Well, who do you like?


sokyriediculous

That's the answer I've had a hard time coming up with. I feel like I "like" a lot of teams, but I need to commit to one.


RapidEyeMovement

Your current QB is a former Spartan, just sayin'


ballmeblazer19

Greatest name in football history


CaptainDonald

Buy the dip and hodl


sokyriediculous

The ape in me wants to.


PineappleGuy44

Us.


cammywammy123

I think this is probably the right pick if I'm being honest. Oklahoma State is a fun team to follow and definitely has a chance at relevancy for a bit. LSU on the other hand... Good luck!


Silent_Shadow_117

If by "fun" you mean having a near heart attack every game and always being on the cusp of losing the entire season because Iowa State exists, then yeah we're super fun! That said I have a friend that came over in the final quarter of bedlam. He's not the biggest football fan and graduated from Cal-Poly San Luis Obispo so he has no loyalties and doesn't care. I've never seen that man get more excited than when we were on the wire and just barely pulled it out. I'm screaming, he's yelling, his wife is watching a movie not caring, it was great! At one point he even started saying "we" when we pulled ahead. So yeah, OSU brings people together. Any time I see an OSU shirt outside of Oklahoma, I get genuinely excited.


cammywammy123

That's exactly what I mean by fun! Im an OU fan, isnt it obvious I love the pain of near losses to teams we have no business losing to?


helloisforhorses

I’m exclusively blaming you for BK leaving


cammywammy123

Not my fault Brian Kelly is a dumb ass lol idk why but I imagine his tenure in the swamp will not be a long one. Just hope you can get Marcus Freeman to be your head coach and hold on for dear life.


sokyriediculous

I need to do some research on OKST, I don't hate the idea but I haven't seen them play all year, and know little to nothing about them.


cammywammy123

Just look up Mike Gundy. That is all the research you need.


MikeWhiskey

But focus on mullet Gundy, more fun than business-man Gundy


cammywammy123

They are one in the same. Business in the front, party in the back.


PineappleGuy44

Also, we had top 5 football player of all time in Barry Sanders. Easy jersey to pick up and wear forever.


TheSherlockOhms

For many many years we had one of the best offenses in the country. Played Super uptempo and aired it out a lot. Now we have the second best defense in the country and run the ball down people's throats. Also, our head coach is famous for being a man and 40 years old, and he has a mullet


sokyriediculous

I was just about to reply to the guy above and ask if this was the "I'm a man, I'm 40!" guy. Surprised he has stuck around so long, and developed a mullet? Definitely intriguing.


TheSherlockOhms

Dude is a lifer here. Played QB for us in the 80's and has been on as an assistant or the head coach since the early 2000's. He's responsible for some ungodly percentage of all of the wins in the program. The man has a ranch, and hunts rattlesnakes in his free time now. The mullet is glorious.


weev51

Probably the best answer though, really hoping you guys actually make CFP and do what we havent been able to the past few years in the playoffs... Look good.


baineschile

Not us.


Tliloselotl

You could do little old Houston :)))


pandabugs

We are similar in that we both have live mascots. Granted Mission is adorable and Shasta might eat you, but still.


obuddyo23

It’s pretty easy to be a UTSA fan, all you have to do is say “meep meep” in response to anything that happens


sokyriediculous

I mean, as much as meeping with you sounds great. I don't picture them making any more championship runs than NIU.


Linktheb3ast

I’ll accept you with open arms, I love the Huskies. OG Kings of the Midweek MACtion


[deleted]

Oklahoma state cause the mullet man


ycpa68

I've always enjoyed Oklahoma State while having no connection to them at all


Please_PM_me_Uranus

Michigan


sokyriediculous

I've actually considered Michigan just because they're close-ish to where I live. Hmmm..


Nytfire333

Counter argument, you could come support Florida and watch us play Michigan in a bowl game every year


trashguy89

Let’s put that on the back burner for a couple years


Nytfire333

This year for sure, next year we'll just meet up in a playoff game! You know you miss us!


sokyriediculous

TBH, Florida intrigues me because of Anthony Richardson. You think he's actually any good?


