2nd favorite team in the Big 10

2nd favorite team in the Big 10 


I gotta cheer for Richard Pitino because he is gonna be our coach once his dad retires, but I LOVE Bo Ryan.  I wish we could get you on our schedule, though I would be scared to death to see you all in the tournament.  I think next year could down to UofL and Wisconsin.

Rumor has it that there an opening for a home and home on the Badgers schedule for the coming year. Why don't you let Coach Pitino know!

Isn't it weird that a grown man has a giant picture of a shirtless teenager as a signature or is that just the world we live in? 

This is the biggest I could find frown

Blasphemy, I know. But it's Michigan State for me. Basketball only, though. I like Izzo. And I have a close family member who's an MSU graduate.

I don't have a favorite second team, only one that matters are the Badgers. Can't think of a reason to like anybody but the Badgers

This has been my attitude for years, too, but if forced to pick, I think Nebraska grew on me a little bit last year.

Yeah, I have never been too thrilled about having a 'second favorite' B1G team.  If I were forced to choose, though, I would also say Nebraska.

My second favorite team in the Big 10 used to be Indiana, back when they were consistently good under Coach Knight.  Now that Tom Crean is their coach, they are my least favorite.  With that said, I do love the fact that Tom Crean is their coach, and I hope they keep him for a long, long time.

IOWA................ when Dr. Tom Davis was in the coaches box.   I loved that diamond press and his bigs always improved much like UW's.  In fact its not a stretch to say that Tom Davis had a significant impact on Bo's style particularly at Platteville.  Davis was a Platteville guy way back as well.

My entire family went to Illinois and I lived in Champaign for much of my childhood, so I will always have a soft spot for them (despite their posters on this site who seem to hate UW as much as anyone). I guess I root for them whenever a win wouldn't affect UW adversely, and it almost never does these days unless they're playing each other.

Everyone else in the Big Ten can eat it. Although I do admit it was fun watching Nebraska bball fans getting so amped last season. In fact, I wasn't even upset after UW lost that crazy game vs them at the end of the year. I was really rooting for them to make the dance.

Wisconsin is probably my 2nd favorite team in the conference.  I try not to play favorites but I have an affinity for smart, well coached basketball teams that don't make mental mistakes.

In terms of just pure feel good nature, though, I am rooting for Nebraska.  They've been down for so long and I love their new arena and I really like their coach as a person.  Just a genuine guy.  He's also funny and I find it amusing that he tweets at halftime of games.

Re: 2nd favorite team in the Big 10 


I will pull for every BIG 10 team that gets a bowl bid or an invite to dance because their success reflects well on the conference, and by extension the Badgers. I will also admit respect for a team that comes together and has a great season. But there is NO room in my heart for a 2nd favorite conference team. It would be like telling someone, "I want to beat the snot out of you until you beg me to stop, then beat you a little more. But don't take it personally because I actually kind of like you."

Re: 2nd favorite team in the Big 10 


This is offensive.  Russ Smith is my favorite player EVER and why does it matter what he is or isn't wearing?????  Is it weird for the media to take pics like this of him???????  Because they took it, not me.  I don't have a problem with it but obviously you do.

Growing up in Louisville, I cheered for Indiana, I LOVED Bobby Knight, he was AWESOME. But as a Louisville fan, I HATE Crean and could never cheer for him. I hope we kick butt when we FINALLY play them next year.
