That explains it. College football is completely different.

I love both teams but I will say that I only watch LSU when there is a meaning SEC game or a games that means something to the polls. I always watch the Saints.



Why does anybody have to be 100% fan to like a winner? I would say I am a casual LSU fan because I just don't have the time or desire to watch so many meaningless games against weak opponents. But if LSU becomes #1 and beats Alabama in Alabama, that is historic and worth watching even if you are a fan of another SEC team. I will watch the rest of the SEC games. Call me a closet fan. I'm still loving this.

Pretty much the same for me. I will always watch NC State if I can get the game. We did watch LSU/Alabama, but other than that I'm usually busy doing other stuff on Saturday.. But, I watch every minute of every Thursday, Sunday Night and Monday Night game. I watch every minute of every Saints game and watch portions of every other game on the Sunday Ticket game mix switching audio from game to game. Even when the Saints are playing I switch to game mix during every commercial.

A fake fan is one who only supports winning teams, and constantly jumps from one team to another. We call those bandwagon fans. I know you're familiar with the term. For me, my Dad went to LSU and I grew up watching LSU with him. I never went there, but they are the state school, and I've always loved them and do not pull for any other college team.

So if you have a problem with me calling myself an LSU fan, then I have a problem with you calling yourself a Saints fan. And for you to say "it wasn't like that in North Carolina" is bull crap. Yeah, you have more major universities there, but if you think that all fans of those teams went to those colleges, you are lying to yourself.

So I have a great idea, to remove all confusion. Why don't we all just pull for whoever we want to, and why don't you just find something else to complain about.
I never went to college/university and always consider myself the smartest person in the room...except when other people are in there and spoil my moment!

HI THERE! how you been???
We had a great time yesterday, and you should join our next Saints party.

You know? I'm kinda there, also Guido. I know guys who went to ULL, but they're all LSU, and I'm just kind of like... ?
But this is America. People have the right to cheer whatever they want. I'm not the Sports Police.
Plus, as FF pointed out, his daughter went to LSU, and prob. some of his money, so he can drive a purple and gold van, if he wants. My daughters are Aggies, and I know lots of A&M people, and it is a big deal, and I think its cool. There might be other associations for some people also. I spent a lot of time near Natchitoches, so I'd definitely root for Northwestern. Im getting a lot of customers who went to schools like Sam Houston State and McNeese. I admire people who get all into these kind of schools. If I went to Nichols St, you couldnt shut me up about it. So, salute to Thibodaux people.
I never could really get all into college, because of the disparity, the playoff system, or lack of, and also, I find the overtime bizarre. But mostly the disparity. Huge schools, with big sports budgets. Small schools with no chance. I just dont see how that's fun. I always like the underdog in college, but I know next to nothing about college football.
Of course, the atmosphere is the best thing about the college game, and all the rivalries, and hype, and LOYALTY.
I have a million friends who are all about LSU, and they dont know that I'm not so much. I feel like the gay guy at the office - where people are talking sports, when people come up to me, and say, "omg did you see that crap last night?" I'm just like, "How do I feel? I feel so betrayed, bewildered...." (anyone remember that movie line?) But these are my friends, so if LSU makes them happy, I'm glad too. Tiger Stadium is certainly an exciting place. I've actually circled it on the way to NOLA, just to hear the crowd and music, so maybe I do have somewhat an LSU Thing.

But nothing gives me a happy, glowing Monday morning, like a Saints win.

Re: God and the Saints?

I'm pulling for LSU to win the SEC Championship and the National Championship just like the Saints winning the playoffs and the Superbowl because my family and friends have been watching the SEC as long as the Saints.

Love a good football party with my best friends.

Yea God, Santa, and Puff the magic dragon have such an influence on sports.
All fiery tales and made up stories to keep kids in line.
Glad you didn’t say Jesus because I would like to rip that numb nuts a new one.