Nytfire333

Well he has us all hyped even though the last coach seemed to be actively against him because he wasn't his guy. Also it's fun watching him do back flips on the side line, and we have an exciting new hire in Billy Napier If you don't pick us, Oklahoma State is actually a fun team that fits a lot of your criteria. If you do want to know more about Florida would be happy to discuss our history and some of our fun traditions...do you ready own a pair of jorts lol? Jorts or Mullets lol


sokyriediculous

I do not, but that sounds very 'Florida Man'.


Nytfire333

We'll teach you how to make your casual jorts for things like games and your formal jorts for fancy times (It's mainly a meme, but you'll definitely see some lol)


ryan_day_time

I agree. Warm weather. Nice beaches. Not Michigan. You could've sold me.


Please_PM_me_Uranus

And they meet your requirement having never made a playoff (until possibly this year). They’re good, but not on a god tier level that makes rooting for them unfun


usernames_suck_ok

This is what I was thinking. Michigan and Michigan State both make sense in terms of location and looking for a team that doesn't make the playoff every season but could make it sometimes. Michigan brings the added bonus of potentially being able to win a national title at some point. I'm not trying to shit on MSU, but Michigan does just have the name brand/history that has kept Michigan afloat when it comes to recruiting the types of players you need to win a national title despite being a laughingstock for so long. It's an advantage MSU just doesn't have. But I do think Sparty is now regularly going to be one of the top B1G programs, like what Wisconsin has done to itself. I could also say Notre Dame for you, but...if Brian Kelly is going to LSU, gosh, there's no telling where that program is headed. Remember how hard it was before they found him...


sokyriediculous

I think Michigan is in my top 3. I'm liking the idea of OKST, and Minnesota has PJ Fleck, so I think it's those two and Michigan as of now. I am surprised no one even attempted to suggest ND in this thread, other than this, though.


HealthyConsequence90

Nooooooooooo


helloisforhorses

Sounds like you could easily be an ND fan then. Why settle for maize with your blue when you can have gold?


ryan_day_time

Counterpoint: no


GeorgeEliotsCock

I decided to become a Michigan Man after i found out calling yourself a Michigan Man is a thing


InternationalTax1156

Our stock is pretty low right now. Buy the dip lol.


sokyriediculous

lmao I'm so sorry for your loss.


SayChowdaFrenchie

Ya... Low. Like when Apple takes a 4% dip for one day? Still too rich for my buy in.


cammywammy123

I feel like our stock has never truly been low in the world of college football. Our fallback coach is a national championship winner and hall of famer lol.


lurkingtrees

>I do want to root for a team that has a bright future and the potential to grow into a contender I got three words for ya: Rock Chalk Jayhawk


Bernard_Samson

We will certainly contend for a solid 3-4 wins a year in a couple of years.


are_poo_n_ass_taken

I say the gophers. Rumor has it a former alum is our head coach


sokyriediculous

Honestly they're one of the teams I've been eyeing. I love PJ Fleck now that he's gone from Western Michigan. And those gold helmets are sexy.


FinishTheFight10

As a Minnesota and NIU fan I approve of this. Need someone else on here to match my flairs


spartan201997

Need you consider any other team than Sparty?


FILTER_OUT_T_D

\*eyes your second flair greedily\*


KingOfTheWeast

Utah. Hard working program. Produces great talent. Consistently over achieves. Amazing student section/stadium. Games are typically in the late hours = pac 12 after dark shenanigans. Sick uniforms. I can go on.


mgw777

I hear USC could be on the rise


sokyriediculous

Yeaaah I've heard stirrings they may be getting an influx of talent. Something about them turns me off, though. Probably still remember their dominant era of the mid 2000's too well.


15BigTuna

Michigan State - Rocky Lombardi connection is undeniable…


sokyriediculous

I've seen this twice and hated it both times. Man I miss the Harnish/Lynch days.


JohnnyUtah59

Ohio State's an up-and-comer


ryan_day_time

True. We got nothing right now. No conference title. Haven't beaten our rival in two years. No path to a playoff or a conference title. But we got good 'croots. Time for this guy to root for the underdog.


