Default Texas Colleges

Just wondering what type of college fans are on this board. So what Texas team do you root for and what is your favorite out of state team in college?

Mine are
Texas-Texas A&M University
Out of State-Florida State University

Texas- BAYLOR BEARS Sic Em Bears Yes I know we stink, but we've improved one game a year the past couple years. In 8 years we could be undefeated.

Out of State - No real preference. Just like to watch a good game.

In State: UH Coog fan

Out of State: UH when on the road!!

Only bandwagon fans have more than on "team"...I mean, if you have a favorite team (synonomous with one)....you only have one team....not three others that you like. Well, unless you like OU, Miami, LSU, USC or any other team in Nat'l contention..that way, when they go to the N-Champ, you can say how big a fan of them you are...then you just rotate teams annually depending on how well each is doing!

I Bleed Scarlet (UH Red)....now and forever!

Freshman at Texas State (formerly Southwest Texas State) so even though we're division II and likely pretty bad I don't really have a choice. Other than that I'm a Longhorn fan. If I was choosing an out of state team, I usually go for UGA and Georgia Tech to do well.

You are actually D-I AA...not DII, so that might be the root of the problem.

BTW, what's the deal with all of the SWT students being UT fans? Why not be proud of your school's team? If you like UT so much, why don't you just go there?? And if you don't go there because you could not get in...then why would you give a rat's "butt" about them? Oh nevermind...it might be because the have gone 9-4 the last three years.

I've only been up here since the 18th so I'm still learning things.

Of course I'm going to go for the team here over all others, what really happened is all through school everyone was sort of divided up between UT and A&M, and I went to the UT side for whatever reason and have stuck there ever since. In any case I don't think UT ever plays SWT so it shouldn't be much of an issue.

As for not being able to get into UT, probably not as I slacked off throughout HS and didn't apply anywhere except SWT.

T-State must first get there avg crowds to be above max capacity (15K) in order to be considered for D-IA bump. They changed their unis and got away from the "directional" school name (South West Texas). Their Fieldhouse has gone through some vast changes (multi-million $ upgrades), so recruiting has been up, but the need attendence to increase as well to be considered for the jump. I think the D-Ia schools are tired of all the new entrants, something like 15 since 1999!

They have made some great advances towards the change. I hope they succeed...fiance'e is an alumnus and it would be great to have our two schools battle it out in the future....so I can rub it in her face...naturally! Baseball and basketball are the only "big-time" sports they compete in, but football....well there are just no substitutes!

Does this mean if you went to a small university that you are not allowed to like a Division I team. I went to TLC (now TLU), when I was there they cut football, recently the brought it back, Div. III. But I root for Texas, I still support TLC, but its been a while since they been on TV (like NEVER). So I started watching UT years ago, and just started liking them (more than 3 years ago, about 20 years). That doesn't mean I'm not proud of my school, just don't always have the opportunity to see them.

PS I also like UH, love their coach and the style of ball they play; very exciting. But I guess I better stop since I didn't attend there.

I have one team that's "my team" and that's UH (of course, I'm a sucker for a team with the word "Houston" somewhere in the name) and another that was my dad's team. He was from Alabama and a big Crimson Tide fan.

I've got to disagree with you a little MikeMC on the "more than one team" thing. I believe you're right at heart of course but on a technicality I think it's possible to say "______ is my team, and I also "like" _______ and ________".

For me that would be "UH is my team, but I also like Alabama". Now if UH is playing Alabama there's no question that I want to see the Cougars win but when they're not on opposite sides I like to see Alabama on the winning end of their score.

Actually, it's been more like...

2001 - 11-2 (with a 52-26 win over UH)
2002 - 11-2 (with a 41-11 win over UH)
2003 - 10-3

But what happens when you go to several different schools? By the time I'm done with my degree, I could have 5 "favorite" schools. Should I pick one of them, be considered a bandwagon for that school and ignore the others?

I'll just stick with my childhood favorite instead...

In-state - University of Texas - I'm on my way out the door to head to Austin w/in the hour. Should be a good time. Any others going?

Out-of-state - Colorado State University - I had to live in Colorado for a year and it happen to be during CU's MNC run (during the infamous "5th down" season). Having to hear all the Buff's BS was not a pleasant experience. So rooting for CSU was my way of rooting against CU.
