The Red Sox are in last place and have the worst (or 30th best )pitching staff in MLB.
The Celtics are among the oldest teams in the NBA and are fading fast.
The Patriots window is also closing as it been 7+ years since they have won a Super Bowl.
Then there is Boston College who routinely finishes at the bottom of the ACC in both football and basketball.
Then you have the SEC who currently has the reigning National Champions in basketball in the Kentucky Wildcats.
In baseball the South Carolina Gamecocks have won the last two National Championships.
And of course the SEC owns football as between the Alabama Crimson Tide, LSU Tigers, Florida Gators, and Auburn Tigers,they have the won the last 6 titles in a row.
Armpit of America ?
You're just another bitter envious northerner.
Good day sir !
This is where the mentality of SEC country is vs. the rest of America.
SEC fan cheers for all SEC teams which now encompasses 14 teams(I believe).
People like Detox and myself support ONE city, or ONE division 1 college team. I understand maybe supporting a second division 1 college team for moral reasons or maybe a friend or family member went there. But I can never understand supporting the rest of the conference.
I'm a Michigan State fan. Occasionally I would like to see Michigan when a game(pretty much the N.D. and Ohio State games). But the rest of the year I'm not cheering for them.
I can't stand Ohio State. I can't stand their fans. Their mentality and arrogance and nothing made me more happy than seeing the whole Tressel/Pryor thing unfold.
The only way I would ever cheer for them in a game is if OSU's winning somehow benefited Michigan State. That is it, no exceptions. I even enjoy watching them getting pummeled against arrogant SEC football teams year in and year out.
What I could never do though is cheer for them. I just don't understand how SEC teams can cheer for their rivals like that or take satisfaction in another school in their conference winning a national title.
Vandy isn't hanging a basketball banner because Kentucky won the title. Same for Georgia because Bama won a football title.
So I definitely agree that life is different in SEC country and you're correct that northerners aren't going to understand.
I'm just not sure that anyone is envious of watching their rivals win a national title. I sure as garbage wasn't bragging about Michigan co-national title in '97 or Ohio State's gift title in '02.
Did the LSU fans throw Bama a parade when they brought the title home?
