    Wisconsin Badgers because i'm from there.

    Florida Gators (only their football team) because they're fun as hell to watch.

    Notre Dame. I went to school there for three years, and Notre Dame games are really really fun to go to. After Lambeau Field, Notre Dame Stadium is the best place to watch football, and is the only stadium in football with almost as much tradition....maybe even more.

    The 30 for 30 ESPN put on about them was fascinating.

    Nobody has swagger like that anymore.

    Notre Dame. No particular reason, was amazed with their tradition, their colors and what they represent...

    They're the most similar to the Green Bay Packers NCAA-wise...

    I'm from Brazil so no. That shouldn't be an assumption, since I did saw a game at Lambeau field...

    But I was never into college football... Only started watching in 2005, and last year was the first season I watched pretty much every game.

    Brazil? Awesome. Notre Dame Stadium is the only football venue that is as close to awesomeness as Lambeau Field is.

    Getting Psyched for the World Cup then huh?

    Fav. NCAA Football team = MSU Spartans.... they always look like they can make a run at the Big 10 title in the start of the year but then usually blow it 5 or 6 games in..... Fan because my whole family went there.... haha but not me I went to go to Lake Superior State = Hockey

    NCAA team I hate = Michigan.... They have no respect for anyone and they're a bunch of rich kids! Since the Appalachian State game they have just looked like bums and I'm LOVING IT!

    Kinda...

    Care more about my own soccer team than about the country's... During Wolrd Cup is pretty much the only time I watch Brazil play, and cheer for them.

    I know about South Bend. I'm not exactly an avid fan, but know about the before the game happenings, about the traditions (gold dust) and such.

    Yeah, I like them because they're so similar to the Packers.

    Even last year, they were eerie close to us. Playmakers at offense, a great, very careful QB, but a lacking D, a TERRIBLE OL and lack of focus and concentration.

    But after the Tampa game, the Packers changed, and the Irish remained the same...

    I didn't like Weiss. I thought he was a worse version of MM: a great play designer, a stupend QB coach, but someone who couldn't get the best of his team.

    MM eventually could, and he paid much more attention to the D, because he didn't have almost anything to do with it.

    Weiss, on the other hand...

    Kyle McCarthy was our greatest playmaker on D. Enough said...

    Yeah....McCarthy was always in the right place at the right time on defense. Mantai Teo will be a beast at LB for the Irish next season. I am also glad that Weiss is gone.

    McCarthy was good. But he wouldn't start in a lot of teams. He missed tackles, he wasn't fast, he didn't hit hard...

    I'd still rather have him than Mays, though. I hate Taylor Mays.

    Wisconsin Badgers, from wisconsin and have season tickets to Hockey and football. Other than Wi, I cheer for the U. I cant stand Notre Dame, but I dont think its worth going into, no one will win the argument.

    I am bidding on a game worn Juice Williams jersey from last season.

    How are the games down there? I think I might go to one next season.

    I love the games. A lot of energy and the crowd is great even when the team isn't. Definitely worth the trip.

    My favorites California, the Golden Bears. Pretty good history... back in the late 40's early 50's...I do have to confess I hopped on the bandwagon in '04, but have been watching their ups and downs ever since..they sure as hell produced a damn good QB and potentially a great running back!

    I root for Wisconsin because I'm from there... I get disappointed because they are good enough to compete in the Big Ten each year, but never good enough to challenge for a NCS in sports. Other then them, I really like the Auburn Tigers. I started watching them when Wisconsin played them in some bowls, just kind of stuck with me. So when I am not saying
    "On Wisconsin" it is "WAR DAMN EAGLE".
