke for the media hype. I watched Duke-FSU last night and Dick Vitale went nanners because a FSU player pounded his chest after dunking on Duke. I actually respect Thad Matta and the basketball program, just can't get how the fans turned Jim Tressel into the second coming of Pete Rose.

I don't follow the NBA at all anymore. When I did I never really had a favorite team. I did follow the Kentucky Colonels in the old ABA many years ago. I listened to them on WHAS when it would come in but when the ABA disbanded I never really picked up a favorite team.

Does any one else here follow college hockey? UND Hockey is really the only competitive sports team in North Dakota, so it's pretty popular around here. (NDSU also has a good football team, they are the defending FCS Champions)

Your analogy of WVU fans is my analogy of Marshall fans. Also add with the Marshall fans:

"It was a moral victory."
"Its doesn't matter if we lose all of our games as long as we beat WVU-our obsession of envy."

and my personal favorite Marshall fan's qoute...

"We played good with them for a half!" :lol:

I always heard WVU didn't believe in moral victories. The LSU game proved otherwise. WVU got blown out in Morgantown yet they ran up 533 total yards on the "best defense in the nation".

If that isn't the definition of a moral victory, I don't know what is.

I'll always say the Friend of Joe Bowl was played five years too late. I think it would be best for both teams to do away with the series and see what happens if the two ever meet in a bowl game and Marshall comes out with the win. That's how Kentucky and Louisville started playing in basketball on a yearly basis.

I know what you saying about the LSU game, but I was one of the fans that said we lost, plain and simple. There are NO good losses, I don't care if you are the 0-10 team playing the #1 team in the nation, there is NOTHING, and I mean NOTHING good about a loss. So in reality I could care less that WVU put up 500 and some odd yards against LSU because the end result was a Loss. Yes I have ZERO respect for MooU football, their fans gave me this snobbish attitude, I truly hate their program.

The FOJB was not 5 years too late, WVU would have dominated that game no matter the decade. The level of athletes from both institutions were and always will be on different levels. Its kind of like putting a Class A high school JV team against a Class AAA powerhouse, the outcomes will be predictable.

You're probably the only one who said that. I've heard the LSU defense so many times from WVU fans it isn't funny. Not to mention the Fighting Dale Gribble's who claimed LSU was faking injuries to kill momentum.

Last I remember, Marshall put a scare into WVU back in 1997 in Morgantown. Marshall at the time was a QB factory with Chad Pennington and Byron Leftwich while WVU fans were waiting for Don Nehlen to hang it up. Given how down WVU was during the late 90's and how successful Marshall was during that time, I believe Marshall would have likely won a game or two, especially in Huntington.

Now I do believe LSU was faking injuries that game, but do I think it was a conspiracy against WVU, not necessarily, because I seem to see it in EVERY game I watch. Those dudes sell these injuries every chance they get to kill momentum, get a timeout, or just take a breather.

You know what bugs me? Any fan base that has a sense of entitlement. I know that doesn't apply to every fan of a certain team, but there are those teams that have had a certain level of success and their fans tend to act like it's their God given right to win championships. I have a few friends who are UK fans and the attitude I hear is that if they don't win the whole thing this year then something's wrong; the sun rose in the west and God is no longer on His throne.

I know not everyone in their fan base is like that, and I'll have to admit that some of my fellow OSU football fans have been known to think like that (despite the small number of recent championships) but that attitude stinks and usually makes me root for that team to lose. I guess that comes from rooting mostly for teams that haven't had that level of success and I don't view a championship as a right but as an extremely exciting thing that doesn't happen that often and when it does you cherish it.