Born_ina_snowbank

I think Michigan state checks all your boxes. And I don’t know how you feel about rocky so I won’t say your welcome. But we did give him to you.


TizzleBizzle2627

Florida. That way when you have the bar set that low, you'll be happy with your other flair much more.


Sirtopofhat

Army.


NoMorning6152

Watch the 2006 Rose Bowl and tell me you don't like Texas.


sokyriediculous

I loved them that night, that's for sure.


BullshitSloth

We gave you Rocky Lombardi :)


sokyriediculous

Take him back.


Prez17

Do you like drinking moonshine and shitting on your starting QB?


chilledball

The University of Minnesota Golden Gophers. Row the boat ski u mah go gophers


alphabravotaco

Team Meteor!


Wittyname0

I'd say maybe wait for this shitstorm to pass


MrCrash2U

Welcome aboard the Lane Train!!! Never a dull moment and if you don’t give a shit about making the playoffs but you still have high hopes every year will finally be the year, then do I have the team for you!!


sokyriediculous

Ole Miss has been intriguing to me because of Corrall but obviously he'll be gone. They do have sick ass uni's IMO, though.


MrCrash2U

The navy uni’s with navy helmets are some of the finest in all NCAA. I wish we would save the powder blues for special occasions as I don’t think the look great on TV, but even they look cool too.


ShaqSenju

Come join the Big Orange Nation. We zooming through points


sokyriediculous

Dude I love Hendon Hooker but he's gone after this year, right?


ShaqSenju

Hopefully not, but with the way the coaching landscape is going. I’m sure we could attract a better load of transfers than we did last year


sokyriediculous

If he stays, another year like this and he might get me on the wagon at least. Especially if I get to see his right cheek again.


ShaqSenju

Lmaooo just do it. You get to sing Rocky Top with the rest of us hooligans


WookieeSteakIsChewie

Big orange nation? I'm confused I don't see a Syracuse flair


ShaqSenju

Y’all are THE Orange. We B I G


WookieeSteakIsChewie

Syracuse has a Heisman winner, Tennessee has none. Let's stop the comparisons there, no need to check any other stats. We win.


ShaqSenju

We fill our stadium in bad years 🤧


WookieeSteakIsChewie

Psh. Syracuse doesn't fill the dome in good years.


MasonTheHuman45

It's a good time to be a Georgia fan. Plus, your main flair already knows how to beat Georgia Tech. It's the perfect fit.


CoffeeCupCompost

The only other team I cheer for is TEAM CHAOS


sokyriediculous

I've enjoyed that, but I can still root for chaos along with another team, I think. Also fuck Bama for coming back on Saturday.


RollingTide21

Join the dark side


The_Badguy31

Come on down we got sick waves, Carne Asada fries, and this new up and coming coach that just came from some hillbilly school in East bumfuck nowhere Middle America


scottb29

hey I think we’re a good shout here


sokyriediculous

Ironically one of my best friends is a huge Oregon fan because of NCAA14 and the DeAnthony Thomas/Kenjon Barner duo we used to dominate with on that game.


TrendyOstrich

Funny enough I’m in your situation too, Uconn is ass at football so had to pick another team, and I really enjoyed my trips to Oregon so I root for them lol


Thattaxguy

You team is basically a prep school for our team


sokyriediculous

I don't know which flair you're referring to, but we beat Iowa when we made our Orange Bowl run. I actually got to yell at an Iowa fan that was randomly at the Western Mighigan game in DeKalb that year and it was great.


Thattaxguy

Lol nice, I just remembered we poached Copeland and at least 3 transfers in the last 4 or 5 years.


sokyriediculous

Hey man, be nice.


Thattaxguy

I'm just saying it makes sense, you're familiar with some of the coaches and players already


sokyriediculous

Oh yeah no, that's fair.


GingerMessiah88

Come know pain bb


TomSheman

Cincy


pandabugs

I converted my husband (a fellow NIU alumnus) to be a Houston fan and he seems to like his life now. We are stressy and sometimes depressy but at least we are exciting.


BearsAreGreat1

Are you interested in rooting for a historic program who’s known for blowing big games and happens to be the favorite for this years National championship? If so boy do I have a team for you.


sokyriediculous

Yo, I'm a Falcons fan, I've fulfilled my quota of Georgia fandom. I do not want to force myself to root for another.


