Not adopting Drake...but hope they have a great experience...why not? Save the "hate" for things that matter in life...the tournament is fun! More fun with ISU is in the field but it is still fun! Enjoy!

My brother played football at Drake so I have always had a soft spot for the bulldogs since I spent a lot of time on campus. Plus this year they have been a lot of fun to watch!

Sure.

I don't really pick a team ahead of time. I suspect that I'll find a couple of teams to cheer for as I watch the games. Maybe Georgetown, they are a good story.

I'll be rooting for Drake. Good for them to be respected enough to be selected.

Michigan was my 'adopted' team and I'll still watch them but with Livers questionable/out it's going to be tough for them.

I'll watch but only hope to see a good game. Drake HC comes from a family of Hawk fans and I know that shouldn't matter but it does a little bit for me.

As a UNI alum and fan, it's kind of weird for me to write that I'll be cheering for them, but I will be.

The UNI/Drake rivalry has gotten downright nasty and personal in some respects the last few years, but DeVries is a UNI alum and it would be good for the MVC financially and otherwise for both Drake and Loyola to do well in the tournament.

I'll be rooting for them. I'm always behind an underdog, so I'd pry be rooting for them even if I weren't from Iowa.

I'll root for Drake because they'll make a nice underdog story.

My in-laws are all Oklahoma graduates, and one of my best friends is an Arkansas graduate, so I'll cheer for the Sooners and Razorbacks, too.
