    Question regarding the Big 12 for all Fanatics

    Steve Deace got into a conversation yesterday morning on KXNO and I want your opinion on this. During bowl season, do you root for the Big 12?

    I like the conference to look good but it is nearly impossible for me to sit down and root for any team in the North. And the South...well they don't really give a rip about Iowa State so it goes on a team-by-team basis with them.

    We recruit against the northern teams so much. I like them having as little swagger as possible on the trail.

    Do you cheer for the Big 12? Yes or no...and why?

    Thanks a lot.

    Re: Question regarding the Big 12 for all Fanatics

    The teams I can root for are Colorado, Texas Tech, Texas A$M and Okie State. I want to see every other team fail miserably. Sometimes even to big 10 schools.

    Re: Question regarding the Big 12 for all Fanatics

    I root for, in order, ISU, Big 12, then sometimes (I'll admit it) Iowa. I used to have a hard time rooting for NU (ever), but want our conference to look good. The 4-4 bowl record is a little weak...

    Re: Question regarding the Big 12 for all Fanatics

    Depends on which schools and who they are playing. I would root for Baylor in a bowl if they made it, but otherwise it depends.

    Re: Question regarding the Big 12 for all Fanatics

    I can root for every Big 12 team -- EXCEPT Mizzou (Crybaby Pinkle after Mac's final win at ISU) and K-State (their fans are a mirror image of Hawk fans and I absolutely hate Snyder). I wouldn't have a problem rooting against Colorado if and when Hawkins takes them to a bowl game.

    Re: Question regarding the Big 12 for all Fanatics

    I don't have a Big 12 team I would root for outside of ISU. I just don't care or don't like most of these teams.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Question regarding the Big 12 for all Fanatics

    I root for ISU first, Big 12 second, whoevers playing Iowa, and then the small schools or any scenerio that would **** with the system because I hate the BCS.

    Re: Question regarding the Big 12 for all Fanatics

    I root for the Big 12 because it strengthens the arguement I make with my Hawk fan friends that the Big 12 is better than the Big 10.

    I don't care as much about football as I do about basketball, so that kind of clouds my judgement. Mostly, I cheer for the Big 12 teams. I don't have near the hatred for Neb FB as I do for say KU BB.

    Re: Question regarding the Big 12 for all Fanatics

    Yes, simply because I like to see the teams we play against do well. I especially root for the Big 12 against the SEC, (although that didn't work out too well this year). The SEC needs to be knocked down a peg or two and only a College Football World with a balanced Big 10/Big 12 can do so.

    I root for everybody except Nebraska. A man has to have some principles.

    Re: Question regarding the Big 12 for all Fanatics

    I pull for all the Big 12 schools during the non-conference and bowl season. A Big 12 school in the title game gave the conference a little credibility for having a mediocre regular season. I want to see schools like Oklahoma and Texas roll all their opponents because the time will come when we will beat them - it's just like Jenga, you spend so much time building the thing that when it gets too big it just falls apart. I hope we can roll both of them next season.

    The only teams in the BIG XII I'll root for are: Mizzou, OSU, Texas, A&M, Texas Tech and Baylor if they ever make it to a bowl.

    Re: Question regarding the Big 12 for all Fanatics

    I root for the Big 12 and Big Ten. ISU and Michigan take priority and I root for the Big 12 over the Big 10. I pretty much always root against the SEC because I hate the perceived gap between them and everyone else. I would hope over the past two bowl season people have seen maybe they are what everyone thinks. I also root for Oregon because I like CHip Kelly.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.
