    2nd Team?

    Who else here has taken to following a second, slightly less depressing team this basketball season? Don't get me wrong I will still go out of my way to watch ISU, men or women, before anybody else but I have also taken to watching a lot of Syracuse games. I know many on here will probably get on my case and I'm supposed to hate them and all, but they are pretty fun to watch. So, who else has ended up following a second team this season?

    You suck!

    I'm kidding. They are fun to watch even though I'd like to see wesley take a pass off the face.

    Ummm...I am also a fan of DePaul (always have been since watching their games on WGN growing up in the 80s)! How sad is that...DePaul's program is in worse shape than ISU's! Not good...

    That's terrible. I thought I had it bad this weekend with the combined Cyclones/Vikings letdowns.

    I love to watch Texas. If not playing ISU, I usually root for them.

    well, my other team was/is/always will be Indiana. Of course, that has not been a comforting second team to be a fan of in recent years.....

    Re: 2nd Team?

    I'm not going to make any friends with this post, but I've always had a soft spot for Duke. I wanted to see us kick their *** this year, but other than that, I usually take to rooting for the Blue Devils.

    No kidding...the only positive thing regarding DePaul in the past 2+ years is that we just beat Marquette! That is the game that if we are only going to win 1 conference game in 2 seasons...wait...it still doesn't make me feel good about the program!

    Re: 2nd Team?

    Texas, Syracuse and sometimes UConn. These teams are fun to watch and have been fun to watch for a few years. Flame me if you want but I liked watching Syracuse before Wes got there. All the coaches are awesome as well.


    Hooray for Metaphors!

    Re: 2nd Team?

    I will say, that I got on the Syracuse bandwagon during the Big East tourney last year and continued when I wanted to see how WJ was doing out of sheer curiousity.

    Re: 2nd Team?

    Been a Georgetown fan my whole life, before I was an ISU fan even. That's all I have right now. Michigan sucks, ISU is not a lot better, but Georgetown keeps me sane with the exception of last night.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    Re: 2nd Team?

    I've had a soft spot for the 'Cuse ever since Wayne-O coached here and I love their zone defense… but I just can't watch them this year. It's tough to see WJ in another uniform.

    Besides ISU, I have always rooted for Syracuse basketball/Boeheim. I just can't do it this year. I probably will again once WJ is gone.

    Re: 2nd Team?

    seriously, what is with all the Cuse fans? Taking WJ out of the mix, it is kinda odd that a bunch of fans in the midwest are such big fans of a team in NY.