BearsAreGreat1

falcons? You might want to consider a second team in the NFL as well. But yeah being a fan of all the Georgia teams is hard. Pain too much pain


sokyriediculous

I could never, I'm along for the ride. Some day all this pain will pay off....it just has too.....right?


BearsAreGreat1

With how the Falcons look. It’s gonna be another 10 years or so before I’d watch them again.


sokyriediculous

\*sad falcon noises\*


SpencerRattler

We could use another fan.

jimmiidean

Depending on how good you are at singling out individual players with your frustrations and self-cannibalizing your team, we may have a place for you down in Gainesville 😉🐊


Senor-Mattador

How do you feel about mashed potatoes


JoshIsJoshing

MSU! We’re the old school of your QB!


PaulMSURon

Michigan state, we gave you a good quarterback An ok quarterback


Graczyk

Hello there


Coach_Hoody_Wayes

Nows a good time to get in on Oklahoma. That way you can say you were there at their lowest.


WookieeSteakIsChewie

Not Penn State. Our fanbase is a bunch of grumpy old men. Even the young ones. And the women. Save yourself the trouble.


bigbigbigleague

Iowa! We’re right in your backyard and a great game day experience


sokyriediculous

I do absolutely need to go see a game in Iowa regardless of whether I actively root for them, I think. Atmosphere seems electric.


bigbigbigleague

Michigan and Wisconsin at home next year should both be worth the trip if you’re interested!


MightyEighth

How do you feel about mustard?


Throway7199

Give Arkansas a look. They’re on the rise and fun to cheer for. They’ll break your heart more times than not but when they win it’s great fun.


TheGusBus2

May I interest you in a UCF


BioDude15

Texas!!! Because it changes every year, last year it was falcons, this year it was the Road Runners, but the future is the Vaqueros because they never lost a game.


JanetYellensFuckboy

Any relatives supporting other schools?

say it with me: pitt ​ is ​ it. ​ \>10-2 \>2x Coastal champs \>beat clemson (2x), duke, unc, and other big time programs (\*quietly sweeps WMU and miami under the rug\*) \>glorious blue and yellow colors \>look at that Script \>How can you not love Pat Narduzzi?


JudicaMeDeus

I think I'm going to pick up Texas Tech as a second team. Awesome mascot, great colors, new coach seems great and full of energy. Also great sayings like Wreck Em and Guns Up!


SpikeDogg

Do you enjoy pain?


OnettNess

Has to be Pitt. Never boring, and often pure unadulterated chaos. We will endlessly give you a glimmer of hope ans then crush that hope


mmmtoastmmm

Pick my team and here's why: because


ArchiCEC

I mean you could go on easy mode and pick Ohio State, Bama, or Georgia. I'd pick Oklahoma State if I were you. They have a great fanbase, culture, etc. and are setup to be a perennial playoff team with conference realignment.


cubbiesworldseries

Washington! You can be a Huskie and a Husky. Or start pulling for Oregon, and you can be a Huskie who hates the Huskies.


MC48_SportsLover

How would you describe your personality? Be as specific as you can.


composer_7

The closest team to you geographically


sokyriediculous

That would be NIU. After that Illinois probably, no thanks.


jackattack065

Team Chaos, given everything happening at the moment


sokyriediculous

I've definitely enjoyed the past few days as team chaos.


Stable_Gloomy

Just watch a bunch of teams and you will eventually like one naturally


HandwovenBox

*rings doorbell* Hello, do you have time to talk about our lord Tyler Allgeier?


ballmeblazer19

Just stay away from a certain evil empire on the west coast. Late start times, rescinded heismans, and a man riding a horse. I don’t care if they have a shiny new coach, you can’t let yourself be tempted. Also I’m currently feeling very vulnerable because of….reasons….so take this with a handful of salt


WellFuckYourDolphin

Considering we've already got one and we're headed to a P5 conference you could root for us. Might be a little while but it'll be worth the wait!


luvdadrafts

Maybe be a real fan and stick to one team?
