    After ISU, who do you root for in the Big 12?

    I am tired of all this Hawk talk. Anyone want to talk Big 12? I am curious who people root for in the conference, other than ISU. It can be any sport or for any other reason. I think a lot of us probably have affiliations, either as fans, professionals, or relatives, with other Big 12 schools.

    Having lived in Austin for a little while, I am going to say Texas. Sure, it is easy to root for them because they are good at everything and they are filthy rich. But they generally run clean programs and have pretty class people in charge. Rick Barnes and Mack Brown are both upstanding gents, and their athletics facilities, campus, and eye candy are top-notch.

    Poll forthcoming...

    I went with no preference, because outside of iowa state, I just cheer for a good game to watch

    Texas. It was chilly for the football game last fall, but their cheerleaders kept me warm.

    Kansas. I enjoyed watching them play football last year, and really like Mangino as a coach.

    You can't help but like watching Self's teams either, just exciting basketball

    Re: After ISU, who do you root for in the Big 12?

    First I would say it has to be a team from the south. I use to say Oklahoma, mostly because of the Big 8 connection. But more recently I am starting to like Texas, mostly because of Mack Brown. I also enjoyed watching Jamal Charles play last year. I usually always pull for Baylor when they are not playing ISU too.

    Re: After ISU, who do you root for in the Big 12?

    I guess I'd have to go with Texas. But other programs I like are A&M, Texas Tech and Kansas.

    I'm really hoping KU can repeat what they did in football last season. Except against us, of course. :)

    I went Baylor. I have a soft spot for the underdog, which is likely the reason I chose the Cyclones over the Hawkeyes growing up.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Texas what's there not to love about Austin and would have to say their fans have been nothing but overly nice when talking and tailgating with them.

    Re: After ISU, who do you root for in the Big 12?

    This is tough....I can say I hate Mizzou with the passion of a million suns!!!!

    Nebraska? I can't say I hate them, I hope they beat all the South teams but lose to everyone in the North besides Mizzou.

    Colorado? I could care less....

    KState? What a joke of an AD Department, but I give props to their women's basketball coach for copying Fennlly's approach to building a program.

    I guess that leaves KU....I love Mangino, I knew he would get it done....Self? Good for him, I think he underachieved at Illinois and underachieved his 2nd year at KU, but he coached the hell out of those guys towards the end of this past season.

    I despise all teams in the Big XII South.

    I am surprised that Texas is pulling in 44% of the vote thus far, I would have expected more people to have a hatred for the South, what with all the revenue sharing and TV issues. I guess people are saving their venom for Bob Stoops.
