I'm a fan of the Coogs because... I went to UH. I'm going to pull for them no matter what. I spent a couple of semesters at ASU and I pull for the Sun Devils, too. If I were a college football fan (which I'm not), those would be my main schools.

I have a friend whose daughters went to UConn. He and his wife became HUGE UConn women's basketball fans because of that. They still follow the team, go to all the home games, travel to some of the road games, paint their faces up even though their kids graduated years ago.

When you're actually IN school, it's that much more intense.
Absolutely. Back in my school days I used to like Alabama; Bear Bryant. In fact I was accepted at both Alabama and Tennessee, but was steered toward UT by my parents. Obviously UT and UofA are SEC rivals, so I learned to hate 'Bama (Bryant had died anyway) and love Big Orange. To this day I follow UT women's basketball and men's football. I root on the men's basketball team as well, but don't really care for basketball to begin with, I just got interested in the women's team because of how dominant they were.

I also grew up in NoVa, near D.C., so I like my Virginia teams and Georgetown.
